They didn't work. And yes, I've watched the documentaries and read a couple of books. Yes, he was smart. No, his grand idea just didn't work.

Was it even honestly tried? TPTB do NOT want free anything for the masses. They need their $$$ fix. How many inventions have been shelved for this reason we may never know.

We have efficient, safe inventions on the shelf right now that could solve most of our power needs.

Take liquid sodium nuclear reactors. They're safe. They're efficient. And when the Clinton Administration was offered them, he went with some bullshit, overpriced inefficient program, because that's what Bill did at every turn. We've never built one, outside of a couple of test reactors. The reactors running right now are old nuclear tech. We have far better, right now, ready to go.

We have extremely clean and efficient natural gas plants in CA that were turned off, that were brand new when they were powered down.

We don not have an invention problem. We have a liberalism problem that refuses to let new tech get built at all.

Agreed. But are they relatively inexpensive? If they require A LOT of $$$, globalhomos are involved.
