SCIENCE: Global cooling means the party's over
Baby-boomers enjoyed the most benign period in human history: fifty years of relative peace, cheap energy, plentiful grain supply and a warming climate due to the highest solar activity for 8,000 years.

Even casual use of cannabis alters brain, warn scientists
by Rebecca Smith, The Telegraph (UK), April 16, 2014. Experimenting with cannabis on a casual basis damages the brain permanently, research has found.
