A crash course in changing the world.

Energy Source That Covers Most of the Earth

yes, the ocean.

though the combination of gravity effects from the moon and other large bodies and its own mass and volume, it is one of the great resources of energy that remains mostly untapped. clean and renewable, power obtained from the ocean could easily power the entire planet several times over with just a fraction of its potential energy.

of course, great care and attention must be made towards the possible problems that could be produced. it carries much of the same concerns of any other power source, though it is massively better than any non-renewable resource. if too much power is drawn from the waves at any one point, it could change the balance of the ecosystem of an area. this power source should be used in tandem with the numerous other renewable resources such as wind, solar and refuse/waste/recycled power.

as with many other renewable energy technologies, corrupt governments and corporations have historically used their power unethically and illegally to hinder and stop progress in the research and development of ocean power. Salter's Duck is a prime example. in the 1974, Professor Stephen Salter at Edinburgh University developed a brilliantly simple method of harvesting the energy of waves. it was proven to be cheaper in both cost and production than even nuclear energy with just a prototype. corrupt government officials and corporations worked tirelessly to spread LIES about his wonderful invention. he and his team fought for over a decade, until they ultimately disbanded due to the sheer power of the corrupt entities.


now a new generation of ocean power entrepreneurs have taken the challenge, with some excellent results and successes. Marine Current Turbines, led by the technology and vision of Peter Fraenkel, is a company based in Bristol, UK. their SeaGen uses what is essentially underwater windmills to generate power. they already have one in use in Northern Ireland, generating 1 MW by itself.


though Pelamis Wave Power has met its share of problems due to investors feeling the brunt of a poor global economy, this is technology that is definitely worth a look as well. it uses a technology that resembles a jointed 'snake', where the movement caused by waves is converted to power.


remember, seek the TRUTH.

problem with water turbines is that salt water is highly corrosive

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

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

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.
