Wind for Heating and Cooling

It seems the gas sector is trying to become indispensible as part of district heating solutions around the world. It reasons only with its own potential and a methane shortage is not on the horizon. Sadly banks are not making a choice for this industry, in fact banks seem to see it as their refuge now that coal is losing its Salonfähigkeit. What is someone who really wants to cut CO2 emissions to do?

Don’t start about Hydrogen please. As things stand Hydrogen is going to be produced from methane through steam reforming. In the unlikely case it is going to be produced from wind energy or solar it will waste nearly 60% of the energy, so your solar panel now has a yield of not 18% but 8% or your windpark is not generating 10GW but effectively 5GW. There is a Nitrogen infrastructure, for NH3 ammonia, but not any real one for H2. It is more efficient to ship power in batteries by rail to where it needs to go than to convert it to H2 and pipe it somewhere. H2 is a so called “Delay strategy” to protect Methane sales.

So what then? Heat, where do you get it? We say : Wind. How? Mechanical friction. Heat is the easiest thing to produce in the world, its has the lowest entropy of different kinds of energy. Compare these ideas :

Wind -> generator -> cable -> convert to H2 -> burn -> Heat


Wind -> Friction -> Heat. Then Move heat to consumer.

Of course it’s not that simple, especially when your turbines are at sea, the question is if they need to be but ok. We have a trick up our sleave and a role for H2 to play as well!

Heat storage in N2/H2

The above image is from a project run in Australia almost a decade ago, we came across it then. It was about storing solar heat by splitting ammonia into N2 and H2, to then recombine them later to generate heat. We have not calculated how you could do this with fricion heat from wind and how practical it is, but your heat can be generated and stored.

We made this mock up of a VAWT generating heat in a box below ground, where the heat can not escape. Its easy to calculate the yield.

Another way to do it is to have smaller turbines by the coast (for The Hague for example) ones you place there only in winter when nobody is on the beach. There’s a lot of wind, you can use the mechanical force to generate heat in underground water basins (water is an excellent heat storage medium) and then pipe it to the city from there. We wrote about wind heatning systems here.

what we found later

There are other examples of this idea and its execution. The major reason to do it is that it is very cheap. It does not require complex electrical systems or intricate mechanical parts. There are people who use a hydraulic pump or comperssor instead of a direct drive axle, which may be more cost effective and versatile (because now you have hydraulic pressure use any way you like). The major obstacle is the ability to place wind turbines on land against the right wing political will, but these turbines have no gears, so

Source This concept was patented by Apple if we’re not mistaken

Now if we are not mistaken the planet is heating up at a scary pace. So cooling solutions are likely more welcome in many parts of the world. Sadly hot air doesn’t usually have much wind, but you can have a Mistral or some kind of desert wind in specific places you can utilize for COOLING. Simply drive a heat pump with the mechanical or hydraulic force and you’re done. It is easier to store ice underground (or super cold liquids) than heat, as the cold naturally doesn’t cause upward convection but creates an insulating layer of cold air on top of it.

A wind turbine that cools air so water comes out..

Wind cooling using hudraulics can in turn be used to extract water from the air. This is an actual company, even though we have seen the price rise. Read more about it here.

Another source of heat and cooling energy remains the Sun. We think the high efficiency solar thermal panels have not had a fair chance. These panels that maintain an ultra high vacuum are capable of reaching 500 Celsius in the dead of winter. But commonly, in most solar thermal applications in the middle of summer the panels are not used because they generate -too much- heat. For that period we need to see more cooling conversion systems.

Corona Exit

The Coronavirus is a challenge to the system, one we would never invite but which the globalized economy kind of did. Many have said it would not be a question if, but when this kind of disease would break out of some biological niche. Now it did, and the origin is still uncertain.

Across the globe we have seen right wing dominated goverments being reluctant to respond adequately to stop contamination. The main reason is that in these governments people that think money is more important than human lives are in charge. Industry does not care about your life, this is a fundamental thing to understand. If human lives are not a factor in the bottom line, that bottom line can drive a lethal machine, as we have seen in the case of tobacco, DDT, Glyphosate, fossil fuels..

Now that right wing politicians realize they can not hide behind walls to protect themselves, in fact, their job and their denial of its seriousness exposes them almost maximally to this disease, they have come around with more sensible measures. Still loopholes are left, like in the UK somehow people should still visit pubs. in other places schools remain open. In Romania people recieved the holy communion en masse in spite of a lockdown.

