  1. gyford.com/ – Website Carbon Calculator

    Over a year my site uses “57kWh. Enough electricity to drive an electric car 368km.” Very, very roughly, I imagine. (via Adactio)

  2. What can a technologist do about climate change? A personal view.

    From November 2015. I don’t feel any less useless but it’s a great way to present a piece of writing. If only every news article had such clear extra context.

  3. Dodgy wind? Why “innovative” turbines are often anything but

    A good read about why many supposedly new-and-improved designs for wind turbines aren’t improved, and sometimes aren’t even new. (via @undermanager)

  4. James Meek · How We Happened to Sell Off Our Electricity · LRB 13 September 2012

    Plenty of people linked to this at the time, but I forgot. Now I am. A good read on who now owns the UK’s power.

  5. Global Offshore Wind Farms Database

    Ugly, and lacking a key, but a detailed map of offshore windfarms.

  6. Kardashev scale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    “The scale has three designated categories called Type I, II, and III. These are based on the amount of usable energy a civilization has at its disposal, and the degree of space colonization.” (via The Speculist)

  7. Dailymotion - The Daily Show: An Energy-Independent Future - a News & Politics video

    Just in case you were even slightly optimistic after Obama promised US energy independence. They’ve been saying that for at least 36 years. Thirty. Six. Years.

  8. Suddenly, Those Solar Panels Don’t Look So 1970’s - New York Times

    I was thinking/hoping that solar energy companies must have bright futures. (via Annie)
