The Tidal Irrigation and Electrical System becomes Haven Atolls a shelter for coral and ocean peoples

on Apr 19th 2016

In 2015 Ocean Foesters, a multidisciplinary team, began a detailed investigation into The Tidal Irrigation and Electrical System. This process revealed that developments embodied in the patent pending Tidal Irrigation and Electrcal System 2 were substationally on the right track. This means that while the basis of this website is correct the details are out […]

TIESystem Algal Growth can Replace Fossil Fuels

on Mar 31st 2015

In December of 2014, I presented a poster at the American Geophysical Union’s conference in San Francisco titled ‘Carbon Sequestration through Sustainably Sourced Algal Fertilizer: Deep Ocean Water’. It compared the TIESystem (the central purpose of this website) with other potential users of deep ocean water (DOW). The paper then went on to examine the […]

Sharp is claiming to have achieved a new record in direct methanol fuel cell power output of .3W/cc. This is very good. The power consumption needs of all sort of devices can be met by that. The general loss of energy by using electricity to recharge a lithium-ion battery relative to the amount of methanol […]
