Hi Jan-K, the concept is well established even by big players such as GE, who even offer to finance new infrastructure and run it for a certain period of time. However: most municipalities are entrenched in existing old technology and slow to adopt new approaches.

Dear Carl Fischer, You are perfectly right. As in most cases regarding mitigation of climate change the tecnhology needed is already well established. And if the big players even offer finance, even money shouldn´t be the issue. Perhaps the biggest obstacle is fear of new, or preference to old and familiar technology.

Your suggestion https://www.climatecolab.org/web/guest/plans/-/plans/contestId/1301501/planId/1314904 seems to tackle both of these questions by suggesting both finance and creation of awaraness. Both are indeed equally needed.

Respected Sir, Parts of plants & fruits unused by mankind except seeds which should be used as per https://www.climatecolab.org/web/guest/plans/-/plans/contestId/1300103/planId/1310401 can form good manure, fertilizer; easier than dealing with human excreta, increase green cover with the seeds themselves, involve all age groups in collecting storing and distributing the seeds easily. So this is best initial step.

Dear Jan-K, you are spot on. It is indeed mostly the preference for existing technology and as most decision makers are more concerned with their careers than the environment....there is a "natural" barrier to overcome.

Jan, This type of permaculteralist approach to energy/water (carbon) management is the core of much of the work I'm offering. Also, you may wish to see the following link: http://janickibioenergy.com/s200.html Best regards, Michael
