Interesting data
  1. Wow. Spiegel (a German magazine) explores how Germany's transformation to renewables is costly ($20 billion "wasted"), inefficient (4,000 different subsidies) and hurts the poor

  2. A view into a subculture: "not all wool sweaters are the equivalent of a Mona Lisa"

  3. The AntiCorruption Internet Database

  4. The story of the Europeans behind Skype and how Microsoft may kill its culture

  5. Fail: The World Bank is spending $millions on climate insurance while it gives $billions in subsidies to fossil fuels. On the other end of mitigation, here are details on the Canadian company that dumped iron dust into the ocean to geoengineer a reduction in CO2.
