  1. Current Events, monarch butterfly problems
  2. Monsanto machinations, GMO woes, more on antibiotics, still more California water bullshit: alfalfa really does use 20% of our water (it's kept cheap by subsidy) as water wells are draining our (un-monitored) state aquifers
  3. pervious concrete/asphalt - an idea whose time has come, lame 2014 predictions, Marie Tharp seafloor geologist scorned, but vindicated in the end (like Alfred Wegner)
