About

I am a science and environmental journalist living and working on Colorado’s Front Range. I began my career in journalism as a reporter for a large Colorado newspaper. Before entering journalism I practiced law for more than a decade. My legal career included a focus on environmental and natural resources law and service as a visiting teaching and research fellow at a law school in the Pacific Northwest, clerk to a federal appeals court judge, and professional staff member of a U.S. Senate committee.profile photo

  1. I thought you might be interested in a paper the Journal of Environmental Investing (www.thejei.com) just published simultaneously with its presentation at COP21 in Paris today.

    An innovative concept paper “Introducing the Carbon Impact Factor: A Family of Financial Instruments to Differentiate and Reward Carbon Efficiency in Commodity Production” was presented today at COP21 in Paris (during the GHGMI–ISO Joint Side Event, 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.). You can read it right now at http://www.thejei.com/introducing-the-carbon-impact-factor-3/.

    The authors formed a collaborative team to develop a conceptual solution for quantifying and valuing carbon efficiency associated with the sourcing and production of various commodities. By collaborating and applying systems thinking, the team focused their expertise on addressing global anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the production of commodities. The diversity of the team’s skills is of particular note: standards development and quality assurance; GHG emissions reduction quantification; GHG measurement, monitoring, reporting, and verification methodology; environmental commodities; commodity markets and trading; and supply chain data, blockchain technology, and cryptocurrency.
