"The world is not a ball of cheese, and we are not rats gnawing on it, until it is all gone and we are left with nothing."

"If you want freedom, get yourself off the grid and utilise the sun, wind, water flows and heat from your environment to power your home"

"Never trust a salesmen. Always make sure you know much more about the product he's selling you than he knows"


What I want to do is to help people educate themselves about the future, so they are better placed to make the right kind of investments that guarantee them success, and help the environment and civilization.

I want to see people get smart about what their politicians and corporations are up to, and how they can fight back against corporate and political greed. One way to fight back to is to become energy self-sufficient.

There's an underlying, almost hidden theme in my courses. I want my students to see these courses as a means to become Energy Futurists - people who understand that the future isn't fossil fuel, but it's also not completely renewable energy.
