How to non-violently embarrass your international competition (shhhh. I mean "enemies"), especially if they call themselves a world super power, and you can’t.

How to non-violently embarrass your international competition (shhhh. I mean "enemies"), especially if they call themselves a world super power, and you can't.

How to creatively and non-violently redefine life as we know it.

So… Here it is.

First step for the undefined country.

1 Find out what they want.
2 Find out what you want.
3 Fund a "manhattan project" for energy research.
     3.1 Make different teams, with very different projects.
     3.2 Make sure the funding is deep.
     3.3 Don't let existing industry get their greasy fingers into this pot.
4 Have the researchers get lots of credit for their discovery.
5 License this newly developed technology to industry.
6 Make lots of money and gain new power.

If this strategy were carried out by any country that had a solid base of engineers and scientists, this could work.

I would be very happy if the US france UK russia, etc would all have their own, but these nations seem to be pre-occupied with oil/gas wars. If they are involved with the resolution of these issues, it is being done by private industry. IMO this is not enough.

I could see this working wonders in about 3 years tops if the project was launched now. If it takes much longer, I could see a few technologies come out of some small engineering groups that may take up a few niches.

So, step it up please (other countries) for the sake of the world. This could end our need for oil, and
greatly democratize life.
