Eliminating Stinky Urine

The NHS website gives various advice on what to do when you suddenly have stinky urine, some of which you should see your Doctor about. The NHS website does not, however, give information as to how to get rid of it. I have cured several people over the year by recommending eating honey monster puffs (formerly sugar puffs) at breakfast, which give the urine a nice sweet smell instead.

Support The Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill

This is a Private Members Bill (PMB). Many PMBs remain as a campaign tool, but it is possible to gather enough support inside and outside of Westminster so that they pass, like the successful campaign for the Climate Change Act (2008). This is why we need your support.


 

The Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill calls for:

  • the UK to make and enact a serious plan. This means dealing with our real fair share of emissions so that we don’t go over critical global rises in temperature

  • our entire carbon footprint be taken into account (in the UK and overseas)

  • the protection and conservation of nature here and overseas along supply chains, recognising the damage we cause through the goods we consume

  • those in power not to depend on technology to save the day, which is used as an excuse to carry on polluting as usual

  • ordinary people to have a real say on the way forward in a citizens’ assembly with bite


 

This bill has been developed with members of Extinction Rebellion, members of the successful Big Ask campaign that led to the Climate Change Act, and Power for People. The CEE Bill has been written with contributions from prominent scientists and academics.

An Improvement for Democracy


 

For some used to democracy just voting once a year is not enough, and like me you would like to be more active. Seth Wynes in his book ‘What you can do to reduce climate change’ states that politicians in Europe consider a petition to be number 7 on the list of things that would attract their attention. Some countries have a government website where the electorate are allowed to post petitions on subjects of their choice. In the UK there are 1,700 petitions on the site at the moment, if 10,000 sign then there is a government response, and if the petition gets up to 100,000 then it is debated in parliament. This is a definite improvement on democracy, although my self-funding low carbon plan never got listed because the person in charge of vetting the petitions claimed not to understand it! Still, out of 1,700 petitions there will be plenty that you agree with and would like to be taken seriously by the government and I recently signed over 200, so exercise your democratic voice and sign some yourselves.

Yours faithfully

We Need a Moore's Law for the Carbon Footprint of Computing

In the climate crisis we have to look at how to reduce the carbon footprint of our computing. This would involve minimising green house gasses at production, use, recycling, and deconstruction at end of life. Buying our products in carbon intensive China is a suicide mission, and we can be leading the way to getting a cleaner China by ensuring that our component producing companies use renewable energy to power construction, which is now cheaper than new build fossil fuels. Factory cooling can be most cheaply done by planting trees nearby rather than having air conditioning, as Google has found to good effect. As the United Nations is attempting to plant a trillion trees, every one counts; if we plant the trees in equilateral triangles we can plant 15% more trees. (for mathematical proof see: http://www.kadir-buxton.com/crow-s-footing-increases-crop-yield)

We must now design our tech to use as little electricity as possible, and have a Moore’s law for efficiency instead of speed. Every time there is an increase in computer speed the software becomes sloppier, we can reduce future energy consumption by improving software design, minimalism must be made to be more important than “bell and whistles.” Do we need a new version of our favourite game every year when a new extra difficult level could be downloaded? Bloatware must be confined to the past.

Mobile phones are renowned for having a battery that lasts for two years, and those phones that you can replace batteries with often die soon afterwards, this cynical design flaw should be removed by law. Refurbished tech should become a standard, once we break free from the tradition of replacing our tech every three years for insurance purposes we can have a Luddite policy of producing replacement parts for old tech (have you tried to get a replacement motherboard for one that has failed only to find you need a new chip and RAM as well?) New tech and software should only be allowed if it can be proven to cut CO2 emissions in the medium term, and this would have the effect of keeping prices down.

All of these policies would help to spread computing into the developing world, either as new, refurbished or free.

Clean Electricity in Just Eight Years for Free Will Double Fresh Water Supplies

The UK Conservative Government gives £10.5 billion in subsidies from our taxes to fossil fuel companies each year, which equates to £16,153,846 per constituency. With an average of 70,530 constituents in each constituency this works out as £229 generously donated by our caring government per person which leads to more CO2 and more pollution.

 

The project cost of a 3.5 MW Enercon E126 EP 3 wind turbine costs £3.13 million, and if the subsidies were diverted to renewables we could have an extra wind farm of 5.16 wind turbines in every constituency every year, generating 18.06 MW per hour per year. 34.82 MW per hour is used by the average person in the UK per year, so our wind turbines would provide clean electricity to 8,766‬ more people in every constituency every year, in eight years every constituency would have clean electricity provided locally. As nuclear and fossil fuel turbine generators use 50% of our fresh water in the process of generating electricity having such a policy will also double fresh water sources, that are being increasingly stretched by global weirding.  Think Green. Think Clean.

