THE BIG PICTURE
Our plan is quite simple. We are, through our efforts, projects, business models, and training events teaching people how to grow their own food and live WITHOUT MONEY in a more localized post petroleum world. Part of the plan is to offer an alternative to air-travel as western economies are contracting and geo-political tensions increase. The pay-for-every-aspect-of-your-life paradigm is coming to an end and one way or another people will have to deal with those changes. Our project is about making that transition fun, easy, and empowering. The more people that, join, contribute, and pass on what they learn is the better for all of us. Please read more below.

THE SOLARC PROJECT
Our converging projects have key components that that when combined culminate in a industry we can guarantee without a doubt will be booming in the very near future.
1.Build large scale off the grid boats which are self powered out of discarded materials and liquid rubber.
2. Building man made islands that power themselves and produce food for their inhabitants.
3.Cheaply custom building of the above for customers worldwide.
4.The conversion of shipping container freighters into hotel/farms for large groups of travelers as an alternative to air travel resulting in transatlantic voyages from Europe to the Caribbean beginning in Early 2015
5.The building and instruction of earthship constructions around the world.
PLEASE READ OUR INITIAL PROPOSAL OVERVIEW
Transatlantic Tanker hotel/permaculture farms to replace air travel
As the global economy moves faster into full collapse in the addition to geopolitical turmoil in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, along with the end of the USA petrol dollar as the world currency, a unique and extremely profitable opportunity has been created.
As energy conflicts intensify and the petrodollar is dethroned as the defacto global currency along with the global debt and derivative bubbles, shortly inflation and global depression will arise and oil prices will dramatically increase around the world eventually making air travel cost prohibitive to most travelers as airlines have no choice but to increase the prices of flights to match ever soaring costs.
The last issue is that of the Baltic Dry Index(the measure of freight boat shipped cargo around the world). As the demand for consumer products declines due to financial contraction world wide, large freighter shipping is in sharp decline to the point that hundreds of thousands if not millions of huge cargo ships are being rendered useless and are sitting idle in shipyards around the world and the companies that own and operate them are suffering huge losses. Many are beginning to go bankrupt as a result of the collapsing economy.
Our project proposes an innovative and extremely lucrative solution for all involved:
Transatlantic Tanker Hotel/Permaculture Farms to replace Air Travel.
We would like to take existing freight ships and combine a number of sustainable yet innovative processes and techniques to create a service that would potentially replace air travel.
These processes and techniques include:
Up cycling of shipping containers into living and other types of spaces
Alternate energy techniques
Greywater Blackwater processing
Use of compost as heat sources for water and spaces
Sensible waste and sewage management
Conversion of freighters to wind and alternate energy
These and other techniques can be implemented extremely quickly utilizing the talents of experts in these various fields and the appropriate work crew numbers for construction. It is conceivable that a small test run could be made a few months after initial retrograding commences.
This brief proposal will not go deep into specifics of security, extra lifeboat issues, and the logistics of running such an endeavor at this point, but all of these things have been considered and planned for. We look forward to laying those plans out once we have organized the appropriate participants in this endeavor.
This form of travel would contrast greatly from what currently exists in as voyagers would not only have comfortable accommodations for the trip would would also be offered workshops in various sustainable practices such as growing food, alternate energy, earth building and the like.
The intention would be to conduct the trips very much the way we conduct various workshops in alternate sustainability where attendees can either participate or just relax and socialize on their 6 day voyage.
We will of course offer 3 meals per day and various entertainment(live music, parties, get togethers and movies) each night of the voyage.
In closing this short overview, we will mention that a one way ticket could go for 1000 euros. A standard cargo freighter modified correctly as mentioned about could easily accommodate 1000 travelers. This would result in 1 million euros per trip minus 40 percent in operating costs per trip roughly.
Thank you for reading this brief outline and I look forward to your input, suggestions, and possibly working with you on this project shortly.
