"Good" Conspiracy??

This would be considered a good conspiracy,if there is such a thing. Was watching a 24hr news show(CNN-FOX-Can't remember which one)and they were doing yet another story about the rising oil prices and what's being done about it. The news guy said what is needed is a "Manhatten" type project to come up with a different energy source and he said there is a rumor out there that one is well under way. Has anyone else heard anything about this possible "secret" project?

By now people should know that there are a lot of clean energy options. The middle class of the western world could run an electric car off sunlight in all but the cloudiest climates, and even those have the option for hydrogen hybrids or personal generators. Without even going into tesla tech there is enough proven technology prototyped, tested and developed to solve the oil dependancy without even touching biofuels, which can be good or bad depending on what is used to make them (corn is a no no) but will never be as plentifull as other more direct sources and will tend to result in monopolisation overtime. People need to talk with their wallets and focus on electric and hydrogen technology, and stop buying new cars as well as researching hydrogen conversion, electric conversion and hydrogen hybrids for existing viehicles.

If people can wake up to the technology and focus on getting it, we can have the world off oil in 5 years. And it really is a personal choice, don't buy a new car, ever, unless it burns the fuel you want. That will put economic pressure on those who hold patents for alternative stuff to take them out of mothballs.

As I write this CNN reports the Saudis are having a meeting to debate "unwarranted price hikes in oil", so you can see they are already starting to get edgy and realise that the energy cut off might not work in their interest this time, it's harder to pull off artificial scarcity in the information age.

I've been reading up on energy alternatives for a while and do realise now that this whole oil economy was one big con. The sooner we get off it the sooner we will have more widespread peace in the world, and can focus on the other less immediate problems.

Here is everything you wanted to know, and probably didn't want to know, about oil and our future...

A good conspiracy?

That the Allies had cracked the German Enigma code.

Even though Coventry had to be allowed to be wrecked as a result.

Remember that between 1939-1944, the Allies were losing, in places, very badly.
