Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

I'm in the place of my upbringing, the outskirts of Washington D.C, for the World Water Gathering, 2020. There are, of course, similar gatherings in many other places globally, including but not limited to, Tokyo, London, Beunos Aires, Mexico City, Babylon, Amsterdam...

Wow, there is the magnificent energy-generating, re-circulating waterfall powering 50% of the entire event

this was first introduced, of course, @ the 2016 Rio olympics

This is the first time that it has been done in the middle of the city & the outcome is truly amazing. I had a hand in the initial planning stage...

The use of advanced aquaponics (a combination of hydroponics{growing plants without soil, using water as a meduim} & aquaculture {farming fish}) is what has made this magnificent waterfall possible...Then again, with the changes that have occured in DC, once a very humid, hot place because of the cities negligence in becoming green, now transformed into a very environmentally & innovative city, still not even in the top 10 worldwide, how could you catch up to those who broke away from the pack fast? it was like a race, but a good race, one where all the spectators & fellow racers want everyone to finish...

So there's so many fresh fish for everyone to eat, taken from nearby Chesepeake Bay, replenished after scientists & fish lovers & others worked hard & harder when the fish were dissapearing so fast from non-sustainable fishing & sea transportation methods...

The man-made wetlands so prevelant in the once woe-begone city are so nice to view & tramp around in. The wildlife has finally almost come up to a point of co-existing with these humans, oh the humans who nearly learned there lesson the hard way...

Did i mention I have land near here 7 have trained deer, trained yes but i let them run wild on mostly natural habitat, there is my favorite one whom i rode here, to all those who would cringe, no he does not mind we are quite fond of each other...

everyone is having such a good time just celebrating...the end of all world problems has not arrived but oh has so much been accomplished since I was struggling to make a difference 10 short(long?) years ago in Arkansas...

The water is so plentiful from so many methods that have been adapted since them, from condensation catching rain-misters (converting condensation from weather & agriculture into water), to such amazing desalination that it has become the norm...fresh water rivers & lakes can come to being wherever it is chosen

By solar-desalination plants, which convert sunlight into water, pioneered by IBM in 2014 in Saudi Arabia...The water is so plentiful & everyone is just enjoying it, drinking it, playing in it, splashing friends, family, strangers, I'm glad I decided to come, but wonder if other cities gatherings are better...

That's not positive thinking though & there is my good friend whom I must catch up with....

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.
