Home sweet home, dont screw it up any worse!

Green Planet Ethics Climate Change Global Warming, and other thoughts boils down either for real, or a conspiracy theory, however you choose to address it, it is everyone’s problem who lives on Earth. Green energy is the future for Earth, not oil, which is finite and toxic at most levels. Earth cannot sustain our dependence on oil, and like any addiction, we need to take action. Finally admitting we have a problem is a good step, but is far from a solution on climate change. The clock is ticking on Planet Earth, and if this green energy can save us, or help us then we need to do it and do it now!

Apartment Property Managers Focus on Water Conservation Through Sub-metering

Water conservation is a popular trend among municipalities, townships and through-out the multi-family apartment industry. In a three year study by the “National Multiple Family Submetering and Allocation Billing Program”, the potential savings in the apartment sector from requiring residents to pay for their water consumption separately from their rent, found that billing residents for their water usage by direct metering could reduce annual water consumption by an average of 15 percent. This latest research supports the apartment industry’s known fact that people always place greater value on things that they are responsible for financially. Not only do residents use less water when they are paying for it, but it also makes them more aware of the importance of immediately reporting plumbing leaks. A balanced and well implemented utility billing program is one of those rare issues that water companies, regulators, water conservation groups, property management companies and apartment / condominium owners can all be united. American Accounting and Billing Service (AABS) a nationwide full-service utility billing company with the reputation for the lowest billing fees and highest-rated customer service department has compiled a few benefits of why apartment owners and property management companies should install automated meter reading (AMR) water metering systems.

Water sub-metering immediately increases property value and cash flow more than any other ancillary service or comparable capital investment.

A water submetering system provides for the fair allocation of the property’s water and sewer utility costs among its tenants (Allocation or Ratio Utility Billing does not always allocate fairly, according to the USEPA) so residents are happier. Tenants billed for actual water usage will be able to directly affect water consumption and utility costs by becoming more knowledgeable and responsible about water conservation.

Water sub-metering has been proven to decrease water consumption by as much as 8,000 gallons per unit per year according to the USEPA, when compared to non-metered properties thus conserving one of our nation’s most valuable resources.

Water and sewer rates and other utility rates are rising as much as 10% or more per year on average. Some areas of the country have seen water rates double in the last year. A water sub-metering project will protect the property owner from the rising water and sewer utility costs.

The property owner can increase the NOI immediately because payback is fast and monies formerly allocated for water and sewer utilities can be reallocated for maintenance and or renovation, a project which further increases property values.

These benefits are achieved without increasing the workload on the property’s staff and without the associated liability and costs of monthly visits by a utility meter reader.

Implementing a third party water sub metering billing program helps to conserve water and energy and protect the environment.

“There is no question that our business has grown steadily for the past five years because owners are now realizing that water and sewer costs can be avoided by putting in place a successful third party billing system” says Sam Kordares, AABS President. “We here at AABS are now expounding on the notion of water conservation through water submetering to include tapping into the municipality and township sector” Kordares says. Having everyone responsible for their own water usage is the first step to conserve one of earth’s most precious resources.

Important Facts About Building Wind Turbine / Top 10 Facts About Building Wind Turbines

As we know a wind turbine converts the energy of wind into kinetic energy. If the mechanical energy is used directly by machinery, such as pumping water, cutting lumber or grinding stones, the machine is called a windmill. Further if we convert mechanical energy to electricity we use wind turbines also called wind Generator or wind energy converter.

The top or main facts about building wind turbines are that the fuel prices continues to rise hire and hire that results in increase in our utility expenses. The cost to maintain the necessity called electricity is escalating by the hour, and more and more people are looking for suitable alternatives to conventional energy. Renewable energy stands out as the most suitable alternative, with wind power being the most popular and rapidly growing option. Apart from standing out in abilities, wind power energy stands out in its cost-effectiveness and savings potential.

The Statistics show that the wind energy output is increased by four times between 2001 and now. Wind power is becoming increasingly popular because it is clean, renewable, easier and cheaper to access than other forms of renewable energy. Wind turbines have been surfacing all over the world as more and more people are installing windplans wind turbines and taking themselves off the grid. Imagine the considerable savings when compared to getting a commercially installed renewable energy system!

And one more important fact is that wind energy accounts for only about 1% of the world’s alternative energy use. Some of the countries have taken bigger steps for using more and more wind energy. As more people begin using wind turbines and the technology develops, the cost of acquiring wind turbines is gradually decreasing. That is great news for those looking to save using wind energy.

Let we introduce you to one more important fact of wind energy. Your electricity bill can be cut in half right away by installing a single wind turbine to generate half of your energy requirements. The amount of electrical power that you need determines which type and size turbine you will need. Are you getting energized now?

Wind has been a source of green energy for several years. The primary early use of this green energy is to pump water and mill grain. Recently improvements in the technology of wind turbines have enabled the use of harnessed wind for the generation of electricity at a large amount.

Wind Energy neither produces emissions or pollutants during their operation, Thus helps in reducing global warming.

Taking into account the benefits of wind energy windplans has made considerable changes in the technology of developing wind turbines.

John F. Kennedy Inaugural Address 50th Anniversary Today

On January 20, 1961, John F. Kennedy inaugural address was read, which was exactly 50 years ago today. John F. Kennedy gave his one and only Inaugural Address (which you can watch in full below). Widely considered to be the greatest Presidential Inauguration speech, JFK’s address lasted only a little over 13 minutes and in it he came up with the following widespread term, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” We thought it appropriate to post this, because it is important in our history and inspiring for change, which is what we need today in a big way!

So, 50 years later we celebrate the famous short lived president and his speech with the text of John F. Kennedy Inaugural Address speech and a live video of the infamous event found below.

John F. Kennedy Inaugural Address

Vice President Johnson, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Chief Justice, President Eisenhower, Vice President Nixon, President Truman, reverend clergy, fellow citizens, we observe today not a victory of party, but a celebration of freedom—symbolizing an end, as well as a beginning—signifying renewal, as well as change. For I have sworn before you and Almighty God the same solemn oath our forebears prescribed nearly a century and three quarters ago. Read more…

Climate Roadmap Proposal for UN Deal by 2015 Proposed by EU Climate Diplomat To Replace Kyoto Protocol Which Expires in 2012

A climate roadmap has been proposed by the European Union’s top climate diplomat on Nov 5, 2011 for the European Union which could lead to a comprehensive deal by the year 2015 has been well received. Currently, negotiations being conducted under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) have had little success ever since the Copenhagen Summit in December of 2009. The latest set of talks are scheduled from November 28 to December 9, 2011 in Durban, South Africa.

According to Connie Hedegaard, the European Climate commissioner, “I have had very positive signals about the EU proposal for a roadmap, as the idea would give countries more time, namely until 2015 to comply with international climate protection obligations and to introduce the corresponding monitoring.” Hedegaard stated that the new climate roadmap ought to be “binding” with it’s goal to encompass 80% to 85% of greenhouse gas emissions which are man-made, while the current Kyoto Protocol only encompasses roughly 33% in comparison.