But the production of goods and services is now seriously impeded, not only the frolicking around consuming fossil fuels (flying to sunny destinations for example). Production needs to restart somehow. As that is done contamination has to be checked because the disease can resurge when people start mingling again. We have not yet seen proposals on how to do this.

It seems a good test for immunity needs to be developed, so that immune people can be identified. There are alot of them, and they can commune and interact without problems (as far as we understand the situation). Creating a large group of uninfectuous immune individuals was behind the botched choice for “Herd immunity” of Boris Johnson and also the dutch PM. “Herd immunity” has to be build up by carefully and stricktly seprating the most vulnerable from the rest, and this is not what happened in the UK, there the assumption was that everyone would become infected so no use to take measures. Johnson can blame Cummings but ultimately he suggested to “take it on the chin”.

But “Herd immunity” is a thing, and in many places, at the cost of lives, it is developing. We hope the disease doesn’t mutate as regular flu does. If it doesn’t then immune people can be “let loose” to work again. It makes sense to us to make a plan on how to do that, but maybe this is even overkill. The main steps are:

  1. Test people for immunity and certify them
  2. Allow groups of immune people to work together
  3. Keep separating the elderly and make strict rules on interaction
  4. Perhaps select immune people to deal with the elderly as a “shield”
  5. “Grow” uninfected communities around supermarkets or places they commune

One could look at “supermarket” communities in cities to test people. Great place to collect tests as well. Send an SMS code to people if they are tested which they can use to show they have been tested (rechallenge). A simple APP with photo id linked to the phone number will do.

It is shockingly clear that the industrially motivated policies that weakened the police, fire department, hospitals and care givers have increased the risk to the population, and those that drove these weakening policies are now known. Heads must roll. Also deep respect for those that are still risking their health because their work forces them to be close to infected people.

The economy has shown its true face, we don’t need to work for money, our debts don’t need to be payed, banks don’t contribute to society, as long as there is energy there is production of the essentials. Manual migrant labour shortages will become a problem and this calls for solidarity, we will need to work our own fields. Holland risks having to eat 7 times as much meat because of export restrictions (a joke of course), nobody will toil in the fields to produce for unnecessary exports. We hope some globalist aspects of the world economy will be reconsidered. We advise to prohibit any company to be affiliated or supply to customers beyond the real world horizon.

Dog Corona Virus Detectors?

Dogs have an exceptional sense of smell, many animals are better than humans in this respect, even though mothers can usually pick t-shirts worn by their children out of a pile. We all know dogs have been trained to detect heroin and other drugs, promting smugglers to hid them in coffee for instance.

From talking to dog training experts we learned that dogs can be trained for a lot of jobs, but always one job at a time, unless its natural behaviour. They trade performance on a detection job for play and attention, and what they will do shifts constantly dependent on what you reward with play.

Dogs can smell pathogens and diseases, some diseases cause our body to produce ammonia or aceton which is easy to detect, but diseases with less dramatic effect have also been detected, amongs others the flu. When we looked into this we found that dogs have been trained to detect bird flu (H1N1 or avian influenze) and could do it quite reliably:

“The dogs are performing at 97-98 percent accuracy as a group,”

Dogs learning to recognize a scent

Another disease dogs can detect is cancer. The most interesting aspect of this ability is the stage in which the cancer is present in the patient.

” One study found that dogs trained only to detect breast cancer were also able to detect melanoma and lung cancer, meaning that there may be a common odor signature across different types of cancer. “

Cancers are growths that are developing blood vessels and may be distressed causing them to emit a smell. It may be that the process of infection of the coronavirus also produces specific chemicals and protiens a dog can smell on our breath, or even from further away. The virus is breaking into cells, the cell will start making the virus and burst releasing the virus into the air.

Smell training

There is a risk though that dogs actually contract the virus themselves. The question is then how contageous and affected would they be. Its also a question how long it would take to train a dog if it where possible or what the dog would be trained on, a real virus or a patient or a destroyed virus? It may not be as easy as we like but we think dogs may be a great patner in detecting infected people and help us stop the spread from infected but not sick patients.

Why Banks Want You to Hate Billionairs

Many people are calling for the fleecing of Billionairs. They are precieved as unjust hoarders of money that should be distributed amongst the people. They are made suspect as if you can’t earn a billion no matter what you do. Bloomberg is a billionair and buying the election! We think there is a good reason for this sentiment, and it is not because people are hurt by them, but because banks don’t like them. They make the world unpredictable for them.

“Nobody earns a billion” is a common way to make billionairs seem suspect. But of course this then goes for any business owner who has employees.

First of, what is a billionair exactly? Seems like a stupid question, its supposed to be a guy with a billion dollars or more. Not quite, is the money in his/her company or in the bank in cash? Elon Musk owns a billion dollar valuated company, 35 Billion to be precies, but can he access all that cash? Does he have any other plans than make more cars and rockets? It is common knowledge he made a high risk bet on the growth of Tesla, which would if not met mean no reward for him after all the hard work (and all the people he gave an exciting job).

 “Those holdings may be difficult or even impossible for Musk to quickly sell for cash, meaning it’s quite possible that he could face a liquidity crunch.” (source)

But maybe Musk is a bad example. Michael Bloomberg’s empire is said to be worth $62 Billion. That is also the value if he sold it, but of course he won’t. He’s running for president now and seems to have a lot of cash to spend on media, his expertise.

But there are other billionair companies, the poorest of the top 100 has $98 Billion. Apple is worth about $800 Billion. They are not considered Billionairs as far as we know. Why focus on a few individuals that have more than a Billion to allocate or have companies with such value, and not on the other hundreds of them?

Banks fleece Billionairs all the time with exclusive services, they like to feel different and there is many ways banks will give them that experience

We think the reason there is no riot against Apple to share some of its wealth with society, but there is a riot against (known) rich individuals, is that the whole movement is orchestrated by banks. This is because banks fear billionairs. Billionairs don’t need banks. Just like with all the hate that is incited, against immigrants etc. the hate against billionairs has a different purpose, it is the mob helping the banks get rid of enemies.

Elon Musk had about 160 Million in cash around 2009 and decided to build an electric car. Electric cars where demonstratively destroyed earlier in the 20th century, they existed, they made the owners happy, but they did not use fossil fuels. They reduced cashflow for fossil fuels. That is why the did not exist. A workshop of an EV builder was mysteriously burned to the ground. EVs where not hip then, nobody believed in them but a few and Elon Musk.

Banks destroyed this car, It threatened their cashflow

The money Elon had earned he put in Tesla, and SpaceX, until almost all of it was gone and there was nothing left. He did not get any help from banks, but the banks could not stop him. NASA and Mercedes helpt Tesla survive in the last minute. He is now ripping apart the entire industry, with brands admitting they can never catch up, dumping internal combustion engines and so sunsetting vehicle fuel cashflow which is a steady business for banks, reducing the need for maintenance, lubrication, brake fluid, brakes, etc. etc.

If Elon Musk did not have that money in cash, he could not have done this. He would have been discouraged by banks. We have followed the renewable industry for more than a decade now and heard first hand stories about banks trying to kill projects that meant less energy cashflow, like a personally owned wind turbine.

Do fossil cashlfow banks kill alternatives for fossil fuel cars? Listen around 2 minutes 11 seconds!

If a billionair had the mind he could build a giant floating solar power plant in the middle of Holland, and suddenly he would be selling energy against Euro’s, he would not be in debt, he would earn and earn and elsewhere owners of power plants would see energy prices having dropped, cashflow through banks would dry up. It would destroy the system of control over society banks have.

Billions give power that can break through harmfull barriers

A company could probably not do that, because a company is loaded with debt to the max already, it competes with other companies that have done the same, all so banks can both control and profit from them, a lot like a parasite. You can say “Now wait a minute, banks do the complicated stuff”. But who made the stuff so complicated? Who designed the ‘credit default swaps’ and other products that caused the crash in 2008? The essence of what banks need is control, and they have an incredibly powerfull tool to excert it, which is the right to create credit.

Robert Mercer and his daughter funded Trumps fake news presidential campaign

Whereas companies are beholden to shareholders and continuation of bank loans, as well as ratings by ‘independent’ rating agencies, flat out billionairs are not. Technically they control a tremendous amount of resources which they can direct towards a specific goal. If those billions where spread out in the hands of say one million people, these people would spend it on predictable things, things that would be unlikely to change the situation for banks. Elon Musk spend all his millions on the cars and rockets (and SolarCity) and he needed to to get going. He seemed to have worked to the top of his capacity and this created a change in society car companies, oil companies, banks fought hard to avoid.

