The Club of Rome, Munich Re, Siemens, RWE, and Deutsche Bank plan massive solar power project
Tuesday, June 30, 2009
When powerful international corporations, banks, and influential think-tanks align, it usually means something major is about to be undertaken. In this “project”, the Club of Rome (a notorious European group of elitists), Munich Re, Siemens, RWE, and Deutsche Bank, along with a consortium of 20 other companies plan to build a $555.3 billion solar power project in northern Africa intended to supply energy to Germany.
According to Club of Rome’s website, “Munich RE and the German Association of the Club of Rome have jointly invited interested investors, operators and companies from the financial sector in order to start an industrial initiative to set up a roadmap for the implementation of the DESERTEC concept, a power generation project for solar thermal power from the African deserts for Europe.” All parties attached to this project fail to include any documentation or specifics as to whether or not any of the African nations involved will receive any benefits.
DESERTEC was initiated by the German Association of the Club of Rome together with scientists associated with the Club of Rome.
The Club of Rome has maintained a low-profile for the past three decades stemming from a distasteful report they released in 1972 entitled “The Limits to Growth” in which they promote the eugenicists agenda of depopulation or, population reduction. In 1993, it published a follow-up called The First Global Revolution. According to this book, “It would seem that humans need a common motivation, namely a common adversary, to organize and act together in the vacuum; such a motivation must be found to bring the divided nations together to face an outside enemy, either a real one or else one invented for the purpose….The common enemy of humanity is man….Democracy is no longer well suited for the tasks ahead” and “In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine etc., would fit the bill.”
Perhaps one of the more visible follies of the elite is their tendency to boast of their harmful intent to society. As Caroll Quigley did in his book Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time, or in his book The Anglo-American Establishment: From Rhodes to Cliveden, people connected to the establishment write books or policy reports (open to the public eye) that lay their plans out in detail. Groups that dictate foreign policy see the globe with a slightly different perspective than your average humble citizen. In his book, The Grand Chessboard, Zbigniew Brzezinski depicts a world that is essentially a board game, rather than a world of sovereign nation-states trying to live in peace.
With our planet rapidly moving into global governance under the United Nation and other various international banking cartels, it makes projects that span over assorted regions much easier to formulate. This is evident from Club of Rome’s website that states, “Max Schön, President of the German Club of Rome and member of the Advisory Board of the DESERTEC Foundation underlines: “DESERTEC is a concept developed by scientists, politicians and economists around the Mediterranean Sea (EUMENA). It has the potential to slow down or even to stop climate change and to make a big contribution to bring back balance to our world.” Regional government is the last step in the globalist’s agenda through what Daniel Estulin calls “systemic methodology.” The European Union, the Asian Union, the African Union, and the North American Union are needed by the establishment to achieve their vision of a total control grid, each of which are governed by a small faction of banking oligarchs.
On the DESERTEC Foundation’s website, there is a FAQ page that attempts to smooth over questions as to whether or not there may be potential problems with such a large scale energy project. One question brings attention to the possibility of harmful radiation to those close to energy transportation lines. It says, “Wouldn’t HVDC transmission lines impair the landscape and emit harmful electromagnetic radiation?” The foundation answers this question with the following: “With “HVDC Light” technology as from ABB, over distances above about 500 to 600 km, underground power cables only cost about 10% to 20% more than overhead power lines. Unlike HVAC, HVDC grids do not emit any electromagnetic radiation which is of importance…”
ABB describes themselves on their website as “a global leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customers to improve their performance while lowering environmental impact.” However, nowhere on the site do they admit that in January of 2000, they delivered equipment and services to build two light water reactor stations in North Korea. Alongside ABB, the United States taxpayer also has a long history of funding nuclear energy to North Korea. ABB, as well as Siemens, have recently been reported on for questionable business dealings and ethics violations.
While ABB will definitely be a major player in the DESERTEC project that claims it is trying to move away from conventional energy sources such as natural gas and fossil fuels, they are simultaneously expanding these types of operations in Algeria (involved in DESERTEC). As reported on ABB’s website: “Zurich, Switzerland, June 9, 2009 – ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, has won a contract worth about $223 million from Sonatrach, the Algerian oil and gas company, for three gas plants in Algeria. Scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2012, the project includes new compressor trains, re-instrumentation of existing gas treatment plants and an integrated control system (ABB’s Extended Automation System 800xA) for both the new and existing facilities. New compressor trains are used to increase the gas flow rate in the pipelines.”
A project of this magnitude could not be complete without a large international bank brokering the financial aspect. Deutsche Bank, one of the largest banks in the world, seems to be the obvious choice. The CEO of Deutsche Bank is certainly no stranger to international affairs. Not only is he a member of the Bilderberg Group, Josef Ackermann is “a Swiss banker who is CEO of Deutsche Bank, also a non-executive director of Royal Dutch Shell; Deputy Chairman of Siemens AG, Europe’s largest engineering corporation; he is also a member of the International Advisory Council of Zurich Financial Services Group; Chairman of the Board of the Institute International of Finance, the world’s only global association of financial institutions; and Vice Chairman of the Foundation Board of the World Economic Forum.”
Judging by the WhiteBook report released by the Club of Rome through DESERTEC, it is quite clear that by utilizing regional governance, it will be hard for any small sovereign nation with no substantial military to stop this initiative. Remember, the globalists have several international paramilitary forces to choose from to see that their objectives are accomplished (NATO troops, UN “peacekeeping” forces, AFRICOM, or even private mercenaries).
AFRICOM was established October 1, 2007 as a temporary sub-unified command under U.S. European Command, which for more than two decades was responsible for U.S. military relations with more than 40 African nations. Continuing with former president Bush’s policies of military policing of foreign land, Obama is expanding this program as well as others in Africa despite the devastating burden that is being placed on the American taxpayers. Daniel Volman of Global Research, details the increased expenditures made by the Obama administration through AFRICOM. This article gives an insightful glance into; Foreign Military Financing, International Military Education and Training, Peacekeeping Operations, International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement, Non-Proliferation, Anti-Terrorism, De-Mining and Related Programs, and AFRICOM. Hundreds of millions of tax dollars will be sent to fund our overseas empire and satisfy the military-industrial complex so that nation building can be sustained and expanded.
To insure a project of this size can only be handled by one of the largest reinsurers of its class, Munich Re (the world’s largest). Munich Re was the major insurer of the World Trade Center in New York City at the time of the buildings’ demolition. Just days before September 11, 2001, their stock was trading at double their average and then went down substantially following the attacks. Surges in purchases of put options on stocks of reinsurance companies expected to pay out billions to cover losses from the attack included Munich Re and the AXA Group. The anomalous purchases translated into large profits as soon as the stock market opened a week after the attack: put options were used on stocks that would be hurt by the attack, and call options were used on stocks that would benefit.
Put and call options are contracts that allow their holders to sell and buy assets, respectively, at specified prices by a certain date. Put options allow their holders to profit from declines in stock values because they allow stocks to be bought at market price and sold for the higher option price. Through this method of insider trading, people with foreknowledge of an event are able to profit immensely.
As has been the case for centuries, the African continent will surely be raped of its national resources and its people will be continually exploited by large international interests. Each of the corporations and organizations mentioned in this project has a history of neglecting humane and ethical business practices and has proven to have sinister self-interest as its top priority. If society is to applaud their efforts to bring centralization of political power under the banner of “globalization,” it does so at its own peril. Concentration of power in the handful of a few globalists will further their agenda of installing global tyranny that will ultimately enslave the planet.
