LETTERS: Forcing technology for money

This approved mega project, costing nine billion dollars to B.C. residents will negatively impact on the environment.

Big government has done it again. This approved mega project, costing nine billion dollars to B.C. residents will negatively impact on the environment as it takes another big chunk of good, arable land out of production.

The argument that the dam will provide us with a renewable resource smells of incompetence and lacks the will to explore alternate power sources. I had a friend here in Penticton, who 10 years ago had developed a machine that converted magnetic power into electric power – free and unlimited. He tried to patent the invention and get it manufactured, but all he received is empty promises and an attempt by the big players in the energy world to trick him into surrendering his invention, so that they could mothball it and prevent the public from benefiting from it. My friend was not alone in this field and he had contact with others who were developing similar technology, some of which had “accidents” when they got too close to be a threat to the big players.

We know about Nicolas Tesla and how he ended up, or Victor Schauberger. Why were the electric cars that GM developed years ago only leased and when their success was established, were pulled from the market and crushed. One tends to believe that the power elite of this world deliberately forces us to use technologies that are a detriment to the well-being of our planet, because it serves their greed for money that they extort from the rest of us and make us into dependent slaves.
