Fertilizer

I mostly live in Holland and here the following is possibly even more relevant than elsewhere:



Climate change is only one part of the story. Inorganic fertilizer is the other part. Most of the current world agricultural production relies on it and the productivity gains that have been realized through its use, are unprecedented.

Hero and the collaborative

My hero is a group. A small group of dedicated, clever minds as they can be found all over Africa. They are themselves surprised to find their shared desires, ideas and ambitions. And they hotly debate their differences. Then they act. Check out the futureLAB video to see one such group in action. Some of my heroes in action.

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

India Water home

The secret was living on the water via boats common in many developing countries like Myanmar. This is a real Indian boat home made of wood and this provides a shelter for many peoples around the world.
