  • A circular economy, ‘a better future’

    Calvin Frost || November 14, 2016
    Thomas Jefferson said, “I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.” Anne Gaasbeek of Pré Consultancy in the Netherlands echoes much the same in an article in the Public Affairs section of a FINAT publicati…

  • Who owns the wind?

    Calvin Frost || October 14, 2016
    Several weeks after I sent my last column to our editor, Steve Katz, a flurry of articles on energy appeared in three different newspapers.  I happened to catch them all, and they caused me to rethink my column on “circular economy.”…

    In Transition

    Calvin Frost || July 15, 2016
    As promised in my last column, I wanted to share Lester Brown’s vision on the energy transition, from fossil fuel to renewables, specifically wind and solar. In his most recent book, The Great Transition, he does touch on geothermal and hydropo…

    Dear Santa (Bill Gates)

    Calvin Frost || November 20, 2015
    Dear Bill Gates, Merry Christmas and here’s hoping you have many more. I just finished reading your interview with James Bennett in The Atlantic. Pretty lofty comments and at times a bit casual (and cavalier), at least that was my take.&n…

  • The preposterous pipeline

    Calvin Frost || March 9, 2015
    Lester Brown will close the Earth Policy Institute (EPI) at the end of June. He will retire and EPI will cease to function as a global environmental think tank. I was sad to hear this but understand his rationale. Lester is 80 and good for him to rec…

  • Thunder and lignin

    Calvin Frost || July 21, 2014
    I just sent $50 to Friends of the Earth.  I don’t know how they found me but they did.  I suppose I’m on every “green” list in the world and most of the time the request for money falls on deaf ears. The messages are…

    Coke gets it

    Calvin Frost, Contributing Editor || September 13, 2013
    I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the items that I come across during my readings. Beach reading? Not quite, but I call this “summer” column a potpourri of information. I’ll return to my normal messages and ruminat…

  • Understanding balance

    Calvin Frost, Contributing Editor || July 17, 2013
    I don’t get it. British Petroleum (BP), causing one of the world’s most catastrophic ecological disasters in the Gulf of Mexico, is still trying to take the easy way out at their Whiting, Indiana refinery. This is the company that admitte…

  • Getting it right

    Calvin Frost, Contributing Editor || May 31, 2013
    My comments in this issue are really a sequel to my last column. I know I irritated some readers, particularly Professors Susan Brantley and Anna Meyerdorff. Additionally, I’ve had any number of emails saying I’m all wet and don’t u…

  • What the Frack?

    Calvin Frost || April 10, 2013
    I’d like to spend 24 hours with Susan Brantley and Anna Meyendorff.  Susan is a “distinguished” professor of Geosciences and Director of the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute at Pennsylvania University.  She is als…
