Add to that the fact I keep trying to point out THE UNITED STATES CANNOT AFFORD A RADICAL GREEN POWER PROGRAM. Especially now. We have it looks to be a $12 Trillion national debt where is the money supposed to come from?
As thus we come to perhaps the biggest challenge facing us as a nation in the modern era. It doesn't matter if we can't afford it; we have
to do it. We're going to have to find a way to make it more affordable, attainable, etc.
For one thing, big business sometimes seizes an idea and sits on it because it's too much of a threat to their livelihood. Look at the 1948 Tucker; the man produced an automobile that was years ahead of its time, but the Big Three put the brakes on it by making sure he couldn't get steel to build them. If they let him build it, Detroit would have had to scale up to match the competition, which was superior.
My point is, unless any of us here can honestly say we're in the know; we know some of the stuff big business has shelved, or we're research scientists or engineers, we simply can't say we know that affordable fuel-cell technology for automobiles exists right now, but is undeveloped due to greed.
We simply can't know if feasible nuclear fusion technology exists on a shelf right now, or if a cure for AIDS and most cancers exists.
I assume you all understand my point, and the situation is dire enough now that we need to be radical. I'm no more for government meddling in our affairs than any of you, but big business proves time and again it needs a watchdog.
In my view, if such shelved tech needs to be forcibly seized and developed by those willing to use it, then that's what we need to do. I'm talking the kitchen sink here folks; forcible seizure of greedy company assets, even assassination of unwilling CEO's if need be. We can't play paddy cake any more on this stuff, the time to move purposefully is now.
