Why should we re-power America with clean energy? Watch the above short video. Dirty coal and oil lobbyists are the ban of our existence! Repower America is urging all of us to support the plan of achieving a 100% clean power mix over the next ten years.
See what Vice President Gore has to say about why we need to support this plan.
But what is the plan, you might think?
According to the Repower America,
“Immediately commence a clean energy plan that includes efficiency, generation, transmission, and transportation.
- Energy Efficiency: A national upgrade to eliminate waste, save money, and improve comfort. Make every bit of energy we produce work harder for us.
- Renewable Generation: Accelerate the ramp-up of clean, renewable electricity sources through policies that support increased private and public investment in technologies that work, like wind, solar, and geothermal.
- Unified National Smart Grid: Modernize transmission infrastructure so that clean electricity generated anywhere in America can power homes and businesses across the nation; Build national electricity ‘interstates’ that move power quickly and cheaply to where it is needed; Establish local smart grids that buy and sell power from households and support clean plug-in cars.
- Automobiles: Transition to efficient plug-in cars that ‘fuel’ with clean electricity. In combination with the unified grid, a nationwide fleet of plug-in vehicles also provides a key source of electricity storage.”
Still have doubts? Everyone should support this plan whether or not you believe in Climate Change or not. What we need to do is be less dependent on foreign oil and dirty coal. This is our future. Let’s power it together.
