( A five-minute read)
IF YOU ARE A TEENAGER at the moment you have every reason to despair at the efforts of your forefathers, who continue to exploit the earth unabated, for short-term profit.
However, there is one thing for sure in your lifetime you ARE GOING TO NEED A NEW VISION FOR THE WHOLE WORLD.
HOW IT WORKS, AND FOR WHOM.
Our world has gone through two industrial revolutions and is now on the threshold of the next, providing that the legacy of the previous two doesn’t destroy what is left.
The coming revolution is going to CREATING THE MOST DRAMATIC STORY EVER TO BE TOLD.
For the last seven decades and both previous industrial revolutions, that created Capitalism, we have used fossil fuel to drive an unsustainable world economy that is now held in the hands of a few. ( The sixty riches people in the world own as much wealth as the poorer half of the world’s population.)
With the explosion of Artificial Intelligence WITH US AS THE MAIN TARGET, we are now faced with unrestricted evolution that will create THE 6TH EXTENSION
A WORLD STRIPPED OF ITS ESSENCE, GLITTERING WITH AN ARID AND TROUBLED BEAUTY.
To change any of this will not be a cake walk.
How will this journey end is now the big question?
As we see climate change taking a grip we got to learn to share, as everyone is going to be involved whether they like it or not.
So are we going to be able to deal with internet platforms whose power is growing daily through algorithms? Not likely.
There is no need here for me to paint a picture, we all have smartphones which contain a little of the earthly riches.
We all know that social media is an extremely powerful tool, whether used for positive or negative reasons. It can help ignite social change, expand meaningful conversations and provide increased support for causes, among other things. A single Twitter hashtag can create massive social awareness but not the necessary action.
So the purpose of this post is to see if there is anyone out there among the under thirty years old ( which is half of the world population) have any suggestions as to use this power in a positive way to create the distribution of Green Energy.
It is energy that is going to DRIVE ANY EXTENSION or EVOLUTION.
HERE IS MY SOLUTION.
EVERY HAMLET, VILLAGE GENERATES ITS OWN POWER.
THIS CAN BE ACHIEVED WITH LITTLE OR NO COST.
THE LARGE ENERGY COMPANIES ENTER INTO GREEN ENERGY COMMUNITY CONTRACTS WITH COMMUNITIES OF OVER 500 HOMES.
THEY LEASE THE LAND FROM THE LANDOWNER.
SUBSIDIZING THE CAPITAL COST OF SETTING UP SOLAR OR WIND GENERATING POWER – ATTACHED TO THE GRID.
THE COMMUNITY RECEIVES FREE POWER AND A % OF THE REVENUE FROM THE SALE OF EXCESS ENERGY FOR MAINTENANCE COST.
THE ENERGY COMPANY RECOUPS ITS CAPITAL COST PLUS AN AGREED INTEREST PAYMENT OVER A TERM OF YEARS RELATED TO THE EXCESS POWER GENERATED
NOT ONLY WOULD THIS BE GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT REDUCING CARBON EMISSION AND REPLACING NUCLEAR ENERGY WHICH IS BOTH DANGEROUS AND EXPENSIVE IT WOULD (FROM A RESOURCE THAT IS FREE) REDUCE THE RELIANCE ON FOSSIL FUEL THAT IS DESTROYING THE WORLD SUSTAINABILITY.
HOW CAN THIS BE ARCHIVED?
THIS CAN BE ACHIEVED BY USING THE HASHTAG POWER TO LOBBY BOTH THE GOVERNMENT AND THE ENERGY COMPANIES.
So is there any young entrepreneurs out there that can put the package together?

All suggestions appreciated. All like clicks chucked in the bin
