Retrofitting America's Roaming Mixed Energy Use Industrial Empire.

An Open Letter To President Obama

Dear Mr. President
"Rome Wasn't Built In A Day."
This saying has been referred to for centuries by leaders who have had dreams of building a better Rome, but, for one reason or another, found their dreams somewhat delayed due primarily to the fact that they were simply lacking in sustainable or comprehensive forward thinking industrial and economic knowledge that was required of that leader to execute.
As the first day was spent envisioning among many things, how buildings were constructed to take advantage of the sun, viaducts were constructed to carry water and roads were built to refine and improve ancient and arduous human pathways, as all of this took place on the first day, and, as many people benefited from the inspired vision such improvements made in the Roman Empire on that first day, the second day occurred, and, of course, the actions or inactions of that second day leadership ultimately led to not only the collapse of one empire but the remarkable emergence of another that was indeed even stronger and more prolific than the first. 
This is your second day Mr. President.

As it is, understanding climate change and building the American industries that redefine our relationship with traditional energy sources is, as you clearly state, quite crucial to the continued growth of whole, mixed energy based industrial economic activity here in our America. Whereas no one can dispute our collective national need to redefine our national energy policy, obviously every inch of that policy framework is being aggressively argued. As I am quite certain that such argument is driving you nuts, please let me suggest that the reason for such argument lies simply in the approach to our overall nationwide energy conversation.
Whereas your administration is all about establishing carbon standards from which all traditional national energy providers are regulated from an emissions standpoint, and, of course all major national energy providers are reacting to such regulation in a variety of either favorable or unfavorable ways, the larger issue remains how, within this top down federal energy based regulatory framework, do we as a nation find the funding that will incorporate green based energy sectors such as solar, wind and geothermal with fossil fuel based energy sectors for the clearly stated purpose of funding nationwide public/private based power and heating as well as transportation based infrastructure improvements.
As such overall domestic carbon based infrastructure improvement models are most capable of being realized, I must insist Mr. President that your top down regulatory approach to attaining such a goal is totally incapable of realizing that perhaps, a much more substantive bottoms up approach to that same carbon based regulatory goal might also be available and in fact much more easily achieved.
If I can put the above few paragraphs into a contemporary and positive American 21st century industrial and economic perspective, let me suggest two future scenarios that may or may not occur at the end of your second day or second term as our American president just two years from now.
As both of these perspectives have to do with comprehensive restructuring of our nation's public utility power grid, comprehensive restructuring of our nation's transportation grid, comprehensive restructuring of our nation's municipal fresh water, waste water and rain water infrastructure, and equally comprehensive restructuring of our nation's building codes, the positive first scenario outlined below is what I am quite capable of helping your administration blueprint from a quite sound industrial and economic framework. As this scenario defines the reconstruction and energy retrofitting of every piece of existing American residential architecture on an exciting nationwide house by house, block by block, neighborhood by neighborhood level, the simultaneous integration of all of the aforementioned infrastructure into virtually every community in our United States Of America will most logically and decisively be the outcome as such integration simply takes the economic pressures off of our big block energy providers and spreads the carbon management model  evenly throughout our entire nationwide neighborhood by neighborhood oriented mixed energy use framework.  
Thank you for your time Mr. President, and, please read on.
The 2017 Green Chicago Whitehouse Interior Geothermal Energy And Rainwater Management Model.
As you and Michelle will leave the White House and perhaps move back to your home in Chicago in 2017 and given the fact that you guys have children, a mother in law and most likely boxes and boxes of "stuff", you also have a massive amount of Secret Service trained "house movers" that will help all of you unpack your "stuff". As I suppose this whole moving back to Chicago experience will go quite smoothly on one hand, it is what you do in the next two years that will determine how well or perhaps how happily these guys from the Secret Service unpack your boxes. If you manage to accomplish a large portion of your tremendously positive American Mixed Energy Vision, these guys will probably be happy as will all of you and everyone else in America.

Think about the following thoughts for a minute Mr. President.
If you and your wife, your daughters, your mother in law and the two puppies were to move back into the Chicago home that all of you left five years ago, would the green visions you compelled all of America to prescribe to five years ago on the campaign trail be obviously known within the remarkably green architectural footprint of your private home dwelling? In turn, would the architectural American energy renaissance found in your Chicago White House be mirrored inside and outside of the homes of all of your next door neighbors?

