The Agenda 21 End Game – A 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
The dark horse of the¬†New¬†World Order is not Com¬≠mu¬≠nism, Socialism or Fas¬≠cism: 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‚ÄĚ¬†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.
Pro¬≠po¬≠nents of Smart Grid¬†claim¬†that it will empower the con¬≠sumer to better manage his or her power con¬≠sump¬≠tion and hence, costs. The utility com¬≠pa¬≠nies will there¬≠fore be more effi¬≠cient in bal¬≠ancing power loads and require¬≠ments across diverse markets.
How¬≠ever, like car¬≠nival barkers, these Smart Grid hock¬≠sters never reveal where or how Smart¬≠Grid came into being, nor what the ulti¬≠mate endgame aims to achieve; per¬≠haps most of them have no idea either, but simply repeat the mantra as if they know what they are talking about.
In¬†Smart¬≠Grid: The Imple¬≠men¬≠ta¬≠tion of Tech¬≠noc¬≠racy?, I revealed the back¬≠ground of both Tech¬≠noc¬≠racy and Smart Grid, and most impor¬≠tantly, the links between them. Smart Grid is born out of Tech¬≠noc¬≠racy and not the other way around.
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
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.
Specif¬≠i¬≠cally, Hub¬≠bert detailed the require¬≠ments for a suc¬≠cessful imple¬≠men¬≠ta¬≠tion of Technocracy:
- ‚ÄúReg¬≠ister on a con¬≠tin¬≠uous 24 hour-per-day basis the total net con¬≠ver¬≠sion of energy.
- ‚ÄúBy means of the reg¬≠is¬≠tra¬≠tion of energy con¬≠verted and con¬≠sumed, make pos¬≠sible a bal¬≠anced load.
- ‚ÄúPro¬≠vide a con¬≠tin¬≠uous inven¬≠tory of all pro¬≠duc¬≠tion and consumption
- ‚ÄúPro¬≠vide a spe¬≠cific reg¬≠is¬≠tra¬≠tion of the type, kind, etc., of all goods and ser¬≠vices, where pro¬≠duced and where used
- ‚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 tech¬≠nology to ful¬≠fill these require¬≠ments did not exist in 1932. How¬≠ever, it is worth noting that Tech¬≠noc¬≠racy Inc.‚Äôs lead¬≠er¬≠ship was inti¬≠mately familiar with the early work of Inter¬≠na¬≠tional Busi¬≠ness Machine‚Äôs (IBM) com¬≠puting tech¬≠nology. They clearly envi¬≠sioned a time in the future where the advance¬≠ment of the tech¬≠nology would meet the min¬≠imum level nec¬≠es¬≠sary to imple¬≠ment these requirements.
That day of advanced tech¬≠nology has come and the project is now calledSmart Grid. The endgame is to imple¬≠ment a mod¬≠ern¬≠ized ver¬≠sion of his¬≠toric Tech¬≠noc¬≠racy on a national, con¬≠ti¬≠nental and global basis.
It is strongly rec¬≠om¬≠mended that the reader care¬≠fully review¬†Smart¬≠Grid: The Imple¬≠men¬≠ta¬≠tion of Tech¬≠noc¬≠racy¬†andCarbon Cur¬≠rency: A New Begin¬≠ning for Tech¬≠noc¬≠racy?¬†to gain a solid per¬≠spec¬≠tive on the his¬≠tor¬≠ical aspect of Technocracy.
Some would argue that it is mere coin¬≠ci¬≠dence that these require¬≠ments are fully met with Smart Grid tech¬≠nology. How¬≠ever, the rea¬≠sons for the exis¬≠tence of Tech¬≠noc¬≠racy in the 1930‚Ä≤s are the same rea¬≠sons given today: Energy effi¬≠ciency, load bal¬≠ancing, fair¬≠ness, alle¬≠vi¬≠ating poverty and hunger, etc.
The feigned con¬≠cern for those in poverty and hunger in the under¬≠de¬≠vel¬≠oped nations is hollow. Tech¬≠noc¬≠racy is point¬≠edly amoral in its prac¬≠tice: The means (their sci¬≠en¬≠tific method/process) jus¬≠ti¬≠fies the end, what¬≠ever the end might turn out to be.