So we should cherish the millionairs and billionairs that can think for themselves and have freed themselves from the clutches of banks. There are evil ones as well, such as the Koch Brother (one left) and the Mercers (father and daughter who sponsored Trumps fake persidential campaign using illegal Facebook data). If billionairs are the target, then so must be billionair companies who evade taxes, and probably those first. However, banks don’t like you to distub their racket, so they want you to focus on those they have no use for or feel threatened by.

Het plan van Shell en de Gasunie

Het is nationaal nieuws, Shell en de Gasunie doen een poging om de gas/fossiele economie langer te laten duren. Ze stellen voor langzaam 10 Gw windpark te bouwen op de Noordzee, en daarvan meteen 5Gw weg te gooien door er waterstof van te maken. Dat zal dan voor verwarmingsprocessen in de industrie gebruikt worden, daarbij nog eens 50% verkwistend.

Waterstof zal overwegend met Gas gemaakt worden, waarbij CO2 vrijkomt

De uitvoering is langzaam, en er zal dus eerst waterstof van aardgas worden gemaakt. Dat is al jaren de wens van de gasindustrie, om van CH3 H2 te maken, de C aan O2 te koppelen en die dan op te slaan (de belofte van CCS die al jaren wordt uitgesteld en mislukt). Gas-Waterstof met emissies dus.

Waterstof synthese met hydrolyse is niet erg efficient

Het ultieme doel is om onze economie afhankelijk te houden van processen waar we zelf geen grip op hebben. Dan kan de bank waterstof krediet uitgeven aan industrie die de gasstrategie steunt, en veel risico zien in industrie die wil verduurzamen. Zo houdt de fossiele sector ook na fossiel de macht, en dat in een proces zo traag dat we de strijd tegen catastrofale opwarming zeker zullen verliezen.

We moeten van het machtsbolwerk van centrale distributie van energie via krediet af. Het is een fossiel systeem!

We zien sodium en kalium batterijen, perovskiet zonnecellen als techniek vertraagd worden door de bank/fossiele weerstand (de link tussen die twee is dat geld fossiel krediet is). Dat terwijl die technieken voor goedkope batterijen en zonnepanelen zouden kunnen zorgen, vandaag al! Hoe lang laten we die fossiele macht nog de dienst uitmaken.

Zo’n 10 GW windpark moet er zo snel mogelijk komen, en verwarmen doe je dan liever met stroom, want dan kun je de warmte vasthouden omdat je niet de hele tijd (in het geval van waterstof) waterdamp moet laten ontsnappen (water neemt een hoop warmte mee!). Daarbij zou een zonnecentrale op het Markermeer een betere match zijn voor een vrij en welvarend Nederland, vergelijk:

Wind op zee en Waterstof :

Ver weg
Afhankelijk van bestaande banksysteem
Gooit 60% weg door waterstof conversies
Heel duur (waardoor eigendom van banksysteem)
Aardgas gebruik blijft lang hoog dus ook CO2 emissies
Heeft CCS nodig wat nog niet werkt

Markermeerzonnecentrale :

Dicht bij
Deelnemende gemeentes worden bank
Sla op in batterijen, 5% verlies
Kan vandaag beginnen, kan met contant geld
Geeft ruimte aan NL zonnepanelen/batterijen fabriek
Stroom en warmte kan gewonnen worden

We need to capture more CO2 fast. There are many fast growing plants, one of them is the Ivey plant (or Hedera helix). It sprouts new fingers each year and tries to get into every crack it can find. It is low maintenance, you plant it, it starts to grow. A lot like the vines of wine actually, which is also a great plant. Where to put it? Against the walls or your home.

Ivy Plant or Hedera helix

We propose that as a clear attempt to create negative emissions, we all plant Ivy plants against our homes. As a child we studied the tiny feet they make against the briks of a wall, and they are glued to it quite strongly, but they don’t break down your home, and can be cleaned off without a problem. You will have to trim them as they try to crawl through your windows in spring.

Beautifull way to capture carbon and clean your local air

In most cities you own at least 50 cm of pavement from the front of your house. You can remove tiles and plant your Ivy. It is easier than other plants because they are more sturdy, so you won’t have to worry about people stepping on it, yet you will be contributing to capturing CO2 in a real visible way.

Just remove a tile and plant our Ivy

Plants cause evaporative cooling, they breath the air and as a result clean it as well of NOx. The biomass they create as they grow up buildings can be considerable, Ot could be a way to collect and dispose of biomass from inner cities to capture the leaves in fall (if fall is still a thing). Join the Ivy League, we set up a facebook page and invite you to post pictures of your Ivy plant. Go Ivy with your street.

