From the news that the US Department of Agriculture has classified PETA as a terrorist threat to suspected eco-terrorist Justin Franci Solondz' arrest in China for drugs, a lot happened this week in green. Some folks have been calling up the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to lift a ban on pesticides that could fight bed bugs; a study shows that the projected warmer and drier climate could reduce output from California's hydroelectric dams by about 20% by 2050, and GM announced that California ("the nation's largest new-car market") will be one of the select few where the Chevy Volt will be available. 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.
