Highway power Printer Friendly Version
The wind off of cars on the highway should be able to be harnessed in a positive manner. Why couldn't we put wind turbines down the middle of the highway so that air generated from passing vehicles could in turn power something such as the highway lights?

Algae for Life Printer Friendly Version
There's many people that think CO2 is bad, but what they don't know is that there are things in nature that have to have CO2 to survive. Did you know that algae consumes more CO2 than trees and the toxins let off by coal burning factories are nutrients to some algae's? The nutrients that the algae then produces can fight and prevent malnutrition and when dried, the algae becomes biomass and can be burned like coal for energy with no emissions. I propose that all coal burning factories, by law, should have to implement this concept to their industry.

Space For Solar Power Printer Friendly Version
One of the biggest issues with solar power is finding the land area for it, without wasting usable land. My idea is to use the roads, by building tall platforms that run the length of the road. This would allows dual use of the same space, particularly in the country. In addition, the roads would be safer as it would provide a partial cover to rain, thus preventing some hydroplaning. They already do it in some places with byways, why not solar panels. Add you don't have to destroy usable land or park land to do it.
Reward: Credit and some sort of appreciation. :)
