Matthew St. Onge, in "10 Words or Less"

No, not Martians, of course, but what to call them otherwise? I'm referring to people who are working in the fields of sustainability, efficiency, renewability, etc. I run across a lot of them, and they've all got ideas, perspectives, and stories. So I've decided to try to introduce a few of them via a series of miniprofiles of a type I used to do at the Globe. They're mini because not only are they short, but all the questions, and most of the answers, are 10 words or less.
