Weekend Links

  • Excellent Lane Kenworthy post summarizing the causes of unequal opportunity in the US.
  • Some university campuses are moving to ground source heat pumps.  Here in Ithaca, Cornell has been using heat pumps to air condition buildings since 2000 with Cayuga Lake as the heat sink.
  • Aggressive federal response to the fuel shortages in New York and New Jersey.  Hard not to be impressed.  In general, the contrast to the federal response to Hurricane Katrina couldn't be greater.
  • In light of climate change, should the Jersey shore be rebuilt?
