#160 The Public is Beginning to Recognize the Use of EM Smokeless Carbonizers

#160 The Public is Beginning to Recognize the Use of EM Smokeless Carbonizers
In the previous article, I explained how as we continue to use EM its graviton effect becomes a layered structure, and when it reaches a certain level it self-propagates, reviving the environment and creating a more abundant ecosystem.

Needless to say, proper application of EM technology allows us to convert all discharged organic matter into agricultual and marine resources. As we have already seen, charcoal that has been transferred with EM hado has a high energy rectifying power, enhancing the function of the charcoal and maintaining its effects for a long period of time.

Terra Preta Nova, the miraculous soil found in the Amazon, which maintains its productivity semi-permanently (see DND article series #152, March 2020) and is expected to be a solution to agricultural and environmental problems, uses a rather large amount of charcoal in the soil.

The use of EM charcoal made with smokeless carbonizers, which began seven years ago, has achieved steady results. Takahashi Orchard in Higashine Ciy, Yamagata Prefecture, which started six years ago, has also overcome various difficulties and has now put out brochures touting their full confidence in this technology.

Both of them look younger than they were six years ago. Based on their good results, they are holding a workshop on April 13 to spread the idea to the community. For more details, please refer to the article below from the Yamagata Shinbun newspaper on April 14th.

Reducing CO2 Emissions by Carbonizing Pruned Branches: A Workshop by Farmers in Higashine Demonstrates How it is Done

April 14, 2021

Carbonization of pruned branches in Higashine City using a special device that shuts off oxygen and burns them 

As the movement toward lowering carbon levels spreads nationwide, the Higashine Cherry Environmental Association (Chairman: Seiji Akiba), consisting of farmers in Higashine City, is taking steps to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) from greenhouse gases by turning the pruned branches from fruit trees into charcoal. On the 13th, the first demonstration was held in Higashine City for farmers in Yamagata Prefecture and officials from the prefecture, nearby cities, and JA (Japan Agricultural Cooperatives). 

The normal method of disposing of pruned branches is to incinerate them, but in the process of turning them into ash, carbon is combined with oxygen and CO2 is released into the atmosphere. 

The Higashine Cherry Environmental Association is working to carbonize the pruned branches using special equipment that heats them while blocking oxygen, and then return them to the soil. The idea is that by storing carbon-encapsulated charcoal in the soil will lead to a reduction of CO2 emissions.

The demonstration was organized by the Association, and about twenty people participated. They observed the carbonization process at the orchard owned by Mr. Yoshinobu Takahashi (82) and Mrs. Kuniko Takahashi (77), who have been conducting demonstration experiments for about six years. The special equipment is capable of producing about 200 kg of charcoal a day, and the charcoal is expected to be effective in improving the fertility of the soil. They plan to continue to demonstrate the effects in improving the soil.  

A similar initiative has been launched in Yamanashi Prefecture. An official of the Agricultural Technology and Environment Division of the prefecture who participated in this project commented that, “I think this could be one of the technologies used to recycle pruned branches. I would like to collect further information, including efforts underway in other prefectures.” 

With the aim of building a sustainable recycling society, in January last year Higashine City became the first municipality in the prefecture to declare itself a “Zero Carbon City,” with the goal of reducing its CO2 emissions to practically zero by 2050. In August of the same year, the prefecture issued its “Zero Carbon Yamagata 2050 Declaration.” According to the Ministry of the Environment, as of the 12th, 366 local governments nationwide have announced similar efforts, and the movement to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is clearly spreading.


----------------------------------------

This high-hado EM rectifying charcoal should be applied by laying it around the trunk at the base of the tree, or by digging a hole between the trees and putting in about 2 to 3 liters to create an EM barrier (Kekkai.) If this is repeated year after year, the yield and quality of the crop will improve in proportion to the amount of charcoal, and CO2 can be completely recycled.
Needless to say, methods to strengthen the effect of this EM rectifying charcoal will further strengthen the EM Kekkai of the farmland. Mr. Shintani of EM Research Organization provided us with information on this subject, so I will upload it as is.



