Alice Friedemann, the granddaughter of two scientists, is not a professor! Alice, however, is genetically predisposed towards doing extensive research and exhaustive reading, much of it accomplished as she read while walking 10 miles round-trip between home and office. A systems architect and engineer for over 25 years, she retired to devote more time to science writing on energy, ecology, climate change, whole grains, agriculture, infrastructure, and pollution of the environment, and too many other topics to list (see www.energyskeptic.com). She has recently come to see that the larger framework of her research is the fall of fossil-fueled western civilization from dozens of factors, though oil, being the master resource that makes all others possible -- especially heavy-duty truck, locomotive, and ship transportation dependence on oil -- is the main factor. She has a B.S. in biology with a chemistry/physics minor from the University of Illinois. She is the author of "When Trucks Stop Running: Energy and the future of transportation" (2015 Springer) and has published articles online at peakoil.com, resilience.org, among others.