Will you and Michelle have a basement that is heated by geothermal energy?

I mean let's face it Mr. President, Chicago basements just by their geographical location are among our nation's coldest and dampest during the winter months. Would comprehensive reregulation of Chicago's building codes that demand strict incorporation of geothermal energy technology specific to Chicago basements support a much more articulate model of mixed national energy policy?

How many jobs will unfold as a result.

Are the water supply lines in your home connected to advanced micro engineered public water utility infrastructure?

Well, there is fresh water filtration that assures a continued supply of healthy drinking and cooking water managed by neighborhood based filtration plants as opposed to single source municipal water treatment facilities.

And, then there is the creation of jobs.

Is there an intelligent interface between the rainwater that drops on your roof and the ground water that flows atop and beneath the surface of the soils surrounding your Chicago Based White House (er, greenhouse home)?

I mean seriously Barack, the last time I saw you, you were walking out of your Chicago based home amidst a medium rain shower dressed in a raincoat holding a basketball on your way to the gym. As life at times, unfortunately gets in the way of our leisure activity, just as you were leaving the house, Michelle came out from the garage with a leaf rake only to remind you that water from poorly placed downspouts was entering into you ancient basement foundation. As neither of the two of you appeared to be too happy, I will under oath testify before Congress that you did indeed put down the basketball, take the leaf rake Michelle handed you and along with Chicago municipal workers raked away the leaves and debris that had accumulated around your downspouts and the storm water drains located in front of your Chicago White House (er, greenhouse home).

Given you penchant for discussing global environmental topics Mr. President, I found it quite uplifting that after the storm water drains were cleared, the guys from the city and you went off to play basketball only after all of you sat down and developed a citywide model for redeveloping storm water management and harvesting models that were quite pertinent to the reduction of costs associated with city services on one hand, brought forward new private and public sector rainwater management industrial growth models for the City of Chicago on another, and then of course, created new jobs.  
As within the above mentioned mixed use water management interface there an clear models for advanced public utility water management, what is crucial to understand here is that all forms of water management are both fully capable of being built as well as being funded only if all of the private sector industries associated with such water management are brought on line in unison with the regulations deemed necessary to foster this industrial growth. In other words, while it is a given that storm water runoff is clearly a drain on our cities' existing municipal budgets, progressively directed neighborhood based rain water management leads to substantial new definitions of issues such as residential and community based garden irrigation, storm water retention and the subsequent development of geothermal based extraction of heat drawn from such storm water management sectors none of which can be realized without substantial restructuring of our nation's building codes on a task specific city by city and, of course region by region water management policy.
Having stated the above, are there federal and state and local regulatory management authorities that if properly restructured and funded in part by private sector, labor intensive manufacturing and construction trades profiting from the holistic development of these new 21st century water management and geothermal energy technologies? Do such entities, once thoroughly blueprinted produce entirely new public utility models? The answer of course is a resounding yes, but only if such authority is defined on a community by community level. As Chicago with its' damp basements will benefit from the subterranean basement based utilization of geothermal heat generating technologies, Saint Louis, Missouri will have perhaps an entirely different set of management criteria. Yet if all criteria nationwide is benchmarked from within a rather fundamental national need to rebuild our entire storm water management and applied geothermal management model and all such models are ultimately applied to every single home in every single community nationwide, needless to say the economic growth attributed to such environmental management would be quite extraordinary.   
The 2017 Green Chicago Whitehouse Exterior Geothermal Energy, Snow Removal and Urban Agricultural Model. 
Once the highly skilled Secret Service Moving Agents place and unpack your boxes in the basement, Mr. President, the question in one part becomes, what do these guys do with the wine collection you and Michelle have accumulated over the past eight years of living in the Washington DC White House. Do they place the collection in an arid, temperature controlled basement wine cellar?
If in fact wine placement in your basement becomes a fact after 2017, does not the issue of positively regulating local and regionally nurtured vineyards for the sake of truly broader domestic agricultural economic enrichment come into play as would the same enrichment of regional organic garden produce grown in urban garden settings irrigated by filtered rainwater?

