Dear Seattle Voter,

My background is in alternative energy research. I was inspired as a child of the 60ís by the space program and the promise of nuclear power. I was influenced by the environmentalist movement, and took to heart the negative impacts of burning fossil fuels on human health and planet Earth. Then came the oil crises and the anti-nuclear movement of the 70ís. By pursuing my doctorate in physics, I embraced the challenge of developing nuclear fusion, which is a cleaner and unlimited source of power. But by the mid-nineties, it seemed that fusion would not be ready in time to avert the global crisis over fossil fuels, and that renewable energy had been neglected. Although there are technical solutions to our resource and environmental problems, the politics of energy have so far prevented a serious national policy.

I came to Seattle in 1995 to attend the UW Law School, thinking that these issues were more political then technical. Shortly after arriving here in Seattle, I was nearly fatally injured by a mandatory vaccine at UW. Since then, I have felt compelled to spread the word about dangerous vaccine mandates by running for office. For example, people should be aware that the flu shot given to six-month-old infants contains 1600 times as much mercury as a can of tuna.

Whether itís from big pharma or big oil, we cannot count on the federal government to protect us. We need a local energy plan. In my 1999 campaign for City Council, I warned that City Light lacked a secure supply and that we needed to start building wind farms capable of generating for 5 cents/kWhr. Nothing was done in time and we lost $600 million during the subsequent electricity crisis. City Light now has a pilot wind farm, and overall is generating a profit of about $130 million a year. But the Mayor wants to roll back rates rather than making needed investments. The Mayor is ignoring that the cheap Bonneville hydro contract is going to expire in 2011, at which the price of hydro could double or triple. Hereís what Iíll deliver if elected: for $4 billion, weíll develop 4 GW of Seattle owned wind turbines east of the Cascades. At $75 MWhr, this will produce $750 million worth of electricity per year, generating $400 million in profit for our needs, and make Seattle a 100% green city.
