Kevin's Place It Takes a Turbine

Kevin's Place: "Doing just a sampling the build out would take the next decade to build out if all gasoline and transportation fuels were exchanged for hydrogen.  A workforce just for the turbines and electrolyzers would be 7,500,000 workers and to handle replacement parts and maintenance as well the workforce over that same time period would add an additional 1,500,000 workers.

"To also replace the nuclear, natural gas, coal fired energy generation would add an additional 2,750,000 workers over the next decade of build out.  Many more jobs with grid build out and new connections would benefit as well.

"These estimations are also adding additional workforce for the establishment of localized energy storage of ammonia systems to support baseline and overage during peak power periods to avoid blackouts and brownouts.

"To also include all the workforce to convert the cars, trucks and other transportation over to hydrogen would involve additional millions of workers.  In the end the USA would be totally energy independent with power generated locally and monies from that generation and workforce spent within the US., greatly expanding our economy and preserving our way of life and for that of our children and our children's children."

I have this image of turbines as a universal means of generating all the clean energy the world needs.  I am not a scientist but I know about scientific method and anything that would work deserves a chance to be proved out. Maybe some future First Lady will wrote a book called It Takes a Turbine.

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis
The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
