If you're looking for a way to honor all of those we have lost since 9/11, the victims of that horrible day along with the courageous members of our armed services who were pressed into duty as a result, then consider taking the time to write a note today to your state's Senators and Members of Congress. Press them to demonstrate leadership on the issue of energy independence. Don't be naive and think that our entire way of life does not have very strong dependence on this issue. Urge them to stop leading this country into economic disaster. And if your political persuasion allows it, ask for market based incentives to create competition where ever possible. For example, with batteries, ask for tax credits based on energy density and longevity....paid for by a battery tax on imported oil.
