  • Is green energy our new plastics industry?

    If The Graduate were written today, Mr. McGuire’s career tip to Benjamin probably would have been “green,” rather than “plastics.” But it’s likely Benjamin would have responded in the same quizzical way: “Just how do you mean that, sir?” It was difficult to envision the vast number of new products, businesses and careers that would emerge from the plastics industry following World War II.

  • How can we live sustainably?

    My working life began as an underground coal mining engineer in the UK-Yorkshire coalfields; my profession was lost to Margaret Thatcher’s policy of shutting down my mine (1991) because of the environmental effects of burning fossil fuels and its impact on acid rain in Scandinavia forests.
