FACE TO FACE w/ EARTH'S CLIMATE 101



It's all about The Shoreline.

Earth's Climate is changing.

Sea Level is rising.

Our response and reaction to these changes will dominate the 21st Century.

What we do next is the key to our future well being.

Check out this video.

It will help put things in perspective before we proceed.

Climate Change, Sea Level Rise, and their effects are the driving force behind this presentation.

Lynn's Future...

With the above in mind, here's an idea.

This plan showcases Lynn Harbor itself ( not just the property along its shoreline ), and introduces Lynn to The World as a forward thinking, locally focused, globally aware, environmentally conscious city on The East Coast of USA.



This page is your lead-in.

My suggestion/proposal begins with The Lynn Maritime Future Center.

maritime future center

Everything leads up to the day when self-launching, recyclable, zero debris Telecommunications Satellite G2 lifts off from a floating platform outside Egg Rock on her way to orbit.

There's a lot more, including Tidal Electric Generation at the mouth of The Harbor and The Infinitely Sustainable Lynn Electric Ferry, developed and manufactured in Lynn using turbines and technology from General Electric.

This partnership will provide jobs and increase the tax base.

SEE BELOW...LEARN MORE...follow links...green text and images link to the many aspects of this project.

Hang onto your hats, Kids.

Here we go!

Lynn is about to lead The Global Economy into The Future.

Introducing The 21st Century Nexus

Climate Change   Maritime Commerce  
Satellite Telecommunications   Global Economy

Climate Change will effect Maritime Commerce as Sea Level rises.

Satellite Telecommunications makes Maritime Commerce work.

Maritime Commerce makes The Global Economy work.

These four elements are essential to our survival.

That’s The 21st Century Nexus.

Climate Change is the root.

The Future stems from there.


Think LOCAL...Act GLOBAL...

The Infinitely Sustainable, Tidal Powered, Lynn Electric Ferry...


It has come to my attention that The City of Lynn ( in partnership with The State of Massachusetts Seaport Advisory Council ) has invested in a proposed commuter ferry, to run between Lynn and Boston Harbor.

There seem to be many questions regarding the profitability of said ferry.


Lynn is involved in a huge waterfront development project which hopes to provide the ridership, but this is still several years down the road.


The issue is how to maintain the ferry service during early stages of ridership.


Lynn EDIC boss, and major ferry proponent, Jim Cowdell, has hinted that State Subsidies are the solution.


The Lynn Maritime Future Center has a better idea.


I've been proposing that Lynn partner with GE to develop Tidal Electric Generation at the outflow of The Harbor.

Let's start with a prototype tidal generator that delivers power to a charging station located at the ferry dock.

GE develops a battery powered engine for the ferry.

All of this can be done via retrofits using available technology.

With adaptation and evolution the concept of a tidal powered electric ferry becomes doable in very short order.

The ferry powers up every time it returns to Lynn. 

As an added bonus, electric motors with tidally recharged batteries become the choice for ferries everywhere.

GE and The City of Lynn enter into a new phase of their long partnership.

This is the perfect situation because ferries always go point to point.

If batteries can last the round trip they can be recharged.

The vessel is large enough that the weight of battery packs is not an issue.

They can be placed low in the hull as ballast.

With power provided by tidal generation, fuel costs become insignificant.

This makes operating ferry service during the development stage feasible.

On the Green front, Tidal Electric Generation utilizes the power of The Ocean but does not use up anything.

And, as another added bonus, the ocean and tides are a natural resource on the upswing.

Sea level rise means that tides, unlike petroleum, coal, and natural gas, are not in danger of running out any time soon.

The Lynn Maritime Future Center can make The Infinitely Sustainable, Tidal Powered, Lynn Electric Ferry into the Global Investment Attraction required by the City of Lynn to put the waterfront development plan over the top.

This can be shown as workable and the infrastructure can be under way within a year if positive minded people got together.

GE would be smart to say yes.

It would open a whole new industry for them.

