Update: A couple of people were asking for a BC address.

We just got one, it's in the vid description:

For example, air-water extraction isn't mentioned by media in the middle east or Australia because these places are very dry climates, meaning these devices either don't work or are inefficient. 

They go from 100 per cent efficiency to 50 per cent. The companies are honest about that. There's a lot of interest in this techology in Dubai, check it out if you like.

I am familiar with the technology, and it doesn't come close to 100% efficient in *any* context.  Perhaps if one is judging efficiency on the amount of water in the air that the system can extract, but even that isn't ever 100%.  Dubai has a lot of interests in many things that will turn up turkey.  That's not an argument in favor.  Air-water extraction isn't new technology; and although these companies have done wonders for improving the efficiency, the fact of the matter is that these technologies still require large energy inputs, and the production of these devices are resource intensive as well.

Also, hemp is a wonderful product, but the claim that it's widespread use could solve pollution problems is false.  It's not magic.

You got a source for that?


First off, I'm not the one who needs references, but yes I could come up with such a source if I was inclined to do so.  Regardless, it's an intuitive result that hemp cannot be all things in the chemical industries.  It can replace 95%+ of the hydrocarbon inputs into manufacturing (many consumer forms of plastic, most petrol based products, etc) as well as many other things.  However, there is nothing that says that hemp can do all of these things cost effectively, nor can hemp replace many of the (other than hydrocarbon based) toxic chemicals in use in industry today.  There are very sound reasons why most of these things are used, presently, that simply cannot be replaced by other processes.

Quote

 25,000 uses seems enough for me. It's not magic but it's close to a miracle.

Each to his own though, I appreciate the comments and will look closer at the viability of AW in Oz and the Middle East. I know there are some operational companies.


25K uses, but those uses are generally in related chemical classes.  All of them are hydrocarbons, no exceptions.  Hemp wouldn't do anything to reduce the toxic nature of the manufacture of electronics; at least not beyond the plastic cases.

Nor would I recommend investing in any of those companies trying to make a buck from air-water extraction in the Middle East.

Quote

Remember this is only part one.

Fair enough.  Remember that you asked for commentary.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

I don't like the on-video captions. They are hard to read. See 1:11 for instance.

Also, DON"T TYPE WITH CAPS! It is like shouting.

OK well it's obviously micro-budget but it'll improve over the next 6 months. Gotta fix the sound especially.

Looking for constructive crit on these rough drafts. I figure the intro's too slow, do you agree?

Happy New Year!

Someone else mentioned that, I'll change that for the next cut. Seems we're still making elementary mistakes.

OK will do, prolly no more than 2% gaussian blur in future...

Creighto,

I don't have the time to debate every angle but the points you make will be dealt with in the video so thanks a lot.
Quickly: By 100 per cent, or 50 per cent 'efficiency'- I meant that a free standing room AWG can generate 25 liters per 24 hours in a humid environment, this goes down to 12 liters per 24 hours in dry climates. I understand that wasn't a scientific use of the word efficiency. I suppose I meant: Output drops to 50% in dry climates.

Thats good enough for me... Even if there are other factors such as expense and processing its still worth looking at.

I guess we'll have to let the public decide.

Thanks for the commentary and I'll read any further posts you make with interest, even though I can't respond in full.

Excellent video!

These problems have one source that will be clear if anyone takes action to solve them directly. It's the idea that people can legitimately rule over each other. It will be cool if the video will say so explicitly.

Maybe we can get HotForWords to explain to the people what a bitcoin is Smiley

(http://www.youtube.com/hotforwords)

I'm prety sure that will boost our audience massively.

I sent a request, we'll see if it gets a reply...

Hi Everyone,

Been very busy working on a Kickstarter fundraiser... Genjix, thanks a lot for all those links. Some of them fall under our mission statement, others don't. For example, Mars Direct is interesting but Mass Awakening wants to inspire direct local action, so Space falls outside of our area of interest, although I'm personally fascinated by the subject. Squatting is cool but I want something that can work large scale.

Kwukduck,

Haha thanks for contacting hotforwords. Did she ever respond?

Here's a new version of the intro for yr viewing pleasure. The project is still a work-in-progress, and will continue to be one for months. Watch in 480 if you can.

I look at these kind of "know it all" documentaries as only mere distraction from the real problem which is:

Our freedom and our rights to private property.



None of the problems would exists if we had complete freedom and absolute rights to private property. Also I don't ever pretend I know the answers to problems, no one does for that matter but the free market. That's what we need to focus on if we ever want to have a prosperous world and a bright future.

OMG, why didn't we think of this before?!? If enough of us request it she'll probably do it and it would be MASSIVE publicity for BitCoins.

That's the biggest example of corporatism that I have ever seen. 

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations.

Nothing but idiotic Marxism. I suggest people get in touch with the reality and empirical evidence: John A. Allison(chairman and CEO of BB&T Corporation), "Leadership and Values"

And remember wishing things were one way does not make them so.

Thanks for your input. Marxism? That couldnt be further from the truth, but a ten minute vid wont get the point across. I helped write a PDF which gets free market ideas across a lot better.

My only criticism is that you ask the question "Who controls the economy?" followed by an introduction to Bitcoin.  It's almost as if you are saying Bitcoin currently controls the economy.  You should talk about the banksters first, followed by Bitcoin.

Sharing food? This sounds like socialism. A North Korean bitcoin economy is a fun thought though.
