Forehand/McDonald Press Release
"It will take at least three decades to completely leave behind fossil fuels. But we can do it,” quoted by Richard Heinberg in, “100% Renewable Energy: What We Can Do in 10 Years,” Published in “Yes!” Magazine.
Presidential and Vice Presidential Vision Party ticket, Forehand/McDonald, is responding to Heinberg’s statement with this:
Currently, fossil fuels provide 95% of fuel demand in America, according to a 2016 report by Friends of Science. Forehand/McDonald’s goal is not to replace fossil fuels entirely in the next 3 decades, but to replace the dominant reliance of fossil fuels with renewable energy.
Forehand/McDonald understands the reliance America currently has on fossil fuels. So, their vision is to slowly transition America into a cleaner piece of this worldwide puzzle. They believe it is entirely feasible to replace fossil fuels in many years to come, but for now, their goal is to make the first step. Because quite simply, the goal can never be reached if no one reaches out first.
This visionary ticket firmly concludes that setting up the future generations for success is the job of an excellent leader. Forehand/McDonald is a ticket that believes a successful leader is one who trains those around them to take their place and set them up for success. They intend to live up to this belief, by making the first big step towards a cleaner country.
Vision Party presidential candidate, Toby Forehand, puts it this way:
“When study after study continue to show how harmful fossil fuel dominance is, it would actually be selfish to continue relying on it. In regard to what the alternatives are, it’s true that it would be a long process but the evidence is on our side. We have 60 studies from around the world which all come to the same aggregated conclusion: There's more than enough solar, wind, and hydro potential to replace our fossil fuel reliance— 30 times more than business-as-usual forecasts for energy demand in 2050.”
While Vision Party vice presidential candidate, Madelyn McDonald, states:
“The time of reform is here and now. By implementing a firm foundation, I have full confidence we can replace the dominant reliance America has on fossil fuels in this generation. In order to see our future generations succeed with energy reform, we must set them up for success. Toby Forehand and I believe in long term solutions, because we don’t just want to see our generation succeed, but the ones to come.”
The goal of Forehand/McDonald is not to completely replace fossil fuels in the next 30 years, but to replace the dominant reliance it holds in America with renewable energy such as solar, wind, and hydro power.
