We are quickly reaching the point where increasing inequality in the developed world will no longer increase global equality.

+Hans Rosling, is this a better investment than buying Google ads to expand the US's Earned Income Tax Credit?

Please forward !!!!We are anxious to contact GOOGLE !!!!!!!!This is what you can do for the environment.    Thank you !!!!!

Dear Google,

My name is Hoku Chou, I would like to introduce our breakthrough energy technology - “Power Enhancer“ . We really hope that we can work together in the future. 

Nowadays, the protection of environment has become an global concern. The massive emission of carbon dioxide results in global warming and various kinds of disastrous accidents, that is the reason why we have to pay significantly attention to protect our home- the earth. Our company has spent 10 years of researching and we have been trying to develop an equipment that can maximise the use of renewable energy sources as well as recycle it, we call it “Power Enhancer“.

Our development have already made it matching to the commercial energy level. I believe that this will be the most efficient green energy in the future. In addition, the mass production of this green energy will be bound to protect the environment and benefit the whole world.
 
After working as green energy developer for many years, we truly believe that our groundbreaking hard-workings will have great contribution to the future. Even though we have been working in such difficult conditions during the past years, but our hard work finally has been paid out. After the breaking through development over the last couple of years, our “Power Enhancer“ can finally be launching. We are now doing full scaled tests on the machine, once testing has been finished, we truly hope that we could collaborate with Google who is an internationally acknowledged enterprise.

All the information and datum has been kept in secret at this level, but we sincerely expect to meet you with detailed description of our technology and plan. We look forward to hearing back from you. 

Yours faithfully,
Hoku Chou
