For too long, the planet has been operating under the influence of grasping elitists drunk with their own self-importance. But now times are changing. Along with revelations about corrupt (also bankrupt) central banking are coming reforms, with the purse strings held for the first time by the BRICS coalition of nations (Britain, Russia, India and China), who have vowed to end poverty and actually fix the environment.

The first environmental movement was begun by 1960s flower-power idealists, who dreamt of a utopian future in harmony with Mother Earth. Opposing, were elitists who owned capitalism, which kept them in massive profit by using ‘wasteful’ extraneous demand placed on supply through endless war.  However, Report from Iron Mountain on the Possibility and Desirability of Peace (Dial, 1967) suggested that a wasteful economic equivalent of war could be found in a threat to the environment.

So, given a shortage of willing cannon-fodder and rising environmental awareness, the elitists  called forth a global ‘green’ political environmental movement to ostensibly ‘save’ the planet, but only for themselves. Idealists came onboard and weren’t told it was a ‘trojan horse’ for a global governance and depopulation plan, faking energy scarcity and global climate crisis for power and profit.

Along with the book, The Limits to Growth, postulating future population crisis, Peak Oil, the myth that world oil was ending, was promoted. (Russia has proved oil is abiotic, continuously produced in the bowels of Earth.) Soon, engineered shortages of oil took prices through the roof. Advanced solutions to energy and pollution remained shelved.

Acid rain provided a basis to create markets for trading excess SO2 and NO2 emission credits (Clean Air Act US 1990). Big oil/gas then intended the same with CO2, to boost coal-seam gas over coal, establishing the basis for a CO2 climate crisis now contested by many.

Central banking has been a private cartel with an exclusive franchise to create high-interest debt from virtually nothing; underpinning inflated energy costs with expensive capital, advancing poverty, environmental degradation, home foreclosures, a culture of haves and have-nots, financial collapse, war and more. However, this era is almost over.

Keshe Technologies have announced advanced plasma technologies to revolutionise transport and energy.  So finally, we seem at the point where abundant energy and new financial regimes could open up a possible utopian world. Let us affirm this, ensuring our politicians are up to speed.
