Unfortunately, he didn't listen to me and he has taken five years to make baby steps and is not taking the steps we need to in order to fully save the planet and defend our nation.
If he had heard me, doing so would have given more substance to his slogans about Change and he would fully funded and advocated for Solar, Wind, and Hydrogen instead of funding nuclear energy, partially funding Solar and Wind, and supporting Natural Gas drilling and off shore Oil drilling. If he had acted on my ideas his Presidency would have been more powerful and successful and our economy and employment situation would be improved and we would be further down the road to a zero emission and energy independent nation and planet.
Hopefully he will listen to me and act on these ideas in the future. Please help me to get him to implement these suggestions when you write him and your other politicians to demand that they take action.
Dear Sen. Barack Obama,
I hope this letter finds you well and happy.
My name is Todd Norman and I have some ideas that can help you be more powerful and effective in your Presidential campaign and in your intention of manifesting positive change for America.
Thank you for listening and acting on these suggestions.
I’ve suggested to Howard Dean and others in the Democratic Party that they go all the way and Go Clear instead of just Going Green, by donating hydrogen, solar, and wind technologies to The Pepsi Center and convert the 2008 Democratic National Convention to be the first zero emission and energy independent Convention ever. I also suggested that the entire Party use these technologies to run their offices, cars, buses, and TV studios, commercials, speeches, and run zero emission and energy independent campaigns, and thus do what they can to lead the nation to fight Climate Change.
I did send your campaign an email about it in early 2007 in an effort get you to add your support to these ideas, but no one ever got back to me. Maybe you just didn’t get my mail because it was filtered out by your staff. So I’m writing, again, to try to communicate these ideas to you in the hope that you will hear my wisdom, act on it, be more successful in your campaign and save the planet, our country, and our economy by leading the entire nation to become zero emission and energy independent.
Howard Dean said, "We're looking into it,” when I spoke to him and there is going to be a lot of Green aspects to the Convention, but no one ever talk to me about these ideas so I can only assume that they are not implementing them. It’s probably too late to add your support of my Convention idea. I gave them to the Party 1.5 years ago, so they had plenty of time to do it. But you still could advocate for these technologies and add my other ideas to your campaign and to your agenda when you are elected.
If it is too late to convert the entire building of the Convention, and the Democratic National Committee won’t take action, then you could give your acceptance speech at the Convention with your microphone powered by a portable hydrogen fuel cell. It could still be the first zero emission and energy independent Presidential Nomination.
Please consider using some of your TV Commercial campaign money to buy solar panels, small wind generators, and hydrogen fuel cells, convert your campaign offices, and your limos, cars, and tour buses to burn hydrogen, because doing so makes them negative emission and they clean the air instead of polluting it, as you drive.
Please make the conversion to sustainable technologies a personal priority in your own life and your campaign, then a national priority when you’re elected.
If you did, you would get free advertising, on top of clean technologies. You could be on all the media for your hydrogen fuel powered speeches and commercials, and hydrogen burning cars and buses, and your bold vision for reviving the economy and saving the planet, instead of being on all the media about Pastor Wright.
I used to be a TV Reporter in a small town, and if you had rolled up to my town in a negative emission hydrogen burning Bus, that runs on the Hydrogen gas you produced yourself, I would have come out to cover that. Thus you would have received free media coverage in my town. I went to a Democratic Caucus meeting and there were people for the national party talking about the Convention, and they said that they are having a hard time getting their message out, because people use cell phones now, which they can’t call, and they have TVO’s that cut out commercials. But people don’t usually block the news, or news papers! This conversion would generate local and national news coverage, for free, and you’re media money would be more effective in getting your message out, more than just another TV commercial would. You could also highlight these technologies and your use of them, in the TV commercials you do make, and even use them to power the TV studio you use to shoot your commercials, which would make them more powerful, visionary, and effective, and generate even more free media coverage.
You would then be financially supporting sustainable technology manufacturing companies and American jobs, with some of your campaign millions, instead of giving it all to Media Corporations.
You would prove to the voters, with your actions, that you’re serious about fighting climate change and our energy independence, and demonstrating what you’re going to do when you get into office, and not just talking about it.
You could not only be historic as the first African American President, but you could also be historic for the first zero emission and energy independent Presidential campaign and nomination, as well.
If you need money to do this, you could talk to Oprah. I’m sure she and others will be very willing to contribute money to your buying Solar panels, wind generators, and hydrogen fuel cells, hydrogen buses, cars, and limos, and supporting your efforts to save the planet, rather than giving money to just another TV commercial. Also talk to Roy McAlister, the President of the American Hydrogen Association, who can help you convert the cars, limos, and buses.
You could also demand that the Presidential Debates – the stage, the room, and the broadcast, be powered cleanly, as well.
I’m sorry I haven’t read your book, The Audacity of Hope, but I’m impressed by your passion, intelligence, and vision. If you acted on these ideas you could be winning over more voters by putting more substance behind your rhetoric about Hope and Change.
Thank you for opposing the Iraq war. That’s the main reason I’m supporting you in your bid for office, by attempting to make it more powerful. Now please demonstrate that we don’t need wars for oil, by running a Clear, clean, and zero emission energy independent campaign, because it makes your efforts against the war more powerful and effective.
Please stop supporting off shore oil drilling, clean coal, and nuclear energy as a solution to our energy crisis and climate change.
Hydrogen beats oil and nuclear on every level, environmentally, economically, and politically. Converting to renewable and clean sources of energy would totally help our failing economy, create jobs, clean up our skies, eliminate our need to fight wars for oil, and be doing what we can to save the Planet for our children.
Hydrogen beats oil politically because you will be able to powerfully say to the American people... ‘I’m living out my spirituality, morality, and politics by running a zero emission and energy independent, “Clear,” campaign. My tour bus is a negative emission bus and we are cleaning the air as we drive. I’m not polluting your children with my home, car, and operations. If you choose me, my polices will not pollute or bankrupt your children and I will lead the nation to become zero emission and energy independent. With my plan we will never again be held hostage to high energy, transportation, health care, and food costs. My opponent is polluting your children with his car, his choices and policies, and is happy to have your children fight a war for oil for another 100 years. I voted against the Iraq war and everyday I’m proving that we don’t have to have wars for oil, because we don’t need to use oil any more to fuel our cars or power and heat our homes. My opponent’s policies are killing our economy, the planet, our best and brightest, and people in other countries, unnecessarily for oil. I am not.
I believe that saving the planet is the true defense of every nation and every child. I have the passion, vision, and talent to change America for the better. Therefore I believe that I am your Clear choice to lead our nation and the world into this new century. We can save the planet and our economy by going into a better direction. So let’s all, get on it, now!’
If you spoke and acted that powerfully, people would be even more impressed, inspired, and you would win over more voters, including independent and non-voters, which as you rightly point out are 50% of the population, and who could greatly help you get elected.
Please also be more powerful and specific about what you’re going to do in office. Not being specific enough was the mistake that Al Gore and John Kerry made when they ran, and they ended up appearing to be vague and spineless.
My new book, Ideas to Save the Planet, is coming out soon and this letter is a chapter in it. I plan to send you a copy when it’s printed. Please read it and especially my other chapters, My Call to Greatness to the American People, My Invitations to Be More Powerful Al Gore, Gov. Ritter, and The Democratic Party, and What Politicians Can Do, for more details specific ideas and on what I think politicians can do to save the planet. Please act on these ideas when you get into office.
Also, when you win the election please drive up to the Inauguration in a hydrogen burning limo and power that speech with a fuel cell, as well. Convert the White House to solar, wind, and hydrogen, then lead the nation by your example.
Thank you for listening and acting on these ideas. I hope they are helpful to you and to our nation.
Sen. Obama, please choose to Be More Powerful and lead the United States and the world to fight climate change by becoming zero emission and energy independent. The survival of the planet and prosperity and security of our nation depends on it.
Todd A. Norman
Ideas to Save the Planet
Well... I'm so glad that the world didn't end on 12-21-12!
But unfortunately the survival of this planet and of humanity is still threatened.
Hurricanes like Katrina and Sandy are causing massive damage, ice is still melting and the seas are rising, thousands of species are going extinct, and 5 million people world wide are killed every year from air pollution. Also 33,000 children starve to death everyday, 1 billion people don't have safe water, and 2 billion don't have good housing.
We have a lot of important work to do and I am trying to educate the world about the solutions to hunger, thirst, and climate change that I'm seeing and to mobilize the world to go about saving our natural environment and all of humanity.
We have the money, the man power of billions and lot of people all over the world are out of work, the abundant energy from Solar, Wind and Hydrogen are all around us and we have the technology and tools we need to access it to save ourselves, but some how we haven't had the will to mobilize to surive.
I think the missing ingredient is that we all need to make saving this planet a personal, national, and international priority, instead of being indifferent or leaving it to someone else to do it. That's why I started the The I'm On it! Pledge, where I'm challenging everyone to say to themselves and to the world...
Yes, I'll save the Planet!
I'm On It!
Because we need everyone to do what ever they can by Going Green, but also to go all the way with that beautiful intention to take action, fully save the planet, and to Go Clear, and live a zero emission energy independent lives by driving hydrogen burning cars that clean the air everywhere they go, converting power plants to burn Hydrogen instead of Coal, and living is disaster resistant homes that have solar, wind and hydrogen fuel cells on them.
(My version of Going Clear has nothing to do with Scientology. I came up with it independently. To me it means Clear Intentions - fully saving the planet, and not just being slightly more friendly to it. Clear Speech - Say Eliminate pollution, not just Reduce it, and living 100% zero emission and energy independent lives powered by Solar, Wind, and Hydrogen fuel cells and drive a hydrogen burning car that cleans the air everywhere you go, which leads to Clear Skies.)
I point to how we all can live that way in my book an in this website.
I don't claim to be an expert, or even a great writer or editor. I'm just doing what I can to save the world and my own life, and to fund my dream house so I can have a home and show the world how to live that way with my example.
My publisher Wordclay has gone out of business, but my eBook is still available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
I still believe that it's possible to save this planet and all of humanity.
I hope 2013 will be a new beginning for me and for humanity and things will finally start to turn around and get better for all of us.
Thank you for being here and for supporting my efforts by buying my ebook and donating to my Paypal, and emailing me with message of support and miracle connections to an editor, publicist, and new publisher for my book, and with help to implement these ideas, and to manifest my TV shows that convert homes and my Movie that shows the world what saving the planet could look like and how we could save it.
Thank you for saying Yes to my vision, my wisdom, and my hopes and dreams, for helping me to live a better life, and for hearing me, and acting on these ideas and mobilizing to save this planet.
I'm very grateful we're all still alive. Now let all, Get On It!, and take action to ensure that we not only survive, but also thrive and bloom into the future.
It's also not because they're paying their employees too much. I've worked in mail rooms and have dropped off mail at the end of the day to the back docks of post offices and personally seen how hard they work to process mail. I also have talked to many postal workers and told them how much I appreciate their efforts and support the Postal Service, because Congress and Republicans are treating them so poorly and actively trying to destroy their jobs and their Union with this legislation. Also one of them told me that he has been made to work 6 days a week for the past 6 months and had to work late into the night when he couldn't even see the addresses in the dark. So Postal workers work very hard and deserve to be paid well.
Also another misconception is that the US Postal Service is a drain on tax payers, when it's not tax payer funded.
We need to rescind that 2006 legislation and use the 1.5 Billion dollar surplus to modernize postal system, because even if people use email and pay bills online, we and businesses still need to ship physical items as well as support an institution that has served us well for over 200 years.
My solution is for us to put solar panels, wind generators, and hydrogen fuel cells on every US Post Office facility and convert all ground delivery vehicles and air planes to burn hydrogen.
Because if we did it would eliminate the energy costs that we are spending every year and thus save million and billions over time and make them more competitive.
Each office could be totally energy independent and never have a blackout because they would have a triple back of solar, wind, and a hydrogen fuel cell when there's no wind or sun. They could also generate their own hydrogen gas for their back up hydrogen fuel cell generators and delivery vehicles with solar, wind, and water.
Also hydrogen burning cars only have water vapor as their emission and they burn up the pollution that is already in the air as it goes through the engine, and thus clean the air everywhere they go. So they could be saving the planet and saving the cost of paying for gasoline.
Rural areas need their Post offices and the Postmen and women have to drive long distances to make deliveries. Converting their vehicles to burn hydrogen helps them to stay open, to get to where they're needed, and helps to save the planet.
They could be setting up solar and wind and be electrolyzing water to generate hydrogen at each air port to fuel their hydrogen burning planes.
We all need to make this conversion in order to survive and thrive, The US Postal Service could be leading the way in to a better and brighter future. If we made these changes it would not only save our postal service but it would also be an example to all Americans that their government can take positive action and it would be a daily example to our communities that everyone can live this way too. It would also jump start the manufacturing of these technologies and revolutionized all postal delivery and air travel. It would turn it all around from being a system that is failing into one that is thriving and being a role model to other countries and would help to get them to convert their postal systems as well.
Please help me to get the word out about this idea and help me save the US Postal Service and the planet by making it 100% zero emission and energy independent.
I honor and support all the current Patriots who are participating in the 99% and Occupy protests all over the US and the world.
Because for years I've been talking about mobilizing the nation and the world to save the planet and because I have a chapter in my book called, Activism Can Save the Planet.
In which I point to historical examples of how our societies have changed for the better after protests and the efforts of the Women"s rights, Civil rights, and Union and Workers rights movements.
I also give several suggestions on how protesters and activists can be more powerful in their work.
They can be more specific in their signs, and say "No War for Oil!" and change it to "No War for Oil! Demand Hydrogen, Solar, and Wind Now!" Because it isn't enough to just point out the outrage, we need to say the next sentence and point to the solution to the outrage. If we don't then conservative people dismiss us, as they are doing so now, for not offering an alternative, and we are perpetually outraged because the outrages never get solved.
I suggested that the Hollywood progressive people pull up to protests in a Hydrogen burning car, that cleans the air as they drive, to show the world that not only is oil killing the planet and wars for oil killing people, but also that we don't need to use oil anymore and that it's all totally unnecessary! Which would make their work against oil more powerful and effective.
Actors could also be protesting in carbon fiber shoes, and making real carbon footprints, and wearing their carbon instead of burning it. Hollywood progressives are generally wealthy enough to convert their car and homes and demand carbon fiber products, and by doing so they can support those industries and be example to the world about what's possible.
Having been very poor most of my life, I realized that not everyone can convert their cars and homes, but it doesn't take much money to take action.
You can educate yourself, think about creative ways to solve the world's problems, then write and self publish a book and website like I did. Emails are free. I have been sending out Invitations to Be More Powerful and Precision Guided Idea Bombs to people all over the world, for 13 years, in order to educate and inspire people to take action.
And as we all can see, it doesn't cost much to change your bank account to a Credit Union, or boycott businesses that are not paying taxes, oppressing their workers, or polluting our children. It also doesn't cost much to make a sign out of a piece of cardboard and stand in the streets to protest social and economic injustices, which can be very powerful. Powerful enough to spark a movement that has spread around the nation and the world.
Also in my book I point out that it's in governments best interest to treat their citizens better, because history as shown that if they don't, politicians will get thrown out of office, or get over thrown like the British in America, the French revolution, and recently in Egypt and the Arab Spring.
It's also in the wealthy people's best interest to treat their workers better, because they will do a better job making their products. Henry Ford was right to pay people enough to be able to buy his cars. And everyone's home prices go down when there are a lot of vacant foreclosed homes in the neighborhood. Business will also get boycotted less, have less union strikes, and have less people "going postal" and being so enraged that they would shoot up their offices.
I support the 99% movement, because I'm apart of the 99% and because I see that the greed of the wealthy is apart of the problems that are killing the planet. They are raping the earth for their greed, they are oppressing the masses, and they are manipulating politicians and policies that lead to wars for oil and environmental pollution, and are preventing new technologies which could be solving our collective problems, just because they think they would hurt their cash flows. Which is stupid because they could be getting rich by saving the planet instead of by killing it, because people will support the businesses that are saving the planet and not polluting their children.
I would like to see massive crowds, like the 2 million people at Obama's inauguration, in a march on Washington, as well as thousands more in smaller local marches in cities around the nation like what is happening now, (and caravans of hydrogen cars), to demand that the government mobilize like World War II to save the planet and put people back to work converting the nation to Hydrogen, Solar, and Wind, as well as to demand that our economic and political systems be more fair and functional.
Please email me if you're interested in helping me to start such a march and movement to save the planet, and let's harnesses the passionate activism that is gaining strength and not only demand that our economic system be repaired, the criminals on Wall Street be held accountable, that the people are protected instead of profits, and also mobilize to fight the most pressing problem we all face - ending climate change to insure the survival of this Planet and all of Humanity.
Thank you to all the people who are out in the streets, for acting out your spirituality and political and social consciousness. Rock On! and thanks for being, On It!, by making it a personal priority to solve the world's problems.
Everyone else, please add your voice, your passion, and your action to saving the planet and let's all, Get On It!, now!
You can read more details about my ideas on this issue in my book, Ideas to Save the Planet.
In my book I honor and appreciate Al Gore for his long commitment to educate the world about Climate Change and he is on my list of Heroes for the Planet. Al's movie An Inconvenient Truth, books, and his latest 24 hours of The Climate Reality Project were important contributions to the debate and have helped to wake up the world to the climate crisis.
But Al is not being as powerful as he could be or needs to be in his work, or as I am.
I support Al Gore and have sent him several letters during the past 12 years, which make up my chapter, My Invitations to Be More Powerful to Al Gore. I've also sent Al a copy of my book to communicate to him the ideas I'm seeing and my helpful suggestions, but unfortunately he has yet to respond to or act on any of them.
I'm trying to make Al more powerful and effective in his work because we all need him to be more successful in saving the planet.
Al is doing a great job of speaking powerfully about the problem of Climate Change, but he is not spending enough time on or being specific enough about the solutions to it.
In my book I take Al and the scientists at their word and believe what they're saying, but am focusing on what we can do about it.
I'm telling the world about gas cars that are converted to burn 100% hydrogen which clean the air as they drive, which have already existed for 91 years, and am advocating for converting all cars, trucks, and boats on the entire planet.
I also advocate for converting all coal fired power plants to burn hydrogen and thus making all grids 100% zero emission, and I have proof that it's possible on this website.
He could be using his fame and money and be showing the world by example by living a 100% zero emission life by powering all his homes and ranch with solar, wind, and hydrogen fuel cells. All his cars could be burning hydrogen. He could have pulled up to the Oscars and the Nobel Prize in a hydrogen burning Limo. The stage presentation in An Inconvenient Truth and the one tonight in The Climate Realty Project could have been powered by solar, wind, and hydrogen fuel cells.
He could have had a hydrogen burning car on the stage with him tonight, which he could have told the world about how it works, started it up, and would have been cleaning the air in the room the entire time he was speaking!
All of which would have made his work more powerful, because he would have not only pointed out the outrages and problems, but also demonstrated the solutions to the problems of climate change.
Tonight Al only mentioned solutions during the last 10 minutes of his 1 hour show and only mentioned solar and wind, which demonstrated my point, of his focusing 80/20 on the problem and 20/80 on the solutions.
He did the same thing in An Inconvenient Truth were he only gave the solutions 15 minutes and in the credits, when many people would have already walked out.
I am speaking more powerfully than Al Gore because unlike Al and most of the Green community, I'm talking about fully saving the planet by saying the word, "Eliminate" and not just "Reduce" pollution.
I'm saying Zero Emissions and not Carbon Neutral.
I'm talking about ending climate change and not just educating people about it or mitigating it's effects.
I'm being specific about how everyone can use the technologies that can get us to a zero emission and energy independent planet.
Also I have ideas for a TV show that goes around converting entire homes to solar, wind and hydrogen, and another show that converts entire small towns.
My idea for a movie is, A Zero Emission Energy Independent Planet, that shows the world how we can save the planet and shows everyone what saving it could look like.
(Al Gore could also be powering the studios, offices, and broadcast of his Current TV channel, with solar, wind, and hydrogen fuel cells, and be doing shows about and advocating for these technologies, as well as doing my 2 TV shows.)
Al is not saying or doing all that. He won't even say the word "hydrogen" much less advocate that everyone use it, or advocate for all those solutions, even though I have written him about them and sent him a copy of my book. In fact Al has stupidly advocated for nuclear energy instead of hydrogen.
Al also is not talking about everyone getting their water from the oceans that are rising all around every nation to fuel the zero emission hydrogen economy and to end hunger, thirst, and droughts, as I am.
