Profile Information

Are you interested in becoming an organizer in your area?
Yes
Tell us about your experience with alternative energy:
Past experience none. Within the past 2-3 months considerable. I never knew about the program with Algae until joining the Pickens Plan. I am learning more and more each day and hope to be able to incorporate it into the Florida Agricultural Museum as a teaching program.
What excites you about this campaign?
Saving The Planet and putting an end to Big Oil bringing this country to it's knees. The fact that an oil man himself is putting forth this effort with his own money impresses me and has earned my respect. For someone to finally stand up to our Government and say 'Enough is Enough" gets my attention and support any time.
What do you want to do to help?
Spread the word on my Social Networking sites, Blog Talk Radio and my Blog site. Also, any other way that will be possible within my means.

Former Welcome Wagon Volunteer - Pickens Plan Ambassador

There are 72 members in the city that I live in as of 9/19/08. I would like to see that doubled each week and get our local city, county and state politicians involved.

I am a "Farm-Hand" volunteer member (and as of 11/1/08, an assistant Tour Guide) of the Florida Agricultural Museum here in Flagler County. I hope to be able to somehow promote solar and wind power to be able to take the Museum off the grid. Thus saving money for other projects. I would also like to set up an experimental Algae Photo Bio Reactor on the grounds, perhaps in partnership with one of the Universities.
Member since 8/27/08.

THIS IS INCREDIBLE!! : HIGH DENSITY VERTICAL BIOREACTOR
http://cc.pubco.net/www.valcent.net/i/misc/Vertigro/index.html
Algae is the fastest growing organism/plant on the planet.
Depending upon the type of algae, 50% of it's body weight produces "lipids" or vegetable oil.
Corn will only produce about 18-20 gallons of oil per acre per year.
Palm will produce between 700-800 gallons of oil per acre per year.
Algae will produce over 20,000 gallons of oil per acre per year - when grown in an open pond system. Much, much more when done in the bioreactor.
Algae, like all plants, require carbon dioxide, water with nutrients and sunlight for growth. The bioreactor technology is ideal for locations adjacent to heavy producers of carbon dioxide such as coal fired power plants, refineries or manufacturing facilities, as the absorption of CO2 by the algae significantly reduces greenhouse gases.

Imagine What Could Get Accomplished

I watched with true amazement, the first time I saw T.Boone Picken's commercial on T.V. back in August. Here was someone finally coming forward with an Energy Plan that made a lot of sense. What struck me the most was, here was a billionaire oil man that's down to earth.

After listening to the Plan, I couldn't get the computer booted quick enough to join. Instead of whining about how I wanted someone to show me what to do or have somebody send me information, I dove right into checking out… Continue

A Call To Arms - The Pickens Plan

This is a post from my Blogsite GatorMotorNews posted 8/31/08.



This is not a call for the militia to grab their stockpile of guns, knives, swords, etc. This is a call to arms with knowledge. Armed with knowledge we can accomplish much. In this segment, I shall attempt to cover the basic rules of journalism, by covering the who, what, when, where, why and how to be armed.



WHO? Who is needed? Volunteers - You are needed.… Continue

Thanks Gator,
I found and signed the petition, and I guess I'm already on the friends list. Hard to imagine congress not wanting to develope or adopt some good policy that does so much to adjust future benefit by action today. Sound action today. We used to think about things in these terms at it made us strong through independence and leadership. Key is keeping all the $ we can working right here to benefit us. So little else is left to afford anything else. We've let way to much dependence on (once) cheap oil, and likewise cheap everything else, that we've kind of got ourselves into a lazy state of thinking, and figuring we'll just keep on and somehow The so called American way of life will allow us to just come up with more $. We better develope something in this country again. What better way to get this done and same time turn the outgoing $ into incoming investment. Win Win.

Harvest Time

Every seed takes time to germinate.
So too in the fields of the soul.
We must never give up and sow
because the results do not
immediate to our eyes.
Let us wait with patience.
In the right moment, the seeds
have driven in the soil of hearts,
there will produce mature fruit.
Understanding and sow Joy, Peace and
Courage, Forgiveness and Love.
Jesus bless you have a good nigh

REMARKS OF PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

WEEKLY ADDRESS

The White House
Saturday, February 7, 2009

Yesterday began with some devastating news with regard to our economic crisis. But I'm pleased to say it ended on a more positive note.

In the morning, we received yet another round of alarming employment figures – the worst in more than 30 years. Another 600,000 jobs were lost in January. We've now lost more than 3.6 million jobs since this recession began.

But by the evening, Democrats and Republicans came together in the Senate and responded appropriately to the urgency this moment demands.

In the midst of our greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression, the American people were hoping that Congress would begin to confront the great challenges we face. That was, after all, what last November's election was all about.

Legislation of such magnitude deserves the scrutiny that it's received over the last month, and it will receive more in the days to come. But we can't afford to make perfect the enemy of the absolutely necessary. The scale and scope of this plan is right. And the time for action is now.

Because if we don't move swiftly to put this plan in motion, our economic crisis could become a national catastrophe. Millions of Americans will lose their jobs, their homes, and their health care. Millions more will have to put their dreams on hold.

Let's be clear: We can't expect relief from the tired old theories that, in eight short years, doubled the national debt, threw our economy into a tailspin, and led us into this mess in the first place. We can't rely on a losing formula that offers only tax cuts as the answer to all our problems while ignoring our fundamental economic challenges – the crushing cost of health care or the inadequate state of so many schools; our addiction to foreign oil or our crumbling roads, bridges, and levees.

The American people know that our challenges are great. They don't expect Democratic solutions or Republican solutions – they expect American solutions.

From the beginning, this recovery plan has had at its core a simple idea: Let's put Americans to work doing the work America needs done. It will save or create more than 3 million jobs over the next two years, all across the country – 16,000 in Maine, nearly 80,000 in Indiana – almost all of them in the private sector, and all of them jobs that help us recover today, and prosper tomorrow.

Jobs that upgrade classrooms and laboratories in 10,000 schools nationwide – at least 485 in Florida alone – and train an army of teachers in math and science.

Jobs that modernize our health care system, not only saving us billions of dollars, but countless lives.

Jobs that construct a smart electric grid, connect every corner of the country to the information superhighway, double our capacity to generate renewable energy, and grow the economy of tomorrow.

Jobs that rebuild our crumbling roads, bridges and levees and dams, so that the tragedies of New Orleans and Minneapolis never happen again.

It includes immediate tax relief for our struggling middle class in places like Ohio, where 4.5 million workers will receive a tax cut of up to $1,000. It protects health insurance and provides unemployment insurance for those who've lost their jobs. And it helps our states and communities avoid painful tax hikes or layoffs for our teachers, nurses, and first responders.

That's what is at stake with this plan: putting Americans back to work, creating transformative economic change, and making a down payment on the American Dream that serves our children and our children's children for generations to come.

Americans across this country are struggling, and they are watching to see if we're equal to the task before us. Let's show them that we are. And let's do whatever it takes to keep the promise of America alive in our time.

Thank you.

Hey Gator,

Wouldn't you know it, I've sent friend requests to a 100 people and the Pickens Plan limits us from requesting any more, therefor I am unable to send you one. I suppose that makes sense to someone, but it sure stiefels making contacts here. Do you know a way around this fubar?
