We should be on the lookout for more full-cost accounting studies to post to the list, since this matters a lot.

Subject: Recession and renewables

An interesting demonstration of both the risks and great potential 
for a move towards renewable energy in the near future.

Here's an article from yesterday's NY Times about the possible 
negative impacts of a prolonged recession on renewable energy:

Now compare that analysis to another NY Times article (different 
author) from March 6 describing the likelihood of the stimulus 
package bringing about a renewables boom:
