Craig R. Hover is the author of “A World To Come Home To”. This truly insightful book examines the steps we must take immediately to end global warming in our lifetime. In it Craig explains the politically charged and oftentimes confusing topic of global warming in terms that the average person can readily understand. The book presents in clear and concise language, a comprehensive and viable solution to end this developing global disaster using currently available technologies.
By trade Craig is a licensed professional engineer with more than 30 years of engineering, project and facilities management, financial services and consulting experience in independent business and traditional corporate settings. He believes that aggressive development of renewable energy sources is necessary for us to successfully meet the challenges of today’s national and global environment.
Craig is a third-generation engineer. His grandfather was a civil engineer who built highways across America during the Great Depression. His father was a mechanical engineer who worked in aerospace during the 1950s and 1960s—most notably the Apollo Moon Project. And Craig, also a mechanical engineer, spent nearly two decades working in the electric power industry in southern California.
Craig received his Bachelor’s Degree from California State University, Fullerton campus. After receiving his Bachelor’s degree, he did post-graduate work in nuclear engineering at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA). Heeding an early interest in renewable energy, Craig studied solar system design in the 1980s at ARCO Solar, an early pioneer in the photovoltaic industry.
Craig’s experience in the electric power industry came during his tenure at Southern California Edison, during which time he worked in the Nuclear Engineering Group and was part of the engineering team that built the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station south of San Clemente, California. While there, he was head of the environmental compliance program for nuclear safety equipment.
Following this, Craig became the general superintendent at the Santa Anita Racetrack horseracing venue in southern California and was in charge of engineering, construction, and maintenance of the facility. Craig was also a project manager with McDonald’s Corporation wherein he was in charge of building and remodeling restaurants in southern and central California.
After departing from the engineering corporate arena, Craig focused his energies in the financial sector, thus furthering this early interest in the field of economics and finance. He did financial analysis and futures trading, and was licensed in the areas of insurance, securities, and mortgages.
Craig’s interests go beyond the technical and financial fields. He has long been fascinated by the workings of the mind. With his wife Christine having a degree and licensed in the mental health field for more than 20 years, this close affiliation has resulted in him learning a great deal about the workings of the psyche and why people do what they do.
Now retired from engineering, Craig has devoted his life to an intense independent study of the global warming phenomenon and the domains of renewable energy and sustainability.
