It began with sunshine and seawater on a desert seacoast in Mexico. Carl Hodges' team pumped seawater onshore, using it to humidify greenhouses, and then to grow shrimp and fish. The research continued on the desert seacoasts of the Middle East & Africa with the crowning touch: oil-seed crops and fast growing trees that thrive on unadulterated seawater. At the same time, the world became alarmed by global warming, atmospheric carbon dioxide and rising sea levels. As if planned from the very beginning, all of these perils --- even sea level rise - are addressed by the onshore system. Sunshine and seawater, providing food and fuel to help solve environmental problems at a profit.
DOW or Deep Ocean Water has the potential to help solve global warming. Since tchnologies employing DOW have effluents that are colder than the atmosphere, they cool the atmosphere. In Deep Ocean Water, we examine the purity, temperature, air conditioning, and renewable energy applications of DOW. Narrated by John Craven PhD, intrepid oceanographer and inventor.

Agriculture employing Deep Ocean Water (DOW) can help increase growth rates by cooling garden soil below the dew point, at the Natural Energy Lab where DOW is pumped ashore. A closed pipe system buried beneath the soil is designed to regulate and circulate the cold water, chilling the soil to 45oF, well below the dew point, so moisture drawn from the atmosphere moistens the cool garden, much like condensation gathers on a glass of iced tea.
We are riding a new wave of industrial revolution into the RENEWABLE ENERGY AGE. Renewable Energies bring only advantages and no burden to the world.
The ECO SUSTAINABLE PLANET and ECO SUSTAINABLE TECHNOLOGY sections often overlap - as crops become fuel and microorganisms make electricity - the line is blurred and indeed that is the desired 'interconnectedness' effect.
All these exciting new green technologies could become marketable at any time. To clarify exactly what is available now, you'll find WAPSEC is in the business of WATER & POWER SECURITY. WAPSEC supplies 'wholistec' solutions with leading-edge technology from Germany and Australia.
ECO SUSTAINABLE TECHNOLOGY Ecology and Technology working together in synergy. SUSTAINABLE is 24 x 7. ECO SUSTAINABLE is when there's no waste. The waste product of one process is fuel for the next.
THE AGE of ECOLOGICAL SUSTAINABILITY - inspiration leads to innovation, and solutions provide engineers and architects methodologies to green the world. Man learns to live with the planet.
