Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

I am on a Cruise Ship celebrating some family holidays. This cruise was selected as it is completely fueled by sustainable energy. The most exciting part is the Kite, which is then developed to a high standard.

With all that wind energy available on the open see it's just that one big kite at the end of the ship flying at moderate altitude, however generating enough power to supply that wh*** ship.

Of course, if there's no wind, there are solar panels. And a big battery.

The Kite is much more elegant and effective for a ship than a regular windmill power plant. For a windmill you carefully have to watch the static of the ship, and that wh*** construction is quite heavy.

I like your idea, but you raise a good point, a huge windmill on a ship could tip it over?

yeah, sure, that windmill's head would just be too high and heavy and would tip it over with just a tiny impulse.

As far as I understand it's the rope. The time the kite is moved away by the wind it generates energy. I think after a while you fold that thing, turn it back and then let it go again. It doesn't quite influence the movement of the ship as all that kinetic energy is used to generate current.

Sails use wind to move the ship forward. Of course, if you work with sails in addition you would save fossil fuels on the engine part.

I like your idea about being on a sustainably powered ship, instead of flying for some sort of destination event. I will be writing about the dangers of destination events in my blog today. +1Vision from me :)

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.
