THE ECO SUSTAINABLE S.E.E.E.D. CYCLE
Welcome too S.E.E.E.D. College. The first step of our transitional journey begins with the humble seed: The "seed" improves the human condition by providing food, clothing, shelter and medicines. As it grows into a tree (apart from the integral interconnections with life) it sequesters CO2... but when a tree dies or burns, it releases all the CO2 it had stored back into the atmosphere.
But is there a viable CO2 solution? And if there was, when will we act? Back in 2009 I identified a solution, "Algae Sequestration", but so far no one has because it costs so much - it's beyond the thinkable. But when and if the world was to burn from too much heat trapping carbon - when and if we are desperate enough... we can Pour Algae.
Maybe Pour Algae sequestration will not be needed if we manage to implement low carbon systems across the planet. One of the benefits of chasing down CO2 has raised pollution awareness - now businesses dispose of their industrial by-products responsibly - but a low carbon economy addresses a myriad of needs, cleaning all sectors of pollution.
Awareness to reduce our CO2 footprint has also led us to investigate soil - to discover soil plays a dominant role in the CO2 cycle and ALSO the nutrient cycle. Healthy soil sequesters CO2 and provides better nutritional foods for humans. It's a win win, but we must develop a new Home-Farm system based upon Permaculture to reap the benefits.
When better design and better product comes along in a self sustainable package - when all parts weave together into an amazing holistic solution, we have to sit back and take note of the S.E.E.E.D. Cycle.
The humble seed, whether it's hemp, cane, bamboo, straw or even pineapple - seeds are the building blocks of not just sustainability - but an eco sustainable planet.
The Eco Sustainable S.E.E.E.D. Cycle is the right combination of soil, seed, water, energy, sequestration and self sustainability that addresses Developing Nations a road map to Sustainability. The fear that Developing nations might follow in our western footsteps and burn more coal for creature comforts can be avoided by implementing the S.E.E.E.D. Cycle.
