Put magnets in the road on the way down the Bombay hills. Have a receiver inside an electric car. The magnets will slow the car down, pushing energy into the vehicle's battery. This is gravitational potential energy so it's almost completely free.

There is a device called a 'Hoffman Voltameter' that uses electrolysis to split water into hydrogen and oxygen. There's another device called a 'Hydrogen Fuel Cell' that combines hydrogen and oxygen, releasing electricity. By storing hydrogen and oxygen in separate tanks we can store way more energy than a conventional battery.

Gown own veggies at home, small raised garden with basic veggies as salad, carrots and cucumbers requires low maintenance and reduces waste way beyond our houhousehold.Fresh organic food available when you need it rather than massive overproduction in stores.

Most of the world is trying its best to be proactive in mitigating climate change, but a few "troll" nations are really hamstringing the process; see Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, the US insisting on the new IPCC report being "noted" instead of "welcomed", throwing a huge spanner in the works of the COP24 proceedings, and the rather ludicrous sideshow put on by the US and attended by their lacky Australia on the virtues of coal(!?). If most of the world that is on board cut the few troll nations...

It's a remarkable innovation that https://impossiblefoods.com/ has created a vegetarian meat that convincingly tastes like regular meat by isolating the heme molecule. Could we provide public funding support to scale up this innovation, and defeat red meat which has an enormous carbon footprint in the marketplace by providing a widespread, delicious, low carbon alternative? Red meat eaters would take some convincing, so could we support promotion with lots of free samples in supermarkets...

Auckland has a problem with inefficient, energy intensive urban sprawl yet we have massive amounts of land in the inner city surrounding individual houses.  We have a ;legacy Landuse problem.   How do we transform existing privately owned single dwellings to terraced intensified community (neighbourly - cohousing) oriented homes? We could approach / advertise to retired home owners in THAB and 3 story planning zones to sell their homes into a shared redevelopment legal structure to...

Plant more Broader plants that cover the ground to protect mother earth from the sun and paint black/dark rooftops white/cream so the rooftops don't heat up as much/as fast and ricochets the heat.

Railways embankments and other brownfield sites along the railway lines could provide an ideal location for solar generation. These could be used to provide clean energy to local communities or, more ambitiously, to power the rail network itself.

Based on the facts, moving to plant based diet/life will contribute to save the environment. Climate Change : Global Greenhouse Gas Emissions - 51% due to LIVESTOCK and their byproducts -13% due to transport (road, rail, air & marine) Water use: The meat & dairy industry use 1/3 of earths fresh water i.e. Aprx 1025 lt of water is used to produce 1 lt of milk Waste: Waster from a farm of 2500 dairy cows = waste from a city of 411,000 people Land use:...
