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!

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).

In 1971 Mr. Reynolds saw on TV reports about the evolving problems of tin cans and deforestation. That got the man thinking and he...

Step One to the TOTEM

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...

Sustainability and the Individual

With this post we want to close the trilogy about Capitalism and Sustainability. In the first post Capitalism and Climate Change the topic was, that capitalism remained after the terrible battles with communism, which has vanished. Hopefully for good. In the second part named Capitalism in Transition we came to the conclusion, that also capitalism has come to a turning point. The next step ahead, and there seems to be no disagreement, should be the Sustainable society. We can all demand from...
