What are the cheapest ways to improve the state of the world? Teams of economists commissioned by Bjorn Lomborg suggest the most beneficial measure would be lowering barriers to trade, which achieves far more per dollar spent than any other option. But while most poverty-reduction measures are more expensive than cutting tariffs, many are still well worth it http://econ.st/1yLfrhP

Interesting. lets consider the "scientific method" of the Copenhagen consensus centre for a moment:

"The project considers possible solutions to a wide range of problems, presented by experts in each field. These are evaluated and ranked by a panel of economists." 

Now consider the difference in validity if we replaced the 5 economists (most belonging to the same sub-branch of economics (who happens to think that free-trade the best thing since sliced bread)), with a panel of 4 catholic priests and a voodoo doctor...

Conclusion left as exercise for the reader ;-)

Shams 1, operated by Masdar, is the largest #solar plant in the #UAE! It generates 100MW of #power, enough for 20,000 houses! It saves 175,000 tons of Co2 per year, which is equivalent to 1,5 million trees and 15,000 cars! Want more information about this #cleantech marvel? Stay tuned for our new #Insider!

« Mais dites donc, vous ne croyez tout de même pas que je vais vous trimballer sur mon dos ! »
De Funès et Bourvil dans la Grande Vadrouille vous ont fait rire aux éclats ? Aujourd’hui, nous rendons hommage à Gérard Oury, le réalisateur de ce film culte, à travers un Doodle inspiré des aventures de ces deux soldats… malgré eux.

Free speech is important everywhere.
Google is part of a fund for French newspapers that is donating about $300,000 to Charlie Hebdo.
