How to Sustainably Develop the Arctic, by Supplying Green Hydrogen, Fresh Water, and Healthy Food to the World, While Mitigating the Negative Effects of Anthropogenic Climate Change


By Jeff Krehmer, P.Eng.

Respark Your Life podcast interview with the author.

Anthropogenic global warming is one of the most talked about issues today. Scientists are calling for an end to fossil fuel use, but where will we get the energy to replace those fuels? Governments are committing their nations to net zero carbon emissions by 2050, introducing carbon taxes and pledging trillions of dollars to develop new technologies, but is that even possible?

At the same time, the world is struggling with water shortages, more extreme weather, malnutrition, pollution, overfishing, melting polar ice, and possible radical climate change. Global demand for energy, everything from cooling our homes to crypto-currency mining and data-warehousing, seems insatiable.

The United Nations has 17 Sustainable Development Goals. This book describes a realistic way to reach all of those goals with a focus on these ones: No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health and Well-being, Clean Water and Sanitation, Affordable and Clean Energy, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Industry Innovation and Infrastructure, Climate Action, Life Below Water, Sustainable Cities and Communities, Responsible Consumption and Production, Life on Land, Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions, and, Partnerships for the Goals.

“The future is positive. Unfortunately, so many children are being taught that we’re destroying the planet, mankind is responsible for all the problems in the world. We can use our intelligence, make the world a better place to live in harmony with it” – Jeff Krehmer

This book is for you if you are tired of hearing doom and gloom predictions about how humanity is destroying the world and you want to take part in transitioning the world to sustainable energy, food, water and raw material development.

It is possible to use modern technology to enhance natural processes to reduce sea levels, increase polar ocean ice, produce healthy, sustainable food, supply the world with potable water, capture atmospheric carbon dioxide, and replace fossil fuels with fuels derived from renewable sources.

This book offers a vision of a future where food is healthy and abundant. Where clean potable water gets to those who need it. Where human caused air pollution is a thing of the past. A future where inexpensive, abundant energy is available to all. The result should be greater peace, prosperity and well-being for everyone, if political systems will allow and support it


Jeff Krehmer is a visionary mechanical engineer whose mindset and courage to step forward with optimism and a solution is what this world needs. Jeff believes we can use our intelligence to make the world a better place. He talks about a technology called Polar Energy Platforms or PEPs that harness energy from the ocean to provide for the planet while simultaneously contributing to global cooling, food global supplies, and ecological balance.
