Replace oil speculators with leaders promoting green energy vision

We watch helplessly as the gas prices rises, while wall street dealers manipulate the market and make their quick buck.Self interest is the basic instinct for people making a living.

What the world needs more are people who are making the difference in the world they live in and bring benefits to others.Our energy policy needs a long term view and leaders that set the stage for a better future. Some politicians want to drill for more oil or seek gas deposit and continue relying on the old nonrenewable sources of energy. This short sighted approach does not get us out of this slavery and dependence on oil.

It takes courage to fight the energy independence war and some short term sacrifices are necessary to conserve energy and get serious about stopping wasteful habits.Where are the Leaders who will tell the truth with the risk of losing their seat? It is time for each one of us to take lead by adopting the green approach and support the development of green energy. Our kids future depends on it.

Enrgy Freedom-How to Avoid $5 per gallon Gas price?

Last week the oil prices went up again and the gas prices raised by 20cents per gallon within 3 days. Why? the consumption did not increase so what makes these prices jump so fast? Is it the fear that an attack on nuclear facility of our enemy nation may happen and what they will do to retaliate?
As long as we are not free from importing foreign oil, we have to face this problem.Since the transportation sector has significant demand, the solution deals with changing to alternative fuel vehicles. Here are some practical solution where our defense dollars should be redirected;
1. Start with making plug in hybrids cost same as ordinary car with tax credits.
2. Support and develop compressed natural gas vehicles with bio methane projects at the farms where waste can be converted to methane.
3. Develop larger capacity batteries to get 200-300 mile range for EV commuter cars.
It is time that our national priority for Defense include Green Strategy whose sole purpose is to see energy independence via Conservation and Alternative energy generation. Let us not wait for the Gas prices to go up to $5 to $ 8 dollar per gallon. Our National leaders must Act now!This would be a better preemptive strike for Peace.
