  2. The Tech Zone
    This is an interesting device as waste heat is pretty common: on your car, on your roof in summer, on lots of places in the summer, on AC coils, and more. It would be nice if this would be converted to a reasonably priced consumer device. I've been hearing about this tech since at least 2012...

    My wife and I have been looking for a piece of land on the outskirts of the small city we currently live in and WE THINK WE FINALLY FOUND IT! We wanted somewhere between five and ten acres, this piece of land is 9.16 acres. It backs right up to some very pretty foothills and though the land...

    Last year, there were 145... these types of attacks can shutdown systems controls, leaving onsite workers helpless to correct the problems.

    Though I do not have a decent grade to use a microhydro powersystem, I was wondering if it would be a good idea it use microhydro in a landscaping water feature to reduce the amound of power needed to run the water pump. I have a plan to create an 80 foot long stream starting with a fountain...

    Just passing along some info I discovered in my travels. The element copper is vital to human health. The western diet is deficient in this element, which is necessary for cardiovascular health. I discovered I was very deficient in copper about 6 months ago. It can cause varicose veins...

    Interesting. German industry (and military) ought to applaud the move. Taking households off these finite fuel sources will alleviate the coming shortages. Oh, and household energy security will alleviate the political pressure to divert more finite fuel to the voters (and increase access for...

    I have been looking at energy solutions for TEOTWAWKI. The biggest current draw is my well pump. I live in the Southeast in a rural area, so getting water would not be impossible, but I thought that was a good place to start. I estimated about 5KW. The scenario this is addressing would be long...

    Now I've seen posts here about Nettle, a volunteer plant with so much potential, but nothing on the seed. Last year, I was reading an article by Susun Weed (a pretty well known herbalist) and she briefly mentioned nettle seed. I was intrigued and did some more research. My research showed that...

    This is common sense stuff, but I found it interesting that they gave values to layers of clothing to show how much energy vs how many layers of clothing to remain comfortable. Saving 30%-40% of your heating energy just by wearing some thermal underwear is an interesting concept, especially if...

    I hear a lot about "Peak Oil" and other energy crisis from the fear mongers and I wanted to see what the real numbers are and they are STAGGERING!
