Lou, from Sinclair link provided, "High quality global journalism requires investment."
The same, in spades, applies to energy production. Fossil fuels, based on centuries worth of experience and infrastructure are able to generate steady returns by offloading massive liabilities on future generations.
The technologies capable of replacing fossil fuels currently generate little to no revenue and in some cases are only at the conceptual stage. They have the potential however to save future generations trillions and produce trillions in revenue down the long development road.
Surely to God, the financial geniuses who have figured out how to build massively profitable companies based on the prospect that I might read, let alone then buy something based on that reading, an advertisement on some search engine or social networking site, can figure out how to monetize future saving of trillions and revenues no less grand.
Would that I could figure this one out but its way over my head. I will have to be content with working on the solution, which Dr. Paul Curto, former Chief Technolgist with NASA, points out, " is by far the most balanced means to face the challenge of global warming. It is also the one that requires the greatest investment to meet its potential. It is a most intriguing answer that can save us from Armageddon."
