Theories of Climate Change

A couple of days ago I heard the first time about Advanced Engagement. I was curious about it and found a paper written by Professor Fuerth in the Internet. Leon Sigmund Fuerth, born 1939, is a former diplomat and served as a national security adviser to former US -Vice President Al Gore. Mr. Fuerth is directing The Project on Forward Engagement at the George Washington University and is there also a professor for International Affairs.

Earthquakes and the Infrastructure

As long as such natural disasters and catastrophes, as floods, earth- and sea quakes and volcano eruptions are happening only locally, the repair of the damage is, relatively, easy and cheap. Without diminishing the sufferings of the afflicted population. What if the sum of all local catastrophes is just one catastrophe on a global scale? Signs are already to be seen. Every other week a major earthquake, one in New Zealand and the other in Japan, just as the year 2011 started. The last major...

For about 150 years, from the 19. century until the middle of...

The topic of this post...

The Failure of the TOTEM System

The title of this post is misleading, since the TOTEM System as a concept and the idea of the Inherent Energy are viable solutions for challenging the Climate Change and the growing World Population. But one reason stands against the TOTEM System and the Inherent Energy and this the urge to maximize profits. This seems is the most important imperative today. For this very reasons Climate Change is happening. And no one is free of this guilt, because no one will be satisfied if one gets always...
