In North America, each year the organisms in charge of public safety publish alarming statistics concerning dwelling electrical fires. In France, there are some 240,000 dwelling fires per annum (governmental statistics of April 2012), with 800 deaths and 10,000 injured. A third of these are electrical fires, hence one every six minutes just in France.
In North America and in France, the elimination of the quasi-totality of electrical fires is possible since 2001. Well then?
It seems improbable that a modest professional could obtain a solid innovation patent concerning an innovation having such repercussions and researched for decades by R&D engineers around the world. And even less imaginable that this advance of the discovery of what appears to be an overall agreement among certain industrials; the fact that the main cause of electrical fires remains hidden and unprotected despite all the talk about security; even as required security products will not work as one would expect.
Some may think that this story is insane; some episodes are often literally incredible. Others turn away saying they do not have the expertise to judge. The result is the same: a suspension of judgment.
As in the Discourse on the Method by Descartes, “prejudice and precipitation prevent us from good judgment”. The discovery must be seen in the background even if it has been validated. Here, it suffices to list the facts that are verifiable. It is through them that the first extraordinary case is anchored in reality and takes its scenery. A scenery that reveals the disturbing aspects of globalization, shameful practices of certain multinational companies having, as it seems, support at the highest levels.
A matter of public safety, if not the State, not reported?
