Build a Green St Louis!

I believe that Sustainable Buildings are the future of the Construction Industry and our future energy needs will be met from true Clean Energy Sources as well as creating Net Zero Energy Efficient Buildings for a sustainable future. https://www.google.com/adsense/direct-campaign-agreement?w=ca-pub-7737777276609990&id=ACqy6HsibjmMyx3S0_vH2SJr66SdlmlSqgJL0sjrT2733nTeuSInffIdAsDCF23CZCZXflpx7EZG

My Number 1 Reason the USA needs more Solar Energy

copied from G+ post comments: The points I will make are the reasons that matter to me and not necessarily the points that other Clean Energy Pros might give as their first reasons on "why to have solar panels on your home".  Starting with my Number 1 Reason the USA needs more renewable energy.

Reducing and Eliminating Wars over Oil--In a recent blog post I'm sick and tired of my Brothers and Sisters being hurt or killed for OIL  I touched on the Army Soldiers positive attitude and how the Medical Professionals treatment is enabling the Soldier to have as normal of life as possible after a road side bomb caused both his arms and legs to be amputated.  Both the Army Soldier and Medical Team deserve props!

Everyone knows; but, few will admit- the Republican Warmongers with their Republican Lies started the fights in the Middle East over  under the guise of searching for Weapons of Mass Destruction.   These wars over oil have and are costing $millions$ of dollars-billed to we the taxpayers.  

--Maybe the Military can put a price tag on payouts to dead soldiers families but I can't put a price tag on the value that the loss of life brings from loosing a family member.  Money will not and cannot replace the loss of a loved one.

--What really chaps my ass is the new law where the Republican led Congress-Government, who put these soldiers in harms way is now abandoning the injured soldiers by cutting their Postwar Benefits.  They may have helped the Soldier mentioned above but how many are they abandoning (IMO they helped this Soldier as an experiment of sorts when you read between the lines sure they want to help him-but the greedy medical companies are doing it for future profits.)  

They throw the Soldiers into battle then fail to help them when they get home.  The Soldiers have emotional scars as well as physical scars.  Many of the Soldiers who come home can't find work and when you can't find work or a job a person tends to dwell on the situation and its hopelessness.  This is what I feel is the main reason behind all the Military Suicides.  I can lend a little credibility to this fact from observing my own actions-when I'm working I don't have time to dwell on life's problems-I have to pay attention to what I'm working on.  Then somehow my mind subconsciously figures out, mends, solves, or comes up with a solution and way of dealing with the problem or issue.

This subject is one of the hardest subjects for me to write or talk about.  I care.  I care what happens to my Brothers and Sisters of America.  I want whats best for us all and I'll say it again:

I'm sick and tired of my brothers and sisters

 being hurt and killed for OIL. To all the Soldiers

 that were injured and died in Wars Over Oil I'm

 truly sorry that our Government efforts led by

Republican Lies by Republican WarMongers

put you in this situation.

How many  just preached we need to go to war against #Russia over their issues with  in .  Does this sound familiar to anyone?  

For everyone who says I'm a peace sympathizer or whatever. I joined the US Army Long ago to fight in what I thought was going to be a showdown with Iran during the Iran-Contra Affair.  
Yeah I was young and dumb and thought the USA was always right.  

end part 1.

Sick and Tired of my Brothers and Sisters being hurt or killed for OIL

To all the Soldiers that were injured and died in #WarsOverOil I'm truly sorry that our Government efforts led by #RepublicanLies by #RepublicanWarMongers put you in this situation.

Did anyone else see the#lateshowwithdavidletterman last night 3/3/14  with the #Army #Soldier ?  If you didn't see the show here is the You Tube Video


 Props to the Medical Team and the Soldiers positive attitude.

Here is a Youtube video of the interview with David Leterman


Edited and copied from G+ post: now that I'm back on my comp I'll add a little more to what I felt was one of the best interviews of the past few months.  This Soldier was injured when a roadside bomb exploded by the truck he was in- and his arms and legs were amputated because of the damage.

