Recent Energy & Environmental News

The latest Energy and Environmental Newsletter, is now online.

Three particularly revealing items from a very busy news cycle:

  1. As a reward for her efforts to assist New Englanders threatened by industrial wind energy, citizen advocate Annette Smith was sued for “practicing law.” Fortunately this sham was resolved shortly, in favor of common sense. (See here and here.)
  2. In an attempt to promote fiscal responsibility(!), some 350 of Australia’s climate scientists were given layoff notices. The argument to keep these positions was revealing. Before: they have high confidence computer models, and strong certainty that we understand the climate. After: there are many climate unknowns, and the models need a lot more work. (See here and here.)
  3. After dealing with thousands of adults on environmental and energy issues, it’s clear that our current education system is not working. We need to start someplace to fix this, so here are my initial recommendations.
