I personally work as a energy broker (selling electricity in deregulated markets at discount in Texas) as well as offering residential service in same markets I offer both customers business and homes a choice of Green or Standard and try to push the green most times higher (not always 80+% of the time) and have been able to sell 15MW Green Vs 100MW Non in the last 5 years but that's up form 0 green five years ago. I also have sold 10 solar systems in DFW zero out of pocket to the owner and lower rates for 20 years www.gosolardfw.com (not just for DFW but most of the us) area this year. I believe green is the way to go (by the way i make the same or less on green energy sales).

 

Pass it on, the planet you save may be your own.

Hi, I have a good idea to produce electrical energy from solar energy using what I want to call SPUDS Solar powered up draft slopes. Simple greenhouse roof holds in warm air which is allowed to travel up slope of mountain through turbines to produce electrical energy. If interested email me, mghertel (at) execpc.com I need lots of help with the design and funding however I am sure if built well it would show a good profit quickly.

They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo.You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.

The DIRTY ENERGY SOURCES long history of profiting from our blood and treasure while they despoil the biosphere.

The following quote from a peer reviewed book is of extreme importance to all Americans:

Dilworth (2010-03-12). Too Smart for our Own Good (pp. 399-400). Cambridge University Press. Kindle Edition.

"As suggested earlier, war, for example, which represents a cost for society, is a source of profit to capitalists. In this way we can partly understand e.g. the American military expenditures in the Persian Gulf area. Already before the first Gulf War, i.e. in 1985, the United States spent $47 billion projecting power into the region. If seen as being spent to obtain Gulf oil, It AMOUNTED TO $468 PER BARREL, or 18 TIMES the $27 or so that at that time was paid for the oil itself.

In fact, if Americans had spent as much to make buildings heat-tight as they spent in ONE YEAR at the end of the 1980s on the military forces meant to protect the Middle Eastern oil fields, THEY COULD HAVE ELIMINATED THE NEED TO IMPORT OIL from the Middle East.

So why have they not done so? Because, while the $468 per barrel may be seen as being a cost the American taxpayers had to bear, and a negative social effect those living in the Gulf area had to bear, it meant only profits for American capitalists. "

Note: I added the bold caps emphasis on the barrel of oil price, money spent in one year and the need to import oil from the Middle East.

This totally unjustified profit, never mind the needless loss of lives, then increases the power of the fossil fuel corporations to perpetuate a biosphere harming dirty fuel status quo. How? By "funding" politicians with rather large "donations" to keep renewable energy from competing with dirty energy.

If all this was just about power politics, I might not be that concerned. Humans, particularly the overly ambitious and aggressive ones, have always fought and schemed to control and fleece the population at large.

But now we know the future of our biosphere is at stake. Now we know the entire edifice of dirty energy is a knife in the back of the biosphere that will destroy our species and many others.

The system, as defined by the fossil fuel fascist dystopia that currently runs most of the human affairs among the 1 billion population in the developed world that is saddling the other 6 billion, who are totally free of guilt for causing it, with this climate horror we are beginning to experience, IS quite stubborn and does not wish to change the status quo.

Mother nature will force it to do so.

Whether it is done within the next two decades or not (i.e. a switch to 100% PLUS bioremediation Renewable Energy steady state economy) will dictate the size of the consequent die off, not only of humans but thousands of other species as well.

We are now in a climate cake that has been baked for about 1,000 years according to atmospheric, objective, proven with experimental data, science.

If the crash program to switch to renewable energy is to begin soon, I expect the trigger for the crash program will be the first ice free arctic summer (according to my estimates) in 2017. But millions of people demanding a transition to 100% renewable Energy will give us a fighting chance to win the Climate Victory.

You can help us leave dirty energy sources that are killing us behind. I started a petition on Care2: Demand Liberty From Fossil Fuels Through 100% Renewable Energy WWII Style Effort. I'm hoping that if enough people sign my petition, we can make a difference. Will you help me collect more by adding your name?

