A circular economy is one that is equitable - and for that reason sustainable. The "Circular Economy" is a United Nations objective and a European Commission target that is endorsed by most other nations around the world.
The problem with that ideal is banking, printing money to the value of several planets in terms of sustainable output, where we have only one. In other words, allowing development far above what planet earth can afford.
Thus money needs to be linked to something tangible that we produce, such as the diminishing supply of food, set against an increasing population. Money lenders abandoned gold as a standard, as greed got the better of them - and kleptocrat politicians allowed it. Avarice and empire building are the allies of global warming.
Now we have crypto currencies based on absolutely thin air, with bitcoin mining the new method of computer based gambling (speculation), that in our view should be illegal - where it uses so much coal generated electricity - as in China, where it accounts for over 5% of their CO2 emissions, making Xi Jinping a climate criminal and the dirtiest of the Dirty Dozen of world leaders.
PENSIONS & SAVINGS
People work hard all their lives to save for retirement. Politicians strive for growth that generates inflation, where their money is based on nothing tangible.
Hence, pensions and savings reduce year on year in real terms. Meaning that our older members of society suffer, as paper money fluctuates on a whim.
Why then would anyone vote for a politician that endorses devaluing their life's work? But they do. In the UK they keep on voting Conservative and Labour, with the occasional Liberal interjection. But they are all as bad as one another in terms of allowing unregulated banking.
You cannot have an industry regulating itself. Any politician who says otherwise is lying to you. That is especially importing for the financial markets.
THE BARE NECESSITIES
We need to provide affordable housing for future generations and aim towards a society where not so many people can exploit the system for personal gain at the expense of suffering on the part of others.
That is not to say that businesses should not make a profit. Profits are needed for forward investment, provided that they are not the fruit of immoral earnings. Here we are talking about financial slavery and the modern poverty trap created by the renting society, in, for example, the United Kingdom, as a case study of what not to do.
We hope to show red flag politicians that clean energy and high quality pre-fabricated housing can help them to achieve their political ambitions in every country around the world. We are advocates of clean transport such as electric vehicles. We want to do what we can to help politicians understand the full import of plastic packaging as it affects our future energy and food security.
MOBILITY & ENERGY SECURITY - Every country in the world is looking for mobility and energy security. The map above is of a grid for Europe, where battery load-leveling is accomplished using low cost flatpack service stations. This will allow the transition to electric transport, while at the same time making the best of solar and wind generated electricity supplies. The biggest energy users need this system to move from their oil economies to zero emissions. (In China from coal burning). India has such ambitions. Australia is gearing up to produce hydrogen for domestic use and export. The proposed system is hydrogen friendly.
These are the important issues that we hope to bring into focus for the benefit of all the citizens of Planet Earth so that they may continue to enjoy life as much as we in the UK would like to enjoy the un-scorched British countryside, that local authorities are burning up - because they have no vision.
There are none so blind as those who will not see!
BOOMTOWN RATS - In Sussex, Wealden District Council are allowing hundreds of luxury houses to be built without any climate offset features. There are no charging points for EVs, no solar water heaters and no solar panels where all councils in the UK are aware that climate mitigation is a requirement. The councillors and officers responsible for encouraging these builds are proud of their achievement, where they should hang their heads in shame. These units represent carbon emissions that in turn mean the deaths of millions of animals all over the world. This picture was taken in March of 2019
HOT AIR? - Grit your teeth all you can, but it is your policies that have caused this mess. Politicians say what they think the electorate want to hear, but in reality, there is usually an alternative agenda. Margaret Thatcher is to blame for the current lack of affordable housing in the UK where she allowed council housing sell off without replacement to generate a quick buck to make her political Party look good for votes. This was typical short sightedness on the part of the Conservatives who are famous for quick fixes. In 2019 the Climate Change Act 2008 was amended to reduce greenhouse gas emission to 100% less than 1990 levels. Well done Prime Minister.
MELT DOWN - Human activities are releasing nearly 10 Gigatons of Carbon (about 36 Billion tons of CO2) into the atmosphere every year, driving atmospheric CO2 concentrations to 400 parts per million (ppm) from their pre-industrial levels of 280 ppm. This increase in CO2 and other greenhouse gases concentrations traps additional energy in the earth's climate system.
