Auburn Journal recognizes local author upon publication of the environmental/medical thriller novel, Green Power. The author’s background in science and his concern with our environment brought about the creation of this action filled fictional story of how mankind can use bacteria to both help and destroy our very existence.

Good work, Green! This is encouraging to all would-be writers!

Cool. I still need to pick that up. Haven't been to Barnes & Noble in a while now.

You can also order on line as my sons like to remind me.

Good God! Still spamming to sell off the excess 1989 thriller with methane digesters as a sub plot. The whole time overpopulation and CO2 have increased to the point of the tipping point of Arctic Tundra self-release. Green power?? Barely. 8) :razz: :x

Electriglide,
I agree that methane digesters on dairy farms play a very small part in helping our planet. However, if we can capture most of the methane gas being released into the atmosphere this would be helpful. They are doing this with a good number of landfills. Also, there are many other ways we can use alternate energy sources that don’t release carbon dioxide. But like my book points out in the beginning, there are still questions about the safety of nuclear power plants. Especially with what happen in Japan. I live in California and we have two nuclear power plants right along the Pacific coast.

The newest generation slow reactors are safe and so are the advanced design fast reactors that will use up all the nuclear waste. Anti-nuke people have stopped this form of non-CO2 polluting energy to the point of the present 397 ppm and the tipping point of massive tundra methane releases becoming a positive feedback loop. I found out (at Hansen's site) that in 1994, the best nuclear lab in the USA, the Argonne Lab, designed a great nuclear waste using safe fast reactor, and the Clinton Admin quashed it totally because of anti-any-nuclear political sentiment. Sure, methane digesters at dairy farms and other farms plus landfills, are a must where possible, but the anti-nuke crowd have caused a great deal of extra CO2, and thus AGW and the methane self-release tipping point. Much more warming than the farm and landfill methane, by the coal fired and other fossil fuel power plants built since the 3 Mile Island incident shut down more nuclear power plants in the USA.
Your book takes place in the anti-nuke hysteria of 1989 (with the Chernobyl incident with the poorly designed Soviet nuke plant, fresh in memory). The same anti-nuke so-called good guys who prevented the 1994 and other safe designed nuclear power plants to go on line replacing coal fired plants. Safe nuclear power that is the 3rd and 4th generation is much greener than methane digester power which still gives off CO2. Even 2nd gen reactors are greener. While your book portrays the opposite. It is a good action medical thriller that takes place in 1989, and is thus well dated. The title is a misnomer.
I realize you want to sell off all your excess books, and could not get it published until it was already dated. Pushing for sales at green internet sites is spamming.

Nuclear energy utilizing Thorium....


A few weeks before the tsunami struck Fukushima’s uranium reactors and shattered public faith in nuclear power, China revealed that it was launching a rival technology to build a safer, cleaner, and ultimately cheaper network of reactors based on thorium.
