BOULDER, Colo., June 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Worldwide alarm about the planet's future and our human-engineered habitat is the impetus for discussion at today's Rio+20, the United Nations' global sustainability conference. Talks among conference delegates, however, will inevitably fall short, according to global strategist Daniel Rirdan. He says the existing global political framework simply will not support the formulation of industrial and technological solutions that are far-reaching and integrated enough to avert "impending calamity" on earth. Rirdan, on the other hand, advances a viable plan in his ambitious book, The Blueprint: Averting Global Collapse (ISBN-10: 1470135884; ISBN-13: 978-1470135881).
"I'm offering a highly detailed, planet-wide plan that constitutes anything but light-hearted tips," Rirdan says. "The Blueprint is based on meticulous research and consideration, communication with revered experts, 500 peer-reviewed articles, and copious computations and simulations, which, together, paint the sobering picture of the future and provide guideposts for recovery. Its immediately employable designs would redefine traditional systems, setting a new path for our economy, technology, industry and politics."
Among other subjects, Rirdan addresses co-working renewables that can power the entire electrical grid 24/7; a radically altered economy based on regenerative management of existing resources; and the use of rotational, intensive grazing of livestock that "rewilds" nature. He also illustrates why a carbon-neutral economy is inadequate at this late stage, and introduces a practical plan to capture hundreds of billions of tons of carbon from the air. Furthermore, Rirdan calls for augmenting disparate, outmoded government systems with one world government -- and other experts are taking note.
"Books and websites may tout '10 easy ways to save the planet,' but the way to avoid the catastrophe that confronts us is not going to be easy or simple, but urgently imperative," says David Suzuki, Ph.D., an award-winning scientist and environmentalist author. "Rirdan's book must be read, so we can follow his recommendations. We have no choice, and time is terrifyingly short."
A longtime resident of the United States and, more recently, Boulder, Colo., Rirdan was raised in Israel. He has traveled extensively and is a global strategist, international lecturer and founder of The Exploration Company, where he has directed product development, pioneering sophisticated interactive world maps.
