CLIMATE

  • Errors in Climate Change Science - Article based on 2009 email disclosures and the Himalayan Glacier issue…Is the Science tainted ----does this really change things?
  • Climate Controversies - This addresses the constant challenges we get to whether the various aspects of Climate Change present real fears - The science for each argument is presented
  • Climate Consequences - Sea levels rose nearly 2 feet during the summer of 2009 - Not from global warming but for unknown reasons the Gulf Stream slowed down. It usually pulls water away but in 2009 the autumn winds came early and pushed water toward the coast.
  • Climate Controversies - New research shows ice sheet on Greenland is disappearing faster than previously thought. Ocean levels are also rising more quickly. 
  • Climate Consequences - Methane plumes from the Arctic seabed - With 23 times the warming power of CO2, the USGS says the volume of methane frozen in clathrates is conservatively twice the volume of all known fossil fuels on earth.
  • Climate Policy - Impacts on Natural Habitat for the United States of America PLoS ONE, 4 (8) DOI
  • Climate Consequences - Arctic ice extent declining more slowly in 2009 than during the same period in 2007 and 2008, primarily due to a recent atmospheric circulation pattern. More here

LEGISLATION / LEGAL

  • Corporate Citizenship -  Important to All Causes :We need an amendment that abolishes the legal fiction of corporate personhood and returns corporations to being business entities whose charters can be revoked by government if they misbehave. Read Corporations aren't People.
  • The Wrong Kind of Green - about the co-opting of green interests by the corporate entities that are the polluters
  • American Clean Energy Leadership Act (S. 1462). This legislation contains a renewable electricity standard (RES) that would require 15% of US electricity be generated from solar and other renewable resources by 2021. This target falls short of the President's goal; he has called for 25% renewable electricity by 2025. Two senators - Tom Udall of New Mexico and Byron Dorgan of North Dakota - are planning amendments that would strengthen the RES. Senator Udall's amendment (S. 433) would match President Obama's goal of 25% renewable electricity by 2025. Senator Dorgan has not yet introduced his amendment, but has promised to do so shortly after recess.
