It’s been a fun, eventful, interesting, and, of course, busy first semester at Hartwick College. Everything else, however, is quite dark. Some links.
Nuclear and Environmental
US Global Change Research Program, “Climate Science Special Report.”
Tim Collins, “The Chance of ‘Catastrophic’ Climate Change Completely Wiping Out Humanity by 2100 Is Now 1-in-20.”
Damian Carrington, “Warning of ‘Ecological Armageddon’ after Dramatic Plunge in Insect Numbers.”
Ariel Norfman, “Nuclear Apocalypse Now?”
Elizabeth Kolbert, “Going Negative: Can Carbon-Dioxide Removal Save the World?”
Mike Davis, “Nuclear Imperialism and Extended Deterrence.”
Neena Satija, Kiah Collier, Al Shaw, and Jeff Larson, “Hell or High Water.”
Democracy Now, “As Catastrophic Flooding Hits Houston, Fears Grow of Pollution from Oil Refineries & Superfund Sites.”
Another semester is coming to a close, and I finally have a chance to sit down and sort through the backlog of links that have been piling up over the past few months. So, with no further ado, links.
