Lol, don't you think that time is coming? oil is going bye bye, my friend.
No, it is not, that is, unless you persist in believing oil comes from dead
and that a perpetual motion machine
is possible. Yeah, it
IS Wiki, but it's just meant as kind of a drive by shot at the subjects.
Of course, "Big Oil" is blamed for suppressing all these gee-whiz, let's just violate the laws of physics for fun, kind of inventions, but that
idea is absurd. First, the US government makes more money in taxes off a gallon of gasoline than Big Oil does. If you're going to blame Big Oil for
their "massive" (not) profits, you'd better go ding on Apple Computer, too, whose gross profit margin is over THREE TIMES that of Big Oil. It;s
just that Big Oil makes a lot of gas. Go look up "profit margins by industry" some time and you'll see what I mean.
But Big Oil isn't in the oil business anyway, and they know it. They're in the energy business--any energy, and don't you think the profit
potential for making "free energy devices" is huge? Just take the develkoped world for starters. It would be bigger than the PC revolution. There
are trillions of dollars to be made. If there really were a "free energy device" the size of my heat pump, I'd pluck down $40,000 for one tomorrow.
From a Return on Investment scenario, it's a no-brainer. In less than ten years, probably a LOT less than ten years, they'd be selling for $4000,
then $1000, then $400.
You have to be able to explain these free energy devices in terms of their physics BEFORE you go starting to blame a conspiracy, and no one, ever, has
been able to do that.
