A new planet by 2030
Flagship WWF Living Planet report warns that within two decades the
global economy will be consuming the resources of two Earths each

I voted for “epoch change” because that’s what we are in. We are
forced to change all our attitudes, our behaviour and our views
about politics, industrialization, finance in short our being in
this world as humans. Up till now we only got what’s left from this
world, - and this we have to preserve.
First of all we have to change most of our technologies, no matter
at what costs (beside – it is obviously that the ongoing changes –
what is commonly called “green economy” creates more jobs than the
clinging to the “old” ones).
Study: Renewable energy creates more jobs than expected
Expansion of the renewable energy in Germany has even higher growth
and job effects, than up to now expected. With about 340,000
employees the number of the jobs has more than doubled since 2004.
The expansion of renewable energy creates clearly more jobs in
Germany, than up to now expected.
The employment balance in renewable energy sector is positive. In
nearly all analysed scenarios an ambitious expansion of renewable
energy led in Germany to definite positive net occupation effects,
compared to an energy supply situation which renounces renewable
energy. The figures published today are the result of a research
project which the Federal Ministry of Environment allocated in 2008
to a team of famous research institutes under leadership of the
Society for Economic Structural Research (GWS, Osnabrück). This
investigation rests on an extensive questioning of about 1,200
enterprises of the German renewable energy industry, including her
suppliers, as well as on a deeply diversified analysis of future

Cleantech Boosts Jobs in Specific Regions and Segments:
Above are only two examples/articles that these changes are taking
The economic climate!
It is difficult to do this...... impossible from the economic point
of view to do that...... the simple economics demands that...... a
lot of discussions are taking place about sustainable green energy
not fitting in the currant economic system ???
What if we see it the other way around: The currant economic system
does not fit for the development of a sustainable green energy
Just some month ago the financial system has shown so drastically
that it does not fit into our social system - it would have been
the best chance to change that!
What kind of crisis do we have to experience to show the
disadvantages of our economic system for everyone?
The political climate!
Sure, this is a hard one! Even though a lot of things do happen and
some of our representatives are aware and engaged, the right and
uncompromised political solutions are rare.
Too much is a politician engaged with his own personal power plays:
Does the voter accept me? – seems to be the easiest task – because
the common voter doesn’t seem to care too much as long as his basic
needs are not endangered.
Are my actions in alliance with the party programme? – this is off
course a more tricky one and occupies more time and thoughts than
working for the public.
Are my doings and my decisions beneficial for me personally? –
meaning, do I get a good job with the industry once I decide to
leave (or have to leave) politics.
Those seem to be the most important motives for politicians
nowadays (correct me if I am wrong!) and exactly these motives are
blocking progress and technological new orientation.
So are we in the middle of an “Epoch Change”? - undoubtedly
All around us economic growth is picking up again after the orgy of
greed in the financial world which corrupted nearly every branch of
our political and social system.
Economic growth, from all what we know about economics by now, will
result in higher consume, higher prices and higher expectations –
but this time something unforeseen will happen (unforeseen by those
who did not watch the development) some of the minerals that we
need so badly to produce our sophisticated products will become
extremely expensive and some will even get exploited. Natural
resources, potable water for instance, will become extremely rare.
The oceans, now already over fished, will not be able to keep up
the bio diversity, more and more land will fall into the hands of
financial trusts to be misused for the production of “bio fuels”
Here we are again – the need to change technologies – take for
example the combustion engine! This is an antique! Nikolaus August
Otto invented this thing in 1860 and patented it 1876! Chistian
Reithmann, who patented the 4-stroke engine in 1860 was slightly
What if both would have known what damage they did to our
environment!? And we are still using it today and are prepared to
destroy even more, just to keep on feeding it!
We still burn things to produce energy! This is stoneage behaviour
from the times the caveman learned to make fire to cook and warm
We still waste, - actually we are the only living specie on this
planet that creates waste!
Nature doesn’t know such thing like waste! Everything gets recycled
– is energy!
We are the only species on earth with the ability to destroy this
planet, - we did nothing to create it – but we can destroy it. We
have the power – but power alone never makes sense!
More than ever is this the time for an “Epoch Change” – it has to
We, here in this illustrious circle, are actually the trend
setters, the ones that work hard for some changes, what ever
motives we might have – even if it is to make some money out of
this new wave of substantial future developments.
We are the driven ones and the drivers.
In this sense, - let’s keep it up!
It can be done!
