Renewable Energy = Homeland Security
Our decentralized power grid will deny terrorists an opportunity to take out our power. Making oil relatively worthless will take away the vast majority of terrorist funding. Eliminating any perceived need to protect our oil interests in hostile lands will keep our troops safe and allow us to redirect the money spent on war to our needs at home. The Solar Roadways™ provides national security on several levels:
Our Roadway Infrastructure: Trucks with hazardous materials can be tracked and monitored. Suspected terrorist's vehicles can be tracked. Public buses and school buses can be tracked. All in real time. These vehicles can be fitted with controls to shut down their engines and/or apply their brakes in the event that they are commandeered with malintent.
Our Power Grid: The power grid cannot be disrupted - not by terrorists, not by power companies, not by nature, not by anyone. No more blackouts, no more brownouts, no more disruptions - ever.
Global Warming: If we don't stop pouring carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, then global temperatures will continue to increase, Greenland and the polar ice caps will continue to melt, and hundreds of millions of people will be displaced. That presents a national security problem for every country in the world.
Dependency on Foreign Oil: The fact that the world is running out of oil doesn't mean that the industrialized nations will simply learn to live without it. Those who are capable will fight for the last drop of oil, anyplace, anywhere. We don't believe that any of us are willing to mothball our military machines or revert back to non-mechanized artillery units. WWIII could easily ensue over the right to extract and use the last reserves of oil.
Nuclear Threat: Since we'll be producing three times more electricity than we can use (see Numbers), we'll have no further need for nuclear power plants of any kind. No more worrying about another Chernobyl or Three Mile Island. No more stockpiles of radioactive waste. We can provide Solar Road Panels™ anywhere in the world, helping all countries acheive the dream of security.
To summarize, the Solar Roadways™ provides us (and other nations) national security that we have never been able to achieve. It can help curb terrorism. It can help prevent future wars. It can keep our children safer. It will cut down on health and respiratory problems. The Solar Roadway™ will help us to sleep better at night!
"I think the environment should be put in the category of our national security. Defense of our resources is just as important as defense abroad. Otherwise, what is there to defend?" ~ Robert RedfordPlease join our fan site on Facebook. It's the best way to keep up with our current news.