Posters to download and print to publicize the petition:





Here is the link to the petition:  http://www.care2.com/go/z/e/Ai3Tb

For those who don't wish to bother signing or are concerned for your "privacy". Hello? Hello? This is the year 2014! By 2030  periods where the "Humid Heat Stroke Index" is so high that the human body can no longer maintain a normal core temperature will become common. Home Sap is on the short list for extinction! That is sorta more important than hiding from the NSA or the CIA now ISN'T IT? And I DO NOT see ANY of the home addresses or e-mail addresses anyway, Care2 does! So, if you CARE about future generations,  you  have ZERO excuse, unless you are a bought and paid for climate denying, war profiteering LOW LIFE GREEDBALL, for NOT signing.

Accept the fact you are a NIHILSTIC DEATH CULT ACCESSORY to the HOMO SAP SUICIDE or sign here (and pass this on to everyone you care about to sign too!).

I come from a Texas oil family, and I have known since grade school that the production, processing, transport, and burning of oil and gas is DIRTY, and that the politics behind oil is even dirtier. We need to turn away from oil, gas, and coal as fast as we can and use wind and solar power to produce electricity for electric powered mass transit, freight trains, and passenger trains, both high speed and conventional Amtrak. Stop the Keystone XL pipeline, the mountaintop removal method of coal mining, fracking on public lands, the oil wars in the Middle East, and wean us away from fossil fuels.

We have to pressure our government to take major action to stop the degradation of the biosphere from climate change.

Fracking is poisoning aquifers and destroying good farm land while sickening us, our animals and the wildlife! We must stop this despicable profit-over-planet horror!

 It's time to eliminate the excuse our fossil fuel loving oligarchy uses for pollutiong our biosphere and contriving "resources" wars for oil that bring nothing but misery to us and profits for them.

The chemical corporations are also just as guilty of polluting our air, ground and water because they use fossil fuels and do not employ closed loop recycling to keep harmful chemicals from damaging the biosphere.

Help stop this pollution by making oil a liability, not an asset!

Why?  Because that is what it actually is!

Burning fossil fuels is killing us. the sooner we stop "valuing" that poison, the sooner we strip the power away from the war lovers that wield it. Our very democracy is in jeopardy because of centralized energy corporations. That's right; it's just as much about political power as about energy.

Demanding 100% Renewable energy is the way, not only to the extremely important goal of a viable biosphere, but absolutely essential to regaining our democracy from the fossil fuel industry that buys our politicians with the profits from pollution fuels while said politicians keep fossil fuel and nuclear power plant "subsides" (taxpayer theft!) to tilt the energy playing field against renewable energy.

Read this quote from a peer reviewed book by Dilworth and pass it on so people can learn what oil REALLY costs we-the-people:

http://renewablerevolutio...newables/msg1455/#msg1455

This is a chart of the fossil fuel subsidies versus renewable energy! If that isn't a "level" energy playing field that looks like an alpine slope, I don't know what is.

I have been working actively on the global warming problem since mid-70s, including in Pres. Carter's renewables program out of Los Alamos Lab. As an architect, I have designed many dozens of solar buildings and other applications, including the first solar county courthouse in America. It is a disgrace that we had a 40 year lead time on this and blew it to profit a few fatcats.

We must detox from fossil fuels right now. We should have started in the 70s.

From a Comment Thread at Thom Hartmann   :icon_mrgreen:

Quote
"I am but the traffic noise in the background at the outdoor cafe."

More like the exhaust fumes of said "traffic" (i.e. it appears to be innocuos but we know better).

I've watched and read the comments and articles of many intelligent fellows like yourself and have a fairly good working knowledge of your modus operandi.

1. You are quite selective about who you "quibble" with in what appears to be a lack of logic for continually ignoring the 24/7 dirty energy fleecing of the American taxpayer. But it's not lack of logic or intelligence. It's corvus oculum corvi non eruit.

2. You enjoy the corruptus in extremis energy playing field status quo and vigorously defend it because cui prodest scelus is fecit.

3. You sir, are clinging to a past from which you profited economcally and refuse to accept the damage to other humans and the biosphere that you have been a party to. Instead, you wish to claim that anyone who uses ANY energy that came from fossil fuels or nuclear and advocates a 100% transition to Renewable Energy is a hypocrite. You know that isn't true but those "exhaust fumes" of yours sometimes reach those without metaphoric "gas masks" to see through your empty rhetoric disguised as impish comments.

