Professor James Blyth biography of a Scottish academic is it a stub?

I watched with captivated interest Professor Iain Stewart concluding a landmark five-part series Sunday 21st November 2010 at 8pm In which he revealed how Scotland's unique and beautiful landscape has been shaped over the centuries. During the Industrial Revolution, Scottish scientists and engineers helped unwittingly set off a chain of events that today we know as climate change - a process that is transforming our atmosphere and warming our planet. Professor Iain Stewart looks at how Scotland is on the verge of another revolution: the transformation of a carbon economy to a green one.

I would suggest that anybody that is passionate about Scotland, as I am and extremely curious about science and engineering, especially with the fundamental possibility of learning from our very obvious and extremely evident mistakes. With a view of helping changing perspectives and opinions that will ultimately help ourselves and the rest of the World and our Planet. Which had our forefathers been as aware of methods and processes, plus proceedures that we now know contributed to climate change, would they have embarked on the same journey and route?

Wikipedia say's it all really, Professor James Blyth (4 April 1839, Marykirk, Kincardineshire – 15 May 1906, Glasgow), was a Scottish electrical engineer and academic at Anderson's College, now the University of Strathclyde, in Glasgow. He was a pioneer in the field of generating electricity through wind power and his windmill was the world's first-known structure by which electricity was generated from wind power.

Dear Professor James Blyth RIP you were in my opinion an underrated genius long before your time, or were you? I can only imagine the conflict of interest your ideas represented pre industrial revolution. However you seemed to be a lone piper, underestimated or overestimated and possibly a threat? We should pay homage to your foresight, splendour, purity, clean and altruistic motives!

I personally relate to Professor James Blyth's story and journey, as there are some undoubted correlations and parallels between his experiences and mine, most useful statistical and historical proof in negative and blinkered mindsets, even stupidity. Emphasising the real challenges and huge obstacles still very evident and utterly visable today, even with the climate evidence and statistical significance, plus proof!!! It would seem that we still continue to devour and consume irrespective of the knowledge and evidence, plus personal signs, examples witnessed Worldwide through mankinds impact and general experiences now supporting decades of theories behind our practices.

Respect to Professor James Blyth ‘harnessing the winds’ made him ‘a pioneer in this department of practical engineering’. I intend to execute and deliver a sustainable legacy in which art meets science and engineering splendour. In memory of Professor James Blyth through a sustainable meaningful legacy for the World!!!


Breaking Barriers are we??????????????????????????????????????????????????

Documentary "The Spirit of Business & The Values of Principles"

Aim to be Michael Moore of Scotland, not mythological, true to myself, and my beliefs for a very successful and progressive Scotland via unique innovation, ideas, concepts and visions, that will continue sustainable lasting and meaningful legacies for Scotland! Through macro and micro initiative and "Method of Operating" being ignored or traceable, organic locally sourced incentives being wasted. We will be exploring Banking, Finance irregularities, and catastrophic failures, plus continual self centred preservation monopolies. Through to humongous calamities by bureaucrats, politicians via continual errors in judgment, detrimental to our wealth and well-being. Plus business and planning processes and the inconsistencies via a multitude of planning and business applications that have no consistent logic or coherent pattern? Scholars and Academics, Historians, Physicists, Psychiatrists through to various Professionals from different specialist areas and fields and Business People, plus ordinary folk will be involved in the process and partake via interviews. Wishing to contribute towards making a meaningful difference, evoking, plus proving significant change for the better of us all.

Thinking out of the box

Therefore I have formed a Co-operative/Consortium like motive operandi applying inherent value and intrinsic value towards it current pledgeholders, future shareholders and anticipated investors. Beyond the mere principle value of itself and Co-operative/Consortium Partners, who share the same values and principles towards executing, performing and delivering overwhelming and unconditional current pledgeholders value, future shareholders and anticipated investors value and returns, beyond mere monetary values and principles but more importantly Ecological and Environmental dividends and returns. Towards making a substantial and prolific difference, through evoking, plus provoking necessary change in attitude, behaviour, culture towards the ecology, environment and the built environment.

We all have the ability to stand up and be counted. Lift our heads above the parapet, make a difference, be that change. Especially unique and innovative ethical ideas for the better of all.

Extremely admirable the protest and statement Doctor David Kennedy made. I would concur that Donald Trump is by no means an exemplar or shinning idealogy for students to admire or follow.
