Start o' the week links: Costa Rica, spiders and a drying world
Soil is drying up all over the world, Google is dropping big bucks to build a wind power transmission line, and a spider and centipede battle it out.

I'm back from a two-week blogging vacay and have a huge list of great links piling up in my browser that I need to offload.
Here are a bunch of great stories you should read:
• BPA is declared toxic in Canada
. The toxic chemical compound, aka bisphenol A, has been declared toxic, giving regulators wide discretion to ban BPA in specific products.
• Buy this book.
My friend Brian Clark Howard wrote a great book about greener lighting that should be on your bookshelf.
• The world is drying up.
Huge parts of the world are literally drying up; the soil is drying out and turning into desert.
I'm in Burlington for the next two days attending Ben & Jerry's Fairtrade Blogger Fest. I'll post an update and pictures of me eating too much ice cream in the days to come. Enjoy your Tuesday!
