us to resolve conflicts in a non-violent way.

I like your concept and could imagine
its importance for Republic Island (cheap electricity)

The more reasons that exist for people
and nations to benefit from shared resources, shared
development and shared planning, the greater the scope
for reduction in the confrontation mode of behaviour
which exists too widely, and its replacement with
consensus seeking which exists too rarely.

Vicente Fox, Governor of the State of Guanajuato,
Keep up your good work. We must not
allow nuclear energy to become the energy of choice
for developing (or developed) countries.

Please accept my support for your
initiative of a Global Energy Network.

Sometimes what seems like an impossible
problem or set of problems can be solved by a simple,
obvious solution; and everyone says: "Why didn't I
think of that?" I believe GENI's initiative to interconnect
renewable energy resources around the world might
be the most important step towards creating a cooperative
Steve Donovan, Trustee, State of the World Forum
These areas deserve top priority
around the world and I support the GENI Initiative

Energy is now wasted. New technology
and available energy can, for the first time in the
history of the world, provide opportunity and challenge
to everyone, my definition of utopia; so if we can
put the lives of people before politics, than the
GENI approach of shared energy is viable and necessary.
Martin Alpert, President of Universal Empowering
GENI is a very interesting and attractive
idea....Certainly this kind of binding links between
peoples and states will have a great stabilizing effect
on international stage.

The peace process in the Middle East
is moving forward and it is on the right track. The
process of linking power among states in the region
is going to have a tremendous economic impact on the
economies of the concerned countries. Your contributions
in the education and research areas is highly viewed
and I wish you all the success in that direction.
Bader A. Al-Rushaid Al-Bader Chairman and Managing
Director. Kuwait Investment Company
have studied your proposals to utilize renewable energy
in a more socially equitable and ecologically responsible
fashion than the current mannor in which energy is
utilized. I believe firmly that economic initiatives
that promote cooperation rather than unmitigated competition
amongst states is one of the fastest routes to addressing
the urgent need to create an atmosphere of cooperation
to deal with the global threats to human security
the world faces today.
Reliance on depletable energy resources and energy
systems that produce excessively toxic waste products
is irresponsible and yet there seem to be so few alternatives
discussed in public dialogue. For that reason, GENI
is an important alternative.
Jonathon G. Granoff, Chairman of Lawyers Alliance
for World Security
We need to connect people at every
level, and we need to do it with all our hearts, and
every fibre of our will. Your project is a wonderful
example of this understanding and approach.
Susan Collin Marks, Vice President, Search

I support the ongoing education and
research by GENI towards connecting inter-regional
and international electric energy networks, emphasizing
the use of local and remote renewable energy resources.
I heartily endorse the benefits that are demonstrated
in similar projects around the world:
- universal inrease in living standards
- reduction in atmospheric pollution
- reduction in hunger and poverty
- enhancement of world trade
- promotion of cooperation and peace
