Bio: Mr. Richards is a classically trained engineer and has served in the sciences since 1995 when he was invited to lead a research team at U.C. Berkeley. In his youth, his father was an Assistant Attorney General heading his state's environmental regulation department through the period of time the EPA was founded at the federal level. For a time, young Mr. Richards became an unpaid staff member of the Attorney General's office, providing legal research assistance to the lawyers in the justice department and he took the opportunity to travel with his father and attend the many meetings around the country as the nation's environmentalists helped shape what became the Environmental Protection Agency.
I don't need to tell fellow Progressives of the turmoil among Progressives that happened after the 2016 election and prior to the new President being sworn in, and followers of this site's comment section at the time will understand how this site "fell apart", and basically lost its audience. ... However, since then, the need for a site like this has only increased, and as the site is still up, I figured I might as well harness it to get some important ideas out there! Hope you'll follow my work.
Below you can find links to my articles in reverse chronological order, newest first. At some point I'll probably do something different! Most likely, my next articles will likely be based on what's in the news - that's the site's directive - but I won't necessarily hold to that since I'm going to always write on subjects near and dear to this Progressive's heart.
