Are you interested in becoming an organizer in your area?
Maybe--But Not Sure What to Organize
Tell us about your experience with alternative energy:
I've been telling everyone and their brother about it and am awaiting a chance to buy a HONDA CIVIX GX or even a used fleet vehicle.
What excites you about this campaign?
Everything. Especially the immediacy and urgency about using Natural Gas(NG).
1) Reduces Dependency on our enemies
2) Cleaner Environment
3) Keeps the money in the US
4) Its cheaper for the consumer, helping families!!!
5) I want to buy an old Indian motorcycle with the $$ I save by buying NG(Natural Gas)!!!
What do you want to do to help?
you tell me

Please – this is not a sales pitch, but an opportunity to get involved in the greening of America. So if you have friends or relatives in the Anaheim area, please take the time to let them know of this message.
Not to knock Mr. Picken's vision, or anything, but I don't particularly think it focuses too well on one of the reasons we got here in the first place. Big corporate machinery is a requirement, and has some definite advantages, but it doesn't allow the small business person to develop, explore, improve (this -very- required part of our existence) ,and profit, if regulations won't even let them on the playing field.
If free trade for CLEAN energy, were available ($.05/KWH @ 20 HP = $1,500/month), then I suspect -as one example- that a lot of farmers would put up multiple 5 HP wind generation systems on freeway light sized poles (that would be able to be lowered to the ground for servicing) as opposed to the 10 story "Clipper Ships" that require much more time and delay to install in limited locations, for the benefit (monetarily) of a very few people.
Another example: this same mentality of "top down" control built up a whole lot of "Mc Mansions" that are now of inflated value .They could be very valuable assets, with just a couple of rooms' conversions. Let me explain; The LP gas utility increases production of thawing methane resources to capture the gas before it can escape to the atmosphere. It sells the gas to the home owner who can turn the gas into heat and electricity for the home, (plus 2 HP constant extra), using a auto engine equipped with an extra catalytic converter that turns the carbon dioxide into calcium carbonate (this is effective for this range of engine conversion size to 40(?) HP constant). for a check from the utility company of $150 each month (about the cost of the LP gas bill, plus that much more for the pocket). -No changes required to utility infrastructure, and the utility doesn't have to build, man, or maintain the energy generation source; they become a _more profitable_ broker.-
If larger generation capacity is wanted, (20 HP for $1,500 return), a larger monthly connection fee is billed the location, for the upgrade in the wire, equipment, and transformer size, and the LP gas bill would be about $750, with a balance of $700 for profit each month. Any windmills or solar would result in reducing the LP gas bill, making small farms more secure in growing food/energy crops instead of some of the crap they now -have to- sell.
Once that is done, 20 HP energy generation (that results in $1,500 / month in return) will allow banks to be comfortable in lending the money for the solar-home / car-convertors (whatever) that do this. With a car payment of $300, and a mortgage payment of $800 (possibly distributed automatically), that still leaves $300 for taxes, and insurance, and food. All this without being any burden on the State.The figures are ballpark, but I would expect the banks to adjust the levels to provide a better level of food / personal income for the kind of return this represents.
More than that; correct type of homes built / upgraded get more jobs, in the local area. Energy costs for manufacturing and transportation go down -and remain low-. Labor benefits improve for workers, because they don't need a job , absolutely, right away, and small business will have more money to move around.
Stable, objective based economics, free home, security, transportation, food, and insurance,... and all a person has to do is sign a paper (and maybe get a vasectomy in the dangerously over populated parts of the world).
Hi Kurt, Not sure how you sent me an email but 'ts ok. You obviously are concerned about the bailout and want to talk with your congressman. I just spent 30+ minutes trying to find something for you on the failed measure to no avail but if you haven't tried www.house.gov or http://thomas.loc.gov/bss/d110query.html you may be able to find what I could not. Good luck.
Glad to have you here. Thank you for your offer of meaningful support for this historical effort! Need folks to help push pledges, and Pickens U. Look forward to hearing from you. 400,000 is not 1 million! Can you get some pledges signed?
Thx for the link. The bailout of FNMA and Freddie will lead to a major recession whether or not the foreign interests call in their markers. The national debt will balloon to 15 trillion dollars. Adding a few more trillion for oil and gas companies just makes it worse.
Hi Kurt, Thanks for the info. Been wanting to find a way to get a Natural Gas fueling station here in Southeast Missouri. In order for us to get a CNG, we have to have the fuel available. There isn't any in this area, yet. There are some in St. Louis. We are about 2 1/2 hours south. The town I live in is right off of Interstate 55. It would seem to me, a great place to have a CNG fueling station right here. People travel right through here on there way to and from Memphis and I am sure all other places. Also, 1 mile up the road is Rt 60 which turns into Interstate 57N going to Chicago. Can you imagine the significance of having a station here?
