Tell us about your experience with alternative energy:
In 1976, Shell Oil Company was drilling in White Horse Canyon, Utah. The "Doghouse" found one of the largest deposits of gas. The Vice President of Shell Oil Company took the seismic readings and wrote 2000 on the front of the paper, in front of the Driller. Which means that they "Capped" ( word use to stop or suspend drilling for future use but keep the knowledge to yourself.) that seismic readings and will not start to drill until 2000.
Don't know if they ever started to drill in 2000 for the VP could have dropped over dead with the paper in his desk. But worked in the oil field as a Drill Helper and we found huge deposits of oil & gas in Wyoming, Montana & Dakotas that were "Capped" in 1980 for 20, 40 & 60 years.
The same thing happened in Texas for there are huge pockets of gas and oil that were also "Capped.".
Four years laters, "We do not want to use our own resources" as I was told by another VP of a Major Oil Co.." Government wants to use up other countries oil before ours." Which did not make sense to me at the time and it sure does not today either.
There has been technology around for 50 years that could convert or take us off fossil fuel but they are buried to increas the profits of oil companies. They have the highest price lawyers to manipulate the public--other than weapon companies who have the highest lawyers.
Then go to wind for its all over the US. The suns shines in most states at least 276 days a year.
Now, think outside of the box and ask people who have land large enough to put a wind mill on it if they would like a wind mill in their yard. Now for the benefit of this question. Just provide that home with free energy as payment for the land lease. Use their land and it’s a win win for everyone. They get free energy and the wind energy company who provides the wind machine gets the rest.
Heard yesterday a person I know is making solar panels out of pop cans and installing the equipment to convert his home for less than $300.00. He goggled!!!
For 10 years, cut ten cords of wood to heat a 3 bedroom home and it sucked!. Sharping the chain saw blades all the time. Mixing the gas & Oil just right and then making sure no logs fell on you or you accidently cut your arm off. Then found out that all the insurance companies will raise your home owners rates if you have a wood stove that is not UL listed or installed professionally.
So to lower my home policy-went to electric heating and my costs tripled.
What keeps the people who have High Moral class in middle class is that they carry the weight of the world on their shoulders, pay all the taxes and no-one listens to them until now. T. Pickens blows me away due to my personal experiences with the same type of people.
Our small Planet in a large Universe has limited supplies!. Not everything is reusable or renewable!
So here's a thought.. will the future use our bodies as fuel?
What excites you about this campaign?
That an oil man is thinking like the middle class and blue collar workers. Who bust thier fannies trying to work and getting no where paying higher taxes and higher gas. I personally do not like paying an oilman and making him rich while I am the one working to fill his pockets. This is the first oil man I have ever seen or heard that thinks outside of the "Box" and is actually trying to improve the situation compared to the other oil man who just line thier pockets and stay with the "Norm"
"The more money you make- the more money you want" was quoted to me by an Owner of a Major Oil Corp and I saw it happen!
But this man pays for a TV commercial that costs alot and proposes a fix that is not only short term but long term. Imagine looking up at the nights sky and seeing the brighest stars staring back at you and no pollution blocking your view. There a new world out there go for it!
What do you want to do to help?
Educate people with my knowledge for have been working since I was 14 years old in a Man's world.

10% of $300,000 means $30,000 for me every year. My electric bill is less than $2500 a year. I can convert my own house for a lot less then that. Besides, I am old, and I do not worry about what is going to happen to me when I am 156 years old. Give me the money now. I have a lot of things that I want to do before they put me in the ground. I guess we will have to agree to disagree on this issue. Either way it would work out well.
Come on now Ike*;
A 1.5 mw turbine in a 9 mps wind generates about $300,000. per year in electricity. Are you really saying that the electric company should get all of that money to keep up a 20%return on investment for themselves while the landowner gets chicken feed? As a prarrie populist I think that is simply another way of the rich investers getting richer from the sweat of the ranchers/farmers that own the land and are barely getting by right now. Can we settle on the landowner getting at least 10%?
Also, as a land owner, if I provide a good place to put up windmills that profit the company millions I should get more than free electricity. Having worked in the oil 'bidness" you should know that the landowners share is 1/8th.
