PLANETARY PROJECT

Climate change, the threat of the imminent depletion of resources, natural and political cataclysms, wars, and the world economic crisis all lead to the conclusion that we are on the brink of catastrophe. However, we still have a last chance to survive and to preserve the world for ourselves and our descendants. We can do this by stopping conflicts and becoming sincere humanity.

The Planetary Project is a scientific theory and a practical programme of creating a new economic base for a polycentric world in which every country can take its place in the global division of labour and achieve a satisfactory level of life.

We propose a new world design based on a planetary code. This code is universal: it allows cultural diversity and unity in the way humans treat the planet.

It is possible to save the world only if we unite and start taking the right decisions based on reason, spirituality and compromise. If we do not begin this journey right now, it will soon become too late to do it.

People are actually happier when they make more money

While the old adage says that money can't buy happiness, several studies have shown that the more your income increases, the happier you are, up to $ 75,000 a year. Once this threshold is reached, more income doesn't matter. The happiest people in the world have an average annual salary of $ 36,000. The happiest country in the world appears to be Finland, and in its capital, Helsinki, the average salary is £ 27,936 (about US $ 36,000). This study follows the much-discussed Princeton University study in 2010, which found that emotional well-being rises only with income up to about $ 75,000 for Americans (or $ 86,000 in today's dollars)...

EAT-Lancet study argue that the consumption of meat is deeply harmful for the planet. Planet needs Vegetarians!!!

With the world’s population heading towards ten billion by 2050, the current consumption of meat — and the global trends towards even higher intakes — means destroying forests for pastures and increasing the industrial production of grains to feed animals. This is leading to greater greenhouse gas emissions, pollution from fertilisers and species extinctions. Also, ruminants emit methane, which is a potent greenhouse gas, further intensifying climate change. Thus, meat products have the worst environmental impacts. We have found that...

A Hot Spot in the Land of Ice

The warmer the climate is in the Arctic, the cooler the relations are between the northern countries. It took a third of the last century for the Arctic Ocean’s ice cover to shrink by one third. The natural wealth of the Arctic water area has become more accessible, and international cooperation in this region has turned into rivalry. There is something to fight for, indeed. According to official data of the United States Geological Survey, almost a quarter of the world's hydrocarbon resources are concentrated in the depths of the Arctic: 90 billion barrels of oil, more than 48 trillion cubic meters of natural gas, and 44 billion barrels of gas condensate. And since there is no single international treaty defining the legal status of the Arctic, several nations have already claimed the right to the exclusive possession of promising territories...
