Hultgren should jump at energy solutions
The Daily Herald endorses Hultgren, stating: "Hultgren sees opportunity in the nation's lack of comprehensive energy policy, insisting that Illinois can lead out on technology, scientific research and manufacturing innovations," which seems contrary to my experience.
I have 40 years of engineering experience developing new methods for erecting massive structures in the global market for the transport of carbon-based energy. I will be working off the Australian coast the week that you vote.
Working as an individual, I believe that I have developed an innovative and disruptive tower design and erection method for large land-based wind turbines that will permit doubling of the tower height and tripling of the generating capacity over current installation averages. This design can be made in existing factories with current equipment and craft skills; shipped within current restrictions; and erected with industry standard equipment that should be less costly. This technology could reduce imports and allow Midwestern manufacturers to create jobs and export a product in an industry that dearly needs job growth.
I met with Randy Hultgren 1˝ years ago and he asked that I summarize my claims and experiences in a letter. My innovation syncs with his claims for continuing in office, so why have I not heard from him?
Bill Foster never had time to meet when he was my 14th District Representative.
People think that our national scientific laboratories provide unbiased evaluations of these new technologies, but that is not their mission. I have found no support from our government or politicians and that is possibly because they know the news media will endorse the least offensive candidate and not hold them to their promises.
