  6. 6. A Private Enterprise Strategy: Humanitarian Aid to Emerging Economy Proposal Introduction Millennial Foundation, Inc. is a United States tax-exempt organization that currently provides research on humanitarian aid trends and strategies. The initial project of Millennial Foundation is the humanitarian aid outreach program defined in this proposal. This proposal presents data into the current challenges facing the global humanitarian aid community with cooperative and collaborative solutions on the issues of response time, security, and sustainability. Millennial Foundation proposes a humanitarian aid dedicated fleet of ships, submersibles, aircrafts, utility vehicles, with construction and farming equipment to facilitate a coordinated response, a private military force for humanitarian aid security measures, and a cooperative network of partners for the creation of emerging economies. Millennial Foundation and its partners believe that integrating a social and political mindset of abundance over scarcity must be the foundational premise to building value for all stakeholders. Based on this approach Millennial Foundation offers solutions for project implementation with related costs and revenues. 1 Current Situation The current situation among under-developed nations is deteriorating because of the lack of aid that is reaching human needs internationally when it is politically expedient causing diplomatic unrest. “Humanitarian aid is prone to political and military convenience of both donor and recipient countries and to the exigencies of the “donor industry”, and often lacks a coordinated plan. NGOs often compete with each other for donations, with donors generally more sympathetic to emergencies than longer-term aid and development leading to wide divergence in levels of funding” (Oloruntoba & Gray, 2006). According to the UN Financial Tracking Service, (2009), private contributions (individuals and organizations) made up 4.2% of all contributions for $196,751,627 (not including carry-over donors which made up 29.2% for $1,365,720,061 of contributions). Millennial Foundation believes that in order to flip the ratios provided in the UN Financial Tracking Service towards corporate sponsorship, sponsoring partnerships must align for the creation of national emerging economies that are based on productivity instead of consumption (See Addendum B - Millennial Monetary System). 1.1 Diplomatic Unrest “A number of speakers from African nations (September 28) addressed the assembly, stressing that oft-promised strong international support for African development had yet to materialize. Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Minister Aichatou Mindaoudou of Niger urged developed nations to cancel poor countries' foreign debt, open markets, pay fair prices for raw materials and do away with agricultural subsidies in the interests of increasing African opportunity. Ethiopian Minister for Foreign Affairs Seyoum Mesfin said that African political will to improve conditions on that continent was at an all-time high. “Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo, who was also chairman of the African Union (AU), (September 23) had told the assembly that the AU would send between 3,000 and 5,000 troops and monitors to help establish and keep the peace in the Darfur region of Sudan, where 50,000 people had died and 1.4 million people had been displaced over recent months in an ongoing violent Page 6 of 120
  7. 7. A Private Enterprise Strategy: Humanitarian Aid to Emerging Economy Proposal conflict that the U.S. had deemed genocide. He noted that the AU would require millions of dollars to carry out the mission” (World News Digest, 2004). In order to expand the humanitarian aid contribution for the current 4.2% to an anticipated 75% within 10 years, humanitarian aid organizations must facilitate the rising need of jointly creating emerging markets with the international business and diplomatic communities for the purpose of expanding world trade and economic growth cooperatively. 1.2 Enterprise Expansion Trends Another trend within mid-market companies in 10 major United States cities offers the following samplings of key findings from the KPMG Global Enterprise Institute: 2007 Mid-Market Survey on Global Expansion Survey Report: • 4 in 10 said global expansion is integral to their growth strategy, while one third stated that leadership is focused on global expansion • The majority of those surveyed plan to increase their global presence over the next five years • Half of respondents said that global expansion does not impact their U.S. employee base • Economic factors in the United States and abroad have the greatest influence on their global expansion decisions • Regulations, local laws, developing new customers, language, and local culture present key- but not insurmountable-challenges to their efforts Source: (KPMG, 2007). The purpose of global expansion for the international business community is based upon the ability to access qualified competitive markets who will buy products and services that solve problems based on the amount of pain the market feels against supply and demand. 1.3 Emerging Economy Defined There are as many definitions to what an emerging economy is as there are economists. For purposes of this proposal, an emerging economy is defined as a national economy that creates more value than it consumes for its stakeholders. Areas of consideration in establishing emerging economies looks at the social climate, political/legal environment, financial and banking infrastructure, business development opportunities, consumer savings, consumption patterns, and the impact on driving national stability and security within sociopolitical systems. Social Climate: The current social environment is in search of innovative solutions to political issues surrounding global economic challenges among developed nations. Developed nations have long searched for social welfare programs that bring value to all constituents, while facilitating a strong and vibrant free-enterprise system. Unfortunately, governments who have taken the responsibility of controlling the welfare systems for their constituency have done so because either the free-enterprise solutions are insufficient or have a preference of controlling the Page 7 of 120
