Just for thought... If "big oil" and Dick Cheney et all are and have been squashing the advent high MPG vehicles and "Tesla Free Engergy" cars??
Then how come Kodak et all didn't quash the digital imaging technology and industry?
How many tens of thousands of jobs have been lost and altered due to this paradigm shift? Dark forces! I believe there are some.. but they do not wield the power some give them credit for.
