I live in California. I like windmills and love to tell people how they work. If you want to hear, just ask.

Palm Springs, CA

Lifelong learner and educator focused on renewable energy. As a kid, I wondered what we would do after fossil fuels. Now I help explain the path forward to anyone who will listen. I also write on occasion and enjoy photography. See Backstories of the Palm Springs Windmills on Amazon

  12. Jan 6 Yet Unresolved

    In many ways, the lack of resolution for events two years ago fuels the stalemate in the House of Representatives today. @danrather and @elliotkirschner
  13. WTF bird feed?

    Why am I just realizing on the bird site the feed is populated by your categories chosen long ago? Or in my case (my burner account so I can get tech support from major companies), last week? Elmo put

  15. Jeffries Gambit?
