Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

People around the globe all use a huge amount of energy. Every year the worldwide need for electric energy is growing. Electricity is an integral part of our life and we have to do out best to conserve it in order to continue its use in the future, as well as to avoid more pollution and acid rain with raises various other health and environmental issues.So, to cater for the massive need we have of electricity long with the environmental issues; we developed reusable energy sources.

The United States uses a fourth of the world’s energy, yet the US only has less than 5% of the population of the wh*** world. The United States consumes almost a million dollars of energy each and every minute of every day! An average American uses 6 times more energy than the global average. The world's biggest source of energy is still coal. Only about 7.5% of the United States energy came from renewable power sources, in 1998, although 250 times for renewable power was available over their consumption.

So is it enough?

The world's biggest wind turbine is in Hawaii and it is 20 stories tall. Currently, Norway aims to build the world's biggest wind turbine at 533 feet tall. Enough sunlight hits the earth each minute to power the world for a year. In California, 1982, the first solar power plant opened. The energy from a single wind turbine could potentially power 300 homes. Electricity for 600,000 families within the U.S. can be produced by the current turbine power industries. Iceland is mounted directly above a massive volcanic system, which provides most of its homes with heat from geothermal energy.

Well apparently it is not enough because less than 10% of the world's energy is created by sistainable energy sources. So we need to do more.

Now for the cliched moment you have all been waiting for. Conserve your energy - help take the strain off the shoulders of unsustainable energy sources. Simple things you can do to help:

  • Don't stand in front of the refrigerator with the door open for long periods of time.
  • Close windows and doors to keep warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
  • Turn off the TV when no one is watching it.
  • Turn off the lights when you leave the room

Wow. I feel green after writing this. I hope you do too.

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

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.
