Boy, we covered lots in this week’s episode! Please see the links below for more background information on The Co-operative (Dave’s fave), recommended reading, news and science stuff.

Krissy’s favourite books right now are How Bad Are Bananas? by Mike Berners-Lee (ISBN 1846688914) and What to Eat by Hattie Ellis (ISBN 1846272165).

Why not buy them from Amazon? Here’s why. While you’re there, read loads more info on ethical living at EthicalConsumer.org too!

Here’s that BBC malaria story and WHO info about the spread of malaria and other diseases as climates warm.

If you want to know more about the recent Pacific forum on climate change, you’ll find it here. (Or there, rather. To the left.)

If you missed the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) science summary or the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) Hot Map last time, never fear!

If you don’t know why shopping at your local supermarket is bad for the environment, this superb Friends of the Earth (FoE) report explains it well.
