Learning to live with low energies
In a world where energy is fishing at both ends, it will be scarce and expensive.
On the one hand, extraction becomes more and more difficult and costs more and more energy. On the other hand, its use causes the emission of very harmful gases for the planet.
Human and animal energy will become the key to our future civilization.
Are we going back to the methods of the pre-industrial era? No, because the knowledge and knowledge acquired over the past century has enabled us to build a more reliable and more respectful world of nature while producing goods and services with much less energy.
We will rediscover what nature has taken millions of years to create.
Thus, nature never leaves the ground bare, exposed to the sun and bad weather. The vegetable matter must return to the ground to be decomposed and serve as food for new plants. The animals that live in the earth are those who do all the chemical work that our manufacturers do not know how to control. Earthworms are great plowmen if the plowshare does not blow up their habitat.
The main fuel of a permaculture hillock is the sun.
Water from the rain falling on the roofs of buildings will be stored in height and distributed by gravitation.
The water from a potential well will be pumped by a wind turbine to be transferred to elevated tanks.
In winter, we will use the heat released by the hens to warm our seedlings.
Each function must be studied to never require another energy than that constantly available in nature.
