The Three Aspects of Sustainable Living!
By Leslie Delong
While I’m a big fan of Southernprepper1 in recent videos (links listed below) I find we have disagreements on “The Three Aspects of Sustainable Living”
Heat: While SP1 and I both agree on using wood for a renewable heating source, I disagree with using the average wood stove. Lets face it, if everyone had to make the switch to wood now, we’d run out of forest within a few years. Though they have made great strides in making wood stoves more efficient, they pale in comparison to Rocket Mass Heaters. A Rocket Mass Heater is over 75% efficient. Meaning that if you use 8 cords of wood to heat your home in winter with the average wood stove, you can cut it down to just over 2 cords for the whole winter. Rocket Mass Heaters also burn wood almost completely, leaving no smoke or smell (after the first minute of start up) just carbon dioxide. These two main reasons alone make it worth the investment. However, the Rocket Mass Heater is also extremely cheap and easy to build. Continue reading Three Aspects of Sustainable Living!→
This Thursday on GaltStrike Tom will give a recap of his trip in the Philippines and what he has learned about how we all can improve on our own sustainable living and reducing our on-grid lifestyles. Plus a discussion with Catman about how the destruction of family unity and values in America has led to the loss of even more of our freedoms!
Inspired by Ayn Rand’s book Atlas Shrugged and the Character John Galt. Our goal is to teach and share every possible “Legal” method of reducing and eliminating our tax footprints thereby starving the banker oligarchies of the world.
Mission: To share every idea possible to cut our production, expenses, and taxes to starve the banker oligarchy.
Description: We will accomplish our goals by learning how to reduce our labor and expenses within the “looters and moochers” economy, and redirecting our efforts more towards our own “personal” economies (our own Galt’s Gultch).
Tom of “American Preppers Network” talks about his upcoming trip to the Philippines where he will be demonstrating off grid and sustainable living. Some of the projects will include water filtration and water purification using a chlorine generator, vertical gardening, cooking with a Sun Oven and washing clothes by hand using the Breathing Mobile Washer. What can we learn about third world living conditions and what can it teach us about sustainable living and reducing our tax foot print. Join us for all this and more on GaltStrike!
“APN at the NPS expo. Sustainable Living and Off Grid wins the show at the expo. On this episode of GaltStrike Tom from the APN met with Dennis Mcclung from Doomsday preppers and will share some of their discussion they had about aquaponics and his website gardenpool.org. Plus we learned some cool information about wood gasifiers, waters stills, mini-water purification plants and several other great ideas to unplug from society.
