But as it is, we're not even concerned with finding alternative fuels that can be used on a global scale. We're putting all our money into finding
ways to maximize the efficiency of our current energy sources, which in the end turns out to be counter-productive. The hydrogen age could already be
here if we weren't busy spending trillions of dollars every year to get oil over here in the US. Just my 2 cents.
Your two cents is money well spent. You're on to it. energy is where it's at. Cheap energy, easily had, will make a country, planet, or better yet,
We sure had a run with this and if we could come up with something .quick and easy like hydrogen, kryptonite , something, that would be great I
personally think we should be scouring that Tesla stuff. But hey who knows.
Oh yeah, oil's the problem alright. We are oil. And oil ain't growing. No Actually running short. This a rather complex equation, but let's start
from here.There's a lot of oil. Just falls a little short sometimes.And after all we do live in a "just in time system". and the delivery of oil is
a complex system. Things can happen, things break down. supply that is ready and on the road, gets thin, Prices go up to slacken demand (and increase
cash, ohu yeah.) the economy takes a hit, and things go down hill from there.
You bettcha. If we had some kind of free unlimited magical energy at our finger tips ready to go , sh**t we could all sit back and take it easy. And
life would be grand.
So you're really sold on this hydrogen thing, huh. Hey buddy, I don't know nothing about this hydrogen thing but I sure hope it works out like you
You nailed it with that last one, "trillions of dollars every year just to get oil over here." I think that pretty much explains our current
predicament.What a drain on our economy. That stuff ain't cheap no more.
Did I say I'd be looking into that Tesla stuff.
