ECOTERRORISM

October 21, 2012

A new  type of terror has taken the form of arson, bombings and sabotage  in the name of saving the environment and its creatures. These destructive acts have been called ecoterrorism.

At least a hundred major acts of this type have occurred in many countries around the world with damages. Such crimes speed up the deforestation on the use of animals for fun and food.

Surrounding some village forests have been burned down, transformed into a pasture for huge herds of cattle. These people have been burned down the forest for their own interests. But they have derived  many people of oxygen which is the motion or the engine of the life!

These acts are considered terrorist acts because they involve violence intended to change the behavior of individuals and institutions or to alter public policies. Limited recently, crimes in the name of environmental protection had a limited local impact and drew little attention. But targets have grown larger in recent years.

History of Solar Energy

October 21, 2012

Dear Meyer,

Billions of people have lived and died on this earth. Most have left no footprint on the sands of times A few however influenced the caused of history. Your willing and self-sacrificing spirit to teach people how to cook using the sun’s energy, is much appreciated by many people in the world.

Michael Faraday, born in 1791, this English physicist was the inventor of the electric motors and the dynamo. His breakthroughs helped to make electricity more available for human use. From the beginning of time daily cooking  requires fire; but in 1767 French/ Swiss naturalist Horace Benedict de Saussure (1740-1799); Solar cooked fruit in a glass-Covered box  made of three panes, two pane boxes and wool  insulation. His breakthrough helped to make solar cooker available for human use.

17 years after the first earth day observed as million protested pollution ( in 1970).  Barbara kenn and others founded the solar cookers international to spread solar cooking benefit to people…and environments worldwide.

Utrecht Oehler, developed a world-famous solar box cooker; and founded in 1980 a solar energy organization named ULOG- of solar energy promoters to make cooking easy and enjoyable from the big cities to the remote villages. NN, Utrecht Oehler died In 2006, but continuing that work will be an important part of honoring his legacy.

In 1998 , You and others, you founded Solar House Hold Energy (SHE). To address six of eight millennium development goals. SHE, also help the household introduce their consumption of electricity without question the discoveries innovations and organizations of a few men have enabled billions of people to have certain advantages on to enjoy better health and life.

As I am now among the SHE members, I am quite happy as I am hired in this organization. This is something I have been thinking for a long time and now it’s  happening! I guess it happened because of a lot of prayers and because I went into a field, and I was passionate about ( Solar Energy); and finally because it was my destiny. Working in SHE is a dream, it will not be good to wake up!

My life now  has the direction and purpose that I had earned since I was a youth. And most important of all, I now feel that one day I will also contribute to help the humanity….

I can say to you without a hint of doubt that serving in nonprofit organization (like SHE); is without question, the worthy human endeavor. Because working to help the humanity brings happiness. And happiness Comes, not to those who seek it for themselves, but to those who seek it for others. Assisting people in need; this eclipses any rank or position anyone can aspire to reach!

As you were a teenage, your vision and courage to join the solar cooking movement; was a clear testimony of your great desire to see people freed from diseases cause by the smoke, produced by firewood, and freed from the burden of firewood.  Your sacrifice and wish to teach people how to cook using the energy from the sun is worth emulating. I must copy your selflessness and immense contribution to the solar cooker movement. Dear Meyer, your years of work were a golden age of progress in which  you contributed a lot… That was truly worthwhile. Your selfless contribution to the solar cooker movement for the benefit of people will remain as an inspiration to the future generation. As you helped refugee, you deserve the Nansen medal! May God bless you.
Sincerely yours,
Lunda Vincente

Thank You To Volunteers

October 21, 2012

Thank you for a life time of outstanding work on behalf of the needy. I express my wholehearted support for your good work,  which is good for us and good for our planet. Many volunteers deserve the Nansen medal for worked wirelessly for the welfare and outstanding contributions on behalf of refugees…

Dear madam, once again you deserve a gold star medal for your courage and humility to work in refugee camps as a kakuma refugee camp where the conditions of hygiene was precarious.

