Aight, I watched it.

Snagged from Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal_depolymerization)

Thermal Depolymerization (TDP) is a process using hydrous pyrolysis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrous_pyrolysis) for the reduction of complex organic materials (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organic_material) (usually waste (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waste) products of various sorts, often known as biomass (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biomass) and plastic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plastic)) into light crude oil (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crude_oil). It mimics the natural geological (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geology) processes thought to be involved in the production of fossil fuels (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fossil_fuel).

Sounds great, but the unfortunate fact is there is no capitalist gains to be achieved from such a thing.

Dude, I mean seriously let's think about it!

We have, and have had, the technology to maintain our existence as a society/culture/species for damn near half a century. I'm talking with minimal impact on our environment, via hydro power with the tides and running waterways, solar, recycling, conservation, nuclear energy, and shet man you name it.

It mean shet.

These awesome technologies mean diddly squat my son my boy!

We are a culture, way of life, that it's been said to be "a beacon of light" for the rest of the of the world!

We represent mass consumption, greed, self indulgence, and selfishness as a society on a level that has never been seen before on this earth since recorded history.

Things will not change until every natural resource on this earth has been consumed and every dollar has been made.

Welcome to capitalism my friends..

God Bless us!

GeoD, you know not to get me started!

I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, the ring of fire
The ring of fire"
