I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it!! So, we've decided to completely nix paywalls here at CleanTechnica. But...

  • The BP story is a real head-scratcher.

    • Nothing surprising about it at all. Oil can be a very profitable business. They are literally in the business of looking for buried treasure and when they find it, it can pay HUGE. Everything else is just a distraction to them. Often including refineries and gas stations.

  • US readers should check out NRDC’s heros and villians on climate change related votes in congress. It’s link number 8 under “other” above.

    Here’s my reps (near Chicago)

    1) Dick Durbin (D-senate): hero
    2) Mark Kirk (R-senate): sort of a villain
    3) Danny Davis (D-house): hero

  • Totally agree with the story that big storage break out will be C&I.

  • Al Gore….. The man would have been President if Ralph Nader had not been on the ballot in Florida. Thanks Ralph.
