The Equal Money System will reduce the use of non-renewable energy resources by 95% through removing the profit motive and replacing it with the production of effective products of the best quality available equally to all, supplementing energy needs with renewable energy sources.
Within an Equal Money system - each one will receive their fair share. Distribution of goods will be based within the principle of Equality and may include no form of discrimination - whether it be based on money, which is the case in the free market, or whether it is based on relationships with friends and family.
Please educate yourself on the reality and consequences of the free market at the Economist's Journey to Life blog. The free market will always produce situations of inequality as it encourages behavior of discrimination in the name of profit.
In terms of 95% - here is a response we made on a similar question:
"95% is what we can see currently is possible, If 100% is possible then we will by all means do 100%. 95% is through looking at where and on what all energy is consumed on currently, of which most of what is here isn’t necessary for Life and within the best interest of all life - but is purely made up/created/invented for making money/profit, which leads to the unnecessary usage of energy sources that are finite/limited.
So, within removing such points of energy usage we can see how using energy within itself will lessen no matter what or where the energy comes from such as oil, coal, wood, gas etc – so within ending unnecessary points of energy usage that are currently existent within this world and within replacing the source of where the energy comes from to sustainable energy we cannot for sure say 100% until it is operational and we can practically see what is able to be done further. If you have any suggestions or input please join the forums for discussion."
When living in a world where each one's needs are taken care of and each individual is able to live a life of dignity - any being acting in a way to enhance their personal interests at the disadvantage of another indicates behaviour that will be based on some form of psychological problem, which will then be addressed with appropriate treatment, assistance and education.
If the nature of human beings were trustworthy to always act in a way that is Best for All and each one contributes equally – then, yes – the added value would be a profit that benefits life in an equal way. However, human beings are not as such trustworthy – and in this situation, the profit motive cannot be used as it results in a situation we see in the world today – where some profit and most suffer.
95% is what we can see currently is possible, If 100% is possible then we will by all means do 100%. 95% is through looking at where and on what all energy is consumed on currently, of which most of what is here isn’t necessary for Life and within the best interest of all life - but is purely made up/created/invented for making money/profit, which leads to the unnecessary usage of energy sources that are finite/limited.

Existen ciertamente nuevas tecnologías que podrán ser implementadas en el Sistema Igualitario Monetario, ya que el actual obstáculo para su uso y regulación de manera institucionalizada es el sistema mismo donde nuevas tecnologías significaría una menor capacidad de generar ganancias. Por ende, una vez que esté implementado el Sistema Igualitario Monetario, todas las tecnologías podrán ser puestas al servicio de mejorar la vida misma en el planeta, y no más un negocio de beneficio para unos cuantos. El hacer este principio de igualdad parte de nuestros días es la solución por ahora; no es que el cambio deba ser ‘gratis’ o no, sino más bien reconocer las pérdidas que ya existen a nivel físico como ecosistema debido a la explotación exacerbada de recursos para mantener sistemas energéticos en pie. Una reforma energética únicamente puede existir como tal si el dinero deja de ser la motivación para proveer formas más limpias y viables de generación de energía.
What is meant by profit motive is the following:
This world is driven by profit, doing something to make money so that we can use that money to survive. If you have a look at the world today we are stripping the world from its resources for profit which is unacceptable
What is meant by effective products is the following:
In the quest for profit and money we came up with allot of useless stuff to sell and what we do not really need. We do not need hundreds of different brands for washing machines which vary in quality – it would be so much more effective to make a washing machine that would be of best quality and designed to last a long time. That would be an effective product, The same goes for computers, cars and cellphones etc. When you make a product of the best quality that will stand the test of time then we will use less energy and less resources, because they won’t break as quickly.