Rapid Weight Loss in Men

 

 

My safe sex invention explains how a man’s prostrate gland can become orgasmic when squeezed one hundred times. An orgasm burns approximately 100 calories a day, so 100 squeezes a day will cause 9 pounds (4 kilograms) weight loss a week. As coronavirus is targeting those overweight, particularly men, this could be a real life saver, if you can get over the thought of it.

What to do if you are in an At Risk Group for Coronavirus


 

The coronavirus is targeting those overweight, with diabetes, and high blood pressure. Both being overweight and Type 2 Diabetes can be dealt with in the same way; Women with Type 2 Diabetes can be put into remission using my Orgasmic Nose Diet (the cumulation of my research for sexercise with ‘Mad Lizzy’, a TV star who got the nation exercising in the 1970s. It is the world's first fun diet) Once women have an orgasmic nose they can lose 9 pounds (4 kilograms) in weight a week with 100 strokes of the nose a day. Women can also lose weight using the pissgasm; at urination breath out, do a reverse Kegel (open the vagina with muscular control) and then let go. Men can use the Anti-Calorie diet to lose weight fast. The fastest treatment for high blood pressure is the Tension Sheet, which I invented while still at school and which acts in minutes. The Tension Sheet is also good for those suffering mental health issues in lockdown. In the event that you do get coronavirus then you will be best advised to look at how 40 million lives were saved with my Respiratory Tract Treatment routines for Swine Flu in 2009.

How to Roll Dice to Your Advantage


 

It is possible to increase the total score of a dice rolled by 10%. I invented this method at infant school and it amazed the Head Master when I beat him in dice rolling, which mathematics says is not possible. The method is to roll the dice in a line after selecting the four faces that will roll, which are also the highest. When you roll the faces with a 6 and 5 you will find that the lowest numbers, the 1 and 2 are on either side. In a straight roll the 1 and 2 should theoretically not come up as much and so your score, on average, will be higher. This is a useful skill to know if you like board games.

How to Swallow a Tablet

 

Many people have difficulty swallowing tablets, but I have a simple method for doing this. Just take a mouthful of water, and then pop the pills into your mouth. The pills are heavier than water and so sink to the bottom of the water, once they hit the bottom simply swallow the water and the pills go down first. An added advantage is that you do not get to taste the medication first.

Anyone for Red Champagne?


 

Champagne is still recognised as an expensive luxury for most people, but a cheap substitute can quickly be made at home if you are an owner of a SodaStream device, which normally adds carbon dioxide to water in a process that ends up with fizzy drinks for children. In this case, we substitute the water for a cheap bottle of wine, and carbonate it using the SodaStream. This causes leaks so catch the leaks with a drip tray such as a plate. You will find that the carbon dioxide improves the flavour of the wine, but you will get better results by spending a little bit more on the wine. Home made “champagne” can be made from red wine, which is a first. Two glasses is the recommended intake for your inhibitions!

Labour ‘Cobra’ Advice for Swine Flu in 2009 relevant to Covid 19 Sent to

Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn


 

After a lot of campaigning in 2009 I persuaded the UK government emergency committee ‘Cobra’ to announce how to survive an infection of Swine Flu, I actually got my advice printed in ‘Private Eye’ magazine first! I calculated that it saved 40 million lives. The advice, and the reasons why, can be seen on my respiratory tract treatment subpage, and can be summarised as:


 

Simple Treatments for Colds, Flu, and Pneumonia

 

 

To summarise:

1) Breath deeply all day to prevent aching muscles which could lead to death.

2) Roll on your side to cough up a lung at a time of mucus, to prevent drowning.

3) Go to bed an hour earlier to increase your energy that you will need to fight with tomorrow.

4) Imagine doing exercises to increase muscle mass because your body will be using your muscles as energy.

5) Stay warm.


 

I have sent this advice to every embassy in London.


 

In addition, I have recommended in my emails to Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn, that we use the Kadir-Buxton Method to cure all the mentally ill in thirty seconds in order to free up hospitals, wards, beds, and staff for coronavirus patients. The Kadir-Buxton Method is simple to learn and loved ones and first-aiders can learn it within forty five minutes.


 

Don’t die of ignorance.

Scientists and their work with Antivirals


 

When the US banned biological weapon research on US soil the CIA simply moved their laboratories to Africa, and this led to the escape of HIV into the environment, a ‘Panorama’ program revealed. The Conservative Government of Margaret Thatcher was rebuked at the United Nations for using HIV as a method of assassination. The first scientist to announce that he was going to work on a cure for the virus, which would be a first, asked for ideas from around the world. I wrote to the scientist advising that Ayurvedic medicine had been using colostrum for Flu for thousands of years, so it would be an antiviral, and that he should look at the elements of colostrum that were antiviral; and he soon came up with a cure.

Now Covid 19 has escaped from a lab in China, (Professor Francis Boyle who drafted the first multilateral disarmament treaty banning biological warfare, says it escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, at a level four biosafety laboratory seven miles from the epicentre of the outbreak (see this article from the Daily Express) and this is a good pointer to an international ban on biological and chemical weapons being made and enforced, it was supposed to be stopped at the end of the Cold War, but it appears that all sides have been carrying on secret research too, so there are many virus escapes to come if we do not act. Class Actions against the perpetrators would be a start.

Research into new antivirals have not been as logical as hoped, another potential source for a drug is honey, many plants are also known for their anti viral properties, and we must look for the mechanisms that they use against viruses before global heating renders them extinct.

Three countries have cured Covid 19 with a cocktail of anti viral drugs, HIV, Flu, and Swine Flu. I would like to see all countries copy these successful methods.

On Cutting the Amount of Flooding Due to Global Weirding

While average forest cover across Europe is 37%, in Britain it is 13% , so we should plant plenty of trees, and we should plant them wherever we are likely to get flooding.

After Leeds was flooded they asked for ideas to stop this happening again, and I sent them the advice of Environmentalist George Monbiot, who went later to successfully argue his case. When it rains trees drive water into the soil, and thus slow down flooding, so we have to plant lots of trees upstream to lessen the effect of heavier rains, and less often, in the new age we have caused. His advise to the House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee was:

 

“Our bare hills are an artefact of three principal activities: sheep farming, deer stalking and grouse shooting. Sheep and deer selectively browse out tree seedlings, ensuring that existing forests cannot regenerate and trees cannot repopulate bare land.” Our new anti-flooding forests, filled with native trees planted in equilateral triangles to maximise crops, thus need protection from sheep and deer.

The landowners issued the threat of legal action after ministers started working on producing a law to ban them from carrying out the environmentally damaging practice on their moorland estates. The old heather is burned to expose new shoots – a source of food for grouse, whose numbers are boosted. The estates then charge people who want to shoot grouse. Environmentalists say that this releases CO2 into the atmosphere which harms both the wildlife and causes flooding and degrading. No doubt deer stalkers and sheep farmers will be threatening to sue as well, perhaps the government can employ them all to look after the new forests. We must triple the number of trees we have and these are the people in the right place and at the right time.

A Level Playing Field for the Environment

A question was once put to UK youth, how much money would you have to be paid to push the planet over the tipping point? The answer was: “Knowing politicians, 50 quid (£) and a prostitute.”

Upton Sinclair said: “ It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.” Boris Johnson, for example, had £50,000 put into his campaign for Conservative Party leadership by a climate denier, and has a fracker on his team, the fossil fuel industry gave his party £1 million into his General Election fund. (I would like to see it donated to Extinction Rebellion.) Boris now says that he does not “get” the climate crisis.

Leonardo DiCaprio's “Before the Flood” documentary outs US politicians for taking fossil fuel money, John Cornyn was bunged $2,979,856 for example, while Mitch McConnell got $1,914,220. Enough US politicians have been bought in the US to block all environmental policy. All are from the Republican Party.

Politicians in the UK boast how dirty politics is, while not giving us the figures. When Prime Minister David Cameron, of “Piggate” fame, boasted how many Conservative MPs were multi-millionaires, the Labour Party asked how many of them were even millionaires before they entered the House, we got no response.

In order to prevent the prostitution of our politicians I would like to see their income strictly monitored, both during and after they have left office, with them only getting what the electorate pays them in salary, all else being donated to a designated charity. The person best for a job is not the one that wants the highest salary, but the one that most wants to do the job. We can put in another level of security by insisting that all politicians take the same infallible personality test as the US Democratic Party to ensure that those who serve us are not self-serving.

Impeachment? War!

The US and UK committed genocide in Iraq, I warned Tony Blair that with modern weapons it would be hard not to commit genocide, but he went along with advice from the military industrial complex instead. When genocide occurred the politicians, rather than hand themselves over for trial, instead banned the word genocide from the press. Now there are tensions between the US and Iran with deliberate genocide a real possibility. However, I have a plan which could improve society over time.

I campaign to have all countries cede all of their armed forces in agreed stages, to a democratically elected United Nations, until war becomes impossible; as discussed in the peace treaty between the USSR and USA that ended the Cold War by the US agreeing to cut WMD in return for democracy in Eastern Europe. We can then spend the money saved on the climate crisis.

Tree Planting by Drone Could Help To Reach UN Target of a Trillion Trees

DENDRA, the makers of Sky Tractors (drones) say that they can plant 150 times faster than conventional methods and in hard to reach places, the land is scanned to ensure that the germinated seed pods are not wasted on such things as rocks and water, before planting starts, the Sky Tractors can be then flown several at a time (if the country permits this) for maximum speed. I have been in contact with Susan Graham CEO with a view to getting the Sky Tractors to plant in equilateral triangles in order to increase crop production by 15% (see Crow's Footing page).

