Final stage of Lismore Base Hospital gets underway

Hannah Grace, Ocean Shores

In some parts of the Sahara they only get about 12 to 13cm per year of rainfall but they have a lot of fog.

A German experiment is going on where mesh vertical walls (like a heavy duty fly screen) capture the fog, which drips downward as water, and is collected in receptacles. Mesh walls with mostly vertical wires seem to be the most efficient. If the walls are electrically charged they suck more water toward them.

Maybe this clever idea is another way for us to fuck the planet by sucking the water out of the air.

If we really want to get a grip on saving the planet we have to sterilise all babies at birth and make ourselves extinct. Happy New Year!


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
