Since I live in Florida, the acknowledged Sunshine State, perhaps it is up to me to start pushing for solar power. The state and local communities would be a great place to start I think. Just imagine if there were no electric bills for all of those offices, jails, libraries and other government offices. This alone could lower taxes all around the state both sales and property taxes, is it possible that is a bad thing? Could it be that I'm the only one who has thought of it? And this would bring about less dependence on both foreign and domestic oil and bring all of our residents cleaner air.

And while we're at it, why not start building cars with built in solar panels on the roof or trunk. Have I gone too far? I think not. Offer large one time only tax breaks for private citizens and business' for installing solar panels as an incentive for installing them. Sounds like a win-win situation to me.This would also create new jobs to manufacture and install these units and show the rest of the country what we are made of and maybe start a revolution of revitalization in America.

And then there are those wind mills. One hurricane or even a near miss would probably light up the state for a month. We have the technology at our disposal, why not put it to good use. Big oil could fight us every step of the way or they could use some of those windfall profits to get behind us and clean up their names at the same time. Give the Ozone a chance to heal it self with our help and make this a better world for all of us.And just think of the help we could extend to third world countries, give them free electricity and build a better world for them. What would you give to know that some how you were building a better world by maybe just starting a letter writing campaign or collecting signatures to send to your government representatives.

The world, this planet we call home, deserves a chance and we can do it, one person at a time.

Just thinking out loud, what are your thoughts?
