A Billion Trees: NPV
A large quantity of new tree growth will help change the global warming crisis. There is simply no other way to soak up carbon dioxide in our world except from trees. This novel management approaches that have not previously been considered is founded on land tenure and micro finance for women farmers. The Net Present Value (NPV) of a tree is $1.49 for 25 years
MICRO FINANCE MISSION:
Our mission is to be the best in the world in micro hydro electric and water resource management: by evolving innovative damless hydroelectric and water transfer technology. We create Today’s Tall Tree Nurseries to support Micro Finance for women farmers and their families using the Carbon Tax Fund, a new form of foreign aid. We export Mechanization into Africa for more productive agriculture.
Inequality has become the obsession of the age. The U.S. president ran for re-election against it in 2012 and won. The new pope wrote his first encyclical against it. The argument in this most recent book of William Watson, The Inequality Trap: Fighting Capitalism Instead of Poverty is that this preoccupation with inequality is an error and a trap. It is an error because inequality, unlike poverty, is not the problem that it is so widely presumed to be. Inequality can be good, it can be bad, and it can be neither good nor bad but benign. Benign inequality is the type where the rich pull ahead, or the poor fall behind, via a process that is based on some sort of choice or luck that, in itself, doesn’t harm anyone. It would be a mistake to adopt, a single perspective or policy for inequality at large.
Inequality is also a trap — not a trap anyone has set for us but one of our own making — because concern with it leads us to focus on the top end of the income distribution when our preoccupation should instead be the bottom, where the bulk of human misery almost certainly resides. A deeper and more dangerous inequality trap, however, is that obsession with it may cause poor and non-poor alike to doubt capitalism.
If ever poverty is finally eradicated from this Earth, it is hard to believe some variant of free, private enterprise will not be involved. Capitalism does generate inequality — that is how it works — but by unrelentingly expanding what is possible in terms of living standards, it also enables people to pull themselves up from poverty. And by reducing the necessary sacrifice, it makes the non-poor more willing to help: the richer I am, the less of my income I need give up in order to help you. But if we respond to growing inequality by increasingly fighting capitalism, our false enemy, rather than poverty, our true enemy, we may end up with more of both inequality and poverty and risk at least partly undoing the good accrued during the past.
The current global furor over inequality is fueled in large part by the assumption that all inequality is bad. It isn’t. There is both good and bad inequality. Good inequality occurs when the economic virtues are rewarded: thrift, industry, invention, innovation, initiative, and so on.
Bad inequality occurs when people prosper from morally dubious or even illegal actions or from some unfair advantage they have contrived for themselves or conspired with others, often through governments, to acquire. There is also inequality that is neutral, benign. Neither intrinsically good nor bad, it arises as a by-product of events most of us find unobjectionable, such as changing birthrates, marriage patterns, or divorce laws.
To complicate things, there is also the view that good inequality carried too far can itself be bad, that if rich people become too rich, even as a result of otherwise admirable behavior, that can be bad for the rest of us, for society as a whole, and therefore ultimately even for them, too.
Occupy Wall Street participants focus on the unequal distribution of wealth
And of course the pressing practical question is, what do we do about it? Policies should focus on opportunity and foster greater economic mobility for individuals.
Watson is generally skeptical of government’s ability to remedy either inequality or poverty, but suggests that things like direct redistribution of wealth can sometimes alleviate poverty. Watson thinks governments have a role to play in aiding the poor’s access to job and skills training (and things like drug treatment facilities), but is very skeptical of government doing anything more than providing the funding that the poor can use for private services; governments, he writes, generally do a bad job at providing those services directly.
There are several ways to alleviate poverty to foster how to give the poor good “human capital” training, and how to direct wealth transfer that prevents people from living below a certain standard.
- Five governments in East Africa changed Africa’s economic landscape by launching the East African Community (EAC) Common Market. This economic cooperative will break barriers and allow the free movement of goods, labor, services and capital among the member countries. The five member countries (Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda) have established an inter-governmental economic cooperative with a combined GDP of $73 billion.
- It currently costs about $100 per ton to store C02 underground—several times the cost of storing it in trees at the carbon tax subsidy of $15/ton in underdeveloped countries, where there is usually a lot of rain and sun and labor costs are low.
Our plan is to introduce tree nurseries in East Africa where each tree will absorb an equivalent of carbon emissions over its lifetime of 50 years at the rate of $15/ton. Each fruit, nut or fodder tree will be managed by women farmers and their family on leased land, who will also be supported with micro finance from Living Water Micro Finance Inc.
The initial funding will come from the Carbon Tax Fund through the World Bank and their partner, Global Affairs Canada at the net present value (NPV) of $1.49/ tree. This support will make it possible to build many tree nurseries after the first prototype along with an irrigation system based on the HUG.
Since depleted soils and fertilization are major problem in many of these countries, the tree nursery is supported by a rabbit fish farm that also raises grasscutters. The tree nursery plants fodder trees in between the fruit and nut trees, which are nitrogen-fixing, in order to add fertilizer. These same fodder trees support livestock from their leaves.
The 1.5 acre rabbit fish farm adds the remaining fertilizer required from the nutrients of the irrigated water flowing from a moat of catfish and tilapia surrounding the rabbit farm. The rabbit poo is raked up and used as food for the fish. The larvae from black soldier flies that feed on the rabbit entrails and heads are the main fish food along with floating plants. Rabbit urine is also a form of fertilization when added to compost.
