I see a lot of discussion about the use of fossil fuel energy. Unfortunately, the dialogue is mostly black and white. There are those for and those against. Of those opposing fossil fuels, most reply that we should invest in renewable sources of energy. It sounds like a good idea, but I have yet to hear of a plan that could actually make this happen. That got me thinking, and I have come up with my own idea on how to convert the world’s energy production to renewable resources. (Hint - No democracy can pull it off.)
1) Become a shareholder of an energy company.
2) Find a visionary leader who (a) has a workable plan to transition the company to using 100% renewable resources, (b) is willing to become CEO, and (c) has an executive team that supports his/her vision.
3) Lobby the other shareholders en masse to elect a board of directors that support this CEO’s vision.
4) Do this simultaneously with ALL other major energy companies to create a level playing field and avoid the competition that would otherwise render this move impossible.
Now, seeing as this will never happen, the system will remain in place until it breaks. Unfortunately, that may translate to partial or complete environmental collapse.
