Growing up in the 80s and 90s in Canada, I experienced first hand how environmental consciousness was starting to catch on. We saw our first blue boxes (curb side recycling bins) in the late 80s. The schools were also really focused on education about the ozone layer, acid rain, and global warming. I even did a project on hydrogen as a fuel for cars. Environmental consciousness was really engrained into our minds.
Let’s see where we are to invest and what sources of energy to develop – geothermal energy, solar power, hydropower, tidal power and biomass. Plus, there are also areas of hydrogen and ocean energy.
We refer to the power grid when we say “the grid”. It is the linked system that is supposed to deliver electricity to the people. Every general house has a power supply, access to natural gas and water; and not to forget, telephone. Living off the grid would mean not using these facilities and creating their own energy. For example; you are living off the grid when you are not having a water supply line at your home and are relying on the sewage and city water. Digging wells and using the cistern system for water supply is another way in which you can live off the grid.
Your abs program is also going to need you to build in an abs diet as well. For me personally, a great way to build that into your regular diet is to slowly replace fast working carbs with the slower complex carbohydrates. When you build those into your diets, especially if you consume them after your workout you will find, even after an exhaustive workout, that you have more power supplier.
The problem is that we humans are burning, churning and polluting our way through a finite fuel source. What if, on the other hand, we got handed to us a viable energy source that doesn’t stink up the place?
The power nap or afternoon nap can refresh and revitalize without adding any stress on the digestive system. Mental rejuvenation from a short nap is an energy boost that takes only a few minutes. Scientific research suggests that 20 minutes is a perfect amount of time. This ensures that you don’t reach deep sleep levels that can result in grogginess and slow reaction times after waking. The research also says it is more effective than caffeine to deliver higher production levels and improved safety on the job. Hyundai automotive of South Korea gives its workers time for a nap as part of their daily work schedule.
Mention a solar power farm and many people picture a field of solar panels. This is incorrect in most cases. Instead, one gets a field of mirrors. The mirrors are controlled by a computer system. They are tilted at different angles to do just one thing. They redirect light to the top section of a tower placed in the middle of the mirrors. This section is filled with a large amount of a salt mixture.
While some shopping behaviors, such as buying only fair trade merchandise, can be difficult and expensive, it’s nice to know that some of the greenest things you can do for your wardrobe are actually easy and free.
