Part 2: Planet Buddha

November 18, 2010

Water energy is fine, but large dams affect the ecosystem. Wind is fine unless the towers are built with scarce resources. Bio-fuels are not fine because we need the soil for biodiversity. Natural gas and oil are not fine for it takes millions of years to replenish them. Geothermal is fine. Fusion is fine, but tiny compared to the sun. Fission creates radioactive waste. Solar energy is so good we don’t even need to consider any other energy sources.

Combined with efficient and sustainable batteries we’ve essentially solved the energy question. Batteries are necessary for mobility/individualism/decentralization.

Also a big part of resource management is human waste management, because there are almost 7 billion humans on earth; that’s a lot of molecules and a lot of food and a lot of poo.

Malaco – Truly Fruity

May 14, 2009

Malaco apparently spreading plastic, protective thingies around amongst bikers in the city. Make of it what you will. Is it environmentally friendly plastic? Could it be a positive use of global resources protecting bike seats, making them last longer this way? Or is it simply advertising to make as much money as possible without any Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) going  on.