Sometimes, I really despise this site. For when you go to check something else like spelling or email and click out. Then all what you wrote is lost. Which in turn, produces an effect I call "M y Metaphors Rant” as you try to remember what you wrote the first time. And the effect from that is that you then get to rewrite it again...if you can remember it. Cause & Effect
So, here I go again................
Wow, am so surprised to know that someone knows where Opportunity is located and then this will blow your mind once you get to know me... My address was #1 in Oppor. Which is so ironic with my past & personality.
May I ask a question? What’s your occupation? If its too personal don't say.
Was in Missoula yesterday and just hated the traffic which is now starting in Kalispell. Am so amazed that when I visited this area in the 70's I thought it was so backward and now looking at it. Can't even afford to buy your own land or a house with land if a want to live around here.
Have yet to meet the current Governor who is surprise everyone and he kinda reminds me of Marc Raciot who I know personally . GAWD! I have such stories about him, my artwork, and how he knows of me. Driving to Helena via the Lincoln route is so colorful and majestic.
We Cut our driving from almost 40,000 a year to 24,000. Went through 4 cars, 3 of which, we were still paying on for years with the company we worked for as they made you use your own car.
Am so familiar with Corporation politics, rules and engagements . Sometimes old wives tales are true such as money is the root of all evil. The more money you make, the more you want, and then the more you try to hide to keep. There are loopholes in everything according to a 350 lb drunk CPA that taught me corporate booking and laws in a two week period.
Would dearly love to see a space ship land on the white house lawn and see what happens.
Also am a caulking nut, sealing junkie and for a female who gets tools like robo grips for Christmas. Firmly believe that "Preventative Maintenance" saves cars & expense. Hell, the dodge intrepid still has all its original equipment but the tranny, and its only been replaced once. That car has just over 250,0000 miles on it. You can pull the dip stick out and still the oil comes out of the engine clear as a bell. Although,. some of my seals are starting to leaks so rubber does not last longer it seals. It’ ll burn forever.
Auto places dislike me for I ask for Zerts on my U joints and they ask why.....They don;t expect a “girl” to know anything about auto parts. They live in the land of “DA.” as I call it.
If you care to respond in a different format there is another email I respond to that does not erase itself (Montanasbestkept@centrutytel.net)
My business name is Montana's Best Kept Secrets. So if you ever hear of that name its me.
I love the Opportunity area - but you're right, No one outside of MT would have any idea what you're talking about. Big Fork is changing and even Helena is starting to a little. I don;t miss the crowds and traffic that Missoula had. Helena is a bit slower speed.
I'm in Helena. I moved from Missoula a little over three years ago. After 15 years on the west side of the divide, I was unprepared for the raw amount of sun we get on the east side. I was really shocked to see my floor sun-faded after less than two years. The patch that faded doesn't get summer sun - so it was the winter sun that did it. Where are you in this great state?
If your the Standard then you might like to know what I know too. Another building item that will help with the current energy problem is proper insulation.
There is an old idea-new product that is being brought to this area of the Pacific Northwest. Styrofoam panels are put together to make residential or commercial walls and then cement is pour inside to stablize the styrofoam. The the outside styrofoam is painted or sidding is installed. Its as good as living in a cave.
Proper and better insulation products and practices need to be standardized in the construction occupation like wiring was standardized for Electricians to make life easier for everyone.
680 sq. feet is just 13 feet by 52.3 feet
1380 2q feet is just a little over 81 feet by 17 feet
Are smaller families expected in these subdivisions or the elderly trying to retire to a warmer place?
If your using statistics what are the justifications and site the sources?
I am the artist that drew these wolves that represent me and I am as careful as they are.
ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY INDUSTRIES Inc.
“We are the Standard for all Building Structures of the Future”
Why all the media Hype over Alternative Renewable Energy?
The hoopla and the hype about the Alternative Energy Industry are due to several factors that can be summed up very simply.
Obviously the new cost of the old standard; OIL.
We as Americans never do anything until made to. IE: Voting.
Because of the Dynamic shift from a production society, post WWII in the US to a service or market Economy by the end of the 90’s.
Was one of a cause and effect, if you will…?
The 90’s was the internet boom….
The 2000 to 2006 the Real Estate boom….
Now we have Real Recession and Inflation, the economy going two different directions at the same time…Stagflation.
