For SmartPlanet this week, I reviewed a few (of many) echoes to my recent piece on the energy transition tipping point, and explained why I have decided to emphasize the progress renewable energy and efficiency are making, rather than the risks of peak oil and economic collapse.
I wrote a short piece for Petroleum Economist about why the next growth region for solar power may be the Middle East. Most of it is behind a paywall, but if you’re a subscriber you can read it here: Place in the sun
I wrote a review of Russell Gold’s new book on fracking, The Boom, for the scientific journal Nature. It’s behind a paywall, but if you’re a subscriber, you can find it here: Energy: The new oil era
The Boom is a very thorough and interesting read, and I liked it a lot more than I expected to! Highly recommended.
I have a short new article at GreenBiz.com on several financial innovations that are opening up new sources of capital for renewable energy and energy transition.

If you’d rather listen to my thoughts than read them, I have made three recent guest appearances on some podcasts.
– On the Extraenvironmentalist podcast with Seth and Justin: Episode 76 (I last appeared on the Extraenvironmentalist podcast in August 2012.)
Update June 2, 2014: Thanks to Scott Bohachyk, an amazingly dedicated Extraenvironmentalist listener who transcribed my whole segment, you can read it as well:
Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4
– On the KunstlerCast podcast with James Howard Kunstler: Episode 251
– On the Wall St. for Main St. podcast
As always, you can find all my media appearances on my media page.
