Matthew Stein - When Technology Fails, 400 Chernobyls, Super Solar Storms & EMPs
April 19, 2012
Author, engineer, designer, and green builder, Mat Stein was born and raised in Burlington Vermont. He graduated from MIT in 1978 with a major in Mechanical Engineering. Mat has built hurricane and earthquake resistant, energy efficient, environmentally friendly homes. He has also designed consumer water filtration devices, solar PV roofing panels, medical bacteriological filters, emergency chemical drench systems, computer disk drives, and portable fiberglass buildings. Today, Mat owns and operates Stein Design and Construction, providing product design services, engineering analysis, and green building. He joins us to discuss six major trends he calls, "civilization busters."If these trends don't change soon, it may well be the perfect storm. We'll also talk about shifting to sustainability, the free market, consumer's responsibility and government regulation.
