I was glad to hear Obama mention solar and wind power in his speach yesterday.
The comment about not strengthening our enemies with our energy money was great too!

I have been doing a lot reading about the situation we've gotten ourselves into regarding our country and this planet. It began a few years ago when I read " The world is flat " by Thomas Friedman. The superficial reports in the newspapers don't seem to connect the dots and only scratch the surface of the subject. So I just finished his new book,"Hot Flat and Crowded." The follow up is so profound. It should be required reading of all americans who care about this country.
Being that this has become my newest obsession, I speak to people about it as a matter of interest, and have come to the realization that our society has no real understanding of the problem we face. People think its cool to be "green" ...without a clue as to the real sacrifice and change needed or the tipping point that we have approached.
A revolution is needed~ not a green "FAD" or phase. Revolutions are radical upheavals and along with revolutions come great pains, even if, in retrospect, they are growing pains. If we choose to avoid the pain of change, we will not benefit from the growth a real revolution will offer. If we don't lead the change , we will surely be destined to follow, a position not familiar for Americans. Unfortunately todays Americans have short attention spans, we have forgotten how to delay gratification and if we remain "dumb as we wanna be "(A Tom "Friedmanism") it will lead to our ultimate demise, literally.
So then why are we bailing out an antiquated carbon based auto industry instead of using the bail out billions for seed money to fund the future? Sure there will be pain, but has there ever been a real revolution with out pain? When one door closes another one will open , such is the nature of things.

The Focus: Your Dryer!

Firstly, each dryer is different in the amount of wattage it uses. To find out how much yours uses, open the door and read the information tag. If it doesn't state directly what the wattage is, it will state its volts and amps. Multiple these 2 numbers and that will be your dryer's wattage. My dryer is about 5 years old and uses 5600 watts. That means that if I have it on for 1 hour I use 5.6-kilowatt hours. Puget Sound Energy charges about 9 cents per KWH so my dryer costs about 50 cents an hour to run. I was looking at some new energy star rated dryers in circuit city yesterday and found some as low as 1300 watts which would only cost about 12 cents an hour to run. So if you really want to know how much your saving, knowing your dryers wattage is important.

The Goal: To reduce each loads drying time by 20 minutes

Actions Steps: 1) The first thing that you need to do is make sure that you are washing appropriately sized loads. The electricity your dryer uses, (unless you have a super duper new one), is the most expensive part of doing a load of laundry. To many clothes in the dryer will hamper its ability to do its job well. Each one is a little different so try to pay attention to what works best for yours.

2) Once your appropriately sized load is done washing, send it through another spin cycle. You can do this by turning the knob on the washer to the last portion of the wash cycle labeled "spin" and turning it on. This will help to get a significant amount of extra moisture out of your clothes.

3) If you have an indoor clothes rack, hang your clothes on them near a heater for a couple hours and then finish drying them in the dryer. I would stay away from drying them completely this way unless it's summer and they are outside on a clothesline. They start to smell funny because it's just to slow. But it gives them a bit of a head start and lightens the workload for the dryer.

4) Set the timer on your dryer for 15 minutes. Most of the lint created in drying a load of laundry is created in the first 15 to 20 minutes. Experiment a bit and find what works best for yours. After this "pre-dry" cycle has ended, empty the lint trap and if you're really ambitious set it for another 15 or 20 minutes and continue to do this until the clothes are dry. I usually just do it once unless I have a particularly heavy "puppy hair" load. Doing this reduces the resistance that the hot air, carrying moisture with it, will encounter on its way out. Reducing this resistance will help to shorten the drying time.
Fifth Fuel Solutions

Dec 23 2008 11:07 AM

5) Don't use the highest heat setting. If you don't believe me think of it this way. Have you ever tried to cook a steak well done on the highest setting possible on your stove? You end up burning the outside of the steak to a crisp while in the center not a lot of work is getting done. A lower setting allows for more even distribution of the heat throughout the load. On my dryers’ lowest setting, (knit/delicates low) doing all of these things it takes about 45 minutes to dry the largest "appropriately sized" load. With out doing these things it takes over an hour.

