Down With Upton

Wake Upton UP!

sign the petitionMessage to Fred Upton, Chairman, U. S. House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee:
Stop blocking renewable energy initiatives. Stop favoring dirty energy. Your committee needs a chairman who will help lead the nation's transition to CLEAN energy!

Our petition's request:

"Please stop pushing outdated big-oil energy solutions. As Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, you should be one of the nation’s strongest advocates for the business of researching, developing, and producing green energy, not black. If you can't take on that role, please retire."

Please sign the petition.

Fred Upton's leadership failure

As a responsible citizen of the Earth and as Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, Fred Upton should be a leader in the nation's and the planet's transition from dirty energy to clean. Upton's "all of the above" energy policies should incorporate a healthy regard for conservation and for maintaining a clean environment and a healthy ecosystem. Instead, Upton heedlessly serves the interests of the fossil fuel industry without concern for environmental safeguards.

How Upton handles his committee and his leadership role

On his website, Fred Upton says he supports an “all of the above” energy policy. The first three paragraphs of his policy statement promote fossil fuels—the "production of game-changing oil and natural gas reserves," and the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline and more like it. His record shows that when he says "all of the above" he means all except clean renewable energy. sign the petition

Please help demolish Upton’s so-called “all of the above” energy policy and its “new architecture of abundance.”

Clean technology is available.

While we can't completely stop burning fossil fuels right now, our transition to clean energy sources—and toward less reliance on fossil fuels—can and should be moving much faster. Germany recently announced a new record, a day when renewable sources produced 74% of the power used nationwide. Germany did it by developing a long-term transition plan. The USA could do that too. But not if Fred Upton keeps holding us back. Please sign the petition.