Would such regulation create more "jobs"?

Before we get to the above query, let's look at Applied Exterior Geothermal Technology.
As the Secret Service agents finish unpacking your basement boxes Mr. President, and, as they move up to the main floor of your Chicago home, and, as they will undoubtedly be doing so in February of 2017, most likely they will being doing so in the midst of a typically cold and unfriendly Chicago winter climate. While I am quite certain that you and Michelle will greet these guys with open and loving and helpful arms, the question becomes not about how much you love these guys, but how you Mr. President, were able to enact federal, state and local legislation that tied the geothermal heat source installed in your basement next to the wine cellar to the concrete sidewalk and stairs leading up to your Chicago White House while you and Michelle were living in the Washington DC White House. If the sidewalks and stairs are heated by the geothermal energy source coming from the basement, and, while, Secret Service agents are highly trained in martial arts and quite agile on their feet, the question becomes, what good is a Secret Service Agent with a broken ankle,( even with Obama Care) if the sidewalk itself is not protected by our broader, national healthcare, municipal building code, public and private based accident avoidance mandate that demands of us the heating of both public and private sidewalks for the specific purpose of melting ice and snow through the utilization of geothermal energy management technologies while in the same breath building the industries that create the high tech jobs for ex Secret Service Snow Shovelers' and their equally educated children?
As such public sidewalk heating technology is in operation in but a handful of cities in our American snow belt hemisphere, the fact that snow falls and temperatures drop throughout a significant portion of our northern American nation every winter should enable us as a nation to define seasonal geothermal sidewalk heating as an altogether new public utility infrastructure model. Working in unison with our progressive urban rainwater management model and our equally progressive urban organic farming model have we not created a remarkable array of new and clearly sustainable industrial entities that create jobs?
If you notice that I am not bringing into the urban organic farming model any such discussion on the interrelationship such urban farm models have with our national and international global based agricultural model, the reason for this is that such relationships are fundamentally separate from one another. As they are, and, this essay is about clearly defining entirely new industrial roles that are emerging within our residential based urban, mixed energy use public infrastructure models, it is essentially imperative that we as a nation discipline ourselves to stay within the limited scope of the aforementioned models in order for all other mixed energy models to come on line as well.
The 2017 Green Chicago Whitehouse Emerging Geothermal Energy And Natural Gas Use and Distribution Model. 
First Floor Residential Natural Gas Modeling. 
Given the fact that American energy corporations have been able to develop some rather advanced and clearly exciting natural gas recovery technologies, and, given the fact that such advancements have enabled us as a nation to elevate our global energy presence on a clearly new geopolitical framework, understanding that the need we have to establish the long term protectionist economic outcome of our national output and disbursement of natural gas is quite crucial to our broader nationwide energy management goals as well.
Having stated the above Mr. President, there are clearly definable architectural areas within any typical American home where natural gas can and should be utilized whereas there are as well other areas within our American homes where these technologies should not, in any definitive manner whatsoever, be allowed at all. Thus, to suggest that natural gas be utilized exclusively to heat an entire old and outdated Chicago home, ignores on quite the grand scale, the very fundamentals of your original mixed energy use and domestic American public utility sector campaign blueprint,  and, as we know natural gas is today in 2014, a highly articulated and highly diversified energy source, as we know the energy production model of our natural gas infrastructure has a variety of global geopolitical benefits that are clearly enabling our nation to put forth an exciting new set of worldwide energy products derived from our domestic natural gas harvesting potential, all of which can be exported, limits of it's overall defined use here within our own borders must be clearly understood and adhered to before any safe and secure natural gas financial export models can be put safely into place globally.
As within such domestic based natural gas consumption modeling emerges a rather strict, national building code mandated definition of its' residential use, definitions of equally advanced  industrial and transportation based use of our natural gas commodity exists as well. As we know here in our advanced 21st century America that geothermal energy can be utilized to keep the basements of our homes within a remarkable and constant and quite comfortable as well as affordable year round temperature range, we also know that natural gas can do the same if installed logistically into the first floor of our homes and do so within the same architectural footprint of the homes we live in either in Washington DC or Chicago or anywhere else in our America.
If then, we discipline ourselves to live within the economic constraints of highly articulated and disciplined domestic fuel source management as such management pertains to residential geothermal and natural gas use, and with basement and first floor architectural re-engineering of energy source management fully understood, the definition of second floor residential energy management technologies comes into play. As these second floor residential energy based technologies are every bit as pertinent as basement and first floor active energy technologies, the nature of second floor residential energy management technologies is much more passive in nature.
Thus, as you Mr. President can come home to Chicago in 2017 knowing that while your basement is managed by specifically articulated geothermal energy technologies and the first floor of your home is being managed by equally articulated natural gas management technologies, both of which, are producing entirely new municipal based public utility models, private/public sector community college based municipal education models as well as long term community based job growth blueprints, what takes place on the second floor of your home adds even more to the basket of urban residential construction based wealth that you Mr. President promised to produce for the entire population of America on your political watch.
The 2017 Green Chicago Whitehouse Second Floor Passive Solar and Integrated Electrical Energy Use and Distribution Model. 
Moving for a moment away from the first floor residential heating aspects of natural gas and the subsequent interrelationship natural gas has with basement based geothermal energy and acknowledging the industrial development issues that exist between the typical Chicago based basement and the typical residential first floor are indeed well worth considering, the second floor energy management model of Chicago based residential architecture is as well. While a bit more complex, this model is much more compelling as such a model integrates not only all of the energy dynamics occurring on the floors below but the energy dynamics of the roof above while also integrating prevailing climate conditions that exist at Chicago's tree top level yet exist in an entirely different manner at Chicago's garden (or earth) level. As harnessing virtually all of this energy activity enables us as a collective nation of well educated architects, engineers and tradespeople to fully implement a remarkable array of new 21st century municipal based micro-based public utilities, ii does as well enable a quite dynamic residential renovation (home construction) and energy retrofit model (advanced engineered home construction) to grow in virtually every single community in our entire United States simultaneously. In the process of doing all the above, such mixed use municipal implementation of highly manageable micro energy grids clearly takes the financial burden off of our traditional fossil fuel based market economy on both a domestic and global level.   
As the historic second floor American residential architectural footprint has always been about the construction of libraries, studies, bedrooms and bathing environments, the greater social blueprint of our American residential second floor environments has always been about peaceful, reflective silence. Whereas the basement has always been about organic knuckle crunching and scientific residential American inventiveness and some rather basic American mechanical problem solving (go to the basement and fetch a pipe wrench son), the first floor has always been about food preparation and socializing. From a historical perspective the energy infrastructure that once served every floor of our residential housing nation has consistently been based upon either the heat generated from the kitchen stove or the heat generated from the central furnace, water delivered from a single well or lead pipe coming from a municipal water source, sewerage leaving the home via a single drain pipe and electricity and telephone coming from a few wires suspended from a utility pole located several yards from the house and anchored to the house by either three glass insulators or one galvanized metal strap. Whereas the above residential utility provider blueprint was once (120 or so years ago) consider remarkably brilliant and exciting, and, as over the course of what seems to be centuries (although it has only been decades) simple pipes and electrical wires continue to connect our residential housing sector to industrial energy providers, there is no doubt that our in place utility below ground and above ground public utility infrastructure is in dire need of replacement. As it is, and, as we have developed advanced in ground energy technologies and advanced management of in ground mixed energy provider sources we have as well developed equally advanced above ground mixed energy provider sources all of which are being developed on a nationwide industrial level but not on a community based municipal level. While all of this technology is clearly emerging, the model for financing the installation of all of these new municipal technologies is for the most part still based upon regulatory initiatives that are as old as the infrastructure it once effectively managed. As we all clearly know that legislative politics is and has been crippling our national capacity to incorporate all of these new municipal based micro-mixed energy sources from being applied, the fact of the matter is that these new municipal based micro-mixed energy sources must be applied.
As you, Mr. President, are fully aware of the fact that such issues as the approval of the Keystone pipeline has an  impact on our entire national environmental protection model, and, as I sense that you are equally tuned to the broader energy and economic issues facing a nation of a growing industrial manufacturing job loss and subsequent loss of community by community based residential, renovation and retrofitting construction trade jobs, the greater American industrial question is then not the approval or disapproval of the Keystone pipeline that will essentially travel the short distance measured by our northwestern American Canadian border down to eastern Nebraska, then down to Louisiana that will upon both construction and operation work with retrofitted American refineries to secure heavy industrial sector jobs related to this pipeline, but, how the subsequent (or simultaneous) installation of tens of thousand of miles of individual municipal based geothermal pipelines, underground electric conduits, underground rainwater water viaducts, fresh water supply lines, waste water disbursement lines and advanced underground communication conduits will produce a that much more expansive American Job Growth Policy.

