UN75 YEARS OF INACTION - Many wars have been waged over mineral rights and control of oil flow, used to power our internal combustion engine vehicles. Imagine a world where free energy form nature powers our vehicles, and every country has their own electricity supply, independent of fossil fuel imports. Energy security is a big step towards world peace. By way of example, SmartNet service stations might supply hydrogen for heavy goods vehicles, and electricity to rapid charge conventional battery vehicles. They also act as grid load-levelers for changeable wind and solar renewables. This kind of technology could free us from carcinogens in cities and reduces global warming. If we are to supply trucks and cars with energy, we need around 600,000 smart service stations globally before 2050, meaning mass produced flatpacks are necessary to reach such goal economically. At 2019 end, 470 hydrogen stations were operating worldwide, 1/1200th of what is required.

 

 

 

If the United Nations were to pool resources, to accelerate climate cooling technology via Green Patents (by way of example), we may stand a chance of meeting the 1.5 degree temperature rise threshold, and even begin to get back to some kind of sustainable level. But that is looking highly unlikely due to the inability of larger organizations to adapt, or change.

GLOBAL WARMING IMPLICATIONS

 

Climate change threatens to destabilize the economics of planet earth, such that all the theoretical protections afforded by Copyright, Patents, and Trademarks will come to naught. Food security and energy for our homes and transport systems is far more important, where we have already annihilated thousands of species, created deserts of arable land and are in the process of melting our ice caps.

 

Where plastic in our oceans is making toxin laden fish inedible, and with agriculture under pressure to feed a growing population, it is likely that there will be food shortages, leading to global conflict and potentially cannibalism as a last resort, where desertification is eating up land for crops and grazing animals - and is at the moment unstoppable. Humans represent one of the most prolific protein sources on the planet, if looked at as livestock. Culling should enable the earth to recover eventually and reach a natural equilibrium, with lessons learned for our great grandchildren's survivors. But should we let it even approach that stage?
