  • The key to “growing your own money”

  • Heating the world with the Rocket Stove

    More than ever, the world is in need of methods that will dramatically reduce carbon footprints while maintaining the productivity of essential processes.

  • Turning waste into ‘gold’

    Amid all of the recent human interruptions in terms of addressing climate change, nature has begun to fight back devoid of opinion. People can only stand in awe at the power of natural disasters, and it’s a scientific fact that they are worsening as our climate tilts further off...

  • Freedom Culture and The Valhalla Movement

    The climate change rhetoric has become redundant lately. Not because it’s any less true, but because there is a bombardment of dramatic environmental news happening on a global scale, and most of the world now agrees that it is definitely escalating. Events seem to occur so often that it’s...
  • The Future of Food

  • The Aid of Remittances
