The government will provide the red tape where needed.
For example, starting a cab company here in AZ is more difficult than almost any place.. Why? Because the state depends on DUI's for financial
sustenance. Cab companies are checked regularly for illegal alien employees, driving records and BBB guidelines. No other business is so thoroughly
harassed by the gov't. They even have made it a law that a police officer may infer how drunk a driver is no matter what their bac and prosecute them
such. Its a stream of income for the state and the police force. They make a profit of it.
So if you're talking a large movement in solar (which, by the way, I completely agree with all of your posts), you're going to have to get through
the red tape. Somehow, they'll find that solar panels cause cancer in homeowners and that more panel installers die by falling than the average
construction worker (higher insurance?). Who knows, people are silly enough to believe claims that the "nanotech" can breach the confines of the
cell and infect you with a NanoSTD.
My point: They will make a big deal out of anything they are not a part of. They own the oil industry at this point. That's why its even a factor. If
the taxes are not high, and the profit margins for the interest groups aren't enough, there will be a mass-scale fight against it, and it might never
be seen. They will quiet such news.
There IS a water-powered car. Its been running, I saw it. Why is the inventor dead and the patent owned by the military but has never been released??
So basically, is solar the most unavoidable success the energy industry has ever seen? If not, the MSM and our overlords will get involved and squelch
Please, I am being the devil's advocate. Offer arguments, it would make me hopeful.
