Hey You all!
I just wanted to post this video that everyone should watch. The Story of Stuff is a 20 minute animated video on the process of production as well as the economics of things. I hope that you enjoy it!

Much Love,
Sophia

This is an incredibly insightful and disturbing article from the current issue of The New Yorker. Worth a read (though a little short on who is taking action to get this changed and how to help):

Bhopal

Important article in the Times this morning about the ongoing effects of the industrial disaster in Bhopal, India:

Hundreds of tons of waste still languish inside a tin-roofed warehouse in a corner of the old grounds of the Union Carbide pesticide factory here, nearly a quarter-century after a poison gas leak killed thousands and turned this ancient city into a notorious symbol of industrial disaster.

Friends of Batten have visited and worked there — and, as the article points out, they still need help.  Post-Bryn Mawr relief-work stories, anyone?
