Newest Issue of The Commonwealth Is Here! Science, Presidential Controversy, & More

The Commonwealth, the members' magazine of The Commonwealth Club of California, has just released its June/July 2010 issue, and you can see the cool cover image below. Below that is the complete contents listing, so you know what to expect when the magazine arrives in your mailbox in a day or two.

The cover image is a rather dystopic vision of radical climate change, and it illustrates an article from a panel discussion about some controversial alternative approaches for dealing with the global issue. Geoengineering has drawn vociferous opposition from many environmentalists and climate-change activists. What exactly is it? Is it a solution or a diversion? Read the cover story and find out.

As a born & raised Californian, listening to Meg Whitman's pronounciation of California is utterly offensive. We are NOT Virgin-ya!

Found this Tom McClintock ad to share endorsing Mr. Poizner, as a Republican I'll be voting with Steve!
