Trump election good news for science-based energy advocates

The election of Donald Trump (along with the Republican Congressional majority) may be the good news that science-based energy advocates (e.g. wind warriors) have been waiting for — for years now. For example, there is now a good chance that the wind energy PTC will be terminated!

Education Emergency: Our Children (and U.S.) at Risk

As an independent physicist I’ve spent 40± years on environmental advocacy, and energy education.