My friend Don Shaw from Australia says: “ Woke up 2am to smell of smoke drifting  from fires,  Sounds bit like a California scenario.” and sent a photograph he took of the flames sky high. In the climate crisis land use is going to be critical, and also, tree rings around cities, towns, and villages, will keep the area cooler as trees give off water vapour, I have already got Google to cool their servers with trees, it works out cheaper than conventional electrical cooling. Beijing does not have to be the only city with a ring of trees.

The“Drawdown” book edited by Paul Hawken recommends silvopasture, which is planting trees in fields where animals graze, this provides shade, sequester carbon above and below ground, and cut farmer's costs for feed, fertiliser, and herbicides, it could save 31.19 gigatons of reduced CO2 for a cost of $41.6 billion with a saving of $699.4 billion. Managed grazing can also help. By breaking up fields into smaller areas with fencing, and then moving the animals on regularly the grass is not over cropped and gets time to grow back. “Drawdown” estimates that this would save 16.34 gigatons of CO2, would cost $50.5 billion, and would save $735.3 billion, so another obvious weapon in the hands of environmentalists.

Invention to Reduce Casualties due to Mud Slides Caused by Global Weirding

I wrote to organisers of a meeting in Rio de Janeiro after reading in the “WeDon'tHaveTime” app (every new user plants a tree thanks to Trees.org) with regards to getting technology that can cut deaths due to mud slides, which are increasing due to global weirding. As a young boy I climbed a mountain in the UK with my parents, there were loud creaking noises coming from the ground, no one on the mountain knew what they were. Then just a meter below me the soil came clean off the rock, slid down the mountain, and took out three coaches of Japanese tourists. Similarly, the mysterious creaking noises from a mountain in Wales a few years ago were reported by unknowing journalists, and this time I was prepared. With a few phone calls I was able to get the police to block off the area, local geologists from the nearest University were able to accurately predict how far the mud slide would go, and no lives were lost. We can have a low tech warning system just by getting people aware of this noise and getting them to report it to both the local University and police, educating with simple MP3 files, relatively cheaply. A second, more expensive layer of defence can be put up, with remote sound sensors programmed to listen out for this loud creaking noise, you will just have to record one first so that the sensor knows what to listen out for, hopefully governments would see fit to invest in such technology for their people.

How to walk a straight on a ship at sea


 

As a child I went on a sea ferry and was amazed at how difficult it was to walk in a straight line. I had been reading a martial arts book that said that in the early days they walked on the outer edges of their feet to toughen them up for kicking. In my experiments to walk in a straight line on the ship I thought this would be a good place to start, and got it in one. "Sea Dogs" were really impressed that I was walking in a straight line as they had not seen anyone do it in a lifetime at sea. A health warning must be given, doing too much too soon makes the feet ache, so start small and do more each day. And using ships is better for the environment than using aircraft to travel.

Charity is an Endorphin Buzz

It has been found that people get an endorphin high when doing charitable things, and also while listening to their favourite music. Here I suggest that you do both at the same time. Not everyone has the finances to give to charity, and not everyone has time to do some volunteering, if this sounds like you then I have an alternative that works. There is such a thing as “click to give” on the internet, you click a button and someone else makes a donation on your behalf. The website I suggest that you use has a variety of subjects that will interest anyone, Hunger and Poverty, Health, Education and miscellaneous, Environment, and Animals.

It can be frustrating to see the Amazon on fire, or your email inbox filling with requests for finances, but with TheNonProfits.com we can both make a difference and improve are mental health. One lady I met online said that she managed to both donate $100 a day in this way and feel much better herself.

Another simple way to give is to make your search engine on both phone and computer Ecosia.org, who also have an app, it plants a tree every time you do approximately 45 internet searches, or an average of 1 pound (0.45 KG) of CO2 reduction with every search. We cannot all afford to get arrested at Extinction Rebellion protests but we can both play our part, and get our endorphin boost with an activity that we would be doing anyway.

Dirty, Dangerous, and Expensive; Say No to Nuclear

Since 1954 nuclear power stations have been generating electricity for the grid. 65 years later scientists are no further forward when it comes to nuclear waste.

