Justice Served

April 2, 2009

We again extend our heartfelt condolences to the Olson family, and are thankful that justice has been served in the courtroom, so that the focus for all those who cared for Katherine can now rightfully return to the celebration of her life, and the inspirational example that she (and her entire family) have set for us all.

A memorial concert in Katherine’s honor entitled A Tribute to Katherine: Letting Her Light Shine, which is happening on May 3rd in Minneapolis, will raise money for a scholarship fund in her name at St. Olaf College. More details are available here:

It’s troubling that the NY TImes can’t find a more worthy columnist than Nixon speech writer, intelligent design proponent, game show host, pro-life activist, and commercial pitchman Ben Stein.

In this Sunday’s column, after noting that the gargantuan oil supply we currently enjoy is largely being wasted, he concludes we should *increase* subsidies for oil producers, maximize offshore drilling domestically, and step up environmentally disastrous conversion of coal and tar sands to gasoline.

Hopefully we listen to our engineers and not our idiots.

A Plug for Negawatts

Amory Lovins interview in the current issue of Mother Jones is a great read if you’re interested in solving our energy and climate issues without sacrifice, while generally increasing everyone’s standard of living.

Clean, renewable energy sources do not need subsidies to thrive — all they need to be fully competitive is removal of the massive subsidies that currently entrench our increasingly untenable energy status quo.

That’s right, market economics and good old fashioned capitalism hold the solutions to the big issues we face, if only our “conservative” government would allow them to operate.

Amory Lovins is co-founder, chairman, and chief scientist of the Rocky Mountain Institute
