Sarah Palin's Latest Target: Energy EfficiencySalem-News.com
Even fellow Alaskan Republicans are urging Governor Palin to accept the funds, but she is stubbornly refusing to adopt energy efficiency standards critical for the future of our planet
(ANCHORAGE) - "Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is at it again -- this time, she's the only governor in America to reject almost $29 million in federal stimulus money slated for energy efficiency programs in her state."
Environmental groups are demanding that Governor Palin do the right thing for the planet, according to Care2 and ThePetitionSite Team.
"The money is there for states to strengthen building codes, prioritize energy efficiency and renewable energy, replace streetlights with LED bulbs and incentivize energy savings for customers -- but Governor Palin is rejecting this environmentally sound plan and the money that comes with it for no good reason."
The group says the future of this planet depends on everyone -- including residents of Alaska -- to start conserving energy now.
"And the best way to get started is through government-funded programs like the state energy grants Governor Palin just rejected."
They continued, "Even fellow Alaskan Republicans are urging Governor Palin to accept the funds, but she is stubbornly refusing to adopt energy efficiency standards critical for the future of our planet."
Care2 and ThePetitionSite Team is driving a petition forward to help bring a change to the Alaskan policy.
"Tell Governor Palin: Our planet should not be a pawn in your political game! Accept the $29 million to get a better energy efficiency program going in Alaska."
