Title: Earth Cent For Peace, Security and Climate
Earth Cent For Peace, Security and Climate is a proposal for worldwide taxation of raw materials for the benefit of the UN. It is important not to found another expensive organization, but to transfer the responsibility for correct handling of the income to a trusted organization that strives worldwide for a better future and a better now. The simple computation fo the Earth Cent follows: per ton of raw material unit one US cent and per energy raw material unit one US dollar is paid to the UN. This would result in an income of 9.5 billion dollars annually to allow effective countering of climate change. In addition, it promises positive effects on world peace and global security.
