Solar Energy And Alternative Energy Devices – The Solution To A Global Crisis Of High Energy Costs2 min read
We have all fallen prey for decades to the power brokers of the oil and power generation industries. Politicians have paid lip service to the principles of going green, solar energy and alternative energy but have done little to change the influence of the old energy establishment.
It all starts with an upper layer of Oil Producing Countries primarily of middle eastern origin with little sympathy for the west that are determined to extract the highest profit for their crude oil. This is in order to provide a future buffer for their nations lavish living standards when the oil deposits finally run out.
These Oil Producing Nations sell their crude to a second layer of Multinational Mining Corporations and Refineries who also take their pound of flesh in high margins before selling off downstream to the Electric Companies and Petroleum Distributors.
Add to the mix the power generation monopolies backed by state contracts and laws and supported by bankers who face little risk of losing a penny by financing them. Nothing comes closer to a profit guarantee as both parties margins are predetermined by a steady pattern of demand and protected by penalty of disconnection.
Consumers must pay the rate imposed with little recourse or protest and few persons can exist today without modern electrical conveniences. Even when there is competition, electricity rates rarely differ much between competing producers.
The idea that efficient production and distribution of energy could be sustainable by a monopoly of a handful of power companies is flawed and contradicts basic economic theory that teaches diversity and competition as the main factors of efficiency.
All told, this pyramid of profit has resulted in a looming energy crisis whose impact has contributed to a few other global crises.These include the war on terror, the war on drugs, human trafficking, global warming, ozone depletion, deforestation and the world financial meltdown. All of which arise from the global inflation triggered by oil price hikes and its crippling effect on the energy based industries of client nations.
Surprisingly the solution to the world energy crisis is fairly simple.
i.e. CUT DEMAND AND DEPENDENCY ON OIL AND THE PRICE WILL FALL FLAT ON IT’S FACE!
How do we do this you might ask and again the answer is simple.
A paradigm shift in conventional behavior by consumers worldwide in electricity production allowing for a major percentage increase in available energy from homesteads. The technology already exists, right now in fact for every household to become a net energy producer by way of solar and alternative energy devices. If each private home was equipped with enough alternative energy devices to cut their external consumption by a half it would eliminate the world energy crisis amongst others.
Some call this initiative “Going Green” but this is a very mild term for a campaign that is as critical and urgent as the rescue of the world from the Tyranny of Adolf Hitler.
