Fusion Staffs Up Silicon Valley Bureau with Several New Hires — fusionlive: New York Magazine's Kevin Roose & Forbes' Kashmir Hill Among Those Joining Fusion Team Based in Bay Area Fusion today announced several key hires for its new Silicon Valley bureau including Forbes' Kashmir Hill and New York magazine's Kevin Roose.

Can Congress Act to Block Fungal Threat to U.S. Amphibians? — I hope you'll read and disseminate Jim Gorman's story on the new Science paper pointing to a potential ecological catastrophe in North America should a potent chytrid fungus that attacks salamanders arrive on these shores. The fungus originated in Asia and its arrival in Europe has already caused substantial salamander and newt losses there.

In @Cornell class, I was asked if my population... — In @Cornell class, I was asked if my population coverage ever generated sparks. I played '09 @Limaugh clip.

Building Sustainable Energy Access, from the Outside In — David Roberts, thankfully back on task after a year away from the environment blog Grist, always provides thoughtful input on energy and climate policy. He's tended to write on American policies and politics, but this week has refreshingly focused a two-part post package on developing countries, where energy needs, and growth, are greatest.

How Unscientific Ebola Steps in U.S. Could Help Spread Virus Elsewhere — The New England Journal of Medicine has published " Ebola and Quarantine," an invaluable commentary by seven physicians* who warn how overreactions by American elected officials aiming to calm fears of Ebola here could make it more likely that the virus will spread in Africa and possibly other developing regions of the world.

Two Years After Sandy's Surge New York City Shifts Toward a Softer Relationship with the Sea — Just ahead of the two-year anniversary of the calamitous flooding of New York City by the surge from Hurricane Sandy, Alan Feuer has written a fine piece summarizing how this maritime metropolis, facing decades, if not centuries, of inevitable sea-level rise, is slowly evolving a softer relationship with the sea.

Why Americans Should Fear Fear of Ebola More than the Virus — As New York City grapples with tracing the contacts of Craig Spencer, a young physician infected with the Ebola virus, It's worth drawing attention to two worthy efforts to tamp down unreasoned fears - President Obama's White House embrace of Nina Pham, the Dallas nurse who contracted Ebola while treating a dying patient, and David Ropeik's fine piece on the perils posed by Ebola fears, published by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.

Another Round on Energy Rebound — Ted Nordhaus and Michael Shellenberger of the Breakthrough Institute sent the following response to the critiques I ran of their recent Op-Ed article on the tendency for energy-efficiency improvements to be eroded by "rebound."

Can Genetics and Breeding Do for Cassava What They've Done For Corn? — Bill Gates spends a lot of his time probing the minds and work of researchers and analysts trying to solve the world's biggest problems. The results often end up on his GatesNotes blog. His new post focuses on the plant genetics research of Edward S. Buckler, a U.S.

'Extreme Whether' Explores the Climate Fight as a Family Feud — If you're in the New York metropolitan region, I encourage you to see " Extreme Whether," an pioneering and brave effort by playwright and director Karen Malpede to use theater to explore the clashing passions around human-driven global warming and our fossil fuel fixation.
