“Very few important subjects in American history have been the subject of as much disinformation and deliberate distortion as the events surrounding the financial crisis that broke in 2008. Tim Geithner’s candid, clear-headed, and refreshingly self-effacing account of his role in formulating the federal government’s response is a very welcome antidote. Geithner’s book is a triple threat (treat?): it is first-rate economic history, insightful political science, and, most important, a cogent exposition of the importance of adhering to the policies adopted in the aftermath of the crisis if we are to succeed in diminishing the likelihood of any recurrence.”

"Now the world must show its colours," Merkel told the fifth informal meeting in Berlin of representatives of 35 countries, which was held to discuss a new climate change treaty.
"Every delay comes at a high cost," she said.
The 750 million euros form part of Germany‘s contribution to build up the green climate fund, which has been set up to help developing nations address climate change. Germany has spent 3.2 billion euros in recent years on efforts to tackle climate change.
"In Germany we are accepting our responsibility," the chancellor told the meeting, which is known as the Petersberg Climate Dialogue and which was created to overcome differences in the international community so that a new accord can be signed by the end of 2015.
The United Nations-sponsored green climate fund hopes to raise up to 100 billion dollars a year by 2020 to help with the promotion of climate-friendly businesses and to boost renewable energy.
CEOs see greater organizational openness ahead. But as rules are refined and collaboration explodes, how will they avoid chaos, protect the business and deliver results?
In speaking face-to-face with 1,709 CEOs, general managers and senior public sector leaders around the globe, leaders confirmed that our new connected era is changing how people engage. How are CEOs responding to the complexity of increasingly interconnected organizations, markets, societies and governments? Our key findings center on:
"While many companies' dedication to social responsibility and sustainability are genuine, consumers should always take "greenwashing" (or "causewashing") into account — that is, when a company markets itself as charitable, only to draw in customers."
Safeguarding this critical zone was the focus of a recent meeting in Beijing, where the National Science Foundation of China met with their counterparts in the US, UK, France and Germany. The aim was to develop an Apollo-scale programme to tackle the resource constraints that threaten to undermine global economic development...
We have 10 years because many solutions will take at least a decade to take effect, and because we have only 20 years before the perfect storm of food, water and energy shortages (Above document) makes landfall.
The first step must be to create a theory. This would literally be a map of all of the processes and interactions that matter for sustaining life, including the flow of energy, nutrients and water in the landscape; competition between animals, plant and humans for these resources; losses in the form of greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere; the role of soil in recycling nutrients; and the feedbacks between life and the physical environment including climate regulation and environmental engineering.
With such a map, scientists, businesses and decision-makers from all backgrounds can navigate and talk together. Each can see how their contributions and needs fit with those of others as the picture evolves.
'If trends continue, we are going to lose lots of species. But the paper is about ways to avoid that'
The world's plant and animal species are going extinct at a rate 1,000 to 10,000 times faster than they did before humans came along. If that continues, we could lose one-third to half of all species by the end of the century. A variety of birds, frogs, fish, mammals — gone.
Those grim statistics come from a big recent study in Science (30th May, 2014), led by Duke University biologist Stuart Pimm. The paper was the most comprehensive attempt yet to calculate a "death rate" for the world's species — an update on work first begun in 1995...
BP: So extinction rates are higher now that humans are around. Why? What are we doing?
If that continues — and continues for many decades — then by the end of the century we are going to lose one-third or one-half of all species. And that kind of loss in biological diversity hasn't been seen in 60 million years...
But what the paper is about mostly, is ways in which we can avoid that. So yes it's bad, but the paper is full of important news about how we can make a difference.
BP: Let's talk about that, then. What are ways to avoid — or at least mitigate — mass extinction.
...SP: Yes, it gives us a practical solution. What my NGO does, Saving Species, is we take our data and identify exactly where we think the most important fragments are. And then we raise money from Brazilian conservation groups to buy up the land between the fragments and reforest it. So we reconnect it — stitching habitat fragments to form much bigger habitats...
...SP: We do have an extraordinary piece of technology for surveying biodiversity — it's called a smartphone...
...SP: I'd say things like the Endangered Species Act and conservation biology have been very successful. Current extinction rates are high, but they'd likely be worse without the work of conservation biologists...
...A good example: Brazil used to be the third largest emitter of greenhouse-gas emissions from burning its forests. But with a bilateral agreement from the Norwegian government, Brazil has massively reduced its deforestation....
...We can map out where species are. We can also figure out where they're not likely to be because we've got increasingly good data on deforestation from Joe Sexton's research group at the University of Maryland...

