Other OpenGov Ideas & Information Resources

Rather than post each of my "OpenGov" Ideas at 27 different websites, I have posted them at the GSA's website (since they are in the forefront of the OpenGov initiative). So, by this notice, the members of the OpenGov Team for this agency have been informed of those ideas. (At least, now, you can't say you were unaware of them.)

Variable Tariff on Oil that creates a fixed price within the US

If the US were to decide on a fixed and fair price for OIL within its borders, then OPEC would be prevented from manipulating markets within the US, which ultimately stands in the way of bringing the cost of Green Technology down to the levels they would be at naturally without the artificial interference of OPEC. So in such a "variable Tariff/Fixed Price" model, if the price of oil were to rise above the fixed price... more »

Ween Oil/Car corps off dirty fuel by subzidizing gree retooling

It's 100% clear that the biggest thing standing in the way of living in a world of ALL green, clean energy (or progress in general) are the companies and people who stand to lose market share as a result of the emergence of new companies and new technologies. These people and large companies will fight tooth and nail to maintain their profits. I don't particularly care for these companies or people, BUT I'd rather live... more »

Applying Nash Equilibrium models to decision making

Already-proven engineering and ethical principals need to a greater degree be incorporated into the decision-making process. In particular, given its promise of finding optimal solutions, it is key that Nash Equilibrium models are used to form the daily decisions that determine how limited resources are spent, thus optimizing energy sufficiency and sustainability. Great care must be made in structuring and reviewing... more »

INTERNATIONAL SPEED LIMITS SET TO 55 MPH SAVES GAS AND LIVES

SET THE SPEED LIMITS TO 55 MPH ON HIGHWAYS ACROSS THE WORLD. OUR HIGHWAYS ARE OPENED TO HIGH SPEED LIMITS. THIS ALONE WOULD SAVE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS PER YEAR. A VEHICLE TRAVELLING AT 55 MPH WOULD HAVE MORE GAS AND SAVE LIVES, THEN A VEHICLE TRAVELLING AT 70 MPH AND INCREASING THE CHANCE OF A VEHICLE ACCIDENT AND GUZZLING MORE FUEL WHEN WERE IN A FUEL CRISIS.

Disruptive Technologies: A Holistic, Pragmatic Approach

New technologies are emerging at a faster pace than Agencies can swallow. The rate of obsolescence outpaces the rate of change.

Despite the new technology flood, Agencies lack a strategy to on-board these disruptions. As a result, they often react, flounder, or simply ignore them.

We can solve these problems in four major areas of practice:

Energy Multitasking: Jobs, Schools, First Steps

This idea is so simple I'm surprised no one has come up with it yet before me.

Photovoltaic solar energy (along with wind turbines, but this idea has mostly to do with solar energy) is the ultimate in green, carbon-neutral energy. It uses an existing energy resource (the sun's light) to generate energy and ultimately electricity. There are problems with the energy transfer efficiency, sure. But improvements are made... more »

Correcting ALL incoming power offers greater savings and protect

I haven't seen this issues addressed anywhere.

If there was a way to correct all incoming power "in all commercial buildings instantly", what would the benefits in savings and protection mean?

For savings, this of course would depend on how the billing is set up. Could you explain how our govt is billed for electricity, is it by KWH OR KVAH? As I understand it, since our govt is the largest user it would make more... more »

Gas Prices & ‘Big’ Oil Companies

First off, has no one realized that we have been lucky enough to have a real ‘OIL BOOM’ going on in our back yard! I am pleased that some one in America is benefiting, but the oil companies are jumping through hoops and ladders to get in on this. Talk about profits and a supply that is no longer foreign. However, will the American people/USA Nation as a whole, profit from this...I hope so. The news web pages with the... more »

surface mail and air mail

we used to be able to send surface mail to Asia from the U.S.

Now we are not able to do so.

I can send surface mail/packages from the P.R. China to the U.S. but cannot send surface mail from the U.S. to the P.R. China.

The post offfice people said that the containers for air mail were traveling
with low utilization. The elimination of surface mail was to force use
of the air transport.
