About Patricia McArdle:

Patricia McArdle, an advocate of sustainable, renewable energy and a volunteer promoter of integrated solar thermal cooking technology, joined the board of Solar Household Energy and Solar Cookers International in 2007 to promote the use of solar cookers. In her public lectures and demonstrations she argues that the widespread use of this simple technology will dramatically improve the lives of the hundreds of millions of women and children who must travel miles from their villages to gather wood every week. Using solar cookers in combination with fuel efficient stoves and retained heat cookers will also reduce deforestation and CO2 emissions. Cooking and pasteurizing water with the sun will prevent millions of deaths each year from diseases caused by drinking contaminated water and by inhaling the smoke of cooking fires. Ms. McArdle has more than 30 years of international and public affairs experience.

Patricia served as a Peace Corps volunteer health educator in Paraguay in the early 1970s then joined the U.S. Navy where she spent three years at a remote communications base in Morocco. After 27 years as a U.S. diplomat, she left government service in 2006. Her last overseas assignment was as the Department of State’s senior representative at a British Army-run Provincial Reconstruction Team in Northern Afghanistan.
