EVOKE Season 2 - my two cents

What I'm having for dinner on March 10, 2020

In my post-apocalyptic 2020, peak oil, bio-engineered epidemics, widespread strife and economic collapse mean that virtually all food is sourced locally. No more Florida oranges, or Kobe beef, at least not in my neighborhood. The cost of getting the food across the country or across the world, without it spoiling, would be a literal fortune.



(What can I say, I just finished reading Paolo Bacigalupi's The Wind-Up Girl :)

Case Study: Using indigenous medicine demand to power reforestation efforts in Sichuan, China

I read about:

"INTEGRATION OF QIANG ETHNO-BOTANICAL KNOWLEDGE AND PRACTICES INTO A REFORESTATION PROJECT, AND RESTORES A DEGRADED WATERSHED IN CHINA"

On the KIVU case study page (no direct link, you just have to scroll or search for it, unfortunately).



I also found more details on the case at http://www.unesco.org/most/bpik15.htm, including budget, and some brief analysis on things… Continue

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.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
