"The National Renewable Energy Laboratory states that the potential of land-based resources (wind farms installed on land as opposed to the open ocean) alone could provide America with its electricity needs 10 times over.

A 2009 Harvard study found that a network of turbines operating at even a modest 20 percent of capacity could supply more than 40 times the worldwide demand for electricity. If this study, and others like it, are even in the ballpark, then continuing the exploration of wind as an alternative to fossil fuels is a no-brainer."

Recorded at an international UN workshop "Climate Change Mitigation with local communities and Indigenous Peoples: Practices, Lessons Learned and Prospects" convened in Cairns, Australia (26-28 March 2012).

Bottom line, if a community has a vision of creating all of it's energy within 5 years from a LOCAL zero carbon source, such as wind, water, hydrogen or solar, it can achieve this goal. Not only will this create local jobs, it will also create a sustainable future for seven future generations of our children. There are examples of these communities around the world. The important thing is that the LOCAL community benefits. 


"Saul Vicente Vasquez of the International Indian Treaty Council ~ "The problem is that these renewable energy resources are not being shared with the indigenous communities. They are not part of the process and the resources located in their territories are just used with no sharing of benefits." In countries such as the Philippines and Malaysia numerous Indigenous communities have also been displaced by the expansion of biofuel plantations, and villages are fighting to secure sustainable forest and climate-friendly futures.
