Ok. Nuclear not looking so good these days. Petroleum? Er, that’s why we need the military. Coal? Domestic but yucky. Natural gas? Cleaner but is still carbon and oh that fracking. (And can’t regulate it – no siree). Wind? Bad for birds, and when it’s not windy, well… Solar? Still a expensive but may be too late – China is kicking our butts.
So, what to do, what to do?! Well, there is another option according to some people who think a lot about these things… It’s clean. It’s plentiful. It’s safe. But, if you’re at all normal, you’ve never heard of it. (kidding).
One tiny detail… No one knows how make it commercially viable yet, but other countries are full speed ahead while the US is just dabbling. Countries like China, Korea, a European consortium, and India.
Some say this IS the energy of the future. It’s just a matter of whether we make it or buy it. Probably from the Chinese. Like everything else.