For instance tonight Al pointed out that Texas is having fires from droughts, but didn't mention that there is unlimited water right there in the Gulf of Mexico, which we could be desalinating and using to end those droughts and put out the fires.
Same thing with the droughts in Somalia. No one ever points out that there is an ocean of water right next to them. Just look at the map, its right over there!
Al is right about the science and the facts, and he is right about trying to convince people and mobilize the world to take action to combat climate change, but all that is not enough.
As I say in my book, we not only have to point out the outrages, we have to say the next sentence and advocate for the solutions to the outrage, or we're just going to be perpetually outraged.
I'm also saying that it's how you implement that beautiful intention to do something that is the main issue, and it's the direction your working towards.
Al is right to say that we have to take action now, but he's not being specific or powerful enough in what we should do.
Once you're convinced and want to take action, do you only make baby-steps? and where are you baby-stepping to?
Do you just change your light bulb, that is still powered by coal? or do you go all the way and convert your entire house to 100% zero emission solar, wind, and hydrogen?
We can and we must go all the way and fully save the planet, and Al Gore could be talking and living more powerfully as he is trying to mobilize the world.
Please help me in my work to get the world to go all the way and Go Clear, and join me in making saving the planet a personal priority by taking The I'm On it! Pledge.
Also please buy my book and read my chapter about all the ways I've tried to make Al Gore more powerful and help me to convince him to implement my wisdom.
Because as I say in my book, "Al, the future survival of the planet and humanity depends on you speaking and acting more powerfully."
I've been researching Hydrogen for 12 years and I found out that you can burn hydrogen gas and it only has water vapor as it's emission. NASA has been burning liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen as rocket fuel to get into space, for over 50 years. The Sun has been fueled by hydrogen for 4.5 billion years. Hydrogen is also the most abundant element in the universe and on this planet, in water.
So all life in this planet has been dependent on hydrogen, and I think that we should follow the universe's example by using the abundant energy that is all around us.
(Also we can produce hydrogen cleanly with electricity from solar, wind, and water, without using coal, oil, natural gas, or nuclear.)
So I made the connection that we could be burning hydrogen to cook or melt stuff, and to generate electricity with zero emissions.
Then I found out that it's already happening. There are already stoves, fake fire places, kilns, and hot water heaters being converted to burn hydrogen.
In my book and in my chapter, Burning Hydrogen, Instead of Oil, Coal, or Natural Gas, I am advocating for converting all pottery and brick kilns, water heaters, heaters, and factories to burn hydrogen.
(Also hydrogen fuel cells can power electric pottery kilns and electric steel and aluminum smelters.)
Many of these ideas are starting to manifest and here are some videos I found on Youtube that either demonstrate that these ideas are already happening or prove that they could be done if we apply existing technology into different applications.
I found out the all cars can be converted to burn 100% hydrogen gas and they clean the air as they drive, by burning up existing pollution as it goes through the Hydrogen flame in the engine. Here are 2 videos of Roy McAlister the President of the American Hydrogen Association, who has been converting cars to hydrogen for 45 years, driving one.
Burning hydrogen can take recycling to the next level. Because all recycling centers could be powered by solar, wind, and hydrogen fuel cells. Also the trucks that picks up the stuff could be converted to burn hydrogen and be cleaning the air everywhere they go, so could the trucks that take the sorted recycling stuff to the factories, and the factories could be powered by solar, wind, and hydrogen. Factories could all be burning hydrogen to melt all the cans, glass, and plastic. And the trucks that take the new products to the store could be burning hydrogen and be cleaning the air everywhere they go. Thus making the entire recycling process 100% zero emission and energy independent.
I also found out that hydrogen and oxygen can be used in blow torches and welders and they are very hot and also zero emission. So we could be using these torches to replace other polluting torches, and to recycle and cut up things like building girders, train track, old cars, and re-bar, as well as artillery guns, tanks, and nuclear bombs, when we finally decide turn our swords into plow shears.
I also occurred to me that we could be converting all existing coal and natural gas power plants to burn hydrogen, by just changing the burners and the fuel, which would be easier than taking the time and money to build all new power plants, and it would instantly make all grids 100% zero emission.
If we woke up to this possibility we also would no long need to waste billions on dangerous nuclear power plants, that take years to build, are expensive, produce deadly waste that lasts for millions of years and can be turned into nuclear weapons, and that are vulnerable to terrorism and natural disaster, like earthquakes, like what just happened in Japan where an earthquake a tsunami as caused a terrible accident.
This video is of a guy starting up the hydrogen/oxygen flames of a very large artificial gem kiln, which shows that we could be doing the same in power plants.
In the video below a guy is boiling some water with a hydrogen and oxygen flame and stove, which is what coal, natural gas, and nuclear power plants do. They boil water and the steam turns turbines, which generate electricity, thus it proves that this idea is possible and safe.
We just have to make it a priority to convert all power plants, because a large percentage of the world's pollution comes from burning coal and natural gas still pollutes and is damaging to water aquifers with millions of gallons of toxic hydraulic fracturing fluids when they drill for it. Also when you convert cars and power plants to burn natural gas, its only a small step to convert them to burn hydrogen. If we converted all power plants to burn hydrogen all that pollution would be eliminated, not just reduced, and we could stop destroying mountains to mine coal, stop acid rain, stop destroying water aquifers, and the developing nations could develop without polluting.
Those are examples of my paying attention and thinking creatively about what's possible, and I'm glad to see that some of theses ideas are starting to manifest.
These videos also prove that you don't have to be an expert to make the connections that I'm making.
Additionally as you can see, none of these people were killed in hydrogen explosions and they prove that hydrogen can be used safely.
Please help me in spreading the word about these ideas and to implement them globally.
This page is a way to introduce people to my work and to my thought process and to the ideas that I'm seeing that can save the planet by ending hunger, thirst, and climate change and lead to a zero emission and energy independent planet.
I've added some videos to this site and I've been wanting to make a video for years, but I don't have a video camera to make one at the moment.
In my video I would generate some hydrogen with a solar panel like this one, which proves that we can get our hydrogen from solar, wind, and water, and that it can be produced without polluting.
Hydrogen generated this way, is also a way to make the inconsistent energy from solar and wind into a consistent and portable fuel. (I'm also going take it with me on my book tours and interviews.)
Then I would drink some fresh water that I condensed off the tail pipe of a hydrogen burning car or fuel cell car, which is their only emission, fresh water vapor. Which proves that hydrogen emission are safe. (Oil or Nuclear energy jockeys wouldn't dare drink their own Oil spill or deadly Nuclear waste.)
(By the way, I told President Obama to drink the water from the tail pipe of a hydrogen fuel cell in front of the nation in a live TV address and to share that fresh water with his wife and children to prove to the world that it was safe, as he announces his plan to mobilize the nation for convert to Solar, Wind and Hydrogen. I'm really mad that he didn't listen to me, and isn't taking that kind of bold action.)
Then I would boil some water with a hydrogen and oxygen flame and stove, like this one, but I would use a whistling tea kettle, because when the water boiled, the whistle sound could be, The Sound of the World Changing.
Because all coal and nuclear power plant do is boil water and the steam turns the turbine, so this proves that all power plants could be converted to burn Hydrogen and all grids could be zero emission and energy independent. We no long need Coal or Natural Gas, or to waste billions on Clean Coal or on dangerous nuclear power plants, that take years to build, are expensive, produce deadly waste that lasts for millions of years and can be turned into nuclear weapons, and that are vulnerable to terrorism and natural disaster, like earthquakes, like what happened in Japan where an earthquake a tsunami as caused a terrible accidents.
Then I'd be at a sea shore, and point over my shoulder and say into the camera,
"And there's an ocean of unlimited water and hydrogen, right over there."
Then have the camera on a crane and it would lift and pan and show the huge vastness of the ocean, which would prove that Hydrogen is abundant.
In addition, please see the other videos on my page, Burn Hydrogen, instead of Coal, Oil, or Natural Gas for more information about burning Hydrogen, including Roy McAlister driving a Hydrogen burning car. (I plan to buy a new car with the proceeds from my book and get it converted to burn Hydrogen and pull up to my book signings in it.)
Also there are now 15,000 desalination plants around the world, which could be expanded to millions. Then we could build water pipelines instead of oil pipelines from all the coasts of the world, which could end hunger and thirst by providing the everyone with unlimited fresh water, and fuel the hydrogen and water economy, no matter how the weather patterns change.
Some people don't like desalination plants because they're powered by diesel and can damage coastal estuaries, but I have solutions to that in my book. These plants could be powered cleanly with hydrogen, solar, wind, and tidal power. Some desalination plants are starting use Solar.
My other big idea is instead of dumping the extra salty water back into the local estuaries, we all put it into tankers and dump the extra salty water back into the oceans where ever we're having a problem with the desalination of the oceans from ice melting, thus Re-Salinating the Oceans.
Those are examples of my thought process and are based on my doing a small amount of research, paying attention, asking questions, and making connections.
After watching my video and reading my book, hopefully all the people of the world would finally have the Vision to see the potential that I am, which is that everyone is surrounded with unlimited water and thus unlimited zero emission Hydrogen fuel, as well as unlimited Solar, and Wind, and that we don't need to have wars for oil, air pollution, climate change, nuclear waste or accidents, poverty, hunger, or thirst.
I'm sharing the ideas that I'm seeing with the world because it is my greatest hope that everyone have the same revelations and Vision that I have, and that these Ideas Bombs will explode in everyone's hearts and minds and ripple out around the world and inspire everyone to mobilize to to survive and save this planet.
Please check out the rest of my site and my Table of Contents for more details on these ideas.
Then please buy my book, support my efforts, and help me to manifest these ideas.
My heart goes out to the people of Japan after the earthquake and tsunami.
I have been an advocate for the elimination of all nuclear energy power plants for many years.
I have a chapter in my book called, Universal Hydrogen, Solar, and Wind Instead of Universal Nuclear Bombs and End Nuclear Energy, where I point out that in 2007 Japan they nearly had a nuclear accident because a earthquake damaged a nuclear power plant there.
I've been saying in my book for years that people don't mobilize until things effect them personally. And now after this accident at least some people are finally waking up and realizing that nuclear energy is not safe and they are moving away from it. Germany has decided to stop using nuclear energy and Japan will shut down all their nuclear power plants this month, in May of 2012.
We don't need nuclear energy to save the planet, pollute or irradiate thousands of people and make land uninhabitable for years, or produce deadly waste that lasts for millions of years.
And I am proving it right now, on this website.
