The “Relief” of phasing out Fossil Fuel! …Now!

“Fix it action” is possible, Now!
The posts* below, offer real actions we can take, Today.

YOU KNOW WHAT “MISTAKES” I REFER TO: “FOSSIL FUEL”
Maybe we should really start calling them “mistakes” for they surely are!

Finally in the mood to phase out fossil fuel? – Governance

Yes, Governance! One of the ESGs.
WOW! So much is already happening, TODAY, to phase them out.*
– Solutions through the law

“The rules of our world are laws, and they can be changed. Laws can restrict or they can enable. What matters is what they serve. Many of the laws in our world serve property – they are based on ownership. But imagine a law that has a higher moral authority… a law that puts people and planet first. Imagine a law that starts from first “do no harm”, that stops this dangerous game and takes us to a place of safety….” Polly Higgins, 2015

“We need to change the rules.”
Greta Thunberg, 2019

Vetiver System Proven I say, “Heal the Land with Vetiver”

Vetiver System < (C. zizanioides)

Do you live near one of these scars?

Vancouver Island copper mine that has been recovered
Vancouver Island Copper Mine

Heal the Scars,
Put back BioDiversity.
Capture and pull down CO2.
Rid the land and water of contaminants.
Slow down water velocity.
Attract native species to return and Heal.
Not invasive
Strong Organic Stablization of land
Much Cheaper than ridged contruction!

Climate Retrofits on Land or at Sea >> Big Demand

Retrofit =  
to modify, change, remodel to a new purpose or need,
to modify equipment, to replace existing parts, etc., with updated parts or systems.

A fix to reduce Fossil Fuel worldwide!
Electric-powered heat pumps that both heat and cool to replace oil&gas. Use renewable electricity to power the electric-powered heat pumps.

Huge Worldwide Demand !

Where has this extra methane heat come from?
no doubt, still leaking……..
The USA is not the only country that continues to ignore it

Municipal Solid Waste = MSW to BioFuel? NOW! #3

ALERT – I made a mistake. I did not research enough of this “Natural Gas” issue.
Natural Gas = Methane.
You can find out what needs to be done, HERE, to be sure we can Happily go ahead with waste to fuel.

and
a demand= Fuel!

CNG, LNG, RNG fueling stations – #2 Waste to Energy

The Landfill, Garbage dump and other places that are making Methane (= Natural Gas) as we go about our daily lives!

ALERT – I made a mistake. I did not research enough of this “Natural Gas” issue.
Natural Gas = Methane. You can find out what needs to be done, HERE, to be sure we can Happily go ahead with waste to fuel.

the forms that Natural Gas, Methane, Biogas, Biofuel take:
CNG – Compressed natural gas (methane stored at high pressure),
LNG – Liquefied natural gas (methane + mix cooled down to liquid),
RNG – Renewable Natural Gas (biomethane)
Each slightly different but all interchangeable and all methane=natural gas to use as energy.
