|East Africa Drought Mitigation Project:|
The EADM project is designed to both
demonstrate ground-based cloud enhancement technology by reducing
specific drought metrics over a 10 year period. The specific
drought metrics include;
- Average rainfall
- Average atmospheric temprature
- Average relative humidity
The targeted regions include;
- Kenya (Eastern regions)
- Sudan (South eastern quadrant)
- Ethiopia (Southern regions)
- Tanzania (Northern regions)
Methods and means;
- Ground based cloud enhancement
- Fast evolution of existing plant echosystems
- Tribal sponsorship
- Extensive public memes campagin.
The EADM project will require a series of key
milestones and tasks. The current task list includes;
1. Accessing local support and opposition.
2. Build local support.
3. Obtaining appropriate land leases.
4. Creating local manufacturing, research and development facilities.
5. Attracting necessary engineering, administrative and diplomatic staff.
6. Design and rendering of specific project construction services.
7. Obtain key construction materials.
8. Construction of demo towers.
9. Assessment of effectiveness.
10. Building international support through UN and regional associations.
- Land $3-6 million
- Facilities $2-4 million
- Staff salaries & travel $10-15 million
- 200ft tower construction $12-20 million
- 400ft tower construction $20-35 million
Fund raising letter:
Each day 11-year-old Tambura must walk past her empty local village school to collect water for her family. She is quick to smile, and she loves to tell silly jokes to friends. The school yard used to be filled with laughing and playing children, but these days it's quiet and few children are present. Tambura and her little brothers and sisters must struggle, for hours, lugging large cans of water home for cooking and washing. She still remembers the cool water that flowed from her village well when she was a toddler. Climate change, a phenomena that she can hardly understand, has increasingly led to long periods of drought, drying up the local aquifer and family wells.
She dreams of being a nurse or a teacher, but there is a good chance that she will never realize her dream, growing up with limited education and the persistent sickening parasites that she is forced to consume from the river water. She has already lost two sisters to diarrhea and Guinea worms.
As the long droughts and creeping desertification overtakes her life like a creeping vine, there is also much political unrest growing in the region. Desperate young men are hearing the angry words of those who see violence as their only hope.
Wow! that's so sad, but what can we do about it? We have already worked hard to clean up our air and water pollution to fight climate change. We recycle and drive hybrid cars. We are good people who care about Tambura's future. What more can we do to bring back the life-giving rains and chart a more hopeful future for Tambura and her village?
There is a way. For years GSE has been developing a technology that will allow cool coastal waters to be misted up to clouds. These clouds are life-giving for small villages and subsistence farmers around the region. These clouds bring relief from the blistering heat, and they bring life-giving rain. The east coast of sub-Saharan Africa is the warm and windy Indian ocean. GSE through the non-profit INDRA project has developed a plan that will over a decade increase regional rainfall by natural desalination of warm waters from the Indian ocean and misting millions of gallons of water each day to generate clouds.
Although it sounds fantastic, the phenomena of ground-based cloud formation is well known at power plants and large industrial concerns through cooling towers, sometimes as tall as a 30 story building. Due to public complaints, these cooling towers are engineered to minimize the natural desalination and cloud formation that comes from cooling vast amounts of hot water from industrial processes.
The INDRA plan is to build these same types of towers, using local labor and materials, that are engineered to maximize cloud formation.
Of course, each of these towers will cost millions to construct, and most of the government's, [Somalia, Sudan, Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania], in this region don't have the funds. Yet our plan is to purchase large plots of coastal land, where we will construct demonstration projects that will begin to bring relief to this region.
This sounds too good to be true, yet deep down you know it is a rational response to a growing problem. By donating the cost of one dinner at Outback or the Olive Garden, you could help millions of children like Tambura. True, this a complicated proposal that will take years to develop, but climate change, and cleaner air also took decades.As a donor to this project, you will be a friend of INDRA. You can also donate your time by visiting the project site as an honored guest. As a thank you for donations of over $50 USD, we will send you and INDRA project T-shirt, and keep you informed with regular updates.
