A Plan To Power The Earth With 100% Renewable Energy by 2030

Initiative Objective

In order to stop fracking, we need to have an alternative. I have started a petition on the White House “We, the people” Website ordering the US Department of Energy to conduct a study on transitioning to renewable energy by 2030 without fossil fuel or nuclear power.
I wanted to let you know about a new petition I created on We the People, a new feature on WhiteHouse.gov, and ask for your support. Will you add your name to mine? If this petition gets 100,000 signatures by March 24, 2013, the White House will review it and respond!

We the People, allows anyone to create and sign petitions asking the Obama Administration to take action on a range of issues. If a petition gets enough support, the Obama Administration will issue an official response.

You can view and sign the petition here:


Here's some more information about this petition:

Conduct a study on converting the US to renewable energy by 2030 without fossil fuel or nuclear power. Dr. Jacobson at Stanford University and Dr. Delucchi at the University of California at Davis, in their Nov. 2009 Scientific American article : http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=a-path-to-sustainable-energy-by-2030 and in their March 2011 articles in Energy Policy journal http://www.stanford.edu/group/efmh/jacobson/Articles/I/JDEnPolicyPt1.pdf
have outline a plan for the world to convert to renewable energy without fossil fuel or the use of nuclear power, using existing technology. Germany has adopted a similar plan and will obtain 80% of their energy from renewable sources and shut down all of their nuclear power plants by 2022. The German government, the Chancellor and the Bundestag (parliament) from Conservative to Green, left to right are united behind this plan. Why can't we do that in the United States? How did the politicians in Germany overcome the lobbying and campaign money from the energy and the electric utilities?

Just copy and past the link above or click on it and sign the petition. http://wh.gov/vmC3

I have 21 days, up until March 22, 2013, to gather 100,000 signatures.
