well, son...that is what my platform includes. it also should be
de-centralized which mean it would be ultimately cheap energy, tending not
to generate obscenely huge profits...just energy. the huge corporations are
trying to replace oil with another centralized product...be it bio-fuels,
"clean coal," nuclear...which they will control. and they are saying are
environmentally friendly! of course they boldly lie! and then they tell us
we won't have to change our life style or the american dream...if we switch
over to their new product!

In Freedom,
Frank Moore

> We're borrowing money from China to buy oil from the Persian Gulf

> But if we grab hold of that common thread and pull it hard, all of

>
> The answer is to end our reliance on carbon-based fuels.

> Can we really get all our electricity from sources like solar and
> wind in 10 short years?
>
> Scientists have confirmed that enough solar energy falls on the
> surface of the earth every 40 minutes to meet 100 percent of the
> entire world's energy needs for a full year. Tapping just a small
> portion of this solar energy could provide all of the electricity
> America uses.
> And enough wind power blows through the Midwest corridor every day
> to also meet 100 percent of US electricity demand.
>
> And of course, all this means more good jobs to re-power our economy:
>
> When we send money to foreign countries to buy nearly 70 percent of
> the oil we use every day, they build new skyscrapers and we lose
> jobs. When we spend that money building solar arrays and windmills,
> we build competitive industries and gain jobs here at home.
