Environment Man measures his existence on the orbit of the Moon around the earth and on the rotation of the Moon. Of course, it is extremely difficult for the average human to calculate the number of Moon years of one's existence. The mystery of Eman continues.
The rotation of the Moon – or a lunar day – lasts around 27.3 days. This is the same amount of time the Moon takes to complete one orbit around the Earth. Because the rotation of the Moon and the length of its orbit are exactly the same, the Moon always presents the same face to the Earth.
Imagine that the Moon and the Earth are connected with an imaginary cable. The cable is bolted down on the Moon, but it’s connected to a ring around the Earth. So, the Earth can rotate at its own speed of turning once every 24 hours, and the Moon can go around it once every 27 days. But the Moon always shows the same face towards the Earth.

In a time of global climate change, debt debates, inner city murder, unemployment and terrorism, a superhero has emerged to mitigate the corrosion. Nuclear powered and photovoltaically tanned, Environment Man is friend to the poor, enemy of the evil doers, and dangerous to those ruining the Earth.
Of course, a superhero must have his down time. Eman retreats to his backyard garden to tend the corn, squash, zucchini, peppers, tomatoes, watermelons, canteloupes, cucumbers, broccoli and flowers. It recharges his lithium ion battery. Moreover, security lighting is provided by solar powered motion lights.
The backyard and garden are wildlife and plant reserves. Squirrels munch the corn and tomatoes. Groundhogs munch the broccoli. The deer eat the melons whenever the opening door is left open.
And then there is the organic fence, constructed from wood products from the nearby forested area.
After a hard day of climate fighting and private sector challenges, Eman retreats to his very own fortress of solitude.
Wind propelled and mobile via plug-in hydrogen fuel cell hybrid electric environmentmobile, E-Man wants the public to know this:
"It is now, it is always, it will be.....Environment Man."
