Saturday–25Aug18

I apologize for the short postings yesterday…I went to work in the yard and got overheated….not a good feeling…..

I try to give my readers info that they have missed during the week or so….an FYI sort of thing.

We hear about the destruction of the environment almost day….and prediction have been forthcoming since the first A-bomb test….there was even an attempt to try a living within a self-contained, the Biosphere…..http://biosphere2.org/

Since those days there have been other ideas to try and limit a person carbon footprint….the newest one is in Minnesota and an abandoned Ford factory…https://www.wired.com/story/ford-st-paul-development-housing-cities-yimby-nimby/

Not to be out done by us Colonials……the Nederlands has a new approach…..

A half-hour commute from Amsterdam, a piece of farmland is slated to become a new kind of neighborhood. Vertical farms, along with traditional fields and orchards surrounding homes, will supply food to people living there. Food waste will turn into fish feed for on-site aquaculture. Houses will filter rainwater, but won’t have driveways. A “village OS” tech platform will use AI to simultaneously manage systems for renewable energy, food production, water supply, and waste.

Human attempts to change the direction of the planet……will these attempts just be something “novel” for B roll news reports?  Or will this help our understanding of what we are doing to our home?

I am old and will not be here to see the destruction first hand…..but my granddaughter will be and I try to let her know what we are doing to this blue marble of wonder.

I am stilling fighting my bout with the heat so I will take it easy this weekend…..hopefully that will correct the damage I may have done.

Let the weekend begin!
