Top Lit Updraft Wood Cook Stove

Ken Miller, tin-can-ologist, shows off his top lit updraft stove. Made from a one gallon paint can and a couple of tin cans, he used a tiny amount of wood to boil some water.
You light the fire on top of the fuel and then put your heat riser on top. Smokeless.
Better than a rocket stove in that it is easier to save your fuel. And you don't have to keep feeding in the wood.
This is an example of a bio-char stove. It works by burning only the volatile gases from the wood, and turning the cellulose parts of the wood into bio-char (charcoal). This is great for the environment, because you produce quite low amounts of CO2; and great for farms, because you can crush the leftover biochar and add it to soil to make huge improvements in soil productivity.

The God Within: Exposing The False Philosophy Of Modern Science

This mini-documentary by Mike Adams the Health Ranger exposes the false philosophy underpinning most of modern science. It explains why science is rooted in evil and destruction while harming life on our planet: GMOs, vaccines, psychiatric drugs, nuclear weapons -- they've all been pursued and promoted under the brand of "science." And yet, shockingly, modern scientists do not believe human beings are conscious beings. They claim we are all just "biological robots" which provides the philosophical pretext for genocide.

What The Bleep Do We Know ?!

'What The Bleep Do We Know?!' is a radical departure from convention. It demands a freedom of view and greatness of thought so far unknown, indeed, not even dreamed of since Copernicus. It's a documentary. It's a story. It's mind-blowing special effects. This film plunges you into a world where quantum uncertainty is demonstrated - where neurological processes, and perceptual shifts are engaged and lived by its protagonist - where everything is alive, and reality is changed by every thought.

First Earth: Uncompromising Ecological Architecture

First Earth is a documentary about the movement towards a massive paradigm shift for shelter -- building healthy houses in the old ways, out of the very earth itself, and living together like in the old days, by recreating villages. An audiovisual manifesto filmed over the course of 4 years and 4 continents, First Earth makes the case that earthen homes are the healthiest housing in the world; and that since it still takes a village to raise a healthy child, it is incumbent upon us to transform our suburban sprawl into eco-villages, a new North American dream.
