There are a lot of big articles you (and I) should be reading this week. The latest Time puts the continuing failure to protect New Orleans on the cover: "The Threatening Storm: How years of misguided policies and bureaucratic bungling left New Orleans defenseless against Katrina--and why it may happen again," by Michael Grunwald. Read it here. The latest Newsweek goes with the story of industry funding and global warming denial (a story that many of us have been telling for years): "The Truth About Denial," by Sharon Begley. Read it here. Finally, USA Today's great science writer Dan Vergano looks at the "war on science" following Richard Carmona's testimony. I'm quoted in the piece, which you can read here.
