It's a lovely Friday here at the WegoWise office in Boston, and whether your spending your Friday afternoon gazing out at sunny skies or rainy days, WegoWise has got you covered with our top links.  So take a look below, learn something interesting, and be sure to share some of the information you learn with other interested parties at the parties you're (hopefully) attending this weekend.

1. Deforestation in the Amazon negatively impacts ranching on that very land.  A viscious circle indeed.

2. Spring is the best time to look toward your building's energy use, and the best time for an energy audit!

3. The Myth of Energy Independence  - A nice longer interview with Michael Levi, senior fellow for energy and the environment at the Council on Foreign Relations.  

4. Watch Vegas grow, rainforest shrink, and islands form in these GIFs made from Google's aerial imagery.
