36 Organizations Push for Strong 2030 Renewable Energy Push

36 leading organizations recently teamed up to “fight for a new American Clean Energy Agenda and create a renewable energy reality by 2030,” anti-nuclear organization NIRS (Nuclear Information and Resource Service) states. And it’s about time, isn’t it? Many of these organizations have been fighting for clean energy for a long time, actually, but it’s good to see them forming a united squad. And we can only hope that the number of organizations in the squad will grow rapidly.

Here’s a little more on the impetus for this, from the one of the press releases:

“Fed up with the undue influence of the energy companies, utilities, lobbyists and other interests that are making it impossible for Washington to move forward decisively in achieving America’s clean energy future, Nuclear Information and Resource Service and 35 other citizen organizations with more than 1.1 million combined members are joining forces to advance a nine-point ‘American Clean Energy Agenda’ and to push for a serious renewable energy agenda no matter who is the next President or which party controls Congress.”

The group was organized by Civil Society Institute (CSI) and the Environmental Working Group (EWG).

The American Clean Energy Agenda can be read online, and I think it’s worth a read, but here’s a quick summary of what it is pushing for:

…phasing out nuclear power, natural gas, coal and industrial biomass in favor of efficient use of renewable, non-polluting resources; opposition to a “clean energy standard” that includes coal, nuclear, oil, gas and unsustainable biomass; retooling federal “loan guarantees” to make smarter investments in renewable energy; greater emphasis on renewable energy and energy efficiency  programs; and avoiding a future in which Americans suffer the consequences of mountaintop mining for coal and fracking of shale gas that is then exported for use in other nations.
