Reducing the dependency upon technology would be idealistic or utopian, but as the world gets more polluted perhaps would be a clever solution. Of course that returning to a more natural way of life will take time and peoples’s willingness. We are pressed for time. Nature is at a critical point, and so is humanity. Water is rapidly disappearing as eighty percent of the green spaces have already vanished. Modern conveniences have made many of us unfit, fat, and spoiled. I do not mean to chastice mankind but to motivate it to seek an healthy alternative.
Electricity being transmitted by land and water is putting tremenduous stress upon Nature. Instead it should be transmited through the air, by satellites. When an ice storm hit Quebec, Canada, some five years ago,and froze the electrical cables, leaving people without power for a month, innovative measures should have been taken to prevent this from happening again. Yet no change, or innovation happended. Why? Innovation costs money, and greedy forces are at play to prevent new inventive ways to offer solutions to problems at all societal levels.
Satellites could absorb the energy from the star of our solar system, the Sun, which has infinite amounts of energy, and second, beam this electricity down to receptors on Earth. This would cease the need for nuclear power, coal and oil.
Back in the beginning of the twentieth century, Nikola Tesla, the inventor of the alternate electrical current,had invented an electric car. An idea that was rejected by the robber barons such as J.P. Morgan, and Rockfeller. Had they not been so greedy, the world would not be facing now the problem of global warming, and the war in Iraq. And who knows how many wars this need for oil could still originate. China,and India with populations bordering closer to 2.5 billion and 1.5 billion people respectively are going to increase their demand for oil. Specially now, that TATA Chemicals Limited released the NANO, a cheap gaz powered car to the masses. Automobiles are by far the greatest polluters and contributers of the greenhouse effect in our atmosphere.
It is well known that the oceans’s currents are what regulate the temperature in our planet.Oil spills in the Oceans mean pollution and cancerigenous chemicals raining down over the continents. This translates into food being contaminated with heavy metals. No wonder so many children suffer from respiratory diseases, and birth abnormalities. According to quantum physics, everything in Nature is connected, even at subatomic levels, spanning the entire globe. The pollution is going to be unbelievable. Again the corporate president of TCL, Mr. Ratan Tata chose to ignore innovation, and the environment. Profit, under the desguise of goodwill, is the main fuel that makes corporations repeat the same designs over and over, but with a different facade. Regardless of the cost that Nature will be paying, and the humankind they persist with a technology that should have never been adopted. We must not forget that whatever we do to Nature we do it to ourselves. We too are part of Nature, without it we cannot exist.
The lack of vision is appaling. When the EV1,a carbon free car, by General Motors, was introduced into the US market, back in 1996, the Bush presidency, in cahoots with the Saudis, killed it. This influence of the OPEC countries, and the complicity of the US government, together with major car makers is, literally, making impossible the reality of green technologies. Greed is killing our planet, and it is now the time to put a stop to it, before it is too late to fix Mother Earth, and our future.Author :
