    Hi John

    I don’t have any blog posts that cover all these subjects, but you might like to see some posts.
    About the New York Clean Energy Standards: Clean Air versus Efficiency Charges. Clean Air Wins.
    A very dense article about the various payments and subsidies on the grid “Pay for Performance” and the US Grid
    Effects of Vermont Yankee closing is included in these three posts:
    Circles of Pain around Vermont Yankee Closing
    Vermont Yankee Closes: The Consequences Were 100% Predictable
    No Country for Old Nukes. Mike Twomey Guest Post

    Our talk about carbon dioxide and climate change on this program was fairly general. I don’t have a good reference for it.

    Hope this is useful.

    I hope you can have something in writing, so I don’t need to use 30 minutes. Thank you.
