It gets my vote.  This was not covered by most of the world's media.

Don't ask me why, ask Murdoch.

John – Could a link to Guardian article be included? http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2012/feb/20/climate-change-overconsumption#history-link-box

It’s an easy read with some strong language used and Bill Gates gives it added punch. Also shows someone in the media covered it (Murdoch is too busy making money out of the destruction!)

Yes.

I just had a discussion yesterday with people who complained that nobody is talking about overconsumption or the purpetual growth model.

And I second linking to the Guardian, and to the source of the original press release.

The link at the top "media release" goes to a UBC article on acidification. The correct UNEP link is:

 http://www.unep.org/newscentre/Default.aspx?DocumentID=2667&ArticleID=9039&l=en

Or, better:
