Now that it’s getting colder, I try to stay mindful of my energy usage.

The bills never get out of control; I just like to be a good steward of the environment and my place in it.

So I found some great energy and green blogs.

The Energy Collective features some of the “world’s best thinkers on energy and climate.”

It’s an independent, moderated forum on energy policy, climate change, energy technologies and fuels, and energy innovation.

One timely and important post is The Next President and Energy Policy. In it, an editor’s note is clear: “The presidential election is over, with a rather stunning result. And while we will soon begin to explore the implications of this result, it is worth examining how we got here. This piece from OurEnergyPolicy.org from election day recalls what, exactly, the candidates’ energy policies were supposed to be.”

Other interesting posts from The Energy Collective include Morocco Climate Talks: Five Things that Must Happen, The Presidential Debates were a Lost Opportunity to Discuss Energy Policy, and Can Hidden Costs Jeopardize the Future of the Solar Energy Industry?

Recharge provides news and intelligence on renewable energy.

A recent lead story on Recharge immediately had me interested in this site. The piece: Trump’s energy vision holds plenty of promise for renewables.

“Trump and his advisers are about to get an education in many areas, including the realities of the energy industry,” the post says. “When that happens he will come to understand that not only is blind opposition to wind and solar power irrational – it’s also terrible politics, even in the most conservative corners of the US.”

Fascinating.

Other notable posts on Recharge include Paris was great – now give us a big fat carbon price, Trump win casts cloud over US clean energy sector, and In New York, we’re saving by taming the digital beast.

It’s always a nice touch to use humor to break down complex issues.

That’s why Grist is on my list.

Grist is an “online news organization that uses humor to interpret green issues and inspire environmental action.”

In line with coverage of the results of the 2016 presidential campaign, Grist featured this priceless piece: Global climate activists try not to freak out over Trump’s win.

There also were several other posts I enjoyed on Grist. They include Colorado voters just made it a lot harder to pass fracking bans, Native American religion and Standing Rock: What you need to know, and Here’s something that could make recycling a lot easier.

TreeHugger features “sustainability made stylish.”

News categories include design, living, science, technology, energy, transportation, and business.

The energy section of TreeHugger covers a lot of important content.

I especially liked Tofu waste powers Indonesian homes, Dutch farmers launch 150 million euro cow poop-to-power project, and 1,000-year-old cathedral goes solar.
