Voici la question qui me guide dans mes recherches...

L’appât du gain manifesté par les entreprises supranationales et certains groupes oligarchiques, de même que le contrôle des ressources naturelles par ceux-ci, dirigent l’humanité vers un nouvel ordre mondial de type féodal, voir même sa perte. Confronté à cette situation, l’être humain est invité à refuser d’accepter d’emblée une pseudo-vérité véhiculée par des médias peut-être à la solde de ces entreprises et groupes. Au contraire, il est invité à s’engager dans un processus de discernement et conscientisation afin de créer sa propre vérité par la confrontation de sa réalité nécessairement subjective à des données objectives, telles que révélées par la science, par exemple.

Good news for 2013 and the future of humanity.

There's a lot of good news for 2013... First, we did not see the end of the world in 2012 ;-) but there are lots of new scenarios for end of the world 20xx! We like so much to be scared, that's part of human nature I guess.

Then we just saw the world stopped warming for the past decade or more (around 16 years). This is quite easy to view for yourself... just use this web site and play around with the data sets.  Here's one example. You can click on the image below and start from there.

This means my daughter of 17, lived in a world that saw statistically no warming.  This is in sharp contrast with all the gloom and doom scenarios that we hear on the news and papers almost everyday.  You see in blue above that the CO2 is still going up, while for the past 16 we see flat trend on global temperature.

You have to remember the theory of climate change... Here's a quick reminder from wikipedia:
Of most concern in these anthropogenic factors is the increase in CO2 levels due to emissions from fossil fuel combustion
So we hear daily from different groups and media that we need to cut CO2, make sacrifice etc... But, what's happening with the temperature at a standstill while we put more and more dangerous level of CO2 in the atmosphere?  I thought the science was settled? Maybe not. But if this topic interest you, here's a start.

On the more urgent problem side than this is:
  • Poverty and starvation
  • The fact that around 1.3 billions people does not have electricity
  • Desertification
  • Problems related with fossil fuels, aside from CO2
    • Real pollution
    • Resources wars
To resolve those issues I want to propose some more good news.

On the Climate change and desertification side:

Allan Savory: How to green the desert and reverse climate change

Matt Ridley on How Fossil Fuels are Greening the Planet

On the energy side of things... We need to stop burning fossil fuels; Oil, Coal and Gas to produce electricity. This can be done more efficiently with the new Gen 3+ nuclear power stations that we are starting to see installed all over the world and way more safe that we have seen in the first generations of power plants.

There's a lot of new development on the nuclear side of the energy production, here some example.

Thorium Energy

Detailed presentation...

You also have promises like the following, that if come true, would remove the needs of all power generation we now use, including fission of Uranium or Thorium.

Lockheed's Skunk Works promises fusion power in four years

So you can see that the future is bright... we now only need bright decision makers to make a difference.

We definitely need to stop investing in low density and unreliable source of power that in the end, only result in more Coal and Gas... here a good talk on this:
