That's a nice speech he did. I'm sure glad it was real and not just another movie.
Because you know there're so many blowhards in the movies.
But anyway, if having a clean and fair world was as easy as it was in the movies, we would have it already. Tom Cruise would have probably beat up all
the bad guys and managed to steal the secret perpetual motion device to feed our civilization with limitless green energy. Luckily, movies don't need
to follow the laws of physics. That's what makes them so fun to watch.
There's no clean way currently to feed our civilization. Best we can do is either clean up our coal emissions at the source (taking a hit in the price
of energy) or switch to nuclear. Either way, there's a tremendous cost to clean up our air and keep waste where it belongs. Switching to wind or solar
or geothermal is unworkable; too expensive. Nothing is free in the real world.
So long as conservation of energy exists we will have to earn what we get. If you can break the law of conservation of energy/matter then we could
become immortal and equal.
That would be the start of a good movie. Hmm... I love breaking the laws of physics!
