Our only agenda is to cover energy and climate news accurately and fairly, giving you the information you need to know what's going on and to understand the context for new developments..
Energy development and regulation are at the forefront of national and state government and politics. Climate change is a big topic, and what role it should play in government policy is a huge issue in Washington and statehouses across the country. The news is full of stories about energy independence, the impact of energy development on the economy and the environment, and the impact of energy prices on consumers, business and the economy.
