Green Day Wants America to 'Move Beyond Oil'

Published: 2006-11-27
Green Day is calling on America to go green.

The American punk rockers have teamed up with the Natural Resources Defense Center in a campaign to reduce their home country's dependence on oil.

The Move America Beyond Oil campaign calls on people to visit the online initiative and send messages to political leaders petitioning change for the environment. Some of these changes include improving fuel efficiency standards for transportation and limiting global warming pollution.

"This campaign is about channeling the power of millions into something positive and powerful. People are sick of our oil addiction and feel like nobody is doing anything about it," said frontman Billie Joe Armstrong in a statement. "The solutions are there, the support is there, but the leadership is not. Our message is that it's okay, and very rebellious, to take on that responsibility."
