The Sierra Club is working closely with energy developers to help them identify best practices for solar and wind projects
Why'd it take until now to start building new plants out in the desert?
The case for putting solar farms in the Mojave as part of a serious energy policy based on avoiding the risks of the fossil economy
Solar power's impact on the American west will be larger than the mere footprints of the plants in the Mojave desert
Solar farms in the Mojave shows how green tech can center environmentalism
Fukushima has reopened global discussion about nuclear power, but it may have altered the state of R&D at the wrong time
Nuclear power plants are huge. Could small reactors, which are a very different creature, change the future of atomic energy?
Can citizen science, like this crowdsourced map of Geiger readings, become a valuable trust-building tool during nuclear accidents?
The question is not whether nuclear power has downsides, which it clearly does, but how to evaluate its potential evolution
The mere mention of radiation makes most people squirm. We provide a quick way to sort reasonable fears from paranoia.
Fukushima won't do much to change the basic political economy of atomic energy
Many more Americans oppose nuclear power now than did in 2008

The hopes that industrial giants had for nuclear power in the 1940s were overshadowed by the atomic bomb
The nuclear power we've used over the last 40 years doesn't have to be how we harness the atom in the future
In the rush to commercialize nuclear power, proponents may have hampered its long-term prospects by settling on an approach to atomic energy that may not have been the best
