Again, great thread.
To answer the title of the thread, yes.. absolutely!
Solutions are never as easy as the status quo.
That is the biggest obstacle, and one that has to be addressed before the conversation can even
be had about alternative energy.
We are addicted to oil, and not just for gas. I don't think people realize that almost everything in their life is centered around oil.
I am typing this reply on an oil enhanced/produced product.
EDUCATION! Proving in a simple way to people how much they would benefit from an alternative form of energy.
If you only turn one person on to alternative energy, you have started something.. even if it is only one out of 10,000. That person is then
dedicated and will then turn one person on out of the next 10,000 and so it goes. Movements do not start in mass, but rather with a single person
I feel a lot of wars are fought over natural resources, even if it is an underlying reason that isn't really seen. Think of all the money spent in
the current wars of the US.. imagine if all that was put into what they were seeking in the first place.. Natural Resources. We are not fighting
against terrorist, we are fighting for natural resources. Morning radio was buzzing about Afghanistan's newly found.. you guessed it.. natural
resources this morning. You could hear the lust for money on their lips. Oh what fools we breed into the folly.
I'm a fan of getting rid of government, it is a roadblock to progress. Power seekers are money seekers, and they are never out for anything that
will better mankind. Some may not agree with that, but that is me.
I'll stop here, I gotta pee.
Thanks for starting this conversation, it is needed, and well received as a message by at least myself.
