Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
* Regarding "cooperative":

Parenthetical to the diary, but an interesting thing I've observed since creating this news alert is that there seem to be quite a few cooperatives operating already in the U.S., and many of those -- like the Powder River Energy Group -- in the energy sector.

Furthermore, there are surprisingly (to me) many articles about cooperatives in developing countries -- India, for example, but Latin America as well, among other places -- and these cooperative businesses appear from those articles to be quite significant in size and in how much they are relied on by the areas they serve.

So this article in the Billings Gazette was a nice dovetailing of my hopes for clean energy as well as my current interest (infatuation?) with the potential of cooperatives.

Truth unfolds in time through a communal process.
