Energy Reporter, San Francisco Chronicle

Environmentalists have embraced this idea [about Keystone XL] that a certain amount of the carbon does have to stay in the ground. That phrasing makes it very simple to understand what they’re talking about.

David Baker sees that the XL Pipeline decision is a tricky one for close trading partners. As an Energy Reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle, Baker covers energy and clean tech. He joined the paper in 2000 after spending five years in Southern California reporting for the Los Angeles Times and the Daily News of Los Angeles. He has reported from wind farms, geothermal fields, solar power plants, oil fields, and an offshore drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico.

He graduated from Amherst College and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.

David R. Baker's Simple Shift
