This article is getting attention around the blogosphere, showing how my question "you think God will take you up to Heaven after you've let his creation get trashed?" is starting to split some "religious" people. I'll take full credit. . . . Terra Daily (among others) has the goods on satellite images showing openings in the Arctic's icepack big enough to fit Great Britain in, making that yacht trip you've always planned to the North Pole a little more manageable. . . . Visit Siberia while you're up there. Take some tennis gear. . . . Fortune reports good progress on US development of a feasible fuel-cell car. You get optimistic until you hear it's planned by GM. . . . Climate Progress has a couple of good posts up, one on how the same people who sold the safety of tobacco are involved in selling the "myth" of global warming, the other giving three cites (Al Gore's latest speech, a recent report on American energy, and a CBO report on the importance of reducing carbon dioxide emissions). . . . On the last point, read here about Bushnev's latest global warming plan that omits carbon dioxide emissions. . . . A state news roundup: A ME Natural Resources Council report on the effect of global warming on New England (bad scenario, and really bad scenario), A MD Chesapeake Bay Foundation plea for more money to get done what was already supposed to be done, that diverse meeting of citizens concerned about climate change in MT we've mentioned earlier, and the different perspectives on global warming and the ability of individual states to deal with it in the OR gubernatorial race, with the blowhole fantasist Repub and the guy who's right.
