Log On to the Energy Internet

November 10, 2011

Jeremy Rifkin, renowned economist and president of the Foundation on Economic Trends, believes that saving not just our own species, but all life in Earth’s biosphere community from extinction, now depends on our ability to transition into a Third Industrial Revolution and post carbon era. In other words, the oil era is ending and that means human civilization is going to have to rapidly transition into a new energy regime or face collapse. To do this, we need to use the power of communications technologies like an internet to support a democratic system of sustainable energy generation and distribution.

“The critical task at hand is to harness the public capital, the market capital and especially the social capital of the human race to the mission of transitioning the world to a Third Industrial Revolution economy and post-carbon era. A transformation of this scale will require a concomitant leap to biosphere consciousness. Only if we begin to think as an extended global family that not only includes our own species but also all of our fellow travelers in the evolutionary sojourn on Earth will we be able to save our common biosphere community and renew the planet for future generations. “

“Will Green Music Strike a Chord With Performers?

A lot of resources are consumed in the name of a good day of music. But Prescher  [Nadia Prescher, one of the managers for the String Cheese Incident] believes the number of musicians interested is growing even if you don’t see it. ‘So many artists that aren’t out about it, don’t necessarily go after press for it, but they’re just doing it. There’s a very long list,’ said Prescher.

In the case of Reverb, the organization has an especially close tie to the music industry — Sullivan’s husband Adam Gardner is the guitarist for the band Guster. Sullivan said they saw how ‘powerful it was to be connected to the musical realm.’”
