Just think what would happen to the world economy, if someone mass produced a little power plant, that supplied all of the energy requirements for your home, or car. AND made it extremely affordable.
I'm guessing, but probably 35 to 40% of the worlds work force would be out of a job.
Just imagine the ramifications to that!
It would be a better world if we could survive the required adjustment, but there wold be much pain!

The only problem i have with the 'big pharma wont make money off it so it wont be used' argument is that this only seems to apply to America where cost is the responsibility of the patient. Not every countries health system runs this way. Here in the UK we have a national health system. Its all payed for by the government , granted this is ultimately coming from the average Joe on the streets in taxes but the price of cancer care is a huge burden on our national health system. Doctors here and in other countries of the world are constantly looking for ways to reduce medical costs so they can provide better care for their patients in other areas. There are some anti cancer drugs that you just cant get prescribe over here because of their cost even though they a are reported to be very effective. Its constantly in the news at the moment over here. Doctors would be only to glad to prescribe something cheaper than chemo if they could.
Doctors are on the whole not evil people and don't like putting their patients though painful dangerous therapies.edit on 4-8-2012 by PhoenixOD because: (no reason given)
In 2001, Nova Scotian Rick Simpson discovered that a cancerous spot on his skin disappeared within a few days of applying an essential oil made from marijuana. Since then, Simpson and others have treated thousands of cancer patients with incredible success. Researchers in Spain have confirmed that THC, an active compound in marijuana, kills brain-tumor cells in human subjects and shows promise with breast, pancreatic and liver tumors. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, however, classifies marijuana as a Schedule I drug, meaning that it has no accepted medical use, unlike Schedule II drugs, like coc aine and methamphetamine, which may provide medical benefits. What a buzzkill.

What we need is a group on ATS with time and money to carry on one of these projects and vigorously document the whole thing. Keep the team strong in numbers and strong in faith. A small group of people with little public interest is a lot easier to suppress than a whole site. There are plenty of great minds on ATS and I'm sure plenty of money.. couldn't we work something out?
Go team ATS!!
And it really doesn't matter what country has free healthcare, pharma doesn't care if it's coming out of your pocket or out of the government's.

So, you'd instantly become a trillionaire and that would only be the beginning this route, since you'd still be getting money for maintinance, bigger units, and integrating special versions of your technology with other things (cars, phones, computers, consumer electronics, satellites, etc, etc, etc.).
OR, option 2:
"Suppress" the technology and keep selling less good alternatives, and make billions.

Nothing to see here guys..just go back to your 9-5..pay your taxes..and further dissolve yourself into this acid of a system. Anyone that thinks will be terminated, if your against the system ideology, you will be labeled terrorists, or conspirator. You speak when your told, eat when the clock tells you, and watch when media forces you.
