The global economic crisis can be solved by everyone mobilizing to save the Planet.
In addition to fixing our bridges and roads, we, and every nation, need to convert to solar, wind, and hydrogen, and desalinate seawater water on a large scale in order to stop polluting ourselves and our children. Doing so would end climate change, and revive every economy by manifesting jobs building, installing, selling, and maintaining the new technology that saves the planet.
Also businesses could be getting rich on saving the planet instead of killing it and doing so is going to create millions of good jobs. Those workers will also then have even more money to spend in the economy.
If we had universal hydrogen fuel cells, solar, and wind, everyone could be saving thousands of dollars a year that they currently spend on car fuel, electricity, and heat, and be spending it else where in the economy.
All coal fired power plants can be converted to burn hydrogen and every nation on the planet could have zero emission and energy independent grids. Jobs would be created to build new burners and install them.
Also all cars can be converted to burn hydrogen, (1920) so everyone can generate their own hydrogen gas from water and be driving a hydrogen burning car that clean the air as they drive, then people could drive as much as they want. Then tourism would go up because people are no longer restricted by gas prices. They could spend more when they travel, too.
Air planes can be converted to hydrogen, as well, which would make traveling cheaper and cleaner. The Space Shuttle's rockets and computers have been fueled by hydrogen for 30 years.
If everyone had universal health care and college, they would have tens of thousands of extra dollars to spend else where in the economy, as well. Also having a smarter and healthier work force is good for business. If people were healthy instead of being killed by pollution and from not having health care, they would live longer and pay taxes longer, which would help to pay for it.
All of which would be more of an economic stimulus than a one time check or a bailout of banks, and not for just for us, but for all future generations!
We could be paying for it all with a "You're Killing the planet!" Tax, not this carbon cap and trade silliness. Governments should help everyone to operate with zero emissions, but if people refuse and continue to pollute, they get a huge, "You're killing the planet!" tax. If they want to stop being taxed, all they have to do is stop polluting. Others who are living cleanly, would get a "Thank you for saving the planet!" grant or tax cut.
Any debt that we have to go into to do all that would get paid back quicker by a stronger economy, and our children will actually get something for the debt they have to pay. They will not only get bridges and roads, but also get solar panels, wind generators, fuel cells, no black outs, free power, fuel, and heat, clean air, no wars for oil, an education, health care, and a planet to live on.
I don't think our children and grand children would say, "that's too expensive."
All the tools we need to save the planet and every economy, already exist. We just have to have vision, intelligence, and spiritual will to pick them up and use them, now!
So let's get on it!
