The Energy Issue: GOOD's Exclusive Sneak Preview
Either we innovate now, or we face a dark future. Those words grace the cover of GOOD 022: The Energy Issue, which examines the wonder of mankind's power to harness energy, and celebrates the people who are striving to find and improve clean, renewable sources for powering our lives.
It features stories on what we can possibly do after the death of cap-and-trade, a guide to saving energy in your life, a review of the biggest blackouts in history, and much, much more.
The Energy Issue hits newsstands Tuesday, January 11, 2011, at which point stories and infographics from it will start making their way onto the site. (Our interactive Transparency on where America gets its energy is already up, and it's awesome).
Until next week, please enjoy this preview.
