An economic system that does not constrain ideas grows
organically. A trial here, a test there, more of the same if it
is profitable. It looks messy but has an advantage: lots of
ideas get tried. Those that are good enough get replicated.
Organic growth and change are best. Even in industrial systems.

Oh I'm a big believer in the market ... but don't like the
whipsaw corrections when people suddenly discover an error in
their economic logic.
All those little things I mentioned above (electric cars,
hybrids, boidiesel, ethanol, hydrogen) are at the fringes. The
bulk of America is out there driving along at 20 mpg (latest
I've heard recently that Ford's current product Hydrea Cost line averages
poorer mpg than a ford model A.
Indirect, organic, market adjustment might have worked (past
tense) if we had been real about our oil supplies.
Instead, we get to see a little of that old time Creative
Destruction. Some in this thread might even find themselves on
the wrong end of it ... and I've always said that creative
destruction is more fun to watch than to live.

Boy, reading some of the delusional posts here makes me think
we should call it "Intelligent Energy" Hydrea Online Pharmacy -- that's the kind that
senses when you're running out it, and then it replenishes
Several mentioned various alternative energy resources but
without considering the fact that they are all made using
non-renewable fossil and fission fuels. Not-yet-working
alternatives like fusion also require limited resources Buy Hydrea like
helium (for superconducting magnets). Helium cannot made and is
instead extracted from a small number of oil and gas wells, and
is on similar depletion curves to oil. Because of this, the
price of renewables is likely to go up, not down as fossil
fuels and other limited resources deplete.
For example, Hydrea London the price of silicon photoelectric cells has been
going up the past year (25%). This was explained as simple
supply/demand by the NYT. The real situation is a little more
complicated. Current generation photoelectric cells (the kind
already on satellites decades ago) are made from silicon
crystal rejects from the semiconductor industry. These have
started to get scarce as forward-thinking well-to-do
Californians have been installing them like no tomorrow. This
is simple supply/demand. But as the throwaways are depleted,
the price will likely go up even more because the throwaways
were being sold for less than they cost to make. Third, if
fossil fuel prices continue their rise (oil back up to
$66/barrel today), the price of silicon photoelectric cells
will go up yet further.
Now, of course, there are other solar techs on the way,
invented by number-loving people who did their homework
problems, such as CIGS (copper/indium/gallium/selenium)
photoelectric cells sputtered onto thin metal (the way harddisk
surfaces are made), and solar-concentrator-driven Stirling
engines. And hopefully, there will be enough indium and gallium
(elements, which as the alchemists long ago discovered are very
hard to make), and hopefully, the price of renewable energy
will eventually stabilize when renewable energy devices (and
mining, and steel production, etc, etc) all begin Hydrea 500 to be done
using renewable energy.
It's important to keep a positive attitude. From a recent
And so, while the end-of-the-world scenario will be rife with
unimaginable horrors, we believe that the pre-end period will
be filled with unprecedented opportunities for profit
