Here is the petition:
We call on our Federal Legislators, the President, and the Inspector General of Department Of Energy to:
- Conduct an INVESTIGATION by independent researchers of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC’s) procedures.
- Based on investigation results, REVISE and UPDATE FERC’s POLICIES to reflect the critical need to decrease fossil fuel reliance and rapidly expand renewable energy technologies.
- Enact a MORATORIUM on new fossil fuel infrastructure approvals by FERC until the investigation is complete and changes are implemented.
