We all know the US would never have cared some much for what’s going on the middle east, where it not for the oil reserves it sits on.
Yet we (most of us) quietly accept the US and it’s allies waging war in the region for the sake of control over oil.
But the US are not alone in exercising control over energy sources. Vladimir Putin uses the valves of the Russian gas pipes to straighten out former Soviet Union members, like Ukraine, and several former East block countries are uneasy with this fact.
And what would Hugo Chavez be on the world scene without oil? This goes for the members of the Saudi royal family as well, and the answer is: Not much.
So an important step towards peace on this planet, will be to actualize an energy source that
1) no man/organization/state controls
2) is renewable,
3) does not create harmful waste when used.
No small challenge, of course, yet necessary to for a future without todays conflicts.