Please see my Burn Hydrogen, Instead of Coal, Oil, or Natural Gas page to see a video I found on YouTube of somebody boiling water with a hydrogen flame and stove. That's all nuclear power plants do, they boil water to generate steam which turn turbines which generate electricity.
Solar, Wind, Tidal, and Hydrogen are all energy abundant and zero emission. If we made it a priority to use them the entire planet could be zero emission and energy independent. I'm talking about every building being powered individually by Solar, Wind, and Hydrogen fuel cells. Because that is real energy independence, and because then we wouldn't need large scale power plants of any kind; coal, natural gas, or dam rivers for hydroelectric power, or need nuclear reactors and their accidents and waste, and we all could tear down every grid on earth and be free and Clear of all power companies. But until that happens all power grids could become zero emission by converting power plants to burn Hydrogen.
As I say in my book, Japan is surrounded by oceans of water, and thus unlimited Hydrogen and they could using the extra water of the rising oceans as a weapon against climate change by generating their own fuel, and powering their nation safely, without having nuclear accidents.
So could every nation on Earth.
In my book I also have a chapter call, My Invitation to Be More Powerful to Helen Caldicott, who is a hero of mine because she has been fighting nuclear weapons and energy for over 30 years. In it I suggest that Helen challenge the next nuclear waste jockey she debates to drink his own nuclear waste on live TV while she drinks the fresh water off the tail pipe of a hydrogen fuel cell. Because I think that people don't realize the consequences of their policies until it happens to them and because it would be a powerful demonstration of the difference between deadly nuclear waste and zero emission Hydrogen.
Helen's book, Nuclear Power is not the Answer, has much more detailed information about why nuclear technology is terrible for the planet and humanity.
Please join me, Helen Caldicott, and other activists, in working to end the use of all nuclear energy and nuclear weapons.
Then also advocate for the full and global conversion to Solar, Wind, and Hydrogen and work towards a zero emission planet and the energy independence of every nation.
The survival of this Planet and all of Humanity depends on it.
It's morally irresponsible to not mobilize to save the planet and the future of humanity, but it's also fiscally irresponsible not to spend whatever it takes to save it, because we will save trillions of dollars and revive every economy in doing so.
The real solution to our current economic problems is the same solution to our environmental problems.
If we mobilized like World War II to save the planet, by spending whatever it takes to create millions of jobs building zero emission technologies, (hydrogen, solar, wind, tidal, and geothermal) selling, installing, and maintaining them on every home, building, car, truck, boat, train and plane, in every nation... then everyone would have a job and more money, then they could spend more in the economy, which helps other businesses. Also every home and business would save thousands of dollars a year, every year, for forever, because they would no longer have to pay for heat, electricity, or fuel. Therefore every nation could be lifted out of poverty, and be thriving instead of scrounging.
After this latest economic crisis every nation and government are cutting their budgets and spending less, because they think that they need to balance their budgets, but that is unnecessary.
It is fiscally irresponsible to not spend whatever we need to in order to convert to a zero emission and energy independent planet, because it's the same amount of money that we're already spending and doing so would eventually save trillions.
Every nation spends billions on electricity, heating fuel, and on car fuel, every year, and we have spent trillions on wars for oil. If we spent some of that money up front, we and all future generations would never have to pay for energy again, which would save trillions over time. Also no one would be held hostage to other nations or energy corporations ever again.
It is unnecessary for governments to lay off state employees or to bust Unions like they did in Wisconsin, or drastically cut services in order to save money. Because they would save billions by converting every State owned building and vehicle, and get out the crisis in the first place by creating jobs that will save the planet that generate taxes and thus be healing their economies and communities, instead of tearing them apart.
Health care costs would also go down if hospitals, doctors offices, and clinics, as well as insurance offices and government agencies, didn't have to pay for heat and electricity.
There would also be more tax dollars available if the 18,000 people who die from air pollution every year, just in the US, lived and had a job, and paid taxes instead of being dead and paying no taxes.
Also no one can get rich if they're dead, or if their customers are dead, and what is the point of continuing to get rich, or worrying about debt, if there's no future?
The World War II generation did not say that saving the world, was "too expensive." They went into debt, mobilized, and did whatever it took to save it, which paid off because they survived, we got out of the depression, and we all have thrived economically.
We have spent $12 trillion nuclear weapons that can kill the entire planet in 30 minutes, and trillions more on weapons and other wars, because we thought it was in our true self defense.
If we are not willing to spend trillions to survive, the way we have spent trillions on wars, to kill each other, and on nuclear weapons that can kill all life on this planet... then we deserve to become extinct.
We have the money and all the technologies that can save us already exists, but somehow we just do not have the moral and political will to mobilize to use them to save ourselves.
We can and we must have the courage to Be Great Again and mobilize everyone to save this planet by ending climate change, hunger, thirst, and poverty and insure the future survival of humanity, and spend whatever it takes to do it.
Whatever debt we have to go into to do it, as well as all debt, would be paid off quickly by the stronger economy that will be created, and by our surviving to be able to pay it.
Also our children will actually get something for the debt we are putting them. They will get clean air, never have to pay for energy ever again, they won't have to fight in wars for Oil, and they will have a future to look forward to.
I don't think that our children will say all that was, "too expensive."
Every time there is a ice storm or a blizzard we have blackouts because the ice builds up on power lines and they break or short out, or tree branches fall on them, which happened in the US in this Blizzard in Feb 2011 or the 2003 blackout that covered 6 States and part of Canada which happened because one tree branch fell on one power line.
Same thing with hurricanes. Their winds blow down power lines and create mass blackouts, which happened with Hurricanes Katrina, Irene, and Sandy.
This is because we are all tethered by grids.
Even if we spend billions of making grids "Smart" and more efficient, power plants will still be killing us and the planet by burning coal, mountains and rivers will be destroyed by coal mining, coal miners will still die from black lung disease, and we will still have huge lagoons of coal ash,and we will still have blackouts because storms are getting worst from climate change.
Ideally I think we should tear down every grid on this planet because they generate most of the pollution from burning coal and natural gas and they cause blackouts. If everyone were truly energy independent with solar, wind, and a hydrogen fuel cell generator, we wouldn't need the grid system.
But I realize that we're addicted to grids and it's going to take time to build and install enough equipment to convert every building on the planet, and therefore I propose converting coal fired power plants to burn hydrogen which would quickly to make them all zero emission because doing so would eliminate the root cause of climate change which is pollution and not efficiency, while we are converting homes and businesses to true energy independence.
There also wouldn’t be any more deaths from carbon monoxide poisoning from people using gasoline generators in blackouts, because everyone could be using zero emission hydrogen fuel cells generators instead and not having a blackout in the first place and not be polluting themselves or the planet.
Yes, there is no solar or wind in a blizzard and too much wind and no solar in a Hurricane. Also solar panels and wind turbines may get blown way in severe storms. That’s why I'm advocating for the triple back-up of solar, wind, and hydrogen. Because in the sunny and windy days of summer, you can generate hydrogen from that extra solar and wind by electrifying water. Then store it in tanks, and use that hydrogen later in winter or during a disaster as fuel in your fuel cell for electrical power and in your heater and stove for heat and cooking. Your car can also be converted to burn hydrogen and you can be generating your own car fuel as well.
Also if we made it a national and international priority to have universal solar, wind, and hydrogen, it would revive every economy by putting millions of people back to work building, installing, selling, and maintaining it all. Also everyone would stop being held hostage to energy corporations and fluctuating prices, because everyone and all future generations would never have to pay for heating, electricity, or car fuel ever again.
It has been possible to live this way for decades already. The hydrogen fuel cell was invented in 1839, 174 years ago! Please educate yourself and your local and federal governments about these alternatives and work to implement them, because if you did it would save lives, prevent blackouts, save every economy, and it would save the planet by eliminating pollution.
You can read more details about my ideas on this issue in my book, Ideas to Save the Planet.

To celebrate Earth Day I had my first book signing on April 24, 2010 at the Narrow Gauge Newsstand in Alamosa, Colorado. It went well and many of my friends and customers showed up.
It is my first video and I realize that it's not that polished, that I am not very photogenic, and that I'm very soft spoken, but I never said I was an expert, or a great public speaker. I just said I am seeing some ideas that can save the planet.
The point of my work is that you don't have to be an expert to educate yourself about what's possible, to see that we're not using existing technologies that could save it, or to take action to save the planet.
It's going take more than a handful of experts. Billions of regular people like me and you are going to have to take action to save it, which I am doing in my book and in this video.
Thanks for listening and for helping me to save the planet by helping me to get the word out about my book and by acting on the ideas presented in it.
This is the text from my interview with Kevin S. Kantola of Hydrogen Cars Now
Todd Norman Has Ideas to Save the Planet Including a Role for Hydrogen
Posted on March 22nd, 2010 by admin
Recently, I had the pleasure of communicating with Todd Norman, author of Ideas to Save the Planet. I put a few questions to him about the role of hydrogen. Here is the question and answer session:
HydroKevin (HK): What is your vision of a global conversion to a hydrogen economy especially concerning the building of an H2 transportation system?
Todd Norman (TN): My vision for global conversion to hydrogen is similar to Roy McAlister’s. I’m advocating for his idea of converting existing cars to burn Hydrogen, because converted cars clean the pollution that is already in the air as you drive. I still like fuel cell cars, but I just agree that we should use what we have and not only stop polluting, but also clean up the old pollution. My ideas are for the current emission testing places to be converted to hydrogen conversion centers, as well as for auto mechanics to be trained to convert cars, and for all trains, planes, and boats to be converted as well.
HK: How do you envision using hydrogen, solar and wind energy to complement one another to their full capacity?
TN: I see it as a triple back-up. If we all had solar panels, wind generators, a back-up hydrogen fuel cell, and batteries in our homes, we would all be energy independent, energy abundant, and zero emission. If it’s not sunny, it’s usually windy, and it can be windy at night, and in the winter when it’s neither, you can use the fuel cell. We can generate our own hydrogen with solar, wind, and water and therefore the consistent hydrogen fuel solves the inconsistency of solar and wind.
HK: What do you mean by hydrogen fuel cell cars are the real deal hybrids?
TN: Gasoline hybrids still pollute. We need to stop being satisfied with Going Green and only “reducing emissions” and we have to go all the way and Go Clear, to 100% zero emissions. As far as I know, fuel cell cars are electric cars with a hydrogen fuel cell to supply electricity as you drive, and therefore they have a longer range. They are the real deal hybrids because if you generated your own hydrogen at home with solar, wind, and water you could be saving thousands per year on fuel, travel further, and fully save the planet by being 100% zero emission and energy independent.
