That's kind to say, but I would say it's more intuition than brain-smarts...sometimes I worry that I reach out too far over the Kantian border, because like a digital shaman I'm trying to experience the unseen possible directions for us to take our field of consciousness. Anyway, as NO FUN as making milk for Google might be, it clearly has a mesmerizing effect (think about how people walk with their phones, slower and more docile, or netflix and chill to zone out and distract from the world's problems). My question is, apart from the identity-issue and the fear of mesmerization and manipulation despite safeguards, why don't we produce active data for our own purposes in context like #farming, #vokü, #citizenscience, #dating etc to make more of a...

HOW TO FEED MANKIND

What can „the West“ do?

„the West“ can start cultivating food in raised beds in towns. „the West“ can start community gardens and oblige every citizen to work their own 500m2 of land for a healthy exercise and locally grown food.

Now to the Southamerica: Brazil wants to turn all of the rain forest into agricultural land in an unsustainable „copy the west“ fashion.

Where are the #guardianangels?

In times of crisis, violence is the weakest link. Hope sets us apart from the other animals. Not that we hope, but how we hope.

How could you hope for cracking heads? What are state-sponsered police other that the class-creation of private security? Regardless of how many examples intelligent and responsible police chiefs can raise for effective and courteous police forces, especially the most intelligent among them would accept that a successful or failing fascist regime would seek to establish a police/army like the Gem Hadar, a force drug-enabled...

Combining Solar & Farming Benefits Both - Crop Productivity Can Improve But So Can PV Panel Efficiency In Hot Weather


Fraunhofer ISE in Germany was one of the first to experiment with combining solar and farming on the same land. Its early research found doing so increases the productivity of the land significantly — up to 60% or more in some cases. Now researchers at the University of Arizona have confirmed the benefits of growing crops beneath the shade provided by solar panels — more electricity, higher yields, and less water used. That last part is of vital interest to farmers in Arizona where access to water for irrigation is crucial.

“We found that many of our food crops do better in the shade of solar panels because they are spared from the direct sun,” says Baron-Gafford. “In fact, total chiltepin fruit production was three times greater under the PV panels in an agrivoltaic system, and tomato production was twice as great!” Jalapenos produced a similar amount of fruit in both the agrivoltaics system and the tradition...

"Before the climatology scam began, the CIA wrote a memorandum named “Climate Control“. Under the conditions of post WWII and ongoing cold war. After 20 years of research the development and usage of climate control methods was proposed and the official implementation started with this memorandum. . The paper reveals not only the intention of global water grabbing (GWG) for desert farming and climate control as WMD of “Goephysical Warfare“, but climate control as the main reason for the development of nuclear energy! . According to this paper the nuclear power plants are proposed as the source of magnitude energy, required for climate control!"

‘Orchard of France’ is badly hit by extreme weather that has killed two people

France will declare a state of natural disaster after rain and hail storms lashed a swathe of the south-east on Saturday, devastating crops.

The flash storms, which brought hailstones as big as pingpong balls to some areas, killed two people in France and Switzerland, and injured at least 10 others.

Vox became the first far-right party to enter Spain’s parliament since the Franco era when it won 24 seats in the general election. Last week, the party fought its first mayoral campaign in El Ejido, a town in Andalucia with a population of 90,000 people, 30% of whom are migrants, often working in the 150 sq miles of fruit and vegetable greenhouses that surround the town. We follow the campaign and talk to Spaniards and migrants to find out why this socialist stronghold of 40 years is turning to the right

Climate Change “Amplified” Bomb Cyclones, Droughts, Flooding, Heatwaves, Hurricanes And Wildfires Don’t Discriminate Between Democrats And Republicans. Hence, Climate Change Shouldn’t Be A Partisan Issue.

Yet, many republicans paint climate change as a “fake” issue peddled by democrats. Trump and other republicans do this because blocking climate change mitigation benefits coal and oil companies, which make substantial donations to the Republican Party.

Additionally, with climate change treated as a fake issue, republicans can avoid prudent spending on flood control all over the United States. America would have to raise taxes on big business and the wealthy to enhance the flood control areas in America that will be vulnerable to increased flooding over the next few decades.

Please note that rainfall has increased substantially in the Midwest since 1958. Given that human-influenced climate change has been affecting America since 1900, this finding dovetails well with climate change projections.

Agrophotovoltaics - Fraunhofer Reports Combining Farming With Solar 186% More Efficient In Summer Of 2018


For many people, solar power is seen as a threat to farming communities. That’s because they believe farmers must choose between raising crops or livestock and installing solar panels on their land. The Fraunhofer Institute has been conducting experiments in what it calls agrophotovoltaics for two years near Lake Constance, Germany. In the first year, it found the combination of solar and agriculture made the land 160% more productive than if it had been devoted exclusively to one or the other.

The Lake Constance farm mounts its solar panels 5 meters above the ground, leaving room for livestock and plants to grow and conventional farm equipment to operate beneath them. In comparison to open fields in the area, solar irradiation beneath the panels was about 30% less, the air temperature was identical, but soil temperatures in the spring and fall were lower.

So it seems with slightly different design combined with hotter climates, solar could well me... Show more...

Main method of this war is geophysical warfare!
