Paul, thanks for the link Great info! I sent the link to my congressman 
and both senators with this letter:

I recognize you are very busy. Please have a staffer look at this link:

It is a presentation a colleague gave on energy with some very 
thought-provoking ideas. This would seem to be something both democrats 
and republicans could agree on, and your leadership could make a difference.
Lynn Johnson, Ph.D.

I hope I can call you a (virtual) colleague. I suggest if we all sent 
something like that to our representatives, Paul's concepts could gain 
some energy (grin) in the legislature.
-- You can email your representatives through this linik:

PS: Paul, I also sent the link to my brother, Karl, at U. Pitt where he 
is prof of chem eng. He is involved in energy storage studies, and 
modeled hydrogen storage in carbon nanotubes (he found it wasn't 
practical) so I am sure he will be interested in your work.  If you give 
permission, I would also post the link to some other energy-related 
sites with a similar message.
