Fred Wilson whose blog put me on to a number of great blogging tools and services when I was first starting.
And finally Jason Calacanis for the original impetus to start the blog.
Thanks to everyone that reads the Alternative Energy Blog, everyone I've unintentionally missed out and special thanks to anyone who leaves comments or has emailed ideas for posts. Links to the Alternative Energy Blog are always welcome and the discussion in the comments section is what keeps me blogging.
As you can see from the list above supporters of alternative energy are diverse and many. Conservatives, liberals and those that defy categorisation. Socialists and venture capitalists. Those favouring government support and those in favour of free market approaches.
It remains my opinion that promoting alternative energy is far too important to be a partisan issue. Moving to a clean renewable post fossil fuel future is a long term project, one I am committed to. I hope this blog will continue to raise awareness and provoke discussion of our energy future.
