WSJ special package runs the energy gamut
The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday produced a special report covering all things energy. The series warns that the gasoline engine won’t be phased out anytime soon; considers the newfound popularity of wood stoves and LED lights; takes a critical look at “clean coal”; peruses the latest in clean-tech; and surveys the energy situation in the United Kingdom. It also covers a couple of oily trends: oil companies’ moves to invest in alternative energy, and managers leaving Big Oil to join energy start-ups. A podcast explains emissions trading; a list of tips fact-checks the viability of common gas-saving methods, from increasing tire pressure to drafting off of semi trucks. “Think about it: Pretty much every major issue has energy front and center,” notes the editor. “There’s the economy. And national security. Oh, and the fate of the planet.” Oh, right, that.
