Profile Information

Are you interested in becoming an organizer in your area?
Tell us about your experience with alternative energy:
I grew up in a small town and our fuel was coal and wood. I like wood because it is renewable but understand there is not enough. I have had no other experience but have been interested in it and the types.
What excites you about this campaign?
Cutting down on oil from other countries and getting the country to realize there are better ways to heat and light up our homes.
My brother, sister and cousin still live there in the town we grew up in. They have bought land around the family farm (which is about 800 acres) They want to keep as much of the small town as pristine as it can be.
What do you want to do to help?
I want people to know there is something they can do to cut down on oil. That is not a renewable source and will run out.

Is Obama a citizen? Was he born in the United States. Was his mother of age?

I wonder what the companies here will do with their bailout money since there are no or few requirements.


Good word for what is happening. HA People use bail to get out of jail until their trial comes up or they are required to appear in court. Here there will be no trial or hearing to see how they used the money but there should be. Why don't they require companies' accounting departments to give them information showing HOW much is needed, WHY it is needed and WHAT it will… Continue

Thought you might be interested in the Idaho National Laboratory facebook site. We do a lot of energy research including wind, nuclear, solar, natural gas, etc. http://www.facebook.com/idahonationallaboratory

Haven't been able to get a response from the pickens team on an idea. Maybe you have some pull some where. Assuming the new wind farm is on hold, why not setup a fund to add a windmill to an existing wind farm ? I would contribute to it. My original reason for joining was to increase the use of wind energy !

Jim thank you so much for the quick come back, and for your posting Your Great Pics. The serenity they evoke will be a big help for good people working so tirelessly to preserve it. I want this site to be a place where people can inspire each other, and be inspired themselves to continue in the most great law of LOVE For God and their fellow human being. I need this site to be free of political-economical- or social issues, so Spiritual Rest and Re-couperation may be better served.Thanks Jim, your friend Leland.

Hi Jim; I love your nature pics., can I put them on the new PP group "Love Revolution 2" site? They portray so well what we here at PP Army are trying to accomplish, a more sustainable natural future. PS Thank you for friending me, I look forward to our future communications. I have another site that would be blessed by your photos: [Love Revolution 2.ning.com] if you wouldn't mind. Your new PP friend, Leland

It's good to see some old friends back at Energy Party Group, had me scared there for a few days. Yes Jim once again you said it right, time and how we use it as a valuable commodity, is key to our positive advancement on every level of endeavor. Thank you for the reminder,your fan and friend William Leland Luster/Las Vegas,Nev.PS: Here's a song I wrote with a similar theme, I hope you enjoy it. Leland #1.mp3

Hi Jim, If you agree with this plan please consider passing to other people in your district as it will be a great tool to get funding for PickensPlan projects. This is a way to help and give tools to all of us for getting more RE projects started. I have been pushing for the sell of US Treasury "Energy Independence Savings Bonds". Savings bonds are normally purchased in $25 increments. This gives a way for just about any American to tighten their belts just a bit by skipping a meal at McDonalds or Pizza Hut and buying a RE savings bond to support a project. I need help pushing this project, I've faxed and emailed many in Congress/Senate already. My email is ke6cvh@yahoo.com. Here is a copy of a fax sent to Nancy Pelosi yesterday:

Honorable Speaker of the House Congresswoman Pelosi,

I am an Electronic Technician Chief in the US Navy with 27 years service stationed overseas. I’m outlying an idea to assist and work with current plans for achieving energy independence. I urge you, as speaker of the house and the driving force to form the select committee on energy independence and global warming, consider for discussion and introduction into the house US Treasury Savings Bonds for Energy Independance.
In WWII America sold war bonds supporting the war effort. When young, my mother told me her primary school raised enough money through bonds to build a tank to support troops. I am impressed with the patriotism and purpose of our greatest generation that accomplished so much.

