Enviro-Friday! The Nation is running a lot of enviro-political stories this morning:
* "Running on Empty" (Peak Oil)In other news, geneticists have proven the existence of a genetic bottleneck in the human genome, suggesting that we almost went extinct around 70,000 years ago. They don't reference it at CNN, but it seems likely to me that this is tied to the Toba catastrophe event.
* Bill McKibben on the need for a 'Green Corps' along the lines of the WPA.
* Still more on the world's food crisis.
See? The environment matters.
