But regardless of wether we are being lied to about Peak Oil or not, do you not think it would be advantagious to diversify our energy supply anyway?
Energy should be free, but at the moment we pay a high cost for it, morally, financially and depending on your scientific beliefs, enviromentally too.
Absolutely, I do.
We spend WAY too much money on the wrong things. While I understand the importance of protecting our country, the amount of money we spend on it is
absurd. A huge majority of the cost for the military is on FUEL, so if we found a better way create energy, that cost would drop significantly.
What we pay for food is not the cost of growing the food, it is the cost of petro derived fertilizers, gas for tractors, electricity for machinery and
gas to ship it to your nearest grocery store. If you removed all of that from the equation (or lowered the cost for energy), we would all be paying
pennies for food and could feed the entire planet, but that would reduce profit for those who use their money as a way to control things.
I believe that there is technology available that can remove oil from the energy equation, but it has dire consequences for the cartels, especially
the US since oil is traded in dollars and nothing else. If a new source of energy were released to the public, there would be no use for the dollar
anymore and those who use it as a form of control would lose their grip over us... and they will do everything in their power to prevent that from
happening. Hydrogen is the most abundant source of energy in the universe, and we have companies like Blacklight Power who are finding innovative ways
to convert it for regular use.
I see (and hope) the evolution in energy happening in a garage somewhere by a group of kids or young adults who will post their findings and
information somewhere like Youtube, sparking a complete world-wide revolution overnight. That is the only way the giants in control will fall,
otherwise, they will just be snuffed out like the rest.
