If you're looking for Web resources on how science might contribute to development that doesn't ruin the environment, check out the Forum on Science and Technology for Sustainability, sponsored by Harvard University. The site rounds up a host of papers, online books, and reports touching on everything from biobased fuels to wind energy in India. An events calendar tracks important conferences and workshops. In the commentary section, guest contributors sound off on topics from how to measure sustainability to biotechnology's role in promoting it. Many of the offerings revolve around seven key questions, including whether researchers can determine “safe” limits for human-caused environmental alterations such as climate change.
