Oil is very important to the existence of our country. Without oil and gas we could not drive our cars, heat our homes, and have the many synthetic plastic products that are derivatives of oil. Viva la Oil! But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t develop what a famous scientist a hundred years ago hit on – Tesla. He was working on cord-less electricity that could light and heat our homes. If America were smart, it would put a chunk of taxpayer money down on such a project.
