This Prefab Australian Home Produces More Energy Than It Uses

Published

on

To this day, the prospect of building a home fills many with dread. The reality that a ton of time, money, and materials must be expended before we can enjoy our home can be truly disheartening, especially when we must work with the knowledge that, when we do get our ‘dream home,’ we will go on paying bills to use it until we die. But what if that could all change? Wouldn’t that be an exciting prospect?

In 2015 CE purchased 25 acres of land outside of Toronto, Canada, because we wanted to explore the possibilities of living off grid, growing food and doing other projects, all while having a modern and practical setup that could be imitated and applied anywhere in the world. As time has gone on, we’ve seen some amazing things pop up that give us a lot of hope for the emergence of extremely practical and sustainable homes in our near future — homes which do not require as much work and which also give back to the environment.

Prefabricated homes came on our radar about 6 months ago as something to pay close attention to, and they are becoming a lot more mainstream as time goes on. Finding the balance between feature, price, and practicality has been the rule of thumb for designer and innovators, as any new product coming onto the market will need to convince people to switch from the common model of home building to prefab.

An awesome prefab has come out of Melbourne, Australia, by the company ArchiBlox. They are calling it the world’s first prefab home that will produce more energy than it uses during its lifetime — a big statement that we hope holds true.

The home is about 570 square feet, about the size of the average 1 bedroom condo here in Toronto. It has been designed to exceed carbon-zero expectations to deliver additional “positive contributions” to the environment. Interestingly, the positive contributions of this house are the equivalent of planting 6,095 trees. You see, in Australia, carbon positive is a good thing. It doesn’t mean you are producing more carbon, but rather that you are feeding energy back into the grid.

As stated by ArchiBlox, their Carbon Positive House is designed to “[address] the increasing levels of carbon emissions and the high levels of embodied energy that come with the construction of a standard home.” In order to test and prove their claims of carbon positivity, ArchiBlox ran a life cycle assessment on their prototype home, and the results were very promising. Energy readings suggested the unique design of the home would result in a total savings of -659 kgCO2e (carbon dioxide equivalent). This is like saving 116% per year per occupant when compared against average homes and conventional benchmarks.

Like many of the homes we have looked at that take a run at saving energy and being more sustainable, sun orientation was taken into consideration by ArchiBlox. Here in North America we are used to finding south facing homes to maximize the sun’s heat, while in Australia they look for north facing homes. This is precisely the direction Archiblox oriented their home in order to maximize sun exposure during the day, greatly helping to reduce heating and cooling costs, which happen to be virtually the most expensive part of running a home. At the same time, they got to design and enjoy a beautiful sunroom in which one could also grow food.

Designing the sunroom to serve as both the heating and lighting portion of the home allowed the designers to leave other areas more shaded, yet still well lit. In other words, the cost of cooling a home in the harsh Australian sun would no longer be an issue. As you can see in the pictures below, they chose to grow some herbs on the wall of the sunroom. Adding in a larger garden would not be an issue for avid growers.

Now this is the one thing that gets me about a lot of homes that push for sustainability and low energy costs — they need to be earth-bermed much of the time. Earth-berming is when one side of the house is essentially built into the earth or into a hill, creating a well-insulated area of the home, always opposite to the sun exposed side. While this is a great and creative way of insulating the house, and can still look great, it doesn’t seem all that practical when you consider that everyone would need to have this. How would we convert subdivisions? If houses all needed to face south and yet still be bermed, how many houses could we realistically create? While I dislike the idea of having a ton of homes in one area, this is how our world currently operates, and realistic changes need to work with our current state. It’s difficult to say if this idea could be practical in the future.

But! Archiblox did what many others suggest, using the berm and roof as a green space as well as a space for solar energy generation. They also suggest harvesting rainwater with a simple system that can be applied to the roof.

Ventilation and air flow are other important factors to consider when building a home, and Archiblox took care of this as well. Cross-ventilation is provided through in-ground cooling tubes that bring in colder air from the south side of the house. This air is then pulled through the north-facing windows near the ceiling and out into the sunroom.

While prefab homes and other exciting innovations continue to come to market, I am still left with a thirst for practical solutions to retrofit the current homes that exist in the plenty today. One of the options that fascinates me the most is energy solutions that can run without constant input (i.e. they create their own energy after some time). We have been working closely with one inventor, Paramahamsa Tewari, for 2 years now, and he has an amazing invention that could do just this. I invite you to read more about that here, as I truly believe these technologies will completely transform our future and open up an entirely new world of possibility in the world of home design.

The US Prosecutor Wants Prince Andrew To Speak With The FBI After Ghislaine Maxwell’s Arrest

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    U.S. attorney Audrey Strauss, who is involved in working Ghislane Maxwell's case, welcomes Prince Andrew's co-operation with the FBI.

  • Reflect On:

    Will Prince Andrew be the only high profile person to go down? Could this be a dam that breaks to truly has the majority of the population questioning the character of many people in positions of power? Will this spur conscious self-governance?

What Happened: Jeffrey Epstein’s right hand person, Ghislaine Maxwell was recently arrested on charges connected to Jeffrey Epstein with regards to child sex trafficking and abuse. Now, the acting U.S. attorney Audrey Strauss, said U.S. prosecutors would “welcome Prince Andrew coming in to talk to us” during a press conference announcing the charges against Maxwell on Thursday, as many media outlets are now reporting.

“We would like to have the benefit of his statement,” Strauss told reporters. Virginia Roberts Giuffre, a survivor of Epstein’s abuse, has claimed he and Maxwell trafficked her to have sex with Prince Andrew three times when she was 17 in 2001.

This isn’t the first time the Royal Family has been implicated in such activity. A member of the Royal family was claimed to be part of a suspected pedophile ring under investigation by the police in the late 1980s, a former Metropolitan police officer has said.  The officer was told by a detective sergeant that the investigation into the ring, which was also claimed to include an MP, was shut down for national security reasons. “I was in a car with two other vice squad officers … The detective sergeant said he had just had a major child abuse investigation shut down by the CPS regarding a royal and an MP,” he told the Sunday Mirror newspaper. “He did not mention names, but he said the CPS had said it was not in the public’s interest because it ‘could destabilise national security’.”

In fact, there are many examples from many different countries within Europe that correlate with elite level pedophilia and not only sexual abuse of children, but physical abuse as well as the murder of them. Multiple Royal Families have been implicated, as well as Vatican Personnel, high ranking global leaders, politicians and more.

This is not to say all are involved, but from the outside looking in, it seems a significant amount are.

If you want to dive deeper into the topic and see more examples, you can refer to this article I published a few months ago.

We have also interviewed a survivor of elite pedophile rings like the one Epstein and Maxwell ran. Her name is Anneke Lucas and you can watch her full testimony here on CETV.

You can also watch a recent documentary called Out of Shadows that explores this topic in detail on CETV as well.

If you want to read more about Epstein ad Maxwell, you can do that here.

Why This Is Important

Could Maxwell’s arrest bring down more high profile people? It could, and that’s why it’s important. With this, the collective would really see how far this goes and we would have the opportunity to ask ourselves why high profile people are involved, and why there is such a big cover up. Further, we could explore why we support these people making major decisions for the human race with regards to political policy that governs all aspects of life, from health, to education and more.

If politicians ad high profile individuals are in fact involved in this, which survivors of their rings commonly claim, we are giving our power over to people who are in a state where they lack empathy and connection, and are capable to doing thigs the general public would never dream of doing to others. This is why more people are starting to really explore this topic, because it changes how we go about giving our power to people like this.

The Takeaway

Humanity is in a process of ‘Breaking the Illusion’ we have come to accept about our reality. We have been living from a collective story that states we elect good people into government, and they act in our best interest. This categorically is not the case, and part of our collective awakening to creating solutions that can make our world thrive is waking up from this illusion we have chosen to accept.

People are beginning to learn en masse that high profile figures are involved in such acts like extreme occult rituals, sex trafficking and pedophilia, and they are beginning to wonder why.

Jeffrey Epstein & Ghislaine Maxwell Are Just The Tip of The Iceberg: This Goes Much Deeper

Published

on

What Happened: Jeffrey Epstein’s confidant, Ghislaine Maxwell, has been arrested and charged with conspiracy to persuade minors to travel and engage in sex acts as well as enticing and transporting a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts. Many of Epstein’s victims have mentioned Maxwell a number of times as Epstein’s right hand person. They have also stated that Maxwell has been involved in these sexual acts with minors along with Epstein.

She, as well as Epstein, attracted young girls by promising them money, fame, careers and more. In some cases they became very close with their victims, which has been seen as a form of brainwashing that has resulted in extreme trauma for many of their victims.

According to the BBC, Maxwell “assisted, facilitated, and contributed to Jeffrey Epstein’s abuse of minor girls by, among other things, helping Epstein to recruit, groom and ultimately abuse victims known to Maxwell and Epstein to be under the age of 18”.

How Deep This Really Goes: Epstein’s case goes beyond just the dealings involving Maxwell and himself, and the issue of trafficking very young children, and teenaged children, is much more widespread than Epstein. Epstein is being made out to simply be a rich billionaire with connections that allowed him to entice young women into his home to be sexually abused, but we really need to talk about just how widespread this type of abuse is among people who are made out to be idols, like multiple Vatican officials, politicians and celebrities.

There is reason to believe that Epstein’s his job was actually to entice powerful people within politics to have sex with young women and then ultimately entrap them, whether it’s with photographs or hidden cameras or thorugh other methods. For example, in an interview with Zev Shalev, former CBS News executive producer and award-winning investigative journalist for Narativ, the former senior executive for Israel’s Directorate of Military Intelligence, Ari Ben-Menashe, claimed not only to have met Jeffrey Epstein and his alleged madame Ghislaine Maxwell, back in the 1980s, but that both Epstein and Maxwell were already working with Israeli intelligence during that time period.

