So here are some interesting things from around the internet on this the first EcoMonday of the new year:
Other Worlds Are Possible: the sixth report from the New Economics Foundation. If you’re looking for something to read that isn’t wholly pessimistic, this is pretty interesting stuff. Note that it’s a PDF download and pretty big.
Law requiring solar energy heaters in new homes – well, I guess if any state was going to do this, Hawaii’s the one to start it.
Chemical regulations that might actually work: the Environmental Defense Fund’s blog discusses the EPA’s new “Chemical Action Plans”.
Finally, things to write to your MP about! Here are some private members’ bills you may be interested in.
And then there’s The Tartan Day Act – yeah, I don’t know either.