The Royal Navy has retired 20 nuclear submarines since 1980 and has still not come up with a safe way of disposing of the nuclear waste, and has not dismantled any of them. The Ministry of Defence (MoD) estimates that to do so would cost £7.5 billion over 120 years. In spite of their being no geologically safe location for the billions of years some of the nuclear waste takes to become safe the MoD wants to spend another £51 billion on new nuclear submarines that it then will not be able to dismantle. In the civil nuclear industry the waste disposal at least has to be looked at in the design stage, even though there is no way to do it; the MoD still does not have to. That governments and industries are allowed to build anything nuclear without any safe method of disposal shows us that decision makers are illogical and dangerous, this is a much bigger problem than even plastic and there are no signs of an enforceable international agreement to ban the nuclear industry until a safe disposal mechanism is invented, something that nuclear scientists in the field say is impossible. There must be a moratorium to agree that decision makers in the field have a minimum IQ of 150 so that this dangerous farce can end. This vast sum of money must be diverted to solving the climate crisis that will quickly get worse as we ride the 'hockey stick.'

The Range of an Electric Vehicle Could be Better than a Fossil Fuel One,

Clean Long Range Transport is a Real Possibility

Professor John Cushman, Co-founder, IFBattery


 

A new type of electric vehicle power using “refillable” technology has taken another giant leap in advancing alternative energy with testing that shows it could provide enough energy to run a car for about 3,000 miles. The technology employs a novel type of “flow” battery that is being successfully tested in golf carts.

“The jump that this technology has made in the past two years is a testament to its value in changing the way we power our vehicles,” said John Cushman, Purdue University Distinguished Professor of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences and a Professor of Mathematics. “It’s a game-changer for the next generation of electric cars because it does not require a very costly rebuild of the electric grid throughout the US.  Instead, one could convert gas stations to pump fresh electrolyte and discard depleted electrolyte and convert oil-changing facilities to anode replacing stations. It is easier and safer to use and is more environmentally friendly than existing battery systems.”

The technology uses a patented technology that is safe and affordable for recharging electric and hybrid vehicle batteries by replacing the fluid in the batteries about every 300 miles through a process similar to refuelling a car at a gas station. Every 3,000 miles, the anode material is replaced, taking less time than is needed to do an oil change and costing about the same with an estimated cost of about $65.

“It is the full circle of energy with very little waste,” Cushman said. “IFBattery’s components are safe enough to be stored in a family home, are stable enough to meet major production and distribution requirements and are cost-effective.”

The used battery fluids or electrolytes can be collected and taken to solar farm, wind turbine or hydroelectric plant to be reused again. 

“It is the full circle of energy with very little waste,” Cushman said. This makes for a lighter and more efficient EV, and I look forward to a production car coming out at soon as possible. It also means ships and lorries could become clean, and possibly aircraft too.

Method for Disposing of Single Use Plastic Found


 

The 'Daily Mail' 11 July 2019 reports that single use plastic can now be turned into electricity and hydrogen, both important in a near-zero CO2 economy, it can be used on dirty or mixed plastic, and leaves no residue. The University of Chester, in partnership with PowerHouse Energy, has come up with the process and Waste2Tricity is the exclusive developer in the UK and South East Asia. They intend to stop plastic being dumped in rivers and oceans by making it valuable, paying $50 a tonne to be put in their kilns.

The process includes cutting the plastic into 5cm strips, the air is squeezed out, and heating it in a kiln at 1,000 degrees Centigrade which instantly melts and gasifies it. This syngas (synthetic gas similar to natural gas) has very low CO2 content and goes into a pressure swing absorption (PSA) which extracts hydrogen at two tonnes a day. The remainder of the gas is used to generate electricity in a gas engine. It is hoped that the patented technology will soon power the plant at Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, 7,000 houses on the grid in a day, and 7,000 hydrogen cars in two weeks. As excess energy from solar and wind turbines will have to be stored for peak use and for night time use, hydrogen is an instant way of providing such energy on demand, and the more the better. PowerHouse Energy say they have received a letter of support from the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade & Industry about their DMG technology, which is the thermal conversion of carbonaceous organic materials, which is converting complex molecules into simple, safe, molecules. In the letter the Japanese Government Ministry said it considers the DMG technology has many environmental advantages, and views it as a major competitor within the low-cost production of hydrogen industry.

Professor Joe Howe, Executive Director of Thornton Energy Research Institute at the University of Chester said: “We are extremely excited to be hosting the prototype demonstrator here at the University of Chester. The technology converts all plastic waste into high quality, low carbon hydrogen syngas which can then be used to power gas engines. A by-product of this process is electricity, meaning waste plastic can not only fuel cars but can also keep the lights on at home. Surely the world must wake up to this technology. It will make waste plastic valuable with it being able to power the world's towns and cities, and most importantly, it can help clean up our oceans of waste plastic now.”

Staying Cool in Global Weirding

One of the problems of global weirding is that we are frequently getting temperature records, while I would suggest to everyone getting a personal body cooler if they can afford it, there are many in the world who can not; for them I have a cheap solution, namely using the wind chill factor. This is the lowering of the body temperature due to the passing flow of lower temperature air. To use the wind chill factor to keep cool on a hot, and potentially dangerous day, just cover your naked flesh with cold water and stand in front of a fan until chilly. If you have done it too long you will feel a cold sting, so adjust the time in front of the fan you are using, which will vary from model to model.

