On TV, I have been seeing a lot of ads saying we have lots of oil in California. This is the kind of thinking that has us where we are today. They should be saying that we have more sun then oil in California, and it's cheaper, cleaner and safer.
Out of the two, what moron would pick oil? We just burn it up into the air, and make big, big messes moving it from "A" to "B."
With solar, you just build a solar plant — it pays for itself in less than a year. It lasts over a hundred years and it's "free" energy. And this is the problem — it's free.
There is no reason that anyone should be paying for energy. All of this should have been done years ago. And how about Howard Johnson's magnet motor, invented in the '70s and patented in 1979? Only one reason for not doing the right thing — greed!
