Here's a good example of Girl Power: "Women Mayors Lead the Charge on Climate Change."
A long and interesting interview with ecologist Carl Safina titled "Signs of Intelligent Life" makes me want to buy his book, Beyond Words: What Animals Think and Feel. There are many nuggets of fact-based wisdom in the interview, but here is one of my favorites: "I think humans are the animal who embodies the most extremes. We can give ourselves credit for being the most technologically talented, the most compassionate, and the most creative, but we also must own that we're the most destructive, the cruelest, and the most violent." I have similar feelings as he does about religion.
