The Last Frontier On "EARTH"
Greed. recklessmess and no accountability are jeopradizing our Ocean's Resources. Large fishing vessels threaten our seas with extinction. Now science is going so far as to begin experimienting with 'Genetically Engineered Fish'. There's something about that that is not very appetizing or promissing is it?
It's time to start looking to the Future and Protect our Oceans!
The seabed area of the Pacific Ocean between Hawaii and Mexico, over 2500 miles long and 800 miles wide is literally covered with Billions of nodules of metal. These natural resources provide a wealth of enormous proportion. These deepsea bed nodules are composed of approximately 33 percent metal ores, such as copper, cobalt, iron, magnesium, nickel, and various other ores. A major portion of this area falls well within our ISLE claim. When I first undertook this endeavor I had no idea of the political seriousness and sophisticated controversial and convoluted legal hornets nest I was about to get myself into. After about 6 months of intense research and sleepless nights, on something that started out as a rather humorous 'lark', I began to see the the many loopholes and overlooked areas surrounding this monumental issue. When trying to evaluate a situation I sometimes like to 'exaggerate' hypothetical theories and see how they appear. In this case my main question was "What would happen if suddenly all of the oceans of the earth were to evaporate. All answers to this one question led to one statement, there would be the largest land rush in the history of mankind. So why hasn't this happened in the Pacific ocean for example?
Because of one main fact, the lack of technological ability to reap the rewards which lie at the oceans depths. So...the deepsea beds, for main stream humanoids were, as the old saying goes, "out of sight...out of mind". My original theory was that if everyone on earth had just one parcel of some of this 'property' then "we" as a people, not a controlling government, that all too frequently bend from the temptations of political lobbyism from multi-national corporations, could all retain what is rightfully ours, the Common Heritage of Mankind. Now, 25 years later, the ISLE claim still remains intact and has never been contested. Therefore I am now making available to 'everyone' who wants to join in and take a chance on a claim I made in 1975, by showing their support for this controversial issue.
As the ISLE claim is approximately 6 million square miles, and available in one acre units, at 640 acres per square mile, there is enough for at least every family on this planet to have at least one piece of Earth's endangered Last Frontier. To this end, along with the parcels, I have created a few simple, but environmentally protective by-laws. The deeds are sold much like when you buy any property, with certain restrictions, these restrictions are designed to allow for protections and rejuvenation of the deepsea bed resources and the overall environment of the waterways surrounding them. One of the main issues is protection against the constant abuse of 'corporate greed'.
T he waterways and lakes of our countries, now even the oceans themselves, are over exploited and over polluted. It seems mankind will over work an area to the point of extinction and devastation, all in the name of 'saving jobs'. It used to be that fishermen could go out 10 to 15 miles and catch their quota, now they are forced to go out over 150 miles, in some areas, even more, just to make a living. According to scientific findings, the minerals of the deepsea bed were created ions ago by volcanic activity. Until the mid 20th century, the means for extraction of these valuable resources was virtually non-existent this played a major role in the total lack of interest for ownership and control over the deepsea bed. In earlier centuries ownership was determined by the range of canon fire, which was established at 3 miles, later as technology increased the boundaries were established at 50 miles, or to the outer reaches of the countries own continental shelf or 200 miles where it remains today.
There are two (2) basic reasons why a major commercial harvest exploitation has not yet started. The first being 'political'; the failure of a fair 'across the board' policy in the UN, jealousy, anti-private sentiment, charges of American greed, the failed hopes of delegates to the exhausting UN conferences of the Law of the Sea Treaties negotiations, (of which I am proud to have played a role in), to radically restrict the US role in seabed mining, and attempts by delegates from underdeveloped countries to write the mining rules to their own advantage and to penalize technologically superior nations in the process..
The Second being; what is mentioned earlier, the previous lack of world-wide 'vessel' technology to extract these resources from the oceans depth. The companies with capabilities to do can be mentioned on one hand, companies such as the U.S. based Kennicott Copper and DeepSea Ventures, Inc. (who also deemed it important enough to establish a claim; see ISLE's Property Description page.), along with a few others around the globe.One of the fears now with environmental groups the world over is that with the increase in the advancement in technology, mankind is threatening to make extinct the very source of food and hard mineral resources they exploit. Mining companies left to police their own actions historically seem to care little for the long term and only for the immediate and self-serving reward.I can see a major problem ahead if nodules were to go under such international control and if mining licenses are issued without 'Solid Time Guarantees' to allow for proper rejuvenation and strong contamination protection, what happens to these resources that took millions of years to harvest, when those resources are gone, or polluted to extinction? Where do we go, who do we ask for help, what happens when the smoke clears and the rubble and ruin lie in the wake of the greed and abuse, what do we do when the world asks...Why? What did you do? What gives you the right?
Let's all make a profit and and allow the entire world to reap the valuable food and other resource benefits the deepsea beds have to offer, but let's do it sensibly and protectively. While your deed is only as strong as ISLE's claim, (see legal title section) , with the help and support from all of you who feel as I do for the need for focus and education on this issue, we can make a difference.