Quite unfortunately, Mr. President, it remains the broader question of financing all of the above that must ultimately be flawlessly answered, defined, regulated and executed by a unified Congress and Senate and signed into law by a unifying American president.
Having stated the above, I am convinced that the reason you are meeting with such overarching political push back here in our America is your obsessive insistence with establishing a global carbon credit standard. As such a standard is entirely valid and well worth the efforts you have put into it's development, other issues that ultimately will define our nation's overall energy management policy and therefore fully validate the whole progressive principle of carbon credit standards remain quite structurally unresolved. As virtually all of these issues pertain to a rather certain disconnect between our nation's energy providers and our nation's municipalities, they in turn exist as a rather significantly negative economic wedge between the aforementioned energy providers and the municipalities that are managed by more or less ineffectual  federal regulatory agencies that were designed initially to wage environmental war on polluting industries on behalf of municipalities rather than giving positive future oriented proactive and engaging educational and economic development based guidance to either the industry or the municipality. As the path towards rectifying these now all too ancient environmental wars leads directly to the hundreds of thousands of outdated residential dwellings Americans call home, establishing an entirely new educational/regulatory dialog from which progressive carbon credit standardization develops is directly related to substantial energy retrofitting of both our stock of American residential housing and the municipal infrastructure needed to support this crucial, nationwide housing renovation imperative.

