Technocracy’s Endgame: Global Smart Grid

‚ÄúThere is a new world wide web emerging right before our eyes. It is a global energy net¬≠work and, like¬†the internet, it will change our cul¬≠ture, society and how we do busi¬≠ness. More impor¬≠tantly, it will alter how we use, trans¬≠form and exchange energy.‚ÄĚ‚ÄČ‚Äď‚ÄČTerrawatts.com home page

Intro­duc­tion

The dark horse of the New World Order is not Com­mu­nism, Socialism or Fas­cism: It is Technocracy.

The devel¬≠op¬≠ment and imple¬≠men¬≠ta¬≠tion of¬†Smart Grid tech¬≠nology¬†in the U.S.‚ÄČ‚Äď‚ÄČreinventing the elec¬≠trical grid with Wifi-enabled dig¬≠ital power meters‚ÄČ‚Äď‚ÄČis pro¬≠ceeding at break¬≠neck speed. Although Smart Grid is the result of years of gov¬≠ern¬≠ment plan¬≠ning, the recent kickoff was made pos¬≠sible through mas¬≠sive ‚Äúgreen‚Ä̬†grants¬†that were qui¬≠etly included in Pres¬≠i¬≠dent Obama‚Äôs eco¬≠nomic stim¬≠ulus package starting in 2009.

These lucra¬≠tive grants have drawn in a host of cor¬≠po¬≠rate players, from utility com¬≠pa¬≠nies to dig¬≠ital meter man¬≠u¬≠fac¬≠turers to con¬≠trol soft¬≠ware ven¬≠dors. Global com¬≠pa¬≠nies like IBM, GE and Siemens are putting their full effort behind the ‚Äúbuild-out‚ÄĚ that will con¬≠sol¬≠i¬≠date all of America into a single, inte¬≠grated, communication-enabled elec¬≠tric delivery and mon¬≠i¬≠toring system, col¬≠lec¬≠tively called Smart Grid.

Pro­po­nents of Smart Grid claim that it will empower the con­sumer to better manage his or her power con­sump­tion and hence, costs. The utility com­pa­nies will there­fore be more effi­cient in bal­ancing power loads and require­ments across diverse markets.

How­ever, like car­nival barkers, these Smart Grid hock­sters never reveal where or how Smart­Grid came into being, nor what the ulti­mate endgame aims to achieve; per­haps most of them have no idea either, but simply repeat the mantra as if they know what they are talking about.

In Smart­Grid: The Imple­men­ta­tion of Tech­noc­racy?, I revealed the back­ground of both Tech­noc­racy and Smart Grid, and most impor­tantly, the links between them. Smart Grid is born out of Tech­noc­racy and not the other way around.

‚Ä®

Tech¬≠noc¬≠racy is a total¬≠i¬≠tarian system of gov¬≠ern¬≠ment where sci¬≠en¬≠tists, engi¬≠neers and tech¬≠ni¬≠cians mon¬≠itor and con¬≠trol all facets of per¬≠sonal and civic life‚ÄČ‚Äď‚ÄČeco¬≠nomic, social and polit¬≠ical. Herein lies the real danger: Who are these unelected con¬≠trollers and why should anyone believe that they would be benev¬≠o¬≠lent dic¬≠ta¬≠tors instead of tyrants? Amer¬≠i¬≠cans are a freedom-loving people who would cer¬≠tainly reject Technocracy‚Äôs stealth takeover, if only they were aware of it. Indeed, Amer¬≠i¬≠cans¬†did¬†point¬≠edly reject Tech¬≠noc¬≠racy in the 1930‚Ä≤s!

Thirty years ago, a researcher‚Äôs mantra was ‚ÄúFollow the money, follow the power.‚ÄĚ This must now be restated: ‚ÄúFollow the energy, follow the power.‚ÄĚ

Require­ments

In 1932, Tech¬≠noc¬≠racy, Inc. called for the destruc¬≠tion of price-based eco¬≠nomic sys¬≠tems and the cre¬≠ation of an energy-based accounting system that would mea¬≠sure inputs and out¬≠puts of human activity in terms of energy pro¬≠duc¬≠tion, dis¬≠tri¬≠b¬≠u¬≠tion and con¬≠sump¬≠tion. The require¬≠ments for a suc¬≠cessful system was co-authored by M. King Hub¬≠bert, a young geo-physicist who later devel¬≠oped ‚ÄúHubbert‚Äôs Peak Oil Theory‚ÄĚ that pro¬≠vided intel¬≠lec¬≠tual backing for the modern envi¬≠ron¬≠mental or ‚Äúgreen‚ÄĚ movement.

