Read about CA's war on suburbs

To reduce costs, California also needs to build new suburbs

Energy Reality Coming at California Fast

“Life comes at you fast,” said the insurance company ad campaign earlier this century. In California, energy reality is coming fast and it doesn’t inspire confidence in the future.

Columnist Has a Nuclear Meltdown

Even for a news outlet whose analyses of cutting-edge technologies are often flawed, a recent New York Times article by columnist Farhad Manjoo was exceptionally misguided. Titled “Nuclear Power Still Doesn’t Make Sense,” it is, in fact, the article that doesn’t make sense. Manjoo does recognize that nuclear power is important now, citing ...

Urban bike lanes no answer to climate change ‘code red’

But not in California, where the barriers to having a constructive debate about this issue are many. They start with the huge logical gap between the state’s goal to have “eligible” renewable power sources and zero-carbon resources supply 100 percent of California’s electricity retail sales and the electricity used by ...
