The Green Gap

In the Cold War, we feared a Missile Gap was a strategic weakness. Nowadays, we must awaken to the fact that the Green Gap is true strategic weakness: the nations whose economies will thrive in the coming years will not be those with the biggest factories, but those with the most sustainable, efficient, and ecological markets. What we require is a Strategic "Green Reserve" of ecological design to weather the coming changes that both climate and resource scarcity will force on the international economy.

Aquaponics becomes Bioponics

Just a quick note to say I’m back, and I’ve found the closest thing to the kind of aquaponic system I want here:

The system itself replaces the food input for biomass and other readily available stuff (like pee). I’m keen, and I have been corresponding with the company about getting plans.

This could be linked up to so many other integrated systems it isn’t even funny.
