  • Dangers from carbon sequestration

    February 23, 2009 by Guy Crittenden

    An interesting and thought provoking article on the risks of carbon capture, popular now with the leaders of the United States and Canada. I don’t know if the described risks are true, but they are worth debating. Urban Renaissance Institute

  • Using the market to green the market

    August 7, 2008 by Guy Crittenden

    May 18, 2007 by Guy Crittenden

    I’ve previously pointed readers toward the excellent article series by Lawrence Solomon entitled “The Deniers” and I’ve taken the liberty of copying and pasting the latest column below. You really should take a few minutes and read it. The article

  • A Munich Re article and James Lovelock profile

    March 18, 2006 by Guy Crittenden

    I thought I’d share with readers two really good articles I’ve come across in the past few days that are both entertaining and informative. The first is from re-insurance company Munich Re and it offers a short insurance industry perspective

  • Notes from the US National Academy of Sciences

    March 15, 2006 by Guy Crittenden

    I told readers yesterday that the US National Academy of Sciences has assembled an expert panel that is holding hearings into the science, data and statistics that have been used to suggest that man-made global warming is underway. In early

  • Sallie Baliunas and the solar data

    March 15, 2006 by Guy Crittenden
