Is photovoltaic technology worth the trouble?

Is photovoltaic technology worth the trouble?

Given the 2012 ITC ruling against China for its massive government support of its photovoltaic manufacturers, no clear consensus has emerged as to the effect this will have on our solar industry at large. However, it’s certain the continuing drama will tittilate policy hacks for a long time to come while distracting us from our overall energy strategy. Let’s take […]
Wind, fish and climate on Ascension – and do we need a green MI5?

Wind, fish and climate on Ascension – and do we need a green MI5?

  From www.themushypea.blogspot.com Currently the German company Enercon are constructing some new wind generators on Ascension Island (I believe they are 5 x 330 kW for the RE geeks among you). Obviously in a place like Ascension, with its seabird colonies and delicate marine wildlife large structures like turbines can be a source of concern. Some of the birds and […]
Will Icahn use Dynegy to Change the Energy Game?

Will Icahn use Dynegy to Change the Energy Game?

News that investor Carl Icahn will buy Dynergy, a Houston-based energy supplier and trader (think Pepsi to Enron’s Coke) drew yawns from the financial press.   Dynegy owns 9 coal and gas-fired generation plants, mostly in California and Illinois. After getting burned in trading, and nearly going bankrupt, it became a collection of parts. That’s how Wall Street evaluated it. […]

A year ago, Mike Larsen and Linda Nelson left their beloved urban Minneapolis home and moved to the prairie in southeast Minnesota near Altura to live in a way more connected to the land. In this story, Mike writes about how they came to the decision to build their off-the-grid home. Off-grid or not off-grid—that is the question. Indeed, that […]

Senator Byrd and the Costs of Coal

Senator Byrd and the Costs of Coal

In the last year of his life, Senator Robert C. Byrd (D-WV) taught, not for the first time, the most important lesson of his long and storied public service. Senator Byrd’s career demonstrates it is possible to – with integrity – change a publicly held position. In Byrd’s case there was in fact more integrity because he found the courage […]
The Green Fields of Plenty

The Green Fields of Plenty

On May 31, 1925, Lou Gehrig, a 21-year old infielder for the New York Yankees, pinch-hit for Pee Wee Wanninger, quietly beginning one of the most remarkable streaks in sports history. The next day, he entered the starting lineup in place of veteran first baseman Wally Pipp. Although Gehrig had had brief stints with the Yankees in 1923 and 1924, few people in the stands probably saw stardom in his future. Some of his teammates might even have cast a dismissive, suspicious eye on the young prospect that day. Fourteen years later, however, Gehrig left the lineup after 2,130 consecutive games played - to the roars of the crowd - as one of the most beloved Yankees of all time.
