About Andrea

I’m a professional environmentalist and writer formerly of  Toronto, and currently living in Hamilton, who happens to be madly in love with the environment of Southern Ontario. I’ve spent the last few years managing the submission of several Renewable Energy Approvals for wind projects under Ontario’s unbelievably controversial Green Energy Act.

Thanks for stopping by, and please contact me with any questions at info AT andreamcdowell DOT com.

      1. Hi Andrea… just heard that you have left the employ of MKI. I do hope you will heed, as posted on your blog, Monbiot’s pleas to stop the industrialization of the remaining natural environment and to instead, enable and embrace its re-wilding. …. a long time defender of the wilderness..

      2. Hi Jane. Thanks for the comment. I suspect our opinions on wind energy will remain very different, but I wish you all the best in the future with all of your environmental endeavours.

  1. Dear Andrea, I know you are probably way to busy to read this, but I have decided to award you with the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. If you are interested in reading more about it, find it here: http://craftsandtravels.com/award/
    I am not dissappointed if you do not fetch your award, but I would just like to let you know that your blog is very interesting to me and I just had to let my readers know about it.
    Thank you for your inspiring me 🙂
    Best regards,