The Results: Doing all of these things will take about an extra 5 minutes per load. But it will also reduce the total dryer use time by about 20 minutes. We'll take an average of a 3000-watt dryer and see what this does for the country.

100m homes doing an average of 1 load of laundry per day saving 20 minutes per load = 33.3million hours of dryer time per day. 33.
3million hours times 3000 watts =

100million KWH/day. At a country wide average cost of 11 cents per KWH that means we are saving $11 million dollars per day or $4.015billion per year. If we add this to what we did with our refrigerator we are now saving $19.015 billion per year. If we assume this electricity came from a coal fired electric plant, we have also reduced our carbon footprint by 362,149,318,180 pounds per year or about 1 billion pounds per day. This $19 billion, spent in industries that have a 20% labor cost, could employ 76,000 people per year at $50,000 per year. Unfortunately this only adds up to about $40 per year per household in savings. But for this particular exercise it's more about a sense of civic duty to help pitch in your nickel so we can all combine to accomplish something great.

Please tell a friend, ask them to friend Fifth Fuel, and share this info with your family members and friends who don't use myspace and help to make a difference in some very easy ways!

Hey Boone,
Take heart because here in Idaho people have not returned to the days of filling up the tank in their SUV's like they did before high prices. The state is worried about how it's going to get enough money for roads because they rely on the gas tax and people are not buying gas like they used to. GOOD NEWS indeed. I hope we have all learned some valuable lessons lately regarding the planet and energy! Here's a link to an article that appeared in the Idaho Statesman yesterday 12/17/08: http://www.msplinks.com/MDFodHRwOi8vbmwubmV3c2JhbmsuY29tL25sLXNlYXJjaC93ZS9BcmNoaXZlcz9wX2FjdGlvbj1kb2MmcF9kb2NpZD0xMjUyNDAxNUUwQUMwRjM4JnBfZG9jbnVtPTUmcF90aGVtZT1nYW5uZXR0JnNfc2l0ZT1pZGFob3N0YXRlc21hbiZwX3Byb2R1Y3Q9SURTQg==

The pickens plan should be part of are health care plan. Because know body gets sick when there is a wind farm and people get sick and die when there is a coal fired power plant in the neighborhood. Real sports did a great story on that awhile back. Pickens plan will make us healthier litterally.

Boone, I'm going to say this with motivation in my heart. "BIG DEAL" who cares what the ALA says, we already know what the benifits are, this is just a money issue not government, when you big wigs think your going to make a buck that's when you'll get around to "making it happen" so please quit jerking use around with unimportant garbage, and tell us when we are going to use this "GREAT" plan. my dad always says "Crap or get off the pot" now I'm saying it to you.

I've just joined 'pickensplan. com'. Am very excited about what the future holds for us ALL!!

Thx Pickens for your determination!! I too believe that Obama is on-board!!

The problem with natural gas cars and trucks is not their costs for the cars and trucks. One of the biggest reasons that people and companies don't buy cars and trucks that run on natural gas is that there are very few gas stations that sell natural gas if any. If you want to increase the demand for natural gas cars and trucks you have to subsidize gas stations that install natural gas pumps not subsidize each indivual truck for $50,000 each. I much rather pay $50,000 for each gas pump which I think would shift demand for 10 times the vehicals as subsidizing the vehical.

Nov 27 2008 8:17 AM

I agree!!
God forbid a creative and talented person get rich from a good idea and from weaning the U S from foreign oil in a much cheaper and faster way than with hydrogen!!
Funny how the communist mind works,they worry who is going to get rich and not how that wealth is going to be spread around!!
They are so good at spreading wealth this communists, they struggle with creating wealth though!

water jugs at a time.


Since doing these simple things, I've been able to turn the dial on my refrigerator down from a 6 down to a 2.75, cutting the work load about in half. Now, as mentioned before, as a country we spent about $30billion last year on our refrigerators. Cutting this in half would free up about $15 billion per year that could be spent in local economies through out the country. If this was spent in industries that have a 20% labor cost, it could employ up to 60,000 people making $50,000 per year.

We do not need to be held hostage by the polititions in DC while they sit around trying to figure out how to fix things. This is something that is concrete and easy to do that you can involve yourself in to help while helping yourself by lowering your electric bill by as much as 7%. If you are interested in learning more of these kinds of tricks, that are currently saving me about $1500 a year, let me know. Please pass this information along. We have lost a record number of jobs in this country and unless something significant changes there is not a lot that is stopping us from heading into another depression. Even if you can afford the extra costs in your life, you should consider it a civic duty to do these kinds of things so that you can help to keep others employed, off unemployment, and in a position to continue coming into your place of business and spending money to keep you employed.

Thanks for reading!

As some of you may know, I've started a business that provides unique solutions for business to reduce their utility bills. While I've been doing this, several ways to help in an average residential home have come to mind. I have been trying as best as I can to spread the word of what these entail because with a cumulative effort, the results would be massive. I will start with one example today with some numbers to show how this could help the economy.

THE FOCUS: Your refrigerator; The average house hold spends 15% of their total electric bill on their refrigerator. Last year, as a country, we spent about $800 billion on energy, with about 25% of that going to residential usage. That means that average people like you and me spent about $200 billion on powering our homes last year with 15% of that on our Refrigerator...or $30 billion. (Keep in mind that the three big auto-makers are currently begging for 25billion to keep them afloat).

THE GOAL: To double its efficiency;

1) Arange the shelves in your refrigerator so that you can store as much of your food as high as possible. This will bring the food closer to the vent that is blowing cold air and put it to work much sooner. Air does not maintain temp as well as solid mass objects, so if this is not done, the air is forced to fight through 6-18 inches of dead air, cooling it first, before being put to work.

2)A full refrigerator runs more effectivly than an empty one. This is true because, as previoulsy stated, air is not very good at holding temp. To take advantage of this, any empty space available should be filled with milk jugs 80% full of water. When possible, rotate these through your freezer. What I like to do is rotate these before I go to work, essentially placing 1 or 2 large blocks of ice in my frige so that it does not have to work as hard while I'm at work.
I personally have quite a bit of room in my frige at times so I have up to 6 or 7 water

Mr.Pickens,I sent following msg to the Transition site that you provided in bulletin.
Dear sir,
Mr.Obama should not have time to read my msg,but in case he does,I express highest respect to him.
I read article about Mr.T.Boone Pickens' ENERGY plan,visited his website. http://www.msplinks.com/MDFodHRwOi8vd3d3LnBpY2tlbnNwbGFuLmNvbQ==
Whatever would be the future outcome of his plan,I thought He tried to solve energy problem with passion.Would you please visit his website.I thank you for reading my msg.Most respectfully,

Nov 21 2008 5:09 PM

My message to Obama, "We need to use T Boone Pickens' plan. As well as get Bio Diesel resources more accessible to the average citizens. It is cleaner, renewable, and diesel engines run better on bio diesel. Also, I believe we should make it mandatory for all new buildings to have solar panels on the roofs.

The Pickens Plan seems to be nothing more than a huge commercial to fool Americans into switching to Natural Gas. There is nothing Green about it, on TV interviews Pickens throws negatives at electric vehicles and alternative energy. He praises Natural Gas at every chance.
The Pickens Plan has nothing to do with saving the environment.
The Pickens plan is stealing the hearts of environmentalists in order to push new agenda to develop Fossil Fuels.
Wake up people. The Pickens Plan has nothing to do with Green Energy.

Just as an additional thought so far all I have seen is a plan, I haven't seen any thing eles, no wind mills, no green buildings, no hard core laws, no green cars, so thanks for the forum Boon ol' chap but great men actualy do great things you got much more to do to get my admiration.

How about taking the money you have and creating a car company that makes fuel efficient hybrid cars for under $5000 then everone could afford to start thinking green not just those with deep pockets. The people who are getting truly screwed are the folks who make less than $25,000 a year, and considering there are more of us than any one eles don't you think that's a demagrafy you just can't ignore. the problem is'nt just ignorance of the problem, it's just flat too expensive to go green in the way ya'll are talkin. All this talk is nice but it's just talk is'nt someone going to get off there butt and actualy do something...
