thousand years ago, a Roman Senator suggested that all slaves wear white
armbands to better identify them.
said a wiser Senator. "If
they see how many of them there are, they may revolt."The Potomac Sustainable Communities
Initiative is the name coined to the decentralized effort throughout the
independent research community to develop and distribute the most advanced
energy technologies currently available today for review, many of which are
open source technologies. These
technologies will streamline private and government efforts to reduce our
dependency on foreign hydrocarbon resources, while also reducing the negative
impact of global energy consumption on the environment.
These advanced energy technologies will
also decentralize our nation’s vulnerable energy infrastructure. Current
trends make it clear that we are out of time to consider funding
conventional alternative energy research.
oil production has peaked and is now in decline. It is time to face
the hard truths about energy.
The planet’s ecosystem cannot sustain continued hydrocarbon
dependence, as outlined in the UN’s
2007 Global Environment Outlook Report. Our nation MUST immediately shift its
research emphasis to advanced alternative energy technologies if our way of
life is to continue, while minimizing the likelihood of expanding regional wars
to maintain adequate supplies of hydrocarbon resources. Once funding is successfully distributed
to these research projects, the technologies developed out of this initiative
will replace conventional alternative energy technologies in what is becoming a
dollar alternative energy market.
In an effort to extend the continued viability of geopolitical and
economic infrastructures while also protecting U.S. national security interests,
an international effort must be initiated comparable to The Apollo Program. We must work together to develop
“silver bullet” energy alternatives to hydrocarbon resources, in
order to minimize the catastrophic impact of mankind’s resistance to a
post-hydrocarbon energy society. Go
