MAUI CAN LEAD THE WORLD IN BEING THE 1ST 100% OIL FREE ECONOMY!
With abundant natural energies, a small island topography that includes almost all of the world’s climate zones and an outdated oil-based electricity system that has become the nation’s most expensive, Maui is the ideal place in the world for developing and showcasing the clean energy future. By presenting our solutions to almost 2.3 million affluent visitors, we can inspire and change people all over the world.
By declaring it a county and state policy to make Maui oil-free by 2020, government can set the stage for a surge of innovation at the private and public level. Maui can be the center of the world for clean energy technologies, attracting visitors from all over the planet to study our model economy and bring technologies and investments with them.
No place on earth has a policy to become oil-free by 2020. Iceland with its leading hydrogen economy plans to be off oil in 2050. Sweden with its unique zeal for independence has a plan for 2020 to reduce oil use by 70%. In the U.S. the states of Hawaii and California are leading with their planned emission reductions.
Let’s go 100%! Maui can be the first oil-free economy in the world and benefit from the enormous publicity and worldwide attention that comes with it. We need to act now, before someone else has the same idea.
