Any environmental conspiracy was first of all to prevent the inception of clean and renewable technology, before any countries became heavily industrialised,
and nowadays to supress it, tho' the supression today is mostly all informational, the technologies themselves and methods, are in operation all over the world.

I wonder sometimes why vehicles don't at least have better gas mileage, despite the computer age, and the time to advance. You might think 30+ miles per gallon is good, but cars were doing that in the 70's. Are oil companies stopping cleaner technologies?

Hydros' about tapped out, unless new ways to harness it from flood zones can be exploitec.
A dam is either "run of river" or intended to store water. Reclamation's run of river projects, such as Boise Diversion Dam and Black Canyon Dam have limited storage and were developed primarily for power generation. At run-of-river projects, outflow is virtually the same as inflow. Reservoir levels at run-of-river projects vary only a few feet in normal operations, but that is enough to provide water for power generation or navigation.

t's cost effective for someone to tinker until they can get their car to run on waste kitchen grease. But it's not cost effective for the Ford Motor Company to do that (redesign entire plants, retrain people, and try to find enough grease to power every possible car.)
