Geoff Lawton has developed yet another timely video featuring a greenhouse in British Columbia that’s using climate battery technology to heat a large greenhouse. Interestingly the greenhouse incorporates an insulated mass on the north wall to conserve heat. In the model we’re developing at Imani, we use six 55 gallon drums filled with water to store the heat released by the solar heated floor. The ideas are tantalizing in a time when our reliance on fossil fuels is about to end, one way or another. Will the end be a horrible disaster because we haven’t prepared for it, or a gradual transition based on a carefully thought through plan. The choice is ours, and yours.
