Researchers suggest that our self indulgence might cancel out our cleverness, as we consume more of what we save in a "rebound effect".  Which is, apparently, a variant of the Jevons paradox (thanks to Marc Hudson).  What price water and food when there's no water and food?

Elsewhere, Russia reserves the right to wage its own wars for oil; the planet becomes increasingly unbalanced; marine wildernesses go the way of all fish.  Some fine urban pollution materials here, at Urban Emissions.info.
