“Changing the World One Grid at a Time”

Inno4Green

This Facebook group was created in response to the Gore Challenge. The goal for this group is to establish a bellwether to test the global IQ on alternative energy and global concerns on the changing earth climate. Inno4Green Initiative will not only focus on how to help on issues regarding global warming, development and innovations on alternative energy and green construction; but also will help influence leaders on governmental policies, and guidelines on technology transfer for sustainable development. As an extension to the goal of Inno4Green Initiative, I am fortunate to be involved with the Pickens Plan. I remember I have been called so many names when I supported Barack Obama for President, Now that he is in place as the 44th President of the United States of America, I will be devoting my spare time with green energy projects such as the Pickens Plan. Believe it or not, the same group of people who called me names, derogatory words that I will not waste my time mentioning in any given occasion-just tagged me as a pawn to a rich man’s game. All I can say is that I know when it is time to step up to the plate and do the right thing.  We have until 2020 and do whatever it takes to answer the Gore Challenge. In 2020, my daughter will be 16-years old, Boone will be at least 91-years old, and I hope at that time we already have the power grid that will not only put more greens in our pockets but also reaching our goal to at least more than 50% reduction in emissions making this Earth of ours a greener planet. For now, just think about the short term gain of any green energy projects-new genre of jobs that cannot be outsourced, green jobs that will eventually heal our ailing economy.

Poetry In Motion

The deafening silence of our drive back from Schulenburg Texas to Dallas made me reminisce the sight of immense wind turbines silhouetted against the Texas skies on our way back from our holiday vacation in Cloudcroft New Mexico. The ever-present breeze that sweeps the treeless Texas landscapes after you exit the New Mexico border has been overtaken by hundreds of wind turbines that produce electricity for the distant city dwellers and new income for rural residents. The newly minted Stimulus Bill will help create new jobs not only for rural America but for the rest of the country. The sound economic principles of a green new deal such as the Pickens Plan will drive energy development in Texas, to the country and our neighbors.
While the blades of the wind turbine circling gracefully as if it is being caressed and kissed gently by the Texas breeze, it suddenly reminds me of the fact that Texas is one of the greatest wind power potential in the United States. Texas has a consistent high wind speeds capable of sustaining a productive wind farm. The fact that wind energy is clean, reliable and inexhaustible is icing on the cake. The sight of the white wind turbines while the light of sun glinting across the horizon is like poetry in motion. Only if I got that new thin “Green” Apple laptop for Christmas-I could have written a perfect poem for such a unique but promising sight. As soon as we pass the last cluster of wind turbines, it feels like I snapped from a trance and realized that I got the perfect gifts ever from any given holidays-my wife, and our little princess sleeping in the back sit of our fuel efficient Toyota Sienna as if she is being comforted with the enchanting thrum of the wind turbines The deafening silence of our drive back from Schulenburg Texas to Dallas made me reminisce the sight of immense wind turbines silhouetted against the Texas skies on our way back from our holiday vacation in Cloudcroft New Mexico.

Hello world!

Impetus of Change

The Big Three US automakers’ push toward green – seems to be too much too late, too little, or too late. Many years ago the “big three” had a choice to make a risk, redesigning their cars based on a technology at that time was just in its infancy. Foreign car makers like Toyota took the risk, but the Big Three did not. They are now taking the blows of the ramification of not taking the risk. Today, it is our chance to take the same risk not only for the future of our children, but also for the future of our country and the whole world. This is not the time for us to wait and see. This is the time for action. I volunteered and campaigned for Barack Obama because of his vision for the future. In his inaugural address, President Obama called on us to utilize our wind and solar resources to generate electricity. The U.S. wind corridor is a huge swath of the Great Plains which runs, two states wide, from northern Texas to the Canadian border. The time is now; the time is now for us to forget the past, drop our political ideology, the time is now to make the move for America. ”The real impetus of change is our openness to accept the evolution of our common conviction that it is not about what a party could do for our country, but what we could do together as a nation.” Every dream comes from a speck of hope. It is through hope where we gain our strength to make a change. Then it is through change where we can make this country great again.
