How the west was won
It amazes me how we, as a race of beings, have survived for so long. Since time began there have been wars, weapons have been made to cause maximum damage to personnel and property with minimum risk. We “damaged” the ozone layer by using CFC’s, now we seem hell bent on destroying what’s left of the fragile Arctic ice by allowing companies to drill for oil. The technology has arrived for the next breed of electric cars, mobile video-phones that roll up to take up no more space than a pen.
We can be self sufficient with renewable electricity, and convert everyone easily, so that we are no longer reliant on fossil fuels and gas. Wind and water generated electricity has 3 big advantages over oil, coal and coke, 1. They are renewable so will not run out, 2. They are clean, and 3. Apart from the initial outlay, they operate for pennies a day.
Governments don’t want to use renewable sources and it begs the question why? Are they in the pockets of the energy companies who want to keep prices high to inflate their profits? If anyone knows the answer please drop me a line (preferably with chocolate on it) on a stamped undressed elephant to the usual address on planet earth.
