  • PLAN B 3.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization

    Experts were “stunned” this past summer by the loss of Arctic sea ice. An area almost twice the size of Britain disappeared in a single week.The Greenland ice cap is melting so fast that it is triggering minor earthquakes as pieces of ice weighing several billion tons break off the ice sheet and slide into the sea. The West Antarctic ...

  • Plan B 2.0: Rescuing a Planet Under Stress and a Civilization in Trouble

    Our global civilization today is on an economic path that is environmentally unsustainable, a path that is leading us toward economic decline and eventual collapse.Environmental scientists have been saying for some time that the global economy is being slowly undermined by environmental trends of human origin, including shrinking forests, ...

  • The Great Transition: Shifting from Fossil Fuels to Solar and Wind Energy

    The energy transition is here. As fossil fuel resources shrink, as air pollution worsens, and as concerns about climate instability cast a shadow over the future of coal, oil, and natural gas, a new world energy economy is emerging. The old economy, fueled largely by coal and oil, is being replaced with one powered by solar and wind ...

  • Submarine Power Cables

    The demand for high-performance submarine power cables is increasing as more and more offshore wind parks are installed, and the national electric grids are interconnected. Submarine power cables are installed for the highest voltages and power to transport electric energy under the sea between islands, countries and even continents. The ...
