Follow the money. How many times have you heard that phrase?
You've likely never heard follow the coal, or oil, and certainly not solar.
Money is the single most important unit of energy.
People have come to think of energy as oil, or coal, of even a unit of electrical power. It's not. It's money. More importantly, it's currency - the printed reflection of energy, and power.

Episode Five: Fiat Currencies,
from the novel - The Survival Guide For The One Percent
Episode Five is about money. It's about how it came to exist; why it is vital to be in the business of owning it, and about all who do, came to be.
I have become an agnostic, so I should acknowledge that, before I include the following.
All the way back to the time of Christ, those who wrote of his activities included sections about his attitude towards money changers.
There was a realization that any accepted unit of currency could become the most valuable unit of power, and influence. If you get yourself involved directly within the flow of that energy, you can control the speed, and influence the direction of any economy, or civilization.
I suppose that if Jesus Christ existed, and if he was as wise as has been described of him, his actions of purging the money changers demonstrated, over two thousand years ago, that there can't be a small group of people allowed to exist, if they are capable of influencing such a high percentage of all activities.
If selling, or creating money, or currencies becomes a formal business practice, it elevates this small group of people to a station, within our society, with far too much power, and influence over all of our activities. This has been known for thousands of years, and it is written that Jesus Christ warned us all of it.
European nations have been under the yoke of such organizations, since the time of Christ, and have grown steadily more powerful, over the last two thousand years.
That yoke tightened severely with the creation of, and by certain texts within, the Treaty Of Versailles. Portions of that treaty included the creation of the Bank For International Settlements. This was the bank into which Germany was required to pay, and deposit reparations for the costs, and damages caused by World War One. For more information on this bank, please click here for a description from Wikipedia.
Texts showing in white are links to Wikipedia articles about the highlighted topics.
Here is the first paragraph from Wikipedia's description: The Bank for International Settlements (BIS; French: Banque des reglements internationaux, BRI) is an international organization of central banks which "fosters international monetary and financial cooperation and serves as a bank for central banks". The BIS carries out its work through subcommittees, the secretariats it hosts and through an annual general meeting of all member banks. It also provides banking services, but only to central banks and other international organizations. It is based in Basel, Switzerland.
After Germany waged the second world war, there was little need for its original charter, or purpose, so it changed both. It became the yoke on all international banking.
I highlight "central banks" because you need to know that the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) is, amazingly enough, the bank for all Cental Banks, such as, and including the United States Federal Reserve Bank.
Yep. Our United States Federal Reserve Bank is a privately owned bank, and controlled by these subcommittees, and secretariats of a bank based in Basel, Switzerland. Does this make you feel more comfortable? It should be less comforting to know that this bank's Board has not seen fit to elect a U.S. citizen as the CEO, or Chair of the Board, since 1935. Regardless of whom the President of the United States appoints as the Chair of the Federal Reserve, that person is still subordinate to the Board of the BIS.
This system of central banks is world wide, and became an international system of owning the world's money supply. The creation of the Euro made the system far stronger by creating a single currency for all of the EU nations.
Who is the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), and how could a foreign bank control our Federal Reserve System, and banks?
First, here is some propaganda from the BIS website:
Established on 17 May 1930, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) is the world's oldest international financial organization. The BIS has 60 member central banks, representing countries from around the world that together make up about 95% of world GDP.
To repeat some of the paragraph above:
The BIS has 60 member central banks, and they make up about 95% of world GDP.
You don't get 95% of the world's GDP, without one of your member central banks being from the United States of America.
From Wikipedia about when, and why the BIS was established:
The BIS was established on May 17, 1930, by an intergovernmental agreement by Germany, Belgium, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Japan, the United States and Switzerland.
The BIS was originally intended to facilitate reparations imposed on Germany by the Treaty of Versailles after World War I. The need to establish a dedicated institution for this purpose was suggested in 1929 by the Young Committee, and was agreed to in August of that year at a conference at The Hague.
The BIS became the central bank to all central banks, throughout the industrialized world. Even the U.S. Federal Reserve System is a chartered bank of the BIS. This bank sets monetary policy for 95% of the business activities throughout the world. This also means the this bank's Board of Directors sets that policy. It comes down to 95% of the world's business activities throughout the world is significantly impacted by only 21 people, and only two of them are from the United States.
There has not been a United States citizen elected as the Chair of the Board, nor a United States citizen elected as the bank's CEO, since 1935.
United States monetary policy is set by the Board of the BIS, regardless of who is appointed by the United States President as the Chair of the Federal Reserve System, and banks.
