Energy and America

America is entering into a time of Energy crisis. It could easily be the greatest crisis that human-kind is to face. America can not continue to lead the world econimcally and drain it dry at the same time. The National Collegiate Clean Energy Initiative is working to unite American students and citizens alike, to demand CLEAN ENERGY POLICY.

The FED Chairman, Mr. Alan Greenspan was on
capitol hill in the semi-annual monetary policy
meeting with congress. (also known as the Humphrey
Hawkins meeting)While Mr. Greenspan was mostly upbeat
about the economy (Note: I am not as up beat) he made
some very troubling remarks.
Mr. Greenspan commented that the..."Long-term futures
for crude oil...going 10-years out...have risen
substantially in the last few years...and are being
sustained at these levels..."
Now... the market is a discounting mechinism. Has the
futures market begun to discount PEAK OIL? I believe
the answer is YES! In REAL DOLLARS, crude needs to get
over $100/brl to equal the peak of the 70's crunch.
It is extremely crucial that clean energy comes to
market NOW - being infront of this curveball will
determine our future and the state of our economy.
What is just as troubling is that I have not heard any
covering of this in the media.

I believe the greatest crisis that Human-Kind has ever
seen has begun. America, a country founded on the
basis of freedom is under attack by unstoppable
inflating energy prices, and it has just begun. The
situation in the middle-east is escalating with no end
in sight, as relations with the OPEC countries has
begun to fall apart. Believing the promises of Saudi
Oil is not an option. With horrifying accounting
scandals of greed in our country.... who truly
believes that the OPEC countries will be honest with
us regarding the oil reserves; or anything else for
that matter?! It is common knowledge of the recent
events at Shell and their false statements of
reserves. It will not stop there I'm sure. While Saudi
Arabia has been pumping water to flush out oil from
their depleting reserves since the mid-late 90's . . .
more problems are developing. Americans are being told
to leave the middle-east. We all know that we need
those Americans in the OPEC countries in order for us
to actually get the oil to American soil. Should
America, the largest and most powerful nation in the
world be relying so much on foreign energy?

From an Economic point of view, RENEWABLE ENERGY, such
as wind and solar energy will be a long-term net
positive, not only for Long Islands' economy . . . for
the nations' economy as well. Just as in the Aviation
industry many years ago, Long Island became the
National Economic Leader and was looked upon with
great admiration. Long Island Thrived. It will take
two years to begin construction of the wind park off
Jones Beach. By that time, oil prices will be much
higher then where it is now acting as a devastating
tax on American Citizens. This is a once in a lifetime
opportunity must not be missed. It simply makes
dollars and sense.

The DOE predicts that the price of Crude Oil will
climb until around the year 2025 and then peak. If
true this means that Peak oil is now. Supply has
already begun to decline as not one OPEC country has
claimed new oil finds. Let us not forget the two wild
cards; China and India. America is now at the mercy of
two countries growing by leaps and bounds. We have no
control and it has only begun to effect us all. In
terms of REAL dollars, to reach the equivalent price
of oil during the energy crisis of the 70's. Oil
would need to go to over $100 dollars a barrel. $40 is
simply a drop in the bucket.

Supply is going down - Demand is going up. This is the
current long-term situation and it is not going away ?
UNLESS.
Wind Power will give Long Island Independence from the
volatile and raising energy prices ahead. It will give
stability to our children and our grandchildren. It
will give them a chance.

"?.I'm driving my daughter to school as we always do
and she bursted out singing the song she learned for
her pre-K graduation, "I'm Proud To Be an American."
By the time she was in the plains of Minnesota and the
hills of Tennessee I was glad I had my sunglasses
on.... my eyes were flooded. This is not the same
world that we were born into... and I for one... am
scared for my children."
On behalf of students across the country who are
fighting for the future, on behalf of the National
Collegiate Clean Energy Initiative please ADVOCATE and
vote for CLEAN ENERGY POLICY.

The National Democratic Convention began on Monday as
President Clinton gave his usual "Reagan-like" speech.
It has been interesting to listen to all of the
members of the Democratic party give praise for John
Kerry as the next President of the U.S.A. What has
been more interesting is listening to the united
conviction towards "clean energy," "energy
independence and energy sustain-ability." In almost
every speech that included policy, "clean energy" and
"energy independence" or simply a good "energy policy"
was numero uno.
The Electric Power Research Institute estimates that
power outages and power quality disturbances cost
businesses in the U.S. more than $120 billion a year.
This goes hand and hand as the infrastructure is older
than my grandfather.
In the New Growth Initiative Apollo Alliance for
Energy Independence plan, bio-fuels and energy
efficiency investments alone could produce over one
million jobs by 2015.

Tonight, John Edwards will speak to the country. Will
"clean energy" and "energy independence" be on his
agenda?

Every time President Clinton spoke of the future of
jobs, the first industry on the list was the "clean
energy" industry.
Now . . . by no means do I anticipate the republican
convention to be any different. Do you?
Stay tuned for a complete breakdown of the NATIONAL
COLLEGIATE CLEAN ENERGY INITIATIVE'S positions' on
Clean Energy policy...or lack there of.

