This is a wee bit disturbing.
The Australian Broadcasting Company has an interactive quiz on its website where you can answer lifestyle questions to calculate your carbon footprint and learn at what age you should die (or should have) so that you don’t use more than your fair share of the Earth’s resources.
I should have died [...]

A Russian scientist has a different explanation for “global warming” and predicts an ice age around 2055-2060, lasting 45-65 years.
He also said that in 2008, global temperatures would drop slightly, rather than rise, due to unprecedentedly low solar radiation in the past 30 years, and would continue decreasing even if industrial emissions of carbon dioxide [...]

This was originally published 3/30/07 at 5:18 PM, which was Friday evening, so I bumped it up to the top of the blog.
I want to talk about the environment. This is one of those issues that really shouldn’t be partisan, so I want to explore why, I think, it is.

Updated.
Last night was the night that the global warming “denier” S. Fred Singer spoke at UVM. The Free Press has an article about it.

Here’s a quote from the article (emphasis mine):

In an interview before [...]

You know, after reading about Rep. Stark coming out of the closet on his atheism, or at least lack of belief in a supreme being, I started thinking about courage. I mean, it must have taken a lot of courage to come out as an atheist in this day and age of atheism persecution [...]

Let’s dispense with the discussion about whether or not global warming is indeed caused by man and warranting of a political solution.
Let’s, for the purpose of this post, assume that (1) the earth is indeed warming to the point that it will be disastrous to life as we know it, if it isn’t stopped, and [...]

Okay, this is my last post on Global Warming, or else I am going to have to make a category for it.
So, today, everyone was gushing over the announcement that Rep. Peter Welch is off-setting the carbon output of his DC office.
