Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

  1. The simple fact that romney even threatened a business like that, maybe even as a joke, makes me want to puke. Romney doesn't deserve even a shot at being president, ever.

  2. To me, it just shows how out-of-touch Romney, indeed many if not all the Republicans, are with regard to what's actually going on in the world, particularly regarding climate change, and the opportunities for the future by actively doing something to make global energy more sustainable. I don't think he has a chance though, at least I hope not...
