Greetings and welcome to Energy Media Society.
I’m creating this blog a day after Lisa Jackson announced her resignation from the EPA. This is an interesting prelude. I was highly critical of Ms. Jackson on my previous blog, Dirty South Bureau, particularly her allowing BP to aerially spray mutagenic dispersants over South Louisiana. However, Ms. Jackson also presided over the historic, if underwhelming, beginnings of EPA regulation of greenhouse gases.
Ah, the Obama Administration. Simultaneously pioneering and inadequate.
Anyway, I hope that you enjoy my new blog, which will feature (in no particular order): energy politics, renewable energy (the #energytransition), Climate Change, petro-populism, unsparing media criticism, Huey Long, environmental issues, arcane energy policy demystified, my perspective on being a parent in the 21st century (#ourchildrensfuture), reflections on 20th century political economy forms, solar flares, and other issues.
