Our competition are the most
powerful people in the World. People have had virtual monopolies on energy
sources for decades. For the last thirty years, the United States has been
spending billions of dollars on subsidizing alternative sources of energy with
no clear alternatives in site.
Foreign oil countries and companies are demanding more money for their oil. Oil
companies report that there are 30 years of known oil reserve that is based
upon current usage. As the Peoples Republic of China, India, and other third
world countries move into 21st century, the demand for oil is going
to triple; and the reserves will be cut by a third to ten years.
Already the demand for oil is putting pressure on the price. Experts have projected
that oil prices will reach $180 dollars a barrel, which translates into $4.00
to $8.00 per gallon for gas at the pumps.
Additional competition comes from NASA, but not in the way you might expect.
Dr. Michael A'Hearn,
University of Maryland,
Impact Principal Investigator, slammed
NASA's 372 kilogram spacecraft
into the antimatter
9P/Tempel 1 comet on Monday, July 4, 2005. NASA's Hubble Space
captured the collision between the 372 kilogram projectile released by
NASA's Deep Impact spacecraft and the antimatter 9P/Tempel 1 comet along with
the spectacular nineteen-hour show. Lucky for humanity, the explosions blasted
the spacecraft into million of pieces rather than the comet into trillions of
The collision confirmed that
are composed of antimatter or
mirror matter. This
is the greatest discovery since mankind
discovered fire thousands of years ago. The Mirror Energy
produced from the Deep Impact projectile's annihilation was 67 billion
Giga-joules using Einstein's equation, E = mc2. This is equivalent to
all the energy used in the World for one year.
Kyoto Accord is an international treaty that countries, who
have signed the agreement, have agree to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases. It is a very complex agreement
that allows trading pollution credits. If it is cheaper to reduce emissions in
country A, then country B can buy the pollution credits from country A, and have them count
toward its own quota of reductions. Basically, it is a welfare program to give
the poor countries money to accept another country's pollution.
