Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

  1. What you have matters more than what you lack (If you’ve got a bicycle, consider what you can build based on that, rather than worrying about not having a car, a truck, a metal shop.)
This is important to understand i believe. Why? Well because, it would seem that so much time is devoted to bringing in resources. So
much money spent on just trying to bring whats over 'there' to this
place over 'here'. We could use the resources that the country can
provide and bring change that way. I also understand and accept that not
all things can be done this way but we could focus our attention on
trying to solve the problems we can within that country or areas means
to do so.

Not all problems are solved by throwing more or less money at the
situation but rather focusing on what needs to be done and how to
accomplish that. Firstly by using what resources are available and then
secondly by providing the services these countries lack for a better
environment. If we took in to account my 'first' statements we can
better deduce what exactly is lacking instead of a glance at the
problem, and then assumptions. After the 'first' part of the attack on
this problem, we bring in the 'second' part i mentioned. Now that we
know the countries most significant problems on a person by person
level, it is easier to devote whats needed to the problem and not just
what the rest of the world sees as the problem.

Putting this theory into a hypothetical analysis of Japans problem we
see that this is an efficent way of dealing with a crisis such as food

The analysis of the problem and deducing what the country needs is
obvious to them and the rest of the world looking at the problem. In
short, they are raping the land there living on and preventing nature
itself from helping them solve there problems. Why? Well, it would seem
the only government action has come from building rooftop gardens but is
negated because of the fact that more skyscrapers go up and block that
airflow which would help there climate situation if those buildings
weren't there. Due to the heat, instead of the people saying "Theres a
problem" the actual problem goes on ignored as more people continue to
buy air conditioners which makes the problem again, worse then before.
So keeping with my theory, were still in the 'first' part. This begs the
question what could Japan do for themselves?

Instead of ignoring the problems that plauge them climate wise and
buying air conditioners. Japan should focus on whats causing all of the
heat which is explained in the investigative article found on urgent
evoke. They can fix this problem on there own. Basically, there not
getting enough cooling from the outside world because so many
skyscrapers block the wind from breezing through the city. This in
effect, creates the greenhouse effect which also makes it hotter and
less stable environment.

Solution, remove these towering giants that pose the biggest problem
first and in return for tearing them down create a ground level garden
instead of rooftop gardens in its place (growing food on the roof, oxygen promoting plants on the ground). This will allow for more air to
at least move through the city in some way, pushing hotter air and
airborne toxins out and away from the city as well as providing simple food items from the plants on the roofs. This will also further there
garden plan to help the city not just up hundreds of feet up but on the
ground where it counts as well. Also, the ban or at least restriction
on air conditioners that are creating more pollutants. More fans instead
of more air conditioners, possibly a voucher to replace your air
conditioner with a fan instead. So many people live in Tokyo that if
they all removed there air conditioners for fans that may very possibly
cool them off on its own because not only is it providing cooler air but
fans promote air convection within a space by keeping the air moving
thus cooling the room your in. Multiply this by the million or more
people in Tokyo with air conditioners that could have fans and you can
see the point iam trying to make. Lets also not forget about recycling
the air conditioners to cause less pollution in the long run.

These may be simple things but like protest, 1 simple protester may not
be enough but if millions of simple protesters come together, they can
change a country. In comparison, if millions of citizens did something
as simple as removing there air conditioner they could greatly improve
the environment there in. An example of my point, before an outsider
source has to throw money at the problem and send in volunteers the
country can already help itself before wasting un-needed effort. Because
of this we can put the stronger effort to those who need it urgently
and Japan can finally cool down.

In response to the food shortage, by tackling this problem we can also
tackle the food shortage as well. The answer is simple but not easy to
accept. Sacrifice. Japan would have to sacrifice its lavish buildings,
gourmet food, there technological based city, to provide a better
environment in the future. Japans problem with food comes from the fact
that they are solely reliant on imports to bring them food. I think if
japan runs out of food, its simple. They are a greedy little island and
need to bring it back to KISS (keep it simple stupid). 1% of all of
there food is grown on crops in that country. That is unacceptable for
any country if you ask me and resounds with greed all over it. I
suggest, that they start investing in making there own crops readily
available in there own country, something almost every country in the
world relies on more then just 1% of the time.

I understand that it may not be as simple as it is for me to write this
article, but if i had the power, or resources to do any of this i would
gladly step up to the plate. I didnt edit this so if its horribly
un-readable im sorry.

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.
