WASHINGTON, D.C. - New House Energy and Commerce Committee chairman Henry Waxman has announced January hearings to push for passage of The Giant Fan Act ( H.R. 9151). Waxman called it a "common sense solution to the problem of carbon emissions." He explained: "H.R. 9151 would divert oil tax revenue to alternative energy sources such as giant fans. These fans would produce powerful winds that would drive giant windmills, modeled after those in Holland. These windmills, in turn, would create more wind that could be channeled into generators that would power great boilers that would produce clean, steam energy for our children. But only for our children. Adults as well any foreign children would have a separate energy plan."
