Speed blogging

  • Local control over forest resources improves sustainability.

  • The Cost of Energy has good stuff on politics. This post details a GMU professor and climate skeptic who plagiarized and made up data. Whoops!

  • Speaking of energy, Saudi Arabia is moving to raise water prices from their current level of 99.6% subsidy. It may be possible to spend oil to get water, but it's expensive.

  • Speaking of blogs, here are 30 that "cover" water, including this one. I was annoyed to see that many were neither blogs, nor up to date.

  • Why not? On the Public Record gives good advice: Don't blog unless you love it. The California Farm Water coalition "blog" fails that test. Their "blog" is just a bunch of news clippings. Better to read aquafornia. (Small bitch: OTPR went on holiday and shut off comments. I removed it from the list of awesome blogs because its awesome is too infrequent.)

I'm blogging on finance and water:

The most recent post touches on the underpricing of water -- it's mostly about a recent report, with risks to water bonds from water supply.

Mathewfrank: as far as I can tell, you have no RSS feed, and that's my sole means of tracking blogs these days...
