Jerry Murray and Velga Drillia-Eizis presented over 900 postcard-size citizen petitions, in support of a resolution calling for the Oak Park mayor and village trustees to back "100 percent clean energy by 2035." The resolution, sponsored by Oak Park ClimateAction, will be considered by the Oak Park board for anticipated approval in April.

This town is filling up with nut cases.

The effort is useless. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just stated that if the world isn't off fossil fuels in 12 years the world will end. Completely. So why bother with post cards.

if this is such a crisis why 2035? How about 2028 or 2020 or Next week? The unintended consequences of this foolishness will land on our grand children long after we are dead and gone, so why worry? What problem are you trying to solve - do you even know? What will the cost be, in dollars and in lost employment - specifics please.It has been proposed that we are entering a 30 year global cooling cycle during which we will need every source of energy, known now or to be developed - just to survive. Here again we have well intentioned citizens mandating a solution to a problem that probably doesn't exist. Oak Park at it's finest!
