Global Warming and Energy Policy make me very uncomfortable. Lots of people seem very confident of what the problmes/solutions are, but I am not. I am writing these pieces to try and sort things out, to formulate a "view".
The main constraint in doing this is time - it often takes a long time to dig out the bits and pieces and working people (I am retired) don't have that time. That's one reason I decided to post them publicly.
I have included sources of information carefully so that anyone who wants to can follow things up for themselves
When posting to blogs/newspapers/social media on climate or energy you don't really get a chance to fill out what you are saying so I link these pieces
This is not a blog - there are enough of those. But my email address is at the bottom of this page and if anyone sees an error and contacts me with it I will cut and paste with acknowledgment.
