Everyone and their cousin has already linked to this, but in case you missed it, Popular Science is running a series of stories called The Future of Energy. It’s good.

And when I say "good," I mean "more or less reflects my own priorities." I was particularly pleased that nuclear didn’t show up on the list and that grid improvements were way up at No. 2. I would have moved "negawatts" — i.e., efficiency and conservation — up higher on the list, and moved hydrogen lower, but those are quibbles. Overall, nice work.