Capture CO2 against your walls and clean the air!

The Unknown Enemy

We face climate change, we face plastic pollution, we face many problems caused by the use of fossil fuels, but also many problems caused by humans that use those fossil fuels to make other things, to mass produce, industry.

A refinery?

Industry is visible, you can see it, but it has no real identity to us, it’s a bunch of pipes and blue lights at night. You hear humming and see flares. It smells weird. The above picture could be of an installation who’s waste polluted dutch waters for years, because one company took in all the waste and pretended to pump it onto a barge, but in fact dumped it in the water next to the barge. This happened on a non descript terrain in a sparsely populated area by people that lived private lives. That did not want to be known.

Truth : Industry does not care about human lives

We read in the news that German chemical factories are once again polluting the Rhine, which ends in the North Sea and supplies the dutch with drinking water. They used to pollute the Rhine much worse, but then they where forced to clean up, but now new chemicals are being produced that do not fit the restrictions. It is an endless process of running after companies that just dump their waste through the route of least resistance.

Golden rule : Be boring and inconspicuous

The people in the polluting industry are not world news. They are smarter if they remain inconspicuous. High pay of CEOs is less in companies that want to offer no grip for resistance, critical judgement or even agression. If you earn 200,000 Euro in Europe you can have a nice life, with your family. Only in highly competitive jobs, like in banking, something many people can do, you see that pay rises to insane heights. This is also a result of the fact that there is no oversight on contracts, or very little. We worry about banks, and we should, because they finance industry that may as we speak introduce another chemical or product that will damage lives for decades if not centuries to come.


Internet Passports

The internet is an open network through which computers can connect. Each computer has an addres, its IP address, which usued to be 4 times a number between 0 and 255 (ipv4), now it is an 128 bit address (a bit can be 1 or 0) that can look like this 2001:0db8:85a3:0000:1319:8a2e:0370:7344 (ipv6). If you look up the website your computer goes to a special server, a DNS server, asks for the address above (say ) Then goes sends a message to this address, which is like a sound, that has to go through a maze, first room 255 doors, take door 64, second room 255 doors, take door 233, third room 255 doors, take door 160, last room, 255 doors, take door 0.

Behind door 0 is our computer. It listens to what happens at the door, it opens the door when you arrive with your message, it takes the message and depending on what it is it does something with it. The message can be send to a server, like the one from Google, and read “give me search results for bikini”. You can find out that message yourself by typing bikini in Google, you read the address bar when the results show up, it will read like this :

So that’s the message you send through the door, the reply that Google send you is the page you are looking at. This is how the internet works, and you can basically type any computers addres, by name or by IP, and send messages to them. The internet is open that way, and the amount of messages send across it daily to all kinds of addresses, be it your mobile phone or PC or server or refrigurator is mostly unobstructed.

We don’t realize how many machines are connected to this same open internet today, even as the numbers are increasing. They are not only PCs, tablets, mobiles, but also watercookers, gates, factories, waterlocks, bridges, trafficlights.. All these machines are increasingly linked up to the same network because the parts are cheap and the protocols used are wll known. This is increasing the vulnerability of our infrastructure, factories, universities and even government to hacking. Even if you cut off computer networks from the outside world, a small real life hack (so someone breaking and entering and hooking up a Wifi hotspot or ethernet link where it shouldn’t exist) suddenly expose your hardware to extreme remote control.

The internet can let people who are on the other side of the planet control your computer

An insulin pump that is exposed on the internet, and a patient database in a hospital that is exposed by hackers, could combine in the administration of a lethal insuline dose to a patient with undesirable political affiliation.

We read about ransomware, which is software that is accepted by computers that locks up data and only makes it available again if the right password is used, which can only be bought with hard to trace bitcoing. These kinds of acts are now common, and large institutions are paying $100.000 to not be disrupted.

Once you delve into the world of hacking and what has been happening a picture emerges of tower blocks full of programmers in China, of ransomware criminals in Russia working for Putin. The black market in worms and trojan horses (software to get other software on your PC) is triving, and countries like the US operate multi year programs to hack systems of enemies (they destroyed Irans nuclear centrifuges through a software hack). It is as one of the journalists specializing in it calles it “a war nobody sees”. It is no longer a game, the internet can be weaponized.

