To the Editor:

We have been to the moon, there is nothing there. We have explored Mars with robots, there is nothing there either.

With the exception of telescopes and satellites, let’s back off on space exploration until we have developed, implemented and paid for a nationwide transportation system that uses pollution-free, inexpensive and unlimited hydrogen fuel cells.

This exciting adventure would reduce or eliminate our dependency on foreign oil. That would reduce or eliminate our trade deficit, which would increase our nation’s economy by trillions of dollars.

Economically, environmentally and even socially, we would all be richer.

If you agree, please contact your Congressman, your Senators and the president, and tell them you want this accomplished in five years or less.

If enough of us tell enough of them it will happen.
