United States Low Carbon Economy
For the United States to
have a Low-Carbon Economy, utility companies need to stop burning coal, oil
and natural gas in their power plants. As shown in the graphs, United States
is not only wasting 57.5% of the energy that is produced wasted but burning
of fossil fuels creates six billons of metric tons of carbon dioxide that
are destroying Earthís environment. The initial goal is to reduce wasted
energy from 57.5% to 15%.

By upgrading fossil
power plants to
Mirror Power plants, which
are three times more efficient and donít produce greenhouse gases;
continuing to build hydrogen and electric vehicles, and improving energy
efficiencies in homes, business and industrial applications, the following
benefits can be realized:
is reduced by 50% from upgrading fossil power plants
and making more efficient vehicles for transportation. Energy Efficiency
increases from 42.5% to 85%. Another 10.5 million barrels per day or 3.7
billion barrels per year are saved.
levels are reduced by 4 billion metric tons below 1990 levels: 2,300
million metric tons from upgrading fossil power plants 1,000 million metric
tons from transportation sector; plus 600 million metric tons of nitrous
Economic: United States becomes major source of mirror energy
and petrochemicals that help bring every country into the 21st
century. The transformation of Americaís economy creates ten of millions of
American high tech jobs.
Americanís leadership and
technology helps countries move into the 21st century by
improving their economies and increase peopleís standard of living. People
begin to understand that the purpose of government, education, and business
is to work collegiately together to help humanity.
