I believe the world as we have known it is on the brink of dramatic change. I wish to prepare a place where my children and grandchildren will have a safe haven should that be necessary.

and mixed in kaolin to initiate the reaction. I formed little clay "widgets" that resembled dice. They cured nicely. It's been 30 plus years since I played with molar solutions. Dr. Davidovitts, the scientist who proved the Great Pyramids were composed of geopolymers, suggested in an email that I follow his patent. I think I was mostly flying by the seat-of-my-pants. ;)
Here, read more about it on Wikipedia: Geopolymer: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geopolym...
Hi Rael, thanks for writing back. Geopolymers is a facinating compound. It is a polycondensate of alumino-silicate that as a slurry, it looks and behaves like concrete. However, when it cures, it can become as hard as granite. This compound can sequester radioactive compounds, blocks gamma radiation, resists all bet the strongest of acids, can withstand temperatures above 2500 degrees Fahrenheit. When it gets hot, it does not gives off any toxic gases. I made my own sodium silicate (water glass)
Hi Rael, Interesting article about climate change. They omitted half-a-dozen factors affecting the 'global climate disruption' phenomenon. The effect is more cosmic, than terrestrial. All the planets are being affected, including the sun. Some of these are from the galactic duststorm, the IBEX ribbon, the Earth's magnetic poles are shifting, and the magnetosphere is developing large breaches. Cosmic radiation is up 19% from 50 years ago. Many changes are ahead, that is true.
I look forward to meeting you. Remind me to tell you about additional Meetups I host in Sanbornton, which is closer to Gilford where you live.
