Anything but water

  1. True: "It seems that the most fearful people in our country are those who don't travel and are metaphorically barricaded in America... We end up afraid of things we shouldn't be and ignoring things that threaten our society, such as climate change and the growing gap between rich and poor"

  2. Want to save the climate? End subsidies of $550 billion to fossil fuels

  3. PDFs from the EU: "How to communicate the risks of population growth?" and "Five principles to guide knowledge exchange in environmental management"

  4. Great TED talks on "The Global War on Drugs [FAIL]" and "The Social Progress Index [as a alternative for GDP]"

  5. Has life improved since 1989 for the people of Eastern Europe? Two economists say yes [pdf], but this reporter disagrees with them (his original analysis). I side with the economists, mostly due to the "freedoms" that do not appear in GDP statistics
