Overload: New Gulf Oil Spill, Knut Is Dead, and More

by Ben Jervey

March 24, 2011

There appears to be a new oil spill in the Gulf, and it's already rolling up on beaches. Rocky Kistner is on top of it.

The "real cost of nuclear power" is hard-hitting, sober, and, according to some friends in the nuclear field, pretty damn spot-on.

The Atlantic's "The Future of Energy" package is a delight. Treat after treat after treat. Today, the new nuclear reality.

A boat company that used to oppose the project is now offering eco-tours of the Cape Wind site. Sign me up!

Knut, Germany's famous polar bear, is dead. Am I awful for not caring?

Overload is a daily round-up of what we're reading at GOOD Environment HQ.
