Could XXXX be the year of planetary scientific awakening? Humanity has one last opportunity to slow down, mitigate, halt and eventually hopefully reverse the worst of Climate Change, but to do so it must stand united against further destruction, and, after half a century of wasted opportunities, we now must also launch much more proactive initiatives, rather than just concentrate on reducing and eliminating emissions. sadly the International Elite is working to timetables set by the great industries, the Giga-parasites!

Sustainable, Humane, Ethical Enterprise (SHEE) trading networks for change.

For every one of the global issues that besiege the planet there is a string of missed opportunities, dating back to the pre-war years.

  • Climate Change
  • Loss of Biodiversity
  • Loss of drinking water
  • Loss of arable soils
  • Loss of tree cover
  • Loss of grasslands and insect reservoirs



                                                                   10 of the World's Biggest Problems

These threaten all humanity, of all ages and generations, but in particular the young, who will grow up with the consequences of any past and present inaction. We should consider joining peaceful actions that can launch this process today

Move Our Money: ECO-Volution

That means changing our banking, savings, investments, pension funds and our purchasing to Earth-allied providers of every kind, using those same resources to fund Sustainable, Humane Ethical Enterprise (SHEE) alternatives, we can send a loud, global message to the world of banking and finance, breaking vicious circles and creating virtuous ones.

Certification: ECO-Volution

Seeking certification of Ethical operations, companies, institutes and individual businesses can lead to opportunities in financing our own supply chains and networks. We can turn to SHEE trade and commerce, supporting Indigenous Land Rights and freedoms, fair wage and owner-occupied farms, creating commonality of interests in SHEE trade, at the same time as providing our own needs in energy, housing, food, health and social care, to mention the most immediate, basic needs.

What are ethical business practices?
Business ethics is the study of appropriate business policies and practices regarding potentially controversial subjects including corporate governance, insider trading, bribery, discrimination, corporate social responsibility, and fiduciary responsibilities.

Communal Ownership

When peoples begin to buy their own, shared lands, for housing co-operatives, roofed with coo-operatively owned solar generation, flanked by community-owned wind and solar generation, endowed with hydrogen production, storage, transport and distribution, it becomes possible to supply members with these basics, at favourable rates, and offer outsiders the same, at premium rates, still more competitively than outside production, owing to the avoidance of transport/transmission costs.

Recommended: Electric Powered Autonomous Robo-Car For Shared Urban Mobility

What next?

Whether you are an organisation or an individual, a firm, co-operative, or whoever, we can all become part of the alternative to the catastrophe that otherwise faces us ALL!

  • Our common cause: ours, our children’s and grandchildren’s futures, and that of their descendants, for generations to come!
  • Our common ground: an end to the fear and uncertainty of Climate Change, replaced by action that actively reverses the elements that cause it, within an Ethical Framework.

ECO-Volution. How To Make The Dream A Reality?

Nature does not create great, monolithic organisms that span whole continents, it evolves myriads upon myriads of small aggregations of molecules, into aminoacids, and builds them into cells and tissues, organs, systems and organisms. Similarly, humanity began with small tribal communities, that created societies as complex and diverse as any found in Earth’s ecosystems.

Establishing a closed SHEE online market, as a pilot to evaluate the value, potential, operating costs and benefits, and possibly obtain letters of intent, by SHE entities that would consider joining at a notional range of cost and plans

In the UK, it would be possible to contract organisations like ‘Corporate Critic’, - Ethical Consumer Magazine’s sister Company, and the Ethical Investments Research Institute (EIRIS), to screen applicants for membership, at the applicant’s cost.

What Will A SHEE Trading Network Achieve?

One aim of such a closed market is to shift money invested in unethical, unsustainable, parasitic trade to SHEE enterprise, funding their expansion, innovation and improvement, while defunding dirty, old tech. For every £, € or $ moving from mainstream economics and finance to finance solar, wind, sustainable hydro and preferably local, co-operative or collective, a SHEE can bring together interested Parties and finance.

Creating such a Market provides customers with a secure shopping virtual high street, for both, physical and virtual outlets and gives producers and manufacturers a loyal, virtual, ethical market.

This could help develop a new form of collective enterprise, better adapted to local circumstances, sensitive to demand, creative in its relationship-building within the strict confines of a set of SHEE standards. e.g.

  • Food producers and farmers (local and global)
  • Maritime Transport
  • Warehousing/Climate controlled storage
  • Road Haulage
  • Delivery networks
  • Collection points

These are just a few of the areas that could benefit from immediate development and return real environmental benefits.

Pilot stage: Knit two separate demonstrations hubs:

Shopping Hubs

Membership buyers’ co-operatives could operate via existing retail points, local to buyers, convenient if they should prefer collection, or able to arrange local delivery. This reduces the number of drops for the Wholesaler/delivery service, giving the retailer the opportunity of offering a value-added service, to pick and pack orders for their own customers. This will ensure that the emergent Network does not compete but, on the contrary, supports SHEE enterprises.

Why the sharing economy is good?
It reduces barriers; users have a greater choice of reasonably priced, high-quality products and services which may have been previously out of reach. The sharing economy helps people earn money by selling or renting underutilized goods or resources.

Innovation Hubs

Aiming to help stimulate innovative and collaborative projects, prototype builds, research and the like, such virtual spaces could create new SHEEs to eventually join the mainstream markets and jobs. The role of Innovation hubs would therefore be to fund R&D, finding industry Partners and launching pilots through mass Crowdfunding.

Innovative R&D for community development to Green Tech: two examples.

How big is the sharing economy?
The sharing economy is projected to grow from $15 billion in 2014 to $335 billion in 2025. Quicker than ever, we're shifting to the world of a shared economy. A shared or sharing economy is an economic system in which assets or services are shared between peers or businesses for free or for a fee.

Carbon To Electric Replacement Kits (C2ER)


Rather than try to convince billions of vehicle owners to buy a new car and scrap their old, IC engine vehicle - with huge carbon emissions for the whole manufacturing process - it is easier to persuade and subsidise them to replace their vehicles’ internal combustion engines. Installing an electric motors offer the option of either Lithium battery or, better still, Hydrogen Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells, (PEMFCs). The technology is now ripe for mass marketing, and developing these to be manufactured under licensing agreements, globally, rather than embodying carbon-emissions in their production by manufacturing in just a few locations and shipping around the world. (see appendix for links about the state of the technology today).

Community Hydrogen Projects.


As discussed above, Proton Exchange Membrane Electrolytic Cells (PEMECs) are already available on the market and converting pure water into Hydrogen fuel (and, if required, oxygen, for medical and industrial uses), could therefore offer excellent community investment opportunities. 

By co-funding wind and solar generation plant to produce and sell Hydrogen fuel to crowdfunding members, at a discount, and to the wider public, at full price, can build local capacity to power whole villages and districts.
