An excellent pice in the New York Times about how insurance companies, who have no political agenda—for them the bottom line is profit—are taking climate change quite seriously.
Today’s Washington Post has a nice graphic on what to do when you don’t the conclusions of some research: Obviously, these arguments are often correct. Experimental studies really are better than quasi-experimental studies which really are better than regression analyses which are certainly better than nothing.
