Green Cars Petitions
9 years ago
I know we should turn to alternative transportation, but America doesn't seem to be ready to make that leap. I think they are ready for green cars though. The need for fuel-efficient cars has never been greater. With just four percent of the world's population, the United States consumes a quarter of global oil consumption; U.S. passenger vehicles alone guzzle 10 percent of the world's oil! We spent $250 billion on this oil habit last year alone, and as a result we're less secure, more polluted, and economically weaker. Existing technology such as advanced hybrid engines could dramatically decrease our oil consumption -- if only more automakers would grasp the urgency of the situation and incorporate efficient technology in many more vehicles. Think about the people, places, and things that would be better off if automakers do their part to help us break our oil dependence and transition to a more sustainable future. Then encapsulate these images into your favorite art form, or just a simple note, and add that to this petition. We'll deliver your comments and images to Detroit and Tokyo. We want Bill Ford, Rick Wagoner, and the other CEOs to truly grasp what's at risk... and to respond. http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/865259740 Please sign and thank you.