Getting back to the discussion about your 2017 Green Chicago Whitehouse Transitional Second Floor Passive Solar and Integrated Electrical Energy Use and Distribution Model
The second floor of a progressively retrofitted and re-engineered American residential dwelling should essentially be defined as a physical space that for the most part, does not necessarily need an active heating source if in fact the proper public utility energy technologies were installed beneath as well as above the second floor. Relying instead on highly efficient use of advanced engineered building products as well as both passive solar retention and passive/active internal wind turbine ventilation construction methodologies, the second floor of a fully retrofitted American residential architectural environment, if established within the proper legislative framework (Progressive American Building Codes),  would most likely become one of the most tangible architectural areas that, universally, across our entire America, "Carbon Credits" could most effectively be applied on a residence by residence, and, of course neighborhood by neighborhood domestic economic energy framework. Thus, as the notion of having a major multi-national oil pipeline running through our American bedrooms is absolutely absurd, knowing that micro pipelines connected to geothermal and natural gas management heat source technologies below the second floor, while knowing as well, that active solar and wind generated electrical generation technologies are occurring on the roof above the second floor is in fact a quite viable definition of yet altogether new definitions of community centered and regionally managed micro- public utility grid sharing concepts that again if a carbon trading standard were applied at this local level, such a standard would easily enable our nation to expand this standard upward into regional energy production carbon standards then to national energy based carbon standard regulation, and, of course, finally to global geopolitical carbon standards that would ultimately frame an entirely new domestic American discussion over the strength the US dollar has the capacity to maintain our much broader petrodollar presence.    
As the primary reason for such domestic industrial disorder is the fact that we as a nation live in homes designed and built in several separate periods of American architectural history, and, as such architectural development spread quite haphazardly across our American nation as we slowly advanced equally haphazard public utility technologies, we also know that regardless of this haphazard national wandering that the original placement of the home we now live in was placed where it was placed for certain geographical reasons. From one historically based set of industrial building placement histories or another, the first home placed in any specific region in our nation was naturally set on a piece of land for the purpose of maximizing the benefits of the sun, maximizing the benefits of obtaining water from the land, keeping the home protected from prevailing winds and locating that home within a proximity to local, regional and national traffic corridors . As time went on and homes grew around homes communities emerged. As I am not saying anything here that anyone doesn't already know and as literally centuries have passed and today we have houses upon houses stacked upon houses upon houses, we still essentially have houses exposed to the sun that need water and are faced with dealing with the wind while also needing to be connected to both a public utility and public transportation grid. While again, nothing about what I just said is seemingly at all new, what is most assuredly new is that for the first time in our nation's industrial history we are utilizing the word "grid" as opposed to utilizing the word well or stream or creek or river or municipal water treatment facility when discussing say, the needs a given sector of a given community has for equally varying needs or definitions of how we use and manage water, and, the subsequent need we as a nation have to define broad based regional and national water management industrial and economic interconnectivity.
Having stated the above, and it is indeed then the grid that in our 2014 industrial era defines the framework of needs any given home requires, the home is actually connected to several grids within its own architectural footprint as it is as well connected to several grids connecting it to the house next door as it is connected to the houses in the neighborhood as it is connected to the houses in the community as the community is connected to other communities and so on and so forth within our current 2014 nationwide "Grid Based Energy Management Consciousness". 
Within the framework of grid management therefore, lies the initial (or original) natural resource needing whole re management and within the contemporary 2014 definition of resource re management lies the local, state, regional and national fully defined funding mechanisms needed to implement all energy and public utility as well as public transportation infrastructure reconstruction nationwide.
As I referred to natural gas earlier as a highly articulated energy source, and, within that definition, its' use was strictly confined to only the first floor heating of a residential dwelling, there are of course other equally strict natural gas grid frameworks that must be brought forward and are indeed a rather significant extension of our community based natural gas energy grid.
While one of these grid extensions is the use of natural gas as a personal vehicle fuel source, natural gas piping of residential garages that are either adjacent to or physically attached to residential dwellings justify the installation of "Gas Transportation Fueling Stations" located either inside of these residential garages or in close proximity to these garages on a nationally defined urban based and neighborhood oriented natural gas use, consumption and management model.
As the installation of these natural gas residential fueling stations would ultimately be determined by population density and within this determination rural area residentially based house by house installed fueling stations would probably be much more economically advantageous to the economies of rural areas, in urban areas, neighborhood fueling stations would of course, be the same. Either way, our industrial nation becomes that much more "Grid Management Oriented".
