Kenitec energies in flowing streams suited for low head turbine

Most neglected but of great potential are kenetic energies in rivers/stsreams, sea waves, and wind. Torque is amplified by multiple propellers in a common shaft to power gear pumps. Several gear pumps can be connected in series to increase water pressure to that required by a low head electrric generator. Several headers from sets of gear pumps can be accumulated into an accumulator with a relief valve. The system can... more »

Tracefiers to remove pollutants from flue gases.

Carbon particulates up to three microns can be removed from flue gases. The process is to pass the polluted air through a duct where a solvent is sprayed across the flowing gas to lower than the saturation temperature at the pressure of the flue gas. Water can be used for most pollutans. Reactive fluids may be used to spray insoluble gases to precipitate the pollutants in the air. The suspended pollutants are dissoved... more »

The Making of the Future--A film for our future generations

I am a documentary filmmaker who is currently working on an environmental film about not only the current crisis, but solutions to the problems that we face. I have been thinking green for over 40 years and I consider this to be a culmination of my life's work. As a one woman independent film crew, it has taken me about a year, traveling the world, to gather all my material. All that I am asking is that you take 5 minutes... more »

Global Warming

Mitigation of Global Warming at this late date will be HUGELY expensive and need a three-prong approach:1 buy sustainable energy equipment and barter it with foo big to fail fossil fuel firms for fossil fuel reserves to be held underground for posterity, 2 Buy fossil fuel reserves, 3 carbon capture and storage

Facing the facts head on!

It has been determined that "aquatic warming" is the key factor linked to the rapid decline of the planetary ice, and not just the atmospheric CO2 build-up. We cannot ignor this factor. The oceans are the greatest conductor of thermal energy on the planet. We must restore that which we've altered. We can do this in a cost effective manner by investing in projects that will create a return or substancial benefit. And there... more »

Factors that humanity might be unaware of.

The reason that the planetary ice is melting ten times faster than the CO2 related predictions, is because the condition is actually being triggered by the neutralization of the normally predominant downwards direction of conduction within the planets colder regions. This is due to the aquatic thermal build-up created by mankinds massive thermal contribution into the oceans, which has accumulated due to the fact that... more »

Our greatest potential impact wiin the shortest amount of time.

To properly address "Global Warming" as quickly and aggressively as possible, and to do so in a cost effective manner. Humanity needs to start addressing "Aquatic Warming" just as aggressively as it has addressed CO2's, because it is at least as large a contributing factor that has even more potential to stabilize or moderate the climate. But before we can go any further and start implementing systems and measures, we... more »

Desert based elevated solar, with crop growth.

If elevated solar structures were placed in the deserts, then crops might be growable in the shade created by the structures, which could also hold the watering system. On a large scale this would create a cooling affect by converting the solar energy into electricity and by having the vegetation obsorb much of the remaining filtered light energy. This would be a very cost effective measure of compensation, for it's size.... more »

The harvesting of natural aquatic thermal sources.

To help compensate for humanities massive aquatic thermal contribution that has accumulated. We should seriously consider a tax for every substantial identifiable aquatic thermal contributor, to fund the effort of either harvesting or venting off many of the natural sources of aquatic thermal contribution. Such as thermal vents and stabilized volcanic fishers. To help compensate for our human contribution. This can be... more »

Reducing humanities aquatic thermal footprint.

In our effort to address aquatic warming, humanity needs to tax, restrict, reduce, and redirect as much of the current source of aquatic thermal contamination. To help stop and reverse the effects of our human related aquatic thermal accumulation. Our thermal contribution has accumulated, because teh oceans have a predominant downwards direction of conduction. We need to seriously address this problem, just as aggressively... more »

Reforestation and vegetation

Because deforestation has greately contributed to atmospheric warming, humanity needs to insist that everyone involved in timber removal is properly taxed, to insure that reforestation and revegetation efforts are taking place. Also, all solar projects need to receive the best tax incentives and funding possible, because converting solar energy into electricity helps to cool the planet by reducing the solar thermal contribution... more »

Types of systems that can address global warming.

In tropical regions where the waters are extremely hot, yet very calm. Elevated solar structures can create surface cold-spotting, thus venting, while also converting the suns solar contribution into valuable electricity. Also, desert based elevated solar electric structures also promote cooling, in a cost effective manner, while allowing the potential for crops to be grown in the shade of the structures. These are just... more »

Cooling the oceans back down.

Humanity can aggressively address aquatic warming, simply by imposing much stricter regulations against continued aquatic thermal contamination. Taxes and tax incentives can be imposed. All weapons testing and other unnecessary thermal sources should be banned around the globe. All sea going vessels, nuclear reactors, city sewers, factories, industry, agriculture etc…on the open waters and along the shoreline should have... more »

raise awareness

Hello

My name is Dean Carroll.I am a normal workimg 24 year old living in Australia.
I care for the environment and worry about global warming.I believe people especially young people are not educated enough on these major issues facing humanity.I recently watched two very good documentaries called Surviving Progress and the 11th Hour.These programs are show on TV but not enough.Al Gore also has a good documentary... more »
