The fossil/nuclear corporations have been given human rights but no human responsibilities. They're about to gut our most crucial means of communication.
They're programmed to do just one thing: make money. If they can profit from killing us all, they will.
Ironically, we now have the technological power to get to Solartopia -- a socially just, green-powered planet.
But our political, economic and industrial institutions answer to Big Money, not to us or the Earth.
This petition was personally delivered to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon last Nov. 7. We've never gotten a response.
Meanwhile, Tokyo Electric Power makes huge profits from the "clean-up" at Fukushima. It's turned much of the labor force over to organized crime. And more than 300 tons of radioactive liquid still pour into the Pacific every day, while downwind children suffer a 40-times-normal thyroid cancer rate.
A powerful new insider report says another Fukushima could easily occur at California's Diablo Canyon, surrounded by FIVE known earthquake faults. Similar dangers plague other reactors worldwide.
Nuclear power makes global warming worse.
So does coal, oil and gas.
March organizer Bill McKibben says fracked gas is just as bad for global warming as coal. Oil is even worse.
But we're in the midst of a great revolution. Solartopian technologies -- solar, wind, tidal, geothermal, ocean thermal, sustainable bio-fuels, mass transit, increased efficiency -- are all plunging in price and soaring in efficiency. They can completely green-power our Earth. They can allow individuals and communities to control our energy supply, democratizing our society.
But they can't come without transforming the corporation.
