Ben Franklin did not fly a kite in a rainstorm then suddenly Thomas Edison invented the light bulb (actually, neither of those things happened).  The history of and development of electricity is must more interesting – filled with scientists trying to pull a vacuum apart with teams of horses, deciding that a kicking frog leg was the key to visualizing the human soul, and much more.  Join Annie and Jay Warmke of Blue Rock Station for a discussion of the realities of sustainable living.
