  2. Another story of how competition helps change human behavior: one company is reducing truck idling time by posting those hours in the staff breakroom. (Marc Gunther)
  3. Hawaii is on target to get 40 percent of its electric power from renewables by 2030… good news for the state most dependent on foreign oil. (Christian Science Monitor)
