When I first started reporting, energy was a boring subject, dominated by ponderous utilities and stagnant technology – even the nuclear-power debate was largely settled (sorry, Clamshell Alliance).
Then deregulation came along, and solar power, and climate change – and these days energy is a fascinating topic from the geek perspective, the political perspective, the social perspective, the environmental perspective … pretty much any perspective.
Which is why two knowledgeable people and me talked about New Hampshire’s energy situation on The Exchange, NH Public Radio’s call-in program, yesterday. You can listen to it here.
Quick summary: it’s really complicated. And Iceland is very cool!
