Saturday Green Links – 7/17

I’ve decided to switch to a Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday schedule because it fits better with my life right now. Because I’m sure you all wonder when a post is a day late…

Wow—that’s all good news, isn’t it? Perfect for a lovely summer day. Remember, if you come across anything interesting this week, send it my way.

Well… I hate to spoil the mood but on the population question it’s worth both reading the rebuttal on the site and also if you have some reason to avoid the beautiful summer day and instead stay indoors playing with a population simulation online, you can try the “what ifs” out for yourself at http://www.learner.org/courses/envsci/interactives/demographics/ (In interests of full disclosure: I worked on this interactive, which is also why l know at least enough about the math/science of demographics to be dangerous, as they say ;-). Seriously, it’s worth going through this “game” if you’re at all interested in the population question: I learned TONS from it. For example, did you know that WHEN women have children has as much to do with population growth as HOW MANY they have in their lifetime? Counterintuitive but true!
