Man-made climate change is going to cause plague, starvation, riots, water wars (this is according to the Pentagon's own prognosticators) and yet for the past eight years the Republicans did nothing about it.

Energy costs, mainly the price of oil, went through the roof and the ensuing instability crippled our economy. And yet for the past eight years the Republicans did nothing to make this country more energy self-sufficient.

Washington Post foreign corrrespondent T.R. Reid has a bum shoulder. An old war wound has been flaring-up so he took a three-year trip around the world to see how other countries would diagnose the problem. The result: his new book The Healing of America: A Global Quest for Better, Cheaper, and Fairer Health Care.

You can hear his fascinating interview on Terri Gross' Fresh Air program here and you can also read his column "5 Myths About Health Care Around the World" here. They're both eye-openers if you don't travel, or read, much.
