We can use your help. So what can you do?
Please first study SSP's key points, ask questions about any unclear points and then write your Congressman requesting their support for the Sunsat Act, as shown in the letters already sent below. Send an email to your friends and family asking them to send a letter to their Congress men and women, pointing them to SSP websites and articles such as this at www.spacejournal.org (Issue No.16: Solar Power Satellite).
Congress listens to those who communicate with them. Most Americans have never written to their Congress person. Sample
letters appear below.
Keep the letter or email simple, courteous and
to the point. We will place others
there. We also encourage you to connect with us and other
interested volunteers at the Space Solar Power Workshop
through (email: SunsatMinutemen@googlegroups.com)
http://groups.google.com/group/SunsatMinutemen. - Please send us a copy of yours.
Sunsat Corp will be a public/private super-utility created by Congress to build power satellites - just as Comsat and Intelsat were chartered to build communications satellites. Our economy is tightly linked to low cost energy. Failing to address our growing global energy, economic and environmental threats is increasingly costly, as it will take decades to do the work of building an SSP system.
