FDL Book Salon Welcomes Amanda Little, Power Trip: The Story of America’s Love Affair with Energy

By: Saturday July 30, 2011 1:59 pm

Amanda Little makes the case that the road to our new energy future runs not through Washington, DC but through the prairies of west Texas, where wind energy can be cheaply harvested, and the South Bronx, where activists like Majora Carter are leading a new environmental movement based on protecting public health. The great energy debate will be settled not with a single headline-making event, Little argues, but gradually as dropping clean energy prices first converge with rising dirty energy prices, then leave them in the dust.

Gore Says Obama Partly to Blame for Public’s Ignorance about Climate Change

By: Wednesday June 22, 2011 10:00 am

Al Gore, in a must-read piece in Rolling Stone, thinks Obama has fallen down on the job on the issue of global warming.

Vermont Will Become Seventh State to Adopt National Popular Vote

By: Wednesday April 20, 2011 6:48 pm

Although most states give their electoral college votes to the presidential candidate that wins the most votes in the state, they are technically free to assign those votes based on whatever criteria they want.

FDL Book Salon Welcomes Eric Pooley, The Climate War: True Believers, Power Brokers, and the Fight to Save the Earth

By: Sunday July 11, 2010 2:00 pm

For three years, former Time chief political correspondent Eric Pooley has followed the political fight over limiting the amount of carbon pollution emitted by the United States — and the Climate War is his blow-by-blow report from the front. Urgent and timely, the book is a behind-the-scenes page-turner for the green set, a detailed explanation of this country’s national inaction on carbon limits.

Late Night: Oh Al, How Trendy! And a Rush to Judgment

By: Tuesday June 15, 2010 8:00 pm

So rumors abound that Al Gore did some extra-marital global warming. Gore and the most-likely lady–Laurie David, who produced An Inconvenient Truth (can you hear the jokes now?)–both deny having an incandescent liaison.
