Mostly hopeful links

I think this article does some important work to continue advancing the conversation about climate change, particularly with respect to making the point that policy changes are necessary to address the most egregious personal contributions to the problem.

And here's a brief summary of how independent bookstores have survived and managed to thrive in the era of Amazon. I think it would be interesting to see a comparison between bookstores and independent coffeeshops because the supply structure differs between the two industries.

And now, a profile of a trailblazing neuroscientist who recently passed away. Before reading this, I hadn't realized that Barres was the author of work I'd read about gender issues in science. It's inspirational to read about someone whose life and work have clearly been a gift to so many people.

Finally, two articles written by an African-American woman who hiked the Appalachian Trail. Clearly not an easy experience, but I am grateful to hear her stories. I hope her words and effort provide comfort and encouragement to other minorities who seek to spend time in the outdoors.
