Happy end of the week, we made it to another weekend.

• The Republican party is willfully distorting research on climate legislation, so sayeth Treehugger.

• Alternet brings news of the TVA trying to hide information about water contamination from the massive disaster spill of coal ash in Harriman, Tennessee.

• Chelsea Green shares a great video of Woody Tasch explaining how industrial agriculture is depleting the soil. Conventional farming is like taking steroids. You look big for a while then you get pimples, a shrunken bleepsack, and kidney stones.

Have a great weekend, see you back here on Monday.
