SUPPORT RESOLUTION
for a CITIZEN'S PEACEFUL ENERGY PLAN (SR©CPEP)

WHEREAS, the present global energy policies exploiting coal, oil and nuclear technologies may be contributing to tensions leading to wars and terrorism as well as oppressing indigenous peoples, and

WHEREAS, present fossil fuel combustion of oxygen and production of carbon dioxide may be contributing to global warming and ozone layer depletion, and

WHEREAS, the pollutions and dangers of nuclear and fossil fuel power technologies may threaten the health of life on earth with such things as nuclear waste, acid rain, air pollution, etc., and

WHEREAS, according to the new US National Energy Policy Plan constituted by the 1998 Comprehensive National Energy Strategy (CNES), alternative technologies are available which can effectively ameliorate these problems while increasing America's energy independence, furthering global peace, and

WHEREAS, the United States Government is required by law to seek adequate public input on such Plan (CNES) under the Department of Energy Organization Act which requires the President to "seek the active participation by regional, State, and local agencies and the instrumentalities AND THE PRIVATE SECTOR through public hearings in cities and rural communities and OTHER APPROPRIATE MEANS to insure that the views and proposals of ALL SEGMENTS OF THE ECONOMY are taken into account in the formulation and review of such proposed Plan" [42 USC 7321 SEC.801 (A)(2)], and

WHEREAS, the U.S. Department of Energy only held three public hearings on CNES, each in a major city with little public notice, at which only a total of 58 people from the public testified and total public comments numbered only 313; believing that President Clinton is seeking more public participation in this Plan to address global climate change,

NOW THEREFORE, WE THE UNDERSIGNED, CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, (and undersigned supporters around the world)
DO HEREBY PETITION CONGRESS & THE PRESIDENT TO ACCEPT THE CITIZEN'S PEACEFUL ENERGY PLAN (CPEP)
INTO THE NATIONAL ENERGY POLICY PLAN, INCLUDING,

1) Implementation of a new energy strategy to prevent the US from ever going to war again over oil supplies and to stop oppression of indigenous peoples from imposed mining and waste dumping,

2) Special tax incentives on renewable energy technologies and tax penalties for energy industry pollutions,

3) A ban on new construction of nuclear power plants and a resolve to shut down existing plants in a timely manner,

4) Special funding on the order of $108 million per year for a "crash program" to rapidly research and develop both the promise of new Zero Point Energy (ZPE) technologies alluded to in a DOE letter as the Holy Grail of energy research, and the Low Energy Nuclear Transmutation (LENT) technologies to neutralize radioactive wastes,

5) Allocate funding for an accelerated public education campaign about the ecological and economic benefits of energy conservation, electric vehicles, hybrid vehicles, and other alternative and renewable energy technologies including simple mechanical adjustments to allow gasoline and diesel engines to run on non-polluting biofuels as they were originally designed,

6) Implemention of the "Million Solar Roofs Initiative", with special attention to solar assisted air conditioning for the poor in the sunbelt and to MSRI contributions to the electicity grid,

7) Urgent agricultural reforms, to foster rapid reduction of atmospheric carbon dioxide levels to reduce the greenhouse effect and increase atmospheric oxygen to help replenish the ozone layer, featuring a National Hemp Reform Act for the relegalization and recommercialization of the hemp plant for biofuels, to save trees, and to heal the atmosphere in a revival of the USDA's 1941 "Hemp for Victory" program to effect the widespread cultivation of this extremely bioefficient and useful plant (for the overall majority of Earth's paper, fiber, food, fuel, medicines, chemical feedstocks, and composite construction materials) by ending the fraud on the Congress and the people whereby since 1937 this historically valuable plant has been outlawed as "marihuana". This is not an advocacy of using this plant as a drug.
