While I work on computers and websites, my greatest passion and love always has been all forms of alternate energy. Now that it’s cool again (or finally fashionable) to be green, I’d love to energize and build a raving group of people who never will let us slide into energy apathy again.
My mission is to gather and discuss all information regarding the support of new energy sources, conservation of existing energy sources and the transition from the old to the new. Here is the one place to consolidate and exchange all information concerning current strategies and innovative ideas about all energy. Here is the no BS zone; we will expose the truth and debunk the myths and legends about new energy, while carefully examining our reliance on the old finite shrinking reserves of fossil fuels as we move into an uncertain future.
The scope of this mission will include, but not be limited to, the following:
All of these are the basic necessities that are essential to our survival. The United States has long been a leader in technology and innovation. Our sad decline down the slippery slope to energy apathy, even as Europe developed a superior infrastructure, was due to many factors. Some say it was corporate greed backed by the power of lobbyists to ensure status quo, government short sightedness, consumer ignorance and the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” mentality that got us into this mess. Regardless of the causes, here we are with no bullet trains, no comprehensive effective light rail systems, McMansion houses, and giant trucks, SUV and automobiles that consume the most energy of any country on the planet. Let’s get on the ball and become a world leader again instead of being slaves to the market. Let’s learn our lesson (as we should have from the 1970’s) and reverse the trend. I hope it doesn’t take 50 years (as experts have predicted) to undo the automobile-based mess that we have gotten ourselves addicted to.
