Overview
A generous, kind pilot with a passion for reducing waste, Ron Forster never imagined he would change the world, but in the 1970s, when the world was living blind to their destruction of the environment, he realized something had to be done. Distraught by the power shortages across the country, he set out to change the tide in favor of privately owned renewable energy, rather than large power monopolies. He came up against power giants, nuclear power plant owners, and wealthy money-hungry men, but he overcame them all. With the help of his friends and brother Ed, Ron Forster made it possible for hundreds of small, privately-owned renewable power plants to once again turn their wheels and bring light to the country.
Description

Order 14133 is a short biographical historical fiction, describing some of the rippling effects of the life of one man, Ron Forster, and his brother Ed. It takes you through his journey to becoming a passionate environmentalist, and how he went to bat for mother earth against the power giants and fought for a law that would empower individuals to own and refurbish alternative energy power plants. It's always important to understand the origins of where our fight against climate change and pollution began, and what better way than to honor one of the first to join the fight?
