It’s Climate Strike today

Posted 25 March 2022 by Eva Wissenz.

The Lytefire 4 construction guide is at 5€ instead of 99€ for 24 hours (https://lytefire.com/diy-climate-strike). With it, you can build yourself a solar concentrator to cook, purify water, fry, roast in a pan. We are soon opening a forum for builders providing feedback, updates, for a community to build up.

A community complementing everything that exists already with a specific tool generating enough heat to process food and make a bit of money with it. It’s starting in France and in Kenya.

The very first version of the Lytefire was created a long time ago in a backyard in Canada. We continue the good work. We do our best. But environmental destruction is accelerating everywhere. We must spread.

When is this ending?

This way to not honor what we have. This way of seeing enemies. To dominate. Good cop. Bad cop. This is good, this is bad therefore we can destroy it. And then what? Who will be right in the end? Which country will be the last one surviving in a devastated nature? Who has ever had money for breakfast? Who has ever loaded his pockets with money when it’s time to leave this world? How long will it take for major decisions to be made by citizens and governments to finally engage in a caring approach: children, elders, men and women, animals, plants, rivers, bedstones, oceans, mountains, sand beaches, flat countryside and spectacular rain forests, blue sky and pristine lakes.

When do we start to care?

The IEA (International Energy Agency) stated 9 months ago that we can have no more new oil, gas and coal facilities at all if we’re going to have any chance to stay below 1.5°C global warming.

The 2d IPCC report was released last month and we still don’t talk about it, not enough (read it). The key words of this massive report are vulnerability and adaptation. The scientists are also establishing a clear link between climate change and social justice.

At our level, what can we do?

This is everything we are about. And we know that the energy we use and the way we organize our lives around that is a key question.

Lytefire is a caring tech for us to adapt to this sad reality. The Lytefire 4 oven construction guide is at 5€ for 24 hours. https://lytefire.com/diy-climate-strike
