Green Initiative: Just Another Market

1 year, 7 months ago

Lately I have gotten quite into learning all there is to know about green technology, rammed earth building and basically anything that can help thrust our world to a better, more loving place.

At first, It made 0 sense to me why this is not yet happening. Most people have this reaction when I start telling them about building out of the earth and the overwhelming beauty of such settlements.

Another observation is that whenever this sort of thing happens, right now it seems people are forced to completely separate from society. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but without these concepts being out there in sprawling urban sectors we will never see our vision of a better future manifest.

I have recently discovered instances where big projects, focused on sustainability and building a world which changes depending on the world’s resources struggle to put aside the current zeitgeist of selfishness and see their efforts as opportunity for personal gain and profit. It breaks my heart.

Do you think the world is ready for this shift? What do we do to stimulate a process based on love and mutual fundamental gain (not money)? Have you seen any concrete examples of this hurdle? If it was overcome how did it happen and what can we do to avoid it?

Also, if you are into this sort of thing and from Los Angeles or the surrounding area, let me know. I would love to talk to you.

I have worked for some green companies and seen some amazing work done. Some buildings I have worked on have blown my mind in what they have done and what they can do.

I think they do need to happen no matter the cost. Many people I work with and for have not adapted well to it. The shift has come quick and in some cases too quick for companies and the old workers to adapt.

The big problem in England is that many of these buildings are already far behind what is now available. It is getting like computers in some respects. You build something and it is already outdated. I am forever needing to change designs and update thing old ones. Sometimes they change so fast that the final plan I make is no longer valid.

I think it is something that will never stabilize. Unlike old buildings and technology this is forever changing. I am now looking at buildings that are alive! They have living walls and are built to grow food and produce their own air and even food.

If you just look at paint you can now get living paint that is being used in Venice to keep the buildings up. Things are moving so quick that I am sure when it is done we will have something even better.

I am sure we will soon see buildings use graphene in some way. When this starts to happen in bulk I am sure everything will change again.

I am sure soon Green will just be standard.

Do you have any pictures or some info I could look at on the living paint and walls? That sounds fucking sweet. So far I have been thinking with like earth bag/rammed earth building and similar things.

It would only be logical that that is the next step.

Im afraid I don’t entirely understand graphene and what it means for building could you give me a quick rundown?

If you are ABLE to watch this:

It will show you many green things.

I am EXTREMELY interested in aquaponics.

This video is only a 2 system. Just using fish and plants. Some uses many more. I have seen ones that use animals such as rabbits and also Bees.
