Daniel, thank you for being here. Tell us a little bit about you and your background:
I have extensive experience in renewable energy. I have degrees in business, science, and literature, and my startup and corporate sales experience has allowed me to become a high achiever in multiple fields. I’ve written over 50 patents and 100 books. I believe my company, Flower Turbines, has the potential to become as big as solar is today.
What is a fun fact about you?
I’m an avid fan of the outdoors but grew up in Manhattan. Maybe I liked the canyons there.
Why do you think climate change and sustainability is such an important topic today?
Even if you don’t believe there is climate change, at least you can agree that there is pollution, and we are squandering our resources by using petrochemicals for fuel instead of for medicines, clothing, etc. I do believe that climate change is causing unusual storms, loss of natural environments, etc.
What do you envision your industry looking like 10 years from now?
Small turbines will be everywhere. My company will be a trillion dollar company leading the field in wind energy close to people and buildings.
What can the average person do to make a difference?
Invest in our company! Watch their consumption. Try to become energy independent. Recycle.
