This scheme of combustion in order to get power makes me sick to think of it — it is so wasteful…We should utilize natural forces and thus get all of our power. Sunshine is a form of energy, and the winds and the tides are manifestations of energy. Do we use them? Oh no; we burn up wood and coal, as renters burn up the front fence for fuel. We live like squatters, not as if we owned the property. There must surely come a time when heat and power will be stored in unlimited quantities in every community, all gathered by natural forces. Electricity ought to be as cheap as oxygen, for it cannot be destroyed.

There’s something breathtakingly poetic about this story.
But I think the subtitle translates to “HOLY ****!”
