What we are seeing are exponential improvements in the efficiency of solar, the cost of solar, and the installation of solar. “Put these numbers together and you find that solar has improved its cost basis by 5,355 times relative to oil since 1970,” Seba said. “Traditional sources of energy can’t compete with this.”
Despite decades of petrochemical propaganda, the Oil Age is ending with a whimper, not a bang.
After decades of lies to make us believe that WE NEED OIL to survive, and therefore must do everything we can to protect “cheap” foreign oil by maintaining the largest military in the world, propping up third world dictatorships, and torturing anybody who doesn’t blindly support those dictatorships, the truth is now clear to all but the most corrupt fools.
Imagine if we had actually followed the advice of President Carter, who installed solar panels on the White House in 1979 and wanted to end our dependence on petroleum, instead of diving head first into the Oil Wars of President Reagan, who removed those solar panels in 1986 and sold our country to the Military Industrial Oil Complex.