The open internet is like an open gate

Net neutrality is a different topic from what we are talking about here. Net neutrality means that different consumers do not get different access to the same servers within a network of a country. To some providers it makes sense to reduce the bandwith of some customers, because they are low value and increase that of others, because they are high value. A bit like keeping the homeless out of a shopping mall. The problem with that is that people pay for access to the internet, and the ones that want to block access do not own the interent. So the shops in the shopping mall that want to keep out the homeless do not own the grounds outside their shop, that is public space! This is another discussion. What this post is about is international warfare through the internets.

To protect a country it may become necessary to vet the traffic coming in. To filter traffic which is energy intensive, so attacks and worms and other hacks get less chance for succes. Of cours this is already going on. Hackers and cyber criminals take over servers in the cloud or elsewhere to do their bidding, for some attacks that is essential, the MDOS attacks basically storm the door of a server until it drops out of its hinges then the protocol breaks down and the server becomes unprotected (highly suggestive, a bit like people).

It seems inevitable that more barriers will be formed when it comes to access over the internet. An internet passport will be hard to avoid. Artificial intelligence can also play a role and is now being used to recognize suspicious patterns in traffic. Those can be countered with AI systems intent to penetrate through such defences. The task of filtering traffic is hard, and even the certificate systems, used to determine if traffic is from a reliable source, have been hacked. Any security officer of critical infrastructure will want to take the local network offline, but what do you do with the traffic lights, bridges, gas pumps, water pumps etc. ?

Every connection a VPN connection?

VPN (Virtual Private Networks) have been used for a long time, and are still used, even though it proved hackable and hacked several times. VPN creates a secure interaction, where each message send and recieved between computers on the internet is checked against certificates (usually in the hands of third parties). The advantage of a VPN connection between me and my workplace for instance is that nobody can eavesdrop on the interaction, no data can be stolen as it is encrypted as it travels from door to door, and only I can establish the connection, so the reciever, my company, also knows its me and not somebody else.

Most websites create a kind of VPN when you access them now, if the site url reads HTTPS:// (the S stands for Secure) your connection to that webserver (websites are messages from webservers) is exclusive to you, all your communication is encrypted and unreadable for outsiders or intercepters. Google wants you to use HTTPS:// for your website because it also prevents hacking of such websites, for instance making you order more stuff than you want and shipping it to the hacker’s address. VPN and HTTPS are good starting points of securing the interents better, in simple terms, ALL connections will have to be secure.

Every connection will be a VPN like connection

The only drawback of that is that constantly encrypting and decrypting all traffic is energy intensive and time consuming. Even though Moore’s law is not dead (another 100x inprovement to go) it is a burden, so you rather have a system where some traffic can be free and some is restricted to secure protocols. We’re not discusisng quantum computers being able to crack all these protocols for now, or Samsungs new algorithm that seems to be as quick. It seems inevitable that whoever owns an internet connection will have to get a liscense or passport which gives him/her access to some or all of the available address space. From the moment you want ot buy stuff online you need to be secure at all time or some hacker will reach your PC at night, because you let a worm in that activates, and this hacker may install software that scans your passwords to access your money or hijacks your PC for evil purposes.

An intelligent monitoring system can quickly detect users that behave differently, ones that scan IPs for example, but it is not easy to monitor traffic because a data package is usually only what it is. when it travels through a wire you can not see it, when it is transferred you can only read part of it, data is somewhat like light, a photon travels millions of years through space, unseen only to be registered at its destination. We live in an increasingly insecure world, so it seems internet licsences and passports will have to become commonplace soon.

Climate Realization

What goes through the mind of a person that has experienced natural reality and has learned that it has hard limits. You can not hold a lighter under a match for long, it will burst into flames. You can’t sit in a pool of gasoline smoking a sigaret, you have to have a deathwish. We have had experiences of all kinds that teach us where the limits are in our behaviour and our environment. We respect those limits.

So we may know scientists. The problem is many people don’t, they don’t know that most scientist are very much aware of what is true and what isn’t. They are constantly checking, they don’t believe because they know reality can confuse them, they measure, check, measure the tool they use to measure, then measure 1000 times then say “Ï see that in 90% of cases the result is XYZ”. They are carefull, treat their topic as something of great value that resist being known. You have to empthize with them for taking that care, because they do it for the greater good they believe in, or because nature seems to tell them NO, and they want YES, or because it will cure people.. Money is usually one of the last things on their minds.

