Tell NADA to retract its lawsuit and support the Obama administration's new fuel economy standards.


A new fuel economy law enacted by the Obama administration addresses America's growing problems with global warming and dependency on oil. However, the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) is launching a counter-suit that, if successful, could obstruct the new fuel standards and consequently heighten America's energy crisis.

The vitality of our planet depends on associations with authority like NADA to be responsible and make healthy choices for the environment. Send a letter to NADA's chairman, Edward C. Tonkin, asking him to act for the good of the earth and reconsider NADA's lawsuit.

The Petition:

Dear Edward C. Tonkin:

As a concerned environmental advocate, I am quite appalled at NADA's decision to launch a suit against the Obama administration's recent decision on fuel economy standards. The administration's decision was made based on undisputable evidence that Earth's climate is warming and the idea that America needs to become less dependent on foreign oil.

One of the most compelling ways of limiting our dependence on oil and decreasing our carbon footprint is through improving automobile technology as well as requiring manufacturers to meet certain vehicle emission standards. In fact, automobile emissions not only contribute to climate change, but are also extremely carcinogenic. The new standards would go far in addressing problems caused by auto emissions both on a wide scope and also at the human level.

However NADA continues its attempts to block this legislation. I am writing to ask that you think responsibly for the welfare of our future. Please reconsider your opposition to the new standards and set the example for the rest of the world in the name of a cleaner planet.

Thank you for your time.
