Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

As I mentioned in my blog post here: http://www.urgentevoke.com/profiles/blog/list?user=0z7skezorcdw0 , Venezuela is having an energy crisis right this minute.  Not in 2020, right now.  I thought I might start a discussion thread to brainstorm on the topic.  I'd like help in gathering information, coming up with ideas, and trying to spark some actual, tangible real-life solutions that real-life Venezuelans can use to improve the energy situation that is even now starting to slow and harm their economy.  If possible, the following things are needed.   First, reports from actual people from Venezuela.  The news over in America at least is, shockingly enough, America-centric.  What is the government doing, what is it like living with the energy rationing?  That will help with the second goal of gathering as much information on causes and conditions that need to be considered.  What is being done already, are their special considerations to consider?  For example, Venezuela and America are not on friendly terms.  It would be quite dangerous for American citizens to go in, agent-style, to try and solve problems.  But not everyone here is American, now are we?  The third goal is trying to come up with solutions, on a citizen level, on a town level, on a country level.  Solutions to help them through until the drought is over, and solutions to reduce energy insecurity for the long-term. 

Any idea can be helpful, but the best ideas are the ones that are non-general, broken down into action plans involving resources and work needed.  Let's educate ourselves.  What's the average income in the capital?  In the country?  Where is the highest use coming from and can it be converted?  Are there economic analysts that can be interviewed on the subject? 

This thread is for free-form brainstorm and discussion, although the less "Yeah, we should do something" and the more "Here's this fact", the better.  When a picture starts to come together, I will start organizing an entry on the wiki: http://urgentevoke.wikia.com/wiki/Urgent_Evoke_Wiki .  I would appreciate help with this.  Preferably trained help.  Correct me where I'm wrong, supply information I'm lacking.

Can someone please make a sister post to this one in Spanish? Not a direct translation, but with a similar call to action?

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
