Life’s mission: Doing practical work to make the world a better place, and also writing about ideas for change.

Work: Originally a journalist. Later founded several global solar energy organizations and an American solar company. I wrote Sun Power: How Energy from the Sun is Changing Lives Around the World, Empowering America, and Saving the Planet.

Proudest Achievements: Invitation to attend, over multiple years, the Clinton Global Initiative, in New York City.

Expectations for the Future: More solar as it becomes the cheapest form of energy and people also see the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Favorite app: I don't have an iPhone and have no use for one; I use a PC desktop for work and a MacBook Air for travel. I have a flip-phone and seven landline extensions at home so we never miss a call.

Favorite websites: New York Times, REFDESK, Daily Kos.

Local causes supported: Smart growth, Everglades’ restoration, public parks, stop developers from clear cutting, encouraging solar usage in the county and city.

Favorite thing about Natural Awakenings: Covers healthy living and forms a community of concerned and caring people.

Most frequented healthy food restaurant: Loving Hut, in Naples.

How do you invest in your community: I participate in civic affairs whenever I can and join influential groups. Also attend public meetings when needed

Favorite quote: “The tyranny of the ignoramuses is insurmountable and assured for all time.” ~ Einstein

What you are doing to be the change you want to see in the world: Developing solar farms in New Mexico to serve rural electric cooperatives. Drive two hybrid cars. Don't over-consume.
