Solar panel retrofit to wind turbines Printer Friendly Version
Large windfarms generally take up a lot of land and that space on the turbine blades or the top of the generator house retrofitted with flexable solar cells could easily increase the amount of power produced without taking up any more land. Anyone else have any other ideas on increasing the renewable power production on current power installations shout it out.
Reward: More power from the same amount of land space

Distributable Taxes Printer Friendly Version
I think that the government often spends tax money in their own interest. I have a plan called Destributable taxes which will let the tax payers at least controll how some of their money is spent.
Under my idea, the government would get full controll of 3/4ths of your taxes. The government could spend it as they see fit. The last fourth, however, would be distributed to different areas of the government by you. Your tax forms would contain a special form where you could dictate what percent of your remaining fourth goes too. So for instance if one felt that the government was not spending enough money on welfare and too much money on the military, that person could reserve most of their remaining fourth for welfare and spend little or no money on the military. Under my plan the people would then be able to keep government spending in check by chosing how their individual money is spent.
Of course like all new ideas it needs some work. THere are still a few things that would have to be worked out. Besides that though, what do you think of the basic idea?
Reward: Give me credit.
