Can skyscrapers be bird-friendly? Can we talk about climate change? Can we compost dog waste? Yes we can, yes we can, yes we can, kids — all in this morning’s Coolness. Happy weekend!

  1. PETA gives a new 82-story Chicago skyscraper an award for being friendly to birds — incorporating design elements that will minimize bird strikes, reports the Chicago Tribune. (Hat tip: 10,000 Birds.)
  2. If you feed sustainably fished anchovies to other fish on unsustainable fish farms, are they still sustainable? Blogfish ponders.
  3. How to talk about climate change? Ecopolitology says there are great lessons to be learned from the debate over the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.
  4. Companies that are calling themselves “green” are feeling less scrutiny about those claims, according to a new report in this morning’s Environmental Leader.
  5. Can dog waste — a huge pollutant problem for some urban watersheds — be composted? Ithaca, NY is trying to find out, says Green Inc.