Please Note: another calculation of NPV of fruit trees living for 25 years = $0.49/tree plus $1.00/tree for maintenance: $1.49/tree. (Fruit trees are productive for 25 years and then are replaced.)
Small Farms supported by micro finance: 1.5 acre: 500 fruit, nut and foliage trees/farm:
- Carbon Tax Fund Support: $2.59/tree over the expected lifetime of 50 years
- The cost of a HUG Irrigation System: $7,000,000
- 8,100 acres to support 5,400 farms x 500 x $2.59 (NPV) = $7,000,000
- Additional cost of providing micro irrigation on each of these 5,400 farms: $3,000,000
- Trees required to support Irrigation System & Tree Nursery: $7,000,000/$2.59 = 2,700,000
- The carbon tax fund penalizes polluting companies at the rate of $15/ton of carbon dioxide emissions: this translates into 5.79 trees required to absorb one ton of carbon dioxide emissions over 50 years.
- One billion trees will absorb 173,000,000 tons of CO2 emissions over the lifetime of the trees.
A Billion Trees
A billion tree seedlings can be developed on land that is owned or leased and protected by women farmers who are supported in turn with micro finance on their farms which can number up to two million 1.5 acre farms (500 trees/farm x 2,000,000 farms).
There is another three-fold reason to support this project:
- The trees will serve a double purpose of foliage for farm animals, fruit and nuts, which will offset any impending famine. The cost of dealing with an impending famine before it happens is a fraction of what it costs to feed a starving population when it does happen.
- The root system of trees taps into the deeper water resources during times of drought. The onset of desertification which results in loss of potential fertile land can be stopped. Fodder trees, which are planted in between the nut and fruit trees, add nitrogen-fixing to the soil, which serves to replenish depleted soils. New fertilizing methods from our eco system of rabbits and fish can be introduced at a low cost.
- The carbon tax fund will be invested in proper irrigation, which will guarantee the end of famine even through a severe drought. The carbon tax system will finally have a more purposeful use for their exorbitant fund.
The final phase of the project involves the introduction of electricity from the HUG Energy System. This part of the project is self-sustaining. Electricity will serve to support a fur industry for value added products:
- fur hats, coats or trotters, scarves
- shaved hair to add softness to textiles
- Soft Skins for gloves, wallets
- Trimming for night gowns and for gloves
- Loose hair would be stuck together with shellac and made into felt for hats
Every country is afraid of losing its competitive edge by taking on more environmental regulations than its competitors. It will take time to phase in more sustainable energy systems: coal plants are United States’ top source of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, the primary cause of global warming. A typical coal plant generates 3.5 million tons of CO2 per year.
FIVE coal-fired power plants
In order to cancel the damage done by FIVE coal-fired power plants, which may continue for 10 to 15 years, a typical coal plant generates 35 million tons of CO2 emissions for 10 years or 52.5 million tons for 15 years.
New Trees are the only solution to soaking up Carbon Dioxide:
Our Mission: to help solve the problem of carbon dioxide build up in the world by growing and managing mature forests of foliage, fruit and nut trees that eventually are used in lumber — not firewood. The Carbon Tax Fund supports a Micro finance initiative to support women farmers and their families who will nurture these trees over their lifetime. The Net Present Value of each tree is $2.59/year
Let us analyze the average of ten polluting power plant: 20 million tons/year. In 10- 15 years it will be polluting at the rate of 200 (20 x 10 years) to 300 (20 x 15 years) million tons/year. During the same period of time our agroforest will soak up: 1.09 billion to 1.5 billion tons CO2 emissions. That translates into allowing 5 to 5.5 polluting power plants in the United States to adjust to more sustainable power systems over 10 – 15 years. We can identify ten landscapes for our agroforest efforts, which will address 50 to 55 polluting power plants.
Agroforestry could help solve Climate Change.

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!
Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is a relationship with God, your Creator, in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.
HOW DO WE KNOW THIS?
Some Christian disciples use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress.
2. COMPLETE SENSE OF PEACE?
After you have been delivered from evil influences, you will have a definite physical experience of a complete sense of peace.
Once you experience a physical sense of peace because of deliverance, you know that you will be healed. This helps you build up your faith, which is very crucial: No faith! No healing!
Some Christian disciples have the gift of healing. Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.
THE WHOLE FAMILY BENEFITS
In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family. The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ. No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.
God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions shows a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17 (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE.
The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.
Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.
HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?
Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth.
Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.
This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.
He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical sense of peace.
DREAMS AND VISIONS
God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart. God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?
- Christians don’t shout, “I live a clean life!” Christians whisper “I feel lost, but now God found me and God forgives me.”
- Christians don’t speak with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
- Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they try to be strong because they need strength.
- Christians don’t brag about success, but they admit that they fail and they need God to clean the mess.
- Christians don’t claim to be perfect, but God still believes in them.
- Christians still feel the sting of pain. They have their share of headaches but they still call upon His Name.
- Christians are not holier than others. They are simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.
Christianity on a Table Napkin:
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will begin. “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.” Luke 1: 49
Are we not like Barabbas who was justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”? And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost, like you.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool”. Isaiah 1:18
You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to a Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading a short biography of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising. He will defend you from attacks of the enemy when you ask Him.
