Iguana poop, Superman's lies and comedy for a cause
Anyway, the piles of snow and the frigid temperatures mean I just get to stay inside and write. For you, maybe it means you get to stay in and read some of my articles. Here are the ones that saw print last week.
I'll start this list, as usual, with my Extinction Countdown articles for Scientific American:
Lawsuit to Remove Plant from Endangered Species List Completely Backfires
Tourists Are Giving Endangered Iguanas Diarrhea and High Cholesterol
Sunday Species Snapshot: Cuban Crocodile
Sticking with the endangered species theme, here's my latest brief for Conservation magazine, which appears in their new issue:
A Blobfish Walks into a Bar
And finally, here's a history article, an explainer and a news brief for Mother Nature Network:
Who invented the idea of organic farming and organic food?
Do diamonds really come from coal?
Spill: A new play about the people affected by the Gulf oil spill
Oh, in addition to the stuff that I wrote, the Allegheny Front turned the tables and interviewed me about the Endangered Species Act. You can read/listen to it here.
That's it for this week. Follow me on Twitter for more links as they go live.
