Swift Boat to freedom ads can sum up how its done.
When the dust settles we realize what a lie it all was but it would be after say Diebold changed the election map.
Do you think anyone that needs the internet beamed to them in this crap will be a useful paying customer? The cost of a laden swallow, gripping it by the husk, vs energy costs, repair, maintenance, and insurance will certainly make this in the end, what it appears to be now.
Perhaps the smartest decided a business degree was simpler, paid more, and had less fail written all over it. I'm certainly not encouraging my kids to get a "I'm a manager degree. " Yea they could probably make more short term in IT for a few years, but having lived through several booms and busts, I'm looking back at the promises and lies. It would have been much easier and cost effective to just take the first management position and work into retirement at the hospital or bank or retail corp or manufacturer or any of the other places I worked at in the past in IT.
I love this statement.
Certainly getting a higher level of education trumps all of this, but not everyone is above average.
I'd rather have people gaming vs Drinking and driving. I'd throw in an requirement they should all have a job of some sort, oddly enough I find most older gamers are disabled or X military. Which means they will probably all grow out of it when they run out of food in the basement.
When the crap hits the fan though, I'm sure you will be first in line demanding those same NSA or US gov troops protect you from those Chinese and Russian tanks, troops, sci corp, etc...
We spent years building Democracies and some security so our businesses can sell it to the highest bidder for a short term bonus check. Do not look at the US gov to stop this, its been bought and paid for by big interest groups.
In the end its not the power generation that is the issue, we can do that, its the storage of that energy for when its not abundant, such as Night time in the winter months. Wind isn't consistent enough to guarantee this, so figure out the storage issues and we can move along with clean energy.
Figure out how to transport/store Hydrogen economically and safely. The rest will solve itself.
