"When cost is trivial -- almost anything can be accomplished. And in the long run -- cost is almost always trivial"

If all of these statements are true -- any money problem and most physical construction problems can be solved -- such as the apparent difficulty of sequestering carbon dioxide and carbon. Why don't we take advantage of our sovereign right to create money?

1) The earth has a huge quantity of Aluminum that can be easily mined and manipulated
2) Aluminum Oxide is easily made -- it is very hard.
3) The earth has a huge quantity of Silicon that can be easily collected and manipulated.
4) Silicon can easily be combined with Oxygen to make glass. Glass is a good construction material.
5) Glass can easily be drawn into fibers -- and woven into fabric.
6) Carbon can easily be drawn into fibers and woven into fabric.
7) When used with epoxy liquids -- almost and solid product can be manufactured -- boats and airplanes -- for instance. The airplane (Voyager) that was flown around the world with no stops was completely made of carbon and glass fiber plus foam plastic and liquid plastic.
8) Together -- Aluminum and Silicon can be used to build almost any solid item.
9) Carbon Dioxide can be separated into Carbon and Oxygen -- neither of them are, in general, dangerous
10) Carbon can be made into Diamond using only pressure and heat.
11) Pressure and heat are endlessly available.
12) Light waves can be made into laser light which can create heat energy that can cut, shape and weld virtually any material.
13) Carbon nano-tubes can be used as an extremely strong building material.
14) Diamond dust and epoxy liquids can be used to build almost any product.
15) Cost is of absolutely no concern in manufacturing -- because we can create any amount of money as long as that money is used to create wealth that exceeds the value of the money. Essentially an infinite amount of money can create an infinite amount of wealth. Beside that, Murray Rothbard the Austrian Economic School guru argues that any amount of money can be matched with any amount of wealth because (paraphrasing) "money can be infinitely divided into smaller units".

On Dec. 23, 1986, the experimental airplane Voyager, piloted by Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager, completed the first non-stop, around-the-world flight without refueling as it landed safely at Edwards Air Force Base in California. It was made out of plastic foam and fiberglass.

I served coffee to Rutan, Yeager and the welcoming crowd that day -- Marty Carbone <<>;>
