This is a first: A candidate for the U.S. Senate emails me to apply for membership in the Pigou Club.
这是第一次:一个美国参议院的一员发邮件给我,申请加入Pigou俱乐部。
Hello Greg, I am a candidate for the U.S. Senate in New Hampshire
and believe we should address our energy problem through a National
Security Levy on oil. I have worked with Doug Irwin and Jon Skinner
from Dartmouth on the National Security Levy (Doug says hello), and
have also consulted with Andrew Samwick.The details of the National Security Levy are enclosed. [Here is a link.] The e-mail we sent out about it earlier appears below. Think we could be listed as a member of the Pigou club? Look forward to talking with you. Sincerely,
Jay----
Greg你好,我是新罕布什尔州参议院的议员(www.buckey08.com),并且我认为我们应该通过对石油征收国家安全税来解决能源问题。我和达特茅斯的Doug Irwin和Jon Skinner一起研究关于国家安全税问题(Doug向你问好),而且我们也征求了Andrew Samwick的意见。附上了关于国家安全费的详细信息。【这里是链接】下面是我们早前发出的邮件。你认为我们可以成为Pigou俱乐部的一员么?期待和你交流。诚恳的,Jay.

Dear Friends, If we needed confirmation that we've lost control of our energy future, we got it on Tuesday. President Bush was in Saudi Arabia trying to convince King Abdullah to help out our economy by increasing oil production. According to the report I read, the King's response was "lukewarm."Now it's time for the American people to choose our energy future. We can either devote ever-increasing resources to defending our access to oil overseas -- and deal with the effects of global warming.Or we can use our technological skills to make the transition to renewable alternatives.At a news conference yesterday in Manchester, I proposed a new plan to take charge of our future through a National Security Levy on oil.Basically, the National Security Levy would be a fee on every barrel of oil consumed in the U.S -- combined with a price floor guaranteeing that oil would not sink below a certain price. The National Security Levy would be phased in slowly so that consumers wouldn't face a sudden price shock.Part of the revenues from the levy would be rebated to working families to help compensate for increased energy costs. The rest would help finance an Apollo Program for Energy to make the US a world leader in energy development and production. This technological drive would create new jobs and businesses here in New Hampshire, where we have a growing alternative energy economy. The details of the National Security Levy are on our website: http://www.buckey08.com/issues.html.This plan is going to require everyone in the US to change how they use energy.This may make the plan unpopular with some. But I got into this Senate race not to just look for the politically popular path, but to do things that need to be done. And getting serious about our energy problem is way overdue.As a nation, we can be great at this transition. No other country on Earth has the talents, resources, and drive to change from petroleum to renewable alternatives as well as we can. Also, spending billions of dollars for energy here in the United States that we otherwise would have sent to foreign governments is going to be an enormous economic boost for us. But we have to get started. I'm very glad to be able to put this proposal forward. But I can't make it happen alone. Please tell your friends about it, ask them to join us, and contribute to the campaign. With your support, we can succeed. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely,
Jay
亲爱的朋友,如果我们需要证实我们已经对未来的能源失去了控制,那么我们在这个礼拜二已经得到了。布什总统正在沙特阿拉伯说服阿卜杜拉国王增加石油产量来帮助美国经济的恢复。根据我读的那则报导,国王的反应十分“冷淡”。 现在是美国人民对未来的能源做出选择的时刻了。要么我们可以致力于不断的增加来源以保证海外石油的获取。要么我们可以利用科技手段,转而使用其他的可再生能源。在昨天曼彻斯特的新闻发布会上,我提出了一个通过征收石油国家安全费来改变我们的将来的新计划。基本上来说,这个国家安全费将会对每桶被美国消费的石油来征收——与最低保障价格结合起来,石油将不会再低于某一个价位。国家安全费将会慢慢被推行,从而消费者将不会面临一个突然的价格冲击。征收这个费用所获得的一部分收入将用于补贴工薪阶层的家庭以帮助他们面对增长的能源价格,剩下的那一部分收入将会被用于资助阿波罗能源项目,使美国成为全世界在能源发展和生产上的领头羊。这样的科技驱动将会在新罕布什尔州这一拥有新的能源经济的地方,制造出新的工作岗位和商机。我们的网站(http://www.buckey08.com/issues.html)上有关于这一计划的详细内容。这一计划将会要求每一个美国人改变他们使用能源方式。这有可能会让该计划在某些人中不受欢迎。但是我进入参议院,并不是仅仅寻找那些广受欢迎的政治道路,而是要做些应该做的事情。况且现在才越来越严肃的对待能源问题已经有些迟了。作为美国,我们可以能源的转换上做出巨大的贡献。全球没有任何别的国家能像我们一样拥有这样的能力、资源和动力来将石油为主导的能源应用转化成可再生新能源的应用。同时,那本来用于支付给别的国家用于能源的数十亿美元,对我们来说也将成为一个巨大的经济推动。然而我们得先开始这个项目才行。我非常开心可以推进这项提议,但仅靠我一个人的努力这是不可能完成的。请告诉你的朋友们,邀请他们加入我们并且对此做出贡献。有了你的支持,相信我们可以成功!期待着你的意见。
诚挚的Jay

Note注意
to journalists out there: Give this guy the attention he deserves. It
is brave and honorable to try to turn this good policy into successful
politics.
记者朋友们:给与这个人他应有的关注吧。尝试把一个好的方针转化成一个成功的政策是勇敢和正直的。
