Here’s some great posts we’ve come across from our friends and fellow DeSmoggers (p.s. if you want to be added to our blogroll, drop me a line at: desmogblog[at]gmail.com):

At Ecotality Blog, Adam Seigel writes:

Amid the discussions of Global Warming today and in the years to come, vigilance to language, to framing, to nuance is and will remain an imperative as we seek a path forward to a sustainable and prosperous energy future (Energize America).

Over at Framing Science, Matt writes:

The Sunday Washington Post leads with a story that greenhouse gas mitigation proposals in Congress are likely to stall, in part because several key lawmakers believe (or at least claim) that the public will not support the economic impacts associated with the proposals.

At Foreign Policy’s Climate Change Blog, Bill writes:

Congestion pricing, a rollicking success story in London, Stockholm and Singapore, may have taken a massive hit yesterday when the NY State Legislature declined to advance the legislation necessary for New York City to proceed, and to meet a federal deadline for funding.

Eli over at Rabbett Run writes:

There is a long history of Al Gore being right on many issues and being ridiculed for it. Such things are known as AlGorithms and are recited at night by good little girls and boys in the right households.

Chris Mooney a talks about his new book Storm World:

Much ink is starting to get spilt about Storm World. Arguably the book’s best review yet appears in the LA Times today by Thomas Hayden.
