The Inherent Energy of Compost

Compost, who could be against it? (1) It seems the sensible thing to do. It is definitely better than it used to be. The question to be asked is, do we get the most out of the organic garbage? Organic waste is in the following refered to as Biomass. Compost is a waste of the Inherent Energy of biomass. Biomass is much more than just the organic waste of house and gardening. A substantial part of man-made Biomass is the sewage. A nice way of saying human feces. Add to this the waste our pets...

Earthship Ahoi!

Earthship Ahoi!

A friend of mine sent me a couple of weeks ago an article in German about the so-called Earthships by the architect Michael Reynolds (1). I tried to find the background information in English on the net but nothing much turned up and I am too lazy to dig any deeper and will rely on what the respectable German newspaper Die Welt tells us about man and house (2). In 1971 Mr. Reynolds saw on TV reports about the evolving problems of tin cans and deforestation. That got the man thinking and he...

1. World System

The technology of the 1. World (1) plays a big part in the wake of a possible Climate Change (2). But it is not just the technology, it is the whole system, in which technology is one of the decisive parts. The 1. World is transferring their system to the 3. World (3), although it is obvious, that this system does not function properly. Would our system work as it should, our natural environment would remain undisturbed and a Climate Change would be a far away possibility. If a Climate Change...

Again the TOTEM!

The basic statement of the TOTEM System is, use what you have! You don’t use muscles, than you have to use a machine. This constitutes a multiplied need for energy. The old saying, that if you had a brain, you would not have to use your muscles, is so not valid anymore. In times of Climate Change signs. Use more muscles, means less technical energy is needed. And this is the declared goal of every ecological conscience person. Still many minor jobs, which do not demand much energy, are...

TOTEM in the Artic

Someone called Beck asks me on page Nesseq Mission, how to build a TOTEM System on the Arctic? He or she will be stationed there next year. Question, the stations in the Arctic and the Antarctica don’t have a TOTEM System yet? The people on the poles are the scientific elite of the world and it did not occur to them to stop wasting energy every possible way? Many people have asked me how to build a TOTEM System. Until now, I could not answer it, since I don’t know the Inherent...
