The Alliance for Wise Energy Decisions (AWED) is an informal coalition of individuals and organizations interested in improving national, state, and local energy & environmental policies. Our basic position is that technical matters like these should be addressed by using real science.
Instead of a science-based approach, our energy and environmental policies are typically written by those who stand to economically or politically profit from them. As a result, anything genuinely science-based in these policies is usually inadvertent and accidental.
A key element of AWED’s efforts is public education. Towards that end, every 3 weeks we put together a newsletter to balance what is found in the mainstream media about energy and environmental matters. We appreciate MasterResource for their assistance in publishing this information.
This is a brief summary of my Science talk.

Miscellaneous energy reports:
A new US bipartisan energy efficiency bill.
We should support the Renewable Fuel Standard Reform Act.
Some fascinating charts of world information.
Some recent manmade global warming articles of interest —
Retired NASA Scientists’ Study: why global warming hyperbole is false.
A fine response to the National Climate Assessment draft.
Climate Change Fallacies (video).
Some other recent articles of general interest —
Our proposed national energy slogan is “All of the Sensible” (in contrast to the absurd “All of the Above”). Additionally we should be using the term “unreliables” when speaking of renewables. Please pass these on. US citizens should make sure to get up-to-speed with what is on our PTCFacts.Info pages, as the PTC is still a political issue.
Please share this information on to other open-minded, science-oriented people. If you know anyone who would like to periodically like to get AWED emailings, please email me. Thank you for your support.
