Worth an article – my April 2013 tweets


https://i2.wp.com/www.elrst.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/twitter-earthrise-128x128.jpg?resize=128%2C128I 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.

However, I don’t blog as much as I would like to and generally write around 25 posts per month. But many more news are worth reading. This is why I use Twitter to share dozens of news that are worth your time.

I believe it offers a good complement to this website. So if you are on Twitter and like this selection, don’t hesitate to start following me.