So it is quite evident the next boom to get America back on tract is the
Alternative Energy boom.
It’s what makes America Great.
It is these bubbles, or as Greenspan well stated it the “Frothiness” that becomes
THE AMERICAN ALTERNATIVE RENEWABLE SUSTAINABLE ECONOMY.
We will rebound and this Alternative Energy Industry will make it so.
God Bless America…….
I have an agenda.....
My life's goal is to have all residential property co-generating electricity in North America by 2025. Little know fact it's only 25% of entire North American Grid Consumption.
This is attainable we have the technology and the man-power.....
We must start now!!!!
Time for talk is over.....
I have introduced the Boldest Solar/Housing Initiative ever put forth...
Entire subdivisions of low-cost Modulars with little to no electric bill that retail from $79,900 to $149,900 680sq 2/1 to 1380sq 3/2
Meets the need for low-cost housing and helps over Stressed Grid during PEAK_USAGE hrs as entire subdivisions come on-line becoming virtual mini-generating stations.
As well as helps the environment…
It is the short term solution to a long term problem.......
Now that I have come home to south Georgia....
it is time to enlist All the help with this I can get.
I need more R & D with my new patent Idea an will be asking for Ga Tech's help.....with the SOLAR POWERED RECIRCULATOR GENERATOR which will drive the cost of production down by almost 60%
and will also be going back to Washington DC in this election year to demand more from our "so called elected or soon-to-be-elected officials".
I am in negotiations with Roger Little of Spire Solar in Mass to build a 100mw manufacturing plant in Liberty County Ga.
My plan is simple mix Roger's little assembly line with RapidModular.com's walling panels to produce under one roof the
structures of the future.

He was there in DC in '98 when President Clinton signed the Million Roofs Initiative.
In 1999 he formed a Georgia corporation Alternative Resource Electric Corporation Inc just in time for what was sure to be Al Gore as President to then start implementing the Energy initiative's the Clinton Administration had put forth.
Well we all know what happened….
So for the last 7yrs Mr. Polk became a Real Estate guru mentoring others waiting for the end of the present Administration.

Solarbuzz llc. Says “revenue for the global solar technology industry reached $10.6 billion in 2006, while capital investment through solar photovoltaic-technology business hit $2.8 billion”, the annual World Solar Photovoltaic Industry Report. In addition, the industry raised more than $4 billion in equity and debt financing, up from $1.8 billion a year earlier. Solarbuzz also predicts the industry could expect revenue to reach between $18.6 billion and $31.5 billion by 2011.
In addition, the company is in best effort negotiations with Washington, D.C.-based law firm Chadbourne & Parke LLP to study the feasibility of securing state and federal incentives on a project-by-project basis.
The solar industry is booming, boasting growth of more than 40 percent each year and some $30 billion in sales last year, according to Photon International
Clean energy investment soars
July 3, 2008 11:21 am EDT Filed in Investing
Investment in sustainable energy worldwide is posting big growth, with $148.4 billion going to the sector in 2007, according to a new United Nations report.
That was an increase of 60 percent over the previous year, and the dollars climb when all financial transactions including acquisitions are included. That number is $204.9 billion.
The majority of the money going to sustainable energy came in the form of investments geared at adding capacity for renewable energy — a 67 percent surge to $84.5 billion last year. Public market investment in sustainable energy more than doubled, to $23.4 billion from $10.5 billion in 2006. Early stage venture investments grew 112 percent to $2 billion.
The primary funding source will be a Private Placement Memorandum with Subscription Agreement.
Stock will be sold in units
One unit is = to 2000 shares
The cost is $25US per share
So the unit cost is $50kUS
This will be in the form of $25kUS interest only cash loan at 6% simple interest
With a promissory note of $1000US per month for 25 months. Certificate will be issued immediately and transferred at 25th month. This will coincide with Direct Public Offering.
The 6% interest is paid semi-annually to stockholders.
The 25kUS cash will stay in escrow until the day we go public then there will be the pay-out back to stockholders.
The $1000US per month will be used for operating capitol.
The Capitol Expenditures to build out manufacturing Plants, PV and Modular will come from DOE State and Locale Municipalities Grants and initiatives the bulk will be Bridge Loans/holding preferred stock with warrants.