  8. 8. A Private Enterprise Strategy: Humanitarian Aid to Emerging Economy Proposal processes themselves. Governments continue to look for free-enterprise solutions to education, healthcare, the economy, and other such issues facing indebted and wealthy nations alike. “Seven hundred million people live in the 42 so-called Highly Indebted Poor Countries (HIPCs), where a combination of extreme poverty and financial insolvency marks them for a special kind of despair and economic isolation. They escape our notice almost entirely, unless war or an exotic disease breaks out, or yet another programme with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is signed. We urgently need new creativity and a new partnership between rich and poor if these 700m people (projected to rise to 1.5 billion by 2030), as well as the extremely poor in other parts of the world (especially South Asia), are to enjoy a chance for human betterment” (Sachs, 1999). Solution Benchmark: Millennial Foundation introduces social entrepreneurship to facilitating education, healthcare, food, and shelter/utilities welfare systems (Please see addendum C, The Millennial Foundation Welfare System). The approach of utilizing family fundraising mechanisms in joint partnership with tax-exempt organizations such as religions, professional organizations, and other charitable membership-type organizations in providing community value while promoting corporate sponsorship unites people with shared needs to provide value to businesses and themselves. Each fundraising activity will allow up to 80% of the revenues to go directly to the insurance premiums or payments of those who collectively serve together for the needs of each other. As revenues from each family based fundraising event comes into the Millennial Foundation account, Millennial Foundation keeps 20% in order to pay for the administration of each fundraising event. The remaining revenues going to the different health/life insurance plans, mortgage companies, and retail store credits the participating families choose in order to maintain competition within free-enterprise system. While a number of these businesses may choose to financially sponsor some of the family fundraising activities that attract business sponsorship, the value for the family recipient is in having their needs provided for while the value to the business is a paying customer that becomes loyal to the sponsoring business. The social climate Millennial Foundation espouses is one of cooperation and collaboration in serving the needs of each other through families building value for each other and for businesses searching for ways to capture target audiences by bringing solutions to the pain the family experiences. Free-enterprise will drive value through the creation of a medium that focuses competition strategies that drives value to the consumer. Note: The above scenario is currently illegal within the United States and other nations. However, the concept is worth experimentation within the boundaries of the Millennial Citadel Sea City. Based on international law, an island that is in international waters (13 miles from any other land mass) which has no claim from any government is a government unto itself. Since the Sea City is a large man-made floating land-mass without any sovereign claims of ownership to it by any other Picture 1. Reed, Walter R. (2009) Millennial Citadel Sea City™ nation, Millennial Foundation will have the right to establish the sea cities constitutional form of government, its laws, and all of the responsibilities associated with being an interim head of state Page 8 of 120
  9. 9. A Private Enterprise Strategy: Humanitarian Aid to Emerging Economy Proposal until one can be chosen by the people. While Millennial Foundation will maintain influence in the governing process as the largest land owner, we are only interested in using the Sea City as a laboratory to experiment with government and political processes while providing relief to the millions of refugees that are homeless and unsafe. Political and Legal Environment: The political and legal environment varies in form, structure, capacity, and economic value in preserving the rights of constituents. According to Transparency International, “Corruption aggravates poverty. Surveys of extreme poverty in developing countries point to corruption as having a significant and detrimental impact on their lives. For a poor household, the bribe randomly extorted by a police officer may mean that families cannot afford to pay school fees for their children or to buy goods to maintain their small business and source of income. Corruption not only reduces the net income of the poor but also wrecks programmes related to their basic needs, from sanitation to education to healthcare. Its results, the misallocation of resources to the detriment of poverty reduction programmes. “The attainment of the (United Nations) Millennium Development Goals is put at risk unless corruption is tackled as an integral part of poverty reduction strategies. Many political leaders of the developing