It had a great impact upon me at the time so when the science fair projects were due, my own was a drawing of the complete…

These large water purification sites were used to analyze water, then the right amount of treatments are added, filteration takes place to remove large particulates, then aeriation and exposure to light were used to reuse water that came from sewers that brought back the community…

IMAGINE [3] POWER SHIFT-Solar Cookers and Money in the Bank

It is the Fourth of July-Independence Day, the year 2020, on the beach of Emerald Isle, North Carolina, where our family comes from all parts of the US and the World to celebrate our Country's Freedom and its Democracy.

The fuel of the times was simple, manufactored coals that had been moistened with…

LEARN [3] Power Shift-Monitizing Carbon offsets

I discovered David Palella and is wonderful solar powered cook stoves when I began to look at ways to improve the quality of health in Nigeria. I am particularly interested in nutrition and its impact on health and well being, so his use solar power to cook when that would otherwise not have been possible was a delight to find.

For instance, on March 2, 2010, a food recall was posted on the United States Department of Agriculture's branch website, the Food Safety and Inspection Service. The short version of the…

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

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.

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.
