Storing Sunshine – Converting Solar Energy to Hydrogen

by on Apr.26, 2011, under The General Pursuit

With more than enough energy generated during the summer months to run the house, the excess electricity is stored by breaking water into hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen is kept in tanks so that it can be used when there is less sunlight in the winter. At that time, the hydrogen is converted back into water and heat to warm the house.

See chapter 5 of the PBS Video Green Builders, (the Solar Hydrogen house is at the 5 minute mark):

Watch the full episode. See more Green Builders.

The Irony of Terrorism

by on Apr.19, 2011, under The General Pursuit

The origin of the word terrorism is the French Revolution. The Oxford English Dictionary defines it as follows:

Terrorism: A system of terror. 1. Government by intimidation as directed and carried out by the party in power in France during the revolution of 1789-94; the system of `Terror’

So terrorism was originally a tool of government used to intimidate the people it ruled over. Hmm. That would make government the actual terrorists. So who were the real 9/11 terrorists?

Peter Schiff – The Federal Reserve is Counterfeiting

by on Apr.09, 2011, under The General Pursuit

Bernard Von Nothaus was recently convicted of counterfeiting. The thing is – he was making gold and silver coins and medallions that do not resemble Federal Reserve Coins – and if they did – they would be worth MORE because they aren’t mixed with copper and nickel – they are pure silver and gold. Something is bad wrong with this country when a jury convicts a man of a crime like this.

Where do these Federal juries come from? Is it the same pool of people such that judges and prosecutors know who to choose to get their desired convictions? Look here and here for information on the conviction rates of federal juries.

Incidentally – some of the millions in assets that the federal government don’t even belong to Von Nothaus – he was storing that money for his customers as part of a service he provided. So – the government is stealing gold and silver from Americans, while they create more and more money. And we just let them steal from us?
