Richard Lorson, 1928-2010

Richard Lorson, the author of this blog, passed away on Monday, October 18, 2010 at the age of 82. I am Richard's son, who pushed him to start writing this blog because I thought his strong support for the use of more hydroelectric power was a message that deserved a forum during this time when all policy makers are looking for ways to protect the environment and reduce the reliance on foreign oil.

Dad enjoyed writing this blog, and although it never really developed much of a readership it was something that brought him a little joy in the twilight of his life.

Anyway, if you have stumbled on this blog for the first time, go back to the beginning and read it through. These are some of the final writings of a brilliant man whose opinions, thoughts and presence will be greatly missed.