Within implementing an Equal Money System, we will be able to develop and apply the optimal solutions to provide clean and sustainable energy to all citizens of the earth, as science will no longer be used to secure profit for the few. There are currently many solutions already being tested and developed that are not effectively implemented, because the foundation of the world's economic and political systems are not based on the principle of what is best for all - but only on securing profit for a few. As such we will investigate and research all solutions that has the potential to provide clean, sustainable energy and encourage anyone who has a background in engineering or physics, who are interested in developing such solutions, to participate in the research and discussions on the Equal Money forum here on the site.
This is fascinating, thanks for sharing – that is the type of technologies that will most certainly build the foundation to a new transportation wherein no more fossil fuels and the consequences thereof will exist. If we look at it, only money stands in the way of establishing this type of transportation as an alternative to airlines that are already going through major problems in relation to high costs of fuels.
Thus, we can certainly consider ET3 and other alternatives as part of the energetic systems. Once that money is no longer a source of ‘power’ as in profit-making, all technologies and related research will simply be used and applied as a means to better the lives of all beings on Earth.
I suggest sharing your research on this technology on the forum, so that more people can discuss and become aware of its existence and development.
Access to Energy is a Human Right, so it will be given Freely within an Equal Money System.
New renewable sources will have to be investigated and assessed or re-assessed once the Equal Money System is implemented, as, at the moment, much of what Science has researched and released has been tied within and as Money and Profit only.
We can safely say that we do not know what could and will be available that we have not yet considered as Potential Renewable Sources of Energy, due to Profit having been in the way of research financing and disclosure, but we will discover it once the profit motive is Out of the Equation and will implement What is Best for All, considering both Sustainability and Protection of the Environment .
Yes, if it is possible to reduce it by 100 % in a sustainable way that is best for all life, there is definitely no excuse not to do it. These are the solutions qualified people will have to research and develop a way of obtaining and distributing energy resources in a way that is best for all. If this is something you would like to participate in, I suggest you join the Equal Money Forum here on the website and share how it would be practical possible to reduce non-renewable energy sources by 100 %.
Yes – The inventions of Nicola Tesla have been supressed as the funders that direct the flow of history did not see how they could make a profit, especially from the Warden Cliff wireless system where energy would be free to those who were in the radius of the magnetic energy produced from the system. Within the Equal Money System these systems can be revisited to investigate what is best for all within the world, standing free from the constraints that ‘profit’ has placed on the development of technology.
Understand though, that the main issue here is not just the production of "energy" within itself, but how we as humanity have misused energy within our drive for profit. This resulted in many products beings created which are not necessary -- where a singular object is produced in 50 different ways by different companies and brands -- each looking for profit, and to provide "choice" to the consumer. This causes major amounts of waste both in terms of energy and resources such as oil.
Switching from non-renewable energy to renewable/"free energy" is from this perspective not a 'complete' solution -- as it still allows for us to be inconsiderate towards the rate of resource use , the reason why we produce goods -- and why we buy them (the whole consumerism lifestyle).
The main focus will thus firstly lie within re-structuring how and what we produce -- where whatever we produce is made to be the best it can be. This will immensely decrease energy and resource consumption, where we'll be able to achieve a sustainable level of production and consumption of products. Within that -- we can explore alternative forms of energy generation.
Indeed, renewable energy at this time is not an effective solution as it is contained within the confines of an economic system with a one-track motive for profit alone – and as such, within the production of renewable energy, what is not and cannot be taken into consideration when profit is the starting point, is the most practical solution that would benefit ALL in every way, utilizing the least amount of resources/energy possible in the production process – which is precisely the starting point that renewable energy will be considered within, in an Equal Money System: To create an energy system that is best for all.
Currently nuclear energy is the most effective source of energy that is able to be measured, thus able to bill the appropriate users for the industry to be able to make a profit. When profit is no longer a factor a world of alternative energy resources are opened up as immeasurable energy has not been considered as alternative sources of effective energy within our current economic system.
Another point to consider is that, when consumerism is no longer the driving force, where products are designed to break and become ineffective within a short period of time, using up an extensive amount energy resources for profit, and we are instead producing products that are built to last a lifetime - we will require less energy in general, and thus we can revisit what forms of energy are viable in the long-term on Earth.
