For those with access to the Wall Street Journal, there is an excellent
special report about alternative energy sources in today's issue. (Web
http://tinyurl.com/ynmddx) Very good survey of the state of the technology,
pricing, infrastructure, etc. of various alternatives to fossil fuels. One
of the articles profiles Hal Harvey of the Hewlitt Foundation, a key funding
source for alternative energy technologies (Hewlitt website on Harvey:
http://www.hewlett.org/Programs/Environment/Staff/hharvey.htm), and a think
tank funded by Hewlitt, the Energy Foundation (http://www.ef.org/). Energy
Foundation focuses its policy-making efforts on local / regional
emissions-reduction programs, using the states as "laboratories" for broader
regulation -- a classic conservative / centrist approach to regulatory
policy. (See here:
http://www.ef.org/programs_highlights.cfm?program=climate) At the same time
they advocate for policies that would promote alternative energy sources (

Looks like some good information on the legal / regulatory / economic
aspects of the global warming question.
