As a clinical laboratory scientist with a BS degree in microbiology I am interested in how bacteria and other microorganisms can help mankind solve our environmental problems. One example is methane digesters that capture methane gas and use it to fire up generators and produce electricity. I've read your discussion on Cow Power and how PG&E in California is piping methane gas captured at dairies that use methane digesters.
As the author of the novel, Green Power
, I have used my knowledge of microbiology and interest in methane digesters to create an exciting thriller. I've added an intriguing twist in which an epidemic breaks out, pointing to a methane digester as the cause.
I use my writing to express my feeling about the use of alternate sources of energy. I even take a shot at the problems we've had with nuclear energy.
