Eco-News Roundup: Friday, July 3


Before you head for the beach, some science, environment, and health posts from our other blogs to kick off your holiday weekend:

Geeks’ Green Dreams: Silicon Valley techies can’t bankroll green energy on their own (much as they might like to). That’s why we need creative incentives, and not just tax credits.

Healthcare Humdinger: If you’re confused by the Congressional Budget Office’s latest healthcare cost estimates, you’re not alone.

Lies Your Sunscreen Tells You: SPF 100? All-day protection? Sweat-proof? Uh, not quite. Plus: Want to get enough vitamin D? Here’s how, no tanning salon required.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
