Chief Visionary Officer

French, English and Spanish
Fascinated by adventure and exploration since his childhood, Raphaël Domjan is today an eco-explorer active in protecting the planet, its biodiversity and atmosphere. Through visionary projects and audacious challenges, this Swiss national wants to show that renewable sources of energy are reliable, efficient and economically viable.
" Using innovation, the spirit of exploration and the dream to change our society and create a better world" - this is what drives Raphael Domjan.
As Global Solar Eco Air Force and Global Solar Eco Navy Visionary Officer, Mr. Domjan engages with a variety of scientists, physicists, engineers and investors interested in mainstreaming solar power in the Nautical, Aeronautical and Aerospace Industries all around the World.
In 2005, he set up an association and surrounded himself with people able to help him realize his project PlanetSolar. Five years later, a trimaran 35 metres long, 23 metres wide, with solar panels covering a surface of 537 m2 was launched.
The MS Tûranor PlanetSolar's port of departure and arrival was Monaco. With a crew of three, he set sail at the helm of 'his' solar boat on 27 September 2010, heading west in search of the sun. PlanetSolar returned with its Swiss skipper to 'le Rocher' on 4 May 2012 to complete the first solar-powered voyage around the world. This was a record.
The sky was clear, the stars shining brightly and another idea came to him: approach space, see the curvature of the earth and observe the stars during the day using solar energy!
With this even more audacious project, Raphaël Domjan wants to continue demonstrating the potential of renewable energy. "Having circumnavigated the world in a solar boat, I wanted to go further and show that solar energy can enable us to do things that cannot be done with fossil fuels."
This was the beginning of a new eco-adventure that was launched in March 2014 with the name SolarStratos. The aim of the mission is to make the first-ever manned solar-flight to the stratosphere. As with PlanetSolar, Raphaël Domjan is looking for ways to improve our knowledge and expertise in the development of technologies to create a sustainable world. In his mind, "SolarStratos is a symbol of the pioneering spirit, of the dream, of innovation with the aim of demonstrating the potential of renewable energies and energy efficiency."

As CMO, Mr. Catania has the honor and responsibility to attract High Net Worth Donors. With the various and creative Marketing strategies, Global Eco Army is able to achieve its short, mid and long term goals with potential donors interested in making a BIG IMPACT and difference to SAVE THE WORLD with us.
High Net Worth Donors are more inclined to give once they have a greater understanding of where their money is going. They want their major gifts to transform into actionable change. So, these types of measurable results help generate long term relationships with donors.
If they are given evidence that their contributions will result in positive, lasting change, they will want to contribute in the future. Not only are their intentions valued, but they are acted upon by the causes they want to see flourish. So, not only will our cause be able to secure gifts in the present, but they will in the future as well by showing clients, sponsors and donors measurable results.
For many High Net Worth Donors, giving is not an individual venture. It involves every member of their immediate family, especially their children. By doing this, they are collectively encouraging, nurturing, and involving the next generation in giving. They want them to enhance their skill set to review grants and build their decision-making skills. Especially if their children are to manage the family foundation later on, it’s crucial that they have a space to develop their passion for philanthropy.

Chief Warrior Officer
Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger (/ˈʃvɑːrtsnɛɡər/;[a] German: [ˈaʁnɔlt ˈʃvaʁtsn̩ˌʔɛɡɐ]; born July 30, 1947) is an Austrian-American actor, filmmaker, businessman, author, and former professional bodybuilder and politician. He served as the 38th Governor of California from 2003 to 2011. As of 2019, he is the most recent Republican governor of California. Schwarzenegger began lifting weights at the age of 15. He won the Mr. Universe title at age 20 and went on to win the Mr. Olympia contest seven times, remaining a prominent presence in bodybuilding and writing many books and articles on the sport. The Arnold Sports Festival, considered the second most important professional bodybuilding event in recent years, is named after him. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest bodybuilders of all time, as well as the sport's most charismatic ambassador.
After successful careers in bodybuilding, Hollywood and politics, the Governator is fighting for Mother Earth. Arnold Schwarzenegger explains in his own words why he's all in as an eco-warrior.
Quote: "Positive thinking can be contagious. Being surrounded by winners helps you develop into a winner"
Quote: "Be hungry for successs, hungry to make your mark, hungry to be seen and to be heard and to have effect. And as you move up and become successful, make sure also to be hungry for helping others."
Quote: "What is the point of being on this Earth if you are going to be like everyone else?"
As Chief Warrior Officer, Mr. Schwarzenegger is in charge to train our troops mentally and physically for any challenge or task that requires the strongest human endurance. He will ensure that our troops are in excellent shape for the task in hand by land, sea and air. His mentorship will create and manifest the courage for our troops in the battlefield. He will transform the impossible into possible, yes we can! attitude all around the World.
Mr. Schwarzenegger will improve our Planet's economy without impairing our environment. He will be a passionate defender of our Planet Earth Environment, providing real leadership to protect our precious land, air, and water.
He believes that part of our Planet's greatness lies in its natural reources and beauty. What we do to our Planet must improve our quality of life, and environmental damage runs counter to that. Even from an economic perspective, our environment must be protected. If we have beaches soiled by oil spills, tourists will not come. If we log our forests irresponsibly, stream beds will be destroyed and our fishing industry will be damaged.
Mr. Schwarzeneger believes we can improve our Worldwide Economy without impairing our environment, and will govern by this belief. He will assemble a team of environmental advisors that will elaborate on key issues.
Breathing clean and healthy air is the right of all Citizens of the World.
California’s Clean Air Act was the model for the federal Clean Air Act and California always led the nation in clean air programs. As governor, he examined the federal exemption of new sources of industrial air pollution from “new source review” and proposed state regulations to ensure that new facilities do not worsen air quality.
Global Eco Navy Admiral
Global Eco Air Force 5 Star General
Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, KG, KT, PC, ADC (William Arthur Philip Louis;[fn 1] born 21 June 1982) is a member of the British royal family. He is the elder son of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Diana, Princess of Wales. Since birth, he has been second in the line of succession to the British throne.
Quote: " Twenty years on I still feel the love she gave us and that is a statement to her massive heart and her amazing ability to be a great mother"
Quote: " People say it's not ambitious, but is actually quite ambitious wanting to help people"
Quote: " My guiding principles in life are to be honest, genuine, thoughtful and caring. "
Prince William has announced a multi-million pound prize for “visionaries” working to solve “Earth’s greatest environmental problems,” from climate change to air pollution. The Earthshot Prize will be awarded to five winners, every year, for the next 10 years. The initiative’s goal is to provide “at least 50 solutions to the world’s greatest problems by 2030.”
The prize was designed by and will initially be handled by the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge — headed by Prince William and Kate Middleton.
More than 60 organizations and experts were consulted in the process; in time, the Earthshot Prize will likely become an independent organization that continues to involve environmental NGOs, according to a press release from Kensington Palace.
This year, the initiative will debut a series of “Earthshot challenges,” according to its website, with a goal of “[seeking] answers to the biggest issues currently facing the planet, including: climate and energy, nature and biodiversity, oceans, air pollution and fresh water.”
As Global Eco Navy Admiral, Prince William will assist in bringing to fruition the most challenging solutions to reduce plastic pollution all around the World and convert salt water into drinking water. He will also contribute with his philantropic support to promote our Global Eco Navy around the World.
As Global Eco Air Force 5 Star General, Prince William will assist in providing a Prize that aims to encourage transformative environmental solutions — especially for communities most vulnerable to the negative effects of climate change. He will also contribute with his philantropic support to promote our Global Eco Air Force around the World.
Earthshot Prize winners will involve a significant cash-prize, as well as public recognition at an annual ceremony. Submissions will be accepted from “individuals, teams or collaborations — scientists, activists, economists, leaders, governments, banks, businesses, cities, and countries,” the press release notes, with a goal of sparking a global movement by inspiring “collaborative projects that would not otherwise have been pursued.”
In a statement, Prince William said that humanity now faces a “stark choice” between maintaining the status quo — which, he argues, will “irreparably” damage the planet — or cultivating innovative solutions. “The next ten years present us with one of our greatest tests, William said, framing the Earthshot Prize as part of “a decade of action to repair the earth.”
William was educated at four schools in the United Kingdom and studied for a degree at the University of St Andrews. During a gap year, he spent time in Chile, Belize, and Africa. In December 2006, he completed 44 weeks of training as an officer cadet and was commissioned in the Blues and Royals regiment. In April 2008, William completed pilot training at Royal Air Force College Cranwell, then underwent helicopter flight training and became a full-time pilot with the RAF Search and Rescue Force in early 2009. His service with the British Armed Forces ended in September 2013. He then trained for a civil pilot's License, and spent over two years working as a pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Though Major-General Sir Sebastian Roberts, General Officer commanding the Household Division, had said William's deployment was possible, the Prince's position as second-in-line to the throne and the convention of ministers advising against placing that person into dangerous situations cast doubts on William's chances of seeing combat. These doubts increased after Prince Harry's deployment was cancelled in 2007 due to "specific threats".
William, instead, went on to train in the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force, obtaining his commission as a sub-lieutenant in the former and flying officer in the latter—both broadly equivalent to the army rank of lieutenant. After completing his training, William undertook an attachment with the Royal Air Force, undergoing an intensive, four-month training course at RAF Cranwell. Upon completing the course on 11 April 2008, he was presented with his RAF wings by his father, who had received his own wings after training at Cranwell. During this secondment, William flew to Afghanistan in a C-17 Globemaster that repatriated the body of Trooper Robert Pearson.
William was then seconded to train with the Royal Navy from June to August 2008, during which he spent three weeks at the Britannia Royal Naval College training on units of the surface fleet and submarines, as well as with the Fleet Air Arm and the Royal Marines. He spent a day on submarine HMS Talent. During a five-week deployment on HMS Iron Duke in the Caribbean, he took part in a joint operation with the United States Coast Guard that identified and captured a speedboat carrying 900 kg (2,000 lb) of cocaine worth about £40 million. The ship also took part in other raids.
Because of William's future royal role, a long-term career in the military was considered out of the question; due to his position, his desire to see active service was unlikely to be fulfilled. William originally joined the military on a short-service commission lasting three years. It was announced in September 2008, however, that he would be extending his forces career in 2008 by accepting another secondment that included working at the Ministry of Defence (MOD) and non-operational flying with the Army Air Corps. It was later announced that he would transfer from the Army to the RAF to train as a full-time search and rescue helicopter pilot.

Bohdan says: "I'm incredibly excited to be actively participating in public life and my goal is to help the system transform in a way that these rights are guaranteed to everyone. Sometimes involvement in public society isn't enough to give impetus to big changes, but it only motivates me to look for new ways.
Hobbies: Bohdan Vorontsov enjoys National and International Travel, growing up as a child he was part of the Children's National Folk Dance Team in Ukraine which enabled him to travel the World from an early age.
In his teenage years he became a Ski Instructor, he was also a Swimming Champion, something he still enjoys doing as often as his time allows.
Bohdan, further shares: "Since childhood, I have liked active sports. Having tried my strength once in horse sports I realized it was love at first sight! Just the fact that horses are so graceful and generous inspire these thoughts and feelings. In this tandem, we have won repeatedly, demonstrating a powerful relationship. It brings me incredible pleasure that between business and public activity, I can still take some time aside to go horseback riding.
Who I am now has become possible, thanks to sports. I'm still deeply confident that a hobby produces discipline and strengthens the strength of our spirit. If it weren't for the perseverance and confidence I've tempered in training, I'd have a very hard time dealing with all the challenges life has posed for me.
Sometimes I will share with you my views on life, tell you about my preferences and hobbies. Although it's personal, it definitely has its own, special, aesthetics. I want to show that life shouldn't be filled with politics only, but also with moments that inspire to move forward."

He was inspired by French electronic music composer Jean-Michel Jarre. Van Buuren graduated from the Stedelijk Gymnasium Leiden in 1995, and studied law at Leiden University. He began working as a DJ in Club Nexus, playing multiple sets a week, most of which lasted six or more hours. In 1999, he met Dave Lewis who introduced him as a DJ in England and the United States. As his musical career began to take off, he put his law degree on hold, but he did return to graduate from law school in 2003.
On 18 September 2009, Van Buuren married Erika van Thiel. Their daughter Fenna was born in July 2011. Van Buuren announced just hours before he was due to headline the main stage at Tomorrowland (27 July 2013) that his wife had given birth to a son, Remy.

After being signed to AM PM Records, this track entered the UK Singles Chart at No. 18 in 2000.
In the beginning of 1999, Van Buuren started his label Armind together with United Recordings. The first release, Gig – "One", was well received. The second release, "Touch Me" under the name Rising Star, was signed to Ministry of Sound in the UK, before the record was released. By the time of his third release, Gimmick – "Free" was signed to R&S Records. During this year, he remixed the first two singles of Gouryella (Gouryella and Walhalla) and, under the guise of Rising Star, produced a remix of L'Esperanza, a song by Airscape.

Chief Philanthropy Officer
Michael Rubens Bloomberg (born February 14, 1942) is an American politician, businessman, and author. He was mayor of New York City from 2002 to 2013. He is a candidate in the Democratic Party primaries for the 2020 United States presidential election.
Bloomberg grew up in Medford, Massachusetts and attended Johns Hopkins University and Harvard Business School. He began his career at the securities brokerage Salomon Brothers, before forming his own company in 1981 spending the next twenty years as its chairman and CEO. He is the co-founder, CEO, and majority owner of Bloomberg L.P., a global financial services, software and mass media company that bears his name, and is known for its Bloomberg Terminal, a computer software system providing financial data widely used in the global financial services industry.
As of November 2019, this made him the 9th richest person in the United States and the 14th richest person in the world; his net worth was estimated at $58 billion. Since signing The Giving Pledge whereby billionaires pledge to give away at least half of their wealth, Bloomberg has given away $8.2 billion. Of $3.3 billion he gave to Johns Hopkins University, his $1.8 billion gift in 2018 for student financial aid was the largest private donation ever made to a higher education institution.
Quote: Being an entrepreneur isn't really about starting a business. It's a way of looking at the world: seeing opportunity where others see obstacles, taking risks when others take refuge."
"The best leaders INCENTIVIZE, INSPIRE & EMPOWER their teams to be creative and innovative."
"The basics of commerce don't change: You've got to have something that people need, something that they can't get elsewhere. And the more they can't get it elsewhere, the more they need it."
"Don't be afraid to assert yourself, have confidence and in your abilities and don't let the bastards get you down."
As Chief Philanthropy Officer, Mr. Bloomberg will provide a financial donation to plant billions of trees around the World.
Further, Mr. Bloomberg will donate a special software designed to keep track of our Planet's efforts to reduce the pollution in our water, air and soil.
Last, but not least, Mr. Bloomberg will provide advertisement for our Global Eco Army, Navy and Airforce all around the World to reach greater masses with the objective to have them join for action.
Bloomberg served as the 108th mayor of New York City, holding office for three consecutive terms, beginning his first in 2002. A lifelong Democrat before seeking elective office, Bloomberg switched his party registration in 2001 to run for mayor as a Republican. He defeated opponent Mark J. Green in a close election held just weeks after the September 11 terrorist attacks.
He won a second term in 2005 and left the Republican Party two years later. Bloomberg campaigned to change the city's term limits law and was elected to his third term in 2009 as an independent on the Republican ballot line. His final term as mayor ended on December 31, 2013.
Bloomberg also served as chair of the board of trustees at his alma mater, Johns Hopkins University, from 1996 to 2002. After a brief stint as a full-time philanthropist, Bloomberg re-assumed the position of CEO at Bloomberg L.P. by the end of 2014.
Bloomberg officially launched his campaign for the Democratic Party's nomination in the 2020 presidential election on November 24, 2019, following weeks of speculation that he would join the race as a late entry.
Bloomberg attended Johns Hopkins University, where he joined the fraternity Phi Kappa Psi. In 1962, as a sophomore, he constructed the school mascot's (the blue jay's) costume. He graduated in 1964 with a Bachelor of Science degree in electrical engineering. In 1966, he graduated from Harvard Business School with a Master of Business Administration.
In March 2009, Forbes reported Bloomberg's wealth at $16 billion, a gain of $4.5 billion over the previous year, the world's biggest increase in wealth in 2009. At that time, there were only four fortunes in the U.S. that were larger (although the Walmart family fortune is split among four people). He had moved from 142nd to 17th in the Forbes list of the world's billionaires in only two years. Subsequently, Forbes reported his wealth at $22 billion, then $31 billion, then $43.3 billion, and ranked him 11th-, then 10th-, then 6th-richest in the U.S. As of November 2019, Bloomberg was the 14th richest person in the world, with a net worth estimated at $58 billion.
During his second term as the mayor of New York City, Bloomberg unveiled PlaNYC: A Greener, Greater New York on April 22, 2007, to fight global warming, protect the environment and prepare for the projected 1 million additional people expected to be living in the city by the year 2030.
Under PlaNYC, in just 6 years New York City reduced citywide greenhouse gas emissions by 19% since 2005 and was on track to achieve a 30% reduction ahead of the PlaNYC 2030 goal. In October 2007, as part of PlaNYC, Bloomberg launched the Million Trees NYC initiative, which aimed to plant and care for one million trees throughout the city in the next decade. In November 2015, New York City planted its one millionth tree, two years ahead of the original 10-year schedule.
In 2008, Bloomberg convened the New York City Panel on Climate Change (NPCC), an effort to prepare the city for climate change. In 2012, Travel + Leisure readers voted New York City the "Dirtiest American City," for having the most extant litter. Bloomberg has been involved in motivating other cities to make changes and has spoken about reducing carbon dioxide emissions, using cleaner and more efficient fuels, using congestion pricing in New York City, and encouraging public transportation.
Bloomberg unveiled the Special Initiative for Rebuilding and Resiliency (SIRR) in June 2013, after the city was affected by Hurricane Sandy in October 2012. The $20 billion initiative laid out extensive plans to protect New York City against future impacts of climate change. On September 26, 2013, Bloomberg announced that his administration's air pollution reduction efforts had resulted in the best air quality in New York City in more than 50 years. The majority of the air quality improvement was attributed to the phasing out of heavy polluting heating oils through New York's "Clean Heat" program. As a result of the improved air quality, the average life expectancy of New Yorkers had increased three years during Bloomberg's tenure, compared to 1.8 years in the rest of the country.
By 2017 Bloomberg donated 100 million dollars to the campaign Beyond Coal, that helped close over half of the US coal power stations, since 2011 when it was expanded due to his financial help. In 2017 he donated 64 million dollars more, the day after Scott Pruit began to abolish Obama's Clean Power Plan.
In 2019 Bloomberg with Sierra club and other organization launched "Beyond Carbon" an initiative to complete transition of USA to non fossil energy sources.
Michael Bloomberg with Jerry Brown launched and are leading the America's Pledge: a coalition of cities, businesses, states and more in the US to reduce greenhouse gas emissions The organization contains 68% of the GDP and 65% of the population of United States. In COP25 it presented a report named "ACCELERATING AMERICA’S PLEDGE" in which it explained that already existing commitments can cut USA greenhouse gas emissions by 19% by 2025 and by 25% by 2030. Accelerating local action can lower emissions by 37% by the year 2030 and if federal support will be adjusted by 49% by the same year relative to the level of the year 2005.

Barack Hussein Obama
Global Eco Army, Navy and Air Force
Chief Environmental Law Enforcement Officer
Barack Hussein Obama II (/bəˈrɑːk huːˈseɪn oʊˈbɑːmə/ (listen); born August 4, 1961) is an American attorney and politician who served as the 44th president of the United States from 2009 to 2017. A member of the Democratic Party, he was the first African American president of the United States. He previously served as a U.S. senator from Illinois from 2005 to 2008 and an Illinois state senator from 1997 to 2004.
Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. After graduating from Columbia University in 1983, he worked as a community organizer in Chicago. In 1988, he enrolled in Harvard Law School, where he was the first black president of the Harvard Law Review. After graduating, he became a civil rights attorney and an academic, teaching constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992
Quote: "CHANGE WILL NOT COME IF WE WAIT FOR some other person or some other time. WE ARE THE ONES WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR. WE ARE THE CHANGE THAT WE SEEK."
Quote: "Life doesn't count for much unless you're willing to do your small part to leave our children - all of our children - a better World. Even if it's difficult. Even if the work seems great. Even if we don't get very far in our lifetime."
Quote: "Your voice can change the world"
He represented the 13th district for three terms in the Illinois Senate from 1997 until 2004, when he ran for the U.S. Senate. He received national attention in 2004 with his March primary win, his well-received July Democratic National Convention keynote address, and his landslide November election to the Senate. In 2008, he was nominated for president a year after his campaign began, after a close primary campaign against Hillary Clinton.
After winning re-election by defeating Republican opponent Mitt Romney, Obama was sworn in for a second term in 2013. He advocated for gun control in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, indicating support for a ban on assault weapons, and issued wide-ranging executive actions concerning global warming and immigration.
Two years after graduating from Columbia, Obama moved from New York to Chicago when he was hired as director of the Developing Communities Project, a church-based community organization originally comprising eight Catholic parishes in Roseland, West Pullman, and Riverdale on Chicago's South Side.
He worked there as a community organizer from June 1985 to May 1988. He helped set up a job training program, a college preparatory tutoring program, and a tenants' rights organization in Altgeld Gardens. Obama also worked as a consultant and instructor for the Gamaliel Foundation, a community organizing institute.
Despite being offered a full scholarship to Northwestern University School of Law, Obama enrolled at Harvard Law School in the fall of 1988, living in nearby Somerville, Massachusetts. He was selected as an editor of the Harvard Law Review at the end of his first year, president of the journal in his second year, and research assistant to the constitutional scholar Laurence Tribe while at Harvard for two years. During his summers, he returned to Chicago, where he worked as a summer associate at the law firms of Sidley Austin in 1989 and Hopkins & Sutter in 1990. After graduating with a JD degree magna cum laude from Harvard in 1991, he returned to Chicago. Obama's election as the first black president of the Harvard Law Review gained national media attention and led to a publishing contract and advance for a book about race relations, which evolved into a personal memoir. The manuscript was published in mid-1995 as Dreams from My Father.
In 1991, Obama accepted a two-year position as Visiting Law and Government Fellow at the University of Chicago Law School to work on his first book. He then taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School for twelve years, first as a lecturer from 1992 to 1996, and then as a senior lecturer from 1996 to 2004.
He joined Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland, a 13-attorney law firm specializing in civil rights litigation and neighborhood economic development, where he was an associate for three years from 1993 to 1996, then of counsel from 1996 to 2004. In 1994, he was listed as one of the lawyers in Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank Fed. Sav. Bank, 94 C 4094 (N.D. Ill.). This class action lawsuit was filed in 1994 with Selma Buycks-Roberson as lead plaintiff and alleged that Citibank Federal Savings Bank had engaged in practices forbidden under the Equal Credit Opportunity Act and the Fair Housing Act. The case was settled out of court. Final judgment was issued on May 13, 1998, with Citibank Federal Savings Bank agreeing to pay attorney fees.
He sponsored a law that increased tax credits for low-income workers, negotiated welfare reform, and promoted increased subsidies for childcare. In 2001, as co-chairman of the bipartisan Joint Committee on Administrative Rules, Obama supported Republican Governor Ryan's payday loan regulations and predatory mortgage lending regulations aimed at averting home foreclosures.
During his 2004 general election campaign for the U.S. Senate, police representatives credited Obama for his active engagement with police organizations in enacting death penalty reforms
Obama sponsored legislation that would have required nuclear plant owners to notify state and local authorities of radioactive leaks, but the bill failed to pass in the full Senate after being heavily modified in committee. Regarding tort reform, Obama voted for the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005 and the FISA Amendments Act of 2008, which grants immunity from civil liability to telecommunications companies complicit with NSA warrantless wiretapping operations.
Obama held assignments on the Senate Committees for Foreign Relations, Environment and Public Works and Veterans' Affairs through December 2006. In January 2007, he left the Environment and Public Works committee and took additional assignments with Health, Education, Labor and Pensions and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. He also became Chairman of the Senate's subcommittee on European Affairs.
bama addressed supporters and volunteers at Chicago's McCormick Place after his reelection and said: "Tonight you voted for action, not politics as usual. You elected us to focus on your jobs, not ours. And in the coming weeks and months, I am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties."
On February 17, 2009, Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, a $787 billion economic stimulus package aimed at helping the economy recover from the deepening worldwide recession. The act includes increased federal spending for health care, infrastructure, education, various tax breaks and incentives, and direct assistance to individuals.
On September 30, 2009, the Obama administration proposed new regulations on power plants, factories, and oil refineries in an attempt to limit greenhouse gas emissions and to curb global warming.
On April 20, 2010, an explosion destroyed an offshore drilling rig at the Macondo Prospect in the Gulf of Mexico, causing a major sustained oil leak. Obama visited the Gulf, announced a federal investigation, and formed a bipartisan commission to recommend new safety standards, after a review by Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and concurrent Congressional hearings. He then announced a six-month moratorium on new deepwater drilling permits and leases, pending regulatory review. As multiple efforts by BP failed, some in the media and public expressed confusion and criticism over various aspects of the incident, and stated a desire for more involvement by Obama and the federal government.
In July 2013, Obama expressed reservations and said he "would reject the Keystone XL pipeline if it increased carbon pollution" or "greenhouse emissions." Obama's advisers called for a halt to petroleum exploration in the Arctic in January 2013. On February 24, 2015, Obama vetoed a bill that would have authorized the pipeline. It was the third veto of Obama's presidency and his first major veto.
Obama emphasized the conservation of federal lands during his term in office. He used his power under the Antiquities Act to create 25 new national monuments during his presidency and expand four others, protecting a total of 553,000,000 acres (224,000,000 ha) of federal lands and waters, more than any other U.S. president.
Many commentators credit Obama with averting a threatened depression and pulling the economy back from the Great Recession. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Obama administration created 11.3 million jobs from the month after his first inauguration to the end of his term.
A 2018 survey of historians by the American Political Science Association ranked Obama the 8th-greatest American President. Obama gained 10 spots from the same survey in 2015 from the Brookings Institution that ranked Obama the 18th-greatest American President.

In this way, we will cut the pollution created by industry, agriculture, energy, land and maritime transport."
Quote: "Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts."
Quote: "It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.
We can and must show everybody how to do it, to guide and teach the one who wants to change things in a sustainable way as soon as possible."
Unfortunately, we understood this just after we began to cause destruction to our Planet that keeps us alive.
We have to change this way of self-destruction. We have to change the way on
how we produce our energy with minimal environmental impact.
Until now, the engineers have created growing energy production systems without taking into account the size of energy producing machines / installations. And this energy production machines already created great
imbalances in right “functioning” of our Planet. It is the time to create same energy and much more with smaller machinery with minimum or even zero environment impact. This is what we want and we can do!
