Environmental News Wrap: Fossil vs. Renewable-The True Cost of Energy, and more…

The latest environmental headlinesGlobalWarmingisReal contributor Anders Hellum-Alexander wraps-up the climate and environmental news headlines for the past week:

  • The cheaper fossil fuels are for consumers the more slowly we will move towards renewable energy. The New York Times takes the perspective that renewable energy is too expensive in this piece about the renewable energy market.
  • The Economist reports on the would be effects if the world reduced subsidies for fossil fuels.
  • The Christian Science Monitor provides a special report on “New Energy.” My only criticism is that they do not mention the solar lease which is now popular and makes solar affordable for many homeowners (full disclosure: I work for a solar company).
