Nobody on this planet is going to be untouched by the impacts of climate change.

Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, at a Monday news conference presenting a new report on climate change by hundreds of scientists from 70 countries (via latimes)

Yes, but poor people will be far more impacted than others. (And what’s new.)

In related news found out yesterday (my first day back at work since March 14) I have to make a statement this morning to the City Council in support of proposed legislation that would make energy-efficiency training for operators of large NYC buildings mandatory.

I’ve been awake since 4 or 5 am with jet lag and my brain is still a plate of spicy Indian mush but … here we go!

"Only Living Boy In New York" covered by the wonderful Dan Wilson (viahollygonightly)

After two-plus weeks on a 21-person #indiadventure that was in turn sublime, maddening, and always unforgettable, it’s good to home.

Stories and photos to come, of course.

"NYC, You Inspire Me with your melting pot of people and cultures. So much can be awoken inside from the people around us. People and places that we walk past every day unlock so much potential. By leaving your senses open to the wonders the city has to offer it can inspire anything and everything. It’s our job to let it wash over us like magic waters." - Dave Santos

One of my favorite chefs, ever. Hi Dave :)

Ugh all I can think is how much those homes are worth now.

At Home in Brooklyn: The Nooney Brooklyn Photographs, 1978-1979 (via meredithmo)

Working almost daily from January 1978 to April 1979, she crisscrossed the borough, documenting the broad ethnic and economic range of Brooklyn’s residents. The portraits that emerge are striking in their attention to the details of architecture and décor, which reveal just as much about the subjects as how they choose to pose themselves for Nooney’s camera. This project was the subject of an exhibition, At Home in Brooklyn, at the Long Island Historical Society in 1985.

Thumbs up: White Moustache yogurt, handmade in the Hudson Valley. I met the woman behind it last weekend at the Bowery Whole Foods and I quickly fell for the line, which she explained is named for her dad’s glorious ‘stache. The “Persian” variety is runny and very light, perfect with mint drizzled on roasted chicken. “Kiss” is thick with walnuts and orange blossom honey, a surprisingly satisfying dessert, and “Yalda,” with walnuts, mint, and raisins, is unusual and savory, great on its own or as a condiment.
Get it at these locations as well as most NYC Whole Foods.