Specif­i­cally, Hub­bert detailed the require­ments for a suc­cessful imple­men­ta­tion of Technocracy:

  1. “Reg­ister on a con­tin­uous 24 hour-per-day basis the total net con­ver­sion of energy.
  2. “By means of the reg­is­tra­tion of energy con­verted and con­sumed, make pos­sible a bal­anced load.
  3. “Pro­vide a con­tin­uous inven­tory of all pro­duc­tion and consumption
  4. “Pro­vide a spe­cific reg­is­tra­tion of the type, kind, etc., of all goods and ser­vices, where pro­duced and where used
  5. ‚ÄúPro¬≠vide spe¬≠cific reg¬≠is¬≠tra¬≠tion of the con¬≠sump¬≠tion of each indi¬≠vidual, plus a record and descrip¬≠tion of the indi¬≠vidual.‚ÄĚ[Scott, Howard et al,¬†Tech¬≠noc¬≠racy Study Source, p. 232]

Of course, the tech­nology to ful­fill these require­ments did not exist in 1932. How­ever, it is worth noting that Tech­noc­racy Inc.’s lead­er­ship was inti­mately familiar with the early work of Inter­na­tional Busi­ness Machine’s (IBM) com­puting tech­nology. They clearly envi­sioned a time in the future where the advance­ment of the tech­nology would meet the min­imum level nec­es­sary to imple­ment these requirements.

That day of advanced tech­nology has come and the project is now calledSmart Grid. The endgame is to imple­ment a mod­ern­ized ver­sion of his­toric Tech­noc­racy on a national, con­ti­nental and global basis.

It is strongly rec­om­mended that the reader care­fully review Smart­Grid: The Imple­men­ta­tion of Tech­noc­racy andCarbon Cur­rency: A New Begin­ning for Tech­noc­racy? to gain a solid per­spec­tive on the his­tor­ical aspect of Technocracy.

Some would argue that it is mere coin­ci­dence that these require­ments are fully met with Smart Grid tech­nology. How­ever, the rea­sons for the exis­tence of Tech­noc­racy in the 1930′s are the same rea­sons given today: Energy effi­ciency, load bal­ancing, fair­ness, alle­vi­ating poverty and hunger, etc.

The feigned con­cern for those in poverty and hunger in the under­de­vel­oped nations is hollow. Tech­noc­racy is point­edly amoral in its prac­tice: The means (their sci­en­tific method/process) jus­ti­fies the end, what­ever the end might turn out to be.

Going Global

In addi­tion to the United States, Smart Grid is being imple­mented in both Canada and Mexico. Plan­ners are working on stan­dards that will inte­grate all of North America into a single, uni­fied Smart Grid system.

More­over, there is a serious ini­tia­tive underway to create a Global Smart Grid that will inte­grate all the con­ti­nents on the globe!

The Global Energy Net¬≠work Insti¬≠tute (GENI) presents this Dymaxion ‚ĄĘ Map of the world from the per¬≠spec¬≠tive of the North Pole that reveals the global grid cur¬≠rently under con¬≠struc¬≠tion. The only part of planet earth left untouched is Antarc¬≠tica. The yellow lines rep¬≠re¬≠sent high-voltage elec¬≠trical trans¬≠mis¬≠sion links that are capable of trans¬≠fer¬≠ring large amounts of energy from con¬≠ti¬≠nent to continent.

The GENI project is gath­ering momentum and is endorsed by the Dalai Lama, Arch­bishop Desmond Tutu, Sen. James Jef­fords (I-VT) and Noel Brown (North Amer­ican Director, United Nations Envi­ron­mental Pro­gram), the United Nations and by the gov­ern­ments of Canada New Zealand, Switzer­land, and China, among others.

The nature of the global grid is revealed on the Ter­rawatts website:

“There is a new world wide web emerging right before our eyes. It is a global energy net­work and, like the Internet, it will change our cul­ture, society and how we do busi­ness. More impor­tantly, it will alter how we use, trans­form and exchange energy.

