    On March 23, some people will be sitting in the dark to express their "vote" for action on global climate change. Instead, you can join CEI and the thousands of people around the world who will be celebrating Human Achievement Hour (HAH). Leave your lights on to express your appreciation for the inventions and innovations that make today the best time to be alive and the recognition that future solutions require individual freedom not government coercion.

    <p>NEW DELHI – For nearly 30 years, India and Bangladesh have argued over control of a tiny rock island in the Bay of Bengal.

Its disappearance has been confirmed by satellite imagery and sea patrols, he said.</p>

      Mironov Tells Kyoto Experts The World Is Getting CoolerBy Simon ShusterStaff WriterSergei Mironov ST. PETERSBURG -- It was a failure from the start. Russia's biggest conference on the Kyoto Protocol, which aims to fight global warming, began with a speech from a top official who denied that global warming even exists. "In reality, the scientific basis for the protocol is fairly weak," Federation Council Speaker Sergei Mironov told a crowded opening session of the two-day conference Thursday, which drew more than 200 environmental experts and carbon market participants from around the world. "In the opinion of many experts, the...
  • Fox, Franz Josef glaciers defy trend

That contrasts sharply with the plight of many glaciers elsewhere on the planet, which are shrinking three times faster than they were in the 1980s, according to the World Glacier Monitoring Service (WGMS). The Swiss organisation maintains a constant watch of 30 mountain glaciers and said yesterday its latest survey, of...
  • Evolution gets busy in the urban lab

    "IT'S the wild west of evolution and ecology," says Joel Brown, an ecologist at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Evolution is operating with a vengeance in the urban environment as animals struggle to adapt to novel conditions and cope with "evolutionary illusions". An animal is said to be in an evolutionary illusion or trap when it does something it has evolved to do, but at the wrong time or in the wrong place. The concept may help explain why so many squirrels get squashed on city streets, says Brown. For millions of years, squirrels have evolved to cross open...
