JOURNAL

The Green Campus Journal chronicles important updates in the development of our Green Camps, our regenerative programs such as The Big Green Machine, Reforest Festival & The World Exchange. Members can also write articles about what they feel is important for serving nature too. Please get in touch if you'd like to contribute.

Here I tell the story of the people and processes that won the final debate of the 200th aniversary of The Oxford Union on the motion: This House Would Go Vegan. The effort was intended to shine a light on the arguments of Dr. Sailesh Rao and Gerard Wedderburn-Bisshop that insist we must include the Carbon opportunity Cost of deforestation, the carbon that can not be sequestered by forests that are cut down, in the IPCC and therefore national carbon accounting conventions. Including COC in Carbon accounting conventions shows that livestock is responsible for 87% of Global Temperature Change Potential and focusing on fossil fuels is actually speeding up climate change. The event allowed us to meet researchers at Oxford who argue for and against the position and yet we continue our work to find written arguments against the position which was won on the day. We are very Grateful to The Oxford Union for supporting this event and allowing us to use it to shine a light into this all important place. The story follows:

Challenging The Orthodoxy: Is Excluding Carbon Opportunity Cost (COC) from IPCC and therefore National Carbon Accounting fair or lawful?

Including COC in Carbon Accounting conventions shows livestock = 87% of Global Temperature Change Potential. We debated this at The Oxford Union and drew out those who can help our legal case to challenge the lawfulness of present policy. Thank you all who have helped begin this unfolding story!

Sharrow Marine Toroidal Props & Infinite Range Silent Yachts & Friends

Here details an overview of efforts to bring Sharrow Marine's Toroidal Propellers to Silent Yachts, a luxury solar powered yacht design and manufacture yacht company at their e-foil riders event in Mallorca in June 20023. Sharrow's props boast 80% noise reduction and 48% fuel efficiency benefits while Silent Yachts demonstrate infinite range. My effort was to see if I could pay for a custom Sharrow Marine prop for the Silent Yachts and thus extend the latitudes where their incredible solar power train is viable in order to secure a brokerage for these extended markets and of course for these revolutionary propellers.

No matter how little you eat and how much you exercize you will not loose body fat if there is too much insulin present. Insulin levels are many times their normal healthy levels due to the environment we live in and thus we become hugely insulin insensitive which causes many health problems and makes losing weight impossible. Here are some resources about the phenomenon and how to remedy this in a healthy vegan way!

How to beat Insulin Insensitivity on a Vegan Diet

No matter how little you eat and how much you exercize you will not loose body fat and the resultant inflammation if there is too much insulin present. Remedy this:

Functional Medical Resources

Here are a list of various functional medical organisations and documentary films about their work that, based on my experience, are much more successful schools of medicine for dealing with degenerative disease: cancer, diabetes, heart disease, skin disorders, auto-immune disorders etc. than aleopathic medicine (mainstream medicine). Please review the films, the reviews from some of the world's leading doctors and physicians and see for yourself. NB: we still love the mainstream trauma wards and emergency response teams and support them fully!

Green Camp One | Riverwoods Weekend

Herwith a summary of my experience of our renewed Green Camp Weekends: From screening Riverwoods at Chichester Cathedral to local interest conservation groups abandoned of their posts, to our divine Yin Yoga, meditation and Psycological fitness retreat at Green Camp Ellanore with Alex Rogers and the gang. Lots of opportunities for good are coming forth from all of this.

Hi Campers, this is an update about the very slow but steady progress with the opensource redesign of The Green Machine with resources where you can follow along.

Green Machine Opensource Update

We are now working with the Duet 3D opensource CNC Electronics Community & Opensource Lily Pellet Extruder by Recycl3DPrint to totally redesign the CNC electronics hardware for The Green Machine so it can manage the industrial (yet affordable) output of the Lily Pellet extruder. Follow along here!

Herewith an update about development of the low cost, large format, pellet based, bio-composite additive manufacturing platform to print The Green Camp System.

Manufacture Update - August 2021

Things have been incredibly hard for these last few months. I am still encountering many many failures but the net result is progress in the direction that I am working towards and hopefully soon, when we fix these last few failed parts, we will be where we want to be.

More panel progress

I am happy to say that after five years of trying, I’ve finally managed to produce a very strong, full scale outdoor construction panel made from our 100%: non-toxic, plant-based, recyclable, biodegradable biocomposites. Thanks to allthe supporters of our crowdfunding campaign I was able to put together “The Green manufacture System (a large format 3-D printer) and test various different methods for extruding the biomaterials that we have developed with our sponsors.

Pristine areas in the Amazon and Siberia may expand with animal reintroductions, scientists say.

Just 3% of world’s ecosystems remain intact, study suggests

The researchers suggest reintroducing a small number of important species to some damaged areas, such as elephants or wolves – a move that could restore up to 20% of the world’s land to ecological intactness. Pristine areas in the Amazon and Siberia may expand with animal reintroductions, scientists say.

Happy Easter with news of efforts to bring Reforest Fest to the UK, UN Restoration Festival online development & more

We have been working with Green Pop Foundation Tree-E-O, Misha Tesdale, on plans to bring their incredible reforest festival to the UK! Green Pop's Reforest Festival is an environmental action gathering combining practical ecosystem restoration work like tree-planting, with a full line-up of workshops, talks and activities from sustainability experts. The evenings are filled with campfire sessions, storytelling and music from some of South Africa and the Worlds finest musicians, producers, artists and thought leaders. Here's a short video about the 2019 festival.

The Green Campus Business model grew out of Arundel Forest Garden where we were trying to work out how to live as harmlessly as possible. Check out this article for links to the original Facebook groups with loads of pics and videos of starting that forest Garden and the first Green Camp in Arundel Forest Garden: Arundel Green Camp

The History of Green Camp

How the business model for Green Campus came out of trying to live in harmony with nature at Arundel Forest Garden.

A plant-based diet in conjunction with cholesterol-reducing medication eliminated progression of coronary artery disease over a 12-year period in patients with triple-vessel disease.
