red or blue?- Solana&Shell's choice is a single voice

They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb
and by the word of their testimony;
they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.
Therefore rejoice, you heavens and you who dwell in them!
But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you!
He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short." Rev 12.11-12

'Friends of Europe' is a group that allows representatives of European industries to engage directly in debate with EU lawmakers.
On Monday here the Shell Energy Scenarios to 2050, were unveiled in Europe for the first time and charted two plausible ways the world’s energy picture may evolve over the next half-century. The two scenarios are called Scramble and Blueprints.
In the Scramble scenario, nations rush to secure energy resources for themselves, fearing that energy security is a zero-sum game, with clear winners and losers. Under the group's favoured 'Blueprints' scenario, innovation should occur at the local level, as major cities develop links with industry to reduce local emissions. Speaking here, Royal Dutch Shell chief executive Jeroen van der Veer said coalitions should take on the challenges of economic development, energy security and environmental pollution through cross-border cooperation rather than countries rushing to secure energy resources for themselves. "The Blueprints scenario will be realised only if policymakers agree on a global approach to emissions trading and actively promote energy efficiency and new technology in four sectors: heat and power generation; industry; transport and buildings,"' de Veer said.
'This will require hard work and time is short'.
In response, European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana said he supports the 'Blueprint' scenario in general terms. He said the scenario is 'dramatic' in that it requires the cooperation of every country in the world. 'The EU needs to act together rapidly in the Blueprint type of model. A single policy is absolutely fundamental,' Solana said.

in the same time: "The next and vital step has been taken by Europe in its quest to set up the Galileo satellite-navigation system.
EU transport ministers have approved the so-called Galileo Implementation Regulation.
This is the legal instrument that releases the 3.4bn euros agreed by finance ministers in 2007 to fund construction of the space-based system

It means contracts can soon be awarded to establish ground stations, to build spacecraft, and provide launchers. Competition for those contracts should be closed by December, initiating work that ensures Galileo is up and running by the end of 2013."

Nice job on the radio today Bjorn. It's obvious that you're really good at your second but unpaid job...researching the New Age movement.

It really seems obvious from this posting that Solana and other EU individuals want to control the flow of needed supplies.

Does this make anyone think of how the US takes our tax money from the sale of gas for improving highways, but then when a state didn't want to make its speed limits 55mph, the state's money for improving its highways was held by the government. Once you get everybody into the system, you can make them dance to your tune.

"Several major multinationals, including Shell France and cement giant Lafarge, threatened this week to stop investing within Europe or to move operations outside the EU unless the plan to sell emission permits was scrapped."
