They crush them...like bugs...with the legislation they get pushed through to keep the "status quo"

If our laws and tax incentives were not so heavily geared to oil production and refinery and instead leaned more towards alternative forms of energy maybe tech like this would have a chance.

...the fact is it's going to get buried though - in the same room with the other half a million ideas people have come up with to produce cheap energy without fossil fuels...

Plasma fusion becomes a reality?


rt.com

Scientists in a New Jersey laboratory say they are close to a major breakthrough in the field of fusion that they predict will soon allow for an unlimited source of the cheapest, cleanest and safest energy ever.
Researchers at Lawrenceville Plasma Physics in Middlesex, NJ have published the results of their recent work in the Physics of Plasmas journal last week, and expect one of their next rounds of testing to finally tackle an issue of energy procurement that would rival anything already avai

I like the Helium-3 Reactor better.

Few parts and it's very safe.

Lets see now. Where can i find some Helium-3?

It seems like every couple of months some scientist makes this claim yet here we are, still burning fossil fuels.....


if oil companies could have a monopoly in solar power and in doing so create massive profits...we would all be using solar power within 5 years. it's all about the benjamins

You realize I said venture capitalists for a reason right? If there is an alternative energy out there that is profitable there is nothing a lobbyist can do to stop it.

Not to say that they aren't being subsidized already:


When it comes to U.S. venture capital funding for the most promising new green technology firms, there’s California and there’s everybody else.

California companies raked in $2.8 billion, or 57%, of the $4.9 billion in venture capital offered up in the so-called clean-tech category of funding nationwide last year, according to a recently released analysis from Ernst & Young.

I hope your right - I agree that VC is likely the only viable solution to establishing an infrastructure that depends on an alternative to fossil fuels.

Money solves a lot of problems - unfortunately for us though oil is currently a very profitable venture...

Until that dynamic changes the profitable form of energy and the more efficient form of energy are two completely different matters.

Idiots who use the "the oil companies will be run out of business"

Are idiots.
You do realize that they could finance the science themselves, and basically fire everybody except the top dogs of the oil company, and emerge as the top dogs of the newly founded solar company.

It's because it's no profit
