We could have been long freed from the bondage of this oil crisis had there been genuine sincerity from the government to alleviate the people from this predicament. Unfortunately, greed, selfishness and lack of enough political will has prevented this from happening.
Mr. Daniel Dingel, A Filipino engineer has made it possible for car to run on water â€“ pure tap water. In fact, he has been driving his car around with only water. You will be surprised to know that he has been toying with this technology, and keeps on improving it, since 1968! Five Presidents passed him, from Ferdinand Marcos to Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, yet not one has really made an effort to support this technology and make it available to Juan dela Cruz.
And this is really not surprising because there really isnâ€™t enough political will in our country to sustain such an advocacy. For one, giant oil companies will be definitely lobbying against this because their bottom line will be affected. Unfortunately, having much resources and connections, they are definitely at an advantage in this battle.
Second, as stated by Mr. Dingel himself, he learned that IMF and World Bank are having a hand on the governmentâ€™s lack of support for this project. Again, sincere interest and political will.
We could have been freed for a long time now. Here is the Video:
