Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

So is it worth it? Should we be using all these bottles? Honestly?

You decide. Then tell me your thoughts on the issue.

this has been discussed several times on the site. now, i dont expect you to link to all of them, but maybe link to two different threads of conversation? or i could find it, and link it here, but..... information overload. its sad. you cant find things so easily, even with tags.

findability. the challenge of findability.

bottled water is very controversial. and Fiji is just one example. there are several examples of bottled water companies doing less than ethical things. the question is: what will the politicians do about it? :)

The polititians do nada. It would seem they are more worried about the economy than the people. In some areas of Fujairah (where I lived for a few years) you would often see people refilling massive containers of water for selling, out of a tap from a dodgy looking truck.

Yeah, I already tried looking for some of the threads, and couldn't find any very good ones ^^

You could connect with Michelle about this maybe. Form a team. Add 2-3 others. Here is a blog post she wrote about water.

It's a corrupt business, and it will likely stick around as long as people are willing to charge people for water- like in night clubs where you're charged $3 a bottle. I'd rather be charged a dollar for getting a cup of water they got from their tap- that's friendlier for the environment, keeps the bottled water companies out of the loop, and puts pure profit in their pockets.

That might be a fun initiative to push- Bottles Out, Cups Up- save the water!

+1 collaboration good discussion starting. Linking the "found" discussuions together might be good.
Bottles will continue as long as useful, profitable, convenient and sold.

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.

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

https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zQ49AvLkhA2w.kfbaOGer-lQYIf you click my link to my custom map using Google My Maps you will see the addition of a Emergency Shelter to be used in case of a tidal wave or other event from the sea. 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
