Happy Holidays from REP!

Hi lovely readers,

We know the blog has been a bit quiet lately, but the semester is almost finished for Harvard students and in light of the flurry of exams and papers, the REP blog is going on a holiday hiatus!

However, we wanted to leave you with a few links to ponder:

From the NYTimes Green Blog: “A new study shows that the ice sheets covering the land in Greenland and Antarctica are melting at three times the rate they were in the 1990s. A Fox Business News host, Stuart Varney, who previously called the science of climate change a “scientific conspiracy,” called the new evidence “hard and authoritative.” [NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory] [Media Matters]”

The poor flamingos

In Oklahoma, droughts (incredibly) haven’t affected the media disinformation propagated about climate change.

The C.I.A. has closed its climate change center.

On a more positive side, check out advances in biofuel technology.

And for a lighthearted diversion, the international hit Gangnam Style has been revamped to feature an anti-littering message to a popular beat (you can find out more information about the video creators, the Malaysian Plastic Manufacturers Association, and their public service campaign, here).


Wishing you and your family a very happy holidays!
