Our latest Energy & Environmental Newsletter is now available... For an online version of this issue (to bookmark), go here… The full Newsletter is below.

Rather than have our standard mixture of Energy, Environmental and Education articles, this issue will focus on COVID-19. I’ve subdivided the articles by topic. (Next Monday the plan is to have our normal Newsletter.)

IMO quite a few of the reactions to COVID-19 are unwarranted, and counter-productive. To put some things into better perspective consider this:
Wuhan soccer team leaving Spain (and returning to Wuhan) to escape virus!

If you’re interested, my two COVID-19 commentaries are: 1) Recommendations for dealing with COVID-19, and 2) COVID-19 Exposes Major Societal Failings.
[Note: both of these are living articles that I will update (and change the revision date of the document) as new information comes in.]

Note 1: We recommend reading the Newsletter on your computer, not your phone, as some documents (e.g. PDFs) are much easier to read on a large computer screen… We’ve tried to use common fonts, etc. to minimize display issues.

Note 2: Originally this was a monthly Newsletter. However, as pertinent material proliferated, it has been issued more frequently. As a guideline, once we collect a hundred worthwhile articles, a new Newsletter will be issued on the following Monday. Recently this has resulted in a once every three weeks frequency — and occasionally once every two weeks.

Note 3: To accommodate numerous requests received about prior articles, we’ve put together detailed archives — where you can search by year, or over the ten+ years of the Newsletter.

Note 4: Our intention is to put some balance into what most people see from the mainstream media about energy, environmental and education issues… If you want to know our perspective on current events, please read the Big Picture New Year/New Decade commentary.

Note 5: See this extensive list of reasonable books on climate change. As a parallel effort, we have also put together a list of some good books related to industrial wind energy.

Note 6: Please pass the Newsletter on to open-minded citizens, and link to it on your social media sites. If there are others who you think would benefit from being on our Energy & Environmental email list, please let me know. If at any time you'd like to be taken off this free distribution, simply send me an email saying that.

Note 7: This Newsletter is intended to supplement the material on our website, WiseEnergy.org. (For wind warriors, the most important page there is the Winning page.)

Note 8: I am not an attorney or a physician, so no material appearing in any of the Newsletters (or the WiseEnergy.org website) should be construed as giving legal or medical advice. My recommendation has always been: consult a competent, licensed attorney when you are involved with legal issues, and consult a competent physician regarding medical issues.
