Hope you are earning your journalism stripes with some investigative work on the Chicago Climate Exchange origin and the role of Obama, Gore, Goldman Sachs, etc. Good story if you follow the money.
I cannot even imagine how angry legitimate environmentalists are going to be when they discover they were used by corrupt politicians and backroom dealers who will earn billions while not helping the environment.
The environmentalist who bucks the crowd and exposes this manipulation will end up being a major figure in legitimate green journalism.
Amen, daddio, thanks for the thought—I know you're a supporter (at left) of elephant—but until this new media stuff = paying readers and advertisers and we can thusly pay writers, what we do is blogging, not journalism. Journalism takes research and time takes money.
