Our Vision

Humanity already has the technology to implement a global energy revolution. We can now usher in a post-scarcity era while solving the most intractable problems that threaten life on Earth.

Our Mission

The Science Council for Global Initiatives, Inc. (SCGI) is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to informing the public and policymakers about technologies and strategies that can lead to an energy-rich world. SCGI provides a forum for many of the world's prominent scientists, authors and activists to collaborate and share their knowledge regarding solutions to the world's energy, resource and environmental problems.



The Science Council for Global Initiatives is a growing international group of scientists, politicians, activists and other concerned men and women working together to articulate cohesive, efficient policies for solving the most serious problems ever faced by mankind. Resource wars, globe-girdling pollution, the threat of serious climate disruption; these challenges demand immediate international cooperation and inspiration on an unprecedented level. The world-class members of SCGI are creating the foundations for political and social structures that will enable us to meet the formidable challenges of the 21st century.

The technologies available will not, in and of themselves, solve our problems. While their deployment and utilization are critical, powerful industries and traditions will resist the paradigm shift that must inevitably take place. The solutions must not only be presented to our national and international leaders. The citizenry must become informed and vocal enough in their advocacy of these remedies to overpower the special interests that strangle political leadership in so many countries around the world.

On this web site you will find an ever-growing resource base to understand the technologies that can turn the tide and lead humanity not just back from the brink of global crisis, but which can take us to the threshold of an era beyond scarcity. SCGI is dedicated to uplifting the standard of living of everyone, not just the relative few who enjoy the comforts of a “developed country” lifestyle.