world view corruption as a very serious impediment to the overall development of their countries. Corruption threats and risks are increasingly taken into account in the design of national development programmes. The growing global consensus on the importance of corruption as an impediment to development is reflected in the ratification of the UN Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC)” (Transparency International, 2009). Solution Benchmark: A collaborative cooperative organization that brings the international diplomatic community together with the international corporate community to create an environment where humanitarian aid can flourish into emerging economies provides the catylist for generally accepted compatibility requirements with economic development and pro-business initiatives such as micro-loans, equity market solutions, and the integration of value driven political measures for reform. Loans from the World Bank or the International Monetary Fund should be conditional upon the acceptance of measures designed to transform HIPCs (heavily indebted poor countries) into competitive governments who can pay their debts through their emergence as a prosperous economy as defined in this proposal. Financial/Banking Infrastructure: Initial financial and banking infrastructure will require a ‘barter and trade’ system in order to re-establish trade internally. However, an emerging monetary system that is traded with other major world currencies with a basis of value on the resources it holds for stability and a focus on productivity over consumption becomes absolutely required in order to change the tide of consumer, business, and government debt. Millennial Foundation encourages multiple free-enterprise Internet monetary systems as suggested in the Cato Institute’s Publication: The Future of Money in the Information Age with a similar structure that Millennial Foundation proposes (see Addendum C: The Millennial Foundation Monetary System). Solution Benchmark: According to Bernard Lietaer of the Center for Sustainable Currency at University of California-Berkeley and former Belgium Central Banker, the following offers trends within barter and trade that may facilitate currency trade solutions in the development of currencies for under-developed nations or nations in need of economic solutions: Page 9 of 120
  10. 10. A Private Enterprise Strategy: Humanitarian Aid to Emerging Economy Proposal A. “Your money's value is determined by a global casino of unprecedented proportions: $2 trillion are traded per day in foreign exchange markets, 100 times more than the trading volume of all the stock markets of the world combined. Only 2% of these foreign exchange transactions relate to the "real" economy reflecting movements of real goods and services in the world, and 98% are purely speculative. This global casino is triggering the foreign exchange crises which shook Mexico in 1994-5, Asia in 1997 and Russia in 1998. These emergencies are the dislocation symptoms of the old Industrial Age money system. Unless some precautions are taken soon, there is at least a 50-50 chance that the next five to ten years will see a global money meltdown, the only plausible way for a global depression. B. “The Information Age has already spawned new kinds of currencies: frequent flyer miles are evolving toward a "corporate scrip" (a private currency issued by a corporation) for the traveling elite; a giant corporation you never heard of is issuing its own "Net-market Cash" for Internet commerce; even Alan Greenspan, Chairman of the Federal Reserve, foresees "new private currency markets in the 21st century." C. “Exorbitant compensations are paid to the very few at the top: it started with movie stars and sports heroes, and has now spread to top lawyers, traders, doctors, and business leaders. In the 1960’s CEO’s salaries were only thirty times greater than those of the average worker, compared with two hundred times today. Is this the dawn of a society where "Winner-takes-all" or a short- term last gasp of the transition out of the Industrial Age? D. “1,900 local communities in the world, including over a hundred in the US, are now issuing their own currency, independently from the national money system. Some communities, like in Ithaca, New York, issue paper currency; others in Canada, Australia, the UK or France issue complementary electronic money. E. “The value of barter transactions — exchanges which do not use any money as medium of exchange - totaled almost $6.5 billion in the US and Canada during 1994, and is increasing three times faster than normal exchanges. The magazine "Barter News" covers the industry’s development and now has 30,000 subscribers. It estimates the total barter worldwide was at $650 billion in 1997 and growing at an annual rate of 15%” (Lietaer, 2001). Business Development Opportunities: The business development opportunities found in nations-in-need are difficult at best because of the lack of education and access to capital from developed nations and capital markets. “Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf (September 22) told assembly delegates that the U.S. and its allies were "winning the battle against terrorists" but were losing the larger war against terrorism because they were failing to address deep-rooted antagonism against the U.S. and the West. That antagonism threatened to throw down an "iron curtain" between the West and the Islamic world unless industrialized nations invested financially and politically in opportunities for Muslims in underdeveloped countries, he said. “Representatives from several small island and archipelago nations (September 24) drew attention to their particular plights. Those included the threat to the very existence of such countries posed by natural disasters, and aggravated by climate change; economies often overly dependent on tourism from abroad; and World Trade Organization standards that made their trade balances especially vulnerable to foreign imports. “The speeches came just as the Caribbean region was experiencing a devastating series of hurricanes [See 2004 Death Toll in Haiti Flooding From Tropical Storm Jeanne Reaches 1,500; Jeanne Hits U.S. as Hurricane; Other Developments]. Page 10 of 120
