How do we make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological damage or disadvantage to anyone?

This research identified a premier global strategy a global electric energy grid tapping abundant renewable energy resources.

What are the reasons that make this important for GENI?

Upon implementation, this initiative provides clean electricity to all people around the world, and the benefits include:
