The urgent complexity of the energy-related challenge humanity faces boggles the sharpest minds. The outcome of the ordeal will be influenced by countless technical, scientific, political and social variables. One of the most important will be the public.s ability to assess the problem, which is growing more complex with every new event and idea. We see this, for example, in the repercussions of the Gulf oil spill and the Fukushima nuclear disaster.

Online, we are bombarded with varying arguments about the energy problem, many carrying misinformation and faulty journalism. Dissonance is the result; the big picture is blurred. The core concepts—fast-growing global energy demand, climate change, and the political motivations of those fighting over these issues—are too frequently lost in the shuffle. The New Fuelist aims to filter a signal from the noisy energy and environmental news cycle, and to present the daily news in context. Tell us what you think.
