A Couple Of Stories For Folks To Check.

“Not all renewables are created equal” - By Tom Butler. A post at, the author does an excellent job of questioning if we are developing the renewable energy industry correctly. Since I live next to one of the largest wind projects in Iowa, I could really identify with this one.  Mr. Butler was discussing the reaction to the book he coedited - ENERGY:Overdevelopment and the Delusion of Endless Growth 

A quote from the grist article - "I’ve found that some green power advocates want to keep it superficial (fossil fuels = bad, renewables = good) rather than digging into tougher questions about appropriate scale and centralized, corporate control of energy resources, including renewables. I am not unsympathetic to the arguments of well-meaning activists who say we can’t let the perfect be the enemy of the “less unsustainable,”

And that kind of ties in with -

The Sierra club posted this article provocatively titled   Warren Buffett's Coal Problem -To run his coal trains, the billionaire investor needs to seize land from a bunch of Montana cowboys. That's not going over very well.”