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tesla_Model_S - It scored a perfect 5.0 NHTSA safety rating
4 Apr 2014
The Tesla Model S is the most important car Top Gear has tested. Let's just throw that out there. A handsome if generic-looking exec hatch, it threatens to do to the traditional car industry what Amazon did for retailing and Apple's iTunes infrastructure did to the music business - utterly rewire it.
The mainstream media loves Tesla's CEO, Elon Musk, a man who is two-parts real-life Tony Stark to one-part Steve Jobs. The guy made a billion from Paypal, has his own space exploration company, and recently proposed the Hyperloop high-speed transportation system. He also used to own a McLaren F1, so rest easy - he ‘gets' cars the way we do. But, rather than build a ridiculous vanity supercar, he decided to apply 21st-century Silicon Valley thinking to a technology model and industry that epitomises the 20th century. Following the slightly tentative Tesla Roadster, the results are game-changing.
Add the Performance Pack, whose higher-capacity inverter boosts torque to 443lb ft and power to the equivalent of 416bhp (probably more, in fact), and you've got an all-electric car with the same step-off and start-line grunt as a Porsche Turbo.
Everything about the Model S is reassuringly familiar and utterly bewildering at the same time. You get in, select D and go. You don't even turn it on. There's no handbrake, no paddleshift and, wind and tyre rush apart, no noise. A tentative squeeze on the accelerator pedal is like dipping your toe in a reservoir of torque, but better to build up to it gradually. Back off and there's a hearty slug of regenerative braking. Pretty soon, you'll only be using the brakes to come to a complete halt in traffic.
...usefully low centre of gravity.
It's not a sports car, though. Yes, it'll warp like a spaceship to 62mph in just over four seconds, and it keeps rolling out great gobbets of torque until you're well past 100mph. Its reduction gearing means that peak power and torque are right on the money, so overtaking is supercar easy, and motorway work utterly seamless. It also handles pretty well, too, despite its two-tonne plus weight (blame those batteries). Fundamentally, it's a languid cruiser, rather than a thriller.
It's also an EV, so inevitably you begin thinking about the available energy and what you're doing with it in a completely different way. Responsibility becomes less of a chore. The 85kWh Model S will deliver a range of up to 265 miles, 220 without requiring you to drive like your family is strapped to the bonnet. It takes 15 hours to fully charge it from a standard 32-amp UK street or supermarket charging point, half that using Tesla's home charging apparatus. (Tesla's ‘Supercharger' stations are being rolled out in Europe and the US). Range anxiety isn't really on the radar....
...The Tesla Model S is incredible...
This isn't the America of old Detroit. The Silicon Valley interloper has changed everything.

The world’s oceans contain millions of tons of trash, much of it collected into vast gyres of plastic and debris. Even if humanity stopped putting garbage in the water today, researchers project that these garbage patches would continue growing for hundreds of years. One such trash vortex, known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (Wikipedia), already spans hundreds of miles.
How do we get all that garbage out? Boyan Slat, a 19-year-old Dutch aeronautical engineering student, is raising $2 million to build an ocean cleanup contraption he designed to passively funnel garbage to specific collection points.

