Taste Palace

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

Found an amazing place right outside of Siena where they , , fruits, vegetables, herbs, nuts… all in balance or promiscuo as they say. Not a vineyard, not a farm… I call it a taste palace, maybe there’s a better name out there. I might work with them to install a major solar setup and some biohydrogen generating algae ponds. In my dreams, right?

The Answer is Simple

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

I’ve been thinking about this a lot over the past year, and its vibration is now a part of my consciousness. The key to not only my success in life, but the and success of our planet is quite simply women. They bring balance, they bring harmony, they bring resourcefulness and renewability… yet most importantly they bring love.

I’ve been working with an amazing company here in Philadelphia called SEER Interactive and it hit me last week in our company wide meeting sitting around the whole office together with 11 women and 3 men. It was one of the best meetings I’ve ever been a part of. Not only was it relaxed, humorous, and productive, more so than most meetings I’ve attended, but I left with an overwhelming sense of peace… something I’ve never felt before in endless male dominated board, class, and conference rooms.

Nature to the Grid: Renewable Homes

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

I’d like to propose a new idea.

The green movement has no doubt tipped into the public’s consciousness, and yet still hasn’t been consolidated into a feasible, economic starting point. I attempted to unify the myriad of and consumption/waste innovations in my last post with the concept of ‘’, and will now attempt to expand on it further. The question is where can the average person start incorporating this concept into their life to not just benefit their ecolistic mentality and , but to save and make more money?

In continuance of our nature to the grid dialogue, I’ve come to the conclusion that it starts, from both an ecological and economical standpoint, with people taking a proactive role in turning their home into a renewable power station… turning their home into a ‘tree’ if you will.

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

I’m not going to give you the old, if we don’t save the , we’re just signing a death wish for our [great]* grandchildren. I’m just going to list out a couple of reasons I give people during conversations on why we should save the .. here they are:

 

  1. We would be keeping the bears happy…  I mean seriously.. look at this fellow.  He’s enjoying a little splash in the water without a care in the world.   If we don’t make an effort to save the environment, this is going to be a grumpy bear without any place to go other than your little league baseball bleachers or crashing your back yard.

Nature to the Grid: Bioenergy

Saturday, January 17th, 2009

The leaf is the primary site of photosynthesis...
Image via Wikipedia

is a loaded word with many different meanings and ideas associated with it. I’m wondering what concept will bring it all together?

From a production () standpoint, you’ve got solar, wind, geothermal, tidal, hydro, and ethanol. And with consumption, you have to ask how are we going to create products, how are we going to deal with waste, and where are we going to get our food and water?

When you start looking at all these variables, you seem to get to the root of the sustainability problem… it’s very fragmented. There needs to be a new holistic approach that attacks the whole issue. Where do we get our energy, our food, and a new paradigm for products and waste? To us, the answer is quite clear… it’s found in nature, where the essence is growth. our food, our energy, our resources. It’s all about growth energy… bioenergy.
