Anything but water

  1. Fascinating (and funny): 20 Things I Learned While I Was in North Korea

  2. No duh: "Fed's move [quantitative easing] fantastic for the rich." If you're not in that category, then check out this guide to getting out of debt and then get mad at the uselessness of financial advisers

  3. Shell Canada wants to "fuel change," but I think it's a little pathetic that they are spending $2 million on "aww cute" projects. It's not just the fact that Shell can deduct $2 million against its revenues of $467 billion, but that it could take far more effective actions to improve the environment

  4. "There has never been an instance of groundwater contamination due to hydraulic fracturing in British Columbia" -- and there's plenty of water for fracking, but the record for water use in Alberta -- including a LACK of records -- is not encouraging

  5. This survey paper [pdf] explores how experiments have been useful in designing environmental markets -- including markets for water, carbon, etc.
