This One Simple Trick Could Dramatically Cut Climate Change

This One Simple Trick Could Dramatically Cut Climate Change

by Francis P. Koster, Ed.D.

Local communities and major corporations both have an unrecognized chance to reverse the trends in climate change/global warming dramatically.  This opportunity exists because according to the scientists one of the major gasses causing problems lives around 12 years[1].  If we can stop adding this one gas to the environment we could rather quickly see a slowing of the damage it causes. 

Think of our environment like a campfire.   If you want to make it burn slow and steady, you add wood on log at a time.  If you want to make the fire burn explosively, you pour gasoline on it.  If you don’t want to increase the fla…

We Can Stop Climate Change

by Francis P. Koster, Ed.D. 

Local communities and major corporations both have an unrecognized chance to reverse the trends in climate change/global warming dramatically.  And it's not about buying a smaller car, or using less electricity.  

This opportunity exists because according to the scientists one of the major gasses causing problems only lives around 12 years[1].  If we can stop adding this one gas to the environment we could rather quickly see a slowing of the damage it causes.

Small Scale Farming Co-ops Can Create Jobs While Preventing Misery

by Francis P. Koster, Ed.D.

Unless something is done to increase food production substantially, food availability per citizen worldwide will drop almost in half over the next 35 years.[1]  This is because the population of the world is increasing, while historic farm areas are having production reduced by changing climate.   

The increasing drought in the west and flooding in Texas point to an opportunity for North Carolina, which may not be factored into our economic development plans yet.

If we seize this opportunity, we can help prevent even more misery being piled on top of the one in nine world citizens who are currently malnourished and without adequa…

Citizens Taking The Law Into Their Own Hands For Public Good

by Francis P. Koster, Ed.D.

North Carolina citizens have access to new low cost weapons that can be used to protect families. Some people who want to use these weapons are organizing themselves into self-defense groups, claiming that the existing government institutions are not doing their job.

Tens of thousands of chemicals in use today that have not been tested for their impact on humans.  The number of these chemicals and the volumes used daily are growing rapidly. [1]   Science has shown that these chemicals are entering our bodies and causing changes to our children’s cells, their food, and our climate at a frightening rate.  For example, one study found 2…

Innovative Public Water System Design

by Francis P. Koster, Ed.D.

A surprising amount of the drinking water in the United States has already been used by toilets and passed through an old sewage treatment plant upstream, and back into a river where the next city downstream drinks from it.

The river also gets run-off from farms and feedlots, and storm water from parking lots. To this add new generation bad stuff including industrial, home cleaning and agriculture chemicals, and drugs, all mixed into the human waste, making a whole new brew unknown 50 years ago.

This is the raw material that our drinking water is made from.

In addition to old sewage treatment plants, many of these drinking water preparation plants are also old and do no…
