Rain barrel for a data cloud

Geographically speaking, I live in a very safe area. No nearby volcanoes or fault lines. Flooding and fire might be a possibility but the infrastructure to proactively deal with these problems are in place.

The greatest threat in the natural disaster category are tornadoes but they are small, infrequent, and you don't really need a warning system to know that there's trouble brewing: the sky turns a strange sick colour that lets you know that you better find cover… Continue

Common Ground and Local Distinctiveness

The example of Maasi Weather Forecasting in Tanzania in The Traditional Knowledge Case Studies reminded me of one of my favourite environmental groups: Common Ground.

Common Ground's work is varied but can be based back to its tenant of "celebrate local distinctiveness". If we don't discover, care, and nurture about what makes a place unique, we will end up living in what has taken over most of…

A city built on rock and roll would be structurally unsound

The first result from my online search for "windsor ontario disaster plan" was for the Archives and Library where I am employed. This did not reassure.

But with some digging, I found a link to the City of Windsor Emergency Response Plan Bylaw (#98-2005 as amended, December 7, 2009) [pdf]. As I scanned through it, I kept seeing the word, radio which gave me pause.

The bylaw specifies who is in the Community… Continue

not sure about
"cities are our future"
i think they are our past having outlined their use...
and thus the notion of "citizen" would also be eroded
and the wisdom of natural living be learned...

i like your 1 million solution...
i think the question would be better if it were 1 million in a small area
imagine what a million-sized town could do if they worked together...?

despite our difference
like everyone in this game
i think we share more similarities

you are a good person :)
and i hope at the end of this game
they don't just pick top scores or someone out of the hat from the top 100
and we have a way to personally recommend
because you'd get my vote :)

be well!
