there is one buzz phrase that stands out above all others these
days, it is "Alternative Energy," "Renewable Energy," "Green Energy,"
"Clean Energy," or something like that. I am a big proponent of
clean, efficient, reusable everything - energy included. While I
do not go to extreme measures to accomplish that goal (sorry, more
than one square of TP required here), I am certain that I have done
more than the vast majority of people (who have a choice) do. The
only aspect of the Green movement that galls me is the whacko, in-your-face
extremist who wants to tell me how to live my life ... or else,
especially since they are typically some of the biggest hypocrites
A huge part of the multi-trillion dollar debt that we
are having foisted upon us (and saddling our great-grandchildren
with) will be going toward research and development, manufacturing,
construction, and maintenance of clean energy sources like wind
turbine generators, solar arrays, ocean wave and tidal generators,
geothermal, and other types of generators. Radically new technologies
like energy harvesting (recovering wasted energy of motion like
in vehicular braking, suspension system damping, even body motions)
are also becoming mainstream.
It is a brave new world with lots of opportunity. This is a chance
for smart entrepreneurs to get back some of their tax money in the
form of research grants. Check out the Small Business Innovation
grants website. Please cut me in for some consulting business out
of appreciation for my tip ;-)
