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.
