Climate Legislation: Who Gains? Who Loses?

On December 13, 2007, in Blog, by Neal Dikeman

By John Addison (12/5/07). When Coke and Pepsi were in the middle of their diet wars, California was an early battle ground. It is a state which tends to do much in excess, including drinking colas.

On November 26, 2007, in Blog, by Richard T. Stuebi

by Richard T. Stuebi When it comes to clean energy, it’s no secret that the Midwest U.S. far lags beyond the East and West Coasts. This is because, on the coasts, public policy far more aggressively promotes advanced energy.