  11. 11. A Private Enterprise Strategy: Humanitarian Aid to Emerging Economy Proposal “Cuban Foreign Affairs Minister Felipe Perez Roque challenged the idea that the U.N. was an effective instrument to promote equality among nations. He argued that small, relatively powerless states would have to seize development opportunism for themselves from “those who deny us justice today, because they underpin their wealth and arrogance on the disdain for our grief” (World News Digest, 2004). Solution Benchmark: Millennial Foundation’s initial plan is to focus on the financial services, agricultural, mining, business services and manufacturing industries in order to build supply-chain infrastructures necessary to promote international corporate investments. There are extensive programs such as micro loans that offer limited access to capital through tax-exempt and banking organizations. The micro loans are a major part of bringing communities together to participate in the free-enterprise structure and potential community prosperity. Additional capital for entrepreneurism, industry and market diversification, and trade cooperation must be at the heart and soul of the creation of emerging markets. Equity markets at a small scale also needs to establish itself within the context of the creation of emerging markets in order to offer a cooperative and collaborative offering to the global community of investors. Consumer Savings and Consumption Patterns: Currently, there is very little data on savings or consumption patterns that are tracked among economically disadvantaged nations in terms of financial statements of businesses operating. Solution Benchmark: Systems and measures for tracking financial statements, consumer pricing indexes, unemployment rates, gross domestic product (GDP), tax rates, salary averages, savings rates, debt rates, LIBOR rates, domestic and foreign investment rates, and averaged wealth growth must be used as key indicators of measuring economic stability with growth opportunities. Impact on Driving National Stability and Security: There are very few charitable organizations or for profit corporations who are making an impact on national stability and security among troubled nations throughout the world. Solution Benchmark: There must be a cooperative effort between the G-20 nations and the international corporate community in sponsoring the emergence of the prospective consumption market projected at 1.5 billion consumers for participation in global trade that will effectively influence the economic growth and sustainability of the current developed nations. 1.4 Government Outsourcing Trends Today, there are many outsourced services that government has controlled in the past such as: monetary and tax collection, private military companies, research and development, strategic planning, government real estate development, power companies, space and ocean exploration, accounting services, legal services, and the list continues. “Nearly 90 percent of government executives outsource activities that are “important or absolutely critical” to their mission of citizen service delivery, finds a recent study by Accenture. Only two percent of those surveyed said that outsourcing is “relatively unimportant.” Page 11 of 120
  12. 12. A Private Enterprise Strategy: Humanitarian Aid to Emerging Economy Proposal “The study, which entailed surveying and/or interviewing more than 150 executives in 23 governments in Asia, Europe, North America, and South America, found that governments outsource mainly to improve the speed or quality of the service they provide to citizens and others. Among the activities and services most often outsourced are staff training and education programs, finance and accounting functions, human resources and supply chain operations, and information technology applications and infrastructure. “According to the study, as governments become more experienced with outsourcing, they seek new ways to derive greater value from these arrangements and are therefore more inclined to outsource processes such as procurement, finance and accounting, human resources, which were previously considered too critical to outsource. By outsourcing certain critical services and functions, governments can improve the quality of service they provide to citizens, while increasing operational efficiency and lower costs” (Government Procurement, 2003). The trends in government outsourcing would suggest the potential prospect of nearly all government services becoming privatized except for the executive functions of government in determining laws and policies. Millennial Foundation is positioning itself to provide many of the outsourced services to the world beginning with the humanitarian aid to emerging economy effort. 