Eco-News Roundup: Thursday September 24

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


Stories and news from our blogs and elsewhere you might have missed.

Power of Fear: Just fear of medical malpractice lawsuits costs $60 billion a year.

The Problem With Frogs: Despite climate change metaphors, they will jump out when the water gets hot. Us, not so much.

European Education: If we can learn from the EU’s cap-and-trade system, so much the better.

Chart of the Day: Number of Americans without insurance are increasing, as is cost of care.

Nuclear Shift: Obama’s address spurred hopes his nuclear policy will oppose Bush’s.

Girl Anatomy: Liv dolls are more anatomically correct than Barbies, but still sexist.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
