Sent this day 8/28/2012 An Open Letter Addressed to The President of the United States of America and to all of the currently seated members of Government and to all of the citizens of the USA to the people of the world and to all governments. Please Handle and deliver/share as you would a letter delivered by the USPS.
Mr. President and all currently seated members of Government and to all the citizens of the USA, to the governments and people of the world.
1st let me state that these letters I send to you I also send out on social media to all of the citizens of the USA to read as well - and I suppose it could be considered as open letters to the world also.
Anyway today's subject: Jump starting the re-Birth of the USA.
This letter is mainly to the People of the USA.
I Heard a comment: I agree on the renewable energy idea, but of course, without completely replacing our current transportation system, (an economically daunting task}, we still won't be free of the need for oil.
I responded: Sure some type of oil will be needed for use as a lube - but we do not need to continue to burn it.
We can change all of that - here at home and to the rest of the world. We need not be on a path of perpetual armed conflict.
We have the technology - we have the capability we certainly have the need.
It is all here and ready to use - and this is just what I have stumbled across.
Spread the word.
Green Tech. New and improved - now with Liquid Metal Battery for efficient power storage and distribution.
This is where we should be going: Green Energy we have the technology we just need to use it. This is what I am talking about. A clean future to be implemented NOW!

You have got to watch this vid: The liquid Metal Battery - another piece to the puzzle.
Additional Liquid Metal Battery links.
Support green energy technology - industry - jobs. Save our world save our economy.
Rework free trade agreements as they are currently detrimental to the Business, Employment, Economic and Environmental health of the USA and in extension the world.
Put an end to outsourcing for Profit over People and the environment.
Stop world wide corporate abuses of people and environments.
Give this some serious thought/consideration.
I received this response: Just one thing. I've seen you post this before. I know your heart is in the right place on this, but please. E cat is NOT available and is quite possibly a scam. I know you would not wish to mislead people so I'm suggesting you leave it out of your list. I am hopeful that LENR has a future but so far, no one has produced a practical device. Andrea Rossi , (the guy behind the E cat), is a bit sketchy.
To which I replied: A Thorium reactor is quite possible while we work towards an E-CAT. Thorium is cleaner and safer then uranium and has a much smaller footprint.
I received this reply: Yes, Thorium reactors are a proven tech.
I continued: That is where we should be going for replacing old decommissioned power plants - and then there is also:

I got this next comment: ok, and moving people like in europe - there will be problems no matter how we work it out but cars have got to go - at least in the way we use them now.
To which I replied:
There are alternative fuels for them as well.
The next comment I received: once again we agree but who is going to inform them - wall street - obama - certainly not ryan.
And this led me to making this comment: It has to happen through public activism. Just like the state by state campaign to remove corporate personhood - Move to Amend. It will need public education so that they understand what we are facing and that we have alternatives - then it may well take a government style stimulus ( kind of ) to get it going. Interest free loans to small business to get them retooled. Then interest free loans to get the infrastructure built purchase the new equipment and hire the needed workers. This has to go with restarting much in the way of manufacturing to get USA citizens back to work making the products and materials needed for these infrastructure and transportation changeovers. This means leveling the economic playing field so that outsourced products will come to the USA market along with imports at a competitive cost to the domestically made.
Nothing good can happen over all economically until domestic manufacture is supported by the governments trade policies.
The stock the government still owns of GM would be very useful in getting them on board. The other manufacturers would no doubt follow suit if the new Hydrogen fuel cell cars ( water vapor exhaust ) started selling. And why wouldn't they(?) they can basically use the same engine - just recarb it for hydrogen burning instead of gasoline.
FURTHER: Remove subsidies from fossil fuel and place that money into The rebirth of the USA and we have a pretty good start. Along with proper taxation of the wealthy - and the end of corpoRAT welfare. Perhaps see about doing something about the trillions of dollars hidden offshore.
I recieved in reply: As i said i hope you are right but i am betting the farm (literally) that you are wrong. we do not have time before resource scarcity shuts down whatever we try to do. china knows it and they have a plan. we do not have a government or business class capable of the term thinking that it takes to pull out of this mess. buckminster fuller called it in 1969 but we were too stupid to listen. once again i will be happy if you are right. the investor jeremy grantham has written about the coming resource scarcity if you are interested. stephen leeb is another one who is interesting to read.
To which I said: It is why the public needs to be informed as of yesterday and we need to get very busy - involved busy.
AND SO I SENT THIS LETTER OUT TO YOU ON TWITTER - PLEASE RE-TWEET IF YOU UNDERSTAND THE ISSUES AND THE URGENCY.
Excerpt from article:
Other alternative fuels result in airplane performance penalties. For example, liquid hydrogen (LH2) not only presents very substantial airport infrastructure and airplane design issues, but because of the need for heavy fuel tanks, a short-range airplane would experience a 28 percent decrease in energy efficiency while on a 500-nautical-mile (nmi) mission. However, because airplanes need to carry much more fuel for a long range flight, and Liquid Hydrogen (LH2) fuel is quite lightweight the lighter takeoff weight of the airplane results in an energy efficiency loss of only 2 percent while on a 3,000-nm mission.
Then I just found this article on liquid hydrogen from Air Products a company that supplies liquid Hydrogen to NASA:
