The joke with which Terry Tamminen started his Monday luncheon speech was eerily similar to his talk in Santa Monica last December – although the names were changed (you can compare the audio clip below with our recording of December's event here). Tamminen is an effective public speaker, though, and I didn't mind sitting through another one of his talks.
Terry Tamminen got beat up pretty bad following an expanded interview with David Roberts of Grist. AutoblogGreen readers also responded to Tamminen's views on hydrogen.
