(Richard McPherson) USofA - American ingenuity, commitment, capability and capacity past and present06.Apr.2019
Richard McPherson, electrical power and grid security expert. He is pursuing executable humanitarian solutions under the nexus of agriculture, water and energy.: The world population has grown from about one billion to over 7 billion in less than 200 years. This is due to the benefits of fossil fuels, hydro-electric and nuclear and their many by-products. In order to save the planet from horrific political and military situations in the 1940s, the United States had to be the major producer of vast amounts of war materials and the leader in the fight against all enemies in World War II. In the meantime, many private organizations and elected officials in the USA have worked to hobble the greatness of America so that it will fall from world leadership. This article describes the tremendous accomplishments of the United States that saved the world in the 1940s. This capability must be preserved to lead the world to solve even greater challenges today.
Richard McPherson, energy expert and advocate for a better world through nexus of agriculture, water and energy: The August 2017 report on “Markets and Reliability” does not report an adequate response to electricity determined to be the Number 1 Critical Infrastructure after the 911 attack on America. What happened over 16-years? Foreign countries whose goal it is to harm the United States have supplied materials, components and equipment including rare earth metals, uranium, computer codes, and hardware to our electricity supply system. Plus having employees embedded owing their allegiance to those countries. All working together has made America’s electricity supply weak. The only result of endless meetings since 1953, is an easily disrupted electricity supply system.
Rob Jeffrey, Independent Economic Risk Consultant: “Although nuclear energy has a high capital cost, it has a large load factor that is about 90%, compared with other energy sources that have a much lower load factor and life capacity.” South Africa’s National Development Plan (NDP) set the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth target at more than 5% a year for the country to meet its economic, social and political objectives. These objectives include the three fundamental targets of reducing inequality, poverty and unemployment.

Homri Kharas, Deputy Director of Global Economy and Development with the Brookings Institute, USA, James Peron, president of the Moorfield Storey Institute, USA, Leon Louw, Founder of the Free Market Foundation, South Africa: We are witnessing the most rapid expansion of the middle class, as a global level, that the world has ever seen. …the vast majority—almost 90 percent—of the next billion entrants into the global middle class will be in Asia: 380 million Indians, 350 million Chinese, and 2,010 million other Asians. This growth in the Asian middle class means rapidly growing economies by 2030: “Today’s lower middle-income countries, including India, Indonesia, and Vietnam, will have middle-class markets that are $15 trillion bigger than today.”
