1. GEOlino MELTDOWN - The first board game that melts (by kollerebbe)

    Teaching children about climate change in a playful way.
    My favorite part is that you don’t play against the other players, but with each other in order to win.

Illegal pot farmers destroying public forests, polluting rivers with dangerous pesticides. The farmers are poisoning wildlife, rare trees, and drinking water supplies throughout northern California. 

The marijuana boom that came with the sudden rise of medical cannabis in California has wreaked havoc on the fragile habitats of the North Coast and other parts of California. With little or no oversight, farmers have illegally mowed down timber, graded mountaintops flat for sprawling greenhouses, dispersed poisons and pesticides, drained streams and polluted watersheds. Because marijuana is unregulated in California and illegal under federal law, most growers still operate in the shadows, and scientists have little hard data on their collective effect. But they are getting ever more ugly snapshots.

  4. 18 Quake-Affected Giant Pandas Return Home (by NTDTV)

    This summer I walked through this valley when all of this was under construction. It was literally mud and some cement. Now it’s finished, and they just reintroduced pandas. Construction happens at mind-blowingly fast pace in China.

Spotted here (shared from original post that didn’t link to a source).
Took a minute to search online for a source, and I found one here, which, um, sells “all you need is less” prints.
{Sigh.}
