Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

This one is easy.

It's 2020 and we can not quite believe what has happened. That's the nature of achieving ideals.

I've been living on the Maldives, with stints on other islands, for years now. Converting the local political economy to zero-carbon was easy, after all President Nasheed was the first national leader to commit to carbon-zero neutrality way back in 2009. What happened beyond even his expectations, was that volunteers from around the world accelerated the process. It wasn't enough to simply achieve neutrality, since the major industrial cities would need much greater help to reverse their effects. It was a risk, but President Nasheed accepted a handful of volunteers into his country initially in 2010 to see what idealistic results could be achieve in one year.

It's now 2020, and we've been a catalyst for global change for a few years now, along with the network of islands. They joined first because they realised that a rise in sea-level would eradicate the land they stood on -- Maldives highest point is 2.3m. The people embraced the social innovations first demonstrated in open source programming, transposing the principles into all walks of life. We are now fully open sourced, with millions of people trying to help us, help them. City folk have come to understand that they can't change the system which they are part of directly, and hence our role is vital. We not only achieved carbon neutrality, we are catalysts for the wh*** globe to achieve neutrality.

And what's special about today? Well, today the results are coming in as whether we have the right conditions to initiate a global effort. The world's first truly global transformation. If the conditions are right, then we will attempt to do globally what we have managed to successfully do here on the Maldives and in other countries. In four year's time, the planet will be sustainable, ecologically, economically, politically.

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.
