I invent. I focus on inventing and practical product development. I'm skilled enough at inventing, and the world has so few well-skilled solar and climate inventors, that even though I can handle many other corporate tasks I should strictly limit my involvement. To that end I look for alliances. The zero-fuel greenhouse has patent #8408199 and it will help heat and daylight any building. My building retrofit target is 90% local solar and 10% grid electricity for total heating and cooling needs. I have three different methods for achieving near-100% renewable electricity quickly and inexpensively. I compete mainly against myself. My transit system aims for 300 mpg equivalent in electricity, aggressively competing in the marketplace with freeways, quite covid-19 safe, wheelchair-friendly transit. About 100 separate innovations go into the transit system. I tend to invent a vast number of details, similar in extent to Thomas Edison's best work. The Arctic meltdown is on schedule and would be rather morbid for the planet. Sooner or probably later people will wake up to the idea of not suffering horribly, and they'll fund some potential solutions. My pack ice enhancing pump is one such solution. Anticipating the Arctic meltdown and its solution is typical of my work. I'm looking where almost nobody else has thought of looking in the first place. I haven't heard of anyone else of my generation that has my scope of mission-critical inventions for the climate crisis. Political and economic planning to squarely and quickly face every critical aspect of the climate crisis is an important part of our work. I'm skilled in working in a consensus-process environment.
