Sunny New Jersey?

Pity New Jersey.  The state has an identity crisis, overshadowed by New York.  It’s the rear end of constant jokes.  Television gave it plenty of exposure—thanks to The Sopranos.  Its politicians always get caught up in corruption scandals, including the ...

The Idle Mayor

Overall, I like Michael Bloomberg. His leadership of New York City seems solid, he is more focused on solutions than dogma, and does not seem to give a hoot what his rivals think. But I was disappointed that he has ...

Algae, a new green?

Quick update--I had a great breakfast with a couple fellows who are in the green tech movement.  One fellow is doing a business plan for a not-quite-started algae start up.  ExxonMobil is even getting into the act. There are lots of ...

Russian Roulette?

At the G-8 summit in L’Aquila, Italy, Russia announced that an 80% cut in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 was unacceptable.  Developing countries applauded; developed ones cringed.  But can we really blame the Russians for balking at this goal?  We know ...

Slim Pickens

Gotta love infomercials. Admit it: a Jack La Lane juicer would nourish you, the melon cream Cindy Crawford uses would make you look younger, and who can forget slogans such as “Set it and forget it” yelled with evangelical fervor! Okay, ...

GreenPunks

Yesterday, Greenpeace pulled another stunt:  unfurling a banner at Mount Rushmore to send the G-8 a message about climate stage.  Of course my impression of most Greenpeace activists is that most can’t read a book or map:  did any of ...
