We need to find innovative ways to utilize all our renewable resources - wind, sun, water and biofuels. Anything that is made using petrochemicals can be made from hemp.

Harry Truman's energy plan was to have the country converted to solar power by 1974. Eisenhower came in and dumped Truman's plan in favor of nuclear energy.

Had we had a SMART President after 911, we would not be bogged down in Iraq and watching the deficit spiral out of control. Our National Guard soldiers would be at home (ready to respond to disasters like Katrina). And, we would be enjoying an economic boom from all the jobs created as this country hit the enemy where it really hurts - in the wallet - and converted the entire USA and its possessions to alternative energy sources.

Why aren't we doing this? Follow The Money..

Everybody has or will fall in to a trap called "constant refueling". Do seriously know how much we are diffusing the by product of gasoline until we can not see the sun? Ride a bike, encourage your kids or other people to just walk. We are a fat and lazy nation and our economy might come down because of it.
