Over at AlterNet, Grist’s David Roberts and Lisa Hymas have compiled a list of the top 15 environmental stories of 2007. Climate change is the dominant theme, with scientists and Al Gore sounding the alarm and politicians responding (not necessarily in a productive way — see the ethanol item). The list also includes stories we’ve covered here at The Pump Handle:Â our unsustainable food system, hazardous toys, andÂ judicial rebukes of Bush administration environmental policy.
Is there a big environmental story that’s missing from the list? And what’s the 2008Â version likely to include a year from now?
