For Green Chip Stocks this week, I respond to the most recent salvos of peak oil deniers including Michael Lynch, Daniel Yergin and Raymond Learsy.
For my Energy and Capital piece last week, I took a hard look at what “sustainable” really means, and questioned the sustainability of realistic energy solutions. Perhaps human nature, not technology, is the real challenge that we face.
In my Energy and Capital article this week, I support the impending CFTC crackdown and hope that once the sound and fury over bogeymen speculators subsides, we can have a real dialogue about our energy future.
For my Energy and Capital article last week, I explained the importance of Interior Secretary Ken Salazar’s new initiative to streamline the approval process for utility scale solar power plants, and looked at some of the exciting projects now under way.
Publishing note: You may have noticed that I am now reposting my Energy and Capital articles to my blog later than before. My publishing schedule was moved from Wednesdays to Fridays, and I’m also allowing at least two days before reposting at their request, which usually means Monday. So you may have to mentally adjust for time references now, e.g., “this week” will be “last week” by the time you read it here. I am an additional day delayed this week as I just returned from the excellent Rothbury Festival yesterday, where I spoke on several panels as part of their “think tank” discussions on energy and sustainability. I may have to blog about it soon; it was truly a terrific festival.
With that, on to last week’s article…
