Being the optimistic pessimist here, I say it's about freaking time we started looking for alternatives to our petroleum dependancy.... but at the
same time I will state my opinion and say that it's too bad it isn't Joe's Little Station Down the Road Gives Everyone Free Gas!
one of the BO corporate entities like Shell or Exxon/Mobil... that wouldn't be good for the mainstream media to have a headline like that anyway,
methinks. Not too many people are running about with HFC vehicles at the moment, so I wonder... in all seriousness how Big Oil has their fingers in
this grand pie in the sky.
On that notion, petroleum will still be needed... in some areas of production, plastics.. etc. and mainly for lubrication of the
Internal Combustion Engine
found in all automobiles... either way, Big Oil still has us on something... there will be no free ride this time.
You and I all know that they will not give up their profit margins and let you and I have a mode of transportation that we ourselves can more or less
provide fuel for without any kickbacks to them... right? Therein lies the bigger picture.... and I have often wondered about that. Let's just
hypothetically imagine that in 20 years from now, the infrastructure exists and 75% of all of the vehicles on the road are Hydrogen fueled, what then?
AFAIK in the simplest terms, all you really need is water... so what then? There is no and I mean NO
way that the powers that be will allow it
to be de-regulated to that extent... the monopoly that begun the past 60 or so years ago (needs research) will not go silently into the night. If it
was that easy, everyone would have it... and the empire that they had built up would crumble before their very eyes.
it were that easy, who is to say that the worlds water supply would become valued to the point where it was traded X barrels at X$ on the NYSE... or
better yet, that fancy gas, erm Hydrogen cap patent belongs to well.... I will leave that up to your imagination. Without it, we aint' going
I'm not trying to rain on the parade, just pondering WHO will profit from this if and when it gets developed fully... any thoughts?
