#BrettKimberlin’s Petition Clout


JTMP_KeystoneXL_petitionBrett Kimberlin’s “charity,” Justice Through Music Project has had a petition up for more than a month at Change dot org asking President Obama to stop construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.

He’s trying to get 100,000 signatures. As of 3 pm ET on 26 May, 2013, he has only 99,828 to go.

Given the current rate of progress, he should have his 100,000 signatures by the middle of 2061. Perhaps that explains why he didn’t post the petition at the White House site. According to the White House,

[t]o cross the first threshold and be searchable within WhiteHouse.gov, a petition must reach 150 signatures within 30 days.
To cross the second threshold and require a response, a petition must reach 100,000 signatures within 30 days.

He probably didn’t even make the first cut.

  1. What? Do you mean he only needs 172 signatures, which is the difference between 100,000 and 99,828, or something else?

    If this was a proofing error, please just delete my comment. I was mildly confused.
