Support Is Needed, Not Denial and Suppression

Support Is Needed—
Not Denial and Suppression

Are you ready to let go of the past and join the dedicated evolutionary energy team? Are you ready to become a hero who might risk wealth and reputation? The choice is yours. And make no mistake, you will choose either by your action or inaction. This is your moment of choice.

I am happy to see Mongolia and other nations committing to socially and environmentally sustainable programs like the Exemplar Zero Initiative. The true purpose of governments should be to protect and enhance the lives of their people and ecosystems, to support buen vivir (good living) for generations to come.

The global economic and political landscape is shifting rapidly into a more multipolar world as the one remaining superpower, the United States, declines under its own economic weight and its overextended military hegemony.

There is good news and bad news about this development. On the one hand, nations, regions, and municipalities now have the -opportunity to become more independent from international corporate and governmental pressures through sustainable innovation. On the other hand, the temptation to allow multinational corporations to exploit nonrenewable resources for export becomes ever greater as developing countries seek short-term economic gain so they can service debts and enhance infrastructure and social programs.

This approach is a losing proposition in the long run. What happens when our resources and ecosystems are depleted in the wake of such shortsighted thinking? Unfortunately, most corporations and governments measure their performance based on quarterly profits and the terms of elective political office and not on long-term time horizons like the Native Americans’ planning seven generations ahead.

A prime example of this dynamic is Ecuador, where I live.

Ecuador: Oil Exploration and Devastating Toxic Waste Residues

The story of Ecuador is the familiar story of numerous countries that have depended on the temporary export of oil, gas, minerals, and lumber to sustain their economies. Chevron-Texaco is responsible for leaving behind massive and devastating amounts of toxic waste in the Ecuadorian Amazon, resulting in what is the largest environmental lawsuit in world history, with claims of $27 billion in damages for the diseases and wrongful deaths of thousands of people living in the area.

The threat to the environment posed by imminent oil drilling in the western Amazon region is extremely serious and widespread, with over one hundred leased “oil blocks” embracing much of the rain forests of Ecuador, Peru, Colombia, Brazil, and Bolivia.

To its credit, the government of Ecuador proposed keeping the oil in the ground in one oil block in the biodiverse rain forest of Yasuni National Park if the international community were to match funds to cover potential lost revenues. That’s a good start, but it isn’t enough. Eighty percent of the Ecuadorian and Peruvian Amazon is earmarked for oil and gas drilling, with associated road building and deforestation.

Currently, one-third of Ecuador’s total revenues come from petroleum exports. Some of us are proposing that these revenues be replaced by income from new energy technologies, sustainable agriculture, medicinal herbs from the rain forest, innovative water treatment, ecotourism, health tourism, and the acquisition of conservation land trusts through carbon credits and gifts.

We firmly believe that an open acceptance of innovation has the potential to generate sufficient income so that Ecuador can leave the rain forest and its indigenous peoples alone while creating economic sovereignty for itself. We propose that innovation sanctuaries be established, protected by the government, to allow researchers and entrepreneurs to do the necessary R and D on their technologies, the most promising of which would be implemented.

Cocreating From An Altruistic Perspective

The biggest global challenge we face is to cocreate from an altruistic perspective those social, political, and economic systems to foster the needed systemic changes in our governments and corporations. So far, we’ve been falling way short of the mark in all respects.

But we’re going to need resources to begin the task.

This is an invitation to those of you who feel the call to redirect your abundant resources accumulated from an oil economy to alternative energy and other solutions that are truly clean and sustainable, to put your petrodollars to work, and to make your great-grandchildren proud of you. As Nelson Mandela said: “Sometimes it falls upon a generation to be great.”

Ours is the generation that must  be great.

An Evolution Of Consciousness

Make no mistake: we’re in the midst of an evolution of consciousness. We can cocreate a planet that works for everyone. We can redirect success from profit and pollution to true sustainability. We can reactivate an Eden in which our new fertile crescents and restored ecosystems grow and grow while we give back to the Earth rather than take from it.

Technology can provide elegant answers to our desperate quandary, but the Taker culture has effectively blocked these solutions because of the greed of the few and the ignorance of the many, and so we find ourselves on a sinking ship. We’ve been denying the best possibilities because of economic self-interest, the fear of the unknown, and a fundamental reluctance to embrace bold new possibilities that await us if only we have a closer look.

Will we collectively shift the paradigm by introducing clean breakthrough energy, pure and abundant water, and the best quality of life for all of us? It’s up to each of you to choose to do so fearlessly with love and compassion for all creation. You are the answer to the question. You are the points of conscious evolution.

I’d like to leave you with a quotation from what you can gather is one of my true heroes, Buckminster Fuller:

“If the success or failure of this planet, and of human beings, depended on how I am and what I do, how would I be? What would I do?”
