Petition to

THE NATIONAL ENERGY SECURITY ACT PETITION

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Our Founding Fathers foresaw such a time as this wherein our elected officials are in complete and total dereliction of duty and causing irreparable harm to our economy, our National Security and our very way of life with constant partisan bickering and political posturing in the pursuit of personal gain and political power.  This will never end until We the People rally around specific legislative actions and petition our Federal Government to enact the changes we collectively agree upon. We have to make them do what we want. They work for us… we don’t work for them. The National Energy Security Act Petition is a start in that direction and its legislative actions address all aspects of the current energy crisis, which is the primary driving force behind the current inflation crisis, and also addresses the security failures of our current energy policies which leave us completely vulnerable to fuel shortages, food shortages, and devastating cyber-attacks that might even spell the end of our way of life as we know it.  NESA also brings common-sense solutions to a complex set of problems and brings common ground to both sides of the energy debate. NESA is the Green New Deal meets Drill Baby Drill… it benefits ALL Americans, and it is the solution that America has been waiting for from our inept, uninformed, feckless, and self-serving political ruling class for decades now.  Please review The National Energy Security Act here and sign the petition if you agree with its effectiveness… and then share it with your friends and relatives. Join me in pushing back against this band of dysfunctional political degenerates and let’s demand immediate action to drive down energy prices, stop inflation dead in its tracks, and implement TRUE Energy Independence and National Energy Security for all Americans. May God bless you and your loved ones, and may God continue to bless the United States of America   JD Donaghe

Petition to Gavin Newsom

Urge Governor Newsom to Prioritize Our Future Over Profit by Blocking new Fracking Permits

In 2015, California reported having over 56,000 fracking sites, making it the third-largest producers of oil in the U.S. Many other U.S. states such as Vermont, Washington, Maryland, and New York have passed bans against fracking, and countries including Ireland, Germany, France, and Bulgaria have declared a moratorium on fracking nation-wide. California needs to join this fight to phase out fracking and move to cleaner energy sources.  Why should we phase out fracking? Fracking is the process of fracturing bedrock formations by injecting high-pressure liquid to extract gas or oil. In hydraulic fracking, this liquid is a mixture of chemicals and the process uses around 4 million gallons on AVERAGE, and over 90% of it never returns to the surface. This contributes to water scarcity and often heavily contaminates nearby water sources. While California Governor Gavin Newsom has made statements about halting the approval of fracking permits and strengthening public health regulations near oil and gas facilities, these statements have failed to be fulfilled. In the first six months of 2020, California the state-issued 190% more oil and gas drilling permits than in the first six months of Governors Newsom's term.   As youth activists, we are deeply concerned about the welfare of our communities. OUR FUTURE IS AT STAKE. Fracking has contributed to the contamination of water, air pollution, disproportionate impacts on BIPOC communities, and climate change. Legislation needs to change now in order to create a sustainable future for all. We urge Governor Newsom to uphold his previous promises and establish a tangible plan to phase out fracking in California.  [ photo credits: https://www.sierraclub.org/sierra/2019-2-march-april/feature/its-time-for-california-get-out-oil-business ]

Produce Petroleum-Free Individual-Use Skin Protectant

Keep petrol out of our float tanks and tattoos!  Petroleum jelly is a by-product of the crude oil refining process, and is a nonrenewable, not eco-friendly resource. Vaseline is a highly effective, widely available, and cost-effective barrier. However...  You already know that your skin is a sponge - Why would you want an oil by-product on your body? While there is no direct proof that petroleum jelly can cause cancer, U.S. manufacturers aren’t legally required to remove PAH (poly aromatic hydrocarbon, which is a known carcinogen,) and other contaminants from petroleum jelly products. Products containing ingredients such as beeswax, shea butter, cocoa butter, or castor oil can create hydrating protective barrier that is petroleum free. There are already products on the market that do not use petroleum. However, they are in bulk sizing. Although this is wonderful in many applications to cut down on packaging, in industries such as tattooing and flotation therapy, it is necessary to have a sanitary barriers. The current, yet outdated, standard utilizes A&D ointment, Aquaphor, or Vaseline as a barrier between broken skin and its environment. To eliminate the chance of cross-contamination between clients, these products are single-use. Petroleum jelly is not water soluble and in order to filter it out of float tanks, specific additives such as oil-clumping enzymes must be used in order to remove it from the surface of the water.  Petroleum skin products isn’t a good option for fresh tattoos. When used while tattooing, small amounts are absorbed by the body. When used in aftercare, these products are germ and moisture-trapping. They create such a barrier that block a fresh tattoo from getting air.  We want small (~2.5 gram) single use packets of skin protectant that is petroleum free, and in responsible packaging!
