Mark interviews engineer and author Jeff Krehmer about his new book Infinite Resources: How to Sustainably Develop the Arctic, by Supplying Green Hydrogen, Fresh Water, and Healthy Food to the World.

Prior to the interview, Mark reads comments from recent episodes, shares a personal update, and a word about this episode's sponsor.

Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women's equality. Collectively we can all #InspireInclusion.

In the interview, Mark and Jeff talk about:

  • Jeff's background in various disciplines, including mechanical engineering, project management, software, computer sales
  • Sitting on the vision for this current book project for more than ten years, and how having a heart attack two years ago prompted the idea that he should get that work out into the world
  • The basic premise of the book in that the arctic can create a sustainable solution if we leverage it in the right way
  • "If global warming is the problem, then shouldn't we be maximizing global cooling?"
  • The boiling temperature of different liquids, such as propane
  • Some of the coldest temperatures ever recorded on earth
  • How the book has numerous possible target audience readers, depending on which of the world's problems they are looking to solve (or the economics they want to reap benefits from)
  • What people can do to help
  • And more . . .

After the interview Mark reflects on the fact that, in the same way that humans have had an impact on the world, and Jeff is reminding us of the positive impact we can have if we learn and we act, we have an impact on one another. This is a reminder to authors of the powerful impact that they can have with the words they write and share.
