Born in Denver, Colorado, lived all over the United States and even in Canada, traveling with my father, a building contractor, who was into "green" building (adobe, sod, etc.) before it was cool. Worked on a newspaper in California, an aerospace firm in Colorado, a utility company in Minnesota, and an oil firm in Winnipeg. Live to write, mostly about the environment and sustainability, in hopes that someday my grandchildren will inherit a better world. Finished a book on environmental initiatives for homeowners, to be published sometime in 2009. Welcome conversation, even disputation, but dislike chit-chat. Life is getting seriouser by the day (and, yes, I know there is no such word, but there should be). :)
Life is a journey; don't get lost studying other people's footprints.
John G., I don't know what subject you are referring to, so find it difficult to give you facts. Your thoughts, however, are unlikely to be without weight or merit. Please let me know what article/subject you are interested in.
I don't consider you pugilistic at all; I was unaware of Kaluza's culpability or I would have mentioned him - I don't pull any punches. That said, and considering the rest of your comment, I'm puzzled why you didn't post this on the blog site? But thanks for the inside info in any case.