HK: Why would people be outraged if they were more educated about hydrogen?
TN: They would be outraged as I am if they knew that the fuel cell was 172 years old and getting hydrogen from water with electricity is 206 years old. Because they would know that we wouldn’t have to have wars for oil, or have climate change, or our children getting asthma from coal emission, or pay high energy prices. They would know that all that is totally unnecessary, because every nation is near oceans of water and therefore everyone could have unlimited hydrogen, and be developing and living well without polluting.
And if they had solar, wind and a fuel cell, and an electrolyzer they could be generating their own gas for their car and heating, and never have to pay for electricity, heat, or car fuel ever again, and thus save thousands per year. I'm trying to convince people that living this way is the true defense of every nation to save the planet and it’s also the true defense of everyone’s budget. Also you would save more money generating your own car fuel with your extra solar and wind, and water off your rain gutter, than the small amount of money you get back from the power company for it. I think that people would be outraged because all that is not already happening, and could be happening, and they would act on that outrage, demand it, and start living this way.
HK: How can people use hydrogen now to make a difference?
TN: They can get their car converted to burn hydrogen or they can put in their order for a fuel cell car, then buy them, then drive them. They can demand universal hydrogen, solar, and wind from their governments. They can educate themselves about it, make using it a priority, and then use it. It has taken the Green movement 40 years to become main stream, and we are still only changing light bulbs and using coal and oil slightly more efficiently. We can’t wait another 40 years to Go Clear. We have to do it now. Hydrogen is the solution to many of the world’s problems and is the most abundant energy source on this planet. We all have to open our minds to hydrogen, solar, and wind, be given the means to access the abundant energy that is all around us, and then pick up those tools that are lying at our feet and use them.
Many thanks to Mr. Norman for his time and perspective on the role of hydrogen in saving the planet.
I’m challenging all the people of the world to take the I’m On It! Pledge.
It’s a pledge, not to me, but to yourself, to your God or Goddess, or your religion, whatever oath is sacred to you, to act on your spirituality.
Swear on the air your mother and your children breath and the water they drink.
Swear on the lives of your grand children.
Act from your love and compassion, as well as from your outrage.
Make a deal with the Goddess instead of a deal with the Devil.
Choose to become a Hero for the Planet and to answer Mother Earth’s call to take action to save the planet and all of humanity.
Make saving the planet a Personal Priority and Moral Imperative, then say to yourself and to the world:
Yes, I’ll Save the Planet!
I choose to care about humanity and the earth. I pledge to work to solve the world’s problems, to clean our air and water, to live Clearly, abundantly, and sustainably powered by solar, wind, and hydrogen, and to protect the natural environment. I choose to live out my spirituality and environmentalism by taking action to end hunger, thirst, poverty, and climate change because doing so is in my true self interest and the true defense of my family and my nation. I, ___________________, pledge to take action in any way I can to save this planet and all of humanity.
My name is Todd A. Norman, the author of the book, Ideas to Save the Planet. Congratulations on your election victory. I have been writing what I call Invitations to Be More Powerful for the past 11 years to famous people who I think can make a larger impact, if they only knew what I know. They are helpful letters of suggestion that are designed to effect positive change in the world and to make the receiver more effective in what they’re doing, and are one of my ideas to save the planet.
This is my second Invitation to Be More Powerful to you. You may recall that I wrote you in 5/14/08 to give you some suggestions to make you and your campaign more powerful so you could win the nomination and lead the nation to true energy independence. I’m sorry to say that I never heard back from you or your campaign and that you never acted on them.
I am following Tavis Smiley’s advice of “holding him Accountable” by writing again to hold you accountable and to help you and our nation to save our environment and our economy, and to help you to be more successful in your work, as well as to be worthy of your Nobel Prize and of my vote.
Thank you for calling for ideas and being open to them and I am here to answer that call. I recently heard you say that you honor Persistence. Please honor my persistence, by hearing my wisdom and acting on it. I have several suggestions for you, but the main points are regarding health care, economic growth, energy, and saving the planet from climate change.
Firstly, you cannot lead from the center. You have to lead from the front. Please stop speaking so eloquently but then acting so spinelessly. A lot of the criticisms that I’ve hear about your Administration is that you are not using the power of the Presidency powerfully enough and you are making too many compromises. Please choose to be more powerful in the way you implement your vision for Change in America. You can do so by acting on my ideas and by being more specific about your ideas when you propose them. Several times during the past 11 months you have stumbled because you were not specific enough. For instance the stock market went down in February after Secretary Geithner came out with his plan for the economic recovery. Why? Because they all said that his wasn’t specific enough.
I delayed finishing the second edition of my book and this letter because I wanted to add my reaction to your address to Congress on 9/9/09. I thought it was a good speech but again it could have been more powerful. One of the reasons that I voted for you, in addition to your vote against the Iraq war, was because of your interest in getting universal health care. I did not vote for you to get a government option. You are wrong about single payer, you have caved on this issue, and your popularity has gone down because of it, because the majority of Americans want a single payer health care system.
You also are now only talking about Health Coverage and not Health Care, which are not the same thing. Health care is between us and doctors and everyone just get whatever care they need when they need it.
You also only mentioned once in your speech that people die from a lack of heath care. It sounded like an afterthought and it was a missed opportunity. You didn’t turn and look at the Republicans and say that 18,000 – 44,000 Americans Die, every year from a lack of care and that over 1,000,000 have died since 1948 when they and the AMA defeated universal health care. You also didn’t say that the insurance industry is responsible for all those deaths be denying people coverage and making it too expensive for them to afford coverage and care. Also implement Health Care reform now and not in 2013, because 44,000 people a year are going to die from a lack of care over the next 4 years, which is 176,000 people.
You did mention that over half of the bankruptcies in this country were due to people’s inability to pay for the health care that they already have. But you did not say that the Insurance companies are actively pursuing bankruptcy legal action of hundreds of thousands of Americans every year.
If you have spent more time on that, instead of just barely mentioning it, it would have powerfully countered the Republicans opposition to your health care legislation and would have shamed them in front of the nation for their opposition to even the idea of ensuring that people have health care.
You have said repeatedly that having businesses pay for health care for their employees is bad for business and makes us less competitive and loses jobs. So why are you now for demanding the employers must cover all employees? Or that everyone MUST, by law, buy coverage from insurance companies? You should be putting them out of business for killing Americans instead of subsidizing them. You say that if people shop around for coverage it would lower the cost of care. I am one of those unemployed people who are very poor. I can’t afford insurance and haven’t had any for the past five years and I don’t have the money to shop for coverage. I would rather have single payer government run health care, from the taxes that I already pay, rather than subsidize insurance companies, and pay additional premiums.
You wouldn’t mandate that we all give Osama Bin Ladin money. Please don’t mandate that I buy insurance from insurance companies so they can continue to terrorize me with my own money. You should be dismantling these corporate terrorists and fighting them and other corporate powers, like Monsanto, like Theodore Roosevelt did, by enforcing the Sherman anti-trust laws.
Also you could have more powerfully rebutted all the arguments against your efforts this summer. You could have said that we already have Health Care Rationing, it’s called Managed Care! from insurance companies, which was invented by Kaiser Permante, the Republicans, and President Nixon.
Thank you for fighting back against Fox News, but please now focus on inspiring the rest of 75% of the nation and stop focusing on the very small percentage of Conservatives in the Republican Party.
Thank you for your efforts to eliminate all nuclear weapons from this planet. But please now also add ending all Nuclear Energy as well. Please Fire your Energy Secretary Chu for advocating for nuclear energy, and hire Roy McAlister, the President of the American Hydrogen Association. He has been working on hydrogen and has been converting gasoline car engines to burn hydrogen for 45 years. Those cars clean the air as they drive, and he has proven that you can generate hydrogen from solar and wind electricity and water. Please honor his efforts and persistence and hire him to help you to lead the nation to true energy independence, national security, and economic prosperity.
I am joining Roy and others in advocating for a world powered by solar, wind, and hydrogen, which are all zero emission and energy abundant. If we all had the means to access the energy that is all around us, we could stop scrounging and talking about energy conservation, waging wars for oil, or worrying about our carbon footprints, while fully saving the economy, the planet, and our children.
I was very disappointed that you canceled all funding for hydrogen. The hydrogen fuel cell was invented 170 years ago and we have already waited too long to use them in our homes and cars. NASA has been using them for 50 years and has done great things with them like powering their computers while going to the Moon and in the Space Shuttle. They use them because hydrogen fuel cells only have water vapor as its emission.
Thank you for recognizing our energy challenges and for wanting to fix them, but now go all the way in how you implement that intention. Go 100% Clear instead of taking baby steps by Going Green.
Here are some of my rebuttals to your Energy Plan Overview.
You have the goal of “Making the U.S. a Leader on Climate Change” but the way you are implementing that intention is terribly hesitant and isn’t going to get us there. You want to “Ensure that 10 percent of our electricity comes from renewable sources by 2012, and 25% by 2025” which is a spineless goal, because you could be saying 100% by 2012.
Stop, “implementing an economy-wide cap-and-trade program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 80 percent by 2050.” NASA uses hydrogen fuel cells because they couldn’t afford to only “reduce emissions” in their space capsules, by 20%. They have to fully “eliminate all emission” 100% in order to survive in space. The World War II generation was not satisfied with defeating Hitler by 80% over 50 years, They did 100% of Hitler, Italy, and Japan in 3.5 years. You should leading the Nation to fight climate change with the same intensity as if you were going to war, and be massively funding hydrogen, solar, and wind technologies like we funded war technologies in WW II.
We are not even remotely as great as our greatest generation if we cannot mobilize the nation to build and install solar panels, wind generators, and hydrogen fuel cells in every home, business, and car in 4 years. We need to do this as the defense of the nation and of the economy because it would generate millions of jobs and a stronger economy than just the small amount of jobs that you are creating by Going Green or by fixing our infrastructure. We need to fix bridges, but those jobs are seasonal and temporary. If we were truly leading the world by becoming a zero emission and energy independent nation as well as by being the world’s largest Clear technology dealer instead of the world’s largest arms dealer, we would have lots more permanent year round jobs and they would last for 40-50 years, and turn around the current bad unemployment numbers. You can get started over this winter and don’t have to wait until summer.
