Are you interested in becoming an organizer in your area?
Tell us about your experience with alternative energy:
Installed a 6Kw Photovoltaic Net Metering System along with a full Thermal water heatiing system to heat the pool.
What excites you about this campaign?
This country needs to make our own future without waiting on the Governments to decide how best to move forward on alternative energy production. The American marketplace will select how our Nation builds the infrastructure and accomodates this new technology

Glad you asked! Boone has just this week rolled out a Congressional Push for supporters. Because Obama has said that he wants to be 100% off Middle Eastern oil in 10 years, Boone wants to make our group as big as we can in every district in the country. He wants ALL of Congress to understand that the American people are squarley behind this initiative.
Grass roots is the only way for a true revolution. Can you help by gathering some signatures in your area fast? Check in with your area organizer to see who the leader is in your district.
There are some things that involve true science, that is translated into useful technology, and others of trivial value. The present method of using propellers is inefficient. A 10 foot by 10foot square opening in a funnel going to a 2 inch by 6 inch opening can increase a 7 miles per hour wind to 70 miles per hour on the small end. If you put that small end in front of a turbine, the output will be at least five times what a similar sized propeller would provide. Larger funnels would power the existing steam turbines without need of steam energy and cool water to cool the turbines. This will be the future of wind energy, whether I live to see it or not. For example, the hang gliders you see people use in La Jolla is an invention 290 years old. Emmanuel Swedenborg invented and tested it in 1718. We don't have the luxury of waiting a few hundred years to build this type of design. If I can't get a fair hearing here I'll just write a paper and distribute it to people who are more amenable to new ways of thinking. Most of the major innovations in the world were made by individuals. It would be nice to find someone with money, resources, and an open mind to pursue this idea. Solar Energy and land-based wind energy turbines will provide ALL of the power needed now and forever. I hope it doesn't take two hundred years.
Since you answered "yes" to interested in becoming an organizer, there are several things I can recommend. Join the following Groups:
Organizers & Leaders
OnLine Action Army
Guides & Materials for New Members
On the upper right corner of Your Page, click on "States" to visit the Push Pickens Community for your state.
Contact and "Friend" Mary Anne Carter, the New Energy Army Regional Leader for California. Let her know that you are interested in becoming an organizer.
Welcome and THANK YOU for joining Pickens Plan. Here is how you can help.
EMAIL A LETTER TO YOUR REPRESENTATIVES BY USING OUR EASY RED "CONTACT CONGRESS" BUTTON -This is urgent, because the Energy Bill in Congress is in danger of not passing! With little effort, we have the ability here for you to send a letter to our Representatives in Washington and Governor, too. Go to THE PLEDGE (at the very top of this page on the blue header) On the top of the pledge page there are three rectangular buttons- two blue ones and ONE RED BUTTON, that reads "CONTACT CONGRESS" . Fill in the short, standard form. Done!
YOU CAN ALSO HELP BY BRINGING 5 FOLKS TO JOIN the site today, so that we can build a voice big enough that Congress will finally have to listen to us, instead of the lobbyists and special interests, who are trying to derail this historic effort.
YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE PLEDGE on the main page. Print out 10 or more of them, get them signed and fax them back to Boone ASAP. This is how we build our numbers fast! Be a leader, be a part of the "100 CLUB", by faxing in 100 signed pledges. Let me know when you are done and I will add you to the list.
THERE IS NO TIME TO DELAY
…to wait and see…or to see if someone else will step up to the plate. It is time for US to roll up our sleeves and go to work. Right now momentum is working in our favor, but if gas prices retreat, the public will forget the pain, and our moment may be lost.
FOR MORE INFORMATION
Check out Pickens "August Call to Action"- for a course of action! Here is an informative video "Topeka, Kansas Town Hall Meeting": http://www.pickensplan.com/news/2008/08/04/video-of-the-topeka-town...
PERSONAL ACTION OPTIONSWe need to do more than “preach to the choir”. Sharing ideas with each other is encouraging but that will not 1) increase our membership nor 2) influence public policy. If you know someone in the press or someone who blogs - get them to cover this. Ask those in the public eye to support this plan.
A GROUP FOR EVERYONE. Join the Guides and Materials for New Members Group. Lot's of good information there.
Check out the many groups for Solar, CNG, your area, etc. Connect, learn and share. We grow stronger with your input. If you don't see a group that speaks to your interest, then start a group of your own.
PLEASE FRIEND ME so we can keep in touch.
Thanks again for joining this historical effort. WE CAN DO THIS .
