With some late I would like to propose you today a selection of my favorite articles published here in 2008. Since I wrote almost 250, selecting less than 50 of them was very hard.
Last year was literally packed with stunning scientific discoveries and great initiatives – both global and local – to increase the importance of renewables and energy efficiency and so much more.
My impression after selecting all these articles is that as evidences are increasingly pressing, more and more people are responding to this call for action.
