The central goal of ICE-PAC,
on a planetary scale, is reduction of pollution of the atmosphere through
the development of Integrated Clean Energy economies. There is a spectrum
of environmental reasons why this is necessary, ranging from climate
change to peace.
The ICE-PAC initiative will
accomplish this goal by:
assisting renewable energy
manufacturers achieve an economy of scale for renewable power by encouraging
the subsidized transition of every island nation and territory in
the Pacific ocean to Integrated Clean Energy economies.
Clean Energy economies that can be built quickly, cheaply, and assembled
by people with only a moderate level of special training.
using the island nations
as examples of clean development that industrial nations can emulate.
promoting the clean development
mechanism in developing areas in exchange for carbon credits under
the Kyoto protocol.
Clean Energy economies on the Internet and in tourism advertising,
video and movie productions, and in the international forums - especially
in the United Nations and relevant meetings on the issues of atmospheric
and ocean pollution by fossil fuels.
The central goal in the Pacific
islands is poverty alleviation by;
freeing the nations from
the huge foreign debt incurred by importation of petroleum fuels;
providing totally subsidized
power for lights, tools, electrical appliances, cooking, and other
basic needs for sustainable development;
providing jobs for local
people in capital cities and on rural islands;
providing a sense of
hope by giving the people the most advanced technology we are capable
maintaining a sensitivity
to the culture of the people in the design and presentation of the
equipment, buildings, and other hardware and in the management training
and operation of local energy supply companies.
encouraging the assembly
and export of renewable energy modules (or components of these) in
some Pacific islands as an export industry.
TheIntegrated Clean Energy
initiative will also assist in protecting the local environment of the
islands of the Pacific islands by;
curtailing the use of
petroleum products and thus avoiding petroleum spills, accumulation
of waste oil, elimination of exhaust fumes;
elimination of power
plant effluents that currently damage mangroves and nearshore marine
removal of the need to
use wood products for cooking and heating water;
careful landscaping design
associated with installations;
demonstrating by the technological
and financial success that being green generates money.