But just for the hell of it, let's say you are right and all of us who want dirty energy out now are hypocrites, fools or worse. What have you got to lose by signing the petition? After all, nobody is going to listen to us because we are bonkers, right? YOU are the one that is supposed to be grounded in "reality" so we haven't got a prayer of getting traction on our "silly demand" so why not humor us "poor deluded souls"?

Do your good deed for today: Sign here. http://www.care2.com/go/z/e/Ai3Tb

And while you are at it, why don't you argue this with your SAME ARGUMENT against pro-renewable energy people that still use some fossil fuels in daily life (see Dilworth quote below)? That is. that we are HYPOCRITES to support WARS FOR OIL and a BLOATED MILITARY? It's EXACTLY the same argument. If the shoe fits and all that, eh?

The following quote from a peer reviewed book is of extreme importance to all Americans:
Dilworth (2010-03-12). Too Smart for our Own Good (pp. 399-400). Cambridge University Press. Kindle Edition.

Quote
"As suggested earlier, war, for example, which represents a cost for society, is a source of profit to capitalists. In this way we can partly understand e.g. the American military expenditures in the Persian Gulf area. Already before the first Gulf War, i.e. in 1985, the United States spent $47 billion projecting power into the region. If seen as being spent to obtain Gulf oil, It AMOUNTED TO $468 PER BARREL, or 18 TIMES the $27 or so that at that time was paid for the oil itself.

In fact, if Americans had spent as much to make buildings heat-tight as they spent in ONE YEAR at the end of the 1980s on the military forces meant to protect the Middle Eastern oil fields, THEY COULD HAVE ELIMINATED THE NEED TO IMPORT OIL from the Middle East.

So why have they not done so? Because, while the $468 per barrel may be seen as being a cost the American taxpayers had to bear, and a negative social effect those living in the Gulf area had to bear, it meant only profits for American capitalists. "

ote: I added the bold caps emphasis on the barrel of oil price, money spent in one year and the need to import oil from the Middle East.

This totally unjustified profit, never mind the needless loss of lives, then increases the power of the fossil fuel corporations to perpetuate a biosphere harming dirty fuel status quo. How? By "funding" politicians with rather large "donations" to keep renewable energy from competing with dirty energy. It's still going on RIGHT NOW!  :(

Sign here. http://www.care2.com/go/z/e/Ai3Tb or buy more stock in oil and coal corporations that have rewarded you  ( war profiteering and contrived artificial made-in-Wall Street oil price shock welfare queen, much?  ). with all those dividends that the REST OF US have funded by paying our taxes so you could enjoy la dolce vita.

We aren't hypocrites but we HAVE BEEN SUCKERS! You sir, are the hypocrite. But you knew that. It's part of the fun to do an Orwellian flip in true psychological projection, isn't it?

Demand Liberty From Fossil Fuels Through 100% Renewable Energy WWII Style Effort
author: Anthony G. Gelbert
target: President Obama
signatures: 204

we've got 204 signatures, help us get to 100,000

It's time to reverse all this environmental trashing and get real about the fact that sustainability is not optional for a caring, intelligent human population. We are the caretakers of the biosphere because we are self aware beings. It's high time we began living up to our responsibility to be good stewards of nature.

We need to roll up our National sleeves and GIFT FUTURE GENERATIONS with a VIABLE BIOSPHERE! If we put our coordinated efforts into it, we can, like we did with the Liberty Ships in WWII, get it DONE in less than ten years!

Natural gas is worse than dirty coal. It is due to methane leaking. Also, via fracking, it is destroying our water supply.

This is a tremendously important and crucial opportunity to do what's right for the people and our planet!

We spent a winter on the desert with only solar energy at our camp, with far fewer problems that we expected. It was not a big deal to power 2 computers, 2 phones, a TV, and an MP3 player. We did use propane to cook and heat water, and to power our fridge for an extra $20 a month

I have luckily lived in peace all my life and I believed I was “free”. I have had plenty of opportunities in my life and I have the chance to realize how special we are the human beings. I have a dream and many of us we share the same dream. We want, we wish, we dream of a better world to live in, where our children can grow healthy and free.     Because of this, we sign this petition. 

