    Reform might reveal something closer to the true expense of new energy technologies One of the less well-kept secrets in the renewables industry is the reason why funds that invest in these energy technologies can get away with offering such slender returns to their investors.

    Political scientists at the University of British Columbia conclude that Gore’s efforts on behalf of climate change have only succeeded in polarizing the issue, setting back the cause of climate action. Almost ten years ago, not long after Al Gore’s first entry into the slasher/horror film genre (An Inconvenient Truth), I had occasion to ask […]
