America Continues to Waste over 70% of the Energy it Consumes.
100's of millions of lights unnecessarily burn during the day and night, over heating and over cooling is the norm, over packaging, inadequate recycling, toxic landfills, horrendous road congestion, and our perverted obsession with road construction. Public and Private buildings, Schools, Churches, Homes, ... America's blatant energy waste and overuse is culturally pervasive, and abominable !
1- ONLY with a substantial and tangible economic reward/consequence will most Americans care to conserve.
Crude oil must be taxed at $200 per barrel and offset by making income tax begin at $60k.
Taxing energy is simple, fair, economically sound, and available TODAY.
2- The American auto industry must quickly transition to the 6.4 BILLION people reason$ to manufacture solar, wind, and other alternative energy producers. They already have the needed infrastructure. Every home and building in the world, could be using solar energy. We are fast running out of fossil fuels !
Humanity is racing toward extinction, via global warming, for our failure to stop our energy waste.
Taxing energy (in lieu of income taxes) is the ONLY incentive that will stop energy waste and cause renewable energy sources to be employed.

Hi Michael, I have updated the sight for CoolingEarth.org and it now is the US can be Carbon Neutral. America Continues to Waste over 70% of the Energy it generates. California sends electricty to Los Vages and Nevada sends electricty to California both costing about 50% of the generated power.
I don't see taxation being productive. It sounds more like a bribe to be good stewards. If we provide the railing that surrounds the problem, everything else will fall into place. For example, if we provided an interstate solution that made all the roads become a solar collection -- then we all have somewhere to plug into and use renewable energy. It changes the dynamic of our situation. It gives us self-reliance and spares our dignity and self-respect. Check out solar roadways.
This is the kind of leadership we need in Washington. Someone who will buck the trend. It is American inventors that have led the world in solutions that many of them are using. From cars that run on compressed air (Terry Miller from Joplin) to hydrogen as a serviceable energy resource (Roger Billings) to even the Wind Hunter which is proposed as a way of collecting hydrogen from our oceans.
I almost agree with every thing in your profile but we need a pollution surcharge and progressive national sales tax. But the problem is much bigger than what changing, even drasticly as you propose, for humans to thrive for many generations. Pleas read California Can be Carbon Neutral on CoolingEarth.org-it may be in need of updating but you will get the picture.
Hello Michael, Thanks for your comment. Your drastic tax proposal might work but before it worked, millions would be impoverished because the oil companies would not pay it. They would pass it on. There would be a revolution. Of course it would never go that far. Congress doesn't have the backbone to take any effective action. We are doomed. Might as well write the epitaph and pick out the funeral music.
