A look at the energy cartels and how do we deal with the coming changes

With the coming collapse of the old guard, their robber baron mentality and it's continued worshiping upon the altar of profit; a new future beckons.  

With green tech and a human based government its backbone, looking at fostering not only the reasurgance of America but a world colition with a global currency.  Right now the nations are being slowly dragged kicking and screaming to the table. But in the end there will likely be a new currency developed.

In this new "world order" how does America maintain it's "superpower status?  Through energy. By becoming the new supplier.  Energy has always been truly the real currency. By creating a broard array of new sources, we can become the new Saudi Arabia.  

Not only the Green Technologies but we need to build orbiting space colonies whose primary industry is building power satelites.

Satelites that beam microwave energy converted from sunlight to fields of rectennas (based in deserts or low population areas) that convert it back into electrical energy for pennies on the dollar. Plus think of spin off technologies, zero g crystals for electronics, new pharmecuticals, mining ventures around the asteroid belts.

Energy is cheap up there, we just have to pay for the intial start up.

The future need not be a Soylent Green ending but the birth of a new society where energy is cheap and plentiful.  If energy is not an issue, the overall standard of living will increase and old energy monopolies will die, replaced by something not seen in human history.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    It hopefully will go that way.  I think you're right in some way about the new currency or we could just keep the old currencies but have a fixed exchange rate (which would amount to the same thing).  Something like that will have to happen because once nations and people start dumping dollars all hell will break loose.  And I truly hope we can start edging into space because it's starting to get a little mucked up around here.  Thanks for the slightly more visionary diary than we usually see in these parts.

        But the first step would be to not be willing to accept it.

        They'll try regional currencies first - perhaps 3 to 5 of them.

        Then a consolidation down to a single currency would be more feasible.  Not desirable, but feasible.
