This book is simply not good science, nor is it an honest review of the good science being done in this field.
Please read rebuttals from people actually doing work in climate science:
Koonin uses stale data, misinterprets it, and blows the significance of the misinterpreted data out of proportion.
In the words of Wolfgang Pauli, the arguments in this book are "not even wrong."
It is my great pleasure to announce that I have joined the advisory board of Albo Systems, a TechStars-incubated, Tel Aviv-based start-up that uses high-resolution satellite imagery and cutting-edge AI technology to help human civilization meet the challenge of climate change.
Albo leverages Israeli prowess in AI to rapidly assess the carbon sequestration capacity of a broad range of ecosystems — everything from forests to grasslands to wetlands to oceanic kelp farms — and to identify methane leaks from pipelines and processing facilities.
With burgeoning corporate demand for carbon credits based on Nature-Based Solutions (e.g., forestry, land-use, and habitat preservation…
This article is one in a series investigating the importance of modernizing and decarbonizing the electric grid.
If you want to understand the issue in context, see the article Grid Modernization; for cutting-edge experts’ take on the topic, see the article Here Is How To Create A Clean, Resilient Electrical Grid. In the latter article, I touch on the topic of the present article, Virtual Power Plants (VPPs).
For a look at an innovative company spun out of Stanford University’s labs that have developed a battery with tremendous potential for providing grid storage, see the article, Enervenue: The Batteries We…
This article is one in a series investigating the importance of modernizing and decarbonizing the electric grid. The company we feature in this article — American Superconductor AMSC — is working on improving current grid infrastructure as part of a multi-decade transition upon which we are just embarking.

In ClimateTech Update articles, I pass along the latest news about companies and topics I have featured in previous columns.
Spring is here and the ClimateTech world is springing to life! This month’s update covers announcements from:
In addition, I also update readers about my article related to Bill Nordhaus’s DICE model
The good folks at Bluesource, North America’s largest carbon credit developer and retailer, were a terrific resource for me when I wrote my series about carbon credits (Article 1, Article 2, Article 3).
There is a lot…
This article is an installment of my column’s Climate Catalysts feature. Climate Catalyst articles highlight cutting edge research into climate science and its implication on economics and investing.
This month, rather than covering a climate science paper, I feature an economics paper that quantifies the value of our ecosystem and of the losses our civilization accrues through the same kinds of poorly planned, executed, and subsidized activities that have led to climate change.
This article is one in a series investigating the importance of modernizing and decarbonizing the electric grid. If you want to understand the issue in context, see our article, Grid Modernization. For a look at an innovative company spun out of Stanford University’s labs that have developed a battery with tremendous potential for providing grid storage, please see our article, Enervenue: The Batteries We Need for Grid-Scale Storage. For a big picture view of why grid evolution is such an important topic, please see my article Texas Energy Failure: A Prelude Of What’s To Come.
My home state of Texas experienced a massive failure in public energy infrastructure during last week’s historic cold snap. This failure represents a prelude in two ways — one trivial, one profound.
First for the trivial…
The misery Texans are experiencing now at the hands of their aging electrical system serves as the perfect prelude to a deeply researched series of articles regarding Grid Evolution I have been working for the last few months.

This article is the first installment of my column’s new feature, ClimateTech Updates. In ClimateTech Update articles, I pass along the latest news about companies I have featured in previous columns.
The inaugural update covers:
I wrote about this amazing company last August in the article Using Big Data And The Power Of Markets To Solve Climate Change.