2 Solution Millennial Foundation requires a fleet of floating sea city bases, maritime ships, aircrafts, support vehicles, heavy construction equipment, heavy farming equipment, crews, and a private security force in order to facilitate a collaborative and cooperative approach with domestic and international humanitarian aid organizations, educational institutions, research institutions, and corporate partners in providing relief to families in need and (re)building national infrastructure systems required to promote social, political, and economic growth for sustainability as emerging economies. Our required fleet assets will be pre-positioned in ocean and river regions of the world for the fulfillment of our objectives and meeting global needs. Our fleet will be acquired through a tax-exempt bond guaranteed by G-20 governments with payback returned through job development, expanding economies under management, and corporate sponsorships. 2.1 Objectives 1. Increase Disaster Response Time – Millennial Foundation’s first objective is to provide a major response within 48 hours anywhere on earth through an extensive dedicated private fleet that has the capacity to respond quickly and effectively with speeds upwards of 150 knots while not having the appearance of a major military operation. 2. Improve Humanitarian Security – Millennial Foundation’s second objective is to utilize its unified dedicated fleet along with private military contractors from around the world to secure all areas necessary to facilitate a high degree of safety within theatres of operation. Millennial Foundation will sign agreements with former military and special forces personnel from around the world who are trained in intelligence, border security, fleet management, strategy, risk management, operations planning, and implementation. 3. Increase Disaster Relief Sustainability – Millennial Foundation’s third objective is to build new emerging economies that will sustain political, social, and economic growth for troubled regions of the world. Millennial Foundation recognizes that such an effort will require joint Page 12 of 120
  13. 13. A Private Enterprise Strategy: Humanitarian Aid to Emerging Economy Proposal cooperation, collaboration, and implementation with multi-governmental departments and agencies, academic and research institutions; humanitarian relief, human rights, environmental, emergency response, and healthcare organizations throughout the world for the fulfillment of common purposes in providing sustained relief to recipient people and nations. The Millennial Foundation fleet proposes specific dedicated assets for the cooperation, collaboration, and implementation for each partnership in the development of emerging economies. 2.2 Approach The approach of Millennial Foundation is to create a streamlined approach that will facilitate a collective and collaborative effort among international humanitarian aid organizations in providing disaster relief to nations and people who are in need. While less than 5% of support comes from private corporations and individuals currently, the following approach should increase support from this segment to more than 75% over the next ten years due to the extended purpose of humanitarian aid in building emerging economies throughout the world. We cannot expect to serve the people of a region without lifting their government to greater levels of prosperity. To not lift the government, we are only placing a temporary bandage on the problem that will worsen with time. Millennial Foundation finds it appropriate to establish the first fleet dedicated entirely to humanitarian aid and building emerging economies with sea city bases that support the regional command structure, maritime fleet, submersible fleet, aircraft fleet, support vehicles, heavy construction equipment, and heavy farming equipment as a full compliment to humanitarian aid and emerging economy systems and processes with quick oceanic and river network logistical response and support. A description of the capabilities and missions of each fleet asset as determined by need and budgeted for is explained within the financial section of this proposal. Disclosure: The following assets are proposed fleet requirements and do not represent a contractual agreement between Millennial Foundation and the manufacturer of the assets represented. Many of the following companies may not have been contacted in relation to this proposal. The missions of each asset represents how each asset would work together in building value for global humanitarian aid and building emerging economies into the future. THE MILLENNIAL CITADEL FLEET The Millennial Citadel Fleet is a fully dedicated fleet designed to provide medical response, diplomatic response, cultural response, aircraft carrier logistical support, maintenance support, agricultural support, energy support, research support, passenger transport, submersible support and security, aircraft logistics support, utility vehicle support, heavy construction vehicle logistics, and heavy farming vehicle logistical requirements. Each fleet asset has a specific mission designed to maximize effectiveness and efficiency in the coordination of humanitarian aid and emerging economy operations even with simultaneous operations in different regions of Page 13 of 120
