Tell Me About the Future

Cracking The Carbon Code coverNuclear power isn't safe. Oil and gas will run out — sooner, rather than later. Coal is, well, no solution either. Carbon, let's face it, is killing the planet. Realistically, we don't have much choice other than to move to renewable energy, but that move must be facilitated by government. If the federal government can't or won't act then state governments must intelligently develop practical innovations. Which, it turns out, it's politically possible for them to do. To talk about the future of energy policy I turned once again to Terry Tamminen, an environmental visionary who's doing a magnificent job of leading us out of the wilderness. Total runtime forty four minutes. Memores acti prudentes futuri.

Re: Gujarat is one of the strongholds of neo liberalism in India. Its chief minister, Modi, is probably the most egregious politicians on the sub continent — and that's a tight race.

Kerala is probably what you were thinking of, communist led government, no child labour, women's rights and you can get a drink there.
An interview with P Sainath on neo liberalism in India would be great.

[I stand corrected — Thanks! g.]

Not sure I consider this very "visionary." Just seems like more of the feel-good techno-triumphalism that passes for environmental thought.

Perhaps this post should also be renamed as "What Mr. Tamminen should have said regarding energy policy:"
