“The Blue Economy: 10 years – 100 innovations – 100 million jobs is a book by Gunter Pauli….
“The book was written by Gunter Pauli as Founder and Director of Zero Emissions Research and Initiatives.”
There may be some interesting ideas in his book, from which people should be free to pick and choose as they please – if there was a free society. The points that raise flags for me:
- Club of Rome
- “Zero Emissions”
- “reduced energy use”
So we’re going to have a future with reduced energy use? What kind of “future” is that? How do you run the hospitals? How do you manufacture the medical and agricultural equipment with reduced energy? Are the elites and corporations planning to cut back also?
“The Blue Economy- European Edition” by Gunter Pauli is now available on http://www.blueeconomyshop.com/epages/es10582137.sf/en_US/?ObjectPath=/Shops/es10582137/Products/978-3-942276-96-2
The Blue Economy takes readers beyond the obious and aims to wake up the entrepreneur in all of us. The innovations it explores are founded in solid science and demonstrated by multiple platforms. Committed grass roots entrepreneurs worldwide can realize triple cash flow using open-source innovations that create competitive business models. This book will encourage thousands and perhaps millions of us to apply a Blue Economy busines model that will shift us from scarcity to abundance.
The blue economy has been discussed during the pre-conference Rio+20 document negotiations (http://www.iisd.ca/vol27/enb2735e.html?&utm_source=www.iisd.ca&utm_medium=feed&utm_content=2012-05-12&utm_campaign=RSS2.0). More here. It’s a system that buys in to the false story that human beings are causing significant climate change with the production of natural non-polluting carbon dioxide (necessary for plant life) and methane which are part of life itself! Some examples here (http://naturalbuildingblog.com/2011/12/28/blue-economy/). To me, it’s just part of winding everything down, shutting down human activity except for the elites and governments who will do whatever they want, running around with high-tech weapons and surveillance systems to keep the poor people in line. A complete feudal system. Poverty for the majority. That’s why all of this is happening in the first place -see quote from the Club of Rome.
