Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

Rooftop Gardens
With growing encroachment of the concrete jungle, the space for green in metros is shrinking. The only unutilized space available is the rooftop. The idea is to create a landscape of grass (actual grass on the floor, with layers of insulation that avoid seepage through the building), shrubs and creepers. An aver. corporate rooftop will have approx. 4000 sq ft. space available for such a garden. Now multiply that to the no. of buildings that corporate buildings occupy worldwide then we are talking about a green cover equivalent to hundreds of football stadiums put together.

Benefits a. The grass will help in converting CO2 and other emission gases into O2.
b. Due to the insulation on the rooftop, heat will be preserved inside the building during winters and vice versa heat absorption (sunrays) will be minimized during the summers. Both lead to lesser usage of the central air-conditioning.

Turbine Installation
We are talking about installation of turbines in pipes that carry water downwards. Having an over-head water tank is the only requirement for the success of this idea and which all sky-scrapers do have. For example, a single turbine installed strategically in our building will be enough to light up all the CFL bulbs in our terrace. Such high buildings offer further opportunity to install multiple turbines top down.

Waste Water Management
Instead of letting out waste water from buildings into the drainage, we can dig up pits to process this sewage and extract Bio-gas before being let out. The same gas can be used in our pantries for cooking. This is one of the oldest unconventional methods of extracting energy.

Benefits a. These are readily available technologies with minimal investments.
b. Very uncomplicated in terms of installation.
c. A big leap from being a 'Carbon Neutral' entity to becoming a 'Green Energy Producer'.

I suspect there are a number of additions that could amplify the energy producer aspect here. archetictural design shown else where have offered other ways to increase the planting space. mini-wastemanagement plants have got to-or-will exist down the road. I would be somewhat concerned about waste born illness possibilities. All in all, I think you are accuratly predicting effective building use. Nice job Rama. +1 resourcefulness

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

Changes to Charleston

Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More
