Is solving the world energy problems at $10 per Mwh a moral issue?

If you know you will destroy governments reliant on fossil fuels for funding, cause the failure of nations, destroy most pension systems due to their reliance on carbon investments, cause deflationary pressure on every nation worldwide, and cause people to lose their life savings.

Would you release the technology to do $10-$20 per Mwh energy?
Is it morally right with the damage it will do?

>>>> Reply to all. This issue is closed. The next issue is a question as to if this is actually a device that can do sub $20 per Mwh energy.

    Nov 23 2012: I know the LCoE or LEC chart very well.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cost_of_electricity_by_source

    The cost of energy is, the energy produced divided by the total cost to produce the energy over a given period of time. That includes the fuel, the factory costs, and the taxes and labor.

    So my question to you is. Does a device that costs $2,500 installed that produces 3.5 kwh 24 hours x 7 days a week for 25 years equate to under $20 per Mwh?
