Before you head for the beach, some science, environment, and health posts from our other blogs to kick off your holiday weekend:

Geeks’ Green Dreams: Silicon Valley techies can’t bankroll green energy on their own (much as they might like to). That’s why we need creative incentives, and not just tax credits.

Healthcare Humdinger: If you’re confused by the Congressional Budget Office’s latest healthcare cost estimates, you’re not alone.

Lies Your Sunscreen Tells You: SPF 100? All-day protection? Sweat-proof? Uh, not quite. Plus: Want to get enough vitamin D? Here’s how, no tanning salon required.

THE END...

of our fiscal year is Thursday, June 30, and we have a much larger fundraising gap than we can easily manage with only days left to go.

Right now is no time to come up short: If you value the hard-hitting, democracy-protecting, justice-advancing journalism you get from Mother Jones, please help us keep charging as hard as we possibly can with a much-needed and much-appreciated donation today.
