I have been repeatedly asked to explain how to build a TOTEM System. Just the last comment of Terence Karn shows how eager people are to employ alternative energy in their homes.

Terence asked me  not about the TOTEM per se, but about how to employ wind energy in his home.

I looked up Youtube and found some interesting  video clips regarding wind energy in urban areas.

Here are some of the most interesting ones.

The first one deals with the rise in demand for small wind energy turbines in the U.S.A.

This clip shows a wind turbine fit for urban areas. Please pay attention to the fact, that the design originated in Egypt 3.000 years ago!

Here are some more examples.

Those are only some examples and I do not know whether the wind turbines are already on the market for purchase. On Youtube are also clips for the people who would like to build wind turbines by themselves. 

To harness the wind is only the first step to the TOTEM System. The next step would be to use Solar Energy. If the claim in one of the clips is right, that the wind turbine would be sufficient to power a home, with the help of the solar power energy could be sold to the grid.

Clips about solar panel will be shown in one of the next posts.

But with wind and solar the first two steps to the TOTEM System are made and I’m confident, that steam as an energy source for homes will also be developed eventually.

Since a TOTEM does, as yet, not exist and can not exist as 1 facility fit for anywhere. The topography and the climate differ. The Inherent Energy (IE) content of the surrounding is different in every location. The mountain offers a different IE then the ocean.

Another important point I already stressed in my reply to Terence is, that the law differes in all countries and all states and I can’t give any advice about that. But I’m confident, that with the rise of alternative energy, and subsequently TOTEM Systems, in housing areas the laws will eventually make it easier to employ all alternative energies. The more people demand it, the bigger the pressure on the law maker. The present  low price of energy – oil, shouldn’t prevent people from using alternative energy in their homes.If private people will give an example business will follow. 

After all it is only ostensibly an economic consideration, in the end it is a matter of protecting the atmosphere from too much CO2  and this will mitigate the Climate Change!

    Whats up in your entire entry can you reveal a little more.

  2. get back girlfriend

    Im happy I located this blog page, I couldnt obtain any knowledge on this subject before. I also operate a site and in case you are ever serious in doing some guest writing for me please feel free to let me know, im always look for people to check out my site. Please stop by and leave a comment sometime!

    I expect we all learn some very useful things from thissite.

  5. get over break up

    My son was entertained when reading this line on your blog “… one deals with the rise in demand for small wind energy turbines in the U.S.A.This clip shows a wind …” this is it, you just nailed it down pal.

    Hello, very nice web site. I really came across this on Bing, and that i ‘m happy Used to do. I’ll definately be coming back here more regularly. Desire I could add to the conversation and provide a little more to the table, but am simply absorbing as much data because I will right now. Thank you

    why did it become politically correct to pretend that global warming is a fact when multitudes of scientists and experts insist it’s a lie?
    poisoning the enviroment is a bad thing but witch of these loonies have given up their air conditioners, automobiles and
    airplaine trips?
    ad them all together and you get ZERO!
    so why are they not all regarded as lying hypocrites?

      Dear Uwe,
      thank you for your comment.
      The fact of the matter is, that there is no prove whether the climate is changing and there is no prove that the climate is not changing. But it must be taken into account that the Climate Change might happen and for such a case we have to get prepared. Also if the Climate Change is a possibility we have to do everything to fight it and that means we have to employ alternative technology, like the TOTEM System, even if it means that this will change society.
      I hope I could clearify some misunderstandings.
      All the best,
