  1. Political views and climate change.

  2. Coyote shows how ridiculous First Solar's business plan was (hint: government subsidies) while discussing how silly Germany's solar subsidies are. In related news, Michael points out that DoE's equation of spending money and hiring people with "success" is wrong.

  3. Two new reports (here and here PDF) predict that coastal flooding from global warming-induced sea-level rise will have serious and direct consequences for the 3.7 million U.S. citizens living in those areas. (Check out this Surging Seas mapping tool to see the potential impact to your coastal area.)

  4. Lynne points out the parallels between one-size-fits-all nutrition (pun!) and economic policies. Hint: Do what works.

  5. The Dutch work ethic (or lack thereof) makes them happier. The secret? Less waste at work and less waste in government.