I received information from Effective Microorganisms Laboratory, Inc. about making a hado source using bamboo instead of plastic bottles, so I would like to share the information with you. Bamboo is hollowed out and filled with EM rectified charcoal, salt, EM, etc. The surface of the bamboo is carbonized by burning it with a burner. When they measured the hado value, they found that it was higher using bamboo than plastic bottles. In fact, there is a positive response from farmers who have used this bamboo-based hado source. Although it is far heavier than plastic bottles, I thought it was a good idea as an option that doesn’t use plastic.

< Information on how to make it will be published on a special rectification page at a later date. >

 

 

What’s Happening in Okinawa

The change in the course of Typhoon No. 2 is as reported in the local newspaper as of April 20, but since then, it has been turning to the south and changing its course to the southwest as it approaches Okinawa Island. Since this is the first time such a phenomenon has been observed, it may be an effect of the EM graviton Kekkai in Okinawa, but I would like to wait for further observations. As usual, I will introduce some flowers that appeared in the local newspaper.


46 ferry boats departures canceled among remote island routes

Typhoon No. 2 moves over the sea south of Okinawa

April 21, 2021 Okinawa Times

As of 6 pm on April 20, Typhoon No.2, an extremely powerful typhoon, is slowly moving north-northwest east of the Philippines. The central pressure is 935 hectopascals, the maximum wind speed near the center is 50 meters, with maximum gusts of 70 meters; within a radius of 165 km from the center, the wind speed is 25 meters or more.

According to the Okinawa Meteorological Observatory, this storm may continue to move over the sea south of Okinawa on the 23rd, with a central pressure of 965 hectopascals, a maximum wind speed of 40 meters near the center, and gusts of 55 meters. After that, it will change its course to the east, and on the 24th, it is expected that it will move eastward, still powerful, over the southern coast of Japan. In the coastal waters of the Okinawa region, the waves are high with swells.

According to the Okinawa Passenger Boat Association, 46 ferry boat departures were cancelled on the 20th, mainly in the Yaeyama region, and the decision whether to resume departures will be made on the early morning of the 21st.

A Bottlebrush tree in full bloom in Uruma City

April 11, 2021, Okinawa Times

The roadside “brush tree” near the Taira River intersection in Uruma City, Okinawa Prefecture, along Prefectural Road 75, is in full bloom. It is an evergreen small tree of the genus Callistemon of the Myrtaceae family, originating in Australia. In hanakotoba (literally, “language of flowers,” meaning the symbolic meaning given to each type of flower) these flowers stand for  “fleeting love,” “flame of love,” “honest feelings,” etc. (Tokuzo Yokoda, Reporter)

Aloe flowers blossoming under the eaves in Ishigaki City

Attracting Tourists in Ishigaki City

April 19, 2021 Okinawa Times

Aloe flowers blooming in a flowerbed under the eaves of a store along Sanbashi Street in Tonoshiro, Ishigaki City are drawing the attention of tourists. The flowerbed is near the Okawa intersection. About half of the ten plants have flower stalks about one meter long growing from the base of the plants, with yellow-green flowers resembling bananas in clusters about 15 cm in length. The owner of the shop said, “I planted them about ten years ago. Though I haven’t applied any fertilizer, they face south and have grown well and bloom every year, from winter to early summer. Tourists are surprised because these aren’t found on the mainland.” 

