A Solution to Global Problems

What the Experts are Saying

"A global energy network makes enormous sense if we are to meet global energy needs with a minimal impact on the world's environment" Al Gore, as Senator, Tennessee

"Electrical interconnections between regions -- even between continents -- can and must be tackled now" Walter Hickel, as Governor of Alaska

"The extensive international cooperation necessary would mean alternative expenditures to armaments" Yevgeny Velikhov as VP of Russian Academy of Sciences

"The most thoughtful and scientific solution to the world's problems I've seen" Ron Williams, Director of R&D, General Motors

A Global Challenge

Inventor, scientist, and mathematician R. Buckminster Fuller asked the question:

"How do we make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological damage or disadvantage to anyone?"

The Dymaxion map shows that all the continents are connected, or separated by relatively short distances.

This "one-world island in a one-world ocean" helps us visualize global resources, population and distribution patterns which characterize the complex trends and critical needs of today's world.
