Here’s a follow up to the mini library post from the other day about Little Free Libraries. Check out what they’re doing in Berlin over at Inhabitat. The article is “Book Forest: Berlin Turns Fallen Tree Trunks into a Free Book Exchange!” by Lori Zimmer.

If you can’t stand the heat…

Okay, it’s official, summer is here.

Here in Missouri, all 114 counties in Missouri have been declared declared disaster areas according to this article, “All of Missouri Gets Disaster Declaration for Drought” by Georgina Gustin at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

If that’s not bad enough, check out “A Year After Floods, Shippers Face Low Mississippi River” by the Associated Press via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Meanwhile, on the otherside of the world we also have evidence such as in “Iraq’s ‘Green Belt’ Fights Desertification” from Chris at Newslook via Ecology.
