This concludes my wrapup of the rocket mass heater
season. I have posted 37 videos to youtube about rocket mass heaters
this year - mostly in the hope that more people
will learn about rocket mass heaters and switch from problematic forms of heat (electric, natural gas, propane and conventional wood
stoves) to this much cleaner, much cheaper, overall super win for our wallets and well being.
I stopped off and visited with Ernie and Erica
a few weeks ago. Ernie is pissed. His words were something like "if you build a better mouse
trap, it will change the world". A rocket mass heater
saves the world, but the world appears to be comfortable shaking their fists at petroleum
without actually trying on a solution at home. Personally, I think
we have to swim upstream, against the flood of FUD from corporate trolls and general ignorance. As always, the solution is hundreds of small, easily digestible tidbits of information. And lots of work.
Super big thanks to my patreon
supporters. Without their help, this video
push would not have happened.
Big thanks to the plotskateers who helped me learn how to work youtube better. And it isn't really about me, it is about all of you. The videos on youtube that get a million views in a day have 700,000 likes and 600,000 comments. If you all want this information to get into more brains it is REALLY about YOU. The plotskateers showed that for each youtube video, you can:
- give a thumbs up
- watch the video all the way to the very end
- subscribe and click on the bell
- leave a comment (maybe two?)
- use the "share" feature
- use the "add to" feature (maybe "watch later"?)
Your love for a video charms youtube into showing this stuff to a hundred more people. Show your love for a dozen videos and that's 1200 people. So for people to learn more about rocket mass heaters or to learn more about pop singers on youtube rests entirely in your hands.

And now to take a few months off from rocket mass heaters and focus more on growies!