I’m teaching people, how to cook using the energy from the sun. I can say that volunteers have embarked on what may be the most widespread campaign against the deforestation. Dear Meyer, you should be very happy with the part you have played- an excellent part in the building up the condition of cooking of refugees in kakuma refugee camp and for the local people in Egypt, Mexico, and Cote D’ivoire ect… It is my belief that your work will be  written into the history.

Inside a Refugee Camp

October 21, 2012

Refugees need hot pots instead of firewood to cook their food. Six times a week, they go into the bush or farms to collect the biomass. They leave the camp early and return by midday to avoid ferocious animals who would devour them.

They walk a total of nine or ten kilometers each time to collect firewood, and need about eight hours to find enough firewood on biomass, for their family’s needs. The load that each one carries back weighs between eleven to thirteen kilograms.

The hot-pot can protect people from being killed by snakes, ferocious animals on from being bit by bees. Yes indeed, the hot-pot is, and will be always ready to deal with the situation. Cooking with biomass on firewood is not good because they cause more problems, like diseases and other problems and that’s not good either…

CLIMATE CHANGE

September 3, 2012

A greenhouse gas is a component of the atmosphere that absorbs radiation emaniating from the earth’s surface. Many of the gases emitted into the atmosphere by modern industrial processes are greenhouse gases. They include carbon dioxide, chlorofluorocarbons, methane, and nitrous oxide.

More than 25 billion tons of carbon dioxide alone is now released into our atmosphere every year. Reports indicate that sinde the start of the industrial age, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels have risen by 40%. Tens of thousands of people have died from air pollution.

The world must come together to confront climate change. If we do nothing we will face more drought … All too often political and economic benefits outweigh long-term environmental factors..

Refugee Life

September 3, 2012

Around the world, we see the sincere efforts of many others who are trying to bring relief to refugees who suffer as you (Louise) did for me. To my side, I admire the strength of character that I observe in some fellow refugees who can still smile and laugh in spite of unimaginable suffering.

Food distribution At the end of each month, we receive 10 kg. of meal flour, 5 kg. of soya, 5 grams of salt, 2 kg. of beans, a piece of soap, 750 ml of cooking oil.  We are living in bad conditions which people in developed lands would not even let their pets live in!  We live day by day, as part of a chaotic environment where one could die tomorrow.  I feel worn down by the daily struggle of making ends meet.

WAR:   During the war and pillage, a prevalent motto among Congolese youth was: “you can steal our possessions, but you can never steal what is in our brains.

Orangutans

August 25, 2012

orangutans called ‘Man of the Forest’  Orangutans belong to the order of great apes, as do gorillas and chimpanzees. These gentle hermitlike creatures live in the forests. Their name is made up of two Indonesian words: organ and hutan meaning ‘man of the forest’ Orangatans are experts at camouflage, melting like shadows into the forest canopy. On the ground they move slowly, humans can easily outpace them. These animals spend almost their entire life in the treetops, and they are the only great apes to do so. Most evening, around sunset, they select a strong forked bough, gather small branches and twigs and build a cozy new bed. Trees also provide orangutans with their favorite food-fruit. They have an excellent memory and know exactly when and where to find ripe fruit. Also on their menu are leaves, bark and shoots. Some environmentalists say that orangutans are slipping into extinction – among the main threat is deforestation

Our Planet

August 25, 2012

Our Planet has a Fever!  The Earth has a fever. The symptoms are showing – the deforestation, the pollution of smoke caused by burning firewood. The reason why we ask the SHE organization to intervene with the HotPot solar ovens. . .because if we don’t, ‘it’ can cause the end of the world which was not the plan of God. Grace to trees, oxygen exists which makes life possible for men as well as animals to sustain their lives by breating. Oxygen is vital to human beings as food and water are to the human body. So the dangers posed by deforestation are nearly as dire as those posed by nuclean weapons. Surely, we can see with our own eyes that out planet has a fever – but the SHE organization is a cure in many ways . . . just cook or pasteurize water in a HotPot solar oven.  Just try it – it works!
