Happy Birthday Thomas Edison!

We all know we can thank Thomas Edison for the lightbulb, the motion picture camera, the phonograph, and NBC television but less well known is Edison’s love of nature and trees. He planted the first Banyan tree in the United States and is considered one of the founders of Chemurgy. Next to Benjamin Franklin, Edison was the most important and influential American scientist, and his contributions, like Franklin’s, continue to make a difference to our lives every day, though we little recognize them. Happy Birthday, Mr. Edison, and thank you!
