Priority has therefore been given to a range of measures for run-off and soil erosion control. One such measure, the use of stone bunds built on natural contour lines, has been promoted and supported by governments, NGOs, extension agents and farmers for more than 25 years and is now widely used in the Sahel. The best results are often achieved when contour stone bunds are used in combination with the planting of grass and trees on the contour lines. In wetter years they help to reduce the climate-induced risk of run-off and erosion.
I suggest you read it. I know a few things. For fifty years plus I have spent at least four hours a day reading, on average, and except for what I read for entertainment, which is not very much, I have always selected books written by people with solid reputations in their particular field.
Sometimes I lived in the woods in a camper just emerging to go to the library every couple of days for months at a time, or to visit with friends or family. NEVER bought a new car in my entire life, habitually wear old jeans and flannel shirts, never paid rent more than maybe three years total, and that in short stretches while in the process of selecting the next job of buying and renovating an old house.
Worked in nukes a month or two at a stretch on shutdowns making good money, etc, so I could take it easy for months on end afterward.
All my recreational activities are self supporting, such as fishing, hunting, restoring old cars, flea marketing, etc. I have a car and a truck, currently,the two together worth maybe three thousand bucks on the used car market.
I will most likely drive both of them another five years, if I am able to drive that much longer. BEEN driving the truck fifteen years already.
I have more free time by a MILE than my attorney, my physician, or anybody else I know who works for big bucks, lol. My two one percenter sisters manage to ENJOY themselves maybe a month out of the year, when they are on vacation. Neither of them has sense enough to retire, as I see things.
Mostly taking one or two courses per semester. Went to the local community college and took almost all the courses offered in automotive technology back in the nineties. Campus is where the most attractive physically and intellectually attractive unattached women are to be found, lol, and also the best route to meeting a LOT of people via classes and social activities.
Took my degree in agriculture, which is applied biology,meaning I have as many biology courses as biology majors in their junior year.
Took extra courses in psychology, etc, to enable me to get a professional license as a teacher in my state. Went almost all the way thru nursing school in my sixties so as to better know how to look after myself and parents and other people who may need me, but dropped out when the home front situation went critical.
Lots of women there, although most of them were WAY to young to look at me, lol. I was one of only four guys out of about eighty, lol. Spend a couple of hours a day, at least, in forums such as this one, where the subject matter is primarily about critical issues such as energy, climate, etc.
Sometimes the entire day, depending on the weather and how my dear old Daddy is doing. I have said so numerous times in this forum.
If you will take the time to actually THINK about all the people you have ever known, you will realize that hermits are pretty goddamned scarce, lol.
Maybe one person out of a hundred remains voluntarily secluded to a great extreme, excepting those who are unable to get out and socialize easily, due to age, infirmity, or lack of economic resources, etc. Most of these people watch television, which provides an ersatz community for them.
The more fortunate ones among them also very often have pets, if their situation allows. I get bored VERY quickly, and it takes very little time to master a new trade or skill once you have mastered half a dozen others. I can drive better, wire better, plumb better, and weld better, etc, than a LOT of people who do these things day after day to get their living.
If you are competent in high school algebra, you can learn the fundamentals of electricity in thirty days, an hour a day, to the point that you can do any ordinary wiring such as in houses.
|Case Studies||Millions, possibly billions, of people have come to believe what is essentially a conspiracy theory, generating fear and misunderstanding about a whole class of technologies on an unprecedentedly global scale.|
Passing allowed on broken lines, do not pass on solid yellow lines, etc. You can learn to drive a big truck in four weeks at school, but I learned that as kid on the farm, lol. Quit tv cold turkey back around or so. Since then I average maybe ten hours a year watching tv. That time at social functions such as friends hold for the Kentucky Derby, Superbowl, etc.
Finally gave up my last university student ID four or five years ago. When I had it, I could read a lot of serious stuff online.
If I want to, I can go thru your comment line by line, and point out the times you have contradicted yourself, which at first glance averages about once every two or three lines. Would you like me to do so? If you live in a nice house in a city where the real estate market is hot, your house is probably worth more than everything I own combined.
But I have never had to work for money more than half the time, and usually a lot less than half, on an annual basis. A lack of evidence is not evidence, lol.is and in to a was not you i of it the be he his but for are this that by on at they with which she or from had we will have an what been one if would who has her.
