      I assure you the purpose of Houston Renewable Energy Group and our YahooGroup is to advance renewable energy.  It’s great to have you as part of the group and I hope we keep it that way.  We do ban people for going too far off topic and remind people from time to time not to put down others.  But we don’t (can’t) moderate each message from over 400 members, so sometime passions show.


      Thanks for the reminder.  We have members from all faiths and political parties and we must remember to respect that.  We are united in believing that renewable energy is smart.  Even President Bush acknowledged that in his speech an hour ago (“solar, wind”).  [Let’s just hope Congress forgets the part about clean coal and nuclear.]  J




      P.S. I’m not totally opposed to R&D on “clean coal” and cautious limited use of nuclear, but let’s give the smart RE solution a better try first.

      My name is Phillip Hamilton.  I am relatively new to the group,  I have been getting the emails for only a few months and have not posted much other than questions because I am a student and still learning about the industry.  I hope when I graduate to build my experience and save my money so that I can start a small business primarily devoted to the advancement of renewable energy technology.  I have found this forum very interesting and helpful for technical guidance and I appreciate being informed of the relevant political issues even if I am unable to travel to Austin to participate.   I hope to attend the meeting on sunday but my thesis defense is very near and I am not sure my advisor will give me the afternoon off. 


      I appreciate the people that have put this together and it seems like a good path for the advancement of renewable energy and protection of our environment, two things I feel strongly about and would like to be a part of.  If however this is going to degenerate into a place where people bad mouth my country and my faith for the advancement of their personal issues, I don't want to be a part of that.  There are numerous political and religious forums for debate of these things but what I am interested in is renewable energy.  If this site is not going to be about renewable energy then please remove me from the list. 




      Phillip Hamilton

      Yes, only in America could the family who laundered money for the Harriman's, who financed Hitler's rise to power and then profited from his hysteria by selling steel to the arms industry, have two family members elected as president under the banner of Christianity, Patriotism and saving Israel as an ally.  Incredible.


      You forgot to mention America 's financial invovlvement in the 'support" of Hitler and the Nazi party.Most major corporation' s and financial institutions profited immensly from the war buildup and brought US out the great depression. The Brits learned at an early stage that you needed a military to guard the pipeline of the natural resource. Suppose you invented an engine that ran on water-what would be your fate in todays society?

      As long as you have the interdependence on militry and energy, you will always have consumption which gives us the evil byproduct of todays crises!

      I found this quote from Winston Churchill, spoken to the English Parliament in 1935.  At that time Hitler began building his military.  England , France and the other European powers could have easily stopped Hitler and prevented World War II, but instead they refused to invest in their own defense and instead looked away until they were overrun.  Today, we are faced with a looming energy crisis.  We can do something now, or wait for the devastating results to force us to action...


      "When the situation was manageable it was neglected, and now that it is thoroughly out of hand, we apply too late the remedies which then might have effected a cure.  There is nothing new in the story.  It is as old as the Sibylline Books.  It falls into that long dismal catalogue of the fruitlessness of experience and the confirmed unteachability of mankind.  Want of foresight, unwillingness to act when action would be simple and effective, lack of clear thinking, confusion of counsel until the emergency comes,  until self-preservation strikes its jarring gong - these are the features which constitute the endless repetition of history."


      Let us not say that we were unteachable.  Let us avoid the slow loss of our living standard until we are slaves to the high cost of energy and suffocating in our own pollution.  Let us take action and preserve the strength of our country by beginning a serious transition to sustainable energy.
