My tell-all, or tell-some, account of arguing with industry

The new issue of In Business magazine just hit the streets, and it includes an article penned by me which tells the story of my work with the National Petroleum Council on their new report called Hard Truths. This was an interesting assignment, since it gave me a chance to sit down and discuss issues with representatives of companies on whom we heap opprobrium for damaging the environment, such as Exxon.

I agreed to participate under the "Chatham House Rule" whereby the name or affiliation of the person quoted isn't revealed to allow for frank and open debate (and boy did we have frank and open debates), but I hope the brief tale is interesting even without such juicy details.