You want to “Help create five Million new jobs by strategically investing $150 Billion over the next ten years to catalyze private efforts to build a clean energy future.” That is a good start, but we need a lot more money to implement universal hydrogen, solar, and wind. You and Bush gave $700 Billion to banks in only one year and even though no bankers died and 18,000 Americans die every year from air pollution. We also spent $3 Trillion on Iraq, and $12 Trillion on Nuclear weapons. People in WW II didn’t say “it’s too expensive.” They just did what it took to survive. We need to have a serious commitment to saving our children, our planet, and our economy, and spend whatever it takes and mobilize the nation like we did during WW II to do it, and do it now, not over ten years.
Do so by mobilizing the entire US government and private companies to build, install, and maintain all these Clear technologies. You want to “Provide Short-term Relief to American Families” with your stimulus spending. But if you mobilized the nation to implement universal hydrogen, solar, and wind, those manufacturing, selling, and maintaining jobs would be long term relief, because we are not only going to convert every car, home, and business in America, but also to help to convert the entire planet by become the world biggest Clear technology exporter, which would also fix our foreign trade problem.
Businesses will be more prosperous, and save money that they no longer have to spend on electricity, heat, and fuel, and doing so will be great for their marketing. They will be able to say to their customers, ‘Buy from us, we’re doing our part and we’re not polluting your children.’ Also encourage them to get rich saving the planet and defending the nation, instead of by killing it, or other people with weapons of war. Also pollution at shipping ports from diesels trucks would go away if all those trucks were converted to burn hydrogen. In addition to putting manufacturing plants in larger cities, also put them in small towns such as in coal, fishing, timber towns, so they can have safe, year round, saving the planet jobs, instead of being unemployed or killing the planet or having to have a prison or casino just to have jobs.
Also thank you for calling on us to volunteer more and to help the nation, now please expand that to mobilize the nation to implement Universal hydrogen, solar, and wind. Revive the Civilian Conservation Corps, expand AmeriCorps, and even call out the National Guard to install solar panels, wind generators, and residential Hydrogen fuel cells, in-on every home, business, and government building. I also give you permission to steal my idea and make, I’m On it!, a national slogan. Your new posters and add campaigns could say, ‘Uncle Sam wants you - to get on it!’ or “I’m doing my part – I’m On it!” (Also please read my chapters on, Take the I’m On It! Pledge, and Honoring Everyday Heroship.)
I know that you intend to modernize our energy grid system, but stop focusing on the grid and energy companies, because all the money you put into to upgrading the grid is just going to get destroyed in the next hurricane Katrina, earthquakes, or by ice storms. Focus on giving the American people a bailout by giving every home and business solar panels, small residential Wind generators, and residential hydrogen fuel cells, hydrogen gas tanks, and Hydrogen gas stations in their garages. If you did everyone would not have blackouts, it would remove power lines as a target for terrorism, and everyone would not have to pay for electricity or heat ever again. Also if you acted on Roy’s wisdom and converted every car and truck in America to burn hydrogen, and gave them electrolyzers, they could generate their own gas at home with solar, wind, and water and fill up their cars every morning. Thus they also would not have to pay for gas, and save thousands of dollars a year. Which would not only save the planet, but would also save the economy because in addition to people having more money from all these new jobs building, selling, and maintaining all that technology, and they would have thousands of extra dollars a year to spend that they are no longer spending on electricity, heat, and car fuel.
You are totally wrong about Clean Coal and you should stop advocating for it and funding it. Thank you for wanting to “Deploy the Cheapest, Cleanest, Fastest Energy Source – Energy Efficiency.” But please stop talking about using oil and coal slightly more efficiently. We don’t need coal anyway. Hydrogen, solar, and wind are energy abundant. When you modernize the power grid, consider converting coal fired power plants to burn hydrogen. This would be quicker and easier than building all new power plants, and if would immediately make the entire grid zero emission and energy independent, as well as smarter and more reliable.
Also stop allowing mountain top removal during coal mining. Stop sequestering carbon dioxide gas in the ground, after we burn Coal, because it’s a total waste of money, because that gas is just going to get released by earthquakes. We need to stop burning carbon and sequester it – before we burn it – and use that carbon to make carbon fibers and make stuff out of it instead of burning it. Carbon fibers are 10x stronger than steel and 4x lighter than aluminum. We could be leading the world in this technology, using them to build the Wind generators and Hydrogen gas tanks, and you could be using it in your efforts to fix our infrastructure and building new bridges, because they can be use to make girders that don’t rust, thus your efforts would be stronger, last longer, and be safer.
Also lead the nation by example and start by converting the White House to solar, wind, and hydrogen, as well as all Federal buildings, cars, Post offices and Congress. Convert the Washington DC Power Plant to burn Hydrogen then work to make every State and Local government zero emission and energy independent because as we learned in hurricane Katrina, we need the government to be reliably powered and up and running in emergencies, as well as to not pollute their communities with their operations.
You want to “Put 1 million Plug-In Hybrid cars - cars that can get up to 150 miles per gallon on the road by 2015, cars that we will work to make sure are built here in America.” and “Create a New $7,000 Tax Credit for Purchasing Advanced Vehicles.” “Establish a National Low Carbon Fuel Standard.” All that is great, but instead of working to still be efficiently using gasoline that is polluting our children you could be advocating for Hydrogen cars and converting cars to Hydrogen and using your influence with Ford and GM to make Hydrogen cars, because they all have hydrogen fuel cell prototypes. Roy McAlister and his college students have converting gasoline engines to burn hydrogen for 45 years, and those cars clean the air as they drive. So GM and Ford with their billions should be able to do it. Also set up conversion places like emission testing facilities and encourage all car dealerships to convert cars, so all the 300 million cars on the road can be cleaning up the air while we wait to get new fuel cell cars. Also work to manifest Hydrogen gas stations like they did in California. You could have done that instead of destroying cars in Cash for Clunkers, which was a temporary solution. Those old cars didn’t have to be destroyed, because they could have been converted to Hydrogen, for less money ($2,000), and be cleaning the air instead of filling up landfills.
You want to “Eliminate Our Current Imports from the Middle East and Venezuela within 10 Years” but that will do nothing to fight Climate Change because we will still be using Oil, just domestic oil, instead of foreign oil.
You want to “Promote the Responsible Domestic Production of oil and natural gas.” But all that is unnecessary if you listened to me. We could be definitely striking hydrogen in the 3 oceans of water that are all around us and have unlimited water no matter what Climate Change does to our weather pattern, by desalinating seawater. We could be generating hydrogen by electrifying fresh water with solar, wind, and tidal power, and have a consistent, zero emission, and unlimited fuel for power plants, cars, and homes.
You want to “Prioritize the Construction of the Alaska Natural Gas Pipeline.” But that would be unnecessary if we made desalination a priority instead because we could become truly energy independent by getting unlimited zero emission fuel from the oceans that are all around us. The US should also become the world leader in desalination and water pipelines. Please also stop the privatization of water. Doing so would end hunger, thirst, and poverty on this planet because every nation would have water for farming, sanitation, and fuel.
We do need to continue to do all the little “Green” things like “Weatherize One million Homes Annually.” But we also need to Go all the way, and Go Clear, directly to zero emission and 100% energy independence. Stop talking about “Reducing emissions” and starting saying “eliminating all emissions” and becoming “Clean” not just “Cleaner.” I’m talking about you adding a 6th Star to the LEED Certification program and it should be a Clear Star. You get one if you are totally 100% Clear - zero emission and energy independent. That star should be made out of Clear veggie plastic. You also should expand that program to include factories.
We should be willing to go into debt for universal hydrogen fuel cells, solar panels, and wind generators, because we need to take action to save the planet by discontinuing to pollute the atmosphere, and to ensure the future generations have a planet to live on at all. Also because the next generation, who has to pay for that debt, will actually get something for their money. They will get solar panels, wind generators, and fuel cells, clean air, and no more wars for oil. Also all the millions of jobs, new business, and manufacturing companies will generate more taxes, and the stronger economy would help to pay off whatever amount of debt we have to go into. This stronger economy will also pay for Universal College, universal health care, and the baby boom entitlements programs.
Stop supporting bio fuels because they still pollute and the only reason that politicians support it is because they have farmers in their districts. Farmers can be generating hydrogen, with solar, wind, and water, to operate their farms, and to sell hydrogen to local gas stations and power plants, while still growing food. Fund them being able to do so. Also support veggie plastics. Mandate that all plastic bags; trash bags, food containers, and packaging, and all manufactures like Glad convert to veggie plastics that degrade and compost, because plastic trash is a governmental problem because they have to pay for the trash and the health care of people who get sick from petroleum plastics.
Lead by example. You are the leader of the Democratic Party. You could be implementing my idea for a zero emission and energy independent (ZEEI) Democratic Party. You could run your reelection campaign on hydrogen, solar, and wind and save the 2010 mid-term elections by mobilizing the nation and by encouraging all Democratic candidates to run ZEEI campaigns. Instead of spending hundreds of millions on stupid TV commercial, spend it on American made Clear technologies and American jobs. Do it now before it’s too late. If you do you will win over voters and totally win every election, and instead of losing seats you would gain seats, and thus be able to implement your agenda.
You can start this mobilization of the nation by making a powerful and dramatic demonstration in a address the nation on prime time TV. Show us a hydrogen fuel cell on the desk in the Oval Office and condense the water vapor off its tail pipe and drink the water in front of everyone. Then share that glass of new water with your daughters and your wife. Then tell the nation that this energy is safe and abundant and is something that we all can be proud of. You wouldn’t feed your children nuclear waste, or coal and oil emissions, and we should stop doing so. Give us all a tour of the White House that has now been converted to hydrogen, solar, and wind. Then announce your plan to convert the rest of the nation.
Additionally, thank you for demonstrating that this is a nation that is founded on the Rule of Law and for prosecuting terrorist suspects in US courts and in US jails. But you are wrong about looking forward instead of looking back in regards to persecuting members of the Bush administration. Many of them committed multiple crimes against this nation and they deserve to go to jail for their crimes. This attitude of being fearful of even the appearance of being partisan is preventing you from acting properly. All of their crimes were due to the fact there were people in the Nixon administration, such as Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld, who were not persecuted, and they all came back to do all these recent crimes. Please do your job and defend the nation and the Constitution and do not let them get away it.
Start saying “Citizens” instead of saying “Tax Payers” because it’s divisive. Poor people are citizens too and we should stop making it all about money.
