RIGHT NOW WE ARE LOSING 200 SPECIES A DAY WORLDWIDE


 

AMERICA NEEDS A PLAN

In my opinion the top three problems we need to fix are climate change, education, and democracy.  I have a plan for all three.

ONE

Build the renewable energy grid.  It's a 40 year project that will create half a million jobs in Texas, reduce the cost of energy for consumers, reduce pollution and CO2, reduce the cost of healthcare, and reduce the need for foreign oil.  It's one project that will help the middle class.

TWO

Reinvent our education system and take it from the 18th century to the 21st century.  When an American high school senior graduates, they should have four options: College, Trade School, Apprenticeship, or Service (Americorps, US Military). We must make our children ready for the world that is coming.

THREE

I have a three pronged approach to bring back Democracy: A. Legalize Ranked Choice Voting  B. Make Voting Day a National Holiday  C. Make all Federal and State Elections Publicly Financed.  

After those three there are 21 more listed on my Thought Revolution page.

 

AND THIS QUESTIONNAIRE CAME TODAY FROM TEXANS FOR VOTER CHOICE

5. Any other facts relevant to their petition drive, decision to run, , etc.

Well it’s a fact that abrupt climate change is upon us and literally no one is talking about it.  Dems, Repubs, The President, NASA, CNN, etc.  The only organization to take it seriously is the US Military, which reported 4 years ago that Climate Change was the greatest threat to American security in the future, and they are preparing and planning for it.  Another relevant fact is there are 200 species going extinct every day worldwide.  That’s a factor of 100x increase in normal rates. It’s also a fact that my campaign has the answer:  Build the Renewable Energy Grid.  

 

THE GRID INCLUDES EVERY TOWN, EVERY BUILDING, AND EVERYBODY

There are many types of renewable energy sources available and we will need to deploy all of them in as many places as possible.    Take a look at something that could be in every building in the future: Geothermal.

  HARVEST ENERGY ON YOUR LAND   I will introduce to congress the Solar feed in tariff law which would pay $.54 per kilowatt hour.  A five megawatt field can produce almost $3,000 a day, $90,000 on a good month, and almost a million dollars a year in a sunny place like Texas.  Former Texas Governor Rick Perry did a similar scheme building $7 billion worth of high tension power lines for the wind industry and now Texas leads the nation in wind energy production.

  EVEN THE WIND IS BIGGER IN TEXAS!    Wind will provide half of all renewable energy in Texas in the future, which will be more than most countries.
