A crash course in changing the world.

Dover UK

Known for the amazing white chalk cliffs, Dover is also known for its amazing natural fog. Now "Fog is the same as a cloud except that it touches the ground, whereas a cloud has a base that is above the ground. When a cloud is moved by the wind and flows over and around a mountain, fog is present wherever the cloud touches the terrain. To a meteorologist, fog is present when the visibility is less than 1000 ft (about 300 m). What is important in the fog collection process is that fog is composed of tiny liquid water droplets from 1 to 40 micrometers (μm) in diameter. A typical droplet diameter is 10 μm."

"There is typically from 0.05 to 0.5 grams of liquid water in a cubic meter of fog."
(attribution Fog Quest http://www.fogquest.org/index.html)

Now the cliffs run along the coastline between approximately: Latitude 51°06'N, Longitude 1°14'E and Latitude 51°12'N, Longitude 1°24'E between the UK and France. Quite a long run, and there are behind the cliff face miles of hidden tunnels that were created during the Middle Ages and later played a role in the defence of Britain during the Napoleonic Wars. The tunnels were later enlarged to become the Secret Wartime Tunnels beneath Dover Castle. Now, those same tunnels have been converted to being spill ways to cisterns to hold the amazing amount of Water in the English Fog.

So for the last week, we have been working on Setting up fog catching nets , similar to these


found in Peru.


However our fog catchers will use a art technique called pointillism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pointillism)

to have the catchers emblazoned with pictures of children from all over the British Isles. Colorful banners will fly from the top of each pole, and on the first day, all the children who sent in there pictures and there families will be part of the water celebration in Dover.


It will be an amazing day...I hope to see you all there...

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. 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

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

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.
