List:

1.     The second bullet in the right column leads one to this youtube, with Hillary Clinton talking for about 10 minutes on clean cookstoves as she accepts heading a new stove advisory group:

2.     A new data point for me is her saying that stove-caused deaths have been recently moved up from 2 million per year to 4 million.  I believe Kirk Smith had moved the number up to 2 million from 1 million only this year.

3.    She also mentioned a new $4 million for stove manufacturers.

4.  As the head of the UN Foundation mentioned, I can't think of anyone in the world better able to put emphasis on the importance of stoves.  I though Julia Roberts was a real bonus, but this announcement seems an order of magnitude bigger.

> UN Foundation Founder and Chairman Ted Turner has called the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) “the world’s to-do list of urgent priorities.” The international community is working to achieve these eight goals, which range from reducing poverty and hunger to improving health and the environment, by the end of 2015.  As leaders gathered in New York for the UN General Assembly, they committed to accelerating efforts to meet the MDGs. Learn more about these MDG developments.
