We call for the United States Government, The Office of the President, The United States Congress and Various Government Agencies to act on the precedent of the Manhattan Project and act immediately to rapidly develop and fund a U.S. Alternative Energy Task Force, made up of top experts in the area of alternative energy from the public and private sectors.
The purpose of this
This website and associated petition neither endorses nor opposes any particular form of alternative energy, but rather is focused on one sole purpose;
We call for the creation of a team of alternative energy experts, from the academic, public and private sectors, selected, funded and managed by the government to create a viable alternative energy source that can quickly and effectively be brought to market.
America is a crisis oriented society. We never seem to solve a problem or take an action until our backs are against the wall. Once we are in that position, we have an amazing ability to develop solutions. History shows us again and again that this is a fundamental part of the American psyche.
We have arrived at such a time in our history. Gasoline is over $3.00 a gallon, crude oil flirts with the $70 a barrel mark, international demand for fuel increases daily, natural disasters interrupt supplies, speculators disrupt normal market forces, political unrest and terrorism threaten oil producing regions and yet we have made no concerted effort to solve the problem.
