America’s Energy Policy – Tap Congressional Heat!

April 9, 2011

Contrary to what many thought, America now has a cohesive and possibly the most cost-effective long-term energy policy. This new American Energy Policy (“AEP”) was clearly demonstrated and developed this week by Congress and the Executive Branch in their efforts to keep the government going.

AEP calls for converting the vast quantities of wasted and useless heat generated by the Legislative and Executive branches into a usable form of energy. Under AEP, America’s need for additional nuclear, fossil fuel and renewable energy power generation would be a moot point.

AEP solves a significant problem and is relatively simple and achievable. It is risk-free. No technological innovations are needed for implementation. There are no requirements for large sums of money to be thrown widely and blindly for some future endeavor. As AEP spreads to the state and local levels, job creations throughout America will skyrocket for the foreseeable future. Sounds almost too good to be true!

Technically, AEP legislates the building of adiabatic enclosures, Politician Containment Systems “(PCS”), around the White House and Capitol Hill. The PCS would function like the front-end of any traditional power generation station. Furthermore, this policy would leverage off America’s current electric destruction system with easy access into the grid. Additional power generation capacity would be added almost for free. All components of the PCS are currently available off-the-shelf. No R&D and Development expenditures will be required to launch AEP.

One would ask why Congress and the White House would approve such measures. The answer is plain and simple. Tack it on to a military appropriation, job creation, oil industry, or farm subsidy bill. Fearing the loss at the next election, the measure will pass hands down.

As long as politicians exist on earth, this approach will please those concerned about America’s energy security and environmental stewardship – dependence on foreign oil and climate change. There is an almost endless supply of politicians, who are eager to backfill losses as they occur, be it a Democrat, Republican or Tea Partyite. The IRS would be requested to consider politicians, when contained in the manner prescribed above, to be a renewable and sustainable source of energy.  Therefore, eligible contractors would qualify for federal tax credits or grants. AEP brings renewable and sustainable energy to the forefront of American’s long-term energy strategy.

The Judicial Branch being so small and dispersed would not be included in Phase I. Later on it would make sense to enclose their chambers in order to extract the last bit of wasted energy from the federal government. Just on general principals, the public would be safeguarded from justices, judges and attorneys who at times appear to be self-serving and contradictory.

Serendipitously, PCSs would also dramatically attenuate the noise levels generated by these branches of government. Noise levels outside the enclosures would not exceed values established to protect public health and welfare. Net results would be compliance to the most stringent permissible noise level regulations from the EPA and OSHA.

Potentially, enclosing and converting heat generated by the branches of the U.S. government, may have one key drawback. That being the effect on the environment! It could be argued, like nuclear waste, the politician derived solid waste (“PSW”) products would be highly concentrated, toxic and hazardous. Conventional disposal methods would be ineffective. Nerveless, with a minor increase in cost, PSW can be converted to energy by incorporating pyrolitic or plasma discharge gasification systems, which can also be a source of energy.

Additionally, gas collection technology developed by the dairy industry to ameliorate the effect of cow flatulence can be incorporated into the containment system. This would control political gaseous emissions (“PGE”) and odors. PGE consist of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane. Lacking formal scientist studies, analysis and peer reviews, it is supported by conventional wisdom, that politicians generate a far greater percentage of flatulence per person than the general public. By eliminating the dissipation of PGE into the atmosphere, anthropogenic induced climate change would be less of a concern.

The final consideration is the cost of AEP. While a commission of independent financial analysts from Wall Street selected for their contribution to the recent economic collapse, studies the cost requirements and ramifications, it is fair to say that the benefits will vastly exceed the costs.

In closing, of their own accord, our leaders have finally justified their existence for the good of the America people and the world.

    While your proposal sounds attractive on the surface, it has one major flaw. Politicians have no intrinsic energy, their heat capacity is zero, they actually channel our energy through zero point conduits and express it in the form of noise and hot air. While the Adiabatic chambers may capture this energy (if you run a simple Carnot Cycle theoretical efficiency calculation you will see that at best an 8% efficiency could be attained due to the low temperature), this process would eventually drain us of all energy.

    On the other hand, the very lucrative contracts given to ABC Adiabatic Containers Inc., funded by Goldman Sacks would create yet another layer of executive bonusses and Goldman commissions paid by taxpayer funds.

    As bad as the system is, let’s try to get better politicians…
