Mat Stein is an environmentalist, bestselling author, MIT trained engineer, and green builder. As an expert at self-reliance, emergency prep, and survival, his writings and work help people prepare to weather the storms we are facing due to continuing climate change and ecological decline, coupled with a fossil fuel based economy that has recently passed the peak in world oil production and is struggling to cope with impending near-term shortfalls.

Matthew Stein is the author of two bestselling books, When Technology Fails: A Manual for Self-Reliance, Sustainability and Surviving the Long Emergency (Chelsea Green 2008), and his new book, When Disaster Strikes: A Comprehensive Guide to Emergency Planning and Crisis Survival (Chelsea Green 2011), which released in November to rave reviews, hitting Amazon’s bestseller list! Stein is a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where he majored in Mechanical Engineering.
As the owner of Stein Design & Construction, he has built hurricane resistant, energy efficient and environmentally friendly homes.  The mechanical engineering side of his firm specializes in product design and development. Among other things, Mat has designed consumer water filtration devices, solar PV roofing panels, medical bacterial filters, emergency chemical drench systems, computer disk drives, and portable fiberglass buildings. 
In the second segment of this episode, beginning at 1:00 PM, we'll be joined by John Kappenman, the owner of Storm Analysis Consultants.
