Greta Thunberg was in Denver, October 2019 and has great energy with her urgency to make changes with the status quo before it’s too late. In front of a large rally at Civic Center Park, Greta said, “This is the hope — the people.”
The people, need to realize, we can solve the climate crisis working together implementing the best systems to be fossil free. Fossil fuel industry executives, and some world leaders are spending millions on propaganda denying the facts/science because they don’t want to lose their cash flow, and lifestyles. It’s up to the people to provide solutions through innovation. If necessary civil disobedience on a large scale.
Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo submitted a formal notice November 2019 to the United Nations that the United States of America is withdrawing from the Paris Climate accord due to an “unfair economic burden” to the U.S. economy. I disagree with Mr. Pompeo. In December 2019 at the Climate Change Conference in Madrid, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the world’s efforts to stop climate change have been “utterly inadequate” so far and there is a danger global warming could pass the “point of no return.” I agree with Mr. Guterres and one of many reasons for ET Squared’s urgency.
Somini Sengupta of the New York Times wrote an article, November 2019 about the Emissions Gap Report and how countries are doing nothing. The two biggest polluters China and the United States increased their emissions last year. The article was very clear, it’s urgent, the time is now to make a difference in the way we do things instead of doing nothing before it’s too late.
We at ET Squared are focused in on how to change the current systems required when building developments. Developments must be sustainable for the life of the dwelling and neighborhood in which it resides. The Energy Oasis Model can easily be replicated anywhere in the world. The design phase is critical when joining systems together while creating a net-zero development. Each development site is different, being able to chose the best systems for that specific site is what we are implementing.
The Sunnyside Energy Oasis at 47th & Jason in the Sunnyside neighborhood, one of the oldest in Denver, will be a twenty-story urban farm in the middle of a food desert just west of Denver’s Gold Line and the old Denver Post site. The Sunnyside Energy Oasis is a net-zero development which replaces decaying infrastructure, while using waste streams, wind, and solar as resources all within walking distance to the 41st & Fox light rail station. The Sunnyside Energy Oasis is our way of doing what we can to ensure our grandchildren’s environmental future.
In 2002 Engineered Tools & Technologies was created due to our awareness for urgency to formulate solutions to mitigate climate change and we hope we can do it before it’s too late. ET Squared is a low budget self-funded company who is currently testing our patents/technologies to prove them reliable.
