The latest edition of collected pieces from Carbon Commentary includes data on UK energy consumption trends, an assessment of the economics of Scottish wind power, and on using offshore wind farms as part of the pension planning of individual investors. Articles on global average temperatures in spring 2008, the connection between biofuels and rising food costs, and UK government energy policy complete this newsletter.
Carbon Commentary has recently been included in the Guardian Environment Network.

You can read the second edition from 1 October here:
"This fortnight's edition covers topics as diverse as Bjørn Lomborg's new book, BT's energy efficient data centres, and the fiercely argued issues of the Severn barrage and biofuels. I look at the government's main environmental proposals in the Pre-Budget review, saying that Air Passenger Duty will probably remain in its current form. In an article on the problems that the Advertising Standards Authority faces in holding back the tide of half-true green advertising, I confess to complaining about Ford advertising of its Flexi-Fuel cars, only to get hopelessly bogged down in science I barely understand."
"It looks at questions as diverse as UK consumer behaviour, the prototype Ceres Power domestic CHP boiler and climate modification by geo-engineering."

Here is how Chris Goodall introduces the first email newsletter (for which the site is built):
"[Carbon Commentary] aims to provide an opinionated appraisal of the main themes in the halting moves towards a low-carbon world. It will analyse the main stories from the world of climate change during the previous fortnight, focusing on the implications for the UK. It is written to be read, and enjoyed, by a wide but scientifically literate audience."
