One in ten fish are afraid of water

Charlie Rose talks to Jonathan Schness and Richard Branson about nuclear proliferation and climate change. Seems in 40 years whole continents will have turned into deserts, billions will starve and Jamaica will have a nuclear bomb. I prefer the "I'm not a catastrophist" outlook of Michael Crichton (Rose interview here), even if his new book 'Next' is a bit childish. Branson also talks about the world council of elders he's helped put together (persons who have "gone beyond the ego", headed by Nelson Mandela!).

Another Rose interview with palistinian Prime minister Salam Fayyad makes me wonder if someone could explain to me why the Israelis continue to create settlements.
