Resource Based Economy

~ A Resourced Based Economy ~ The major difference between a resourced based economy and the monetary system is that a resourced based economy is really concerned with people and their wellbeing, while monetary system has become so distorted that the concerns of the people are really secondary, if they're there at all. The products that are turned out are for how much money you can get. If there is a problem in society, and you can't earn money from solving that problem, then it won't be done. The resourced based economy is really not close to anything that's been tried. And with all our technology today we can create abundance. It could be used to improve everyone's lifestyle. Abundance all over the world if we use our technology wisely and maintain the environement. It's a very different system. And it's very hard to talk about because the public is not that well enough informed as to the state of technology. For more information go to: At present we don't have to burn fossil fuel. We don't have to use anything that would contaminate the environement. There are many sources of energy available. Alternative energy solutions pushed by the establishment such as hydrogen, biomass and even nuclear are highly insufficient, dangerous and exist only to perpetuate the profit structure that industry has created. When we look beyond the propaganda and self serving solutions put forth by the energy companies, we find a seemingly endless stream of clean, abundant and renewable energy for generating power. Solar and wind energy are well known to the public, but the true potential of these mediums remains unexpressed. Solar energy derived from the Sun has such abundance that one hour of light at high noon contains more energy than what the entire world consumes in a year. If we could capture one hundreth of the percent of this energy the world would never have to use oil, gas, or anything else. The question then is not availability, but the technology to harness it. And there are many advanced mediums today which could accomplish just that, if they were not hindered by the need to compete for market share with the established energy power structures. Then there's wind energy. Wind energy has long been denounced as weak, and due to be in location driven, impractical, This is simply not true. The U.S. department of energy admitted in 2007, that if wind was fully harvested in just three of America's fifty states It could power the entire nation. And then there are the rather unknown mediums of tidle and wave power. Tidle power is derived from tidle shifts in the ocean. Installing turbines which capture this movement generates energy. In the United Kingdom forty-two sites are currently noted as available forecasting that 34% of all the UK's energy could come from tidle power alone. Wave power which extracts energy from the surface motions of the ocean is estimated to have a global potential of up to 80.000 TerraWatts / year. This means 50% of the entire planet's energy usage could be produce from this medium alone. Now, it is important to point out that tidle, wave, solar and wind power requires virtually no preliminar energy to harness: unlike coal, oil, gas, biomass, hydrogen and all the others. In combination these four mediums alone if efficiently harnessed through technology could power the world forever. That being said, there happens to be another form of clean renewable energy which trumps them all: Geothermal power. Geothermal energy utilizes what is called heat mining which through a simple process using water is able to generate massive amounts of clean energy. In 2006, an MIT report on geothermal energy found that 13,000 ZJoules of power are curently available in the Earth with the possibility of 2,000 ZJ being easily tapable with improved technology. The total energy consumption of all the countries on the planet is about half of a ZJ a year. This means about 4,000 years of planetary power could be harnessed in this medium alone. And when we understand thet the Earth's heat generation is constantly renewed this energy is really limitless. It could be used forever.
