This one's all over the wires: CleanPeace has published its "Declaration of World Energy Independence, Energy Security and Sustainability," and invites you to sign on. The Declaration contains four principles:
Principle One: Make Transitioning to Renewable Energy a Strategic Objective of all Energy Policies.I can certainly agree with all four of these principles (which you can read more about on their site), and support the orginization's efforts. Obviously, significant government effort would make a big difference in US development of alternative energy technology -- we're getting our butts kicked in this particular race. The only thing I'm unclear about is CleanPeace's plans for the Declaration once people have signed it...
Principle Two: Require Equal Funding, Fair Play and Competition in Energy Markets.
Principle Three: Accelerate Construction of Sustainable Energy Infrastructures.
Principle Four: Provide for Peace and Prosperity in Times of Oil Shortages.
