Two weeks ago I did a phone interview with Bill Paul of Energy Tech Stocks. Bill’s a long time WSJ reporter who got out in time before Rupert Murdoch swooped in, as well as a long time environmental journalist. As such he interviews those of us whose job it is to have views about what’s going on in Cleantech and presents those opinions in a readable and engaging way. He also has this addictive trick of breaking up interviews into several parts and leaving you with a cliffhanger.
Bill’s first installment showed up in my feed reader last night. He had some nice things to say about me and AltEnergyStocks, followed by a short recap of some ideas for investing in utility scale batteries which I go into in more detail here.
He got a few choice quotes out of me showing just how rabid I am about global warming and peak oil. “We’re out of time for dealing with the effects of climate change," for instance. Traditional reporters still have a few tricks we bloggers with opinions could stand to learn, such as getting interviewees to open up.