I have luckily lived in peace all my life and I believed I was “free”. I have had plenty of opportunities in my life and I have the chance to realize how special we are the human beings because we are intelligent, we are creative and we dream.   :emthup:

I have learnt that my life has the same value as the life of a person that lived in the past and the life of person who will live in the future. They probably dream also of a better future for us or for the future predecessors.. We all have different dreams but I hope that we humans keep on dreaming and carry on with this miracle of having an intelligent life in a marvelous place like planet earth.

For us, for the people. Andres

I've been off grid using solar electrcity and solar heating for more than 25 years. I also worked for an electric utility and saw how their investments in massive central coal, nuclear and natural gas plants and the interstate transmission lines required to get the energy was actually more expensive and less reliable than the long term costs of solar, wind and geothermal power. But the utility used very sophisticated bookkeeeping to hide the real cost of energy and the greater customer benefits of investments in energy efficiency and renewable energy.

All over the world we, people and NGOs have to be more proactive for changing the energy sources to renewables as gifted by our nature, stopping using the fossil fuel sources killing our nature and future.

Progress of Petition to Rid the Planet of Dirty Energy through 100% Renewables

 


CA  Jul 09, 18:22  # 243
Stop Oil - Start Future _ NOW !

OR  Jul 09, 17:12  # 241
What we pay for fossil fuel is way more than what we shell out at the pump, when you consider the fossil-fuel-pillage wars and the trashing of our environment. Fossil fuel = tyranny and death. 

DC  Jul 08, 18:55  # 236
Anything less than total renewable energy is at best irresponsible and at worst irrational.

NJ  Jul 08, 18:38  # 235
How and where will the 1% live after they have destroyed our world? If we do not act and act with courage. It will be as predicted we will all die not with a bang but a wimper. Please consider our children and grandchildren. What will they think of us if we do nothing?

OR  Jul 08, 01:26  # 233
why are our "leaders" such followers? idiots.

Ahole Hannity is forever complaining that President Obama is destroying the economy and that there will not be anything left for his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He is an utter POS.He is leading the charge to destroy the planet for OUR grandchildren and great grandchildren. He really doesn't give a damn about his children and grandchildren.

Progress on Petition to Demand a 100% World War 2 Style Transition to Renewable energy using the Manufacturing Miracle Model of the Liberty Ships:  


AB Jul 13, 15:01 # 288
The technology for renewable energy has already been developed and just needs investment.Leave fossil fuels down in the ground, No more pipelines!
NY Jul 13, 09:10 # 285
Let's move on to renewables while there's still time to lessen greenhouse gases that heat the planet.
PA Jul 13, 07:56 # 283
Don't let the fossil fuel industry destroy the country.

This Whole Government is nothing but a Corporation, filled with a bunch of hypocrites, greedy bastards, looking out for their own self's and what they can screw the people out of. In this case, the people's money, the people's land, the people's Air, and dignity. With lies, Pollution, using slowly Genocide to kill, and rub the people of their life. Look around, open your eyes, such is all around you, if you only see reality instead of the lies they tell you. The USA, a historic leader in new technology, is getting left behind because of the profit-over-planet biosphere degrading fossil fuel industry that buys our politicians with the profits from pollution producing fuels while said politicians keep fossil fuel and nuclear power plant "subsides" (taxpayer theft!) to tilt the energy playing field against renewable energy. We need to ELIMINATE DIRTY ENERGY SUBSIDIES and start the FULL TRANSITION to CLEAN ENERGY NOW! America DOES NOT have to play second fiddle to being the first country to win the Climate Victory because of idiot greedball, war loving fossil fuelers. As part of being responsible, caring human beings, we have to pressure our government to take major action to stop the degradation of the biosphere from climate change. This is causing death and disease to both domestic animals and wildlife, all of which have done nothing to deserve such a horrible fate at our hands. It's time to eliminate the excuse our fossil fuel loving oligarchy uses for "resources" wars for oil that bring nothing but misery to us and profits for them.

This is the most important issue of most of our lives...we should already have been 100% renewable by now. Suggestion...the picture at the top of the page...change "Target" to "Goal" (or something simlilar). You don't want the Target Corporation to think you are targeting them specifically
NH Jul 10, 03:57 # 254