There are multiple allegations that Epstein was not only a pedophile involved in the trafficking of children, but actually an intelligence agent as well. This isn’t the only time “Defense” organizations have been implicated in this type of activity. In the recent past, multiple military personnel have been arrested, hundreds of Pentagon employees were found to be involved with child porn.

It’s also important to acknowledge that this isn’t the only example. Another great example would be the  NXIVM case, where multiple members were implicated in some shady activity. Billionaire Clare Bronfman was indicted on racketeering charges. These charges were connected to her role as “Operations Director” for NXIVM. Clare Bronfman is the daughter of Charles Bronfman, a Canadian/American businessman and philanthropist. A very powerful person.

Just like with the Epstein case, the Clinton’s are mentioned with regards to NXIVM as well.

The Rolling Stone reported:

“There are strange political connections as well. Mark Vicente, a documentary filmmaker and former high-ranking member of the group, testified at the trial of NXIVM head Keith Raniere that Clare Bronfman, the billionaire Seagram’s heiress and alleged benefactor of the organization, approached him and a few other members of the group to help her make a contribution to a Clinton campaign.” (source)

This kind of stuff is all over the place, and the theme involves high ranking people. As a paper published in European Psychiatry details:

Research eventually led to the Franklin scandal that broke in 1989 when hundreds of children were apparently flown around the US to be abused by high ranking ‘Establishment’ members. Former state senator John W DeCamp, cited as one of the most effective legislators in Nebraska history, is today attorney for two of the abuse victims. A 15 year old girl disclosed that she had been abused since the age of 9 and was exposed since the age of 9 and was exposed to ‘ritual murder’ of a new born girl, a small boy (who was subsequently fried and eaten) and three others.

There are many more examples that implicate the Royal Families of multiple countries, and many other shocking examples of elite level pedophile rings.

If you want to dive in a bit deeper into more research, I published an article a few months ago that goes a lot deeper.

To go down the rabbit hole even deeper on this, we have conducted an interview with a survivor of elite child sex trafficking/slavery. You can access the full interview and start your free trial HERE on CETV, a platform we created to help combat internet censorship and allow us to continue to do our work and get the word out about various issues and topics.

The Takeaway

There is so much evidence showing that the global financial elite (various members of upper tier politics, corporations, Hollywood, Royal Families, and people in positions of great power, the Vatican, etc.) are engaged in such behaviour, and quite a significant amount of them. This article doesn’t even represent the tip of the iceberg and the countless amounts of examples that are out there. This activity has been able to sustain itself because of the power people involved hold.

We are talking about people who have not only experienced a tremendous amount of trauma themselves most likely. So we have to ask ourselves, are you really surprised that our world economic and political systems are plagued with corruption? If these powerful people wanted to, they could come together, pool their resources and help the citizenry create a human experience where everybody thrives. Yet instead, we have a different experience, why? Why is their desire abuse and control? Why do we do the same in our individual lives at times?

Why do we keep participating?

If you watch our interview with Anneke Lucas, you will see how there is a very expansive and uplifting message that comes out of all of this, despite the disheartening subject matter. Human trafficking and child abuse represent the most untold stories of our generation, as they affect hundreds of thousands of people every year, many of them children. We are slowly coming to terms with the fact that this happens at elite levels, done by some of the most ‘prominent’ and powerful people. It’s time to talk about it, and it’s time to ask more questions. Let’s keep disclosure coming and continue to ask ourselves why were hand over our thoughts and power to people who are lacking morality, empathy, and have no desire to see the human race thrive.

Ghislaine Maxwell Arrested By FBI on Charges Connected To Jeffrey Epstein

Published

on

What Happened: Jeffrey Epstein’s confidant Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested this morning in New Hampshire according to FBI spokeswoman Adrienne Senatore. At this time, charges against Maxwell are sealed, and prosecutors have scheduled a midday press conference in New York to provide more details on the case.

Charges against Maxwell came almost a year after Epstein was arrested by FBI agents on July 6, 2019. Jeffrey Epstein allegedly killed himself in a federal jail in August 2019, although many believe he was killed given he could name many high profile figures connected to his ring.

Why It Matters: Maxwell is heavily connected to sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein who operated a sex/pedophile ring that tailored to high profile individuals, business people, entertainers and politicians.

Her arrest may be important in helping to bring down more people connected to the ring which include Hillary and Bill Clinton amongst other high profile names.

The Takeaway:

Humanity is in a process of ‘Breaking the Illusion’ we have come to accept about our reality. We have been living from a collective story that states we elect good people into government, and they act on our best interest. This categorically is not the case, and part of our collective awakening to creating solutions that can make our world thrive is waking up from this illusion we have chosen to accept.

People are beginning to learn en masse that high profile figures are involved in such acts like extreme occult rituals, sex trafficking and pedophilia, and they are beginning to wonder why. They are also beginning to question why we put our trust and support in people who operate in this manner.

Looking Deeper:

We have interviewed a survivor of elite pedophile rings like the one Epstein and Maxwell ran. Her name is Anneke Lucas and you can watch her full testimony here on CETV.

You can also watch a recent documentary called Out of Shadows that explores this topic in detail on CETV as well.
