Modest Climate Change Goals

Modest Climate Change GoalThe U.N. Climate Conference is going on in Paris, and maybe everyone will agree to modest means-based reductions in carbon emissions at some point in the future.

Rupert Murdoch’s National Geographic

Rupert Murdoch's National GeographicI was bummed when I heard Rupert Murdoch was purchasing National Geographic. I haven’t read it regularly in years, but it was a huge part of my childhood; right up there with “Highlights” and “MAD” magazine. Now that it’s owned by a climate change skeptic who’s also the progenitor of toxic cable and tabloid news, I won’t be picking it up the next time I’m waiting at the dentist’s office.
