1) Self-organisng, grassroots, local response to local needs.
2) Eco tech cheaper than polluting tech.
3) Green entrepreneur makes money.
There is big money to be made from resurrecting the Earth.
The Green Tech SME / Entrepreneur
The green tech entrepreneur, along with the alternative media, is the individual which will end up transforming the Earth. True, many people are lazy
and lack initiative, but this is a blessing to the small percentage of individuals in any community who are ahead of the game, and constantly
searching for new ideas and businesses. Due to the traumatising spectre of poverty that haunts us, we have a fear based hoarding mentality. Win/lose
is deeply ingrained in our psyche and anyone putting forward a win/win paradigm or solution is dismissed as naive or impractical. In fact, win/win
solutions are currently being implemented all over the planet. In decades to come, a network of millions of small businesses and distributors will
bring solar energy, wind turbines, and maybe later other hidden technology to energy hungry homes, providing new standards of living. Vertical farms
will go up in homes, rooftops and skyscrapers around the world, water will come straight from the air. This is a reality we could be living in, and it
makes sense to visualise this instead of wars, strife and famine.
Village Of The Future
It is possible to have a village, sometime in the future, where the inhabitants are producing five times the amount of food they normally produce
using cheap hydroponic vertical farms, where light is provided using hand cranked lanterns, where water comes from atmospheric water generators,
houses are made from recycled loofah and plastic, and energy comes from cheaply made wind turbines or solar panels. Inhabitants will not be totally
dependent on subsistence farming any more. Consider the environmental footprint of such a village. It is pretty much self-sustaining. It pollutes
little, provides abundant food, does not take water from others. Is there any reason not to work towards providing this? Our example uses current
technology only, what will man dream up in ten years?
How to Communicate info about Micro-Generated Household Energy to your local area or developing Countries
1. Locate documentary film, article, seller of innovative and helpful products.
2. Find Website, NGO, discussion forum, Charity, Local Website
3. Send Link/Letter, make phonecall.
Simple as it sounds, this is the low-intensity viral formula that has put Alex Jones films on the first page of google. Millions of low intensity
viral agents talking to a couple of people at a time. The 'friend-of-a-friend' webs are now a million strong.
What about low income families that can't afford these devices? 1. Half of Africa is on less than a dollar a day, the other half isn't. 2. A new
paradigm needs to come about, where people are not measured in terms of dollars, but in terms of intelligence and manual power. Innovative models of
thought are needed. Barter and micro-loans. There are many ways around the current system. Local currencies may be a way to completely regenerate
Village Factory: Example model: it would be possible to set up a small factory in a large empty room, where component kits are shipped in from NGO's,
and local entrepreneurs teach 10 people how to make wind turbines. The deal could be: Make five turbines and you can take one home for yourself. Rural
workers could come for five days and leave with a solar kit. The entrepreneur could cover costs by selling the surplus to the new middle classes.
Handcranked Energy: Handcranked energy is a cute gimmick in the developed world, but a desperately needed invention for countries without energy
infrastructure. Lamps that sell for less than 50 US dollars can provide 2 hours of brightness for any family with a few minutes of cranking.
Wholesale, the price is closer to 10 dollars per lamp. They could be made in NGO run village factories for 5 dollars per unit. Make 5 get one free.
Store bought batteries will one day become obselete.
Beyond Solar and Wind
"Oh man I read on this site they've got this device that can..." Solar and Wind is just the beginning. There have been whispered rumours of all
sorts of technologies denied by the patent offices, and black projects. It's imperative to raise awareness of these issues, as success in this field
means one day each household may have it's own supply of electricity. The drive to release the new technology is currently active. Stephen Greer of
the Disclosure project has campaigned for governments to release zero point devices for years.
The Psychology Of Hopelessness
From yourdictionary.com Hopelessness: irremediable, remediless, incurable. 2. forlorn, disconsolate, dejected. Hopeless, despairing, despondent,
desperate all describe an absence of hope. Hopeless is used of a feeling of futility and passive abandonment of oneself to fate.
Hopelessness is a feeling, not a fact. The belief, not the knowledge, that a situation is beyond saving. There is an widespread unspoken belief that
anyone attempting to provide solutions to current world challenges is naive or impractical. Man the explorer and adventurer has turned into man the
know-it-all defeatist, head and spine smashed in, bleating excuses for his inactivity and confusion. Anyone suggesting alternative routes and modes of
thoughts is patted on the head and dismissed as a dreamy idealist. The fact remains that humanity has faced up to and triumphed over innumerable
problems in the past, and will do so again and again in the future.
