Before Gristmill became a claustrophobic circle jerk about animal rights, it used to focus quite a bit on energy issues. In those halcyon days of a week or two ago, we published an interview with Travis Bradford, author of Solar Revolution.

There was disappointingly little discussion of the interview here, but over on Alternet it kicked up quite a stir. I’ve asked Travis to respond to some of the questions and criticisms that came up there — hopefully you’ll see that in the next few days.
