Renewable Energy = Upgrade Our Government


A Green Technology Economy and the "Occupy Movement"

A Green Technology Referendum That
Should Be Added To The List Of Demands
by cleanelectric 9/29/2011

One of the "Occupy Official Demands" should be an Environmental and Economic Stimulus Directive to install solar panels and (cylindrical) wind turbines along every interstate highway, roadway, parking lot, warehouse roof, tall building and home in the country.
We need an electric car initiative and an electric farm equipment initiative (tractors, harvesters etc.)
We need a world-wide directive that states that oil is more valuable and will last longer as a manufacturing ingredient and not as a fuel. It should not be used as a fuel.
There are 925 Million People going hungry on the planet every day out of 7 billion people total, that is 1/7th of earths population going hungry. Food prices are forecast to double in 18 years meaning that 4/7th of earths population will go hungry. Growing crops for Bio Fuels is a waste of badly needed food crops. Bio Fuels are still burned and still pollute and should not be used.
The U.S. still gets half it's electricity from coal. It is the dirtiest, most polluting fossil fuel of all. The Canadian Tar Sands are the dirtiest source of all other sources. The damage coal causes to the environment means that it is a false economy and is really of no value to the community. It should not be used.

Natural Gas burns cleaner than coal, but it still burns and it still pollutes. Extracting natural gas pollutes ground water permanently. fracturing rock a mile under earths surface to get the natural gas is like shattering earths ribs and could cause earthquakes and other irreversable damage. It should not be used.

Nuclear Power is only clean until there is a leak. Dozens of America's largest cities are within the 50 mile "fatal zone" of nuclear reactors. They should be mothballed as their usefull life expires.
Green Technology as in Solar, Wind, and Tidal Energy Generation: electric vehicles, and "intermittent source" power storage and "load leveling" are in their infancy as the Model T Ford was once the infancy of automobiles.

Nuclear Power and ALL fossil fuels will only continue to get more and more expensive and contribute to corporate and government corruption, and contribute to the instability of global politics,economics and every countries food supply as time goes on.

A Green Technology Economy will provide more security to each countries agriculture system and environment, energy independence, and a new profitable economy for all. It will become more and more efficient as it is installed and develops.

These directives should become global and not just American.
