CREDIT: Shutterstock International talks to deal with a particularly potent greenhouse gas took a cautious step forward on Wednesday, as India and a host of other countries agreed to “informal discussions.” Under contention are hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) — gases that, pound for pound, can trap up to a thousand times more heat than carbon dioxide when released into the atmosphere. HFCs came into …

Grant Park Village (photo by Fred Leeson) BY FRED LEESON If the new Grant Park Village proves to be a smash hit on Broadway, we can call it ?Car Wars.? Should it prove to be a little less slam/bang, then a title like ?Food Fight? will do. The food fight and the accompanying car wars began November 12, when the New Seasons grocery …

Can cities manage the population uptick in a way that avoids that negative impact? That?s the underlying question at the core of a new exhibit opening Nov. 22nd …
