As you can see from the picture, Hangzhou is a city with nature beauties.
The sustainability strategies of Hangzhou contains lots of stuff. I personally pick up two interesting points: tea and lake.

Currently there is no cost efficient alternative to fossil fuels. Cheap Fossil fuel is the foundation of the global quality of life. Without it all modern production chains stop. To maintain our quality of life we must replace fossil fuels. So, I use the term “efficient alternative” to mean a system of energy production… Continue

I'm been looking for an economic system which services us vs us genuflecting to it since college. As a young student of history and religion, I became aware of the cycles of booms (usually unsustainable bubbles) and the long protractive busts which were so detrimental and devastating.
Here is a doc**entary video I just found related to a solution being tried in Argentina.… Continue

For this week's Urgent Evoke, I chose to learn about the types of sustainable energy projects available local to me in South-Eastern Ontario. Some are obvious. Last year a large wind-turbine farm
was erected very close to me on Wolfe Island. It is 86 wind-turbines and generates almost 200 MW of electricity.
The largest solar panel farm in Canada is also located near me in Stone… Continue

Most of what I do is already powered by renewable and sustainable resources. I even had my computer and lights hooked up to an 80 watt solar panel for a while (but housing problems and marital problems led to my solar panel, my controller, and me all being in different places at the moment, so that's not an option right now, but in the future solar will definitely be my main power source for the couple of electric-powered things I use).
But for this mission, I was able to find one… Continue

is a free matchmaking service for garden space and gardeners. And, as far as I'm concerned, it is one of the most brilliant, simple, and powerful collaborative
projects I've ever seen! It will help bring the valuable resources of volunteer gardeners and underused yard spaces together for making local food available to more people.

I picked Al Gore as my social innovator role model, because of his clean energy and climate change advocacies. His doc**entary, The Inconvenient Truth, not only exposes the harsh environmental realities in the status quo but also provides for solutions to prevent further environmental degradation. I added him up on Facebook. I intend to read more about him and his advocacies at www.algore.com
. I also plan to buy a ticket to his lecture about The Inconvenient… Continue

People often wonder if we could turn anything sustainable. Energy right now is the main concern for all because it is one of the most important essentials for most of the things that we use regularly to work. What about sustainable things that do not require energy but are made through sustainable ways? Introducing, Naturescast by Natures Legacy.
Naturescast is an innovation of using Mother Earth's natural scrap materials like twigs, branches and what not that are used to make… Continue
