Worth an article: my April 2009 tweets


twitter-earthriseSince I don’t have much time to blog, I restrain myself to publishing here around 25 articles per month. However, many more great news are worth reading and blogging about.

My goal being to provide you with the latest headlines and best researches on sustainable development, climate change and the world energy sector , I had to find a solution.

This came with my use of Twitter and this month was particularly intense in news and articles worth spreading. Below are the best and most interesting.
