Welcome to Renew The Earth!

Welcome to Renew the Earth

Encouraging the international exchange of ideas, information, and successful actions that transition from a fossil-based economy to one based on renewable energies.

Our economic system doesn’t work for most people. Could there be a missing measurement?

A Human Renewable Energy Measurement (HREM), aka The HERM, is what we think is missing from our economy. Our work energies (physical and mental) have no base measure. We cannot hold our value in the economy and so there is no way to guarantee our quality of life. We belief that all individuals should have equal access to education, food and shelter.
