Pathway in the Sea

Ever see a butterfly flutter by? John 3:7-8

Psalm 77:19

Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.

"The best way to show that a stick is crooked is not to argue about it or to spend time denouncing it, but to lay a straight stick along side it."

President Obama, I am profoundly honored by your acknowledgement of my contribution to human wellbeing:

Michigan Company Gets Singled Out During Obama's State of the Union

Luma Resources of Rochester Hills

Robert and Gary Allen reinvented their established, but struggling roofing business by creating Luma Resources , a solar power rooftop system.

State Of The Union Transcript 2011

This is our generation's Sputnik moment. Two years ago, I said that we needed to reach a level of research and development we haven't seen since the height of the Space Race. And in a few weeks, I will be sending a budget to Congress that helps us meet that goal. We'll invest in biomedical research, information technology, and especially clean energy technology -- (applause) -- an investment that will strengthen our security, protect our planet, and create countless new jobs for our people.

Already, we're seeing the promise of renewable energy. Robert and Gary Allen are brothers who run a small Michigan roofing company. After September 11th, they volunteered their best roofers to help repair the Pentagon. But half of their factory went unused, and the recession hit them hard. Today, with the help of a government loan, that empty space is being used to manufacture solar shingles that are being sold all across the country. In Robert's words, "We reinvented ourselves."

The "Solar-pop" solution to "global warming/ climate change". (1) (excerpted):

Immediately after the "Global Warning" program, there was a suspense-filled thriller about the coming oil crunch, and how it will eclipse "global warming" as the premier hysteria of the world when it reaches socio-economic "critical mass". I've been thinking about that, and I've come up with a concept. ( When 9-11-01 exposed the vulnerability that U.S. dependence on oil imports creates in American foreign policy, I conceived of insulated, photo-electric roofing systems that could be installed in the Sunbelt and hooked to the electrical grid to simultaneously reduce structural cooling demands and increase the supply of electricity. I e-mailed both President Bush and Vice President Cheney , among others, about the idea. If anything is happening with it, it is definitely under my radar. This concept is a refinement of that idea. I think that Kim Clement will appreciate this)

Reducing oil prices

It has occured to me that the U. S. energy supply could be bolstered substantially by developing a roofing material that has photo-electric properties similar to the arrays used to make power from sunlight for electronic satellites. In the warmer months it could reduce heat entering structures through the roof while simultaneously generating electric power that could be routed into the grid through transformers, thus simultaneously reducing cooling demand and boosting the power supply. If such materials were put into widespread use, the synergystic effect on the electrical supply and demand would be phenomenal, not to mention the additional "green" benefit of reducing the consumption of fossil fuels and the attendant emissions generated for the production of electrical power. And anyone with a rudimentary grasp of economics knows that if you reduce the demand for oil, you reduce its price.Ta-da! End of 5-24-09 update.)

Update 1-26-11: Here's a concept for the transportation of hydrogen and other cargo from the mid-oceanic "Solar-pop" energy production facilities: outbound transports could have dirigible-like inflatable tanks of sufficient volume to make the craft lighter than air when filled with gaseous hydrogen. The shell could be made of carbon fiber armor plating on the exterior, with an inner "hull" with an ionized, or electrically charged liner to repel hydrogen atoms to prevent "seepage loss" due to the particles' relative small size. On "turnaround" after the hydrogen and other cargo has been delivered, the tanks could be collapsed into pontoons and the craft converted to surface vessels to transport passengers,supplies and commercial cargo back to the port facilities at the mid-oceanic "Solar-pop" production centers.

Another advantage offered by mid-oceanic international transportation hubs is that craft could be segregated to only travel from country of origin to the hub and back. Containers and passengers could be screened before being loaded or boarded onto transports bound for other countries. U.S. domestic travel could revert to Constitutional restrictions on searches and seizures, while international travel would be exempt from the jurisdiction of the United States Constitution, and American Citizens abroad would be subject to international law and treaties.


Other people's ideas, public money. "Competitiveness"? It's like GM's slogan "May the best car win." After the worst car companies lost and public money was misappropriated to cover it up. Or Barrack Obama's or Al Gore's Nobel Prize. For the first time in my adult life, I am truly ashamed of my country. No justice, no peace? I've got a couple of spare nanoseconds,tell me everything this generation knows about justice. Here's a plan to "reinvent" America: Broken Arrow!
