I notice there a few Care2 groups on this subject so I will post them here as I see them.

It would be good if we could post links to other websites dealing with this as well.

Here is a Care2 group.

Thanks again for taking a first step with the Center for American Progress Action Fund as we work to help America Kick the Oil Habit. Your request to ExxonMobil, Chevron, BP, Shell, Valero, and ConocoPhillips to double the number of fuel stations selling E85 is not being made alone. Just yesterday a bipartisan group of 16 Senators and Representatives from Michigan asked President Bush to encourage these same companies to increase the number of E85 fuel stations in Michigan.

Our campaign is working. Help keep the pressure on!

In our last email, we asked for your help increasing the number of people taking action to 20,000. Well, we are pleased to report that as of this morning more than 22,500 people have joined the campaign. Thank you for making your voices heard! To keep the pressure on we must continue to grow our numbers:

Email 5 friends right now and ask them to take action!

In addition to our online efforts, we're working hard offline to help convince oil companies and our elected Representatives that they must join us in our effort to Kick the Oil Habit. Last week, John Podesta, President and CEO of the Center for American Progress Action Fund, submitted testimony on Oil Dependence and Economic Risk to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. In his testimony, Podesta described many of the dangers of America's oil addiction. Here is what he said about its implications for our foreign policy:

The defense of the global oil infrastructure is another cost born in large part by the United States. Around the world, the U.S. military is charged with protecting pipelines, refineries, and strategic sea lanes from terrorist or insurgent attack. The Department of Defense has stepped up its arms deliveries and training to forces in Angola and Nigeria. As long as American forces remain in Iraq, a significant number of them will spend their time guarding highly vulnerable pipelines, refineries, loading facilities, trucking routes, and other petroleum installations.

Thank you,

Brian Komar for Kick the Oil Habit and the Center for American Progress Action Fund

Hi folks, please take a look at the link http://passport.panda.org/campaigns/campaign.cfm?uNC=40719484&uCampaignId=1221 and consider signing the petition

It is vital to get projects like Mata de Sesimbra underway, Once it can be proven that these communities not only work, they can be modern and productive too, hopefully there will be countries crying out for them and the next 4 won't be such a struggle! Please support sustainable living today!

anonymous re: Hydrogen Vehicles July 02, 2006 7:27 AM

In San Jose California, they now have hydrogen vehicles.  Granted there not cheap.  But if mass produced and given incentives for fossil fuel cars is the way to go.  No emissions to the Environment. And if big oil gets out of the White house can be done. GM and other American and foreign companies have these vehicles. I believe this is the way to go.   [report anonymous abuse]

put them out of business May 14, 2007 5:18 PM

The best way to hurt rich people is to turn them into poor people.  The best way of ending the petroleum industry is to stop using oil.

Judging by what people drive, I would say that the United States is about 100% Facist.  I have seen no apparent interest in buying hybrids for fuel-efficient cars.  In fact, SUVs keep getting bigger.

What can we do?  I feel like attending Leftists meetings and putting "I'm a Facist and I support George W. Bush" stickers on all the SUVs in the parking lot.

What else?  We can stop the insanity of alcohol from corn.  People are literally starving to death due to increased price of corn for fuel.  It's bad enough we're raping the planet for petroleum; now we're doing the same thing with corn.  I say any elected official who says 'corn' and 'alcohol' in the same sentence should be...no, I better not say or I will be in trouble with the Department of Homeland Security.

Really folks, we need to stop the Republican Party.  Buy a hybrid vehicle.  Practice family planning - the less people, the less consumption of resources.  Eat vegetarian and save the planet.

Imagine powering your home with green power from wind, solar or water.. Now see yourself plugging in a green electric scooter or electric car... also powered by green wind power.

Now both your home and vehicle are 100% green and carbon free. Is this a dream, impossible or to far off? NO! It is here NOW... Al Gore says it can be done, and I agree.. Here is how it can and is happening now.

The easiest way to get green power is to ask for it and get it from your energy provider. This saves a huge amount of money, time and energy compared to buying and installing wind towers,  solar panels, etc.

The best way to get green power is to deregulate your state in terms of energy. Why not give consumers the choice, just like long distance service?

Why force people to stay with an expensive, backwards, stodgy, monopoly that is not providing good customer service and is not buying or installing solar or wind power, much less providing it to customers who ask for it? That is the case with my utility company.

 

If your provider does not offer the green power option, switch providers. You can do this if you live a deregulated energy state such as Texas or New York.. and more are coming soon. 22 states are in the process of deregulating. Check it out...

www.electricityratescompared.info


The above link is one place to check to compare many different companies and electricity rates in deregulated states.

This same company needs Green Energy Consultants nationwide.. in all 50 states. Help people sign up for green power.

The company is growing by 20% per month, so if you want to be with a company that is growing faster than Google, Microsoft and has even better compensation, take a look.


Regular Energy Consultants help residential customers save up to 28% on their energy bill and give away a free vacation coupon just for signing up. If interested, contact me for more details.