Getting a bit deeper into transportation based natural gas use and management, if such management is applied on a strict municipal transportation based level, and, within this natural gas, municipal transportation based grid, all residences nationwide are indeed having their personal transportation needs met in part by natural gas fueling station installations either in their rural homes or their urban neighborhoods, viable funding of neighborhood or community based street improvement projects would of course be one of the end results.
What is truly exciting about this natural gas grid management framework, Mr. President, is that through the restrictive use of natural gas as a heating source for our American homes, and, the equally restrictive use of natural gas for fueling our personal vehicles, we as nation, produce the framework from which community based natural gas micro-electrical generation becomes that much more viable as well, thus, within this framework, again community or regional based, mixed public electric utility grid modeling begins, in quite the logical manner, to unfold financially before us all.
Whereas wind and solar electrical generation are most assuredly viable extensions of our whole mixed electric utility grid, placement of these technologies on a mass scale into that grid is clearly best served if one of the starting points for placement into that grid is again wedded to the whole and significant energy retrofitting of our communities on a house by house basis. Whereas specific regions of our nation are ideally suited for large scale wind and solar farms and many others simply are not, every community in America has ample room for the incorporation of micro wind and solar on either a house by house or block by block or neighborhood by neighborhood framework. As this essay is more or less addressing mixed energy principles as such principles pertain to our residential American housing stock, please note that I am not bothering to incorporate discussions of either commercial or industrial building applications of either wind or solar, which are of course, broader and equally consequential in scope as these architectural entities have an equally definable relationship with our nation's use of natural gas. Either way, the value of such seemingly diminutive residential applications of wind and solar as these technologies are integrated into either local neighborhood grid modeling or slightly larger micro based community or strictly defined mini regional modeling, these two task specific energy sectors once combined in a most comprehensive manner with the equally valued local regulation of natural gas and geothermal technologies, micro management development on strictly municipal levels of these four energy resources combined is simply enormous and classically and historically essential to our overall establishment of new American industrially and municipally based economic growth models on state, regional and nationwide levels.
Going a bit further into this discussion and getting back to the use of natural gas as a personal transportation fueling source, natural gas fueling of commercial based delivery vehicles of manufactured goods into an urban community environment is an obvious and fundamentally sound extension of federal natural gas powered transportation management policy. As it is, the question of why would we send a diesel powered tractor trailer semi loaded with freight into a congested urban environment if in fact we could instead send a lighter duty natural gas powered vehicle into that same urban environment is essentially answered only if on the flip side, the same commercial vehicular energy management model justifies the intelligent integration of bio-diesel fueling of commercial based delivery vehicles, As the broader federally regulated transportation question becomes, why would we send a natural gas powered vehicle 500 miles down an interstate highway to deliver goods between urban and rural communities when in fact we could instead utilize the advanced technologies of both diesel fuel management and natural gas fuel management to produce 250 mile grid based economic transportation funding models of interstate highway improvement instead?
Throwing yet another mixed energy use pickle into our mixed energy use transportation based pickle barrel, electric hybrid vehicles are clearly wanting to scoot about our national economic transportation framework of neighborhood oriented transportation infrastructure. As these vehicles require a plug in electrical generation based public utility infrastructure from which they can be recharged, as this infrastructure is clearly in need of the same focus on federal re-regulation of municipal based domestic energy policy as all other energy sources are, the fact that micro grid blueprinting of residentially based natural gas fuel management modeling has been successfully framed and implemented, and, subsequently, interurban transportation modeling of both natural gas and biodiesel commercial transportation fuel modeling has occurred, the affordable generation of electricity powered be either micro natural gas or micro biodiesel powered electrical generation turbines offset by solar and wind, not to mention geothermal based electrical generation more than offsets the costs associated with improving our urban and rural residential roadways as well as our interstate highway arteries that connect these urban and rural communities via high tech transportation energy grids that are 250 miles or shorter in distance from one another.   
As the answers to these energy based transportation questions remain benchmarked in the ability we as a nation have to focus our entire industrial effort towards rebuilding our nation's residential architecture and through the rebuilding of our nations' residential architecture on a house by house basis, we are as well rebuilding our nation's remarkable capacity to think compassionately and structurally as a team, the whole reconstruction of our nation's multi-dimensional, mixed energy power grid is made possible as well, but, only if we do so on a house by house basis first.
At any rate Mr. President, if you see the validity of my structural capacity to understand comprehensive, mixed energy based micro public utility grid blueprinting and the subsequent capacity I have to understand mixed energy transportation based municipal and regional fuel source management, and, as well, you see my comprehensive understanding of national building codes as those codes are crucial to the development of all of the above, then perhaps we have an avenue from which structurally based internal domestic American economic development transpires as a result of our substantive conversations together.

