Credit where credit is due: Limits to Growth

Something’s in the air: Peter Madden of Forum for the Future writes at Gristmill that he’s surveyed the UK scene on the most important environmental books of all time, and Limits to Growth gets an honorable mention (didn’t quite make the “Top 10″ cut).

Tunbridge-Powered Energy Handbook

One of my favorite books on the upcoming Spring list is Greg Pahl’s Citzen-Powered Energy Handbook.

Missions Rejected galore

It’s like some kind of open floodgate. Marc Cooper reports at The Nation online that After appearing only seven weeks ago on the Internet, the Appeal for Redress, brainchild of 29-year-old Navy seaman Jonathan Hutto, has already been signed by nearly 1,000 US soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen, including dozens of officers–most of whom are […]
