Two worlds

As an engineer how can I reconcile the two worlds I inhabit ?

The first, a love of a nature and my desire to promote a world that can be as sustainable as I can make it.

The second, a world of rock and roll.

I would like to show some radical steps which allow my two worlds to collide.
