Clean Water Plan

Currently the Great Lakes provide water for 30 million people. Have you ever seen Lake Michigan, it's gross looking water. Obama recently just pledged $475 million to Rescue the Great Lakes. This plan includes cleaning the water, rescuing native species, and getting rid of the invasive species like the Asian Carp, which is destroying the Great Lakes. The Goal is to make the Great lakes like they once were, GREAT. I may not agree with everything Obama does, but this is a pretty good… Continue

Simpler Solar Power Article

I just read this article from Popular Science about simpler Solar Power. We are now producing cheaper, thinner solar panels. One of the examples was a messenger bag that could charge a cell phone, and the others where new designs of roof panels. Read it.

Communities (Urban)

There is a reason I love living in a big urban environment. Urban environments [apartments] create more space because they stack homes on top of each other. Apartment complexes equal beauty to me. They cost less to heat, and are much more affordable. Imagine a city without suburbs, in place of the suburbs we place parks, and natural agriculture. Apartments allow us to share. We share our homes and can grow closer to our neighbors.

Apartments = Community =…

Taming the Desert Pt. 2

So I was watching this video from the TED conference [It's a Think Tank], and I saw an idea for sand dune homes. Apparently you can actually make sandstone with bacteria and sand. The idea became this: Build a sandstone wall across the Sahara to create homes for the retreating natives, and to prevent the expansion of the desert with a wind breaker. Wind breakers stop the sand storms from… Continue

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.
