BEST: In Fixed and Variable Costs Redux and Redesigning Some for Free, I get into the details of the right way to price residential water.
Water Chats -- Firebaugh and Westlands with the guys that have 40% unemployment and a farmer who just needs a little more water for his almonds. That reminds me of Same Old Supply Bias -- the notion that more water will fix things, forever.

Indian Suicides and the Blame Game -- a spat between me and the alternet folks over GMO cotton and suicide. I think they commit suicide b/c of debt; they think they do b/c of crop failure. Which came first?
BEST: Food and Water Watch FAIL (x3) -- They seem to think that politicians are always good and businessmen always rapacious. I set them straight.
Sustainable Tuna, in the sea. Really!