With the death rates mounting due to record temperatures over record days this invention can save lives.

Reducing the Big Pharma Carbon Footprint by 80%+

 

Environmental engineers Lotfi Belkhir and Ahmed Elmeligi of McMaster University in Ontario, Canada, set out to analyse the carbon emissions put out by big pharma. They found that pharmaceutical companies put out 13 per cent more carbon emissions making medicines than car manufacturers - despite having a market that is 28% smaller.

Drug manufacturers emit greenhouse gases directly into the atmosphere from their factories as a result of their production processes, and indirectly through power use.

Pharmaceutical companies put out 13 per cent more carbon emissions than car manufacturers despite having a market that is 28 per cent smaller.

In 2007, for example, researchers found that the US Healthcare sector accounted for eight per cent of the nation's total greenhouse emissions.

Drug manufacturers directly emit greenhouse gases into the atmosphere from their factories as a result of their production processes.

In addition, these companies produce emissions indirectly through the carbon dioxide emitted in the production of the electrical power which they use in their manufacturing systems.

Drug companies can also cause other forms of pollution, such as the accidental leak of medicines into the environment.

This all sounds bad in the climate crisis, but I have a simple solution. I have been attempting to get the NHS to use the thirty second cure for mental illness, namely the Kadir-Buxton Method, since the 1980s. As General Practitioners complain of being overworked, and 80% of their work is about mental health, we could cut the carbon footprint of medicine by 80% as well just by using my simple to learn invention. Until the medical profession are forced to use this invention we should be learning my Method so that every First Aider can quickly both cure the mental illness and offset their patient's carbon footprint.

The 'Daily Mail' states that 52 megatonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent in 2015 is due to Big Pharma, compared to the 46.4 megatonnes put out by the car manufacturing industry in the same year. I say we can reduce this by 80% to 10.4 megatonnes. This would also cut the number of animals tortured in medical experiments by a similar amount. These polluting companies should be made to offset the rest, the opposite side of the the carbon tax coin; which will take years for politicians to implement. A survey of surveys found that an untreated mental patient takes an average of five years to become sane again while those taking modern medicine take an average of six years these medicines should be regarded as a poison anyway. (you will be hard pushed to find this survey, it is well hidden). I have found the cheapest way for Big Pharma to offset their final 20% is by paying for Forest Gardens in the Third World. See: https://trees.org/

There are 7.7 billion people on the planet at the moment, and The WHO say that one in four are mentally ill, that is, 1.925 billion, with a combined CO2 emission of 42 megatonnes, this is an average mental health carbon footprint of 0.218 tonnes for each sufferer. And it will take just thirty seconds to end.

The Stone Age did not end when we ran out of Stones.


 

On 3 January 2018 I wrote to President Jean-Claude Juncker of The European Union pointing out that we could slash CO2 emissions with the passive control of buildings using something like Starlite, and reiterating my near-zero CO2 plan in brief. Nearly a year later we have the headline: “European Union legislators reached agreement in the early hours of Wednesday (19 December 2018) over a proposed reform of electricity market rules that includes a 2025 cut-off date for coal subsidies, and a special clause for Poland.” The headline could have been: “What climate crisis?”

 

The UK Conservative Government spends £10.5bn of our money on subsiding fossil fuels, meanwhile cuts to subsidies for homeowners to install solar panels and a “hostile planning approach” that has in effect banned new wind turbines are behind the “wholesale decline”, Community Energy England (CEE) said in its 2018 State of the Sector report.

 

In recent weeks I have had to write to the local council at Dewley Hill, UK, who have just agreed to start a coal mine when we have only 12 years to leave it in the ground saying: “We have a government declaration of climate crisis, and there is no room for coal in the answer.”

 

How much would you have to pay to push the Earth over the target of 1.5 degrees C? Knowing politicians £50 and a prostitute.  

 

'The Guardian' reports: Environmental activist Greta Thunberg said in April the UK’s “active, current support of new exploitation of fossil fuels” was “absurd”. The audit committee report found that UK Export Finance (UKEF), which provides lines of credit and insurance to help companies win business overseas, spent £2.6bn in recent years to support the UK’s global energy exports, of which £2.5bn was handed to fossil fuel projects. Only 4% of its funding, or £104m, was used to support renewable energy projects.

Earlier this year, former UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon called on the UK to stop funding fossil fuel projects in the developing world.

