Back from my little European educational adventure, an offering on the clash between the highly developed European environmental sensibility and the realities of the economic troubles. Plus water problems never cease to entertain. More below the fold.
- Europeans take much pride in their approach to environmental regulation, including their cap-and-trade program, pollution regulation and fishing quotas. But when push comes to shove, it sounds like raw economics may be trumping environmental values.
- One of my favorite environmental bugaboos, lead wheel weights that fall off of cars, are getting yet another look.
- Sean Olson’s excellent work on allegations of conflict of interest in a recent New Mexico water transfer case got national attention today from David Zetland, the legendary water blogger.
- Ralph Vartabedian notes that efforts to refurbish the W76 warhead are not going as well as we had been led to believe.
