World Changing’s Inaugurate Change

Worldchanging has a letter to President-elect Barack Obama:

With your help, we will show that the people of the United States are ready and willing to accept this challenge. And we will ask Obama to issue a call to action with an inaugural address that set specific goals to do the following:

* Set a national cap on greenhouse gas emissions
* Launch a national campaign to curb sprawl and encourage smart growth
* Set national building standards that will require all buildings to be carbon neutral by 2030
* Redirect all funding and support for fossil fuels into clean energy development
* Give policy support to small farms, local food, and better food quality in schools and low-income neighborhoods
* Take a leadership position in international climate, trade and development talks