Aloe is a succulent perennial plant of the Liliaceae family native to South Africa and other parts of the world. Typical species are Aloe arborescens, which has long stems and mainly red flowers, and Aloe vera, which has thick stems, large leaves, and is dwarf size. In Okinawa, Aloe has been called Rugwai, meaning “No need for a doctor,” and is used for medicinal purposes. (Shigeru Ota, Reporter)

April 20, 2021 Okinawa Times

The begonias in Begonia Park in Izumi, Motobu-cho, are now in full bloom. Approximately 30,000 begonias planted on a slope of about 1,500 square meters are now dyed in a crimson color, and can be them enjoyed, along with the greenery of the surrounding hills, as you follow the set route through the park. Ichiro Gushiken, 75, the head of the park, says, “They can be enjoyed and appreciated in different ways, either viewed from below or seen from above.” The best time to view them is before Golden Week holiday, along with the jade vine in a corner of the park. 

The park is open from 9am to 6pm.
Admission is 400 yen for adults, 100 yen for high school students and those younger.
For inquiries, call the park at 0980 (47) 2742.

Amaryllis in full bloom
Amaryllis in full bloom at Ms. Oshiro’s house in Nago City

April 13, 2021 Okinawa Times

Many amaryllis are in full bloom at the house of Ms. Chieko Oshiro (86), in Miyazato, Nago City. About ten years ago, she started to divide the roots of the amaryllis, and now there are more than 1,000 plants of five species in full bloom. 

Ms. Oshiro said, with a smile, “I like butterflies and flowers, and the area around my house is filled with flying monarch butterflies and blooming amaryllis, adding colors to the season. I really enjoy this time of year.” She also hopes that since the plants she has divided will grow quickly, it will bring good luck for everyone in her family, that they will be blessed with children and that her descendants will prosper. “It is getting harder for me to go up to the rooftop to take care of the flowers because of my age,” she said, but she lovingly cares for them, fertilizing them and ridding them of any pests so that beautiful flowers will bloom throughout the year. She has lined up 70 flowerpots along the alley leading to the elementary school, hoping that passersby will also enjoy them and share her love of flowers. Amaryllis can be enjoyed from March to June when they are still in buds, so if you have room in your garden, she encourages you to grow amaryllis, including growing them in planters.

Pink flowers decorate the park
Primrose growing in colonies in Yomitan Village

April 5, 2021 Okinawa Times 

The pale pink flowers of Primroses are in full bloom at Cape Zanpa Park in Yomitan Village, Okinawa Prefecture. The flowers are in the red flower family and bloom from March to June. Unlike evening primroses, which bloom at night, it is said that the Japanese name, Hiruzaki Tsukimiso, comes from the fact that these bloom even in the daytime. (Hiruzaki means “blooming during the day.”) They grow in clusters here and there in the park, and delight the eyes of visitors.

Konronka (Mussaenda parviflora) are growing in colonies in hills and fields 
Nago City
April 10, 2021 Okinawa Times

During this season, lilies and konronka are beginning to bloom in the hills and fields of Yanbaru, the forested northern part of Okinawa. On the path at Kanbaru of Abu, Nago City, Konronka flowers (of the Rubiaceae family) are blooming in clusters. It is actually the sepals that give you the sense that white flowers are in bloom. The flowers are attached to the center of the sepals, which protect the buds and flowers and are yellow and star-shaped with a diameter of about 1 cm. The sepals are about 5 cm long and the leaves are about 14 cm long.

Adorning the streets    The arrival of spring
The first day of spring
February 3, 2021 Okinawa Times

February 3rd is called Risshun in the 24 Solar Terms (the traditional division of four seasons into six parts each), which is the beginning of spring on the calendar. At a private house in Kakazu, Ginowan City, flame vine flowers covering the walls have begun to bloom, beautifully decorating a corner of the street.

Flame vine is native to South America, and its flowering season is from January to March. Junichiro Ishigaki, 69, a local resident, happily noted that, “Last year, only a few flowers bloomed due to the typhoons, but his year’s blooms are beautiful. I’m sure there will be even more blooming.”  

According to the Okinawa Meteorological Observatory, the 3rd should see a high pressure system and sunny skies in the Okinawa and Daito Island regions.
