The world is running out of useable energy in the form of oil and natural gas, the supplies of which are rapidly dwindling, in the form of coal which pollutes the air we breathe leading toward a runaway greenhouse effect and nuclear fission, the by product of which will remain a horrific threat for more than 100,000 years.
Solar energy is vastly too inefficient with current technologies, as are wind farms, which depend completely on the capricious nature of weather.
But the solution is at hand in the world’s three great ocean currents-the Gulf Stream along the U.S. East Coast all the way to Europe, the Humboldt along the west coasts of South and North America and the Agulhas along the African continent.
A multi-trillion dollar, multi-national World Energy Needs (WEN) project is the result of a series of papers five years ago by Dr. Evelyn (Eve) Larsen in which she proposed placing giant water turbines in the three ocean currents, bringing the power they generate ashore on underwater cables and plugging them into the present day electrical grids, which would have to be greatly expanded as the project developed.
Two problems: The first are the powerful oil factions who want to put a stop to WEN for the simple reason they stand to loose trillions in revenues. They’ll do literally anything to stop the massive project. And most governments, especially the U.S. would be all but powerless to do anything about it. Without oil during the long transition period we would have trouble surviving.
The second is the new al-Quaeda that is at war with the world. The Islamic fundamentalists want to topple the present Saudi royal family, kick all foreigners out of the country and keep the oil revenues for the on-going jihad.
These groups are not above sabotage and murder. Their name for WEN is The God Project with Dr. Larsen the high priestess, because it tampers with God’s design for us. They maintain that within 100 years the earth will go into an ice age that may be deeper and colder than anything ever experienced. All life on the planet would be in mortal danger.
