Require that all new construction have solar panels.
2. Older homes would recieve, prop tax cuts if they comply.
3. Diminish the Amount of veichles allowed into Manhattan.
4. Taxi/police/Gov’t etc. should only invest in Electric cars.
5. Wind generated energy.
6. Incentive program for housing crisis which allows for
7. Above ground train system.

There is no point in turning a waste product to fuel if it requires nearly as much energy to make as they will give you.
Wind farms though are a win win (unless your a bird or a bird watcher :) as they produce a large amount of usable power from an under used source. Even solar finally has the potential to make big inroads with the newer types of films being made. Now if only we could get some big dollars invested into fusion.

BTW the smart “big oil” folks are starting to realize that they should be in the business of big energy and are starting to move the industry in that direction.

It’s mostly a waste product, isn’t it? Is anyone doing research into this?

This funny eco video suggests a national fat-to-fuel program. Sure, the idea of converting cellulite into fuel for cars might be a little far-fetched, but I think it’s worth it to entertain all kinds of ideas if we’re ever going to find the kind of “silver buckshot” we’ll need to acheieve sustainable energy independence.

Many things can be made from h the cannabis plant. Plus it would give a boom the the farming industry. The sun, water, time and, God, it is the perfect Energy source and has a very short grow cycle.

Big oil and big power will starve out the entreprenours until they can use their embedded base to pay for the distribution channels. It happenned with the telephone comnanies and video to the home. Watch it happen again with elctrical power, with hydrogen fuel, with solar power.