The UK Green Investment Bank (GIB) has today announced that it has become a signatory to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI)(www.unpri.org/about-pri/about-pri).
PRI joins over 1,200 signatories, who collectively have around $US35 trillion assets under management.
The UK Green Investment Bank was launched in November 2012. It has £3.8 billion of funding from the UK government. It is the first bank of its kind in the world. It is a "for profit" bank, whose mission is to accelerate the UK's transition to a greener economy, and to create an enduring institution, operating independently of government.
June 2, 2014
Around 60 University of Oxford academics have used an open letter to demand the institution stops investing in fossil fuel companies.
Among the 64 signatories so far are Lord May of Oxford, former chief scientific adviser to the UK government and Gordon Clark, current director of the Oxford Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment.
Henry Shue, professor of politics and international relations at Oxford, and one of the letter’s signatories, said: “We at Oxford like to claim the mantle of intellectual leadership…here is our opportunity to display genuine leadership when it counts.”
“We know about housing bubbles. Now we have a carbon bubble, a bubble of unreal value. It is too risky to own shares in this bubble..."
In an open letter to the university’s vice chancellor, the academics urge the world-renowned institution to join the fight to stop climate change by "ridding its £3.8 billion endowment of investments in fossil fuel companies".
The letter says that Oxford has a “responsibility to show leadership in tackling one of the greatest challenges we as a society currently face”.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) recent report concluded that carbon-intensive energy production was the single biggest contributor to global warming.
Energy companies continue to search for new fossil fuels reserves, despite warnings from the IPCC that 80% of the reserves such companies have already claimed must never be used if dangerous climate tipping points are to be avoided.
Recent analysis by the thinktank Carbon Tracker warned that as much as $1.1 trillion (£650 billion) of investors’ money is currently at risk as a result of this.

One of the biggest misperceptions in our society is that a prerequisite for becoming a CEO is being selfish, ruthless, and callous. In fact, the opposite is true and the reason is obvious. The first thing that any successful CEO must do is get really great people to work for her. Smart people do not want to work for people who do not have their interests in mind and in heart.

Harvard has become the first American university to sign on to a United Nations-backed code of responsible investment – in a move to assuage a carbon divestment campaign...
...do not commit Harvard to selling existing holdings in fossil fuels...
A student-led group had asked Stanford to divest from 200 of the largest fossil-fuel companies, which led to the decision to sell investments in coal, Lapin said. The university will continue to invest in oil and gas companies, she said.
May 7, 2014
Stanford University’s decision to stop investing in coal companies may help bolster the hundreds of student-led campaigns that have spread across college campuses in the past two years aimed at stopping climate change.
Stanford, which has an $18.7 billion endowment, is by far the wealthiest and most high-profile university to embrace the movement’s argument that universities should divest from fossil-fuel companies contributing to global warming. The 11 schools that have agreed to stop investing in oil, gas and coal companies have been relatively small, with endowments ranging from $960,000 to $124 million, according to 350.org, a climate activist group.
“Having Stanford come out like this is huge,” said Alli Welton, one of the student founders of Divest Harvard, which has been trying to pressure Harvard University. “The decision by Stanford will become a very powerful tool for other campaigns.”...

Students at UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business manage a real-life investment fund to learn about ethical investing. That fund has achieved a 50% return over six years.
The University of California at Berkeley has a long tradition of activism and social engagement, but few would expect to see its MBA program embracing that ethos. Yet, since 2008, the Haas School of Business has done just that, giving MBA students the opportunity to manage the Haas Socially Responsible Investment Fund (HSRIF). From 2011-2014, the fund beat the market by almost 5%. It has achieved over 50% return on investment since its inception.

...Moyes should have cleared most of them out last summer...

Brian Clough (Wikipedia)
Bill Shankly (Wikipedia)
...The fact is that players’ salaries alone almost entirely determine football results. Stefan Szymanski, economics professor at Cass Business School, studied the spending of 40 English clubs between 1978 and 1997, and found that their spending on salaries explained 92 per cent of their variation in league position. The team that pays most, wins.
Only a few managers, such as Brian Clough or Bill Shankly, consistently perform better with their teams than the wage bill suggests that they should. Sometimes a manager outperforms when he is the only one in a country who possesses new knowledge. That’s why Arsene Wenger did so well in his early years at Arsenal: nobody else in England then knew as much about foreign players, or what footballers should eat. Similarly, Guus Hiddink outperformed with South Korea, Australia and Russia because he taught these teams the latest European football know-how...
