The lack of use of our natural resources: wind turbines, solar panels and water, does boil down to one thing:
G R E E D.
You see, major oil and gas companies are not going to happily agree to reducing their own wealth in favor of switching to environmentally friendly energy options. Why the hell would they do that when they can line their pockets with money from oil and gas sales?
These big corporations give huge campaign contributions to politicians who do not push green energy because, they, too, are greedy mother effers. Mother, as in mother nature.
It would cost way too much money for big businesses to change their way of production of products by installing green energy options to run their factories, so they are not going to do it.
What we need is FUNDING for those start-up companies who run a green energy efficient factory producing green energy products. Face it, the technology to create and install green energy options are not super hard intellectual property, nor are those alternatives expensive to produce. So, we can very well move forward to making these energy efficient methods mandatory for new construction and give incentives to make changes for existing residential and commercial and industrial overhauls to wiser energy choices.
But, too many people are making too much money on gas and oil and their by-products.
This has become a political matter, when, in fact, THE PEOPLE should take more control and go into business making green energy more readily available. This is where I think we have to depend on our youth who are innocent to this mess we have created for them. It is they who should have the power and motivation to make changes because it is not going to happen otherwise. Our current leaders, Fortune 500 companies, the oil industry and greed are in control of producing and making green energy readily available to everyone. But, why would they when their wealth would be in jeopardy to do so?
