Food Security for Succulents

Do plants need alternative energy sources? Can alternative energy give plants food security? For photosynthetic organisms, food security depends on availability of sunlight, which could be reduced by factors including air pollution and solar radiation management. Food Security for Succulents explores technologies that might benefit plants and ultimately provide food security for animals including humans. This is your opportunity to see the first prototype wind turbines for cacti and propose alternative energy schemes of your own. Food Security for Succulents is a preview of the Emerge festival, happening on March 21, 2020 at the Mesa Arts Center.

We have not seen or photographed them but we know they are there from two indirect means. One is the regular decreasing light when the planet gets between their sun and us. The other is the slight wobble of the star in response to the planet’s orbit.
