                        INTEGRATED BIOSYSTEMS FOR A BETTER WORLD
            Since the Gods gave us dominion over the planet and Moses walked the land oxygen levels have fallen from 26% to 20%, half of all plant and animal species are extinct, 2/3rds of the rain forests have been cut down, half the oxygen producing plankton in the oceans is missing, half the fish populations are gone, oceans are polluted with plastic and oil, half of the continents have been turned into deserts, half of all arable land is depleted of minerals, and most of the topsoil has been washed downstream into the oceans. Thousands of tons of radioactive waste have been dumped into the oceans. The Chernobyl meltdown contaminated most of the food in the Soviet Union. Over five thousand nuclear bombs have been detonated worldwide. Most of the land in the Middle East and Europe has been contaminated with depleted uranium. For the human race to survive the next thousand years we need to come up with a better plan.
            We are at a fork in the road where we could witness the end of western civilization. We need to create jobs and follow in the footsteps of the rest of the world by utilizing other sources of energy. This will reduce our dependence on foreign oil and save lives, save resources and eliminate wars. Corporate greed and our monetary system are partially to blame for this destruction of the environment. Maybe we should take a closer look at the Quaker and Mennonite methods of sustainable agriculture that doesn’t burden the environment?   
I envision small villages or colonies of five to ten families each living in harmony with nature on five to forty acres of land. Each colony will have one or more aquaponic greenhouse capable of providing all the protein and plant nutrients with enough surpluses left over to trade with populated areas to purchase farm equipment. Each colony will utilize solar, wind and clean burning pellet stoves. Transportation costs are reduced substantially. The consumption of oil for transportation and plowing up the land will be reduced to a bare minimum. Sustainable agriculture is one that doesn’t burden the environment. Little or no soil is used and the only coal and oil burned will be in certain industrial centers for the production of solar cells and machinery used by the colonies.
Fred Murkowski of the University of Wisconsin Sea Grant is assisting Will Allen and other urban framers to develop aquaponic systems that can produce fish protein along with greens for human consumption. www.Seagrant.wisc.edu also www.GrowingPower.org
One of Will Allen’s trade secrets is using multilevel tiers above the fish tanks that effectively turn 3000 square feet of space into 5000 square feet of growing area.     

I believe INTEGRATED BIOSYSTEMS is the answer. We propose to construct five test colonies costing approximately one million dollars each. We are currently constructing a small test colony out of pocket. We will accept any donations in kind.

    A business for a better world by Henry Kroll:

    • It creates jobs!
    • It lessens the threat of terrorism!
    • It reduces America's dependence on foreign oil.
    • It creates and utilizes alternate sources of energy.
    • It takes away the reason to go to war thereby saving human lives.
    • It reduces air pollution and greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide.
    • It allows people to become free and independent of the energy companies.
    • According to the EPA clean burning fuel pellets are comparable to natural gas.
    • Byproducts are animal feed, bedding, insulation, auto conversions, mulch and compost.
    • No special health precautions are necessary to handle the products.
    • Our company is a legal non-profit that can accept donations.
    • Our company can train personnel for other companies.
    • Products are non-toxic and biodegradable.
    • Our company recycles!

    “In 1955, 55% of the food consumed in Alaska was produced in Alaska. Currently a mere 5% of the food Alaskans eat is produced in Alaska. If some kind of natural disaster like an earthquake or war were to occur Alaskans would run out of food in a week. To experts concerned with the health, stability and economy of Alaska this is a big problem. There is a great need for more greenhouses to ensure the safety of its population. From being relatively self-reliant and independent we have become completely vulnerable and completely dependent on the next plane. -- Danny Consenstein, Director of Alaska Farm Service the United States Department of Agriculture.

    Consenstein points to three justifications for needing a better local food system in Alaska.
    1. Economics –Alaskans spend $2-billion a year on food. Ninety-five percent of that is leaving the state. Imagine if just 10 % more stayed here $200-million dollars would be bouncing around local communities.” Why are we sending all our dollars to California and Mexico?
    2. Health! “We clearly have health problems in Alaska – obesity, diabetes, especially in the Bush. It’s got to be connected to the food that we’re eating. If we can provide healthier, fresh nutritious, local food, it’s got to be good for Alaska.” He said.
    3. Security and the ability to be more self-reliant in an emergency. Advances in transportation are part of the reason why Alaska moved more to importing food than producing its own, because it became faster and cheaper to bridge the gap between Alaska and beyond. But that gap still exists, both between and the main food producing regions of the world, as well as in Alaska, with rural communities separated from main distribution hubs. An earthquake, fire, flood, avalanche, volcanic eruption or a number of other uncontrollable events could disrupt supply chains, with grocery stores only stocking enough to feed residents for a few days to, maybe a week.” We want to build aquaponic greenhouses combined with small pellet fuel plants. Can you help?
