New Energy Now sign now

We the undersigned acknowledge the following truths:

1) While the United States continues its 'war on terror,' it is concurrently purchasing and consuming increasing amounts of oil from precisely the same nations that fund said terror, therefore underwriting the expenses of its own enemy;

2) While the United States continues its various campaigns to curb pollution and reduce global warming, it is concurrently purchasing and consuming increasing amounts of oil, one of the foremost contributors to global warming and pollution, therefore effectively canceling out any positive efforts made in reducing these ills;

3) While the United States continues its efforts to reverse its trade deficit and stabilize its economy, it is concurrently purchasing and consuming increasing amounts of oil, a large portion of which is obtained from politically unstable and volatile regions, therefore perpetually keeping its economy in a state of dependence and unsoundness.

In light of these three truths, we the undersigned deem it no longer acceptable for the United States to continue in such contradictory and self-defeating actions, and resolve that is unequivocally necessary and beneficial for the United States to reverse its oil consumption habits.

Such a reversal will only be possible by creating new energy sources to replace any energy that is currently obtained from oil. Therefore, we the undersigned suggest the following proposal to aid in transitioning the United States to a nation powered by alternate sources:

A) Excess profits from U.S. oil companies should be set aside and placed into a new, private New Energy Corporation, which would be given the responsibility of funding the research and development of new alternative energy technologies;

B) Because the New Energy Corporation would be privately owned, it would posess the first benefit of being eligible for further capital from other investors, and the second benefit of being free of government bureaucracy and red-tape;

C) In all of this, the government could remain revenue-neutral with no new taxes being created.

We the undersigned resolve that these actions should be taken immediately, to begin reversing the trends that increasing oil consumption has been perpetuating. We call for action now, for we are no longer willing to sit and watch in silence as our country is held captive because of its dependence on oil.
