The Guardian goes global; development success stories; China v US on sustainable energy; Americans love the UN; stats made easy; emergency universities; what really happened in Copenhagen: Links I liked

Global Development website and its accompanying  ‘GD Blogosphere‘ portal  The ODI has launched a new website on ‘development success‘, with some great case studies. China overtakes the US on sustainable energy finance – who’s walking the walk on climate change? How about this for a US opinion poll? · 54% think the UN needs to be strengthened. · 64% want a standing UN peacekeeping force. · 67% want the US to participate in an international treaty on climate change. · 70% favor American participation in the International Criminal Court. · 68% want cooperation with China, against just 28% who favor containment. Series of excellent brief guides to how to use and understand statistics, c/o the British House of Commons library Are Universities an essential service that must continue operating during future emergencies like SARS? Singapore thinks so and is running a test, shutting down its National University for a week to force all its lecturers to deliver classes online. In the UK, most university professors still haven’t got their heads round powerpoint.   What really happened in Copenhagen – a 40 minute documentary from IIED (make yourself a cup of tea while it’s downloading….) ]]>
