It’s Always Something (the 1924 edition)

Drama queen scientists have been around for at least 89 years.

Scientists often claim to know what the future holds. In such a milieu, some people will want revenge when science gets it wrong.

Deja Vu All Over again…1991′s ‘World on Fire’

Before there was Al Gore, there was George Mitchell. Politicians have been casting themselves as environmental crusaders, saving the planet, for two decades.

The Horse Manure Problem

In the late 1800s cities were drowning in smelly, dirty, disease-spreading horse manure. The private automobile was a huge step forward, environmentally-speaking.