Turbines and electric motors are right up their alley. 

Stay Tuned...more to follow RE how to, why, etc...

Re-Entry from Space...

I've been working to devise a vehicle that returns safely and gently to Earth from Space since 1959.

Problem solved.

Along the way, I realized that my Re-Entry solution also leads to an alternative launch technique.

Telecomsat G2 will "Fall Into Space" at one tenth the cost of current launch systems.

Billions of $$$ can be redirected to essential infrastructure and sustainability issues here on Earth.

Numerous problems solved.

Telecomsat G2 is Earth's first self-launching, recyclable, zero debris spacecraft.

The launch vehicle is the satellite.

G2 comes from Lynn, Mass, USA.

G2...Lynn Harbor...21st Century Nexus...

The image at top of page shows Telecomsat G2 returning from Space, preparing to land at Lynn Harbor.

Below you see an aerial view of The Harbor.

G2 is approaching from the upper right corner.

The landing path takes G2 directly over the beach and causeway to splashdown at The Harbor.


What?

Does that really say a satellite is landing at Lynn Harbor?

Returning satellites don't land.

They burn up on re-entry.

And, even if they did return safely to Earth, why would one land at Lynn Harbor?

That's what the 21st Century Nexus is all about.

Lynn Harbor is the focus of said Nexus.

Funding this project...


upcyclelynn


UPCYCLE LYNN will get the ball rolling.

***



There are a lot of 'crowd funding' websites out there.

An individual or corporation can appeal directly to the public for funds by presenting their project via these websites.

The public chooses to support individual projects based upon the online presentation.

Here's a better, much more direct process.

"1,000,000 Kindle Power" refers to the sale of one million units of my online self help pamphlet via Amazon Kindle...( available for use with any tablet or PC ).

Click the image to learn more and read a sample.


The sale of one million units at $.99.ea will put $350,000 into Lynn Mass USA's coffers.

This $$$ will be invested in the local economy.

Amazon gets 65% or $650,000 for providing the venue.

This will inevitably come to Amazon boss Jeff Bezos' attention.

Bezos is an active investor in projects for the future, including his own private Space Venture ( Blue Origin ).

His interest will be piqued once he makes a bunch of $$$ and learns of a revolutionary Space Launch and Recovery System.

AND...most importantly...

It will be clear to the whole world that we Lynners have our eyes on the future and we can solve our own economic woes...out of thin air.

This will, in turn, draw Global Economic Interest to Lynn Harbor.

That's creative 'crowd funding' with an added bonus.

This early aspect of my long range plan will generate funds, provide media exposure beyond the local scene, and begin the development process.

How will it work?

We have the perfect situation to generate a Global Phenomenon right here in Lynn.

ESSENTIAL LYNNESS

Essential Lynness is your portal to participation in the success of this project.

Lynn's cultural, ethnic, and religious diversity comes from all over The Planet.

We have access to The Globe via our own personal networks.

Picture the vast number of people who can be reached in moments via these networks.

One million is only a thousand thousand.

Global networking provides Lynn Mass USA with access to a thousand thousand people easily.

All we will ask is that they spend $.99 to improve their outlooks and brighten their horizons, forward the info within their own networks, and support a project that will benefit every Human on Earth.

Think of this as a Community Project.

Our primary job is to spread this sense of Community from Lynn to the rest of the world.

It goes back to the old saying, "Think Locally...Act Globally".

With access to the www, spreading a message becomes a simple process.

Our goals are Locally Focused, Globally Relevant, and beneficial to all.

On the local front...



While the past was truly a 'glorious time', that time is over.

The future is upon us.

LMFC Gallery celebrates our glorious maritime past with my graphic impressions of old time waterfront beauty, in support of Earth's Maritime Future.

These prints will fill any interior space with a sense of expansiveness.

It's like having a "Window On The Water".

Picture the pleasant thoughts and feelings you get while sitting by the seaside and bring them home forever.

You'll smell salt air and hear seagulls in the distance.

That sounds like a good start to me.
