Well the election is over and we will be spared from constant TV ads.
Whether the person/party is in office that you wished - at this point is all about ending our political gridlock and let's get moving to solve huge problems!
We all agree- The problems that face us are, Enormous, on a variety of fronts.
We need to demand that our politicians COME TOGETHER!
We need to move forward with our energy issues.
Pres Obama voiced that he will get us moving with our energy goals.
We cannot stress enough that You all need to send e-messages, tweets/facebook, whatever avenue; to your congress/house politicians that we are thru bickering and it is NOW time to address the future of AMERICA.
But the most important thing is ACTING on solutions!
We need to use the utmost caution with regards to Our environment and Our quality of life.
A bit of thoughtful information.
We know anything passing through the political process is slow.
In a small moment of compasion for the process, please look at this article as some of the thought concerns that are holding up the action.

Boone has been up close and personal with oil and gas operations for way many years.
Boone tells us the Energy plan is frontline conversation and will happen.
He feels we can (using a host of avenues) achieve energy independence.
WE are tired of sending our hard earned money to countries that are unstable and are doing us harm.
Boone Pickens appeared on CNBC and suggested that oil prices - which have fallen quickly over the past several weeks - would fall another $5 per barrel but that natural gas would go to $4 per million cubic feet (Mcf) from its current level of just below $3/Mcf.
NG sets the field in regards to pricing, greatly affecting the cost/return viability of wind, solar and battery.
As Boone has pointed out again and again, we’ve got the world’s least expensive natural gas right here in America.
Yet we’re not doing enough with it.
Instead of using Natural Gas to power our big rigs and reduce our dangerous dependence on OPEC oil, "the powers that" be are talking about exporting it overseas so other countries can benefit from America’s abundance. ???????
Like oil, from our soil:
Which is now the # 1 export in America.
Nowhere is this more evident than in; Anacortes, WA, where in the last couple weeks (Oct 2012) three tankers of oil left the Shell and Tesoro refineries bound for China, Mexico, and Japan.
This as we all know equates to Free trade and making a dollar. OUR ECONOMY/investors
Gasoline in Japan cost 158.3 Yen per Liter / $7.52 per gallon.
It is higher in China than it is in California.
In Iran; gas is less than $1 a gallon.
The Iranian government began promoting natural gas about a decade ago, and not just in response to American-led sanctions.
A big initial reason was the increasingly thick yellow blankets of smog that often engulf greater Tehran and its 12 million inhabitants.
PLEASE READ that again.
I believe some of us have experienced that in our own towns.
The result from the Iranian goverments effort, they now have 2.9 million natural gas vehicles on the road.
The U.S.? Just 120 thousand.
And natural gas is better for the environment. And WOW, It burns cleaner, affecting both sides of the continent.
Windmills, Boone has not abandoned them, they as you read are showing up.
The electric grid has a host of challenges.
In the middle section of (home page) Please click (latest news).
This will take you to more facts/thoughts to help.
Battery power like solar are making advances by leaps and bounds and will help make the next big hit on our oil demand.
Solar possibilities - Please read the first sentence in description.
Look at this site for solar projects in progress and info on how you can have your own.
CNG conversions In Oklahoma growing strong.
Please help pass the word (we cannot afford to keep our head in the sand).
We need to get together and pass energy bills and incentives that will create and keep ON OUR SOIL jobs and revenue.
The largest single switch to NG that would have the biggest impact on our oil consumption is our 8 million heavy 18 wheeler rigs.
These rigs burn Diesel fuel (a less processed product of oil) which creates more polution.
These rigs log in thousands of miles per month.

It is hard to imagine how we are going to become energy independent:
When we are exporting so much of our domestic supplies.
Pray folks. We are in some deep d..., d... and the best way out is not back to where we've been. We already know we can't stay there!
Decide for yourself what you can do, but definitely do something!
