Green Ink: 20,000 NH Residents Call for Carbon Reductions

November 29, 2007

Concord, NH – There's a sea of green ink at the Statehouse today. More than 20,000 citizens from the Granite State have put their names on the line to call for two percent cuts in carbon emissions each year through 2050. The New Hampshire Sierra Club has been collecting the signatures across the state since this summer. Field representative Kurt Ehrenberg says the people they met are looking for answers.

"At state fairs, street fairs, and events all over the state, folks have really gotten behind the idea that New Hampshire needs to be where the solutions come together."

Ehrenberg believes the two percent goal can help stop climate change and fight soaring energy costs.

"Both problems can be solved by first, implementing energy efficiency, which is the cheapest and fastest way to achieve savings and reduction in carbon."

The Sierra Club unveiled the petition at the Legislative Office Building in Concord today. Ehrenberg explains it shows a consensus that voters want solutions for global warming.
