Papal Encyclical Divine Illumination on Carbon Manna ?


The Pope's upcoming Encyclical due to be released on 29 June 2009 echoes many of the key themes detailed in this blog the past year, in particular:

-->> New micro-economic paradigms that benefit the Poor are needed

-->> New ways of thinking that eliminate the gap between Rich & Poor in today's unfavorable world economy are needed

-->> Micro-property rights of the Poor must be respected

-->> Environmental problems unduly affect the Poor compared to the Rich, and

-->> Just men with pure hearts are the prerequisite for economic justice for the Poor.

Carbon Manna is an apotheosis (perfect example) of these themes in action for the Benefit of Humanity.

Carbon Manna cook-stove projects in Africa, in particular, will vastly improve the standard of living of the rural Poor -- 5,000 - 20,000 families at a time. This is the scale needed for economic efficiencies. So only 100 projects over 5 years would comprise about 1 million families, or 6+ million people. Although our Carbon Manna Africa Ltd. team in Kenya is thinking even BIGGER than this.

And being open source, any other groups worldwide are welcome to implement Carbon Manna projects in their countries or territories. Within the next year we will publish on our web site all the documentation needed to undertake a cell-phone-based Carbon Manna project. Anyone will be welcome to download it and adapt it to their own projects.

Our goal ? -- within 5 - 7 years have at least 5 - 10 million families enrolled in cell-phone-based Carbon Micro-Profit-Sharing programs worldwide, which approximates about 30 - 60+ million people.

In sum, if he knew about Carbon Manna, we're sure the Pope would find it, well, like Manna from Heaven.

Very religiously yours,

"On February 26, 2009 Pope Benedict met with parish priests and clergy of the Diocese of Rome for a question-and-answer session. In response to a question concerning how the Catholic Church should respond to injustice and continue in its defence of vulnerable persons, he outlined key themes from the upcoming encyclical:


What is needed is the reasonable and reasoned denunciation of the errors, not with great moral statements, but rather with concrete reasons that prove to be understandable in today's economic world. [...]

To realize that these great objectives of macro-science are not realized in ***micro-science*** -- the macroeconomics in the microeconomics -- without the conversion of hearts. If there are no just men, there is no justice either [...]

Justice cannot be created in the world only with good economic models, even if these are necessary. Justice is only brought about if there are just men. And there are no just men without the humble, daily endeavor of converting hearts, and of creating justice in hearts.

On June 13, 2009, the AP reported:

Pope Benedict XVI said Saturday his new encyclical on the economy and labor issues will focus on ways to make globalization more careful to the needs of the poor amid the worldwide financial crisis. The document will outline the goals and values that the faithful must "tirelessly defend" to ensure "true freedom and solidarity" among humans, Benedict said in a speech. He said the global downturn shows the need to "rethink economic and financial paradigms that have been dominant in the last years."
