Leadership training isn't for everyone. It's for those who are committed to becoming communicators and advocates for effective, sane policy. This means food, energy, and water policy.

If you've got what it takes, consider Climate Reality Leadership training in Miami, Sep 28-30. Apply here:

How eco-friendly can 'Green City Miami' be if it's trying to push the Urban Development Boundary? #Greenwashing
Property owners are proposing to extend Dade’s Urban Development Boundary westward with a massive new project. The project would be called Green City, according to plans submitted last month. It could add about 26,000 new residents and thousands of new jobs near the edge of the Everglades. Planned for the 859 acres include 11,401 homes, 1.36 …

Boom. This is the end of criminalized cannabis. Once it starts being grown on tribal land farmers in each state will demand that they be allowed to grow it as well.
As more states legalise the recreational and medicinal use of marijuana, American Indians are looking to grow the crop on tribal land

To Feed Billions, Farms Are About Data as Much as Dirt. #AgChat 
Keywords: Data-centric companies with Silicon Valley pedigrees, like Granular and aerial surveillance startup DroneDeploy, have the ability to help farms run as efficiently as Google runs its data centers, writes Christopher Mims.

The answer to that question is: "Not if we transition to Aquaponics and Controlled Environment Agriculture in and around our major metropolitan areas." #Biochat #Foodiechats 
Ecologist Jon Foley says agriculture is the "most powerful force unleashed on this planet since the end of the ice age." He says we're using too much to irrigate and we have to rethink how we farm.

Story

Leading Clean tech Entrepreneur Working at the Nexus of Energy, Food, and Water for Sustainable Smart Cities
Introduction
Sean O'Hanlon has been called a "Bioneer" and described as "One of the most influential voices in BioEnergy". He first became interested in agricultural, environmental, health, economic, and energy issues while traveling internationally during the late 1990's and began investigating the potential benefits of alternative fuels. It didn't take long for him to zero in on Algae as the best source.

Over the years Mr. O'Hanlon has earned the respect of colleagues in every facet of Energy, Agriculture, Algae, Biotech, and Cleantech from San Francisco to São Paulo & Masdar to Montreal; briefed U.S. Congressmen, Senators, Governors, as well as Agriculture and Energy Officials in foreign countries; co-created and developed the Certified Biofuels Educator (CBE) program, served on the Center for Hemispheric Policy's Energy Security Task Force; chaired round table discussions and entire international conferences. He receives between 15-25 invitations per week to speak at a variety of business, educational, and governmental venues about Algae technologies and applications.

He regularly gives interviews to the media and has been quoted in the American City Business Journals, Des Moines Register, Forbes, Houston Chronicle, Miami Herald, New York Times, NPR News, San Francisco Chronicle, Science Magazine, and even the scientific journal Nature.

He is currently consulting on integrating advanced Algae technologies into Agriculture (CAFO's and Dairy Farms), Anaerobic Digestion systems, Aquaculture, Breweries, Distilleries, Ethanol plants & Sugar mills, Hydroponic systems, Landfills, Paper & Pulp mills, and Wastewater Treatment plants. The resulting Algae biomass can be fractionalized into Oils, Proteins, and Carbohydrates which contain high value bioactive compounds useful for functional foods and animal feeds.

  • DARPA
    Biological Systems Engineer, 2012 - 2014
    Recruited by TED Fellow Dr. Rachel Armstrong, The mission is to realize interstellar flight before the year 2100. We will accomplish this objective by researching and developing the science and the technologies that will make interstellar flight a reality, igniting the public’s interest, and engaging with all those prepared to invest in interstellar exploration. I am responsible for designing and integrating an Aquaculture (Algae-based) system that will be used for capturing and recycling the CO2 & Wastewater from the crew. That Algae will be used for producing oxygen, clean water, fertilizer for edible plants, and ultimately food aboard the ship.
  • Cleantech Open
    Director, 2013 - 2014
    The mission of Cleantech Open Miami is to find, fund, and foster entrepreneurs from all across Florida, the Caribbean, and Latin America with big ideas that address today’s most urgent Energy, Economic, and Environmental challenges. (Including Agriculture, Water, and Waste) Since its founding in 2006, CTO has established itself as the leading force for accelerating clean technology entrepreneurs. Of the nearly 600 companies we have worked with, 80% remain viable today and they have gone on to raise external capital exceeding $660 million. By developing a network of more than 1,500 professional volunteers who are willing to lend time and expertise to entrepreneurs who may otherwise not be able to get their ideas off the ground, we are facilitating the growth of the Cleantech Industry and all the positive impact that will come from such technologies. We recruit and match leaders to mentor cleantech startups with growth opportunities in: • Renewable Energies • Energy Storage & Distribution • Energy Efficiency • Renewable Chemicals & Biobased Materials • Information Technologies • Green Building • Transportation • Agriculture, Water & Waste With seven active regions across the US these connections are truly global. A startup based in Miami can receive mentoring from an expert in Houston, license its technology to a strategic partner in California, and receive venture capital from New York. The Cleantech Open provides a platform for that kind of interaction and visibility. My team and I have taken Cleantech Open from having zero presence in Florida to statewide recognition in less than 6 months.

I have been in a few times and I have always found them to be super helpful and friendly. I must have spent an hour in there one day asking a hundred stupid questions and the young woman answered every one of them without getting frustrated. I would recommend these folks for their selection of bikes and customer service.

Meh. It's a Starbucks. There are very few parking spaces at this location. The only really good thing about this place is the free Google WiFi.
