Community groups on Long Island NY collaborated to produce a graveyard tour. "Widows" in Victorian dress guided us to tombstones of interesting historical people where actors portrayed them.The last actor, dressed as a Victorian undertaker, told us about burial customs at that time, and showed us photographs of dead people with their families, as if they were alive.We then had afternoon tea in the church- all quite an experience.
Desalination technology is not new, but it uses high-power pumps and is notoriously energy-intensive (and therefore expensive). The solar-microgrid system that GivePower has created, however, can produce almost 20,000 gallons of fresh drinking water each day. It relies on Tesla batteries for energy storage, and it uses two parallel pumps so that the system can run at all times, even if one pump requires maintenance. www.businessinsider.com/solar-powered-device-turns-salt-water-into-fresh-drinking-water-2019-7
Sydney Water is in Martin Pace Sydney today and there are queues lining up to get a free drought resistant plant. It's a promotion aimed at making Sydney siders aware that we are in drought and need to conserve water. One way is to choose drought tolerant plants.
