Something Off-Beat, Very Cool, and Almost a Rant

As most of you regulars here at Free Spirit know, I am working with my son in a new ‘green’ business, called ONE … and acronym for ‘Organically Nurtured Earth’. And under the umbrella of the mother LLC, we have a startup enterprise we call ‘One Compost’ – which produces, well … organic compost. We are also interested in all things green, renewable energy sources, recycling ‘waste’ materials into reusable materials and power sources, etc., and we do a lot of research along those lines, looking for various ways to expand our business’s products and services.

Recently, while looking into biogas — part of a search we were doing on how to heat homes, make hot water, and provide electricity using compost as the energy source, we came across this amazingly innovative technology already being employed in France. Take 3 minutes to watch this clip. You will, I assure you, be quite impressed.

Pretty cool, hmm? And encouraging … one of the many resourceful ways to take natural materials around us here on this celestial body and use them to create harmless, renewable, cost-effective and envirnmentally not-only-friendly-but … nurturing energy and by-product materials. Without having to rely on burning fossil fuels.

Paying any attention, you egregiously profit-mad, uncaring and bullying oil companies? Soon we will not need you any longer … unless you wise up, and soon.

Okay, let me stop … this is turning into a rant, lol. That’s all today, folks, thanks for blogging in, chow!

    We definitely need to look at other things for energy. With the recent problems with food, we also need to look at growing more ourselves. Sounds like you and your son are headed in a very good direction.

    My son is in the same field, Marvin. Got his Ph.D in environmental science and is passionate about solving the solid waste dilemma. Best of luck to you and your son in this endeavor. It is so needed.

    Very cool! And I agree – the oil companies have had their run, made tons of money at our and the environment’s expense, and it is TIME FOR A CHANGE!!!

    I still wonder why methane is not used as it burns hot and clean. We have the source everywhere, look at the California happy cows. Instead of saying “Oh sh**, another cow pie”, we should be saying, “Sh** is the new power source. They use it in dragsters. Granted it burns hot, but a simple retooling of the engines would allow it to be used in any vehicle.

    So, when your car runs out of gas, back it up to a cows back end.

    Great post and great idea.

    Best wishes for your success. The world is changing fast and many people want to get off the grid so to speak. Unfortunately, even though developed countries can do this in the near future, developing regions in Cebtral and South America, Africa, and Asia will need to go through the fossil fuel stage before entering a gridless society.
