In honor of Earth Day, I have two new posts on Suite101. First, learn about three ways you can help reduce energy demand (and save money). Also, there has been a debate recently about Obama's plan for a cap-and-trade system to reduce carbon emissions. Some have proposed a carbon tax as an alternative. Learn about the difference and see my position, Cap-and-Trade Versus Carbon Tax.
