What 3-5 words would you use to describe yourself?

active, passive, logical, skeptical, curious

What are you passionate about and what are some of your life goals?

about being outdoors in various environments, about understanding the implications of scientific knowledge, about not screwing up the planet more than "necessary." Hence one of my goals is to contribute enough to the environmental movement to make up for the damage I have done over an American life time.

What do you hope to get out of this group? Share any ideas you might have.

I'd like to have interesting discussions in a group with varied points of view and ultimate concerns.


I'm a recently retired astronomer with wide-ranging interests in what is going on in the world, how it got to be the way it is, and what people can and should do to bring about a future more desirable to---I admit it---me.

What Michael R. is saying about this Meetup Group