Also stop businesses from abusing credit information. People shouldn’t have to be subjected to a credit check in order to get a job. How can you get good credit if you can’t get a job?
I still have faith in you. I have the audacity to hope that you will choose to be even greater than FDR and Kennedy, and an even more powerful environmentalist than Al Gore. Please make the most of your time in office. Turn around our economy, put 100’s of millions of people to work, and turn the biggest polluting nation into a 100% zero emission and energy independent nation.
Then work to manifest a zero emission planet. Encourage every nation to make this conversion and send Clear technologies as foreign aid and work in the UN. Our problems with Iran and Korea involve nuclear energy. You could solve them by giving them hydrogen and desalination technologies instead, so they don’t need to use nuclear energy, which they can use to make nuclear weapons. You could also demonstrate that developing nations don’t have to pollute in order to develop, by giving them the tools they need to access the abundant energy that is all around them. The EU could be energy independent and not be held hostage to Russia for its heating gas, because it could be getting its gas, Hydrogen, from the oceans that are all around them. So could China, India, Africa, and every nation, which would stop the need for wars for oil. I’m going to tell the world about these ideas because I think that every nation needs to make these changes. You can either choose to lead the world into a zero emission future or you can follow them. You can either buy hydrogen, solar, and wind from other nations or build it and sell it to them and benefit economically from doing so. You can either Lead and win politically or lose and get slapped around for your inaction.
Go all the way and lead the nation and the world into a zero emission future, because it is the true defense of the nation, economically, politically, and environmentally, and the true defense of your children. This generation can become even greater than our greatest generation, if you only lead us to save the world, again. Please answer My Call to Greatness, and take my I’m On It! Pledge, then live it, and make it the slogan of the nation. Wear an, I’m on it! button and encourage the rest of us to do the same.
Lastly on a personal note, I’ve been very poor during the last five years, have even been homeless while writing my book, and am currently unemployed. I’d like to go to work for your administration and help you to implement these ideas. Maybe I can be a consultant as your Idea-man, or a assistant to Roy McAlister in the Energy Department when you hire him. Additionally I’ve planned to build a zero emission, energy independent, and disaster resistant home for 9 years. I’m selling my book to raise the money I need to build it so I can stop being homeless, finally live out my right livelihood of being a full-time Potter and Writer, as well as to save the planet. This letter has only a few of my ideas. Please read the copy of the second edition my book I’m going to send you and consider helping me get the word out about it to help me be successful in my efforts, in return for my helping you to be successful in yours. Maybe you can help me get on Oprah, and appear with me when I educate her and the nation’s women about these ideas, and when we convert her show, offices, and cars, as well as Al Gore’s car on national TV. I also have ideas for 2 TV shows, Who Wants to Live Sustainably?, and Modernize My Town, which will convert entire homes, cars, and small towns to hydrogen, solar, and wind. I also have an idea for a movie called, A Zero Emission Energy Independent Planet, which is a positive depiction of the future were all of our collective problems are fixed and shows the world how we can get there. Will Smith could play you in it as the President who’s bold vision inspired us to manifest such a future. I could use some miracle connections to an agent and to people in Hollywood to get these projects manifested. Thank you for helping to do what I can to Get On saving our nation and the planet.
I’ve answered your call for ideas. Thank you for taking the time to listen to me and for acting on my wisdom. Please say Yes to these ideas and suggestions, the way that I’ve said Yes to you with my vote. They are only offered to you to help you and our nation to succeed and to survive. Please reply to this mail and let’s make it happen, you and me.
The future of our nation and the planet depends on it.

Ideas to Save the Planet
I think that it's great that so many people are waking up to our global environmental problems and I honor and respect their intention to take action, but I just think that Going Green doesn't go far enough. So I am challenging the Green Revolution to be more powerful in their goals and their language, because its how we implement that intention that is at the heart of the solving our collective problems.
I'm inviting the world to go all the way with their beautiful intention to save the planet and to Go Clear!
(By the way, my version of Going Clear has nothing to do with Scientology. I came up with it independently before I even heard of their version.)
To me Going Clear means Clear Intentions and wanting to fully save the planet, Earth Loving, instead of just being slightly more friendly to it.
Clear Speech. We all need to be more precise in our language because most of the time people who talk about Going Green only talk about "reducing" emissions instead of "eliminating" them, our becoming "cleaner" not clean, "Greener" and not even being fully Green, and only our being free from foreign oil, instead of eliminating the use of oil completely. Say, zero emissions, instead of, carbon neutral, because carbon neutral can mean a thousand different things. As in, 'I am 100% zero emission and I am not polluting the planet or my children,' instead of saying, 'Well, I still use coal, but I'm carbon neutral because I planted some trees and bought some carbon credits.'
And powering our lives with 100% zero emission, 100% energy independence, by converting our cars to burn hydrogen or driving hydrogen fuel cell cars, and power our homes with solar panels, wind generators, and residential hydrogen fuel cells, and converting factories and coal fired power plants to burn hydrogen, which leads to 100% Clear skies.
All of which is possible today and has been for decades already. The hydrogen fuel cell was invented in 1839, 174 years ago. Getting hydrogen from water with electricity, was invented in 1805, 208 years ago. Gasoline car engines were converted to burn hydrogen in 1920, 93 years ago.
We're just not making it a priority to use existing technologies in our daily lives, because most people don't know about them, and because of the current priorities of the environmental community.
Green people's focus on energy conservation is currently killing the planet.
Yes energy corporations are getting rich off of polluting resources and keeping us from stopping pollution. But most Green people who want to stop it have been putting their time, brains, and money on finding ways to continue to pollute ourselves with coal and oil, instead of putting all their efforts into going directly to zero pollution resources.
They have been playing the Crack-man's game. The Crack-man says, 'Oh don't quit Crack! Just use your Crack, more efficiently. Just conserve your Crack.'
I'm saying that we need to get off the Crack that is killing us (oil, coal, natural gas, nuclear) 100%, right now!
Going Green's baby stepping is killing the planet because Green people think they are doing something and going in the right direction, when they are really are not, and they are convincing other people to follow them. So other people are putting their time, brains, and money into mitigating the problem instead of fully solving it.
Energy conservation is not working and will never work! 43 years later we are still having climate change. Also by focusing on efficiently using oil and coal, we will always use coal and oil. Obama's plan of 80% by 2050 is not 80% zero and 20% polluting resources. He and other people are talking about domestic instead of foreign oil, coal, nuclear, and natural gas. So even after waiting 80 years after Earth Day we will still be polluting ourselves! And continue to have wars for oil, oil spills, mountain top removal for coal, fracking to get natural gas, and nuclear accidents like Fuckashima, and millions of years of nuclear waste.
Also the scrounging approach is making saving it harder because people don't want to go without what they already have, and they can see that what you're asking them to suffer and sacrifice to do, isn't even fully solving the problem, so they just do nothing. And people like me who know that we could be going directing to zero pollution, can see that you're only offering 10-20% less pollution, and therefore you look like you're ineffectually and too hesitant.
Do you what to save the planet, or brag about how much you're suffering and sacrificing?
We would be more effective in convincing people to take action, by telling them that they could convert their car they have now to burn Hydrogen and be cleaning the air everywhere they drive and that their home could be powered by hydrogen, solar, and wind and be fully saving the planet and eliminating their energy bills. Also if we demonstrating that to them and it would be Clear that doing so is better than going Green. We could be telling them that they could drive as much as they want and use as much electricity as they want, and would make it easier to convince them to take action and the action they took would be more effective in fighting climate change.
We should have the more powerful goal of energy abundance, because if we lived zero emission and energy abundant lives we could stop scrounging and having to worry about our carbon footprints, polluting our children, or about the survival of Humanity or the Planet. I'm talking about being free and Clear of worry and eliminating the worry from your heart as well as the pollution from the air.
The Green movement is also making energy efficiency their primary weapon against climate change. Which is stupid thinking, because energy efficiency is a secondary problem and not the primary one. Pollution is our primary problem. Coal and oil pollution is poisoning our children and the planet and are killing 5 million people every year world wide, including 18,000 Americans. In the Gulf oil spill, those birds and our beaches were not covered with efficiency! They were covered with oil and it's not only the Drill baby Drill people who caused it, but it was also the Green peoples focus on efficiency that caused it, because by finding ways to continue to use oil, we're still drilling for oil and still having oil spills.
Do you want to save the planet, or brag about how efficiently you're using coal and oil?
Green people would be more powerful if they added to their arguments against oil, coal, and natural gas, that they're not only terrible, but they're also totally unnecessary.
For instance Fracking. They use 1 million gallons of fresh water and nasty chemicals for each hole they drill and can drill up to 10 per sight. That's 10 million gallons of water that gets polluted and that water can then get in to wells and force gas in to wells and contaminate even more water. Then even after all that they can have a dry well and get no gas!
But you will for sure strike hydrogen in water! So if we told them, as I have, that they could put up some solar and wind and for sure get hydrogen in that same 10 million gallons of water, without polluting it, or the air with diesel generators or trucks, or ruin aquifers.
Also when you convert cars and power plants to burn natural gas, its only a small step to convert them to burn hydrogen and go all the way to zero pollution.
If we had the tools to access the energy that's all around us, we wouldn't have to conserve energy or go without driving, heat, air conditioning, or electricity, and it wouldn't matter if we used them inefficiently or what kind of light bulb you had. There is more wind and solar energy and more hydrogen in the seawater that is all around every continent, than all the coal, oil, natural gas, and nuclear energy on this planet. What would you be wasting? sunshine, wind, tidal, wave, or hydrogen from rainwater or seawater? Their all zero emission and abundant.
We need to stop wasting time and money on stupid baby steps like changing light bulbs, that are still powered by coal, and spending billions on bio-fuels and hydrocarbons from algae that still pollute, or doubling down on nuclear, fracking, or clean coal. We need to go directly to hydrogen, solar, and wind, zero emissions and energy abundance, and stop killing the Planet or ourselves and our children with pollution, then argue about efficiency later. Rather than finding ways to continue to pollute ourselves, slightly less efficiently.
If we did people wouldn't be able to get away with "Greening" or saying their taking action but aren't truly doing so, just for good PR. You're either Clear or you're not. If you're 20% pollution free and 80% pollution full, and next to someone who is 100% zero and energy independent, then when there's a blackout, they will be the only place with it's lights on and it would make it Clear to everyone that this is a better way to go.
