Surfin' the Blogs

"Tell the teacher we're surfin', surfin' USA."

From DeSmogBlog:  Some informative and fun "TV."    

At TreeHugger:  A good review of Chris Mooney's new book, Storm World.  Chris is a really interesting thinker and writer and has a great blog his ownself:  The Intersection.

Over at GristMill:  A pretty informed discussion of energy storage from a couple of real experts.  (This follows on the "NY Times" piece from Monday on solar energy which included a discussion of the related problem of storage.)

From The New Security Beat:   This is the blog for the folks who study the critical intersections of environment and conflict at the Environmental Change and Security Program, part of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.  Here's a very hopeful take on the opportunities inherent in the growth of urban centers internationally.  (This brings you to a podcast.)