In addi¬≠tion to the United States, Smart Grid is being imple¬≠mented in both Canada and Mexico. Plan¬≠ners are working on stan¬≠dards that will inte¬≠grate all of North America into a single, uni¬≠fied Smart Grid system.
More¬≠over, there is a serious ini¬≠tia¬≠tive underway to create a¬†Global¬†Smart Grid that will inte¬≠grate all the con¬≠ti¬≠nents 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 gath¬≠ering momentum and is endorsed by the Dalai Lama, Arch¬≠bishop Desmond Tutu, Sen. James Jef¬≠fords (I-VT) and Noel Brown (North Amer¬≠ican Director, United Nations Envi¬≠ron¬≠mental Pro¬≠gram), the United Nations and by the gov¬≠ern¬≠ments of Canada New Zealand, Switzer¬≠land, and China, among others.
The nature of the global grid is revealed on the Ter¬≠rawatts website:
‚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.
‚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.
Gen¬≠esis of Global Smart Grid: R. Buck¬≠min¬≠ster 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,
‚ÄúThis world elec¬≠tric grid, with its omni-integrated advan¬≠tage, will deliver its elec¬≠tric energy any¬≠where, to anyone, at any one time, at one common rate. This will make a world-around uni¬≠form costing and pricing system for all goods and ser¬≠vices based real¬≠is¬≠ti¬≠cally on the time-energy meta¬≠bolic 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 evi¬≠dence that such a system will ever work, but that hasn‚Äôt stopped global groups from rushing head¬≠long into this global ini¬≠tia¬≠tive. Take, for instance, the World Eco¬≠nomic Forum‚Ä¶
World Eco¬≠nomic Forum and Cli¬≠mate Change
If a skeptic were to ques¬≠tion the seri¬≠ous¬≠ness of orga¬≠ni¬≠za¬≠tions like Ter¬≠rawatts and GENI, they should con¬≠sider that the elitist World Eco¬≠nomic Forum (WEF) has thrown its col¬≠lec¬≠tive weight behind the ini¬≠tia¬≠tive. It has man¬≠aged to link the advance¬≠ment of Smart Grid to the reduc¬≠tion of carbon emis¬≠sions, thus promising a tan¬≠gible 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 pre¬≠sented a major progress report in Jan¬≠uary 2011 titled, ‚ÄúEnergy Industry Part¬≠ner¬≠ship Pro¬≠gramme‚Äú:
‚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‚Ä¶ 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 him¬≠self a Tech¬≠no¬≠crat, but he cer¬≠tainly uses the lan¬≠guage of Tech¬≠noc¬≠racy like a pro.
The IEEE Stan¬≠dards Association
The global energy net¬≠work, or Smart Grid, will operate according to uni¬≠ver¬≠sally accepted engi¬≠neering stan¬≠dards that make data and energy flows com¬≠pat¬≠ible with each other. Who will supply such stan¬≠dards? The ven¬≠er¬≠able Insti¬≠tute of Elec¬≠trical and Elec¬≠tronics Engi¬≠neers, or IEEE
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 web¬≠site, the IEEE has staked its claim, in clear lan¬≠guage, on the global energy initiative:
‚ÄúThere‚Äôs no global orga¬≠ni¬≠za¬≠tion to oversee all nations‚Äô energy sys¬≠tems trans¬≠for¬≠ma¬≠tions‚Äô it is a vast move¬≠ment and it‚Äôs in its infancy. With our 38 soci¬≠eties and seven coun¬≠cils¬†IEEE¬†is posi¬≠tioned to lead the smart grid ini¬≠tia¬≠tive. Through them and our 395,000 mem¬≠bers, who work in the world‚Äôs aca¬≠d¬≠emic, gov¬≠ern¬≠ment and pri¬≠vate sec¬≠tors, IEEE touches vir¬≠tu¬≠ally 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‚Äôs bravado is not unwar¬≠ranted: It truly is the¬†only¬†global orga¬≠ni¬≠za¬≠tion capable of such a mon¬≠u¬≠mental task. When given the chal¬≠lenge to unify the global energy net¬≠work, 395,000 engi¬≠neers should be enough to com¬≠plete 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.‚ÄĚ¬†Indeed.