We should be telling businesses to get rich saving the planet instead of by killing it, because their would be a lot of money to be made by converting every car, home, factory, and power plant on the entire planet. Also businesses and politicians could be saying, 'I am not polluting your children with my operations or my policies. My opponent is. I am your Clear choice' and by doing so would shame their competition into being genuine, and they would compete with each other for who is the Clearest, because we demand it from them and they want our money and our votes.
Focusing on energy efficiency and conservation is energy corporation based thinking and not people based thinking. Also if we spend billions more on upgrading grids and making a Smart grid, we will still be using coal and natural gas. We need to stop the main source of pollution which is coal emissions by converting power plants to burn hydrogen, because we are addicted to grids and it would be faster and cheaper than building all new power plants. But even after we have zero emission grids we will still have blackouts from power lines being blown down in these more powerful storms. So we need to have our brains on the more powerful goal of making every building, as well as every nation, 100% energy independent, and being free and Clear of power lines and power companies.
The LEED program should add a Clear category beyond Platinum, where you get a star made of clear veggie plastic, and certifies that you are 100% zero emission and 100% energy independent.
Also even after putting their time and money into becoming LEED Platinum certified, like Amy Goodman and Democracy Now! did, they are still polluting and they had a blackout during hurricane Sandy. I told her to Go Clear 6 years ago and she could have been the only radio and TV station that was up and running during that blackout and shown the world with her example, but she didn't listen to me.
If we all lived Clearly and were energy independent, everyone, and all future generations, could totally eliminate their energy bills, instead of just reducing them, and never have to pay for heat, electricity, or car fuel ever again, nor need to fight wars for oil.
I agree with other people, that instead of burning carbon we should be using it to make stuff with it. Stuff made with carbon fibers like tennis rackets, golf clubs, and car bodies, are 10 times stronger than steel and 4 times lighter than aluminum. You can also buy carbon fiber shoes right now on the internet. So we all should start living zero emission lives and start wearing carbon fiber shoes and be making REAL CARBON FOOTPRINTS! and stop worrying about our emissions.
We just have to decide to go all the way then to live and speak Clearly and demand the technologies that facilitates everyone being able to fully save the planet, from our Governments and businesses, because it's the true defense of every family and nation.
Thank you for helping me to convince the world to go all the way with their intention to take action and to Go Clear, and for joining me in living this way, because the survival of humanity and the planet depends on it.
You can read more details about my ideas on this issue in my book, Ideas to Save the Planet, and in my the chapter:
Go All the Way and Go Clear Instead of Only Going Green, My Challenge to the Environmental Community to Speak and Act More Powerfully
People are saying that it's going to take another 20-40 years to get the Hydrogen Economy and a hydrogen fuel cell car, and they have been saying that for 10 years already. I want to say those people,
We as a nation survived the Great Depression then mobilized the entire nation to build planes, tanks, bullets, and even nuclear bombs and won World War II and saved the world in only 3.5 years. That's why our grand parents are called the Greatest Generation.
The hydrogen fuel cell was invented in 1839, 174 years ago. The electrolyzer, that generates hydrogen from water, was invented in 1805, 208 years ago.
During these 174 years we have overcome the huge evils of slavery and segregation, won 2 world wars, achieved great technological feats like building the Golden Gate Bridge, the Interstate Highway System, and we went to the Moon in only 10 years.
Are you seriously saying that we can do all that, but it's going to take another 40 years, making it 210 years, just to get a hydrogen powered car and home?
We don’t need a Manhattan Project and spend billions on researching new energy technologies, because everything we need already exists.
People are saying that it was the mobilization of our manufacturing base in WW II that pulled us out of the Great Depression, so if we mobilized similarly to save the planet, it would also pull us out of our current economic depression.
I think that this generation could be even Greater than our Greatest Generation if we only made fighting climate change and saving the world, again, a national priority, by converting to the zero emission energy independent hydrogen, solar, wind, and water economy. Then mobilized the nation to build and install this technology, like they did to build planes, tanks, and bullets in World War II.
If we mobilized this way the United States could fully convert to hydrogen, solar, and wind in only 4 years, not in 40.
We have more people, more money, and higher technology than the WW II generation had.
Which is harder? Defeating Hitler, Italy, and Japan and waging war all over the globe, or building and installing solar panels, wind generators, and fuel cells in/on every home, building, business, and car, just in the United States? Obviously saving the planet from climate change with hydrogen solar, wind, and water would be easier.
Then we can help the rest of the world to live sustainably by spreading clean technologies like solar, wind, and hydrogen, instead of weapons of death. Then also help the world to desalinate of the oceans of water that is all around us and every nation, and build water pipelines from every coast on earth, instead of oil pipelines, which fuels this new Water/Hydrogen economy.
I'm talking about modernizing every home, building, business, factory, government, car, truck, motorcycle, train, plane, bus, boat etc... full conversion to clean power and fuel - worldwide, creating a zero emission energy independent planet.
Thus we could save the world, again, by ending climate change, ending hunger and thirst, and wars for food, water, and oil.
The American Revolution mobilized everyday people and the WW II generation already proved that such mobilization is possible.
We just have to regain the political and moral will, and Choose to be Great again!
The survival of our homes, our children, our economy, our country, and our planet depends on it.
Every nation spends and does whatever it takes to defend themselves.
During the past 100 years we've spent $12 trillion of nuclear weapons that can destroy the entire planet in 30 minutes, and trillions more on wars all over the world, because we thought it was in our vital national interest.
In the USA, we choose mass destruction and universal nuclear bombs, that everyone paid for and is meant to protect everyone, at the expense of universal heath care, dental, day care, retirement, or college and we still spend half of our money every year on defense, even though we have more weapons than all other nations combined.
Pakistan has nuclear weapons, but 60% of their people can't read.
I'm calling upon all of humanity to change its priorities and see that taking action to save the planet by leading zero emission lives powered by Solar, Wind, and Hydrogen, and mobilizing to ending hunger, thirst, poverty, and war is the true defense of every person, child, and nation.
The purpose of my book is to educate everyone about what's possible and to inspire them with a positive vision, to mobilize every aspect of every society to save it and to survive, with the same passion, commitment, funding, and urgency as if they were going to war.
If we can not mobilize to survive like we do when we're at war, and if we refuse to spend trillion on zero emission technologies that can save ourselves and our children from climate change and pollution, like we spent trillions on nuclear weapons that can end all life on this planet... then we deserve to become extinct!
Women do anything to defend their children. Men will go to war and kill others to defend their nation. And they both would jump in front of a car or take a bullet to save their family and children.
All I'm asking you to do is to read a book.
If you'll take a bullet for your children, then take a book.
It is easier to read a book, then act on the wisdom within it and put solar panels and wind generators on your roof, and a hydrogen fuel cell in your basement, then get your car converted to burn hydrogen, or have a job building, installing, and maintaining it all, than it is to go off to a war and kill people.
We as Humanity are not going to survive if we don't stop polluting ourselves and killing ourselves in wars and with indifference to other people suffering by allowing people to thirst and starve to death, or billions to live in poverty.
We are either going to change the way we think and act, and mobilized to survive together, or we're going to all died together.
All the technologies already exists, we have the manpower of billions, we have the money, and we have abundant energy resources all around us.
That's why I'm been saying that saving the planet is a spiritual problem and not a technological or financial problem.
We could save it if we wanted to. We just have to want to survive, see that they are there and take action.
Also everyone acts out of their self interest. I'm trying to get people to see that its in their vital self interested to live pollution free lives, but also to help others to also do so, so they are not polluted and they can survive.
I wrote my book to not only tell the world what I'm seeing that can save the planet but also so I can survive and to rise the money I need to build a zero emission house and live out my hopes, dreams, and right livelihood. What's good for me is good for everyone, because the world needs to hear what I'm saying, I would be showing the world with my example, and stop contributing to the problem with my house and my car.
We need to be alive enough to find out about ideas that can save ourselves and support the people when they try to save our lives.
Please support me in my work to save your life, this Planet, and all of Humanity.
I've been telling the world for 15 years about about the ideas that I'm seeing that can change things around, and I've put six years into my book during which I was homeless a few times, and 7 years into this website. I also have ideas to TV shows and a Movie that can save the planet by converting homes and showing the world what saving could look like, and ideas for new designs that double the capacity of wind generators.
But the world is not hearing me, no one is buying my book, I'm can't find a job, I'm very poor, I need a place to live, and now even my car has broken down.
In return for saving all of Humanity and this Planet, I deserve to have a home of my own, to have my dreams come true, and to not be desperately poor.
Please honor my service and support me in this work.
Give me more, so I can do more.
Please buy my ebook and donate some money to my Paypal, there is a Donate button on the right side of this website.
Thank you for hearing my ideas, for acting on them by mobilizing to defend this planet, your own life and your children's lives, and for helping me today.
You can read more details about my ideas on this issue in my book, Ideas to Save the Planet.
Thank you for choosing to care about saving the planet.
This book is about my 11 years of activism, my vision, and some ideas which could end hunger, thirst, poverty, and climate change. In it I’m offering solutions to our social, political, spiritual, and economic problems, and I’m speaking even more powerfully than Al Gore is about the solutions to our environmental problems.
I’m not an expert, but I have researched sustainable living for 13 years and I refer to many people who are experts. The whole point of this book is that you don’t have to be an expert to see the information that I’m seeing, to make the connections that I’m making, or to take action to Save the Planet.
I invite you to read my book to educate yourself about What You Can Do to Save the Planet. As well as to read My Invitations to Be More Powerful to Al Gore, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Oprah, Michael Moore, Leo DiCaprio, the Queen of England, Bono, The Dalai Lama, Amy Goodman, The Democratic Party, Actors, Celebrities, Musicians, and all the people of the world.
My intention is to communicate what I’m seeing to everyone in the hope of inspiring the world to spiritually shift to see that saving the planet is a moral imperative, then we finally make saving it a personal, national, and international priority, because we see that doing so is the true defense of every person, child, and nation. Thank you for choosing to be a Hero for the Planet and humanity by taking my, I’m On It! Pledge, then working to save it in any way you can.
We can’t wait any longer and we don’t have to wait, either. All the tools we need to do it, already exist. We just have to decide to pick them up and use them.
I've been an activist for 15 years. I'm selling my book not only to save the planet, but to save my own life and to raise the money I need to live out my own advice by building a zero emission, energy independent, and disaster resistant home, that I've been planning for 12 years.
