I think the problem is simpler even: everyone knows that oil money is the biggest in the world, or close to it. People who have oil have power. They
have power on everything, because everyone so far still need oil.
Everyone also knows that people around the world, for decades, have created good electrical engines, engines that run on water, coleseed, ... It is
then obvious why they were not developed...
Also, on the oil reserve: the current techniques of oil extraction work primarily because of the pressure in the deepness of the soil where oil is.
The University of Mons-Hainaut, in Belgium, back in the years 1995-1996 (I'm not there anymore now, so I don't know the end of it), started a
project called Materia Nova, which was dealing amongst others with oil extraction. Their findings were that injecting some gas (sorry don't remember
which one) through the drills would allow to multiply by 5 the amount of oil usable...
In fact, the raw oil is quite "inside" rocks for 80% of it, and that gas would be more easily adsorbed (not absorbed) by the rocks, then freeing raw
oil... Conclusion: no need for any other means of propulsion than oil yet. Money still wins...
Anyone with news on that welcome to post.
