Social change is the issue, NOT a lack of technology or scientific know-how.
In the case of ‘free’ electrical power everywhere on the planet (and beyond); we are facing social obstacles. Like any cultural renaissance in which society frees itself from bondage in favor of a new way of life, the people of Earth must also be open to the possibilities of a better way of life.

And then your mother saying, “You could have gotten nothing so you better be grateful.” That’s exactly whats happening right now… the current choices for energy generation are uninspired and hardly feasible solutions for the long term.
‘Green’ Energy: Everything You Don’t Want But In Lesser Amounts
