Dust Devil

Yearning for an enlightened future where all energy is harvested and recycled and never wasted. Instead, lamenting creaky clunky 21st century where every BTU exuded by refrigerator, oven, television, computer, incandescent lamp, stereo (vacuum tube no less), and dishwasher must be shoved outside on hot river of freon and blown skyward from kilowatt-hungry backyard contraption invented eighty years ago. Beam me through wormhole or fly me to norway for the duration.
