Our response to Dan Kammen & Deborah Sunter's "City-integrated renewable energy for urban sustainability" in Science. Important to get numbers right. With Lee Miller, Vaclav Smil, and David Keith:
Integrating renewables into cities is possible, and it might reconnect us to our environment with everyday reminders of our energy demands. A sound path begins by establishing achievable, near-term realities for renewables, and then incrementally leveraging these small successes.

Der Ökonom und Umweltschützer Gernot Wagner ist überzeugt, dass zur Bekämpfung des Klimawandels die billigste Lösung zum Einsatz kommen wird - ob wir das wollen oder nicht. Die besteht darin, Schwefelsäure in die Atmosphäre einzubringen, um das Klima abzukühlen. Die Nebenwirkungen dieser Methode sind nicht erforscht. Gemeinsam mit dem Harvard-Professof Martin L. Weitzman hat er das Buch "Klimaschock" veröffentlicht.

Good reminder to self that there's sill room for civil discourse in this country, as long as it's sufficiently nerdy apparently: The debate on city-integrated solar PV and wind continues. Our reply to Dan Kammen et al. -- with Lee Miller, Vaclav Smil, and David Keith:

The case for solar geoengineering research, with +David Keith :
It would be barking mad to take up smoking simply because an experimental cancer treatment showed some promise on a lab rat
