Monday What's on the Web: Blogging the End of the World

Every Monday I highlight other bloggers or web contributors who are making important or interesting contributions to climate, sustainability, transportation or market transformation. Check back each week for another installment.
Desdemona Despair uses the tag line "Blogging the end of the world."  And, unfortunately, it kind of is.  The blog seeks out and prints everything it can find on how we humans are destroying our good planet.  From deforestation, to chemicals to climate change, you can find your favorite disaster here.  The name Desdemona refers to the character in Shakespeare's Othello (Othello's wife), who needlessly dies in the end because of the unwise actions of others.  

A few recent posts include:

Historic drought in southwest China and the Mekong basin

Toxic metals threaten whales -- ‘I don't see any future for whale species except extinction’

‘Code Red’ for the Great Lakes, Asian Carp Penetrate Electric Barrier

For some people it can be easy to dismiss one or another environmental issue for some reason, but after spending time on Desdemona Despair, the larger picture becomes clearer, and the need for significant and immediate action on every front becomes apparent.
