We’re experiencing whiteout conditions here in Cool Green Morning land, so let’s break it up with a nice chunk of green:

  1. Unexpected effect of climate change:  more fragrant roses, which is actually not good for anyone, not just people with allergies.  (Treehugger)
  2. China released its first pollution census, an effort that took two years and a whole lot of manpower.  (AP, via Yahoo! Green)
  3. Too much of a good thing?  Aggressive recycling and composting in Berkeley, CA has left the city with a $4 million budget deficit.  (SFGate)
  4. Your favorite green companies might not be as green as you think they are, according to a new report.  (GreenBiz)
  5. Introduced to Congress last week:  a bill that would install 10 million solar roofs and 200,000 solar water heaters in American homes over the next 10 years (if it’s passed, of course).  (EcoGeek)
