About the Blog

While this Blog is associated with Community Energy Systems, it is written by the President of the Board of Directors, Doug Nicodemus. As such it is not routinely reviewed by the entire Board. All opinions are his and any violations of 501c3 IRS standards are his and his alone.

I call this block Energy Tough Love because it is my belief that the human species will never quit burning things up until forced to. In early blogs I chronicle the burning behavior and why it persists long after it is needed. One definition of psychological disability or disfunction is “the continuation of a behavior long after its benefits have ended”. In many case in fact the behavior now result in negative results and yet the behavior persists. Burning things is obsolete, and now life threatening, so why do we continue doing it? Because we need to be told to STOP! Loud, long and forcefully.
