Civilization Can Ascend Higher
If scientific consensus is correct, the greatest challenge civilization has ever faced is rapidly unfolding. Even on the human timescale, it is clear, the climate is changing. For some people the calamity is already too real. But the situation is not as dyer as it seems. Intellectual leaders and scientists are exploring innovative solutions with powerful research tools. These innovators will reduce suffering and chaos now growing throughout the world by invoking Benign Atmospheric Engineering BAI. Pluvinergy encourages application of our ingenuity urgently, consciously, and courageously.
Pluvinergy is the kind of endeavor, which may be challenging, but which offer transformative potential for civilization. Pluvinergy technology establishes and advances the art and science of atmospheric engineering. These tools are so powerful that even sea level is controllable by advanced designs of Pluvinergy technology such as Pluvicopia.
Most of the underlying principles of Pluvinergy are well proven and understood. Pluvinergy may be considered a hypothesis at this point, but erudite people will appreciate the concept as a simple approach to a simple problem, a cost effective solution on an economic question, and an ecological alternative for the ever more urgent environmental issues. Most importantly, they will comprehend that Pluvinergy is on scale with the planetary challenge.
Realistically, it is only the specific architecture of the current Pluvinergy design that is in question. Since the fundamental physics are basic, intellectual and entrepreneurial leaders will know that a Pluvinergy prototype can be built in less than a decade, and substantial deployment can be accomplished in less than 50 years.
On the other hand, because the energy conundrum seems so intractable, some people jump to the conclusion that economic growth is the problem. Practical visionaries know that it is not. They understand economic growth is necessary now more than ever. This is certain because to build a more beautiful and healthy environment is part of the definition of economic growth. So is civil progress, and it too requires economic growth, and both require clean energy and water.
Currently, civilization is a burden on the biosphere because our energy regimes are dirty and destructive. One would expect that, because most of our energy is produced from combustion of the substances which lock away carbon to release oxygen, which makes macro fauna possible. The nuclear energy option also has too many environmental and security drawbacks to be cost effective, and so it is not much better. Even alternative technologies require subsidy for the same reason, it is not because they are new. Alternative energy can make great improvement over the catastrophic rate of damage we are currently incurring on the biosphere, but it is simply not enough, especially since 75% of the world's population is rapidly increasing its energy consumption rate.
Further, since current technologies require use of the grid, which wastes up to 40% of the energy produced, the whole regime is dirty and destructive. Is it any wonder the environment is damaged?
But energy is always abundant. The very problem of global warming is excess energy in the ocean/atmosphere system. The real challenge is to concentrate energy into the best form for civilization's needs. People who can understand the potential of Pluvinergy will see how civilization can create a verdant world with ever more abundant and peaceful prosperity.
It seems impossible on the surface, but with a little digging into Pluvinergy, and soon Pluvicopia, the inquisitive reader will be pleasantly surprised.
Can we avert the climate catastrophe? Yes.
It might take all century, but people who can grasp the opportunity, know that we can even reverse climate change, and adjust sea level within decades, not centuries.
Although we cannot stop using fossil fuels and nuclear energy without a replacement, determined and creative people can fix whatever problems we define. Such people can see that Pluvinergy is one concept that shows how, and importantly, why, energy production and use can, and must, improve the environment.
How can Pluvinergy Provide Energy, Water, and Food for an ecologically sustainable civilization?
Natural energy concentration.
Pluvinergy is an architecture of natural processes to concentrate atmospheric energy flux. Leaders in conceptual design, know that copying the mechanisms, which nature uses to concentrate solar energy and to cool the planet, are the best and most natural solution for both our water and for our energy needs. Food can be plentiful and environmentally benign when water and energy are abundant and benign.
With abundant energy and water which improves rather than degrades the environmen, all commodity production can also be made harmless, or beneficial, to rebuild verdant world and a sustainable relationship with the rest of the biosphere.
How can better communication solve climate change? Shared Creativity.
Web communication multiplies the creative capacity for all.
Sixty years ago, Philip Carlson designed the downdraft engine. The Israelis and the Indians improved the design and showed how it produces energy cheaper than coal, with a caveat. Meanwhile the Germans designed the opposite concept of an updraft engine, which was built and proven effective in Spain. Today, the Australians are gathering money to build such powerplants in Arizona and Texas. The university of Texas is improving the solar pond complex at El Paso, while the university of Arizona and the US Park Service in New Mexico have built working models combining three of these components necessary for Pluvinergy. The simple underlying physics of Pluvinergy have been proven and used for years, decades, and centuries.
Pluvinergy is an extrapolation of those designs to bring it up to the scale of the climate challenge, by elegantly resolving each caveat. It is a rear confidant person of intellect who has the courage to understand all the challenges, but Pluvinergy specifies those caveats, and specifies all the physics to resolve them.
Is Pluvinergy Proven and Built? It can be.
The book shows the testing that has been done so far. What you are reading is an invitation to perceptive leaders who will build larger prototypes within in a few years. Such a systems will prove all necessary mechanisms for full incorporation. Once demonstrated, corroboration, improvement, and deployment, will develop rapidly, because all subcomponents are independently profitable.
Visionary entrepreneurs know better than anyone, that technology which creates a new era, is highly profitable.
How can Pluvinergy deploy on time to avert climate change? Communication.
The first part is not easy; breaking the mindset of convention is hard. Also, the scale of a powerplant is too big to build a fully incorporated prototype from the start. Especially since a full scale model requires political support, at the interstate and international level.
Nevertheless, courageous people of concern will expedite consideration and peer-review of the concept through the Web. Once the concept is understood and appreciated, experts, using computer-aided discourse and policy formulation will rapidly expedite design, improvement, and development of prototypes. Such innovators may be able to deploy powerplants simultaneously with subcomponent improvement and development. The subcomponents are scalable and economically self sufficient. Political leaders can then show how it is all benign from the start. Talented mathematical modelers can expedite the process even more, by resolving fluid dynamics questions without the need for physical prototypes.
The vision must first be appreciated; this means people who can appreciate it will become the leaders of the new era of lavish economic growth. It is such people who will expedite the normally slow academic process. Then, scientists will fine-tune the theory of the underlying concepts with thousands of PhD level studies of details and dynamics, enriching both the new science, in the process of resolving current questions of theory.
The Purpose of this site is to expedite consideration of the concept and accelerate development.
This decade people will start to create a harmonious, beautiful, and verdant world because we believe we can, and because we will work to save civilization and our beautiful natural world for our children and millions of future generations.
