My Latest Column in The Berkshire Eagle

Thanks to The Berkshire Eagle for publishing another of my columns, part of a project by Citizens’ Climate Lobby’s Berkshire Chapter Media Team. Today, April 22, 2024, my second column, titled “We must make climate voters too numerous for politicians to ignore,” is close enough to Earth Day to add a extra thrill to seeing my thoughts in print.

As The Steep Climes Quartet series rolls out—the second book, Dear Josephine, will hit the streets shortly, and Kill Well, the first book in this four book series, has been out since Fall 2023.

The Berkshire Eagle had recently also listed my recent talk, “The Future of Climate Change in the Berkshires,” that took place at the Lee Public Library on April 12, 2024, and I’m guessing that this small write-up about the talk contributed to my having a full house despite the awful weather that day.


My first column in The Berkshire Eagle, “Carbon and fairness south of the border — and east, north and west, too,” published on March 5, 2024 and addressed the actions underway in the U.S. on carbon border adjustment mechanisms (CMAM), a way of knowing if imports are from “dirty” (i.e., high carbon emission) commodity manufacturing processes. CBAM could potentially define tariffs so that U.S. manufacturing doesn’t get penalized in the marketplace for its lower carbon footprint manufacturing.

A quick shout out to my colleagues on the Citizens’ Climate Lobby’s Berkshire Chapter Media Team for all their help.