Crude oil is now at $43 per barrel reaching new highs.
Or Are they. Lets not forget that about $114 is the
actually peak of the Yom-Kippour War. My how short the
human memory could be. John Kerry gave an emotional
speech full of great rhetoric. In the last ESP I was
waiting to listen for ENERGY information. What will he
do? When will he do it? When time came to talk policy,
he said he was going "say something FDR couldn't do at
his speech,... goto JohnKerry.com" So JohnKerry.com it
is...

What did we find? "...Investing in future technology,
today..." Fuel Cell vehicles were mentioned. Clean
Energy efficiencies..." yadadad... Nothing truly in
depth as I had hoped for. I remind you,reader, that
this is a NON-PARTISAN effort to advocate for CLEAN
ENERGY. With that said...why do you goto JohnKerry.com
then goto Georgebush.com and see if there is a button
on their site called "Energy." When you find it...read
and compare. THIS IS IMPORTANT!!

So needless to say I was a little let down at the
level of importance that Clean Energy and Renewable
Energy was given. THAT, my fellow advocates...is why
there is now the NATIONAL COLLEGIATE CLEAN ENERGY
INITIATIVE.
Soon...very soon, a massive email campaign will begin.
It will go to many student organizations around the
country. But until than, much work needs to be done.

There is a lot of talk as of late about something
called "clean-coal." Kerry promises 20% of the
countries electricity via renewable energy sources
proposing "clean-coal." Is there such a thing? YES!
A company by the name of Headwaters Inc. (HDWR on the
NASDAQ) based in South Jordan Utah, Headwaters seems
to be leading the way in creating a "clean-coal"
environment. Through it's subsidiary Coval Fuels, a
coal based synthetic fuel is available that is "safe,
odorless and easy to handle. They do not increase
HAPs, VOCs, Sox or Nox emissions and do not fall under
any hazardous material regulations."

Attorney Generals from eight states including New
York, Iowa and California file lawsuit last month
against utilities including Cinergy Corp., Xcel
Energy, and Southern Company just to name a few, for
dumping a stagering 10% of the countries emitted
greenhouse gases. The question is simple. Did they
know what they were doing? Did they know these gases
were harmful to people? Did they care? Apparently they
are not being fined for anything from the past. They
are simply being asked to decrease harmful emissions.
Is that enough? Shouldn't there be some kind of
accountability? Why... remember when the EPA was first
formed. We knew then that talons killed.

Global Warming said to be responsible for an
ecological catastrophe as the coastal waters of
Scotland warm. Scores of skuas, terns and guillemots
(all birds) are not breeding. The small fish they eat
is moving closer to colder waters, hence there is not
enough food. "Just a foretaste of what lies ahead," -
Tony Juniper of the Friends of the Earth.
STUDENTS OF AMERICA - STAND UP! WAKE UP! REALIZE THE
IMPORTANCE OF CLEAN ENERGY AND ENERGY INDEPENDENCE!!!

Fed raises Discount rate 1/4%...why not...
Crude now at $44.5... and the charts spell "higher" -
plan and clear. Commodity prices have stabilized in
the past months... - only a buying opportunity in my
view. Lets not forget... we've entered into a SECULAR
BULL MARKET IN COMMODITIES!!

Yukos up in the air! Accounts frozen one minute... not
frozen the next. Which is it going to be Mr. Putin?
I'm sure he doesn't mind the price of crude going
higher... Mr. Putin figures... Russia has more oil
then people think... if you include all that
wilderness over there and lets not forget about
Putins' attempts to tap into the potential oil under
those frozen (or not so frozen anymore) ice-caps. So
when crude is at $100/brl they will have some amazing
crude finds...I'm sure. It would be nice... since
there hasn't been any oil reserve finds in how
long...?

Can anyone find any oil from Iraq yet... not me...
they keep having to shut-down plants... you know...
that terrorism thing.

Lets talk about ETHANOL - How much money could the
farmers make if the farmers could farm ethanol? How
about turning all that High Fructose Corn Syrup into
Ethanol instead??? Do you know the average person
consumes 63lbs of HFC per year. Oh we're fat alright!
Allocation of resources... Allocate more farmed corn
to produce Ethanol... instead of HFC. Think Coke will
go for that?

When ever NCCEI hears about an ENVIRONMENTALLY
friendly company we will do our best to spread the
word...

New Belgium Brewing Company, from Ft. Collins CO. is
the first American Brewery to be powered by 100% WIND
Energy. New Belgium is also proud of it's recycling
efforts. The best part is... this is an employee owned
company. The employees voted to forgive some of their
profit sharing plan (options) in order to make this
happen. WAY TO GO!!!! And guess what...profits are
up!!
The company is gaining market share as Beer drinkers
are paying attention. This is a perfect example of the
long term economic benefits to using a 100% renewable
energy source. Don't let me forget the energy company
supplying the power - VESTAS.
VESTAS Wind Systems A/S - This Denmark based global
leader in Wind generation sure is making a name for
it's self. Keep up the good work!!