‚ÄúThere is no energy¬†supply¬†problem, there is an energy¬†dis¬≠tri¬≠b¬≠u¬≠tionproblem, and the emerging solu¬≠tion is anew world wide web¬†of elec¬≠tricity.‚ÄĚ (Color and emphasis in orig¬≠inal text)

The con¬≠cept of a¬†Net¬≠work of Things¬†was pre¬≠sented in ‚ÄúSmart Grid: The Imple¬≠men¬≠ta¬≠tion of Tech¬≠noc¬≠racy?‚ÄĚ As the tra¬≠di¬≠tional Internet con¬≠nects people (e.g., Face¬≠book, e-mail, videos, web sites), the Energy Web will con¬≠nect inan¬≠i¬≠mate objects like ther¬≠mostats, appli¬≠ances, meters, sta¬≠tion con¬≠trollers, data col¬≠lec¬≠tion and con¬≠trol com¬≠puter sys¬≠tems, etc. for the auto¬≠matic bal¬≠ancing of load con¬≠sump¬≠tion across the target power grid. Once com¬≠puter pro¬≠grams and algo¬≠rithms are in place, such a grid will operate autonomously with min¬≠imal human intervention.

Gen­esis of Global Smart Grid: R. Buck­min­ster Fuller

The GENI web¬≠site credits the late R. Buck¬≠min¬≠ster Fuller (1895‚ÄČ‚Äď‚ÄČ1983) as the con¬≠cep¬≠tual father and designer of the global energy net¬≠work. In his 1982 book,¬†Crit¬≠ical Path, Fuller wrote,

“This world elec­tric grid, with its omni-integrated advan­tage, will deliver its elec­tric energy any­where, to anyone, at any one time, at one common rate. This will make a world-around uni­form costing and pricing system for all goods and ser­vices based real­is­ti­cally on the time-energy meta­bolic accounting system of Universe.

‚ÄúIn this cos¬≠mi¬≠cally uni¬≠form, common energy-value system for all humanity, costing will be expressed in kilowatt-hours, watt-hours and watt-seconds of work. Kilowatt-hours will become the prime cri¬≠teria of costing the pro¬≠duc¬≠tion of the com¬≠plex of meta¬≠bolic involve¬≠ments per each func¬≠tion or item. These uni¬≠form energy val¬≠u¬≠a¬≠tions will replace all the world‚Äôs wildly inter-varying, opinion-gambled-upon, top-power-system-manipulatable mon¬≠e¬≠tary sys¬≠tems. The time-energy world accounting system will do away with all the inequities now occur¬≠ring in regard to the arbi¬≠trarily maneu¬≠ver¬≠able inter¬≠na¬≠tional ship¬≠ping of goods and top eco¬≠nomic power structure‚Äôs banker-invented, inter¬≠na¬≠tional balance-of-trade account¬≠ings. It will elim¬≠i¬≠nate all the tricky banking and securities-markets exploita¬≠tions of all the around-the-world-time-zone activ¬≠i¬≠ties dif¬≠fer¬≠ences in oper¬≠a¬≠tion today, all unbe¬≠knownst to the at-all-times two bil¬≠lion humans who are sleeping.‚ÄĚ

If this sounds familiar, it should: It is an unvar¬≠nished re-hash of 1930‚Ä≤s-style Tech¬≠noc¬≠racy, except on a global, versus con¬≠ti¬≠nental, scale. Elec¬≠tricity is deliv¬≠ered equally to all, and the the price-based eco¬≠nomic system is replaced by a ‚Äútime-energy world accounting system‚ÄĚ based on kilowatt-hours, watt-hours and watt-seconds.

There is no evi­dence that such a system will ever work, but that hasn’t stopped global groups from rushing head­long into this global ini­tia­tive. Take, for instance, the World Eco­nomic Forum…

World Eco­nomic Forum and Cli­mate Change

If a skeptic were to ques­tion the seri­ous­ness of orga­ni­za­tions like Ter­rawatts and GENI, they should con­sider that the elitist World Eco­nomic Forum (WEF) has thrown its col­lec­tive weight behind the ini­tia­tive. It has man­aged to link the advance­ment of Smart Grid to the reduc­tion of carbon emis­sions, thus promising a tan­gible way to fight global warming.

Founded in 1971, the WEF meets annu¬≠ally in Davos, Switzer¬≠land. Atten¬≠dees are mostly the ‚Äúwho‚Äôs who‚ÄĚ of the global elite.

