  1. No, this is excellent news.

    Mark, you may not be aware of the fact that when I follow the trail to the link, I get a huge number of oil company ads. I have the most intensive and newest popup and ad blockers available. Your site has become contaminated, that is the only way that ads can get through to me. You need to get someone to clean it up.

  2. When I follow the link, I get lots of oil company ads, too – on the NYT page. I'm afraid that cleaning up the NYT is beyond my capacity.

  3. Excellent. Realistically speaking, we need to play them off against each other, particularly the coal industry versus other forms of power.
