Our President deserves our Unquestioning Support, especially in wartime. Do not make common cause with hippies and communists who hate the American Way of Life. The fruits of the earth are given to us to enjoy. The Second Coming is near; what is the point of conserving?

    Any Volunteers

    Do you think we could spare several regular contributors of this forum to the "President's Energy Council? I think they could use a refresher in what conservation really means.
    They currently seem to think that conserve only applies to the profits of oil companies,dinosaur auto manufacturers and others who benefit from their distorted view of conservation.
    This forum has some of the best true conservation minded participants I know. We keep current on new trends and new technologies and are willing to apply them as soon as they become cost effective and practical.
    I know that Dan and others don't just go to Europe to enjoy the beer and great food(does'nt hurt though)! They go into boiler rooms and heating equipment rooms to physically see,feel and even act stupid about the advanced heatng systems used in Europe.
    I am sure we could apply some of this practical sense to other users of our precious resources.Maybe practical is the key word here, when is the last time you found a practical politician???

    Interesting ad

    From the New York Times:

    David J. O'Riley, Chairman & CEO, Chevron Corp.

    Energy will be one of the defining issues of this century. One thing is clear: the era of easy oil is over. What we all do next will determine how well we meet the energy needs of the entire world in this century and beyond.

    He goes on to talk about how "demand is soaring" and that "in 20 years the world will consume 40% more oil than it does today. At the same time, many of the world's oil and gas fields are maturing."

    It goes on, but you get the drift. Now, if the CEO of an oil co is saying these things in the NYT, that's news!

    I'd be happy to help...

    ... even if my experience has more to do with setting energy efficiency standards than actually installing appliances.

    The "strategic plan" that was recently posted is certainly an eye-opener.

    Yes

    I saw a Chevron ad on TV that said the same thing. The oil companies, at least Chevron are breaking the news to the public. I hope the public responds. I went to the Solar Decathalon yesterday. It was very crowded. Long lines into every house. I only got into 5 of the 17 houses. Very cool stuff. I talked to many college students who were excited about what they were doing and interested in what I had to say. I wish more could be seen sometimes. Rhode Islands system had a thermal mass tank under the house filled with phase change salts. You couldnt see it, but it was there. One place was running off a hydrogen fuel cell, but I didn't get in to see it. Lots of evacuated tube collectors and PV panels. WW

    Wahoooooo

    I'm taking off in just a few minutes for the Solar Decathlon. Can't wait to see what they have done with the technology.

    I saw the Chevron ad, a full two-page ad no less, due to Mike having picked it for his Creative Writing class in college. He's home on fall break & we had a chance to catch up with each other's endeavors yesterday. I was delighted that he'd picked the ad and its subject for his paper.

    I see lots of hope in that our youth are facing these issues - with the typical energy youth-full minds posses. I also see tons of opportunity for contractors to move things forward in a responsible manner while our political leaders spend time (years) debating the merits of high efficiency and renewable energy.
