A very small selection of this week’s interesting blog posts:

- Ezra Klein examines some of the many health- and environment-related amendments added to the Senate budget bill, and invites readers to help him dig through the amendments list.
- Lisa Suatoni at SwitchboardÂ applauds three US actions addressing the problem of ocean acidification.
