Earthquakes happen every day
In the past 24 hours, (5 p.m. Monday through 5 p.m. Tuesday) the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network at the University of Washington has recorded 17 earthquakes. The largest was a magnitude 2.4 temblor 40.5 miles southwest of Penticton, British Columbia.
But the 2.4 quake was barely felt -- like most of the 20,000 earthquakes a year documented by the National Earthquake Information Center of the U.S. Geological Survey, or about 55 a day worldwide.

Capital in the 21st Century

program date: 
Mon, 04/07/2014
Well-read Red Frann Michel surveys some of the discussion of Thomas Piketty's attempt to bring Karl Marx's insights into Capitalism up to date -- or at least some of those insights.  Piketty's main finding is that left to its own devices, Capitalism can't help but produce gross inequalities of the kind we are seeing now.  Making use of several reviewers and previews of the book itself, Frann considers the strengths and the limits of Piketty's analysis.  
You can read Frann's comments on her blog. 9:36 minutes (5.5 MB)

You can find the Climate Equity Calculators Hahnel refers to here.   17:57 minutes (10.28 MB)
