The resource base of the Earth is currently abundant, in that the planet receives today - 10000x more power from the sun than civilization currently uses. This is a first principles notion that implies general abundance and end of resource conflicts, as soon as this notion is widely recognized. The operational mechanism is that energy can be used to convert natural resources into the lifestuff of prosperous civilization. These are not words, but the essence of how we approach our work.
