The list - I'll see how many I actually read

- LewisThomas - Lives of a Cell: Notes of a Biology Watcher

- Culture Dish - Rebecca Skloot's blog on Science, Writing, and Life.

- CRITICAL MASS the blog of the national book critics circle board of directors

as Richard Bachman]

- Steve Martin - Born standing up

-Tim Baker - Go surf

-Stephen Colbert - I am America (and so can you!)

Gary Braasch - Earth under fire : how global warming is changing the world. A photojournal


-Jonathan Wilson. - An ambulance is on the way – a bit overwrought with the angst of secular american jewish men’s perceived travails – half way through, probably won’t finish it

- Fred Pearce - With speed and violence: Why scientist fear tipping points in climate change. Very scary expose of a worst case scenario

- William Ruddiman - Plows, Plagues, and Petroleum: How Humans Took Control of Climate. Compelling evidence that humans have altered climate for millenia. Trashes some climate skeptics; we should be in cooling phase according to the Malkovich cycles [i.e. heading to the next ice age] considering we are warming against the solar flux trend it's even more scary. Some of the skeptics should go north of 55 deg latitude and speak to the 'seniors' who have seen climate change with their own eyes within a single human lifetime...
