We hear a lot about Energy Independence these days and Clean Energy Solutions,
EarthRehab’s Founder expresses his views on the subject at hand.
I do not want to pay to be on a Grid system for Electricity any more.
I believe that with the proper stimulus package to help homeowners afford Wind and Solar technologies they would use to “get off the grid“, most citizens would be interested provided if they could sell the unused energies back to “the Grid”.
This type of energy system is a win-win for all. Reduce the need for Power Plants and the CO2 and Pollution that Power Plants create. I do not believe that Wind and Solar farms are a proper habitat for Nature or Agriculture Areas much less for un-developed properties.
If you own a 2-Acre lot you should be encouraged to own or lease 1 Wind Power station and a Solar Electricity Station for your residence that would reduce your impact on the Grid, or remove you from it entirely
If you have less property than 2 Acres you should be encouraged to own or lease a Solar Power Unit that would reduce your impact on the Grid, or remove you from it entirely.
Next would be the Transportation issue:
Technology should be created so that Bio Mass and Solar Power could be utilized in an Electric Fuel Cell vehicle so that you would never have to fuel your vehicle again and the Excess Power could be transferred to your Energy Independent Residence for distribution, possibly sold back to the Grid.
The Local Utilities (FPL) and the Federal Government should maintain inspections and insurance for all Power Equipment in case a Natural Disaster (Hurricanes and such), or the Greed factor should occur.
I posted a lot this past April and May 2008 regarding Florida’s Water Pollution issue on GreenReality; the politics of Green.
The politics of Green is EarthRehab’s political web-site, feel free to express your concerns.
Topic’s like The Clean Water Act, Pollution Pipes just off the coast, Water Quality Monitoring, TMDL, Pollution Reporting, and the Endangered Species Act vs. Beach Erosion and Renourishment.

Right in My Backyard
Water Restrictions continue to plague my neighborhood; and one thing has got me confused.
I have been studying TMDL and WQMS for some time.
I own a home in North Palm Beach County and I have been told that I will face a higher water bill for water that I do not consume. Basically the cost is to water down the pollution and sewage that development and bad decisions have created.
Lets face the facts:
We are being surcharged for mistakes.
We are being sanctioned for future profits from agriculture for energy and development.
We owe it to Florida to expose these facts, and understand the consequences.
When politicians celebrate Any Energy Decision without understanding the consequence I could get sick, instantly.
When our Ocean Eco-systems cease to operate with efficiency we will all pay a fatal price.
Protect the Ocean Eco-systems and stop un-necessary polluting today.

Marine Preserve from coastline to 90 ft. for SouthEast Florida proposal.

The federal government is now proposing to declare an extensive protected area for the two species from the coasts of Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties through the Florida Keys to the U.S. islands of the Caribbean.
Designation of the 4,931-square-mile area could affect plans for beach-widening, port expansions, sewage discharges, ship anchoring and other coastal activities. Although it is unlikely to halt them, it would add a layer of scrutiny that could force changes or relocations to avoid harming the corals, said Sarah Heberling, natural resource specialist for the National Marine Fisheries Service

Critical Habitat designation Proposed to protect threatened Florida Corals
Under the Endangered Species Act the federal government has proposed designating almost 5,000 square miles of reef area off the coasts of Florida, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands as critical habitat for the protection of threatened Staghorn and Elkhorn corals. The area includes all coastal waters in Palm Beach County from the beach out to 90 feet deep.
Critical habitat is one of the most important safety nets for wildlife listed under the Endangered Species Act, said Miyoko Sakashita, attorney with the Center for Biological Diversity.
A public hearing will be held on the proposal Tuesday, March 4, 7-9 p.m. at the International Game Fish Association, 300 Gulf Stream Way, Dania Beach.
EarthRehab’s William will attend “said” meeting and keep this thread posted of the outfalls.
