Anything but water

  1. Nightmarish "unintended consequences" from carbon offsets.

  2. Congress could kill ethanol in a flash, since it is "detrimental to the economy and environment of the US," but Archer Daniels Midland owns Congress. Sad.

  3. A brutal critique of Paul Ryan's crony capitalistic policy proposals. Was the VP-nomination his reward?

  4. A fascinating demonstration of effective (Baskerville) vs silly (Comic Sans) fonts.

  5. Psychologists (and other quantitative academics) are biased in their reports of "significant" results.
