Unified Theory of Modern World Problems?

I have ran for public office three times already and plan to do so again in the near future.

I am of the opinion that local currency units such as CalgaryDollars.ca/ and the Ithaca Hour give us an example of how monetary policy could perhaps be used in such a way that the economic and political atmosphere of this entire planet could be radically transformed within a couple of years.

I believe that alternative types of green energy, such as the Stan Meyer Hydrogen Fuel Vehicle could be viewed in a sense as a prop in a semi-reality film project and one of the Seasteading Institute projects could be used in such a way that their local currency unit could be used as a prop in a film project that on one level raises awareness of a specific type of green energy but on another level could also be used to pay scientists to be actors playing the role of researchers who end up owning a percentage of the value of the films produced that surround the project!

Mr. Al Gore and Sir Richard Branson got me interested in climate change and how best to respond to it. I live beside a lake classified as tidal water so I am most worried about the threat of rising ocean levels.

[quote]Collapse Of Antarctic Ice Sheet Would Likely Put Washington, D.C. Largely Underwater
ScienceDaily (Feb. 5, 2009) — University of Toronto and Oregon State University geophysicists have shown that should the West Antarctic Ice Sheet collapse and melt in a warming world – as many scientists are concerned it will – it is the coastlines of North America and of nations in the southern Indian Ocean that will face the greatest threats from rising sea levels.[/quote][hr]
I am certainly no expert on this subject but I am profoundly encouraged by what I have read so far regarding the Sahara Forest Project.

[quote]Norway and Jordan Sign Agreement to Make Sahara Forest Project Oasis a Reality

A New Mexico biologist has advocated a response to climate change that makes a great deal of sense to me.

Carl Cantrell:"[quote]So how is our problem of continental drying causing global warming? It all has to do with vegetation and sunlight. When sun light hits a plant, it causes a process which we call photosynthesis where the energy from the sun light creates oxygen for us to breathe, water for us to drink, and is stored as sugar for plants and animals to use. When the same sun light hits the soil, all of its energy turns into heat and is radiated back into the atmosphere… ."

“Therefore, the less vegetation you have on the planet, the more sunlight is being turned into heat and the warmer the planet becomes…”

"Just take a look at any satellite picture of the earth showing heat and you will see that our deserts are the warmest spots on the planet by far. More heat is being generated by just one of the top four or five deserts than by all of our cities combined… "

“The truth is that you can do more to decrease global warming by just reducing the average temperature for the Sahara Desert by one or two degrees than if we humans completely quit using fossil fuels and returned to the cave….”

“So, how would you start working to resolve this problem? Easy, cool the deserts and get some vegetation growing on them as soon as possible. But the method is much more complex than that. You have to use the prevailing trade winds in relation to the deserts to get the best results as quickly as possible and it will be extremely expensive….”

“Then we build desalination plants along the coast near these water sheds and pipe water to the tops or ridges of the water sheds…”

“We need to start working on this as soon as possible because, if the planet reaches a point to where it is warming faster than our technology can possibly stop or reverse this warming trend, then our planet is lost and all life will cease to exist on this planet within a relatively short period of time. We will need to start with the largest and hottest deserts because cooling them will have the greatest benefit in the least time (Global Warming II by biologist Carl Cantrell).”[/quote]

Several days ago I ran into a quotation apparently from the Prophet Mohammed that gives me hope that this alternative method of combatting climate change could give some major common ground between the Islamic nations with the western democracies!

The following message posted to an Islamic Facebook group on February 27, 2012 at 5:42 am has the potential to alter the relationship between the Islamic nations and the west!


"scientific miracles of islam

[quote]Prophet Mohamed (peace be upon him) spoke very carefully about a scientific fact realized by scientists few years ago. He said ( God will not held day of resurrection unless Arab land returns greens and rivers again ) [Narrated by Muslim.]

scientifically, it was proved that one day the Arabian peninsula was full of greens and rivers as satellite photos confirm that there are buried rivers under the sand of Arab land , one of the great scientists of the American space agency (NASA) says that the taken photos for the desert had shown that one day this area was covered with rivers and lakes like Europe and one day in the future it will back again like the past."[/quote][hr]
If ocean levels rise by merely one meter nearly one hundred million people may lose their homes in the one nation of Bangladesh.

The city of New Orleans, the State of Florida and even Manhattan Island could be hit far harder than we might imagine by a one meter rise. In my province of Nova Scotia, Canada the town of Truro seems especially vulnerable to climate change due to the fact that the Bay of Fundy has a funnelling effect on tidal waters which produces the world’s highest tides.

It is theoretically possible to produce food for the one billion hungry people living on this planet at the same time that we directly combat climate change in a manner that may be extremely effective!

Well, I just use bitcoin, I don’t really care about currencies that I can’t use everywhere.

[/quote]Everywhere were you are connected to the global internet isn’t always everywhere.
If you are in a country like Iran the government could cut your connection to the global bitcoin blockchain.

Even if you do have bitcoin you still can’t use it everywhere because few merchant accept bitcoins as payment.

True that bitcoin is still not widely accepted. It appears to be slowly changing though.
