Grow Your Vision and Take Action

Prince Charles, now King Charles III, in the early 1970s, was the first royal environmentalist, he promoted organic agriculture, and was ridiculed.  This Climate Change aware monarch is still advocating for solutions. His Foundation still supports diversity and gives grants in science and the arts to young people. His children carry on that care and tradition. The Prince William Foundation and its Earth Shot prize continues that mission of encouragement in a tangible way, awarding

(£) one million pounds (£) to 5 recipients each year.

*“Just as mankind had the power to push the world to the brink so, too, do we have the power to bring it back into balance." “We’re busily wrecking the chances for future generations at a rapid rate of knots by not recognizing the damage we’re doing to the natural environment, bearing in mind that this is the only planet that we know has any life on it.”

Today, students are often taught that American democracy has its roots in ancient Rome or Greece. But the American republic also took cues from the Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy. Philosophers like John Locke, whose writings influenced the creation of the United States, wrote with amazement about how the Iroquois Confederacy vested power in people, not a monarch. Meanwhile, Benjamin Franklin wrote letters to the Iroquois, seemingly calling out how people incorrectly viewed them as “ignorant savages,” and spent significant time learning about their federal-style government. Indigenous methods of farming and forestry are being

utilized again.

There should be no such thing as “culture wars” or “student debt”.  ABCC.

The Teal New Deal

We have retained the many proven systems they researched, developed, proven and demonstrated under the business known as Alliance BioConversions Company (ABCC). Our mission is to provide sustainable and clean Water, Food, Land, and Energy systems to our community, our country, and globally, to mitigate the worst effects of conflict and Climate Change. The systems we have presented allow the “rewilding” of our forests and wildlife, and the saving of marine ecologies.

There are 8 billion people on the planet.

There can be 8 billion solutions to Climate Change.

*”How many people will it take to unscrew a planet? All of us!"

You can be a champion! We are encouraged with the marches for getting weapons of war out of civilian society, for human rights, for voting rights, for science, animal rights, health care rights, for democracy, and for the planet – by young and old. Please - Sign petitions, lobby lawmakers, complain to companies who sell poisons… every little bit helps, and it all adds up. Together, we can do everything.

Let the world come together. We all could come together in the common aim of saving the planet.

Common Cause, Common Decency, Common Sense.

 

ABCC’s impression of CNN’s Climate Tech News

As seen on CNN’s “The Whole Story” with Anderson Cooper

"How to Unscrew the Planet”, April 23rd, 2023

- Bill Weir. Climate Reporter.

 

People who we believe can turn things around and are working on it –  

Sir David King, Cambridge University, UK. Founder, Centre for Climate Repair. Biomimicry for Marine Biomass Regeneration, using volcanic ash as whale feces to grow phytoplankton; Creating Clouds to refreeze the Arctic. This is needed by all the Arctic nations. "What we do over the next five years is going to determine what humanity manages to do for the next thousand years – it’s as simple as that." - Sir David King.  Everything must be proven in a lab and with a pilot program before being scaled up. As Sir David King says, “We must be careful with technology. We can’t just go ahead out of desperation.”

Bertrand Piccard. Geneva, Switzerland. Solar Impulse Foundation. Solar flight. Funding for 1450 solutions. Wave Roller (for energy) for powering ports in Portugal and Spain. UDQ – garbage into bioplastic. Eco Pact – 30 to 100% reduced carbon footprint.

These techs are working -

 

U.S. innovators working with others from around the world for carbon removal – a.) Marty Odlin. Fisherman. Maine, Running Tide - Kelp and limestone buoys for carbon removal and alkalinization of the oceans to combat acidification. UK’s Seafield- Sargasso Sea Kelp. Kelp tech. €100 million Euros. Iceland’s tech to turn wastewater into a Blue Lagoon spa. b.) Silicon Valley titan Peter Reinhardt, who co-founded and is CEO of carbon removal tech company Charm Industrial - turns crop waste into Bio-Char for energy and Bio-Oil, to be injected back into oil wells – the oil industry in reverse.

These processes are not always working and take too much time to scale up –

c.) Elon Musk’s $100 million XPrize. Iceland’s Carbfix and On Power for pure CO2gas streams to be turned into rock. d.) Stripe – eCommerce. Investors are Google -Alphabet; Facebook – META; Shopify; McKinsey and Company - for $1billion for carbon removal for 7 years. Mathew Eisaman, Ben Tarbell - Ebb Carbon. Saltwater into bicarbonate for 10,000 years of carbon sequestration. e.) Cal Tech - Floating solar platforms to capture CO2 from air and oceans. f.) Harry Atwater, Captura – captures CO2 from the ocean into a pure gas stream to be stored underground. Investor is Saudi Oil Company, ARAMCO.  g.) Climeworks –The goal is turning carbon back into rock. Investor is Google’s Moon-Shot Team.

The recent gold rush to cryptocurrency, data storage facilities, and AI, are the latest, most dangerous technologies to put profits over people and the planet. They use huge amounts of dirty energy, negating much of the good work we are working to implement.  With AI, we will not be able to distinguish Truth from Falsity, and should be nowhere near our nuclear weapons. Neither can we trust our adversaries not to use them maliciously. These techs need to be strictly controlled and powered by solar and helix wind.

