Interesting stuff

  1. Read: Natural (now more like “worsened by us”) disasters are more frequent, which makes each one harder to recover from (and makes us poorer, by diverting resources from “adding” to “staying the same”)
  2. Read: Legalise ecstasy and cannabis to combat drugs crime in NL. Yep.
  3. Read: Why It’s Impossible to Rent a Car Right Now (markets are taking time to adjust)
  4. Listen: Nature needs rights to be protected from us — and Nature is getting them.
  5. Read: The real gentrification villain? Not the hipsters, but the boomers preventing new development in their neighborhoods.
  6. Watch: The French Fry King Of Rio de Janeiro
  7. Watch: John Oliver on databrokers selling your data to anyone. (I can’t find an update, to see if he exposed the “members of congress” he was targeting.)
  8. Watch: Some insights into Christiana (Copenhagen).
  9. Listen: Rethinking (Neo)liberalism? (An excellent discussion of a many-sided topic).
  10. Read: Lead exposure dropped 3-6 points off the IQs of Americans born in the 60s and 70s (that’s me…. aarg!). Related: Read this post on lead, crime and poverty and another on (modern) air pollution.
