Petition Tag - energy independence
Where as Dr. Mark Jacobson of Stanford University and Dr. Mark Delucchi of the University of California at Davis have conducted several studies now reported in the Nov 2009 issue of Scientific American, the March 2011 issue of Energy Policy and now in the Feb 2013 issue of Energy Policy on powering the world, the United States and the State of New York 100% with renewable energy, with existing technology, without fossil fuel or nuclear power by 2030.
The US Department of Energy should conduct a feasibility study and implement such a plan in the US, with all deliberate speed to save the country and the planet from global warming and further environmental destruction from the impact of fossil fuel and nuclear power.
I have an idea to put this country back on track. The plan is to get the country energy independent and pave the road for a hydrogen fuel based economy. The plan is as follows:
1. Build Synthesis plants at every major coal reserve area, both low and high sulfur, as impurities are removed through synthesis process. This will be done with Federal Reserve money.
2. At least one tank at every facility will have to designate that tank for synthetic gas and one for synthetic diesel if diesel is sold there. Government assistance will be incorporated for this through the means of Federal Reserve funds.
3. Army core of engineers will be involved in the major stages of development as this is an existing entity within the government along with private enterprise, AKA major oil industries that want to participate. Several oil companies, such as Shell, BP, Exon Mobile, want this to happen, because there is a great deal less taxation on synthetic fuels.
4. Utilizing synthetic fuels will reduce pollution by 50% in every major US city, as impurities are removed from the fuel during synthesis process. These impurities are all by-products that the companies can make money off of as there is a market for everything produced. Begin global distribution of synthetic gas and diesel.
5. After establishment of global enterprising, mass production of solar energy panels will be paid for through the massive amount of profit margins gained. Lets turn our deserts into solar arrays. The synthetic fuels is a critical stepping stone in ensuring profitable means to which to pay for the road to the hydrogen fuel based economy.
6. Begin production of hydrogen plants in coastal regions as the natural ocean water is ideal for the ionization to enable use to produce hydrogen by electrolysis out of water. Infrastructure will follow suit and will enable us to become a global energy supplier of hydrogen, the fuel of the future. This will allow fuel cell cars to be cost effective. This will also allow future generations to not have to inherit the problem. We will profit hugely from doing this.
To get there we need petitions going on at every Wal Mart, Kroger, every place that we think a great deal of people go so that we can get enough signatures to enable us to lobby congress into making this happen. I know that I cannot due this alone and that there will have to be donation cans at these places of the petitioning so that we can get the word out to more people. These donations will be used for the purposes of advertising campaigns for the Energy Independence effort.
There is a sense of urgency on this matter as the ever encroachment of high fuel costs is taking a huge toll on the economy. You see, you cannot solve problems without finding the root cause, would you agree? I have found the root cause of economic problems in this country and know it is due to the high cost of energy. Historically since the dawn of the industrial revolution any time we have had it good, the majority of the populas, it is a direct result of cheap reliable energy. I know that by doing this, we could reduce the price of fuel back down to 1.25 per gallon within three years, given things go according to plan. This will reduce the cost of shipping and mainly, most importantly the cost of production of goods and services in this country. What that means is that we are far more competitive in the global economy. I need your assistance in this effort as we need to act fast!

"The U.S. is rich in the conditions favorable for renewable power production," according to McKinsey & Company's 2007, "U.S. Greenhouse Gas Abatement Mapping Initiative."
Their study also concludes that more efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning equipment for residential use could abate 55 megatons of carbon monoxide emissions per year. Likewise, commercial buildings could abate 45 megatons of carbon monoxide, totaling in the abatement of 100 megatons of CO2 annually. Advanced geothermal technologies in HVAC should be recognized as key components in this reduction.
Geothermal heating and air conditioning is one of the least publicized, yet most promising green technology currently available. It needs to be included in new energy bill legislation.