It was reported that those Kick-Ass doctors performed double arm reattachment from Donor supplied body parts.  Though the #USARMY Soldier was in a wheel chair during the show, they have been working with him to fit him with some new legs and in a few months they expect him to be going about New York on foot and not needing the wheel chair!

I'll be honest this #WarHero has a better attitude than I do.  I don't know if I could have kept the positive attitude after loosing my arms and legs. During the commercial I commented to my girl that his ordeal was what #Metalica wrote and sang about years ago with the Hit Song ONE.    Luckily and thankfully Medical Science is helping him and others that were injured fighting a #WarOverOil in a land far away.

I'd like to point out that the USA has the know-how and technology to limit and reduce the amount of Oil we consume and are forced to buy from the Middle East.  I feel this is a step in limiting the resources that these Countries have and are using to kill and hurt the American Soldiers.  

To put it simply: Limiting the cash flow will lessen the amount of $$$ they can spend fighting and if the USA is not dependent upon foreign oil we will become a sustainable nation once again .

To all the Soldiers that were injured in #WarsOverOil--I'm truly sorry that our Government efforts led by #RepublicanLies by #RepublicanWarMongers put you in this situation.

Natural Swimming Pool Design Information

Natural Swimming Pool

CAD by Scotty-Natural Swimming Pool Design


While creating the Families future Hemp Home.  The Girls all pointed out that they needed a Swimming Pool.
This honestly didn't cross my mind as I planned to locate the Hemp Home in a rural location that bordered on a lake or natural spring.

        Why would we need a swimming pool?

        Do they know how much energy a swimming pool uses?  We have to put up more Solar Panels to cover the electricity use.

I mentioned, "Is a traditional chlorine pool the best option?",

"Have you looked at any Natural Swimming Pools?"

Quickly answered by: "We're not swimming in no green pool !!!"

Luckily google[1] came thru and found a slew of images on Natural Swimming Pool Images


Disaster averted!!! 

The Girls love the designs and when I mentioned that it won't turn their hair yellow and dry their skin out--the unanimous mutual agreement was:

"Yes Build It !!!- Scotty"




So here are some of the suggested techniques for building a Natural Swimming Pool as used in the following Natural Swimming Pool Designs by Scotty

Design Information

  • Reserving at least 50 percent of your pool's surface area for shallow plants, either at one end or in a ring around the sides, eliminates the need for chlorine and expensive filters and pumps. You'll want to separate the swimming area of your pool and the filtration area, or plant zone (see the illustration in the image gallery).

  • The water needs to circulate continuously for the plants' roots to cleanse the pool. You also may need to aerate the water so the water organisms' oxygen needs are met.

Without adequate oxygen, your pool could become stagnant, harboring odoriferous anaerobic bacteria.

  • Besides cleaning the water and making your pool beautiful to behold, the shallow plant zone warms the water quickly and provides habitat for frogs and many invertebrates. They'll appreciate the shallow water for breeding grounds and repay the favor by eating mosquito larvae.


  • A rim within an inch of the water's surface keeps plants in their place but allows water from the swimming area to move to the plant zone for filtering, As water passes through the fibrous root structure of the plants, bacteria concentrated on the plants' roots act as a biological filter, removing contaminants and excess nutrients in the water. Decomposer organisms, also found in the plants' root zones, consume the bacteria, effectively eliminating underwater waste buildup.

  • Inside the plant zone, the water should get steadily deeper, reaching a maximum depth of 18 inches near the swimming zone. The outermost 6 inches of the plant zone will be 2 to 3 inches deep, providing a home for taller aquatic plants. Submergent and floating vegetation occupy the deeper area.[2][3][4][5][6][7] pics

I appreciate all the medicinal applications of Cannabis but what really turns my crank is the uses of the Industrial Cannabis or Industrial Hemp products: 
Food, Fuel, Building Products, etc.  I've been focusing my efforts on the Hemp + Lime mixture that some people call #Hempcrete  used in making buildings energy efficient naturally.  As an example of this great product I've made a few CAD drawings as well as posted You Tube Videos to use as an example to create an sustainable energy efficient home with Hemp: http://stlouisrenewableenergy.com/hempbuilding/industrial-hemp-building-energy-efficient-homes-naturally/
