"European scientists and health authorities are facing angry questions about why H1N1 flu has not caused death and destruction on the scale first feared, and they need to respond deftly to ensure public support.

Accusations are flying in British and French media that the pandemic has been "hyped" by medical researchers to further their own cause, boost research grants and line the pockets of drug companies.

Britain's Independent newspaper this week asked "Pandemic? What Pandemic?"

France's Le Parisien newspaper ran the headline: "Swine flu: why the French distrust the vaccine" and noted a gap between the predicted impact of H1N1 and the less dramatic reality.

"Although some 30-odd people have died....the disease is not really frightening," it said. "Dangerous liaisons between certain experts, the labs and the government, the obscurity of the contracts between the state and the pharma firms have added to the doubt."

It's a historic day here in Green America's hometown of Washington, DC, with today's inauguration of Barack Obama and Joe Biden drawing an estimated 2 to 4 million participants to the National Mall to watch history being made.

Discussion; http://www.care2.com/c2c/share/detail/1021174

Last week, we told you about our Clean Energy Victory Bonds proposal (and other solutions from the green economy), which we shared with the Obama Transition team.  This week, we are spreading that message to a wider audience of Americans, in our latest newspaper editorial, a shortened version of our recent Real Green article.

See a new Responsible Shopper profile or a additional recent Real Green article about the upcoming TV transition. The digital switch is scheduled for Feb. 18 (sooner than you think), though the Obama team has proposed a possible deadline extension. Whenever the swich happens, we need to spread the word about how to keep it as green as possible.

For a greener 2009,
Alisa (signature)