The WEF pre­sented a major progress report in Jan­uary 2011 titled, “Energy Industry Part­ner­ship Pro­gramme“:

‚ÄúAccel¬≠er¬≠ating Suc¬≠cessful Smart Grid Pilots, a World Eco¬≠nomic Forum report devel¬≠oped with Accen¬≠ture and industry experts, sets out the cen¬≠trality of smart grids as¬†key enablers for a low-carbon economy¬†and in response to increas¬≠ingly growing energy demands. Over 60 industry, policy and reg¬≠u¬≠la¬≠tory stake¬≠holders were engaged in the Accel¬≠er¬≠ating Suc¬≠cessful Smart Grid Pilots report, to iden¬≠tify the fac¬≠tors that deter¬≠mine the suc¬≠cess, or oth¬≠er¬≠wise, of smart grid pilots‚Ķ There is an oppor¬≠tu¬≠nity to launch the next wave of devel¬≠op¬≠ment towards¬†a lower carbon energy system, and suc¬≠cessful smart grid pilots will be a key step in this process.‚ÄĚ [emphasis added]

Mark Spelman, Global Head of Strategy at Accen¬≠ture, par¬≠tic¬≠i¬≠pated in the WEF‚Äôs Smart Grid Work¬≠shop in 2010. When asked the ques¬≠tion, ‚ÄúWhat value can Smart Grid add in the next 30 years?‚ÄĚ, Spelman replied, ‚ÄúSmart Grids are absolutely fun¬≠da¬≠mental if we are going to achieve some of our cli¬≠mate change objec¬≠tives. Smart Grids are the glue, they are the energy internet of the future and they are the cen¬≠tral com¬≠po¬≠nent which is going to bring demand and supply together.‚Äú

Spelman may not call him­self a Tech­no­crat, but he cer­tainly uses the lan­guage of Tech­noc­racy like a pro.

The IEEE Stan­dards Association

The global energy net­work, or Smart Grid, will operate according to uni­ver­sally accepted engi­neering stan­dards that make data and energy flows com­pat­ible with each other. Who will supply such stan­dards? The ven­er­able Insti­tute of Elec­trical and Elec­tronics Engi­neers, or IEEE

‚Ä®

The IEEE claims that it is ‚Äúthe world‚Äôs largest pro¬≠fes¬≠sional asso¬≠ci¬≠a¬≠tion ded¬≠i¬≠cated to advancing tech¬≠no¬≠log¬≠ical inno¬≠va¬≠tion and excel¬≠lence for the ben¬≠efit of humanity.‚ÄĚ Founded in 1884, it has been involved with elec¬≠tricity stan¬≠dards and devel¬≠op¬≠ment since Thomas Edison invented the light bulb. Today, how¬≠ever, the IEEE is mas¬≠sively global, with 395,000 mem¬≠bers in 160 coun¬≠tries and it sup¬≠ports approx¬≠i¬≠mately 900 active stan¬≠dards in var¬≠ious fields of engi¬≠neering and electronics.

As it states on its Smart Grid web­site, the IEEE has staked its claim, in clear lan­guage, on the global energy initiative:

“There’s no global orga­ni­za­tion to oversee all nations’ energy sys­tems trans­for­ma­tions’ it is a vast move­ment and it’s in its infancy. With our 38 soci­eties and seven coun­cils IEEE is posi­tioned to lead the smart grid ini­tia­tive. Through them and our 395,000 mem­bers, who work in the world’s aca­d­emic, gov­ern­ment and pri­vate sec­tors, IEEE touches vir­tu­ally every aspect of the smart grid.

‚ÄúWe leverage our strong foun¬≠da¬≠tion and inclu¬≠sive col¬≠lab¬≠o¬≠ra¬≠tion to evolve stan¬≠dards, share best prac¬≠tices, pub¬≠lish devel¬≠op¬≠ments and pro¬≠vide related edu¬≠ca¬≠tional offer¬≠ings to fur¬≠ther the smart grid. We are at the fore¬≠front of advancing tech¬≠nology and facil¬≠i¬≠tating suc¬≠cessful deploy¬≠ments throughout the world. Working hand in hand with other leading orga¬≠ni¬≠za¬≠tions to create one set of¬†stan¬≠dards¬†for the smart grid is the way we can ensure suc¬≠cess.‚ÄĚ

IEEE’s bravado is not unwar­ranted: It truly is the only global orga­ni­za­tion capable of such a mon­u­mental task. When given the chal­lenge to unify the global energy net­work, 395,000 engi­neers should be enough to com­plete the mission!

The IEEE Stu¬≠dent Branch at Northern Illi¬≠nois Uni¬≠ver¬≠sity notes in theirAbout Page,¬†‚ÄúIEEE has man¬≠aged to bring tech¬≠nocrats from all over the world on a single plat¬≠form.‚Ä̬†Indeed.
