- New Green Energy Deal: 70-80% reduction in Greenhouse Gas emissions by 2020; 90% by 2030 — global technology transfer as defense policy and solution to our foreign debt
- Best available technology for maximum conservation ASAP. Negawatts, you can effectively buy new energy, and replace the need for finding new fossil fuel sources by eliminating your need for it. Pay for negawatts–the costs for eliminating the need for fossil fuel and nuclear energy.
- Energy production as close to end use as possible. This minimizes energy loss over transmission lines and eliminates the need to replace the energy generated, but lost in transmission.
- STOP COAL NOW! No new mines. No new coal plants. Phase out all coal combustion energy production by 2030 (called for by NASA’s James Hansen)
- Immediately halt all mountaintop removal coal mining
- Adopt a carbon pollution tax
- Repeal the Price-Anderson Act of government liability bail-outs for nuclear power plants
- End nuclear power globally
