I think the more innovative our scientists are for finding ways to store power the better for the world over but, despite however brilliant some of
these inventions are, they always seem controlled by government because he who controlls our power sources has a huge controln over the masses and
the profits from power are enormous.
Most ordinary people immediately hope these inventions will be made available but not one of our governments is altruistic enough to let this control
slip. In the UK when we heard about fracking and the dropping of the cost of fuel it had effected in the USA it seemed like a real solution.
However, the tests in the South were not only carried out in one of our exclusive villages where people like my Cousin an ex JP lived, so all hell
would be guaranteed to break out when the machines started working on the beautiful landscape there, but we were told by some 'expert' that in the
UK things are very different and we were not like the USA (all land here and its mineral rights belong to the Crown, so it certainly could not be
'giving' benefits to us as we would ideally have expected.
We also had a very innovative little factory in The Isle of Wight making fantastic small wind turbines to fit onto one's house, top of blocks of
flats etc but - once the public got interested and wanted cheaper electricity and a bit of control by making their own power, suddenly the factory
could not get any further funding to expand and it went out of business. So no-one could benefit from its very clever idea.
There is a terrible vested interest in oil still and until that 'interest' is changed or goes away, we will in all honesty be unlikely to see much
of any of these new inventions. Wave power for countries with tidal waters seems to be an ideal non-polluting and reliable source of power, but
hardly any research is carried out into that and I wonder why? Sorry to sound so sceptic and, if we do see the tide change in favour of these
inventions, I will be one of the first to cheer.
