2.15pm: Bruce McBurney: The Answer to Cancer is The Air Pollution Solution

The Super-Electronic Fuel Conversion System is the answer to many problems (also known as a "Supercarburetor").
Early cancer research proved that less oxygen causes cancer. Everything that causes cancer falls into two categories: an oxidizer (something uses the oxygen) or something that prevents the transfer of oxygen into our system.
In 1850, cancer was 1 in 50 people, in 1900 1 in 35, now it's 1 in 3, forecasts are 75% will get cancer by the end of this century.
Some internal combustion engines can use hundreds of times more oxygen than a person breathes. Furthermore, the person only uses a portion of the oxygen and expels most back into the air.

Right now there are many researchers and inventors trying to get this supercarburetor technology on the market. If we can all work together through the Internet, through sharing information, we WILL make this technology available for EVERYONE!
Since 1996, the website has become an exposure and contact point for many. Many more inventors and researchers have surfaced than ever before, making an overwhelming body of evidence that the
claims are chemically and mechanically possible. But it is not profitable enough for those with political power, if vehicles are only using 1/5th of the fuel they do it?

# Hemp is one of the premier environmental alternatives to cotton or linen. It is popular among environmentalists and eco-shoppers.
# Industrial hemp is grown for the strong fiber that comes from the stalk of the plant. The fiber can be spun, woven and dyed into a strong and beautiful fabric.
# Hemp is not new to the United States. Two hundred years ago the first draft of the Declaration of Independence was written on hemp paper.
# Today, several states in the U.S are leading the way for hemp cultivation.
# The hemp plant is an annual crop that is grown from seed similar to corn or soybeans.
# It grows best in tropical climate zones or moderately cool zones such as the United States. Today most of the hemp cultivation takes place in Eastern Europe and Asia.
# Industrial hemp is naturally pest resistant and can be intercropped among existing forests.
# Fabrics made from hemp are stronger, more absorbent and more durable than cotton and linen.
# Hemp has been used for clothing, medicine and tools for centuries.
# Hemp is a renewable and sustainable resource. It can be grown without the clearcutting of forests.

Earthship Huts - Recycled Modular Buildings

No matter what anyone tells you, there are ALWAYS better alternatives to the mainstream.....

Jonah Reynolds explains how to build sound buildings with healthy energy and water systems mostly using by-products of our global society, such as tires, cans, glass and plastic bottles, paper and cardboard.

An explanation of one of the Earthships available: The most economical & versatile Earthship in terms of construction and building. Pre-designed drawings and partially prefabricated construction packages available. The "Off-the-rack" aspect makes this a very "user friendly" approach for the owner/builder. This unit can be the easiest first step into the Earthship method of living. Sizes begin at a 607 square foot "Nest" studio and go up to a 3 bed, 2 bath Earthship and larger.

* It can be delivered as a kit anywhere on the planet
* It can be adapted to any climate
* It comes in any size
* It comes as a split level for stepping up a hill
* North/south dimensions cannot change but east/west can be as long as you like
* It comes with an open end to the east or the west
* It comes with a garage entering in to the east or west
* Construction drawings aimed at the owner/builder and suitable for obtaining a building permit start at $2,500

Comfortable inside, with no fossil fuels - in any Climate
One of the most recently built Packaged Earthships reports a maximum low temperature of 64 degrees (for a brief time) early in the morning before sunrise after two cloudy days and a minus seventeen degree winter night. This is with no back up heating system what-so-ever. Newer models will expect 68 degrees to be the maximum low in similar conditions. This design has been built in hot wet climates and cold wet climates and has the potential of being slightly “tuned” to deal with a variety of extremes while not changing the basic building.

* Construction Material - Typically built with earth-rammed tires, but designs are also available for straw bale, concrete, or adobe at extra cost.
* Thermal Wrap - Rigid insulation around the building to isolate 6' x 6' block of mass from outer earth to stablize comfort of interior space.
* Electrical - Solar electricity with capabilities of wind, gas generator or conventional utility back up / grid-intertie.
* Water Heating - Gas on demand hot water with capability of solar hot water addition.
* Water Supply - Roof catchment water system into water storage cistern with capability of well or community water back up.
* Waste Water Treatment - Contained grey water and black water treatment and distribution system with capability of conventional septic or community sewage connection.
* Heating / Cooling / Ventilation - Solar, thermal heating and cooling with option of gas or fireplace back up.
* Appliances - Gas cooking, gas or solar electric refrigerators.
