Green credentials

My interest in green dates back to the 1970s to wind energy when the devices were crude and not very powerful. However, the bulk of my green technology coverage took place when I created the Green Engineering blog at Design News in 2006 and subsequently co-authored the Thinking Tech blog at I have been regularly covering topics such as the smart grid, climate change and renewable energy for past four years. What’s more, I’ve solar on my house since 2012 and generate 95% of my electricity from the sun. Heat pumps along with wood and pellet stoves are also part the energy mix at my house.

Below is small sampling of headlines that link to that work.

    Did you know that an American dog has an annual ecological footprint that is twice that of a Toyota Land Cruiser? Feeding the dog meat byproducts is worse for the environment than feeding an SUV petroleum byproducts.

    As Johnny Carson would say, I did not know that.
