There was only one Extinction Countdown article for Scientific American this week, because last week had three. But this one really got people talking:

Two new feature articles appeared over at Today's Engineer. These were great fun to research and pull together:

I'm working on a few big pieces for Mother Nature Network. Here are two short ones that appeared last week:

And finally, here are this week's blog posts from Green Hands USA:

This week will bring a lot more new stuff, plus a rare in-person appearance for me as I sign my books and comics at the Maine Comics Arts Festival in Portland. I hope to see some of you there!
