i cant take credit for the design or invention of this but my plan is to generate electricity from my solid fuel stove using a thermoelectric generator
on a smaller more immediate scale im buying a candle powered mobile phone charger from tegpower.com

its a secular christmas and im celebrating on my dutch barge

heat and power is provided via a clean burning secondary combustion stove supplying electricity via a thermoelectric generator

electricity is also supplied via a tethered high altitude wind turbine and thin film solar panels on the roof.

we get fresh water from the sea or canal via reverse osmosis pump and travel using a skysail when at sea and electric or compressed air motor when on rivers or canals

seasonal food is… Continue

I'm eating food grown locally ..largely by people in my community...seasonal produce because it tastes better and doesnt have to be shipped miles

largely vegetarian because cattle consume so many resources and because I can no longer justify eating meat on humane grounds...i currently eat meat but cannot justify doing so (i am aware that i eat meat out of laziness ,cowardice and greed beacause it tastes good.)

Having taken the decision to only eat meat I have slaughtered myself my meat… Continue

i'm making a start by planting food in urban spaces in london

guerilla gardening means using any available public space for growing food for the benefit of anyone that wants it

vegetables and fruits can be just as attractive (or even more because of their usefullness) as flowers....it makes sense to plant fruits and vegetables in parks, public spaces,waste ground etc...for the benefit of all

imagine if children could walk to school and snack healthily on fresh nuts berries… Continue

learn 2

what we seem to have in the uk is not a lack of food security but an overabundance of s*** food that is causing huge problems with our nations health.....
i find it sad that we live in a society where gluttony and obesity are seen as socially acceptable...a society where it is acceptable for parents to abuse their children by feeding them processed food diets high in sugar,fat and salt and low in vitamins and nutrients......

I live in a sustainable community
we live off grid producing the power food and shelter we need and trading skills and resources for the things we cannot create ourselves
our community is full of people who dont want to wait for others to do things for them
we make things happen
we create art and music and love to learn and teach others
we build and invent and create

"There is enough energy in high altitude winds

to power civilization 100 times over; and sooner or later, we're going

to learn to tap into the power of winds and use it to run civilization

I choose Saul Griffith

Innovator and inventor Saul Griffith has a uniquely open approach to problem solving. Whether he's devising a way to slash the cost of prescription eyegla**** or teaching science through cartoons, Griffith

makes things and then shares his ideas with the world

A proponent of open-source information, he established Instructables , an open website showing how to make an…

If somebody already invented it you dont have to

there are loads of existing technologies out there that could be used in developing countries

the key is giving people the skills to produce things themselves..using the resources they have available

its easy to teach people to build turbines to produce power from readily available scrap ...that power can be used for lighting,to run low power computers/electrical appliances and to produce hydrogen gas via electrolysis of… Continue

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***tances 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.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More
