What is really sad here, a fact that few are aware of, is that for many decades NUMEROUS energy inventions could have generated electricity for the human race without the use of ANY nuclear, fossil (coal, oil, or NG), biomass, or solar fuel.
For at least fifteen years the human race could be driving cars fueled with water (see Stan Meyer and Daniel Dingel on YouTube), and FOR DECADES electricity could be generated “for free” (essentially without the use of any fuel).
There is a long history of the systematic suppression of numerous “free energy” AND “reduced energy needed” inventions in the U.S. BY OUR OWN GOVERNMENT.
Years ago a brave investigative reporter named Gary Vesperman compiled a list of instances suppression of this ilk (energy invention). He then continued to upgrade this list over time as he learned more. (Gary Verperman’s material on energy invention suppression is easily found on the Internet by Googling for it as per: suppression energy invention Gary Vesperman. Other persons have contributed in this regard as well.)
Sadly, our government has repeatedly denied the public of the fruit of inventive genius over and over again, and always seems to rule in favor of “the corporations”.
Both the enormous environmental catastrophe in the Gulf last year, and this new enormous environmental catastrophe in Japan, never had to happen. These disasters never had to happen if numerous energy invention ideas were properly acted upon (by governments all over the world) as these inventions occurred, instead of ALL of these discoveries being systematically suppressed.
I find it ludicrous that our President, our Vice President, and our Secretary of State (Obama, Biden, and Hilliary) have said numerous times in the past months to “not worry about America” because we are a free and inventive society, and “Innovation” will pull us out of the deep fiscal hole we are in. Don’t these three persons know that VIRTUALLY ALL TRUE INNOVATION in the energy invention arena HAS BEEN SUPPRESSED by our own government for many decades?… just as ALL TRUE INNOVATION HAS BEEN SUPPRESSED for many decades in medical/healing arena as well. (The only things that are not suppressed are things that “make some corporation(s) a lot of money”.)
The human race seems to be on the edge of a cliff. I pray it wakes up soon enough to reinvent its governance to actually serve the health of this planet and its people.
