This Week in the Eco-Apocalypse

“We badly underestimated the degree of damages and the risks of climate change…All of the links in the chain are on average worse than we thought a couple of years ago.” Much more at MeFi.

Also in environmental linkage: Jeffrey Sachs has economics for a crowded planet at NPR, while Paul Greenberg unexpectedly beats me to the punch with a post on James Howard Kunstler and Ernest Callenbach’s Ecotopia, which I read on the plane to San Francisco and which figures importantly into a paper I sometimes imagine I’m working on on environmental Marxism and sustainability.

I should have a longish post on that topic at culturemonkey sometime in the next few weeks—definitely before June. I have two other papers to write first, which is exactly why I’m on the Internet at two in the morning doing none of them.
