Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

A potential option for an innovative alternative energy source is biomass power plants. Gainesville has its own biomass currently, however it is being operated at inefficients levels which cause it to be a fiscal drain on the county. However biomass represents a critical opportunity to harness the power of renewable energy that is unattached to any significant disadvantages.

Of course I did not design the concept of biomass energy, however I offer my own original design of how to operate the Gainesville Renewable Energy Center's biomass plant in such a manner that is productive towards its success.

Right not there is one major problem with the biomass plant that needs to ameliorated. This problem is the cost. Or more accurately the management of the cost. The situation is that none of the project managers are in agreement about about what the price of constructing the biomass plant should be or what the price of buying power or various other economic concerns of the project. My idea is to bring in technocrats whose expertise is in the realm of biomass energy to oversee the construction and operation. Currently the project is being overseen by three different types of people. One is members of the city commission who have no technical knowledge about such concerns. The second group of people is high level management of GRU who may have be somewhat introduced to the mechanics of power generation, however once again lack the specific skills to make a biomass plant successful. The last group who has say about costs is the company who was awarded the contract to build the plant. This is problematic because the one group who has a say over potential costs and has a technical knowledge of the operation of a biomass plant is the party who stands to make a profit from added or unnecessary costs. Therefore there have been countless contract changes throughout the process of construction and to prevent public scrutiny the procedural changes demanded by the biomass company have not been disclosed.

My design would be to create a small team of individuals with a technocratic knowledge of biomass energy who could be employed on a temporary basis to act as a regulatory agency. There are countless regulatory agencies established at a federal level of governance, so why not have the same at a local level? The price of the biomass plant has already raised several millions of dollars in price throughout the process of seeing the project come to fruition. It is possible that an independent regulatory body could eschew some of the more unneeded price modifications for a net savings.

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.
