Blog on Vacation
There won't be any new postings to this blog until next Monday, August 9. Before signing off the for the week, I'll provide links to some past blogs that seem particularly timely, again.

I'm also thinking about pertinent topics to write on in the weeks ahead, beyond what is suggested by my reading of the news. One area I've wanted to discuss for a while is the more conventional forms of alternative energy, such as tar sands (now usually referred to as oil sands), ultra-heavy oil, and shale, along with coal liquefaction and gasification. But I'm also interested in hearing from you concering subjects of interest. You can provide this feedback either by clicking on the "comments" link below this posting, or by email

Now for the links to "classic postings" (you'll have to scroll down in the linked monthly archive to the date indicated):

LNG Security (January 20, 2004)
Democratic Energy Policies (February 27, 2004)
Nuclear Genie (March 12, 2004)
Iraq's Oil Patrimony (April 1, 2004)

In addition, I recommend this week's very intersting NY Times Magazine cover story, contrasting Vagit Alekperov, the founder and head of Lukoil, with Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the embattled Yukos boss.
