The BC Government would be fools if they didn't get on-board this early in the renewable energy investments estimated to be in the Trillions of dollars according to the New Energy Outlook for 2017 . The initial investment would be costly but the long term returns would be HUGE ! I want to see BC Green Negotiate a Trillion Dollar Investment Deal into BC . I also want to see an over-hall to the Educational system that we HAVE TO HAVE to make it beyond 2100 .
Bloomberg New Energy Finance
“Renewable energy sources are set to represent almost three quarters of the $10.2 trillion the world will invest in new power generating technology until 2040, thanks to rapidly falling costs for solar and wind power, and a growing role for batteries, including electric vehicle batteries, in balancing supply and demand.”
Wanted, a 'clean trillion' dollar investment to limit climate change
Renewables to Grab $7 Trillion of Global Power Investment, Says BNEF
BY THE WAY !!! The world is already , Past Peak Oil Production ! World Reserves of Oil, Coal, and Natural Gas, We now find one barrel of oil for every four we consume.
We need to be Educated on living Environmentally Sustainable on a Global Level NOW , in order to make it past 2100.
1 / Food : Courses in food could be used in schools to also include meals to feed students . Courses in food , Storage , Preserving , Cooking , Organic Farming , Biochar , Organic grass feed ranching , etc.
What Is Biochar, 2,000 year-old practice converts agricultural waste into a soil enhancer that can hold carbon, boost food security, and increase soil biodiversity, and discourage deforestation. The process creates a fine-grained, highly porous charcoal that helps soils retain nutrients and water.
We can't keep toxifying our environment with pollutants and chemicals and expect to stay healthy. We need a healthy biodiversity of microorganisms that are needed for plants to get nutrition from , without the use of chemicals . Increasing our understanding how nature works and working within the structure that nature works. The understanding of how our society consumes food as to the amount of land being used has to be sustainable and must include our entire food consumerism chain on a global level in order to keep the ability for the planet to support our consumption of the food we consume . If we were to understand for instance that our consumption of beef to the amount of land it takes to raise those beef to our dinner table to how much land that land could provide if it was instead used as a vegetable , fruit or grain producing area of land , what would better make use of the land per acre to produce X amount of food per person , are questions that now need to be asked on a global level .
2 / Alternative energy: Education should be able to teach and advance, alternative, sustainable , non toxic , energy sources.
3 / Alternative teaching methods that better suits the student, not the force of the will of how children are molded to become .
4 / Environmental , sustainability to support the human population and it's consumerism from local to global , should be available over an open global educational system .
5 / Sustainable and organic farming of textiles like hemp , cotton , silk , bamboo , wool, processing and producing products that will replace fossil fuel based textiles and fibers .
6 / Advanced alternative architecture that works with the environment, for usage of heat , energy , waste and recycling . As well as alternative ways to build solar cell structures for generating solar energy .
Radically Sustainable Buildings.
7 / Education needs to teach people how to live more sustainable , self efficient , how to budget and live within ones means . Teaching people how to take care of them self's by learning to cook and preserving food, to making and repairing their own cloths, growing organically , sustainable ranching . We need to be reeducated on living as more of a conservationist based society over consumerism based society .
8 / We need an Educational system that is not based on economics over the environment but the environment over economics . Without the environment there is no economics ! Climate change is happening whether we acknowledge it's our fault or not , Fossil Fuel energy and other non-sustainable energy and mineral resources will not last forever .
The GFN estimate that the world's population currently consumes the equivalent of 1.6 planets. This figure should rise to two planets by 2030 based on current trends.
