Do you see Dan Chiras's book, "Power from the Sun" the next step in flushing out more detail in providing access or acceleration for "Home and Alternative Energy" solutions in our District of Sustainable N.E. Seattle? If so, what would it look like?

I want to commend you on a great job of outlining Odum's take on the "4th Law of Thermodynamics" at last week's meeting. I really think this is important as an introduction to self-organizing systems in maximizing useful power. It also puts light on other potential power sources like Combined Heating and Power and co-generation opportunities that I think have been overlooked.