Selling energy bonds for RE (Renewable Energy) development would lower foreign oil imports and assist with the complex problem of funding. Bonds sold as “Energy S” could support new solar trough plants, “Energy W” to support wind farms, Energy “H” to support hydroelectric plants, Energy “T” to support RE transportation such as electric bullet train routes powered by RE, Energy "C" COOPS for small communities only needing a small quantity of turbines, and Energy “I” for needed infrastructure high voltage power lines to the RE site. Bonds will have the project name and include an artist’s perspective of the project and an American flag. President Obama had great success with the internet during his campaign. In a similar manner, using the internet, energy bonds could have a website listing current projects and an “electronic checkout” could purchase a bond $25 or higher. Simpler methods of payment such as “PAYPAL” and credit cards would be available and after an electronic purchase is complete a color print out of the bond is available with a follow up of the bond in the mail. The website would limit quantity of projects for each category until funding is complete. After a project becomes funded, a new project will be available. A tab on the site will show history and status of previous projects. Purchasers may take great pride in “collecting” and displaying bonds of various RE projects and participating at different levels of financial support. Solar trough plants in the multi-hundred MW size capacity with molten salt energy storage in California, Arizona, and West Texas can provide a major portion of electric needs. North Dakota has potential to support 1/3 of our nations electric needs in it’s class 4 wind zone areas. There are plenty of suitable proposed wind turbine farms now around the nation to significantly increase our RE if funded. Mid sized hydro-electric has not been used in America to it’s full potential. Following the example of our neighbor, Canada, it would provide a significant increase in percentage of electric production. Developing all three we could provide the majority of our electric and heating needs through renewable energy in a "New New Deal" fashion allowing natural gas for transportation as T. Boone Pickens is working for. Bullet train routes have proven a viable alternative to commercial domestic air service and when powered by electricity provided by RE suppliers America would be in the forefront of world technology. Example, I heard of discussion for a commuter train from Denver to Colorado Springs. Such a route built as a renewable energy project with charter requirement legally requiring to only purchase electricity from available renewable energy sources would be a model example. There are many train routes, city bus systems, and government vehicles that can be converted to run from alternative energy sources and fuels. Jobs created would bolster the economy, lower trade deficit, and strengthen national security. I would take great pride in print outs of bonds with graphics of each project I supported and many other Americans would also. The energy bonds could have tax breaks. BLM lands may be a viable place to start for some projects.

I contacted the US treasury department and was told that the marketing department for savings bonds closed several years ago. I was told there would be problems because savings bonds are at the federal level while the projects will be at the state and local level. I disagree and believe that these can easily be figured out in the way of grants to the state and local level using money from the bonds for those specific projects. I was told to check out auctions on the www.treasurydirect.gov website and found them to not apply to citizens wanting to buy savings bonds to support a cause such as energy independance. I was told by the treasury department to look into CREB (Clean Renewable Energy Bonds). I found CREB to be large scale funding that a citizen would not be able to participate in as a US Treasury Energy Independance Bond would provide. If given the tools to participate directly, the power of the citizens of the United States to help achieve energy independance could not be denied. Americans mean well and the Energy Independance Savings bond program will give citizens the power at their level to make it happen. If marketed through a web page, commercials, and to federal employees the word would get out and participation would spread like wildfire.

Mr. Paul Gipe, a resident of Bakersfield CA, an author of several books about wind energy, and recipient of multiple awards as a pioneer in the industry since the 1970's has put a letter I wrote to Senator Dorgan on this subject as well as an older letter I wrote on wind COOP in JAN07.

Hi Jim, I'm trying to start fairly slowly but put in a comment about an inperson meeting at my sparsely furnished apartment in Milford. I'm having a little trouble navigating the site with all the comments so separated. It seems hard to see what has been done and what should be next in MA-02. Any ideas from out there at the edge of central MA? Thanks,Lee

Mr Dennis suggested joining all the states groups, a greater base and clearer idea about what the group is working on everywhere! yes, join, and just run around the PP site, i am amazed at not only the same mind set, but the information EVERYWHERE!!!! it's so exciting! let me know if i can help or point.

Jim, I will be sure to share whatever information we can obtain collectively. Here in texas, we are working on recruits for the PP and the Energy Party. That's where we will be heard. I am going to begin research regarding codes and regulations for the state of texas, and hopefully, we will be able to collectively get the the laws changed that need to be changed for us individually to become energy self-sufficient. Regardless of what the outcome is in Washington regarding the Pickens Plan, we need to push our representatives relax regulations etc, so that wind, solar, or whatever renewable and green energy source an individual wants to use, they would be able to make that choice. You share your ideas and what your state is doing too, i love this networking with a group of "action minded" people!
thanks and best of luck

Jim, you left a message on my profile regarding the energy party for Massachusetts. I apologize, but I don't really understand what it is.
