United States Clean Energy Plan
Norm Hansen, PE, CEM, AEE Chicago Chapter President
United States Clean Energy Plan is an alternative to the Smart Grid that is
being implemented and will triple energy prices: Electricity will increase
from 10 to 30 cents per kilowatt-hour and gasoline from $4 to $12 per
gallon. The $1 trillion World Carbon Tax will provide funds to
foreign countries (5.5 billion tons of carbon dioxide times $200 per ton).
$1 trillion Energy Tax will be used to reduce federal and state
deficits. An estimated 10 million America jobs would be lost.
The United States Clean Energy Plan was developed with
support from the Association of Energy Engineers Chicago Chapter members.
America can achieve Clean Energy and Energy Independence in 15
to 20 years by having government, academic, and business
leaders work collegiately together like the Internet. Coal, oil,
biomass, and natural gas are used for making products rather than burning
them and destroying our environment.
Energy is accomplished by manufacturing 500 Clean Breeder Power Plants
in assembly lines like the automobiles and airplanes. Power plants generate
five trillion kilowatts hours of electricity. At 10 cents per kilowatt-hour,
revenues are $500 billion per year. The payback is about two years. After
meeting the country’s needs for clean energy, 100 power plants per
year could be exported, which would improve U.S. Trade Balance by $100 billion per
year. Carbon dioxide emissions are reduced by two billion tons per year.
Approximately 2 million jobs are created.
Independence is accomplished by replacing cars, trucks, busses, trains,
ships, and airplanes with efficiently clean energy vehicles. Old cars are
replaced with electric vehicles. $400 billion is saved by recharge an
electric vehicle for $5 per week rather than $50 per week for gasoline.
Airplanes use milligrams rather than thousands of tons of fuel. Oil
refineries are converted into coal refineries. Carbon dioxide emissions are
reduced by 2.5 billion tons per year. American’s economy grows and creates
an estimated 8 million jobs.
In summary, the power plants
generate clean efficient energy; transportation’s energy efficiency
increases from twenty-five to over seventy percent; and carbon dioxide
emissions are reduced by 4.5 billion tons per year. United States’ Economy
is stimulated. And an estimated 10 million jobs are created.
World Clean Energy
Plan, modeled after United States Clean Energy Plan, would bring
every country (ten billion people) into the 21st century. Carbon
dioxide emissions would drop in half. World’s Economy would grow to over
$1,000 trillion. However, the real benefits will come from taking billion of people
out of poverty, providing them an opportunity to have world-class education,
and empowering them to fulfill their dreams.
