Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

I've picked up Jason Aramburu as my hero to shadow. He is a Princeton Graduate,a New Yorker.

Bio-char is when you turn bio-waste into compost(fertilizer),as well as a replacement for coal (energy use) and through these application we able reduce carbon emissions to the atmosphere .This idea seem to me easy to apply - relevant, environmentally friendly and economically viable;I believe that an idea that meets these criteria.

I've joined re:char - (the company Jason founded) & I shall be keeping up their up with their activities - through their website, twitter,(sent a friend request to Jason facebook - should be interesting -hehehe)

check out Jason on http://www.re-char.com/

I have awarded you +1 knowledge share for this evidence Rendani. I was not aware of Bio-char before I read your post. From my brief look at the link you provided I can see that there are some clear benefits to bio-char production. However, as with most of these new energy technologies one has to be aware of the potential associated problems. It's all about striking a balance I guess. Do you think that bio-char production could be a feasible, further income generating mechanism for poor farmers?

I am equally keen on this concept. It is so interesting. I have heard of something similar called biogas - the only different is that biogas is made with human waste...

the great designer, william mcdonough, the father of the cradle-to-cradle movement incorporated this in his design for a new chinese city - he used the sewer system to create biogas that fires the stoves.

now, the menthan created is perfectly healthy, but i still wonder: would people use it?

Good luck, Rendani, I will be cheering for Jason Aramburu to accept your friendship request.

Very interesting stuff Rendani! The social inovator that i chose to shadow has a company that has a similar goal. Create a biodegradable material to replace materials that we use everyday that are destroying the Earth. +1 for knowledge!

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I'd never heard of biochar. Awesome idea! And I hope that Jason accepts your friend request.

@ Simon:I don't have an answer to your question at this point,I'll have to get back to you on that;however,my intial impression is that it might work well with poor farmers - the process of making it seems easy enough to replicate(technically,economically), farms have readily available biomass which can be turn into bio-char.

@ Batandwa:Biogas - from human waste - what?...am bit taken by wh*** idea of methan being made from human waste.I also wonder , would people use it? - maybe or maybe not.

@Brandon:I've never heard of that being done anywhere before(biodegradable material for eveyday use) - it's an interesting concept;have u checked if it might be feasible?

@ Jen & Alchemy:I have my fingers crossed.

This project is truly amazing. I need to find a way to bring that here...

Hey Rendani- That's so cool that he accepted your request. I'm sure whatever you say will be fine.

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
