I have spoken with Bill Taylor
before. If Bill Taylor
's lane worked then why weren't they ever sold?
Same reason the eletric car didn't sell here. It would have taken the money out off too many people's pockets. The fuel producing companies would have lost out on trillions of dollars in oil and fuel had the electric car hit big, so they made sure it didn't.
However, Taylor's lane didn't do everything they had hoped it would do. Then again, neither did synthetic lanes. They've found out that they do not hold up nearly as well as they had originally hoped or intended. But, it kept lane manufacturers in buisness, and since there was still a need for oil to be applied to the synthetics, everyone was happy. An oil-less lane would have put the oil companies basically out of buisness had it taken off.
Eventually everything comes down to money. It's not pretty, but it's how the world looks.