 

These proven techs have great promise -

 h.) Related efforts are Hydrogen made from Sun, electrolysis, and seawater, and Salt-based batteries. i.) Growing Bangladesh – The iFarmer App. Currently with 87,000 farmers, aiming for 500,000, is making a big difference in food production.

“Mother Nature is the best Engineer.” Heal Nature with Nature.

ABCC has worked with many countries, and is conducting due diligence on all these efforts. For example, phytoplankton needs sunlight, and the shade of many solar platforms or kelp buoys dropped to the bottom of the seafloor, generating beneficial microbes, may be a good idea. Pilot programs need to be conducted and analyzed.

As with Sweden and Mexico, ABCC is not in favor of Silver Linings. Rebranded as “Climate Intervention”, it is a version of the US military’s geo-engineering of Chemtrails, ”Owning the Weather”, which has smothered the chlorophyll production of trees, and worsened the effects of drought and disease in our forests – as testified by botanists before the UN. They cover everything (water, crops, us) with tiny soot particles of heavy metals (mining wastes) which can penetrate through skin and into our lungs. Spread by aircraft, they use enormous amounts of jet fuel. As does the wasteful and unnecessary “space tourism”. These billionaires need to bio-convert and redirect their thinking, and their resources, to Focus on the Earth. ABCC. 

Eco-tourism is the fastest growing and most lucrative segment of tourism and helps preserve endangered wildlife and their habitats.

Dean Kamen for XPrize.org   We were thrilled to see the youth, from 180 countries, participate in the Climate solutions event in Geneva. Bioplastics, kelp, mangroves, eco-resorts were well thought out and presented. They  all cheered on their “competition” and all worked for collaboration. “Collaboration is far more lucrative than Competition.” - ABCC. The youth personified this collaboration belief of ours. And we are encouraged by the marches of all ages to get weapons of war out of our civilian society, for voting rights and financing reform, for health care rights, for human rights, for science, and for Climate Justice.

Some good - Carbon Credits can make profits for companies that can be managers for electrifying cities, like induction cooking for net zero cooking. Imagine if Jeff Bezos required bioplastics for all the merchandise Amazon distributed in electric vehicles. He could be a hero and become even richer, and can be taxed. Some Oil companies, as did Basic Petroleum in Manila, who was funding us in the Philippines, and now, the technology hub of the UAE (Dubai and Abu Dhabi), gives us hope and a sense of achievement. China is growing in solar, and will do more. They liked our Waste-to-Energy-to-Food systems – W2E2F - and our organic Water clean-up and Aquaculture. Actually, everyone we met throughout Asia-Pacific, in the Caribbean, and the Middle East!

China is currently strip-mining th oceans and needs to understand and comply with th Ocens Treaty for it's own safety to preserve oceans and fish stocks.The country of Odan has th best ocen fishing ships and technologies to promote sustainability. 

 

Some bad - Fossil Fuel companies’ profits have surged to obscene heights, especially during Russia's Fascist invasion of Ukraine. Oil wells around the world are the greatest emitters of Methane -twenty times worse than CO2. Meanwhile, year after year, these obscene profits steal from the other 99%. Backed by Big Banks - Chase, Citi, Wells Fargo, and B of A, and Insurers - Travelers, Chubb, and The Hartford. Tell them - no more! We are already the world leader in Oil and Gas production. We certainly do not need new deep-crust land or deepwater drilling leases or subsidies. And we certainly do not need more plastic and vinyl chloride explosions from “bomb trains,” and plants that poison people with their emissions.  It is time for the fossil fuel industries to invest in edible and compostable plastics, Clean Food, Clean Water, Clean Energy, and Green Building. With green cement and green steel, we don’t need any more mining, tearing up the land and even the ocean floor. It is UNNECCESARY.  

When we rebuild our countries with Green Building - Clean Food, Clean Water, Clean Energy, and cleaning up our pollution with Waste-to-Energy-to-Food systems, we will truly push back on Climate Change.

Beware of “greenwashing” by the cruel inequality of Corporatism, masquerading as merit-based Capitalism. Their propaganda poses as News - spin, opinion, conspiracies, defamation, divisive culture wars, misinformation, and disinformation. They are “the Fifth Column” – the equally greedy grifters of reactionary media, and Fascist propaganda, continually seeded by “Putin’s Wagner Group” and their IRA – Internet Research Agency.

Leave behind the fear, divisiveness, and ill-will. It’s a waste of everyone’s energy. And Time.  Balance is required to end the spiral of destructive behavior. Focus on Education and Transformation.

Stop War.

Stop Warming.

“When life seems hard, the courageous do not lie down and accept defeat;

instead, they are all the more determined to struggle for a better future.”

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Christmas Broadcast, 2008.

 

No one can out-engineer Nature, but we can help Nature to accelerate the healing.

Both Pope Francis and the Dalai Lama believe that harming the Earth is blasphemy. So do we.
