Investors Write Reality Check
Energy News: There's a big dose of clean-energy straight talk over at Forbes.com from physicist and investor Mark Mills. He says there is plenty of room for smart investments into alternative energies, because there wasn't much of a bubble in the first place, nor was there a bubble 30 years ago when many of the same technologies were going to save us from Middle East oil. But what's changed lately? The world consumes a lot more energy; most of the growth in demand comes where alternatives can most readily play a role; and the digital age is fundamentally changing the tools of energy production, distribution and control, he argues.
