The Mediterranean is blessed with abundant sun and strong sea sonal winds. Advanced wind engines and solar cell electronics, with which we are already experienced, will be employed for pumping, irrigating and electrical generation. New Alchemy's water-pumping windmills are already more cost-effective than electrical or diesel water pumping in the United States. Apart from liquid fuels for earth-moving machinery and overland transport, we do not intend to need petroleum products in large quantities. Each project will be energy independent to a high degree and invulnerable to supply disruptions or major fuel price increases. It should be emphasized that it is our careful linking of the technical, ecological, energy and agricultural elements into a unified approach that provides the basis for this relatively autonomous method of land restoration.

Do we really want the one thing that gives us its resources unconditionally to suffer even more than it is suffering now? Nature, is a part of our being from the earliest human days. We respect Nature and it gives us its bounty, but in the recent past greedy money hungry corporations have made us all so destructive, so wasteful.
