Worth an article – my May 2010 tweets


I have been committed since January 2007 to bring you each month a selection of the latest headlines and best researches on sustainable development, climate change and the world energy sector.

But many more news are worth reading. This is why I use Twitter to share more news that are worth your time. I believe it offers a good complement to this website. This is even truer as this month was special since I couldn’t blog much.

Here is a selection of the most interesting ones. An impportant part of this month’s tweets are on the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, THE environmental catastrophe of the decade.
