Soon, this page will feature a somewhat complete autobiography.
For now, my name is Irv Mills and I live in Kincardine, a small town on the eastern shore of Lake Huron in Ontario, Canada.
I grew up on a beef farm here in Ontario and spent the first part of my working life as a maintenance electrician (switchyard worker) for the provincial power utility. I started a graphics design, printing and sign making business in 1992 to occupy my spare time, and retired when I was 51 to operate it full time. I sold it at the end of 2014 and am fully retired now.
I am the co-ordinator for the Community Garden here in Kincardine and have a vegetable garden in my front yard as well.
I've known about climate change since the 1990s and Peak Oil since the early 2000s. I started this blog in 2012 and in the next couple of years came to some sort of an understanding of what's going wrong with the economy.
I am an atheist and a skeptic and try to keep true to that by presenting an evidence based version of the topics I discuss here.
In the spring of 2018 I wrote a series of posts that is essentially an autobiography. Someday, I'll move them here as a single piece and add in all the things I forgot. In the meantime here are links to that series of posts:
