The Final Solution by The Royal Swedish Academy

  • Together with Stockholm Environment Institute, Stockholm Resilience Centre, Beijer Institute for Ecological Economics and Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences will bring together some of the world’s most renowned thinkers and experts on global sustainability, 16-19 May 2011 in Stockholm. Only for invited guests.
The agenda for the meeting is presented by The German Advisory Council on Global Change, chaired by Prof. Dr. Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, as a Summary for Policy Makers: World in Transition, A Social Contract for Sustainability:
  • Normatively, the carbon-based economic model is also an unsustainable situation.
  • The transformation towards a low-carbon society is therefore as much an ethical imperative as the abolition of slavery and the condemnation of child labour.
  • This structural transition is the start of a "Great Transformation" into a sustainable society, which must inevitably proceed within the planetary guard rails of sustainability.
  • By the middle of the century, the global energy systems must largely be decarbonised.
  • Production, consumption patterns and lifestyles in all of the three key transformation fields must be changed in such a way that global greenhouse gas emissions are reduced to an absolute minimum over the coming decades, and low-carbon societies can develop.
  • The extent of the transformation ahead of us can barely be overestimated.
  • In terms of profound impact, it is comparable to the two fundamental transformations in the world‘s history:
  • the Neolithic Revolution, i.e. the invention and spreading of farming and animal husbandry, and the Industrial Revolution, meaning the transition from agricultural to industrialised society.
  • This would be something of a quantum leap for civilisation.
  • It should in principle also be possible to reach a universal consensus regarding human civilisation's ability to survive within the natural boundaries imposed by planet Earth.
  • This necessarily presupposes an extensive "Global Enlightenment".
  • So nothing less than a new social contract must be agreed to.
  • Science will play a decisive, although subservient, role here.
  • Ultimately, sustainability is a question of imagination.
In other words, a Final Solution to the Carbon Question will be presented by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. The basic idea is to comb Europe through from West to East from North to South for carbon and transport it to Eastern Poland, where it will be gassed (in special camps, see picture above).

This will secure a carbon-free sustainable Europe, which will serve as a model for the rest of the world including its 3 billion people who still do not have access to essential modern energy services.

The Symposium will conclude with a memorandum signed by key Nobel Laureates, crowned by a
dinner hosted by King Carl XVI Gustaf.

Among the invited 50 of the world’s most renowned thinkers, we find:
  • Martin Rees, President Royal Society,
  • Mikhail Gorbachev, Nobel Peace Prize 1990
  • Andreas Carlgren, Swedish Minister of Environment
  • Murray Gell-Mann, Nobel Prize in Physics 1969 for his contributions and discoveries concerning the classification of elementary particles and their interactions.
  • David Gross, Nobel Prize in Physics 2004 for the discovery of asymptotic freedom in the theory of the strong interaction.
  • Johan Rockström, Stockholm Resilience Center
  • Anders Wijkman, Stockholm Environment Institute.
Note that the key Nobel Laurates when signing the memorandum accept that science will play a subservient role.

It is natural to compare with Manifesto of the Ninety-Three and the suppression of quantum mechanics and relativity in the Soviet Union as "idealistic" and "bourgeois", and in Nazi-Germany as "Jewish physics".

  1. Imagine the looks on their faces when they realize, in coming years, how little the world cares about what they think. I'm afraid I see World War III taking shape, if scientists will not see the revolution already on their doorstep.

  2. Your post is both flippant and tasteless when it draws parallels to the holocaust. You should be ashamed.

  3. Yes, maybe. But what about Schnellnhuber and the Royal Academy? Are they shameless in their suggested "quantum leap for civilization" supported by "subservient science"?

  4. You are completely right. The effects of implementing Schellnhuber's "Great Transformation" on a global scale would be a genocide even worse than Hitler's. We need to make people aware of this. When Hitler's "Mein Kampf" was published in 1925, people didn't take it seriously, although the ideas were clearly pronounced already then. This time, we need a big public discussion about the contents of this new cold coup that they are trying to ram through.

    People should sign this petition to shut down Schellnhuber's WBGU:
