As the Obama administration continues to push discredited stimulus ideas, National Review‘s Rob Long offers some “ideas to restore and rebuild our nation’s crumbling and outdated infrastructure.”
One in particular might interest a North Carolina audience:
The Southern Multi-State Deep-Fat-Fryer-Generated Power Grid
A Green Jobs initiative encompassing a multistate footprint. Utilizing smart-grid technology, the estimated 17 million deep-fat fryers in simultaneous use within the region will be networked together. As food products are immersed within the cooking fat, the energy thrown off by this action will be collected by the network and transferred to the energy hub in the region. Estimated job creation: 75,000 in its first year. Will require high-skilled engineering and energy-construction experts, as well as fry cooks.
