Letter to Senator Al Franken

Will you be taking any initiatives on clean energy? I know you will be generally supportive, but is there anything you will co-sponsor? I think your influence would be maximized if you bring up something that is really important but which is missing from the current debate. That way, your words drop into a new pool, with a smooth surface where the little ripples are visible. Something co-sponsored by a Republican perhaps? I have my favorite issue, outlined below:

Americans care about both renewable energy and overhead powerlines. We need new powerlines to allow renewable energy to displace fossil fuel. The utilities keep saying they cannot be put underground. This is only true because the utilities nor DOE does anything to develop or study underground options, like elpipes. A little pressure on this could have huge effects by de-bottlenecking remote energy site development across the US.
