After graduating from college (Sociology) I worked for about ten years in the tool and die industry in Detroit.   After that I spent 25 years designing and building passive solar housing in the Southwest.  In my old age most of my effort spent in in developing the distributed production of biochar in our homes.where we can use all of the excess heat that is produced for cooking, space heating and hot water. 

Throughout most of my life the issue has been how we could finance what needs to be done to be good stewards of creation, not the technology.  Never has the financing issue been in such sharp focus as it now is with our man made climate issue now threatening our entire planet.
