Could it be that it is not how, but what we use as money that matters when contemplating the root causes of Climate Change and other global problems? This is the question that is at the root of our Economic and Philosophical Treatise which bears the cryptic name:
While there seems to be an endless debate as to what humankind should do in order to reduce our impact on the environment, ironically most of this and indeed countless other political debates result in more action being taken, either to cease and desist an activity or mobilize to clean up and reduce future environmental impacts of certain actions.
However, every action brings about some sort of reaction, often in the form of an “unintended consequence” which serves to negate any good that the carrying out of the well intended initial mandate had managed to accomplish.
Despite Al Gore’s call to action, realistic and manageable solutions to Climate Change remain elusive. As such, where Gore and other Climate crusaders have failed, we have been compelled to step in. You see, there is really a quite simple, certain, and palatable solution to Climate Change that could be implemented today.
The solution lies not in well-known solutions such as recycling, Cap and Trade schemes, development restrictions, technological advances, or taxes and other social engineering methods. In fact, it has absolutely nothing to do with what people do or what they or their governments spend their money on.
It lies in What we use as money circa 2013.
What the world uses as money is not really money, but a highly liquid debt instrument. While the difference is imperceptible to most, the accumulation of mistaken incentives and resulting actions on behalf of humankind which are inherent in the insane debt as currency model are beginning to manifest themselves in nature, and nature itself is beginning to bring itself into balance unilaterally.
Where humankind and the land once lived in a peaceful, mutually beneficial balance with one another, the relationship has become antagonistic and will remain so until the defects in the money supply are remedied.
How, then, can these defects be remedied? Ah, fellow taxpayer, it is for this reason that the above mentioned book contains 400 pages, for while the answer is simple, it will require that humankind let go of some deeply ingrained ideas which a vast majority of us do not even know we hold fast to.
