Hydrogen - Another Con?

Posted on December 1, 2008 at 2:00pm 1 Comment

The following paragraph is lifted from a serious "alternative energy" website promoting development of hydrogen power for vehicles as a replacement for "fossil fuels" - and promoting it's suitability for massive investment.

"Hydrogen is one of two natural elements that combine to make water. Hydrogen is not an energy source, but an energy carrier because it takes a great deal of energy to extract it from water.

It is useful as a compact energy source in fuel cells and batteries. Many… Continue

The Great Green Con

Posted on December 1, 2008 at 2:00pm 2 Comments

The futility of using croplands for Biofuel production was clearly predicted by the team that established this Foundation right from the start - and time has shown this to be so. The early months of this year 2008 have seen a spate of reports published that confirm this - along with an even more terrifyingly negative effect on the environment than the most pessimistic of our team anticipated.

Growing crops to make biofuels results in vast amounts of carbon dioxide being released into the… Continue

Hello Andrea, would you consider working in Nigeria? Industrialization is our only alternative for economic up-turn and empowerment being the realistic sustainble strategy for poverty alleviation, employmenmt creation, peace and food security and ultimately transition to green economy.

Hi Andrea,
I'm very interested in the "Industries for Africa Foundation." Transfer of knowledge is our goal, and it would be great to see what synergy we can create.

Have you looked at open licenses to facilitate knowledge sharing and collaboration?

I gather from your site's overview that your focus is on sharing knowledge in your particular areas of expertise, in a hands-on kind of way. That is very complementary, as our focus is on providing the infrastructure and connections, so that people can share, create and develop knowledge resources which can be shared in various ways -which we envisage happening not only by by internet as now, but through OLPC's laptops, CDs, phone, and printed material.

It would be great if you could share your knowledge on Appropedia. Let us know how we can help!

Hi Andrea,
Thanks for the invite. Congrats on your initiative, it looks like you are working on a really interesting and worthwhile project. I wrote my MBA dissertation on FDI in several African countries that covered competitiveness and investment climate so what you are trying to achieve is somewhat familiar to me.

Hello Ms,
You're already stepped into a wonderful and beautifully packed year!
Nigeria is very pregnant and willing to give birth through your industrial initiatives. So always bear this sick pregnant mother in mind, Okay!

Hallo Andrea,

May be you can start a project which will help us in starting small rural enetreprises in tribal areas of India, where large mining and larger Industrialisation is spoiling the land, people and culture. Large scale displacement and exploitation is to be stopped and smllaer, sustainable enterprises are to be set up.
If you wish to see our small efforts you can go to: http://www.developmentcrossing.com/profile/RaviPratapShahi
