All electricity that ever was or ever
will be...is already here in the form of natural energy. Electricity is the
stuff that keeps electrons orbiting around neutrons. We can't make it; it already
exists and there is a lot of it! 40 years ago when I became a master electrician,
electric power was cheap. Our electric bill was 30 or 40 dollars. I remember
the shock we felt with our first monthly bill in excess of a hundred dollars. Wow, would it be nice to go back to those
For something that exists everywhere,
they sure charge a lot of money. People like Enron have been slipping their hand in our
pockets for too long. Home solar power and
home wind power could put those bad guys in
their proper place.
Power happens when free electrons pop out of their valance and into
the valance of another neutron, crowding its electron out. At the speed of
light, one electron replaces another which replaces another and so on until the last one
in the circuit goes to the place left vacant by the first. This is electric
current and we pay dearly as we use these little electrons to do all sorts of useful
It happens quite naturally
everywhere...all the time. Solar power, wind power, friction of various things
moving against other things generate electrical power. A single bolt of lightning can have
as much as a billion volts of electricity.
We can generate our own renewable energy.
We don’t let mega corporations charge us for the air we
breathe. Why do we let them charge us when wind and solar power abound in our back
yards? We make them rich, and they send
our hard earned dollars to nations that hate us to buy oil which they use to generate
power that exists unused at home.
It's time we harvest that free power
and stop the insane wealth-depleting greed of those mega corporations and the the foreign
nations that are currently draining our financial and political life blood.
