We meaning me and the very cool people who have supported my project "Around the world on 80 Watts".
Have been doing a lot of research. Now for many that means digging through what other people say on the web, but as an advocate of the "Think for Yourself" campaign I personally go about putting theory to the test and duplicate experiments done by others to prove things can be done. For those of you who don't know, that is called scientific method.
So I'll get off my soapbox and report.
The campaign video says, "We found a 130 research vessel in Alaska and we are going to sail it around the world on 80 watts."
I still intend to do that but we may have to get another boat because I don't think we are going to have the funding in time to save that particular boat.
I have found several boats that are equally good for this venture though more expensive and will give updates for that later.
So for the experiments I have been doing.
I found an even better candidate for the charger system based on John Bedini's work called a joule thief.
This little charger is basically silent and charges anything from a AAA battery to a 12 volt car battery.
I have been running many experiments with it with some very promising results.
I have also been doing experiments with electrolysis in water and generating hydrogen.
The reason for that is that nearly any normally aspirated engine can be run on Hydrogen without major modifications.
That being said I have video to demonstrate.
To further this project I am doing a fundraising campaign and fully intend to endorse the sources of the technologies that I discover as well as when possible do interviews of the individuals responsible for their inception.
I think a high quality video production on these alternative energy devices is long overdue and would like to be the one to do it.
So here evolves the purpose of the project and what I think is really going to be the Mission Statement for the production.
"To reveal and demonstrate working alternative technologies and support the innovators that create them."
This really is a huge undertaking and I appreciate all the support I have gotten so far.
For instance the people who have directly funded the campaign on Indiegogo and to the individual who donated the jetboat we have now for sale to further research and production.
We still need a lot more help and you can do just that by sharing the campaign link or contributing, telling your friends, commenting there on the campaign or the Youtube channel or of course here on the blog.
There is so much more to come and I am more excited about this project than anything I have ever been involved in.
What does this meant to you?
I will show all what works and how you can integrate it into your daily lives as well as provide links for products from the inventors and the companies that support them.
You will save a great deal of money by employing these technologies and we get to make discoveries that could change the way we look at energy, transportation and lower the carbon footprint of the entire country.
These are the Watts in your wallet and our mission statement to you and all that help and tune in to the show.