As our current 2014 international economic dialog over carbon based international governance (or re-governance) of a petro-dollar based US trade policy is still somewhat architecturally rooted within the ancient nuclear confrontational framework of cold war fuel policy, and, as since the cold war, we as a nation/world have collectively engaged in a once vital and of course still crucial middle eastern based petro-dollar global currency, the internal framework of wholly developing mixed energy use management policies here in the US has never been more crucial to our continued national industrial and global economic benchmark to frame.

Towards the accomplishment of that national goal is the purpose of my essays Mr. President.
From within our highly structured and highly disciplined organic domestic energy management dialog of all fuel sources, we as a nation clearly have the capacity to manage, the quite simple fact remains, in order to rebuild our failing, across the board public energy utility based and transportation based, mixed energy engineered American infrastructure, a very certain sense of industrial based job creation that is clearly focused on the development of the various mixed energy use technologies that make our own very personal homes here in America, once again, value based, is crucial to our entire national economic defense.
In other words, Mr. President, if we as a nation are quite busy rebuilding our nation on a literal house by house basis, and from within that basis, our global trading partners view our overall domestic energy management philosophy as sacrosanct to that defense, the definition of global commerce remains firmly rooted in the 2017 total renovation of your Green Chicago White House.

I'd like to help. Give me a call. I need a job. I bring to the table a most comprehensive knowledge of NCAIS modeling, an equally comprehensive knowledge of every American manufacturing sector, a clear and focused, highly disciplined industrial mindset and an overall love of designing and building beautiful, state of the art American Residential Architecture.
God Bless, keep a smile, and, don't back down pal.
