Energy Retention, The evolution of Architecture and Engineering

Right now between both modern-day architecture and engineering lays the basis for all the dependency, on fuel and electricity, the civilized world is experiencing today. With the mechanisms needed to sustain life continually being designed to be plugged in to the grid in one way or another or require refined fossil fuels to operate than this seems like a great place to start. They say that 40% of all the energy resources that are taken from this planet are used to produce electricity to power modern-day architecture. They say there are approximately 150 million homes in the United States alone. When A&E Evolves using the concepts of Energy Retention to make architecture reach the level of "Truly Self-Sustaining" then how long will it take to retrofit and bring into fruition. If we managed to retrofit 7.5 million homes a year then this transaction would take 20 years to convert our architecture to a point of being energy independent. Just think about how many jobs/opportunities would come to fruition during the evolution of A&E. It's taken centuries to get to where we are at. How long will it take to move into another direction?

On Earth Day 2012 I launch my website , Pure Energy - energy used in it's simplest form. From this website you will find links to a book that I wrote and then my latest website. This one is the basis for what I called an Idea Sharing Network. Since these ideas are fairly simply they wouldn't be able to be protected by a patent so this is why I sharing them with those who just might be looking for something new. Think about what could happen when we start to think outside the box. A&E in every town could put their own twist on these new ideas.

I burned out promoting such ideas to the blockheads. But hey, I wish you luck!
