Climate Nexus | Posted 03.15.2015 | Green
Climate Nexus

Ridley's assertion that because fossil fuels provided the energy for development in the past means they should keep investing in fossil fuel infrastructure is like saying that developing countries should build punch-card computers for their technological needs.

The Future of Electricity 1: Why They Hate the Clean Power Rule

Juli Berwald | Posted 04.05.2015 | Politics
