No more fossil fuels in Madison!

Postby Tekguy53701 » Thu Apr 04, 2013 9:42 am

Do you think Madison should lead the way in Green Energy?
Sign this petition please. Looking for 100 signatures to deliver to our Alderman to divest Madison from fossil fuels.

This petition starts off with the notion of going "fossil-free," then offers all sorts of suggestions that still use vehicles that rely on fossil fuels.

There are no transit options that don't require the use of fossil fuels at some point in the chain. We can further develop alternatives and make current processes more efficient, but we'll be relying on fossil fuels for a long, long time.

Also, there's no such thing as "Aldermen/women" in Madison.

That was the dumbest petition I've seen in a while. It actually made Leroy seem smart.
