How Many Fingers Do You Have?

How Many Fingers Do You Have?

I have been writing for a long time about following the money as it relates to climate change.  More recently I’ve been revealing how more and more finance entities have been committing to begin redirecting their capital away from fossil fuel projects and into renewable energy assets.  This started with a trickle and becoming a torrent.  When this started it was tentative and…

Let’s Get Something Straight

Science matters.  While there aren’t many climate change skeptics any more, unless you belong to the Republican Party, it is  worthwhile to see graphically what is happening to our planet’s atmosphere so we can be confident of the rationale for demanding aggressive action to avoid the worst consequences that a quickly warming climate will cause.  So short and to the point today.  A quick…

First of all, click on the video below and enjoy some Bee Gees music while you read this.  You’ll get the connection.   As I wrote about in my last post, renewable energy is blowing away fossil fuels.  It’s not only a prediction any more.  It’s reality.   “Renewable energy beat coal for generating electricity for the first quarter of…
