Cmdr. C. B. “Scott” Jones, PhD, USN retired
Cmdr. Jones is the founder and president of the Peace and
Emergency Action Coalition for Earth. The principal function of
P.E.A.C.E. is to oversee the development of the global Center for
Sustainable Peace and Development system. Previous to this he
was co-founder and president of the Human Potential Foundation.
This was established in 1989, and conducted research into all
conditions of humankind: physiological, psychological and spiritual,
to assist the individual to achieve the highest levels of human
potential in body, mind and spirit in order to compete and cooperate
at personal excellence throughout life. Prior to this position he was
Special Assistant to Senator Claiborne Pell from January 1985 until
March 1991. Retiring as a Commander in the U.S. Navy, approximately half of his thirty-year naval
career was spent in intelligence service overseas and in the United States. In post-navy careers he has
taught at the university level and worked in the private sector research and development community
involved in U.S. government sponsored projects for the Defense Nuclear Agency, Defense Intelligence
Agency, U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command, and other organizations.
In 1989, he and Sen. Claiborne Pell co-founded the Human Potential Foundation that undertook a number
of research projects. These included a joint effort with the Chinese Academy of Somatic Science in
accelerated bone healing using qi gong; a sponsored symposium conducted by Russian medical scientists
on psychoanalytical and psychocorrection computer technologies; a survey of attitudes of medical
professionals toward death and dying; translating Chinese of the book: Collected Works on Qi Gong
Science. Under the Center for Interspecies Communications, the Foundation conducted Projects Neptune
Helper I, II dolphin research with Atlantic Bottlenose and Spotted dolphins.
A major two-year program funded by Laurance Rockefeller was completed with an international
conference, When Cosmic Cultures Meet, in Washington, D.C. in May 1995. At the conference a wide
spectrum of academic disciplines and interests assessed the implications, preparations and responses
for the time when there is no ambiguity about the understanding that higher intelligences from cosmic
cultures are meeting. In November 1998, the Human Potential Foundation was dissolved and its
principal undertaking, a global peace initiative, transferred to the newly established Peace and
Emergency Action Coalition for Earth, Inc.
Current Programs in P.E.A.C.E. Inc. The principal program of P.E.A.C.E. Inc is the establishment of a
global system of Centers for Sustainable Peace and Development. Over seven years of planning and
consultation with academic, political, spiritual, military, intelligence and business leaders has lead to the
current system design. In November 2002, the University of Jordan announced its decision to host a
Center. Discussions with other universities around the world are under way.
A second program is a recommendation made to President George W. Bush to establish a cabinet level
Peace Advisor position, and to encourage his global counterparts to do the same. A third program is
draft legislation for a federally funded international scholarship program to establish a Professional
Peaceworker Corps. A fourth program is a proposed Constitutional amendment that would additionally
designate the President “the principal Peace Maker of the United States.” This would provide a legal
basis for the institutionalization of peace in the United States.
