Get ready to the world of fossil fuel free economies

Seven months ago, President Obama threw $787 billion of your hard-earned cash at a raging economic inferno -- but that's nothing compared to the $10 TRILLION that will go up in flames as the next economic crisis bears down on us.

We're on a collision course with financial disaster. Yet, a handful of the world's most savvy investors -- including Microsoft founder Bill Gates -- are quietly positioning themselves to secure massive profits. You can join them -- if you take advantage of the 3 opportunities revealed just ahead...

Dear Fellow Investor,

According to The Economist, "a fundamental change is coming" -- and sooner than any of us ever imagined.

You probably know all about it. The buzz has been building slowly for years -- and now it's deafening.

It's all over the nightly news and the pages of The Wall Street Journal, Fortune, and Time.

President Obama has made it a top priority for his administration... It took center stage at the Olympics... Now even the mayor of New York and the queen of England are preparing for it.

Yet you may not realize just how soon -- or how much -- it's going to impact our lives.

And I can almost guarantee you that nobody out there has explained the very best way for YOU to lay claim to your fair share of the profits that will come out of this inevitable crisis.

The world's foremost experts say $300 BILLION
will be generated -- in the next 5 years alone

That's why everyone from General Electric to Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan to British Petroleum, The Blackstone Group to Shell Energy -- and even billionaires like Bill Gates -- are racing to get invested.

It's also why I urge you to take the next few minutes to read this report in its entirety...

At the very least, you'll get the full story -- so you can decide for yourself if you'll be front and center when the big money starts rolling in.

Plus you'll get all the details on three immediately actionable investment opportunities that can help you cash in on this coming change -- and build the kind of wealth and financial security we all secretly dream about...

And I'll even show you how you can secure returns far greater than any of the legendary investment houses, companies, or innovators I just mentioned.

Shrewd investors just like you have already used this often-overlooked investment strategy to grow their portfolios by 2,941%, 6,771%, and even 21,201% -- in just the last 10 years alone!

I'll give you all the details in just a moment, but first let's discuss what many experts are calling...

"The Greatest Transfer of Wealth in the History of Mankind"

Right now -- while the rest of our nation struggles with a brutal recession -- a handful of sleepy, wind-swept West Texas towns are absolutely booming.

Not since the first railroad tracks were laid in 1881 have these backwater towns experienced such prosperity...

In places like Sweetwater, Texas, abandoned buildings are being renovated and restored. New shops, hotels, and restaurants are opening left and right. Schools are going up, and highways are being built.

You might be picturing old-money oil tycoons like J.R. Ewing sitting in their mansions, sipping bourbon, and relaxing as their oil rigs pump all day and night...

But here's the real shocker... these towns aren't booming because of oil -- they're booming in spite of it.

You see, they're at the epicenter of a $300 billion movement that holds the key to keeping the U.S. economy from hemorrhaging TENS OF TRILLIONS of dollars over the next few decades.

"The simple truth is that cheap and easy oil is gone.
This is one emergency we can't drill our way out of."
-- Billionaire oilman, T. Boone Pickens

Whether or not you believe that "peak oil" is a geologic reality, the economic reality is that this year alone we will buy $700 billion worth of oil from countries that, as Pickens puts it, "don't like us very much."

That's four times the annual cost of the Iraq war -- and roughly equal to the amount that was picked out of taxpayers' pockets in order to "bail out" Wall Street. Projected out over the next 10 years our tab for foreign oil will come to a staggering $10 TRILLION!

That's a gut-wrenching amount of money to just throw away -- especially when our economy is in such turmoil. And from the looks of it, things are only going to get worse.

In 1970, we imported 24% of our oil. Today it's nearly 70% -- and growing.

And although we represent a mere 4% of the world's population, we use nearly 25% of its oil.

The unfortunate truth is that we are hopelessly addicted to oil. And the readily available supply of that oil is coming into serious question...

The CEO of Total SA, one of the world's largest oil companies, recently confessed that the world can't increase oil output beyond current levels.
The Wall Street Journal reports that output from the world's existing oil fields is dropping about 4.5% per year and by up to 18% per year at some of the biggest oil fields in the North Sea, Alaska, and the Gulf of Mexico.
The New York Times reports that many of the world's top oil exporters may have to begin importing oil within a decade to keep up with rising energy demands inside their borders.
Of course, the Saudis claim they have plenty -- some 260 billion barrels in reserve. Yet they refuse to let outsiders audit their reserves or confirm these claims.

And even if they do have all that oil, you can bet they have only one motive: to get top dollar for it.

In fact, more than 75% of the world's oil supply is in the hands of state-owned oil companies who are worried only about their own bottom lines.

To make matters worse, population booms in places like India and China have caused demand to skyrocket -- putting an even bigger strain on this ever-diminishing supply.

Last year we saw just how quickly the price of oil and gasoline can spike -- and how much havoc this can wreak on our economy and our way of life.

The good news is that there now is a solution that is both feasible and profitable...

"Plans for the end of the fossil-fuel
economy are now being laid."
-- The Economist

20 years ago, wind energy was nothing more than a coffee-shop conversation between tree-huggers and hippies.

But since then, technologies have improved immensely... designs have become exponentially more efficient... and America's energy crisis has reached an urgent breaking point...

Meaning that wind energy has gone from something that we ought to pursue to something we absolutely must pursue.

Luckily for us, wind is now a viable -- and profitable -- way to wean ourselves off foreign oil. But don't take my word for it...

Researchers at Stanford University concluded that wind power can satisfy global energy demand 7 times over -- even if only 20% of available wind can be harvested.

Green Chip Review estimates, "By 2020, wind capacity in the United States will have grown 360%."

And the Department of Energy recently confirmed that up to 20% of America's electricity can come from wind by 2030 -- maybe even sooner.

When you consider that number currently stands at just 1%, you can begin to see why in-the-know investors are so excited right now...

The wind industry is about to explode 20-FOLD in the U.S. alone.