 

 

I Just Don't Give a Fuck

 

Preamble

 

Please excuse my use of this language

but it is the language these sort of people use

 

We're messing up the planet

With all our human muck

It makes me angry when you say

I just don't give a fuck

 

Just toss that plastic bottle

The one that you just sucked

It makes me angry when you say

So what? Just go get fucked

 

Come on you lazy litterer

I'm trying to do my bit

It makes me angry when you say

I just don't give a shit

 

You think I'm making all this up?

You think I'm just a toff?

It makes me angry when you say

Get lost. Just bugger off

 

Climate change you scoff at

Scientists say it's true

It makes me angry when you say

They haven't got a clue

 

It seems to me you don't care

'Bout our environment

It makes me angry when you say

Get lost, I am content

'Climate Change: The Facts' presented by Sir David Attenborough

 

In the last 20 years, over 3.5 million hectares of Indonesian and Malaysian forest have been destroyed to make way for palm oil. Almost 80% of orangutan habitat has disappeared in the last 20 years. We are losing over 6,000 orangutans a year.

 

Not only is palm oil bad for the environment, and a major cause of climate change, but it is also the leading cause of orangutan extinction. Every year it is estimated that between 1,000 to 5,000 orangutans are killed in palm oil concessions.

 

In Sumatra at least 10.8 million hectares have been opened up for palm oil plantations. The situation in Borneo is similar. Large scale conversion of tropical rain forests has had an absolutely devastating impact on biodiversity in both Borneo and Sumatra. In addition, deforestation may cause soil erosion and, because most forests have been cleared through the use of fire, massive air pollution from smoke. All this degrades the soil, and I have campaigned before to have slash and burn replaced by biocharing, the effects of which are felt hundreds of miles away, Malaysia frequently effects the quality of air in Singapore, and Poland probably killed a few asthmatics in the UK with their incompetence. Much of the land on which palm oil plantations have been established consists of peat swamp forest. The draining, burning, and conversion of peat swamp forests to palm oil has been especially damaging to the world’s climate as it has led to Indonesia being the third largest contributor of carbon to the world’s atmosphere after China and the United States.

Palm oil companies prefer to clear primary forests, rather than degraded areas or grasslands, for economic reasons. They don’t need to utilize or add as much chemical fertilizer (which is expensive) to forest land cleared by fire and fertilized from ash produced by the fire. In addition, the cost of clearing peat swamp forests is subsidized by the sale of commercially valuable timber taken from concession areas as part of the conversion process. After palm oil plantations are established, displaced starving orangutans are frequently killed in the most brutal ways as agricultural pests when they try to obtain food in the plantation areas. We saw in 'Climate Change: The Facts' one of the orangutans trying to fight off the diggers that were knocking down it's home.

A third of the land surface is now used for agriculture, this rises to a half when all man made building is added. Cement based on magnesium silicates can be used, which not only requires much less heating than conventional cement but also absorbs large amounts of CO2 as it hardens, making it carbon negative.

 

We are currently on a trajectory of 3-6 degrees centigrade of global warming if we do nothing, leading to a sea rise of between 80cm and 1 meter. A tipping point that could be reached is where methane is uncontrollably released into the atmosphere from the permafrost, and the only way to prevent this is to have a near-zero CO2 economy that prevents the planet getting any hotter. A low tech method of locking up CO2 is to reforest on degraded or abandoned lands. 15 billion trees are cut down each year. More than 2 billion hectares offer opportunities for restoration, an area larger than South America, and The United Nations has made it a target to plant a trillion trees, and we have planted seventeen billion trees so far.

Diarrhoea kills 2,195 children every day—

more than AIDS, malaria, and measles combined.

 

Diarrhoeal diseases account for 1 in 9 child deaths worldwide, making diarrhoea the second leading cause of death among children under the age of 5. For children with HIV, diarrhoea is even more deadly; the death rate for these children is 11 times higher than the rate for children without HIV 2. Despite these sobering statistics, strides made over the last 20 years have shown that, in addition to rotavirus vaccination and breastfeeding, diarrhoea prevention focused on safe water and improved hygiene and sanitation is not only possible, but cost effective: every $1 invested yields an average return of $25.50. I have a webpage on digging water wells. I also have a webpage on how to increase breast milk production exponentially.

ORS (oral rehydration salts) are used in the developing water in treating diarrhoea, which is a mix of sugar, salt, and clean water, at the correct quantities. For this problem, I have found that a good treatment for diarrhoea is to ingest starch, the free source is to drink the cooled water that your vegetables were boiled in. Smash instant potato also fights diarrhoea, presumably due to the process they use to make it increases the starch levels of the food.

