Greenpeace Canada Installs Solar Panels on Oil Derrick
We're in the midst of a growing climate crisis. We need to transition away from highly polluting sources of carbon, like the tar sands and towards renewables. Luckily, here in Alberta we have the most solar and wind potential in the entire country. Solar technology is available here and now, and it's being utilized across the world. Alberta is only utilizing 1 of its solar potential. When an oil spill happens, it can ruin communities. It can damage our environment. When a solar spill happens, they just call it a nice day.
Canada Virtual Tour Solar Decathlon 2011
Music It's very emotional to be here after two years of really hard work. This is the second time that the University of Calgary has participated in the Solar Decathlon, so definitely a very incredible experience, incredible to be back here. Canada's home is called the TRTL, or TRTL. That stands for technological residence, traditional living. That name comes from our vision of partnering with native people in Treaty Seven in Southern Alberta. So our home is designed to address a number of key issues in native communities there. There are a number of health and safety issues. Mold is a real problem, very high rates of.
Fire. So we really wanted to push the boundaries in that direction and that's why you see a very unconventional shape here, its rounded form and so on. Overall, the home itself came together very quickly and the team has been working very well together, very tightknit. I think we're all really proud to be this far. music So TRTL's rounded form is inspired by the teepee, which is the traditional dwelling of the native peoples. That's where it gets its rounded form. That and the solar power relate back to the sun as a traditional source of energy and life.
Basement Development Calgary Basement Renovations Calgary PLANiT Builders Review
Hey guys this is Dave Vass, I'm from Calgary. I just wanted to do a quick tutorial and tell you about a basement development company here called Planit Builders. Now I don't I work for them, so I'm now an employee of their company or anything like this, this is an honest review for this company. I know the owners of the company, I've met them a few different times, I've dealt with the company and I think it's a fantastic company. Umm. they are, they definitely are a head of the game when it comes to basement development.
And basement renovations and the reason for it is because they specialize in basements. They're not just a company that's saying that they'll do basement development or renovations, that's what they do, that's what they're really good at. So, if you're in Calgary or surrounding area and you're looking to get your basement developed or you're looking to get umm. your basement renovated, I'd definitely take a look at planit Builders, browse around their website, take a look at their gallery, request a quote. I think you're going to be pretty.
Amazed when they come and sit down with you and tell you about their process, it's really cool. I would take a look, take a serious look at them, give them a shot to, for them to show you what they do and ahh, I think that you'll be really happy with them. So, anyway, this is just a quick tutorial to say how pleased I am with the company. umm. how nice they've been to me in particular and the great customer service that they have so just do me a favor and take a look at it if you're in the market for your basement.
Dont Stay in School
I wasn't taught how to get a job but I can remember dissecting a frog I wasn't taught how to pay tax but I know loads about Shakespeare's classics I was never taught how to vote they devoted that time to defining isotopes I wasn't taught how to look after my health but mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell Never spent a lesson on current events instead I studied The Old American West I was never taught what laws there are. I was never taught what laws there are!!! Let me repeat I was not taught the laws for the country I live in,.
But I know how Henry the VIII killed his women. Divorced beheaded died, divorced beheaded survived glad that's in my head instead of financial advice I was shown the wavelengths of different hues of light but I was never taught my human rights Apparently there's 30, do you know them I don't Why the hell can't we both recite them by rote! I know igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks Yet I don't know squat about trading stocks Or how money works at all where does it come from How does the thing that motivates the world function.
Not taught how to budget and disburse my earnings I was too busy rehearsing cursive. Didn't learn how much it costs to raise a kid or what an affidavit is but I spent days on what the quadratic equation is negative b plus or minus the square root of b squared minus 4ac over 2a That's insane, that's absolutely insane. They made me learn that over basic first aid How to recognise the most deadly Mental disorders or diseases with preventable causes. How to buy a house with a mortgage if I could afford it.
Cause abstract maths was deemed more important than advice that would literally save thousands of lives but it's cool, cause now I could tell you if the number of unnecessary deaths caused by that choice was prime. Never taught present day practical medicines, but I was told what the ancient hippocratic method is I've got a headache, the pain is ceaseless what should I take umm. maybe try some leeches Could we discuss domestic abuse and get the facts or how to help my depressed friend with their mental state Ummm. no but learn mental maths.
Because you won't have a calculator with you every day! They say it's not the kids, the parents are the problem Then if you taught the kids to parent that's the problem solved then! All this advice about using a condom but none for when you actually have a kid when you want one I'm only fluent in this language, for serious The rest of the world speaks two, do you think I'm an idiot They chose the solar over the political system So like a typical citizen now I don't know what I'm voting on.

Building Green homes services by Scarlett Custom Homes
Hi, I am Mike Scarlett of Scarlett Custom Homes and if you've been thinking about building a home that has less of an impact on the environment or if you have been thinking about building a home that cuts back on your energy bills, either way I can help you. When we design a energy efficient home for you, there are several factors that we are going to take into account. One is going to be the placement of your home in orientation with the sun. Also the window size, the window placement and how we are going to design your.
Roof. When considering heat and airconditioning systems, we can install a variable speed high SEER energy efficient system all the way up to a hitech geothermal system, whether it be vertical or horizontal loop. We are experienced with solar panels, we can put them on your roof, install them so that they are discrete and still function and give you all the energy that you need. Another product that is popular these days is solar hot water heaters. We can place a solar panel up on your roof and a tank down in your home which allows you to take advantage.
Of the warmth from the sun rays. Something that I can do for your custom home is to plan for the future. I can add space to your electrical panel, run some extra condo to it and this allows you to add electrical solar panels in the future. When we complete building your custom home, we'll go back into a blower door test. This allows us to make sure that your home is air tight and doesn't have excess of leaks. The next thing we will do is go through the attic and rest of the home with an infrared.
