“Life is a mirror and will reflect
back to the thinker what he
thinks into it.”
-- Ernest Holmes

came across material
for different project
• Enthusiastic but…
• Unfocused, confused
“If you want to change the world…
        start with yourself.”

Service Creates Abundance…
“Life is a mirror and will reflect

-- Ernest Holmes
…and New Opportunities

Our Home:
100%...




                …solar-powered
                since 2003
…and New Opportunities

Our Car: 100% electric,
solar-powered
Solar Power Basics
Daytime: Too Much Energy

 Day: system usually makes
more energy than home can use
 Extra energy flows back onto
utility grid
 Runs the electric meter
backwards for credit
 Extra power used by others
Nighttime: Not Enough Energy

 Solar panels don’t work at
night
 Take back energy that’s
“banked” during the day
 Only pay bill once a year
 On avg, use as much as you
put in, your bill is ZERO!
 “Net Metering” program
 Energy Interdependence
Loaves, Fishes… and Abundance
Global Problem:
               Hunger and Starvation
• UNWorld Food Program
Report (Feb. 17, 2007)
• 850 million people are
“hungry or malnourished”
• Half of this number are
children
• 18,000 children die of
hunger and malnutrition
every day
• 1 death every 5 seconds
Scale Up to Global Level?




    • Global energy interdependence?
    • How far can shared electricity travel?
Abundance at the Speed of Light
Energy Supply vs. Demand

• Enough sunlight falls on
earth’s surface

   in 1 hour
• To meet 100% of world’s
energy needs for

   1 full year
Energy Supply vs. Demand

• Not Always…
   •   the right kind of energy
   •   at the right place
   •   at the right time
• Not a supply problem, but a
distribution problem
• Global Energy “Internet”
Global “Energy Internet”
  Does Not Exist Yet
U.S. Electrical Grid
European Electrical Grid
Regional Energy Grids
   Not Connected
Our World from a New Perspective
Connecting Regional Grids into
   Global Energy Network
Electricity: Basis of Civilization
   • Developed world: 2,000+ kWh per capita




             • Developing world: 1,000 – 2,000 kWh per capita




• Poverty: Less than 1,000 kWh per capita
Electricity: Basis of Civilization
• Clean drinking water and adequate
water treatment systems
• Refrigeration: stable food supply
and medicines
• Reduction of disease and infant
mortality
• Improved standard of living: stable
population growth
• Correlates with high literacy rate
Electricity: Basis of Civilization
• Current world population               Billions of People

Loaves, Fishes…. And Abundance
• Connect  regional electricity
grids into worldwide energy
network
• Connect renewable energy
resources (hydro, solar, wind)
• Phase out energy generating
plants causing greatest
pollution
• Provide universal access to
electricity and power grid
• Goal: 2,000 kWh per
capita/year
Global Energy Network Strategy
• Global Energy Network
Institute (GENI)
• Located in San Diego
• Founded 1986
• Based on work of Dr. R.
Buckminster Fuller
• Inventor of geodesic dome
• “World Game” simulations in
1960s and 1970s
Global Energy Network Endorsements
• Walter   Cronkite
• Al Gore
• Boutros Boutros-Ghali

• Rev. Desmond Tutu
• Vincente Fox
• Dr. Jonas Salk
Global Energy Grid: Largely Built
Internet: 1972 – 1998

Your Journey?
A Love Like That

Even after all this time
the sun never says
to the earth, 'You owe me.‘

Look what happens with a love like
that, it lights the whole sky.

  • 24. …and New Opportunities Our Car: 100% electric, solar-powered
  • 26. Daytime: Too Much Energy  Day: system usually makes more energy than home can use  Extra energy flows back onto utility grid  Runs the electric meter backwards for credit  Extra power used by others
  • 27. Nighttime: Not Enough Energy  Solar panels don’t work at night  Take back energy that’s “banked” during the day  Only pay bill once a year  On avg, use as much as you put in, your bill is ZERO!  “Net Metering” program  Energy Interdependence
  • 29. Global Problem: Hunger and Starvation • UNWorld Food Program Report (Feb. 17, 2007) • 850 million people are “hungry or malnourished” • Half of this number are children • 18,000 children die of hunger and malnutrition every day • 1 death every 5 seconds
