The Week in Pictures: Wind Turbine Christmas Star, 10 Years in Green, Mutant Superbugs, and More

From the world's largest Christmas star that now hovers above the A9 Autobahn near Munich's northern gateway--after a year of engineering, modeling, and trials--to the renaming of the world's tallest waterfall--deep within the Venezuelan jungle--a lot happened this week in green. New research reveals that excessive use of disinfectants could be spawning mutant bacteria capable of resisting the strongest antibiotics, readers sent in the green New Year's resolutions for our weekly slideshow, and we continued to round out the year with our Decade in Review and Best and Worst of 2009. Find out what else happened in the world of green this week in our photo roundup of most popular, most important, and most oddball stories. And if you missed it, view last week's The Week in Pictures: TVA Coal Ash Spill Anniversary, Avatar's Environmental Theme, Best and Worst of 2009, and More (Slideshow)
