The fossil fuel industry has been known to buy out inventions or patents that that threaten their industry usually paying out big bickies to the inventors.
So going on that theory, will they allow clean energy to be developed to apoint where fosil fuels becomes redundant.
You know carbon tax, AGW and clean energy that kind of stuff.
Will they allow their $2 trillion + /annum industry to go down the gurgler just like that?
Especially to some form of energy where a meter just can't be attached to it?
Car engines that run on water?
