Several updates for you here. First, my column this week for Energy and Capital, which is the final part of my update on the big picture for the second quarter of the year. In part 1 of this series, I reviewed the trends in financials, fossil fuels and electricity. This week, I take a look at renewables, food and fertilizer.
After that, some recent media updates. I have lots of media stuff going on related to the book, so stay tuned for more.
Feel free to send me your feedback; I love hearing from my readers.
