It's worthwhile to set aside some time, and read as much of it as you can.
  • A prominent scientist has issued a warning for governments to evacuate the west coasts of North and South America because of the disaster at Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2013/11/04/david-suzuki-fukushima-warning_n_4213061.htmlObviously governments are not going to do this.
