Green Bombs And Greasy Palms

... scientists in Germany to make safer, more environmentally friendly explosives ... less apt to explode accidentally than conventional explosives.

That book-ends nicely with the German government's recent announcment it will spend a billion Euros between now and 2013 to protect the biodiversity of tropical forests.*

* [If Germany's good intentions at all resemble those of the man shaking Angela Merkel's hand in this photo taken at the biodiversity summit in Bonn, then their tropical benefactors might want to consider asking that the environmentally friendly explosives be dropped on them instead : that way they'll get less snake oil on their clothing.]
