Apart from engineering I have worked in economics and banking, and in that capacity see a need for haste in energy development that may necessitate a faster progress than a leisurely technological view may indicate. With the ability and temper of North Americans, this not merely can be achieved but favors our enterprise.
Also we have available energy sources that would make oil, coal, nucleonics superfluous. I brought one such source to this country from France in the forties: The Ocean Thermal Difference System. Free. Unpolluting. In the seventies the National Science Foundation finally caught up, now it is boosted by industry and universities — but — will Ford and Company listen?
