More from Western Power

"As we enter a new millennium, unlimited power appears to be an inalienable right. After all, without it we would not have water, lighting, heating, transportation of consumer goods. Our communication system depends upon it. Out entertainment requires it. Medical care demands it. This dependency is a recent phenomenon in human culture. Yet, we take power generation for granted and pay little attention to how it is generated and distributed. Even less do we consider how we are to sustain our ever-growing need for more and more energy. "–Joan Myers
