After just under a year on the scene in it's Energy Roundup incarnation the WSJ.com's energy blog has evolved into Environmental Capital. We've done the name-change on our (admittedly short) blogroll.
Here's the Energy Roundup's first post:
Welcome to the Energy Roundup, a new blog, where WSJ.com editors will compile and analyze the day’s news in the energy sector, including oil, alternative energy sources and the politics and policy of energy.
This blog replaces the Oil News Roundup, a popular feature on the site that began last April, when the price of oil was more than $70 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange and well on its way to a July peak of more than $77 a barrel.
Since then, oil has fallen to less than $60, and there are indications the oil market may be due for a long breather, if not a bear market. But energy will remain a hot topic for the foreseeable future, and WSJ.com’s Energy Roundup will endeavor to be an invaluable source for readers who want to know all they can about it.
