New Energy in the "Free Market" Age: Will large corporations
really be able to help us?
Dr. Brian O'Leary, July 2005
I read with interest an op-ed article"The Courage to Develop Clean Energy" by Jeffrey Immelt and Jonathan Lash in the 21 May 2005 Washington Post. The title seemed to come right out of the theme of the NEM conference in September 2004 in Portland, Oregon entitled "New Energy: The Courage to Change" Without yet identifying the authors of such a seemingly prophetic piece, I read on.

New Energy Revolution
Awakening to New Energy Alternatives
Andrew Mount, June, 2004
As America and the Northern Hemisphere nations vigorously compete for remaining oil reserves, there is a quiet revolution in progress that heralds a new geo-political landscape. Human civilization is dependent upon petroleum only because no concerted effort has been applied to the alternatives. The vested interests are, of course, reluctant to change a proven system (the fossil fuel economy) for fear of destabilizing their profitable business infrastructure. However, abundant evidence now shows that such a course will not only imperil the global ecology, but oil production will dramatically decline over the next century, negatively impacting our economic futures.
In Memory of a Fallen Friend
It is now two weeks from the time when my friend Gene Mallove was murdered. I still can't fully believe he is gone. He was too vibrant and full of life to be taken from us so soon, at the height of his power and so close to achieving some significant victories in the campaign to bring new energy to the world. When I do realize he's gone, the pain of his loss is terribly real. I think of him often.
