study of marine mammals, and the engineering of solar energy systems. More recently, for seven years, he was superintendent of Lick Observatory, Mount Hamilton. Lick Observatory is the parent organization of Keck Observatory on Mauna Kea. Jack says he has tried retirement four times. . .and it hasn't worked. He is now looking forward to helping design ways to address the looming worldwide drinking water shortage.



Joe Wheeler (Austin, Texas) had his first exposure to rainwater collection as a child at his grandfather's cabin in the mountains of New Mexico. No filtration, no sterilization, just catch it and use it. Six years ago, when building his personal residence, poor quality groundwater made the decision to harvest rainwater an easy one. Initially, the system was time-consuming and messy to maintain. His search for a better solution led him Germany, where he found proven rainwater collection technology and a new business opportunity.



Ian White (Queensland, Australia) is a third-year Ph.D. candidate on scholarship in water quality and treatment at Griffith University, Australia. He strives to combine a scholarly mindfulness with a pragmatist's need for real results through a purposeful framework of informed and participative planning and action.
