The Earth Year Project
At Earth Year Project, our mission is to minimize extensive loss of human, natural resources and financial resources due to THE HEAT and weather and to overcome overwhelming world health challenges due to rapidly increasing heat and climate change in fun ways!
We have been a problem solving organization since 1987, We have a proven track record of successful campaigns and initiatives that have helped to improve numerous difficult challenges in a variety of fields focusing on the environment.
Our team is made up of passionate and dedicated individuals who are committed to solving social challenges. We have experts in the fields of sustainability, ecology, and conservation who work tirelessly to further our mission.
Here are some notes on the Earth Year Project.
First why. It is getting hotter quicker than any current models show, for many reasons. Great losses in all areas of modern life are now on the horizon.
Common sense steps, if quickly implemented, can postpone and minimize this potential disaster.
We spent countless hours and our own personal funds to study, research, and develope solutions that any American and others can do to help. Things that SAVE YOU MONEY on gas, health costs and many other areas. Easy money saving common sense solutions that help the planet and your pocket book.
Our past accomplishments with similar but smaller projects and programs make us confident in our qualifications. We will make a difference in this important area.
Who we are not. We are not rules, regulations and restrictions. We are people hoping to provide up to date true accurate information that people can use in their daily lives. Information that provides simple solutions that all Americans can live with and at the same time keep dollars in their pockets that they are now spending.
We are not red or blue. There are no red or blue tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, droughts, rivers, air, water, wilderness, gas or heat. There is neither red or blue, all there is is me and you.
More information will be coming soon
The heat war is coming! Weather, crops, food and energy costs are unpredictable.
Heat melts ice, Ice makes weather, jet streams, ocean currents, etc.. Weather, waters crops. No rain, no crops! Rapid,rapid change is in our near future. Not fifty years, but in ten to fifteen years. Large migrations from the equator have already started, THE HEAT is already affecting us in many ways. In ten to fifteen years the weather patterns will be completely different. This makes agriculture all over the whole world unpredictable. Low yield and crop losses will result in less planting to begin with, leading to massive food shortages.
So many simple things that can be done today by all of us are not being done. We are creatures of habit, Slow to change.
In only eighteen months from now gas may be as much as $3 to $4 higher a gallon. Gas may be $7 to $10 a gallon. This will be a huge blow to our economy and destroy the pocket books of many pick up truck drivers.
No matter what party is in office, the price spike is coming, It may be in fifteen months from now or it may be tomorrow. It is not coming from the government but from the petroleum producers. They control it all.
Somehow, have we put our future in the hands of the oil companies? Sadly, it seems we have.
The reason for the heat and simple, working solutions are not being discussed. Our solutions to the challenge won't crimp your lifestyle, it will keep $ in your pocket and can be fun and effective. Greatly needed.
The smarter you are the sooner you will act. It is already too late to stop THE HEAT! we can still take simple steps now that can postpone and minimize THE HEAT!
We will continually be adding information to this site over the next month to answer all your questions about this project, past projects and give more information about our organization.
Once we used the term "deep in the forest" but now there is no deep forest. Only forest and soon it will be gone as well as our fish.
We've just had the hottest eight years in the world's history.
We are experiencing massive insurance premiums.
In the last 100 years we have lost 50% of our birds.
In 1970 south Florida averaged 8 days over 105* - now 50 days over 105* in 2022.
In the next two years, gas prices may rise $5-$8 per gallon (pick up truck drivers?).
Sadly, we are being deceived by the powers that be, whether accidentally or on purpose. The reasons for our heating are much simpler than the complex explanations you have been receiving. Our up to date accurate information is no puzzle. It is a treasure map we can use to enrich ourselves and at the same time clean up the environment with minimum cost. We look forward to you reading, understanding, enjoying and capitalizing on this new critical information.
Many products are harmful to the environment and contribute to pollution. Earth Year Project promotes eco-friendly products and encourages consumers to make sustainable choices.
Conservation is one of the best ways to keep up with inflation.
Conservation is the key to stability.
Common sense conservation is the opposite of waste.
Conservation is an insurance policy on our future finances, health and happiness.
Common sense conservation creates constructive consistent controlled change that puts dollars in your pockets, cleaner air and water for our good health.
