“We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking
we used when we created them.”
United States Clean
Energy Plan was developed with support from the
Association of Energy Engineers Chicago Chapter members. America achieves Clean Energy & Energy Independence in
ten to fifteen years. To implement, government, academic, and business leaders work collegiately
together as they did for implementing of the Internet. Coal, oil, biomass, &
natural gas are used for producing consumer & industrial products rather
than burning them & destroying our environment.
Clean Energy is accomplished by building factories
to manufacture 500 Clean Breeder Power Plants in assembly lines like Boeing
manufactures airplanes. A Power Plant generates 10 billion kilowatts hours
of electricity. At 10 cents per kilowatt-hour, the annual revenues are $1
billion per power plant or $500 billion for 500 power plants. Energy from
the power plants is used by oil refineries to make petrochemical and manufacture consumer products. After meeting the
America's energy needs, 100 power plants per year are exported, which
improves U.S. Trade Balance by $100 billion per year. Since sources of clean energy are used, carbon dioxide
emissions are reduced by 2 billion tons per year. Approximately 2 million
jobs are created.
Energy Independence is accomplished by upgrading
factories to manufacture energy efficient cars, trucks, busses,
trains, ships, and airplanes. Old cars are replaced with electric vehicles.
Electric vehicle can be charged at home for $5 per week rather than $50 per
week for gasoline at service stations. Oil refineries are converted to coal
refineries for making petrochemicals. Public transportation systems use clean energy. Airplanes use milligrams rather than thousands of
tons of fuel. Millions of people will travel in spacecraft into space in minutes, Moon in
hours & Mars in days. Carbon dioxide emissions are reduced by 2.5 billion
tons per year. The annual savings are over $400 billion per year. About 8 million jobs are created.
The synergistic effects of
the advanced technology increases America's Gross National Product from $17 to $34 trillion. See Forbes Article
Americas-Missing-Wealth. With fiscal restraints and financial planning,
the federal, state, and municipal debts and deficits could be eliminated. Social
Security and pensions could become solvent. The individual per capita Income
increases from $54,000 to $100,000. Carbon dioxide emissions are reduced
from 5.5 to 1 billion
tons without implementing the multi-trillion dollar
Carbon Tax. An estimated 10 million jobs are created.
World Clean Energy
country into the 21st century by supplying 10 billion people with
abundant, clean, efficient energy without destroying our environment.
Leadership is required to make this quantum leap. Leader’s caveman thinking
inside the box changes to thinking about the unlimited opportunities outside
the box. Leaders learn to work together and eliminate the
war, pestilence, and
famine, which have plagued Humanity for thousands of years.
Every country or region
has modernization plans to move their people into the 21st
An example is
China's Smart City Urbanization Plan for 300 million people. The plan
leverages expertise in infrastructure with collaborative business models.
Companies deliver complete solutions to help make cities more efficient,
livable, and sustainable by focusing on key areas: energy, transportation,
buildings & homes, water, and public services.
10,000 Power plants that generate electricity,
make petrochemicals from
coal, biomass, & oil, manufacture consumer & industrial products, desalt
seawater for domestic drinking water and irrigating crops, and split water
directly into hydrogen & oxygen for industrial applications.
Other clean energy sources are nuclear,
hydroelectric, geothermal, wind, solar and mirror energy. Carbon dioxide
emissions are reduced by fifty percent.
Better utilization of
the natural resources turns scarcities into surpluses. Countries stop using
food as sources of energy and supply the food to starving people. The
billions of tons of coal, billions of barrels of oil, billons of tons of
biomass, and trillions of cubic feet of natural gas are turned into
petrochemicals for making consumers and industrial products rather than
burning them and destroying Earth's environment.
By having government,
academia, and business leaders work collegiately together like they did
for implementing of the Internet,
the Global Economy grows to over $1,000 trillion in 35 years; and the Space
Economy grows to over $50 trillion. However, the real benefits come from
taking billions of people out of poverty, providing them the opportunity to
have a world-class education, and empowering them to fulfill their dreams.
About 4 billion people are living in prosperous countries.
China's Smart City Urbanization Plan
moves 300 million people into cities. By replicating China’s plan by a factor of ten,
3 billion people move into the 21st century. By replicating the plan
again, 3 billion people, who will be born in the next thirty-five years, move into
the 21st century or a total of 10 billion people.
The manufacturing factories, which assemble the 10,000 Clean Power Plants,
could be located the United States or other industrialized counties. United States is
the World’s leader in producing petrochemical. The Clean Power Plants
could make petrochemical from coal, biomass & oil for making consumer and
industrial products rather than burning them and destroy our environment.
Space is the
Final Frontier. Airplanes will travel any where in the World using
milligrams rather than thousands of tons of fuel. Spacecraft will take
people into space in minutes and communities on Moon in hours and Mars in
Gene Roddenberry’s Star
Trek Dream of traveling to the stars will become a reality in the 21st
The question for
government, academic, & business leaders is:
"Do you support a
Energy Plan to bring every country
Carbon Energy Plan to destroy our environment?"
