About CleanTechVerdict

Born of a passion for progress and an ever-growing frustration with claims without facts, determinations without data (and a love of alliteration), CleanTechVerdict strives to dig through the jargon and separate misinformation from reliable facts.

CleanTechVerdict was created and is maintained by Jordan Garfinkle. Jordan is a passionate believer in humanity’s potential to tackle big challenges – as long as the facts are straight. He loves innovative ideas and hates the persistent manipulation of facts (or their complete omission) that has come to replace serious discussions about environmental problems and their solutions. He, like everyone else on the planet, values clean air, clean water, and a bright future.

Jordan has an M.S. in sustainable systems from the University of Michigan’s School of Natural Resources and Environment, where he was a research assistant at the Center for Sustainable Systems, and a B.S. in environmental studies and psychology from St. Lawrence University. He has worked on sustainability issues in Kenya, Costa Rica and across the U.S., and on resource management at the Department of the Interior.

Jacob Malcomb is our Research Assistant and Ecology Specialist. He has a B.S. from St. Lawrence University, where he studied biology and African studies. Jacob is interested in sustainability science at the intersection of human and ecosystem health. He has conducted ecological research with the Forest Service in Colorado, the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in New York, and the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama.

  1. I love this blog. Would you consider giving verdicts on “clean coal,” hydroelectric power, and nuclear fission technology?

  2. Jordan,
    Congrats on your new blog. It’s very informative and covers info that should be of great concern to us all. We’re presently considering solar for our home here in NJ, but there are several options available. Of course,a renewable energy resource is important for our future, but return on investment is an important consideration also.

  3. I was checking this blog and I don’t have much to say except appreciation for changing the world.
