A crash course in changing the world.

Electricity from SAND..lol ..it works!

The core of this technology is simply sand.

The sand is the raw material used to make wafers that can make electricity.

Oxygen is pumped in on one side and natural gas on the other. The two combine inside the cell to create a chemical reaction that produces electricity. No burning, no combustion, no power lines from outside

A half-dozen big companies have already bought this technology at a cost of $700,000 to $800,000. But Sridhar’s (the inventor - Bloom energy) goal is a $3,000 box that anybody can use to power their home though he says home use is 10 years away.

“We believe that we can have the same kind of impact on energy that the mobile phone had on communications. Just as cell phones circ**vented landlines to proliferate telephony,

Bloom Energy will enable the adoption of distributed power as a smarter, localised energy source,” Sridhar said.
It will allow customers, he said, to “lower their energy costs, reduce their carbon footprint, improve their energy security”.

25 years or more ago I spoke to a woman who's job entailed working with the oil industry. They had a department that kept a lookout for promising alternative technologies and bought them up - to kill them off.
I fear we are suffering from an increase in that sort of thing now. It will irritate me a lot when oil companies bring these inventions out of the dark and claim Green point for themselves!

thats sad news. But proper marketing strategies on the right platform can undoubtedly get the technology out there!. At least we are aware of such so called enemies.

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.

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
