ALYI EV Battery And Charging Station New Details Out Next Tuesday

Avatar

Published

on

Dallas, TX – September 18, 2020 – OTC PR WIRE – Alternet Systems, Inc. (OTC PINK: ALYI) reconfirmed that on Tuesday next week, September 22, 2020, the company will publish new details on the electric vehicle battery and electric vehicle charging station components to ALYI’s overall electric mobility ecosystem.

In addition to its own groundbreaking electric vehicle (EV) battery innovation progress, the company is exploring solutions with Samsung SDI and Gegadyne Energy.

ALYI’s electric mobility ecosystem solution for Sub-Saharan Africa also includes a planned EV charging station Network.

ALYI has timed their Battery Day overview to coincide with Tesla’s schedule  “Battery Day,”

ALYI’s electric mobility focus in Sub-Saharan Africa is founded on bringing environmentally sustainable transportation resources to a region where per capita transportation infrastructure is substantially under-resourced. At the same time, ALYI intends to develop and deploy the subject sustainable transportation solution in a manner that optimizes the economic benefit to the local economy.

The Rideshare ReVolt Electric Motorcycle is just the starting place for ALYI’s long-term electric mobility vision.  Instead of designing specific future products in an isolated lab, ALYI has designed a process to bring a community of stakeholders together with ALYI’s own design team to collectively contribute to the future of electric mobility in Sub-Sharan Africa and beyond.

To motivate and inspire collaboration in a rational electric mobility evolutionary process, ALYI has architected an annual electric mobility symposium and conference around an electric auto race as an anchor event.  The annual event will generate revenue contributing to the local economy, at the same time contributing to the evolutionary development of future electric mobility innovations.  The expense of research and development will at least be offset by revenue from the annual event and potentially, research and development may become a profit center.

ALYI Electric Mobility Ecosystem Participation

ALYI’s electric mobility ecosystem has been designed to invite wide participation with the catalyst launching the ecosystem into perpetual motion built around a planned initial cryptocurrency offering (ICO) organized by ALYI funding partner RevoltTOLKEN.

The RevoltTOKEN cryptocurrency is structured to incorporate the holder as a stakeholder into the ALYI electric mobility ecosystem.

The RevoltTOKEN cryptocurrency is a utility token with redeemable value into the ALYI electric mobility ecosystem.

All interested in purchasing RevoltTOKEN cryptocurrency are encouraged to thoroughly review the white paper currently in a draft form and available on the RevoltTOKEN website (www.revolttoken.com) where the cryptocurrency redemption options are listed.

The whitepaper also details the overall vision of the ALYI electric mobility ecosystem in partnership with those becoming RevoltTOKEN stakeholders.

RevoltTOKEN is prepared to promptly move forward with the planned ICO.  The ICO date and details will be forthcoming in several soon to be published future updates.

In the meantime, any parties interested in the pre-ICO purchase of RevoltTOKEN cryptocurrency can contact the company by email at ir@revolttoken.com to explore pre-ICO incentives and opportunities.

Among others, these risks include the expectation that any of the companies mentioned herein will achieve significant sales, the failure to meet schedule or performance requirements of the companies’ contracts, the companies’ liquidity position, the companies’ ability to obtain new contracts, the emergence of competitors with greater financial resources and the impact of competitive pricing.

Bill Gates warns “climate change is an even harder problem than the coronavirus pandemic;” estimates 3 million people could die by 2100 if climate change is not stopped

Avatar

Published

Back in August, we wrote about Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates after he warned of another looming crisis that could be worse than the coronavirus. In his blog notes, Gates estimates that 3 million people could die by 2100 if climate change is not stopped.

More than a month later, Gates continues his gloom and doom warning about the danger of climate change. In an interview with  Bloomberg’s Erik Schatzker, Gates answered the question about the overlaps between the challenge of fighting the pandemic and fighting climate change. Gates said:

“The pandemic illustrates that government didn’t look out for us despite the warnings that were out there. Climate fits that same paradigm. Sadly, the problem gets worse and worse, and there isn’t a solution like a vaccine where you can spend tens of billions of dollars and bring it to a close. No, climate change is much harder. The damage that will be done every year will be greater than what we’ve seen during this pandemic.

When asked about the conspiracy theorists who believe that you helped to create and spread the coronavirus might be easy to dismiss if there weren’t so many of them. Gates said:

“It’s so crazy to suggest the opposite. We make vaccines, and that has saved millions of lives. To somehow say that a vaccine is malign or that the deaths aren’t really taking place, it’s surprising to me how interesting that is, and it spreads far more quickly than the truth. How should these social media platforms try to avoid being the source of these weirdly interesting falsehoods? That’s a debate or discussion we’re going to have to continue to have.”

In his earlier blog post, Gates wrote at the time that considering that “more than 600,000 people are known to have died from COVID-19 worldwide” as of August 3, Gates estimated that on an annualized basis, “that is a death rate of 14 per 100,000 people.”

Gates later compared and projected what the consequence would be if climate change is not addressed. Gate wrote:

How does that compare to climate change? Within the next 40 years, increases in global temperatures are projected to raise global mortality rates by the same amount—14 deaths per 100,000. By the end of the century, if emissions growth stays high, climate change could be responsible for 73 extra deaths per 100,000 people. In a lower emissions scenario, the death rate drops to 10 per 100,000.

Gates went to infer that, “by 2060, climate change could be just as deadly as COVID-19, and by 2100 it could be five times as deadly.” Gates projected that by 2100, 600,000 times five could die if climate change is not addressed.
