Low-Tech vs. High-Tech in the fight against Climate Change

The eruption of a rather small volcano in Iceland in April 2010 showed the world the susceptibility of High tech to small incidents. As for this incident it just caused a lot of inconvenience for the passengers and a couple of hundred millions in losses for the airlines and the economy. As bad as that is it is it but gives us a taste of things to come should the Climate Change. In this case this rather minor incident has to be multiplied by an, as yet, unknown factor. What will happen when the...

Ecological Economy

It is also called sustainability but we at Nesseq, modest as we are, called it Eco-Eco! The Ecological Economy! The core of which is centered around self-help. The employment of Inherent Energy and proven and reliable technologies can only help. The reason why self-help is effective is simply the thought, that a capitalist won’t supply our needs if the profits cannot be maximized.

A couple of thousand years ago earth was full of forests. The destruction is the mostly results of human deeds. And the destruction of the forests still goes on. For millions of years the forest and the phytoplankton in the oceans were the sources to absorb the CO2 in the atmosphere. But both are being badly damaged. Some people will try to sell a technology to do the photosynthesis. Then we will have to buy oxygen in the supermarket, just like exotic table water. The question is whether...

Water Waste

Water is, after oxygen, the most important element without which life would not exist on this planet. Without oxygen one survives a couple of minutes, without water only some days. Although water is abundant only a small part is potable. Still it is wasted as though there is no tomorrow. While the world population will grow in the next 30-40 years by around 30%, from today 7 billion to 9 billion people the amount of potable water remains static. If the climate will change the situation will...