ChattART has been a charitable non-profit organization interested in solving community challenges. We have worked with state, federal and local governments to solve many social problems. We were sponsors of C.E.E.D.'s, the Solutions Group, and the Brush Creek Park Project. Here are a few of few of our programs:
This is just one of the seemingly impossible challenges that we have overcome. Our latest project takes the process out of the hands of government, oil companies and environmental groups and puts it in your hands.
More information about selected accomplishments.
1. The Georgia Phosphate Ban
We were 100% responsible for this law and we were the only group to have people prosecuted for ignoring it.
2. The Lawsuit against Atlanta by GEP
We were latecomers. We wrote letters to all the people we had worked with in the last year (Corps of Eng, DNR, EPD, Georgia Wildlife Federation, etc,) at that time asking them to write to the federal court favoring our position and the case was settled in a matter of weeks. This was only possible due to the previous enormous efforts by the Georgia Environmental Project in the early '90's.
3. Worked with the White House and the Department of Energy in the early 1990's on fuel economy that could save America up to 10% on gas!
4. Worked with a county government to run a Corps of Engineers park on the Chattahoochee in West Central Georgia from 2003 to 2017. It went from the worst place for crime in the county to the safest place. We were the first department to make a profit for the county in over 100 years!
We are going to educate as many people as possible about the true sources of heat and the simple steps they can take to greatly help address our accumulated heat crisis. We found many ways to do this that actually save you money and help the earth as well. We are going to do this with educational examples in video form, music, printed materials, and lectures. This will be done with easy-to-understand, easy-to-do solutions that any of us can do,
1. 100+ mile per gallon
2. Affordable- under $10k
3. Home (solar) charging, 75% less than full-sized cars.
4. Little or no wear on roads.
5. Can be gas or electric or a hybrid of bpth.
6. Batteries are 25% the size of regular electric car batteries. You get four batteries instead of one for the same amount of material used.
7. Inexpensive parts and repairs (lower insurance premiums)
Initially ULV's would see limited use in the Untied States. There should be a large market overseas. They could be used in emergency situations or by students trying to save money.
It is impossible to meet our future environmental goals if we continue to drive oversied, gaudy, wasteful vehicles which are so used to driving.
Without massive solar farms we will not be able to charge the present batteries without fossil fuel burning power plants. No gain/pssible losses without solar.
When gas gets to be $7+ a gallon many people will wish that they has an ULV. One time purchase with a car/solar charger,and little or no maintenance is the way pf the future. ULV's are perfect for many situations today. Low income, a first car, students, and elderly all could benefit from ULV's.
ChattART built it's first ULV in 1985. On the first outing it got over 70 mpg. With today's available technology, a 100 mpg vehicle should be easily obtainable. We hope to build such a vehicle this year that is safe, affordable to all., and fun to drive.
There are museums for nearly anything you can imagine, but there is no Chattahoochee River Museum.
The Chattahoochee River is the lifeblood of the State of Georgia. Georgia's two largest cities, Atlanta and Columbus are located on its banks. As many as 75 million people use Chattahoochee water every year. It is responsible for huge amounts of industrial, commercial, and recreational opportunities. It is responsible for billions of dollars of trade annually, yet it has no museum.
The museum should have three main focuses. They are water quality, historic preservation and economic developments.
1. Water quality.
We believe water quality begins with public education. While we are interested in public education we feel like the largest, quickest solutions should be aimed at educating leaders like group presidents. big business board members and other educators.
If it were located downstream of Atlanta it could continually monitor water quality. Its should have equipment to quickly test water samples from Georgia and the rest of the United States. It could be a model for other areas of the United States and the world, and H2O education center "the University of Water".
The river has a rich history stretching back into pre-human times. Georgia is noted for its rich Native American history, Native Americans and Whites clashing, slavery in the Civil War and early industry.
Economic development, its advantages and possibilities, consulting on all water matters.
It will be boost to the well being of all citizens.
EVERYBODY HAS A RIVER!!
Starting points are important. We are hoping to have as many people as possible ready to participate in The Earth Year Project when it begins on January 1st, 2024. These final months of preparation we are trying to contact other organizations and groups who may be interested in participating. Individuals as well. We are also looking for videos that may be used to help in our educational effort. We will be continually adding to this site throughout the month.
Thank you for your interest.
Last week (7-4-23) the earth experienced the hottest week in the history of meteorological record keeping.
