Sustainable Energy is the key to a prosperous future.

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…

"Morality represents the way people would like the world to work--whereas economics represents how it actually does work." Author unknown

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.…

Ontario Sustainable Energy Association

Hi Folks,

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

sunlight relocation

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

A hidden gem: Agent Liz McLellan and her hyperlocavore.com project

Hyperlocavore 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.

This is a project… Continue

Al Gore

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

Sustainable furnishings for the world

Naturescast is an innovation of using Mother Earth's natural scrap materials like twigs, branches and what not that are used to make… Continue

Future of Currency

The experiment that I believe will have the greatest impact on the future is the concept of Micro-Loans. The largest purveyor of these loans is Kiva.org. The idea behind micro-loans is small loans, even as small as $25 to help fledgling businesses that can't get loans anywhere else either because of their location, business, the amount they want to borrow, or a host of other reasons. All businesses need loans for various reasons. Some just to buy more products to sell. This allows many…See More
