Island Press Environmental Issues Forum
Received a note from Susan Soldavin of Island Press about the Island Press Environmental Issues Forum. It's definitely worth a look! I've seen some references to Joseph J. Romm's The Hype About Hydrogen: Fact and Fiction in the Race to Save the Climate , and it sounds like a thoughtful, thorough analysis of the race to a "hydrogen economy." While I don't want to dismiss hydrogen outright, I do think the race to embrace this technology by the oil & gas industry (and their representatives in the Bush administration) make thorough investigation of the potential pitfalls absolutely necessary.