  14. 14. A Private Enterprise Strategy: Humanitarian Aid to Emerging Economy Proposal command areas. The fleet assets are considered shared situational resources under the management of Millennial Foundation with all partners and sponsors. The maritime fleet has unique characteristics in its design. Each ship, submarine, aircraft, and vehicle will be painted white with the Millennial Foundation logo displayed in predominant locations on each fleet asset. One of the greatest advantages of the Millennial Fleet, particularly in its maritime fleet is in capacity of eliminating some 83% of drag in order to maximize speed efficiency. Ships and boats are designed specific to the vessel mission. Generally the higher the extremes of vessel speed, the higher the costs; much like designing a Porsche or jet aircraft. Huge ship platforms increase the difficulty of extreme speeds just due to the size of wind management alone, as the frontal cross section increases. A ship traveling at 80 Knots into a 40 Knot wind, becomes an accumulative 120 Knot (hurricane level speeds) wind resistance to deal with. Aircraft routinely travel faster, but they have a much smaller frontal cross section. The engineering phase of each vessel will ultimately decide what prime power system is utilized to match the demands of the mission specification. Stability in elevated seas is a major factor in ship design, where as these HARTHTM transoceanic platforms are ultra-stable in and through elevated sea-states that affords significantly more safety, comfort, speed, and fuel economies. MARITIME FLEET The maritime fleet provides an ocean and river fleet that facilitates increased response times to natural and political disasters. The size of the fleet is one of the predominant security advantages of the Millennial Citadel Fleet. For over fifty years of humanitarian aid operation, heads of state have always had issues with foreign militaries doing reconnaissance on their shores. The maritime fleet has a unique design that is unlike any military in the world with speed and safety capabilities far superior to any global naval force. MILLENNIAL CITADEL A HUMANITARIAN AID REFUGEE FLOATING SEA CITY ⇒ The Hydro Lance™ Millennial Citadel: Mobile Floating Sea City™ – The Millennial Citadel Sea City provides a sea worthy command base to facilitate all required storage needs for the fleet, a research infrastructure for cooperative, collaborative, and implementation efforts based on the platform of commercial, and residential real estate developments. Date: 2010 Cost: US$ 30 billion Population: up to 100,000 people each Picture 2. Reed, Walter R. (2009) Approximate Dimensions: modular up to 4 miles wide Millennial Citadel Sea City™ by 5 miles long The mission of the Millennial Citadel within the Millennial Foundation fleet is four-fold: • Facilitate a place of peace for endangered refugees seeking safety; Page 14 of 120
  15. 15. A Private Enterprise Strategy: Humanitarian Aid to Emerging Economy Proposal • Develop an evolving political and economic laboratory within the Millennial Citadel Sea City to test and demonstrate theories of evolving emerging economies among international diplomats, business sponsors, and refugees with a constitutional structure, legal code, monetary/banking system, stock market, health care system, education system, welfare system, and an economic development system (see Appendix B: Millennial Foundation Monetary System and Appendix C: Millennial Foundation Welfare System); • Secure off-shore environment for corporate sponsors and partners contributing to affected economies for a specified period of time in order to test the market penetration towards building an emerging economy in an ecologically sensitive manner; • Provide research on ocean living and cultural development among refugees, employee families, and diplomatic personnel families as a part of experimental research to determine the viability for global warming rescue operations within different environmental conditions. The Millennial Foundation’s Citadel fleet will utilize its floating base for developing different culturally sensitive platforms of community, cultural, economic, and political renewal as a continual learning process. The fleet and its crew will make their homes with their families on the sea cities they are assigned to with the understanding that additional sea cities will be constructed for the purpose of building greater value in other parts of the world. Construction Period: Phase I--4 years; Phase II--3 years; Phase III--2 years Construction Methods: Each modular city section will be pre-built from materials from throughout the world and placed on the HARTHTM platform in order to facilitate land expansion efforts on a continual. Power Sources: Multiple “green” power sources will fuel the Citadel Sea City including: solar electrical generators, photovoltaic solar cells, OTEC (Ocean Thermal Energy) power plants, ‘green’ fuels and windmill generators. Food Sources: Agriculture, livestock, fish farming, sea weed cultivation, mar culture (marine agriculture), horticulture, aeroculture, fresh water distilling, rain collection, humidity condensation, and OTEC distilling. Economic Sources: Tourism, marine research exploration, nautical vessel design and production; development and construction of sea city systems for government and private enterprise use such as: military base floating sea cities, research floating sea cities, energy floating sea cities (similar to oil platforms), recreational floating sea cities, and diplomatic floating sea cities; exportation of sand and ballast dredging, mineral and metal dredging i.e., salt, magnesium, pharmaceuticals, dyes, strontium (used in fireworks, flares, etc.), Rubidium (used in photoelectric cells), copper, manganese dioxide and gold, fertilizers manufactured from seaweed, solid waste and sewage, distilling plants to provide fresh water to the sea city, fresh water to turn formerly arid lands on mainland to orchards and gardens, exportation of fresh water to distant areas on the mainland, fish farming (fish have extremely high conversion ratio of feed consumed to meat produced); fish feed can be processed from waste products, i.e., sewage, and yield of fish produced from fish farms should equal, if not exceed, the productivity of any warm-water pond; seaweed production, Page 15 of 120
