When it comes to providing information to the public or introducing a brand, a radio interview is one of the best mediums to use. That is why, in cooperation with CBS Radio’s host, Benji Cole, and Citi of Books Publishing, the inspiring and amazing stories behind every author’s work will be heard.
Marc D. Rappaport was interviewed by Benji Cole of CBS Radio for his fantastic book “On the Verge of Tomorrow.” They talked about his book’s theme and inspiration during the interview.
Marc D. Rappaport is an author and a retired inventor who was involved in renewable energy for forty years. In 1972, he invented the geothermal-solar hybrid system, for which he was awarded a basic patent in 1978. During the development of the geothermal-solar system, Mr. Rappaport engineered a biomass power project and developed the business plan as well. From this work, the development of Biomass One, L.P., emerged, as did the construction of a 22 MW plant in Medford, Oregon, that has been in commercial operation for the past 30+ years. He served as a founder, general partner, and managing partner. He has been involved with community and non-profit organizations as a volunteer over the years.
The book “On the Verge of Tomorrow” is written to inform you, the reader, of the many technologies that renewable technologies are ready to provide to the world, which includes both not so well-known as well as the usual ones. Here you will learn about biofuels that can be made from woody waste as a substitute for diesel called DME or dimethyl ether, torrefied biomass as a substitute for coal, and biochar as a source for carbon sequestration and soil amendment. Learn what it takes to develop a wind farm. Learn about a sustainable energy system that combines geothermal and solar for long-term clean base-load power and other things to save you energy and money.
