News & Views Round-Up, January 2007
Article Photo

You may not have yet noticed the small box mid-page titled News and Views, but it's a feature worth watching. Every day, our team writes about several important new innovative solutions to big planetary problems, but in general we hear about many more interesting ideas and pieces of news than we can properly address. The best of the stories we don't cover get chosen and collated as headlines in News and Views by Worldchanging contributor David Zaks. It's like a little Worldchanging news service. Here are January's headlines. -Alex