If you can follow and believe the following logic :

  • CO2 increases in the atmosphere
  • CO2 absorbs heat radiation
  • The Earth can no longer radiate out heat as much as it could
  • Heat builds up in ocean and atmosphere
  • The Earth warms
  • The average temperature rises
  • Life can only exist in a certain temperature range
  • Many parts of the planet will get too humid hot for life
  • Growing crops will become next to impossible
  • Survival for humanity will become next to impossible





What is a sane person to do? The halls of politics are populated by people that do not wish to give up any luxury, in fact they seem to strive for as much luxury in their own lives and are selling out anyone that doesn’t oppose them. Politics in Holland is largely disfunctional because it is run by corrupt people who seem to have lost hope.

The dream you have ambitions for in 20 years will not come true

A sane person with courage would give up anything that increase the problem, and if it was really impossible would find solutions to whatever still increases it, and then would start to fight it. Many people are sane in that respect. The larger part however is NOT.

Getting rid of economic forcing

The biggest obstacle that restricts us from action is our economic predicament, mainly, usually our obligation to pay for our mortgage and rent. We need to consider failing to do so just like happend in the sub-prime crisus in 2008. The bank does NOT need your mortgage money. There should be an undestanding that if you are willing to minimize your CO2 footprint and fight climate change, you are given title to live where you are now. The big risk is you can’t stay there because of the calamity. So you live for free but you serve the climate fight.

Stopping unnecessary CO2 emitting activities

You car a car tuning company? Stop it. You are a web design company? Stop it, You are a nail studio? Stop it. You are a holiday planing agency? Stop it. Stop activities that cause CO2 emissions, stop activities that are not needed. Big companies are not exempt. You sell sugary drinks? Your name is Coca Cola? Stop it!

This is where the topic of this post clashes with normal rule of law. Rule of law is undermined right now by the right pro-fossil demogogues.

Starting necessary activities

The necessary activities are performed by many companies at the moment, but the judgement of which company is doing good and which isn’t is not up to anyone trying to maximize economic value. There is very little true planning of emergency activities. There is talk of CCS and Hydrogen etc. but these are again delay strategies of the fossil fuel industry. Energy has to be allocated to finding out how to do things automatically, how to build the necessary robots, how to apply them to grow biomass where it is hard now, how to build cheap desalination mechamisms.

Patents are certainly in the way of wide adoption of beneficial ideas. There is a new way to fuse Hydrogen into Boron to generate energy, it could mean small safe fusion reactors, but the idea has been patented. There is a way to use Prussian Blue to make Potassium and Sodium batteries, they would be very cheap, but what happened is that a bunch of possibilities have been patented and you can’t really buy cheap Sodium or Potassium batteries. There needs to be a rule that bans patents on necessary technology.

Flight Restrictions

Flying causes about 2% of global pollution. Just like everyone the airline industry claims it has a marginal effect on the CO2 concentration. The simple fact is that everyone has to cut emissions, emissions have to become strongly negative as soon as possible, so any emissions should be reduced and eliminated, that that may mean eliminating some activities in the short term. Here an example of how to go about it..

Airfuel is not taxed and contains toxins to prevent molding. Stay away from airports to avoid leukemia

So who should fly? Who absolutely has to be able to move from A to B at the speed airtravel allows, between continents across the globe. Everyone will say “Me! Me! Me!” but of course that isn’t true.

Tourist : Nope. No need for airtravel to just be somewhere.

Businessmen : Nope, in 99% of cases nope. Make a video or phone call, do business on your own continent. The CEO of a company? Maybe to avoid eavesdropping on conversations. They should use specialist secure communication methods. They can afford clean energy powered transportation too.

Politicians : Maybe, because of privacy issues. Our political area is increasingly controlled, so no candidate can even enter without having been vetted for his/her ideology. Luckily there are not many.

Artists : Maybe, some, but they don’t make up the bulk of the travelers.

Surgeons : Also specialists, specially talented or experienced people that can’t work remotely you may want to let fly.

A good test of the rules is that the volume of flights crashes to about 2% of the present volume. Another good test is that nobody dies because of the rules. If nobody dies, you can make the rules stricter. Of course you should avoid any casualties.

Hyperloop from the UK to Ireland?

At the same time the development of solar electric and battery electric flight has to be stimulated. Hyperloop development should be subsidized. Sail ships, hydrofoil ships. That’s what real climate action would look like.
