New and Noteworthy (Peter Watts on the Climate Change Debate, the Digital Economy Bill, Bear on Lovecraft)

In today's edition:

* By way of Charlie's Diary, here's a great piece from Peter Watts on the pseudo-debate about climate change.

* Also of interest from Stross: his comment on the Digital Economy Bill.

* And finally, "Shoggoths in Bloom" author Elizabeth Bear over at on "Why We Still Write Lovecraft Pastiche," which I found interesting as a latecomer to Lovecraft who has found his influence on the genre, whatever one makes of it, inescapable. (Bear's story, which garnered a Hugo win this year, is freely available at her web site, and is also available in the latest edition of Jonathan Strahan's Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year, which I reviewed for Strange Horizons just last month.)
