Discussion of environment and energy issues is coming so fast and furious these days that I could spend all day simply reading it — which would make me a less-than-useful blogger. So I’ll try to pick a few good bits to share.

Jerome a Paris, who writes at dKos and its sister site, European Tribune, is the kind of writer I’d be if I’d studied something useful in school, with numbers and facts and such, rather than philosophy. I highly recommend two recent posts: one is a brief, cogent summary of wind power, listing its benefits and drawbacks; the second is an exhaustive, detailed rebuttal of wind-power skeptics.

Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about wind power but were afraid to ask.
