Research and Political influence

“Fitness for use”

Definition: Effectiveness of a design, manufacturing method, and support process employed in delivering a good, system, or service that fits a customer's defined purpose, under anticipated or specified operational conditions.” This must include affordability of the product.


                “Industry is more than willing to risk research dollars on technologies that show real promise, but it is not willing to flush shareholder money down a rat hole.


Politicians, however, operate from different incentives. When a crisis, real or imagined, makes headlines, they want voters to see them doing “something” about it, and they must move quickly because election cycles and constituent attention spans are short.

Funding long-term research in promising technologies is not sufficient to meet politicians’ needs. Solar panels, wind turbines, and ethanol refineries are all current technology, and can be erected quickly with fanfare and photo-ops. 

By the time these alternative power sources prove to be financial (or not) and, possibly, environmental busts, the politicians will have been re-elected and voters’ attention will have shifted to the next crisis.”

Climate change is being used by Corporate bodies to maximise profits. Electricity costs more now as you use less. What created this? The ECO industry. With America's economy going down the drain, and China gaining the upper hand, emerging technology became the answer. While ECO energy sounds great, the limitations are so great that Coal fired power stations or Nuclear are needed for permanent backup. So in reality the ECO systems are only show pieces with nothing to add in efficiency. Solar of course will generate electricity during the day, and save you some money, but others are picking up the bill with increased power prices.
And who is paying the most?
The poor are!
Car industries have gone,
Aluminum smelters? Gone! 
Jobs? Gone. 
Drug sales are rampant, as jobs have disappeared.
