Eco-talk by Russell Berns
What needs to happen right now for the future
Every scientist or Greenbuilding council member
I have interviewed said energy consumption is an international
state of emergency, in fact proceeding global
warming. If China reaches our standard of living, humanity will need
6 more planets to sustain ourselves. China is
going in the right direction, they are seeking alternative energy,
I know of Venture Capitalist scouring the globe
for renewable energy designs and China is going to build the
largest navy ever, a blue navy using hydrogen.
What do we need to do? How do we go about doing it?
These are the questions I have answered, and
this is what the scientist want you to draft yourselves into, if you can.
First about the Alternative Energy industry; there
is a technology from Heliovolt, its a CIGS solar film a sandwich
of thin layers of copper, indium and gallium
selenide and the cost to start a processing plant is only 40 million,
The current silicon made photovoltiacs or PV
solar panels are expensive and for no good reason, the past decade
and more has brought an industry of price control
keeping silicon expensive. The start up for another Silicon plant?
500 million. So you see, CIGS solar film may
not seem profitable to the solar industry if they continue to set price
controls by regulating the amount of silicon
that can be manufactured. Friends like that who needs enemies.
So, in America where everyone eats meals that
took 1500 miles to get to your plate, America is in for a rough ride,
as of now. But not to fear, I am full of optimism,
When you listen to the energy design dreams from top scientists who
want to create energy farms and green the desert
using solar to make hydrogen and then interface with a CO2 emission
from say , a coal power plant. You use less coal
, trap the emissions and create a bio diesel that produces 250 times
more bio diesel than Soybeans in the form of
Algae or Urea fuels. Or just take the hydrogen and use industrial fuel
generators for power stations.
There are new water technologies that are so efficient,
solar desalination, sea water greenhouses that distill sea water
right from the greenhouse itself. If you
live near geo thermal then your really in luck, the Swedish inventions
remarkable as are their inventions turning energy
into waste. I personally love the invention out of Israel, its a
trash energy compactor, Israel also has great
water technologies and solar thermal, they turn solar heat at 1000 degrees
into energy, or the wind farms are great too.
Bottom line, the knights of the round table in my documentary will show
We can prepare for this transition but we have
to prepare for the changes using permaculture-design science soil
restoration methods or soil management to survive.
One of the founding fathers of international certification for organics
has just developed (using mushrooms) a way to
clean commercial agriculture from its toxic history in just 3 months
We can survive if we start greening the
desert. According to Mayans and now me from experience, information is
in very fast. The visions for solutions and the
technology are in acceleration. In 1995 the Mayans came out of the woods
and said the industrial era is over, its time
for us to speak. Since CNN has not given me the voice of the Mayans, maybe
I could speak for them.
I still dream that we can do something miraculous
to sustain a civilization that grew from a timeline in which huge populations
came about, through a concept of cheap energy.
And when I mean cheap, I mean it was easy to transport and break into energy.
Or as the industry calls it EROI-energy return
on investment. Fact, no matter what Industry and Government try to do,
can not possibly match the era of fossil fuel
energy consumption. So, humanity needs a cultural expedition. People need
discover the energy design dreams from the leaders
of men I have captured. They are connecting and networking the future
technologies, permaculture inventions and new
solutions that will empower villages and create sexy sustainability for
seeking to lessen carbon foot prints. The fact
is, the market will not create the drive we need to make this work.
We need a mission as great as the landing on
I can tell you that there are foundations starting
which are bringing these green communities into reality. Solar Hydrogen
co op communities are the new status designs
for the wealthy. They buy Islands and create off the grid sustainability.
I can't even
get the secret locations for shooting. Most of
these entities are private. As they should be. But Im here to tell you
that I have
figures that say 20 thousand per family at 4000
families will get you a complete energy farm and you can be a part of the
energy market. Living using the ocean for your
entire operations. Restoring the earth creating new origins of species,
permaculture is species care. So many visions
of things to make, like the Zoo I have in mind. To much to tell.
Government and Industry are not in the business
of creating local energy farms and independent communities. They
"You should not concern yourself with these matters
let us do the work", through ideas like nuclear power into hydrogen,
this is the worst EROI on the market and as of
now Oak Ridge National Laboratory is spending 800 million a year in
Research and development to try and bring these
results into a better EROI figure and into your home. Are you really
going to sit idle while Raytheon promotes microwaving
shale in Colorado? I say, " This is Our TIME!", our time to sneak
into the energy industry and create a profit
while greening the desert. How long will it take to rise up the American
create your own empowerment?
So how to get started, take a look at the permaculture
certification locations I have posted. Lincoln City Oregon and the
Willemette Valley network is my favorite choice
for the potential to learn these tools to help build these settlements.
Lincoln City council are promoting the
area, they want to be a model for the future green sustainable cities
The Mayor personally told me she wants as many
Americans to move to Lincoln City to begin this adventure of permaculture.
So I suggest moving to the area and look for
the education. Families will be recruiting permaculture designers so they
have a guide to assist them in living in there
new self sustainable investment, a spa, a solar ice hockey rink, my dream.
I cant wait to show my film. But in the mean time
you can get busy!!!!!!!!!
Choose a family member to represent you and he
will be ready to guide you into the new world designs.
THis is an emergency message.
