I think i should also do that as I get older, go into very poor areas set up free water and electricity.

It only costs like 50k to turn any poor area for over 30 miles into rich lush land.

u think if it waz that easy, people would have done it by now. You have to take in account the geographical climate and weather patterns. Africa is a very unforgiving land prone to droughts.
Not True. There are far more variables involved. I could easily do it in less then 3 months, but would my family protest?
Of course, they would! The money could spent on some vacation or etc. There are many people that would help.
I design and invent things, it comes naturally to me.
In fact it could be done in any area, less then a 1/4 mile down, you hit the water level. A basic 50k pump can irrigate roughly 30 miles. That same pumped water could be used on several rows of windmills to provide electricity. Then Aqua ducts, etc.
You have never been to the middle east have you?
They have Titanic Sea Turbine Windmills that pump millions of gallons of converted salt water inland. Dubai is one of the zeniths now of world architecture.

But you see in every poor area, there are far too many corrupt leaders.

The Biggest Irony I find on this board is the Afrocentrics and their claims on Egypt. Even the north africans state what I say. A complete functional pyramid has been built that generates massive amounts of electricity and it is nowhere near Egypt.

dude there have BEEN MANY people before u with the same dream. Like u said, corruption. Not only will you be building infrastructure but entrusting your money to people who may use it for their own means.
Not everyone is going to be on the same page as you. You need more then yourself to make your dream a reality. Its a group effort. Some people don't play nice especially countries that are war torn or facing abject poverty. Every man for himself with different goals from your own,
Like getting the current model mercedez benz to match your wife suite.
Actually, my brother-in-law actually did what I stated in Africa; only to have it torn down and sold in 6 months. There is a reason why many places do not get any help at all. That money would have been better spent on a new SUV. Do a little digging why places like Haiti, parts of Africa, etc get no help.

The Bottom line is Africans and Haitians need to do this for themselves and it should be managed by them locally, by the people and not by the rulers.

Every country has it's own special needs.

This guy was bright enough to build a windmill!

In India, they use buffalo manure to generate gas which is then pumped into high pressure tanks!

http://www.faculty.fairfield.edu/faculty/hodg...

How 2 million power plants are turning cow dung into electric power and cooking fuel - and ending up with even better fertilizer than manure.

Cow dung may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of state-of-the-art energy technology. Yet in the tiny village of Pura in south India, this humble waste material is providing people with basic amenities formerly in short supply: electric light, pumped water, and clean cooking fuel. An ingeniously simple process that converts dung into a flammable gas, called biogas, has greatly improved daily life for Pura's 485 inhabitants - and for over 10 million other rural Indians.

Biogas, as its name suggests, is produced by extracting chemical energy from organic materials. This process takes place in a sealed container known as a biogas digester. The digester is usually a squat, cement cylinder two to four meters in diameter, with a duct in the side that allows the dung or other organic wastes to be fed in, along with water. In ambient temperatures of 25 to 35 degrees centigrade, the material soon begins to ferment. This produces a mixture of gases, primarily methane and carbon dioxide, and a nutrient-rich slurry. The gas is drawn out through a valve at the top of the digester, and the slurry is drained off into settling troughs at its base..

Methane is the combustible component of biogas. It is piped into homes to be used as a cooking fuel, or used to fire a diesel engine to generate electricity, as in the case of Pura. The slurry is such an excellent fertilizer that it's often more highly valued than the gas - biogas plants are often called "biofertilizer plants."
