Weekend update: More research links from the week

I've been keeping busy so haven't had time to post so much the last week or so. This week looks to be busy too.
I didn't find very many new links last week (or lost some of them), so no categories. Just a few good links:

  • Aardvark Asian Databases, a collection of links to free and subscription databases.
  • China Vitae, biographical information about Chinese leaders.
  • Water Scarcity: worldwide statistics from EarthTrends.
  • Newsday report on defense-related CEO's compensation (includes oil company execs).
  • Cubans in the United States, report from Pew Research.
  • Building Roads to Reduce Traffic Congestion in America’s Cities: How Much and at What Cost?
    ... by 2030, drivers in 11 other major cities – Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Denver, Las Vegas, Miami, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Portland, San Francisco-Oakland, Seattle-Tacoma, and Washington, D.C. - will all be sitting in daily traffic jams worse than the infamous traffic jams that plague Los Angeles today, according to a Reason Foundation study.

  • Guide to Greener Electronics, from Greenpeace.
  • Global Warming Forcing U.S. Coastal Population to Move Inland: An Estimated 250,000 Katrina Evacuees Are Now Climate Refugees ; this is an interesting concept, from Earth Policy Institute:
    Hurricane Katrina, which made landfall in late August 2005, forced a million people from New Orleans and the small towns on the Mississippi and Louisiana coasts to move inland either within state or to neighboring states, such as Texas and Arkansas. Although nearly all planned to return, many have not.
