ENVISION THIS...Leaders who are BOTH lovers of nature AND successful in business!
At 8:00PM on November 14, 2012, Envision This! will be interviewing
Since this was entered late, not to worry. The show will be archived for your listening convenience.
RP (Bob) Siegel, author, inventor, engineer, and founder of Rain Mountain LLC not only envisions but also embodies this. We encountered him through his novel, VAPOR TRAILS, which exposes intrigue at the highest corporate level, which unravels when one senior executive defects from the dark conspiracy in order to escape from the burdens of his past, regain self-respect and open himself to the potential of a new love. This sweeping story, that crisscrosses the planet at a feverish pace, is grounded in carefully researched science. Burl and Merry both found it a compelling read.
However, Bob also has his feet and his writing talents firmly grounded in technology. His recent articles include among others: Is There Really Such A Thing As Green Fracking? And Wastewater Treatment Plant to Produce Electricity From Fuel Cells
Bob writes, "we have been progressing and progressing for centuries, but doing so in the absence of any kind of guiding principle other than that of making progress. Is progress then an end in itself, or is it a means to an end? As we have been gaining more and more control over our environment, it is as if we are transforming our entire planet into this extraordinary vehicle, to which every generation is adding new features, but somewhere along the way, the question of exactly "where do we want to go," has gotten lost in the details of production, efficiency, and lest we forget, maximization of profits.. This tunnel-vision proliferated, largely because individuals got rewarded for maintaining their little piece, which met their needs, while no one took responsibility for overseeing the emerging big picture."
RP Siegel is an author and inventor whose passion runs along literary, environmental, and technological lines. His publications include business and technical articles as well as the recent sustainability novel, Vapor Trails, his third, co-authored with Roger Saillant. He is a Professional Engineer. A prolific inventor with 44 patents, RP is also President of Rain Mountain LLC and is the Founder and Executive Director of Cool Rochester, a non-profit agency devoted to reducing the carbon footprint of Rochester, New York by one billion pounds by 2012.Follow RP Siegel on Twitter http://twitter.com/RPSiegel
