About


As a retired professional engineer, I seek fact based intellectual discussions and understanding of issues and events. I am an avid supporter of the EPA and environmental groups that seek to protect the environment. I believe that Climate Change is largely caused by humans, and that governments need to force reductions in greenhouse gases.

Political Views


I consider myself liberal/progressive/pragmatist. I weigh both sides of an issue, and most often find the more liberal perspective as being more logical and socially acceptable, especially on social issues. However, compromises are necessary to accomplish anything.
