With a lifetime of experience teaching physics, directing and implementing energy research, providing nonprofit governance, plus living according to his own recommendations, David A. Robinson brings a wealth of practical experience and passion to the work of sensible living on a finite planet. His recognition years ago that more than the technology of science, the programs of government, or the miracles of faith were required to promote sustainable living led to the present book. Robinson lives in St. Paul, where he eats local food in season, heats his house with a water heater, and gets double smiley faces from his local energy company.
