3. What is the technology that supports or enables each of the above systems to exist?

A: Energy, specifically _________ ________(C).

4. How do we supply electricity today?

A: ___ _______(D), generated from either renewable or non-renewable energy sources. In the developed world, supply is abundant, but energy sources are 80% from ____, ____, _____ ____ ________(E) -- causing the majority of global pollution. 2 billion people, one-third of humanity have no electrical energy. Unfortunately, the growing economies of _____, _______ ____ __________ _____(F) are following the same energy strategy as the wealthy nations.

5. How do we provide sufficient electricity for everyone in an ecologically sustainable way?

A: First, understand that there is ___ ________ ________(G). The renewable energies (________, _________, ________, __________, _________, ___ ________(H)) are abundant far beyond our needs -- and several are now cost competitive. So, tap renewable resources in remote sites (where they are usually found), and move the power via ____-________ ________________ _______(I), which now can reach 7000 kilometers, connecting nations and continents.

6. What would be the benefits of doing this?

  • Increased trade, cooperation and ________(J) between neighboring nations.

  • Reduced __________ _____ _________ __________(K) from fossil and nuclear power generation.

  • Reduced ___________ _____ ____________(L) as 2 billion people will have an electrical infrastructure necessary for adequate food, water, health care and education.

  • Stabilized ____________(M) as birth rates fall when energy use increases in a society.

Answer to Question #1:

The ______________ _________________ ___ _________ ___________(N) between countries and continents, with an emphasis on tapping __________ __________ ___________(O) resources.

A World Wide Web of Electricity tapping clean energy resources.

The World Game's highest priority objective

(Critical Path by Bucky Fuller)

The problems of humanity threaten each of us -- yet our ignorance makes us believe that somehow we can remain immune. That just isn't so. The critical issues we face; poverty, pollution, population growth and proliferation of nuclear weapons, have time frames much longer than any political term of office. These problems are interconnected, which suggests that the solutions will also be interconnected. We need more comprehensive thinking and long-range global planning. I invite you to investigate The GENI Initiative as I have. It offers hope for all humanity.

I support with enthusiasm your initiative. While directing the Foreign Affairs of Egypt, between 1977-1991, I have advocated the integration of the electricity grids of all the African countries of the Nile River using the Nile as the infrastructure of this project. I believe, as you do, that electricity must be at the service of peace and international co-operation.