  16. 16. A Private Enterprise Strategy: Humanitarian Aid to Emerging Economy Proposal scientific and technological inventions such as portable sea water-to-fresh water distilleries, more efficient photovoltaic cells, improved marine culture techniques, improved windmill design, new kinds of undersea exploration vessels, new developments in boat and floating home designs, etc. Public Transportation Systems: TIG/m™ electromagnetic high speed train and underwater "subway" system; Aero-taxi (flying and floating taxi vehicle capable of holding thirty persons), nautical taxi capable of high speed and undersea travel (12 to 100 person capacity depending upon size of vehicle). Additional public transportation systems are attachable /detachable such as the Hydro Lance™ Airport and the Hydro Lance Seaport; each containing their own individual navigation and transportation systems for scalable logistics and hub development. Private Transportation: Four person jet-air flying platform, amphibious hovercraft vehicles, sailing craft, other nautical vehicles and pedal vehicles. Sea City HARTHTM Platform Propulsion and Navigation: Twenty seven turbo electric drive water-jet/contra-rotating propeller engine systems or other prime power combinations such as HiSCORe™ silent, any-fuel closed cycle direct drives. Navigational systems are built into the structural design at the forward and aft positions. Range of Speed: 25 to 40 knots Judicial System: Given that the Millennial Citadel Mobile Floating Sea City Community existing outside the twelve mile boundary of all governing national jurisdictions Phase I of the project will contain approximately 5,000 people primarily from Millennial Foundation and diplomatic partners from sponsoring nations who will act as an focus group to lay down the founding laws and principles of the city. Because the overall community is made of several very small neighborhood communities each community might wish to develop their own ways of evolving laws. The evolving Sea City™ shall be a master Sxyzicity™ planned development, then involving numerous Architects for individual projects and structures from multiple nations within the master plan for the individual communities to evolve. Studies have pointed out that there is a strong tendency for crime in developing circumstances where individuals feel a lack of relationship with the community due to social or cultural disconnections with traditions. When a community is relatively small, connections are easier to make and maintain particularly when everyone has ownership in the outcomes and crime is usually minimized. This phenomenon is enhanced and strategically applied to the formation of communities within the Millennial Citadel Project.

Land based wind farms are subject to the irregular presence of wind, but such farms located far out in sea may be located in known 30-40 Knot ‘constant wind zones’ and being mobile, so as to take advantage of temporary locations in the path of major storms. The HARTH platforms can be designed for stable mooring locations in known hurricane or typhoon storms Picture 23. Reed, Walter R. (2009) approaching zones. Each such ship produces many Windmill Power Ship™ - Wind Farm Class megawatts (100-300+ Peak Megawatts) of free energy which is directly converted on-board to safe, bio-friendly CryoniteTM’ for the energy storage of the power generated. Fleets may produce sufficient amounts for an entire city or country. This new energy storage commodity is periodically transported by Hydro Lance tender ships for transport to communities where this ‘fresh ocean-air commodity’ may directly power HiSCOrETM engines for electric power generation, vehicles - and may also be directly injected through an expander into insulated rooms or boxes for food storage, fish storage, refrigeration and air-conditioning. Individual land-side distribution may be accommodated in small cryogenic Dewars or with the same logistics and equipment as propane is distributed today. Usage results with zero pollution and fresh air, without having any carbon footprint. Page 29 of 120

Placing any LNG terminal at or approximated to nearby (40-50 miles) populated areas is just plain reckless. While this fuel medium is destined to be a major energy component of many countries and communities, off- load terminals are fraught with risks, regardless of the Picture 24. Reed, Walter R. (2009) Liquid Natural Gas Platform™ - Liquid Energy many safeguards. One human or mechanical error in Class any of the processes or equipment connections, and the resulting explosion would be huge; having been compared to a 20-30 Kiloton nuclear bomb. Alternatively, by placing these terminals far out to sea on a HARTH stable platform, would minimize such risks significantly. Additionally to a terminal off-load, the mammoth sized HARTH platform not only can off-load LNG transport ships, but then convert that LNG to CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) and consume large portions of this cleaner fuel for electrical power generation on-board. That power is then safely transmitted to shore and the existing grid via sea-floor insulated power cable. This then removes the otherwise more conventional sequential product handling steps which significantly lowers the cost of energy delivery. These ultra-stable platforms are powered and mobile, allowing such an investment to move out of the way to safety from any approaching major hurricane, typhoon, or warning of terrorist activity. High-speed HARTH LNG transport ships further reduce the logistical costs of transoceanic delivery. The elevated platforms of the Hydro Lance ships provide un-paralleled ventilation of these specially designed on-board, Nitrogen Gas Blanketed LNG Dewar tanks and composite pressurized CNG tanks, maximizing safety.
