- Do the media give too much attention to climate skeptics—or do they not give enough attention to climate change at all? (dotEarth)
- Maybe oil dispersant isn’t the most toxic stuff ever after all… (YaleE360)
- Do bikes deserve their own special highways? (Slate, via Treehugger)
- A bunch of weather- and TV news-people don’t believe that climate change is a real thing. (Grist)
