The last time we talked with Steve Heckeroth, we discussed the history of climate change, the source of fossil fuels, the way that agriculture helped to stabilize the Earth’s climate after the last ice age, and how it can do the same thing again.
This Climate Graph is in That One
Along the way, we found that Steve Heckeroth – founder and CIO of clean tech firm Solectrac and maker of high-efficiency electric farm tractors, sure – but Steve also happens to have a long history of building EVs that goes way back into the 1990s, when he converted a Type III Karmann Ghia to electric power to help advance the cause of California’s original 1990 ZEV mandate.
That wasn’t even his day job. Steve’s also an architect, who specialized in designing solar-powered “umbrella homes” in California that produced their own power, and used the insulating properties of the Earth around them to keep them at a more-or-less constant temperature.
In other words: Steve is an interesting guy, and I think you’ll love hearing more about the journey that led him to where he is today. Give it a listen, then let us know what you think of this latest episode of CleanTech Talk in the comments section at the bottom or the page.

Former Tesla Battery Expert Leading Lyten Into New Lithium-Sulfur Battery Era — Podcast:
I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
