Here's some more information about this petition:
Conduct a study on converting the US to renewable energy by 2030 without fossil fuel or nuclear power. Dr. Jacobson at Stanford University and Dr. Delucchi at the University of California at Davis, in their Nov. 2009 Scientific American article : http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=a-path-to-sustainable-energy-by-2030 and in their March 2011 articles in Energy Policy journal http://www.stanford.edu/group/efmh/jacobson/Articles/I/JDEnPolicyPt1.pdf
have outline a plan for the world to convert to renewable energy without fossil fuel or the use of nuclear power, using existing technology. Germany has adopted a similar plan and will obtain 80% of their energy from renewable sources and shut down all of their nuclear power plants by 2022. The German government, the Chancellor and the Bundestag (parliament) from Conservative to Green, left to right are united behind this plan. Why can't we do that in the United States? How did the politicians in Germany overcome the lobbying and campaign money from the energy and the electric utilities?

Citizens of the United States should sign this petition because the Earth is in peril from the effects of global warming from the burning of fossil fuels. We need to transition to renewable energy with all deliberate speed by having the US Department of Energy study the feasability studies of Dr. Jacobson and Dr. Dellucchi to convert the economies of the planet to 100% renewable energy by 2030 without fossil fuel or the use of nuclear power using existing technology. The Germans are doing this now and will obtain 80% of their energy from renewable sources by 2016 and shut down all of their nuclear power plants by 2022. If the Germans can do this we can do it. After all President Obama said in his State of the Union address that we need to take action to stop global warming. Here is an opportunity to hold the President to his word.
We have less than 30 days to gather 100, 000 signatures on the Whitehouse.gov site "We, the people" and the Whitehouse will have to respond.Here is a chance for everyone to get involved and support something positive and be for something for a change and not just against something. The URL is:
