A secretive research team presented a revolutionary solution to mankind's most burning problem in a Renewable Energy Conference in 2023.
But revolutionary inventions are hardly ever welcome. They are a threat to established industries, business models and power structures.
The renewable energy research team soon found that their invention was too revolutionary. It could replace the world's most traded commodities - oil, gas and coal - and render them as stranded assets, resources that lost their value. The vested interests were too great that the mighty and powerful would allow that kind of disaster to happen.
The scientists became pawns in a geopolitical power game, in which ruthless dictators and greedy fossil energy empires joined forces to eliminate such a threatening prospect by any means.
