General Intro

This site presents essays and grant lists from the Foundation's 1998 Annual Report, released in July 1999.

A Sustainable World . . .

"During the last few decades, humans have emerged as a new force of nature. We are modifying physical, chemical and biological systems in new ways, at faster rates, and over larger spatial scales than ever recorded on Earth. Humans have unwittingly embarked upon a grand experiment with our planet. The outcome of this experiment is unknown, but has profound implications for all of life on Earth."

A Secure World . . .

"To achieve long-term sustainablility and security, states must employ energy technologies and services that are renewable and that avoid nuclear power's vulnerability to weapons proliferation and terrorism. In the near term, regional cooperation can help immensely in bringing interim fuels such as natural gas to energy-hungry markets."
