Premier Li Keqiang pledged this week that China will "strictly protect" intellectual property rights, and special IP courts have been created to hear such cases. As does the Silk Market in the heart of Beijing, where fake Ralph Lauren polo shirts fly off the shelves.

15 years ago I started a notebook... and now we're up to Day 3 of the Iraq War notebook.

The top of the page says "March 21, 2003," and CNN says "'Shock and Awe' under way." I transcribe Wolf Blitzer saying "In 30 years, I've never seen anything like this on live television." On Fox News, Jim Angle says "someone is going to get hurt" — the hope was it would be Saddam Hussein: Shep Smith waxed poetic about "white flashes... peppering the night air" (because pepper is white): Now, Saddam's palace is burning, not the palace he lives in, but the one you've heard about with the golden...

20% of US population produces 46% of food-based emissions

A monumental new study demonstrates that one-fifth of the American population is responsible for nearly half of all food-based emissions. Popsci reports that people who eat a lot of animal protein, especially beef, account for a larger share of greenhouse gas emissions — although, author Sara Chodosh also illustrates the extreme complexity behind the study’s potentially groundbreaking conclusions.

Spending bill would open the world's largest intact temperate forest to logging

The world’s largest intact temperate forest sits in southeast Alaska, where towering trees have been growing for over a millennium. But if Trump and his cronies have their way, those trees won’t be around much longer. As part of the budget bill being negotiated today, Alaska senator Lisa Murkowski is pushing to increase old-growth logging in the state.
