Bill Ferree Book Signing - Saturday, September 28th
Join us at 1pm on Saturday, September 28th as Bill Ferree signs copies of Empty Tank, Empty Wallet.
Bill Ferree has had a lifelong affinity for technology, especially the technology of machines that move. His parents described a young Billy obsessed with trains. Ferree grew up in farm country, but left for school and never went back. A degree in mechanical engineering was followed by service in the Navy, and then a career as an airline pilot. It was a career built on fossil fuel. Billís more recent experience has included local government elected office and membership on a regional transportation planning board. This is the front line where financial constraints, some caused by the drain of spending for energy, must be resolved with the demand for services now, and the need to set aside resources for the future. Protection of the environmental future is one of the most difficult challenges. Ferree takes seriously his role as a grandfather. The obligation to pass on to grandchildren and future generations the best world possible, one with minimal unwanted residue from our time here, is the organizing principle for life and work. He is optimistic.
