Eco-News Roundup: Friday, July 3

Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.


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.

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
