Has anyone else found that even though comedians obviously poke fun at a lot of problems in the world, their opinions and concerns are actually spot on and completely warranted?
It’s funny because one of my favorite comedians out there today brought up an interesting point on a podcast that really got me thinking. If you have ever heard of him, Bill Burr will definitely be the first one to say that he isn’t the most informed guy out there but it is really hard to argue with a lot of the things he talks about.
The point he was trying to make was that over the 100 years or so that cars have been around, the miles per gallon that they get today has been improved so little while technology in every other regard has been improved so exponentially, that it is impossible to believe that big business isn’t preventing an improved and more environmentally friendly engine.
Less MPG=Less $$$
This is exactly the point I was talking about yesterday in regards to big businesses purposely trying to get in the way of alternative energy resources. Let’s face it, the oil industry is a multi BILLION dollar business and if engines all around the world worked so that they got 100 miles per gallon as opposed to 20-30, this would cost these all powerful corporations to lose millions of dollars.
We all know what the mentality is of these billionaires and what they would do to maintain their profits coming in.
Unfortunately, our Earth is the price we have to pay to keep the rich even richer.
