People Power – When Power is Out

September 25, 2017

People Power

News says disaster areas out of power. Why? Where there are people there is people power.
This video shows how one person riding a bike generates power that can be stored. Now imagine many people, not riding a bike, but turning a wheel – like a windmill turned sideways. They can make their own power.

There is a simple low tech way to get power to every neighborhood that has people – people power.
Don’t forget low tech solutions. They are cheaper and easier to set up – great for poorer communities, and they don’t involve the government.
Turn a water wheel or windmill sideways and you have a revolving door or turnstile.
Hook a generator to a revolving door of a skyscraper, or a turnstile at a stadium or the doors at a concert hall, and you have people power – even in a blackout. Free, clean, renewable, on site, and even healthy, power.

During these changing times, it’s important that we keep trying what hasn’t worked in the past, continue to block out any new solutions, and wring our hands or sit on them, when nothing gets better ….

Poverty , The end of

October 5, 2015

This article suggests poverty can be solved in our generation. That’s been something I’ve been saying for some time. See the link to the story and some comments from me after.

Quote:
“This is the best story in the world today — these projections show us that we are the first generation in human history that can end extreme poverty,” World Bank President Jim Yong Kim said in a press release.

We would all work for a cure if 45 million people had a devastating disease. We would find a cure and help them get well. Think of poverty as the disease.

The cost of one war would be enough capital to generate enough interest to end poverty in the US in a few decades.

CBA’s could end poverty without spending a dime etc.
