Boomers are in the Right Place

Dr. Robert Reich has connected the dots to reveal a scary message. But Boomers are now in a position to make things right in the War on the Poor and Working Families. Our world is calling again... it's time for our encore!

Dr. Robert Reich connects the dots to show how a range of positions, on issues ranging from the minimum wage to unemployment insurance to food stamps, work together to keep poor and working families in desperate situations -- and calls on all of us to do something about it. We can get started by calling our senators via the Senate Switchboard at (202) 224-3121, and urging them to extend emergency unemployment insurance. This video is the latest Dr. Reich collaboration with MoveOn.org Civic Action.

First, Baby Steps

Bad Weather EventRenewable Emergency Electricity for Homes, Condos, Apartments & Small Businesses

By Ron Baker

When the power fails this winter and your family and friends are without electricity, shivering in the cold – waiting for the repair crew to restring those antiquated power cables – consider taking a little old baby step toward your future in the Third Industrial Revolution in your town. Install a renewable / sustainable energy back up power generator.

A renewable / sustainable energy back up power generator is inexpensive, totally reliable and not dependent upon a dangerous carbon monoxide generating gasoline-powered generator. Renewable energy back up works for your condo, or apartment, too.

Most people recognize that bad weather events happen no matter which season and that they are happening more frequently. Along with the bad weather usually comes loss of electricity.


Yes, your power can be shut off even when it's -4. In Metro Detroit, Michigan, that is a fact of life. “In fact, gas and electric service for more than 25,000 DTE and Consumers Energy accounts was disconnected for nonpayment in January 2013, and through September, the latest figures available, the number of DTE accounts alone that were cut for nonpayment — 169,407 — was higher than for the entire previous year, according to the Michigan Public Service Commission.”

“Programs exist to help keep the heat on in winter for low-income people struggling to pay their bills, but residents have to apply for help. The only group Michigan automatically protects from shutoffs in the winter is senior citizens. Other groups, including certain military families and those with medical emergencies, can secure a respite from a utility shutoff if they qualify.”

“Regardless of the circumstances, consumers who think they might have trouble paying their bills should call their utility companies as early as possible, said Judy Palnau, spokeswoman for the Michigan Public Service Commission.”

"Michigan customers behind on utility bills face shutoff, even in winter," 27 Jan 2014, Eric D. Lawrence, Detroit Free Press.

How long one may be without power is anyone’s guess.

Weeks after Hurricane Sandy some New Jersey people are still without power. A few summers ago, many of us here in S.E. Michigan were without power for several weeks due to a grid failure originating south of Cleveland.

So, power failures are not unusual and they are increasing in both frequency and severity. What are you going to do to protect your family and your small business?

One answer is to buy a gasoline powered generator. Great idea if you have a safe place to operate it. But, many do not - apartment and condo dwellers – among them.

Over the past few days I have been looking for home and small business “emergency” electricity generation products which operate using renewable energy from wind, sun or other sources. There are few on the market at relatively low cost compared with gasoline powered generators.

The idea is born of preparation for loss of electricity due to future storms. We know we will be subject to more “bad weather” events in the future. So, why sit in your home freezing when you can generate your own power to run your furnace?

My own bad weather experience tells me there is always wind during snow storms and during the summer when we lost electricity for about three weeks here in S.E. Michigan, there was plenty of sun and wind.

Additionally, I’ve read about several technological advances which when combined together make it possible to “bundle” power generation from at least three sources to create plenty of electricity to meet home electrical power needs.

Encore Boomer Movement's Earth Power Generator Back Up System. Stop worrying about freezing this winter or burning up this summer! For example, here is one of the renewable energy generator units which are currently on the market. Please check it out: solar. You will find that some configurations are also less expensive than gasoline powered generators. (Go here for a look at an outstanding home renewable generator company and various products: solar & wind.)

Otherwise, Stand By! Because the Encore Boomer Movement's Earth Power Generator System™ will soon be available to you. It's designed to serve residents of all climates, especially northern areas, no matter the weather conditions. The unit combines three sources of renewable energy — wind, solar and battery back up — to safely generate enough electricity to power your furnace, computer, refrigerator, lights, radio, TV and other appliances during bad weather events.

Our thoughts are to help our communities’ transition to renewable (sustainable) distributed power generation by providing low-cost, "home" emergency generators to be offered by local government public service departments. They will retain some revenue and provide support services for their citizens.
