th-28082011The world economy is incredibly interconnected today, it is truly global, and the United States would not be immune. Contagion to the core euro area and then onward to emerging Europe remains a tangible risk. But also vice versa, each and every economic tremor in the U.S. affects Europe and the rest of the world almost simultaneously...

The world is observing… some of us with mixed fear and morbid fascination… as we realize once more that even at such critical times, U.S. and European leaders (along with their corresponding organized bodies, circles and syndicates) are basically incapable of escaping their thirst and addiction for power... risking, in the name of their own interests, the wellbeing of their citizens and not only… and most of those leaders that dare to project patriotism as an excuse are merely pathetic and definitely unfit to lead, blind, saturated and brainwashed by vanity!

Did you know?

that every year, Americans buy more than 100 million cell phones, yet fewer than 20% of old cell phones are recycled and that recycling just a million cell phones reduces greenhouse gas emissions equal to removing 1,368 cars off the road for a full year?

that in a lifetime the average European or North American will discard more than 600 times his or her adult weight in garbage and about a ton of trash per person per year?

that the Boeotian Hesiod about 3000 years ago theorized on the entrepreneurship typical of the market (an early laissez-faire), identifying the effects of government debasement of the coinage, which causes a decrease in its purchasing power (think Adam Smith, Keynes and post Keynes), arguing about the importance of competition and the importance of justice and the law in order to foster order and harmony in society?

that 1 recycled tin would save enough energy to power a television for 3 hours; 1 recycled glass bottle would save enough energy to power a computer for 25 minutes; 1 recycled plastic bottle would save enough energy to power a 60-watt light bulb for 3 hours?

that Pytheas the ancient Greek explorer, mathematician, astronomer and navigator must have travelled to the American continent at the time of Alexander the Great?

that recycling 1 ton of paper saves 17 mature trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 3 cubic yards of landfill space, 2 barrels of oil, and 4000 kilowatt hours of electricity; this is enough energy to power the average North American home for 5 months?

that Pytheas through its Soil Water + Life Solutions is probably the only entity world wide that can provide a-no-chimney-no-landfill-solution for the treatment of municipal solid and liquid waste?

that Confucius about 2,500 years ago argued that the government should not compete for profit with the people, as it would only result to the exploitation of the population?

that recycling steel saves 75% of the energy that would be used to create steel from raw materials, enough to power 18 million homes?

that the revenue that is generated from gambling is more than the revenue derived from movies, cruse ships, recorded music, theme parks and spectator sports combined?
