The skills which make the people you speak of good at what they are employed to do , are not exclusive to the job roles which they currently occupy.
Needless to say the persons who are flying choppers too and from rigs, are quite capable of getting any old piloting job, and contrary to opinion ,
there are not a small number of vacancies in that regard in other sectors. Similarly , if you can drill oil, then there are SEVERAL jobs you could go
out and get without a moments hesitation. It takes a hell of a lot of qualification , and expertise, and therefore anyone employed in that role will
be highly sought by all sorts of geological, and engineering firms to do work which doesnt have a catastrophic end result for human kind.
Further more, I have heard others worry about infrastructural support staff, like cable layers, call centre employees, electrical engineers and power
station employees. In my opinion, this sort of technology should only be handled by engineers and scientists ANYWAY , so there would still be power
stations, just more effective, less environmentaly damaging, and more cost effective ones. Therefore, there would still have to be cables, and call
centres and call out engineers and the paperwork that goes with them. The only difference would be that instead of paying through the nose for fuel
as well as customer support, the service provider would only need to/ be moraly capable of charging for, the customer support network which runs the
The only people who wouldnt benifit from this inovation would be the suits who control the oil. The men who do battle on paper, and destroy lives by
way of bank balances. They neither need, nor deserve our consideration in any way.
For the first time in history , access to power could be affordable for EVERYONE no matter how poor (in Britain people have died in the winter,
because they were afraid of getting big power bills if they turned on thier heating. They were mostly OAPs and therefore some of our most vunerable
citizens). With this technology in place, the people of the world would be MUCH better off, and able to put a more significant portion of thier income
into things like the schooling of thier children, feeding thier families wholesome good quality (read :expensive) food, and some of them being able to
afford to get away from thier desks for the first time in a decade. In other sectors, the governments of the world would be able to power thier
installations for peanuts, saving everyone money in tax. Every street lamp, saved on. Every office block, saved on. Every hospital, police station,
every single facet of government,and authority , making savings they can pass on to the citizens of the nations of the planet.
There are so many reasons to end our dependancy on fossil fuels, that to NOT take this technology for a ride is completely and utterly insane. Even
if you dont agree that global warming is partly human in origin, you must know that the fumes from vehicles are damaging to the health of the young?
If electricial power were cheaper, then more research would be undertaken by the car industry into its use as a primary , or sole power source for
vehicles, thereby creating a cleaner safer environment for our young, preventing carbon dioxide and monoxides from attacking our offspring at thier
most vunerable. Another reason to end our carbon dependancy is that politicaly speaking, it makes no sense to allow the price of oil to dictate what
happens to whom when. Wars have been fought, under banners of freedom, or vengance, over oil. Innocent people have died so that others might benifit
from a better supply of it, and others have died to deny oil to thier enemies. Should this stop now ? Or were we secretly enjoying the barbarism ?
The oil spill of the Gulf Of Mexico, ought to show that oil is , although easy to use, not a safe and therefore not a viable fuel source for the
If this Quantum Free Energy can be proven, reproduced, and industrialised, we could see a world where having the power to get up and go, to run a
home, run a nation, wouldnt see huge pitfalls in terms of danger to the environment , danger to the health of the young or those with cronic
respiratory problems, and wouldnt involve dependancy on unstable governments and territories, and further more would not depend on a minted few
dragging every last cent and penny from the pockets of people just trying to keep thier families healthy enough to one day leave the nest and make a
home of thier own.
The real question is, do you love oil that much that you fail to see the benifits of a fuel source which cannot be exploited? Do you love it that
much that even when it is running out, and costs you a hundred dollars or pounds to fill your car, are you still going to love it? If not, why the
hell arent you more in favour of this new tech and the potential it has? Wake up and smell the ...Oh wait, is that FRESH AIR ?