Consider that what you are saying within this comment is that we have to accept the world the way it is because we cannot change our human nature. What that is, is in fact a justification of greed and human nature as we have accepted it. And this is exactly why human being don't change. As humans we come up with excuses and justifications for not changing. By saying it is impossible we make it so. What we are saying here and what we are doing with the Equal Money System is not only that it is possible, but that we have a responsibility to change who we have accepted and allowed ourselves to become within and as our human nature. We decide.
Here we are laying out the basic principles based on which the different aspects of a support system will be developed. The principles are ‘explained’ and discussed in detail on the websites and forums, therefore anyone coming with such deliberate spitefulness without doing the necessary research, without taking the time to participate, without coming up with any practical suggestions: are merely abdicating their own voice/vote and exclude themselves from being part of the solution.
I’d suggest investigating where such spitefulness and blame comes from, because in the current system of ‘divide and conquer’ people and groups are turned against each-other deliberately: for as long as human beings are preoccupied in projections of fear, blame, revenge, they will not stand-up to work together towards actual solutions that will change the system once and for all.
Yes, we agree. Join us on the Forum and share your input.
To give perspective on what it is that one is stating when declaring ‘I like it as is’:
One thus then ‘likes it’ that most in this world exist within absolute poverty and squalor – not to mention that a child dies every 3 seconds from preventable poverty - while a select few thrive and exist within extreme overindulgence and luxury, that can only be obtained by compromising the Life of another.
Who is really ‘profiting’ when the consequence of this type of system is destroying the very planet that we ALL share? A system based on profit is not sustainable – as it claims infinite growth when resources are clearly finite.
The overarching fear of lack drives human beings to only consider themselves and their own survival, no matter the cost, not realizing that in so doing we are accumulating our own demise, as we are failing to see the consequence of such acceptance, and that unless we create a system that values all Life, we will surely perish.
In terms linking ‘removing profit’ to ‘Communism,’ we suggest to read through the wiki pages where the answer to the question: Isn’t Equal Money just another name for Communism? is answered.
Here’s a simple equation and an example of a massive energy consumption reduction in the Equal Money System:
Given that in the current profit driven system it takes 1 unit of energy to produce 1 laptop that lasts, due to planned obsolescence, on average 2 years. Additional 1 unit of energy is consumed when the laptop is delivered to you. In 10 years you therefore need to buy 5 laptops, that cost 5 units of energy to produce and 5 units of energy to be transported to you. Result is 10 units of energy for the Capitalistic system.
In the Equal Money System only the highest quality laptops would be produced, without planned obsolescence designed into them. Given it costs 2 units of energy to produce a laptop that lasts 10 years and 1 unit of energy for it to be delivered to you. In 10 years you only need to buy 1 laptop, consuming 2 units of energy in production and 1 unit of energy in transport. Total is 3 units of energy for the Equal Money System.
That’s 70% less energy consumption in the Equal Money System, in this particular example.
We can further increase this number, through including the cost of dealing with the waste of 5 computers vs 1 computer, including the savings of energy and resources when all the information and technologies to produce the best laptop possible would be freely shared between the producers, etc. But at this stage of the design of the Equal Money System these details are irrelevant. The point is to show you, how, through changing one part of the system we live in, we’ll see massive change that is best for all in another part of the system as everything is inter-connected and inter-dependent as the functioning and workings of the system as human civilization.

The solar plants situation in the countries mentioned has nothing to do with Equal Money System as the whole situation is subject to lobbying, political and economical pressure, within a system where there has to be someone that makes money/profit on the expense of others. In the Equal Money System we wouldn’t have to subside or lobby for something. We’d simply find the simplest answer to the question “How do we provide enough electricity/energy for the given population in the given area without being limited by artificial scarcity the current money system enforces?”.
