With four entries in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, DuBrucq hopes to present one or more to the December 19th session of the UNFCCC Meeting in Chile. Ending these coal mine fires which serve as perpetual ovens heating the earth’s crust, which cradles the oceans and tops the mountains, during the next five quarters should allow the ocean waters to cool by 2021 starting the recovery of this planet by moderating climate change and halting sea level rise.
Having studied at UW starting in 1955 and on through August, 1963, DuBrucq got the across the sciences education that allowed her inventing. She got her BS Degree in Home Ec Textiles after having six majors through her years – Zoology, Journalism, Home Ec. Textiles, Bacteriology, Commerce, and back to Home Ec. Marrying a physicist grad student studying under Julian E. Mack, brought the physics experience attending lectures and, when Prof. Mack became Scientific Attache to Sweden 1961-1963, she was in the host department welcoming weekly outstanding European physicists joining the lecture, dinner afterwards and scrappy discussions following. She worked on campus as secretary to the marching band leader, head of Math department, and did the analytical chemistry work for Gerald C. Gerloff’s Atomic Energy Commission study testing 250 native Wisconsin plants for 35 minerals and taking two semesters per quarter followed by having a Research Assistantship where she studied iron level effects on tobacco callus grown in liquid culture. Outstanding experiences included Frank Strong’s biochemistry and Ira Baldwin’s running of the Bacteriology Department. DuBrucq taught science in a Virginia Montessori School for 3 – 12 year olds and began inventing with a teaching puzzle having labelable parts of plants and followed with nine more divergent patents ending with Liquid Nitrogen Enabler, USP 7,631,506.
