(More) Singing the Strong, Light Works of Engineers

Huzzah, Engineers!

I've been crudely paraphrasing Samuel C. Florman for about a decade now when it comes to mitigating man's impact on the environment: It won't be the neo-Luddites turning out lights and hugging trees that protect our environment, it will be scientists and engineers who devise the technology, and innovators who perfect it and make it affordable and desirable.

Hopefully they will grow fat and rich on the gifts that their minds make to mankind. Provided that they're not compelled to Go Galt before then.
