How efficient would a privatised rescue service be to help poor people in need /emergency? If their business was based on showing a profit .


On the topic of efficiency its ironic that the widely common and wasteful use of oil , coal and natural gas and land use ,adds energy and power to these kinds of storms.

It would be detremental to the bottom line of any oil/coal/natural gas company to seriously make way for efficient use of their products.After all the more sold per quarter and unit the better from their perspective .. aka the bottom line. A Catch 22 , dont you agree?
