Nobody Owns the Sun

Nobody Owns the Sun

Our nation has devolved into an oligarchy and part of that is an Oiligarchy; a few great companies who own the means of oil, gas and coal production and use their wealth and leverage to run the country. They own the oil deposits and coal, they own the gas deposits and the pipelines and leases on our offshore shelves and on public lands.

They own leases in foreign lands, exploiting the natives, bribing and corrupting officials, creating oil princes and sheiks.

But nobody owns the sun. Nobody owns the earth orbits. Anybody who can get there and collect solar power can beam it to their own targets. Foreign countries can do this. Investors can. Whoever does it will own cheap renewable power worth far more than fossil fuel. Capitalism says that, in the long run, they will drive fossil fuel from the market. And aren’t we in this for the long run.
