Bits and Pieces - November 29, 2009

Some good suggestions for climate scientists. More transparency, less tribalism.

The IAEA's resolution on Iran. (pdf)

Historian of science Spencer Weart on the hacked climate e-mails.

A purity test for Democrats.

Organizational differences between the civil rights movement and today's faltering social movements. I can expand this to the expectation that people demonstrate in the streets of Iran, so far too many outside Iran expect the government to fall. As I've pointed out, using Estonia as an example, you've got to have organization behind those actions and a plan for what comes next. Conversely, it might be why the right sees ACORN as such a danger.

From the CATO Institute: Repeating that the debt is Bush's. Very informative pie chart.

The ultimate statement on the Salahis.

civil rights was a political, constitutional movement. Todays "social movements" are about distributive justice, hence economic in nature. Whole different organization.

I think there's something to that, but I also think there's an extremely naive expectation that people in the streets = making things happen.

That second part of the equation requires a lot more - planning and carrythrough.
