Reducing Energy Use: Why This Must Happen First

we simply must reduce the amount of energy we are consuming, especially those of us like myself that live in the worst offending countries. why?

world consumption of energy is projected to grow by as much as 44% by some sources.

at the current growing rate of consumption, it will become impossible to power the cities of the Earth no matter what technology we are using. non-renewable resources are running out quickly. the Obama administration admitted that the oil reserves in the new places opened up for drilling would only last 5 years. 5. years. and they are willing to destroy the earth to do that, instead of making a better initiative to REDUCE energy consumption.

even the best and most sustainable technologies can damage the earth if they are too great in number. solar panels could take too much heat and dramatically cool the earth; very bad. too many wind generators will affect weather and climate. ocean power generators could damage the ecosystem. the list goes on an on.

we waste power. many corporations have little reason to try to make products that consume less energy, unless people demand them to lower their electricity bills. our waste goes much further than that, however. we are all guilty of buying toys and trinkets out of want; much of these also have redundant and useless packaging that consumed even more energy to create. i am guilty; i have a decent computer that runs OK; i own games and DVDs. i am not saying we should all just give everything up (though that would probably be a very good thing). we should think a bit more about how much energy was consumed to make all of our stuff, and perhaps buy less and at least buy smarter and more conservatively.

it is obvious that energy companies and corrupt government organizations would have NO interest in REDUCING energy use. they make far too much money from it; not only from the most heinous power consuming countries, but also in selling it to developing nations.

so do what you can. buy smarter; buy recycled/used goods. don't use that air conditioner or heater unless you really need it (as in times of freezing temperatures). walk instead of driving. use natural lighting instead of light bulbs. there are so many ways that each person can dramatically reduce their energy consumption. try to see if you can reduce your electric bill by 25%; it is easier than you think. then try 50%.

will it really take a global power outage from the exhaustion of resources for people to understand that we must REDUCE our energy consumption?

here is a great link to teach students about all of these things.

remember, seek the TRUTH!

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**stances 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.