A Trillion Trees

It has recently been found that there is enough land to plant another 1.2 trillion trees in parks, woods, and abandoned lands across the planet. Dr. Thomas Crowther counted over 3 trillion trees already in existence, a seven fold estimate increase over the last count by NASA. This planting would offset the last ten years of carbon emissions, so is a job that we have to do. The United Nations campaign, 'A Billion Trees' is now 'A Trillion Trees.' We have planted 17 billion so far. One charity that does this is 'Trees for the Future' which uses it's funds to help poor farmers create a ring of food trees and fire wood trees around their field, which then produces an abundance and variety of food, so that there is a variety to eat and sell all year round, rather than the one cash crop the World Bank would have them grow, and which I am so against (one drought or pestilence and the whole crop is gone.) 'Trees for the Future' provides the seeds and training to do this, and a small donation can soon offset your carbon emissions and more. An average family in the UK produces 4 tons of CO2 emissions a year, and one donation of £30 to 'Trees for the Future' offsets this, so we should all be doing this, and perhaps we should be made to offset. I have contacted both the UN and 'Trees for the Future' about planting in equilateral triangles (and biocharing) to increase crop yields by 15%. Suddenly 1.2 trillion trees can become 1.38 trillion.

Period Poverty

Many women suffer from period poverty, they have difficulty finding money for sanitary wear that men do not need to, and there have been attempts to end taxing such products around the world. However, the co- inventor of the contraceptive pill, Gregory Goodwin Pincus, was Catholic and, in an attempt to get a Pope to back his invention, came up with the idea of giving women a week off their pills in order to induce a period; this is not necessary. The Pope was not impressed. Women in period poverty are thus able to take the contraceptive pill all month long at no extra cost. In the UK children and unemployed get free prescriptions, while everyone else can get a pre-payment certificate to spread the cost of all their prescriptions to a low amount for the whole year. Those unable to use the contraceptive pill to end periods can get a cheap one off payment menstrual cup that can be used time after time.  (See: Alleviating Menstrual Cramps).

Slashing CO2 Emissions From Our Food Carbon Footprint

The Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) says that reducing agriculture’s carbon footprint is central to limiting climate change. And to help to ensure food security, farmers across the globe will probably have to switch to cultivating more climate-hardy crops and farming practices. But there is more that we can do.

Using estimates from 2005, 2007 and 2008, the researchers found that agricultural production provides the lion’s share of greenhouse-gas emissions from the food system, releasing up to 12,000 megatonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent a year — up to 86% of all food-related anthropogenic greenhouse-gas emissions. Next is fertilizer manufacture, which releases up to 575 megatonnes, followed by refrigeration, which emits 490 megatonnes. The researchers found that the whole food system released 9,800–16,900 megatonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent into the atmosphere in 2008, including indirect emissions from deforestation and land-use changes. Once we are biocharing wherever possible, and using biochar instead of fertiliser, we can begin to make cuts. We can cut refrigeration costs to near-zero by lining our freezers and chillers on transport and at home with Starlite, and Firepaste. Increases in deforestation can be cut when we eradicate slash and burn and replace it with biocharing the new agricultural land so that we can farm the land for generations instead of for the highly wasteful one season. Population in the Third World can be stabilised by the “Buxton Gap,” a phenomenon where child birth rates drop when there is access to plentiful water supplies, brought about by the digging of water wells. We still have the problem of increasing wealth leading to increasing demand for more exotic meats, Chinese demand for pork is increasing, for example. Education about vegetarianism and eating meat with a smaller carbon foot print would be one method. Beef has a three times higher carbon footprint than pork, and six times that of chicken because it takes longer to get to the table, and the greater CO2 emissions from ruminants.

The statistics that I used in my self-funding near-zero CO2 plan did not mention the percentage of UK CO2 emissions caused by food production, but they can be cut down. (I am at present getting updated figures under the Freedom of Information Act).Long range food transport CO2 emissions can be cut by 50% by mixing transport fuel and water with an ultrasonic dibber, and I am attempting to get Universities in the UK to do so. Sewage from both livestock and humans can be cut by 50% by biocharing it, for use as soil improver. (As can the deceased, and I have campaigned on the rights to this after death). Food waste from both food production, and consumption can also be biochared. We can also eat food that is produced nearer to home, or at home to cut down on transport costs, and home grown food is fresher, so generally tastes better.

We can biochar all organic material, which can be sorted out by automated rubbish dump sorters, with biocharing equipment being on site. The metal and plastic can then be recycled.

“Move for Hunger” says that a third of food produced is wasted. While food loss happens mainly at the production stage due to insufficient skills, natural calamities, lack of proper infrastructure and poor practices, food waste occurs when edible food is intentionally discarded by consumers after they fail to plan their meals properly and store food till it spoils or goes past the expiry date. At times, food waste can also happen due to oversupply in markets. Retailers also tend to reject a lot of food because it doesn’t conform to their quality and aesthetic standards. A 2013 FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations) report, which was the first study to analyse the impacts of global food wastage on the environment, says that nearly one-third of all food produced in the world for human consumption does not find its way to our tables.
