United Nations Millennium Summit:
Sept. 6 - 8, 2000
Leaders take a stand for a better
Dear GENI Friend,
Very heady company 190 world leaders convening
at the United Nations to chart a collective course
for the 21st century. In public speeches at the General
Assembly, private bi-lateral meetings and open roundtables,
they all seemed aware that the problems of the
world are bigger than the borders of any single nation.
the Peoples report.)
We had invested in this global gathering by mailing
to every President, Prime Minister, Ambassador and
two months beforehand. Several
Ministries even responded with high praise for the
GENI Initiative. But I heard no specific mention
of the project during the summit.
The highlight for us was the press conference with
Russian President Vladimir Putin, attended by 200
world media. We asked the following:
Q: Mr. President, regarding the Russian
Far East and the rapprochement between North and
South Korea: The Siberian Energy Institute has
two directors, Lev Belyaev and Nikolai Voropai,
who have worked for several years to integrate
the electrical grids of Russia, China, Japan and
North and South Korea very much like the
Baltic Ring Loop now being developed. The energy
integration would benefit the economies and prospects
for peace on the Korean Peninsula. North Korea
would seem to have the most gain, yet remains
the biggest hurdle. President Putin, Russia leads
the world in long distance high-voltage transmission
technology, and you could be a peacemaker here.
Do you know of this plan? And can you comment?
While I was not able to write his entire answer,
he best summarized his ideas with the quote:
Economic projects are often
a very good basis to resolve political issues.
We have recently re-focussed on the electrical interconnection
of the Korean Peninsula. Our two interns from Korea
our essential material into their language, which
we mailed to all the key policy-makers in the region.
This is how we invest your contributions
and I hope to report a breakthrough to you
In partnership for the planet,
