Salicoarnia is a salt water loving plant that is an incredible bio fuel and an amazing source of food. 1/2 cup of Salicornia is 100 calories and 10 grams of protein, when used as a bio fuel it produces much higher yeilds than corn. With rising sea levels, eroding beaches and threatened food supply, this seemed like the perfect tool to address some of these p... more »

With rising sea levels, eroding beaches and threatened food supply, this seemed like the perfect tool to address some of these problems. The goal is to build rivers from the ocean in land and grow Salicornia in the fields surrounding the salt water rivers. Sadly the technology not been developed for full scale industrial production of this plant.This is my attempt to find other passionate individuals around the world who want help to grow ideas on how to grow this plant on a major scale. All feed back is welcome from infrastructure and beyond. use Facebook to create a platform for research.

The idea is to harness the potential of solar energy to a bigger scale. In big cities we don’t have much surface exposed to sun due to other blocking buildings, We can simply deploy something like "exterior wallpapers" which are actually P.V cells and they can be deployed in Exterior building walls, terraces wherever sun can see your building an... more »

I am too lazy and technically incompetent to implement this but still Ideas do come!

Place a brick in each flush toilet cistern. This will displace around 15% of the energy/water use in each regular flush without compromising flush quality.

Food security is also being threatened by climate change which will have many complex effects – bringing disadvantages in higher on vulnerable Agriculture Following are the Adaptation Mechanism Suggested for Agriculture  Crop Improvement  Risk financing  Drought Proofing  Disaster Management  New varieties: Use drought/heat resistant  Improved Farm management practices  Change in land use  Watershed management In-Situ moisture conservation, rain water harvesting and recycling, efficient use of irrigation water and use of poor quality water are key strategies of adaptation to climate change.  Integrated watershed management approach is most appropriate technology to minimize the loss of crop production during drought and flood years.  Agri-insurance Following are the Mitigation Mechanism Suggested for Agriculture  Tree based Interventions a. Wood plantations in private holdings b. Horticultural in private lands c. Commercial Timber d. Afforestation e. Migration to Production Forest/ Agro forest systems f. Road side and Avenue Plantations g. Silvipasture interventions in common lands Advantages of Agroforest System Reforestation or Production Forestry or Agroforestry is the replanting of trees on marginal lands and pasture lands to transfer CO2 from the atmosphere to new biomass. For this process to be successful, it is essential to ensure that the carbon does not return to the atmosphere from burning or rotting when the trees die. • More efficient Technology • Respectable to Environment • Reduce vulnerable to Poverty and Climate Change • Prevent emissions • Increases Carbon Sinks • Improves Soil Productivity • Increases Bio-diversity and Eco-System • Increases Rural employment for Landless • Reduce drudgery of the Women • Many Forest bi-products • Opportunity to set-up Agro based Industry  Agriculture based Interventions a. Utilizing crop residues Cotton/Sunflower etc b. Avoid burning of crop residues c. Minimum tillage Maize after Paddy fallows d. Reduction in Tillage Operations e. Reduction of over Irrigations f. Avoid drainage in Peat soils g. Usage of Vermiculture compost application instead of inorganic/ commercial fertilizers  Energy base Interventions  Electricity Consumption reduction Promotion of Solar appliances at the village level solar lighting, cooking , street lighting etc., Capacitors for Water lifting devices Electricity/Heat Generation Biogas and Power generation( Calf rearing units, Dung, Biogas) Biomass briquettes/Pellets  Farm House hold Interventions a. Replacement of Edition bulb with florescent lights b. Fuel Wood with Biogas c. Smokeless Stoves

Everybody knows that bamboo grows quickly,So why not plant them in bulks,dry them for few months and use them for firewood.Also, in far Eastern countries bamboo is used for and houses scaffolding. It can save many forests and rescue endangered species.
