It's 10 to 20 years late, but we're finally getting some realistic talk about what we're facing regarding energy. The government's renewable electricity plan, unveiled a week ago, raises consciousness about this much higher than what we've been used to. It acknowledges the problems and limitations of the various options -- including its controversial biomass project. It damps down our longstanding Nova Scotian fantasy of an electricity strategy based on exports and does the same with the bizarre and pointless claim cooked up by former premier Rodney MacDonald that we'll be leading the world in green energy by 2020. read ...

Wake up, Obama. The Gulf spill is our big chance 1.5.2010 Gristmill
President Barack Obama so far has said nothing about the screamingly obvious connection between the spoils of fossil-fuel dependency and the vision of a clean-energy economy that he’s been sporadically promoting. Instead he had this tepid statement on the Gulf oil spill this morning: “I continue to believe that domestic oil production is an important part of our overall strategy for energy security.” What happened to never letting a crisis go to waste?

It’s a prime opportunity to pressure the Senate to ...

NRDC

In the wake of the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, and reports that the oil has reached land, Frances Beinecke, President of the Natural Resources Defense Council, issued the following statement:

“The administration is correct to suspend any new off-shore drilling until a full investigation is completed.
