Have a little extra time in your Saturday? Watch this great documentary on the fight to keep Powder River Basin Coal in the ground. This is the Keystone XL of coal.

Two tanker trains carrying crude oil have gone up in flames in the past week, one in West Virginia and one in Ontario, as part of a disturbingly frequent chain of oil train disasters in North America. When's the last time you heard of a shipment of solar panels exploding and polluting the local water supply?

The FCC just made net neutrality official. Here's why that's good news.
Today, the FCC voted to pass the Open Internet Order, which will classify the internet as a utility under Title II regulations. Here's what that mess of jargon means and how it affects you.

It's rare to find a novel, obvious and completely benign form of energy production, but a company out of Portland, OR is offering just that. Lucid Energy has developed an in-line pipe turbine that generates energy from the water being used throughout the city on a daily basis. Flush the toilet and create energy - brilliant!

Between a strong year for hydro power, stronger environmental regulations, and the world's largest investment in renewable energy, China's coal production fell in 2014 for the first time this century. A promising trend which needs to continue if we hope to keep warming below 2ºC.

To add another dot-matrix to this picture, China is now the biggest importer of gold in the world. Why? My sources say it is because they are building the hedge to prop up the Yaun when the debt equity markets collapse and the next big financial crisis is upon us. This is not a matter of if, but when.
