I will be attending the Local Solutions to the Energy Dilemma Conference in NYC from April 27-29th. I encourage others on the east coast, and others with the means to travel to attend this conference. There is a incredible line-up of peak oil experts lecturing, as well as others focusing on sustainability, permaculture, alternative transportation and renewable energy. The schedule has been released and is available HERE. Check out more information on the speakers, and register for the conference HERE.

I will be posting updates from the conference, as well as a full run down when I get back and have time to digest it all. It is a jam packed schedule and a wealth of information on the energy crisis we face, and how we can prepare ourselves and our community for the future.(Going to be at the conference? Drop me an email at baloghblog [at] gmail [dot] com.)

I wonder how many people will drive 200 miles there in an SUV.

Many say we will see $3.50/gal this summer. If you factor in Iran, who knows how high it could go. Everyone knows America MUST get off the oil. After September 11, 2001 I expected our President to call on Americans to GET OFF THE OIL. I was expecting a speech like the one JFK gave that motivated us to reach for the moon. As you know, this never happened. Eventually I realized that the only way this is going to happen is for us to do it ourselves. To that end I created this idea and have been trying to make it a reality..

The EPA is offering a research grant opportunity that I believe is a perfect fit for this idea. I have sent an e-mail to a hand picked list of university professors who have experience with government research projects. I’m looking to form a research team to apply for the EPA grant, conduct a social-economic experiment and surveys to determine to what extent the American public will support it, project the economic potential of WPH, and identify logistical, social and political obstacles as well as opportunities.

All government grants are awarded based on merit of the proposed research. I believe WPH has merit but your help is needed to verify it. You can help by posting your feedback. Let the professors and the EPA know what you think about WPH. Do you think this idea is worth pursuing? We need to know if Americans will support a plan like this.

Do you have any ideas to improve the plan?

Share any and all of your thoughts.

Tell your friends and family about this Blog post and ask them to post their thoughts on WPH
