It is Oct. 6, 2020 and my daughter's 30th birthday! I am very excited, because she will be flying home from Africa to spend her birthday with us.
After work I will run home to do a hurried last-minute cleaning of our house (which runs on a combination of macrobiofuel for the HVAC and solar power for the lights, ect.). Then, I will rush to the bakery in my car (which runs on the fulvic acid from humate) to pick up the cake. By the time I get home and prepare the meal, she will just be…
This season takes place in Africa, the 2nd in Brazil and the 3rd should be a general topic all over the world! I would like to discuss about the green power. Because in the 21st century there will be a congestion of energy. For this reason we have to devolop different ways of sustainable energy for the future. Also in the time wheras India and China growing up with full strength, the attention on environment and natural energy has to be full focussed.
In the year of 2020 I will take a stand for environment protection. In this case, I will celebrate a special day for supporting the sustainable energy. This day should show the german population how easy you could produce energy by yourself. I will try to catch lots of people to a huge public place, where they should produce energy by riding a bicycle. Today we already have bike-constructions for producing energy by riding it. Have a look at this video…
Can you imagine what the world would be like without cars, scooters or MRTs because of the depletion of energy? The system of human society would be completely ruined. It would be a total chaos. To prevent all this disaster from happening, scientists started brainstorming about the possibilities to solve the energy crisis. And a hundred years later, the situation of energy crisis is solved. After years of thinking, scientists finally came up with an idea of using the techniques of Nano… Continue

Probably everyone thinks it’s horrible to face the future without energy. But I think it will also bring us some bright sides, too. The following are my thoughts about the changing of the world and the new life style of the future.
Traffic systems will change the most if oil is no longer available. People will have a hard time while scientist haven’t figure… Continue
Bill McKibben and 350.org have called for an international work day to stop climate change on October 10, 2010. I have proposed to him that there should 350.org should provide an online solutions architecture in order to promote and support those practical demonstrations of climate solutions on October 10 and to make sure they continue after that day.
In 2020 I look forward to living in Southern California. My home will be energy neutral, meaning that it will create as much energy as it uses. Furthermore, my consumption of goods will hardly leave a footprint as most items will be recycled and repurposed into new items. Food will be partially provided by my own garden and I will enjoy the bounty of agriculture provided by California.
One of the changes I am researching for my own life is setting up a bike-powered energy station in my home to charge low-energy items like cell phones, small rechargeable batteries and so on.
But there's also the potential for using the mechanical energy directly for larger items. For example, you could use a bike to power a blender or food processor by hooking the gears of the bike wheels to the gears in the blades. You could also use that rotary power to pump water, spin out salad… Continue

It's harvest time at the community garden and everyone is pitching in. Tonight there will be a big block party and in keeping with the sustainable ethos of the community garden, it will be as sustainably powered as we can make it.
All day long the cooks have been cooking up a storm to lay out a spread for everyone who's celebrating. Luckily, there's still plenty of sunlight this time of year so the solar ovens have been in constant use since the fog broke this morning. Bread,… Continue

One of best times I have had!!! I just got back from a birthday party that took place in twenty different countries! One of the ways we have connecting since launching Cloud+Classroom, is by having network birthday parties online. The best part is connecting with new people, when their birthdays come up. Today, I just had the best time connecting with new people who share my birthday month, and its amazing that the idea to have these just…
When I first started this mission I was struck by the irony that I was using an energy-guzzling computer to try to solve energy issues. The world over laptops and other personal electronic devices are consuming an increasingly significant portion of our energy supply. According to the US Department of Energy, home electronics accounted for 7.2% of total electricity consumption for the…
Saul Griffith dreams of giant kite turbines creating huge amounts of
clean, renewable energy.
Wind is the second largest renewable resource after solar. But the majority of wind power is in high altitudes, well above 300 feet - beyond the reach of today's wind turbines. We don't have a technology (yet) capable of tapping into this rich source of wind energy.
This idea was described by Miles L. Loyd in his paper "Crosswind Kite Power". He… Continue
In 2020 on Childrens day in Japan, I will be travelling to my grandmothers house, in hybrid powered bus. The have been radical changes in Japan by now. Most things are being powered by renewable energy. At my grandmothers house we used a solar cooker to cook our food, and also since we live on a farm the houses are being powered by spining windmills. This is my story of how i see my future life Japan
Most PC´s have coolers as a part of their cooling system. A cooler, is a small fan that extracts air from inside the PC and sends it out in order to avoid overheating.
They usually have enough force as to move a small windmill. My idea is to develop a device, that can be easily installed in the back of any PC, which would reconvert the eolian energy into electrical energy through a little dynamo.
Then, you can use the dynamo to charge batteries, a cellphone or a… Continue
When you think about it, money is already a representation of energy. You get paid for spending your energy at work, and you pay for the energy it takes to create a product and bring it to you. Therefore it just makes sense to use available energy as a sort of gold standard…
Cochabamba - Bolivia, April 2020.
Here is the “resiliense map” of my city, reflecting 10 years of efforts by Development Managers, Businesses AND CITIZENS as part of the Socially-responsible City Planning Programme:…
