These were relevant a year ago and -- alas! -- they still are:
BEST: Cash for Clunkers -- a good example of how to hide a subsidy in green clothes, or greenwashing. Total environmental and economic disaster.
Masaru Emoto and Talking to Water -- and hearing "voices"? Further evidence of peoples' science illiteracy.
BEST: Corrupt Politicians and Their Paymasters, aka, how sausage is made, DC-style.
The New Imperialism -- buying farmland in poor countries. This trend is expanding, as far as I can tell, and it's troubling -- when the sellers are dictators, not citizens.
BEST: Life in a Tinderbox -- people who live in the forest should NOT expect to be protected from wildfires.
