power will allow
(and the world) to address and solve many of the vexing Social/Economic
problems facing us:
- Solar, wind, and biomass-derived energy provide the
virtually limitless energy needed to drive the engines of industry.
- With sufficient affordable non-polluting power
available, the economy of every country could potentially thrive.
- Increased production enables increased consumption
- Increased employment follows rising production and
- An abundant productive capacity eases the burden of

tools of production to support large group efforts
- Dams, roads, research, and defense
- This vision is only possible with plentiful and
affordable energy available to combine with capital, raw materials,
labor, and land.
- Plentiful and cheap energy can make universal recycling
- Energy applied to toxic or salty water
(desalinization) can produce the pure water needed to expand the
available productive land.
