First article I've written for the Guardian.  I very much liked working with their editors.  Unlike most editors these days, they actually edit!
The California solar company’s new bonds offer a green middle ground between CDs and stocks. But are they the best option for private investors? First US public offering of solar bonds: can crowdfunding take clean energy to the next level?

So sour it will make your mouth pucker and your eyes squeeze up! But there is one very, ...

Story
Tagline
Clean Energy Stock Market Writer
Introduction
Tom Konrad is a financial analyst, portfolio manager, and freelance writer specializing in renewable energy and energy efficiency investing. He manages green stock market portfolios, and promotes clean energy by testifying before legislators and regulators on energy policy.  He writes articles about investing in clean energy for AltEnergyStocks.com, and about investing, energy policy and economics on Forbes.com.  Two of his articles will be appearing in the anthology Fleeing Vesuvius: Overcoming the Risks of Economic and Environmental Collapse.

Tom is a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA®) charterholder, and has a Ph.D. in mathematics from Purdue University. He wrote his thesis on Complex Dynamics, a branch of chaos theory.  His study of chaos theory led to his conviction that knowing the limits of our ability to predict is much more important than predictions themselves, a lesson he applies to both climate science and the financial markets.

Tom lives in upstate New York. His interests are running (he has completed two marathons in under 4 hours), hiking, gardening, and woodworking.
