Require south-facing roofs Printer Friendly Version
I'd like to see legislation to require all new home/apartment/townhouse/commercial developments to have a certain percentage of south facing wall or roof area. It's for solar developement but the solar equipment is not required. The market place will one day soon demand that that area be used to collect energy and people will respond.
Reward: The end of the culdesac and more networked streets with added purpose

Home Richter Scale Printer Friendly Version
We all have seen the mini-weather stations, but we could add a mini-Richter scale for even more fun, reporting your local area's total over all conditions when you call the reporting stations. This data would be collected and help grow an understanding of future predictions of earth quakes everywhere!
Reward: A weather station! And toll free numbers to report tremors!

Free Clean Energy from Garbage/Trash/Biomatter Printer Friendly Version
Garbage/trash dumps and also biomatter from farms etc. create heat in large dumped volumes. If a water contaner were to be placed into the center of the mound of trash or bio matter or coils of piping were placed in the center of the rotting mass, hot water could be produced for washing, or house heating for poor populations living nearby.
Reward: Free for the greater good on the condition that it's acknowledged Greg Jones is the originator of the idea.
