    U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice this week issued a blistering rebuke of Russia, China and other countries that blocked the Security Council from adopting a statement linking the threat of climate change to international peace and security. During the Security Council’s first formal debate in four years on the environment Wednesday, Russia was not swayed by Western nations led by Germany, this month's council president, insisting that the 15-nation panel needs to respond to the effects that climate change has had on Sudan's Darfur region and in Somalia, where the United Nations say famine had struck two...
  • Palin Pitching A 'TV Docudrama' To Major Networks (about Alaska, not her family)

    Sarah Palin and reality show producer Marc Burnett have reportedly been shopping around a TV docudrama in Hollywood this week. Disappointingly, the subject will not be Bristol-Levi baby drama, or a look at Palin’s nascent comedy career, but rather… Alaska. One source described the show as a “planet-Earth type look” at the former governor’s home state. Palin and Burnett were seen leaving ABC today, Entertainment Weekly reported, and have met with Fox and CBS execs already. The pair will reportedly talk with NBC Universal TV Chairman Jeff Gaspin tomorrow...

  • Greenpeace founder now backs nuclear power (says no proof humans cause Global warming)

    Greenpeace founder Patrick Moore says there is no proof global warming is caused by humans, but it is likely enough that the world should turn to nuclear power - a concept tied closely to the underground nuclear testing his former environmental group formed to oppose. The chemistry of the atmosphere is changing, and there is a high-enough risk that "true believers" like Al Gore are right that world economies need to wean themselves off fossil fuels to reduce greenhouse gases, he said.

    NEW YORK - Steve Tarpin can bake a graham cracker crust in his sleep, but explaining why the price for his Key lime pies went from $20 to $25 required mastering a thornier topic: global economics. He recently wrote a letter to his customers and posted it near the cash register listing the factors — dairy prices driven higher by conglomerates buying up milk supplies, heat waves in Europe and California, demand from emerging markets and the weak dollar

    The idea of turning farms into fuel plants seemed, for a time, like one of the answers to high global oil prices and supply worries. That strategy seemed to reach a high point last year when Congress mandated a fivefold increase in the use of biofuels. But now a reaction is building against policies in the United States and Europe to promote ethanol and similar fuels, with political leaders from poor countries contending that these fuels are driving up food prices and starving poor people. Biofuels are fast becoming a new flash point in global diplomacy, putting pressure on Western...

    CANBERRA (Reuters) - Rising temperatures will leave millions more people hungry by 2080 and cause critical water shortages in China and Australia, as well as parts of Europe and the United States, according to a new global climate report. By the end of the century, climate change will bring water scarcity to between 1.1 and 3.2 billion people as temperatures rise by 2 to 3 Celsius (3.6 to 4.8 Fahrenheit), a leaked draft of an Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report said. The report, due for release in April but detailed in The Age newspaper, said an additional 200...

    Wisconsin's a great place to live, and we love it. The idyllic summers and sparkling lakes, the dramatic pageant of the seasons between the spectacular geography and the varied weather, our state is a terrific place to grow food, raise a family and enjoy life outdoors. But all that's changing. We had a handful of unprecedented air-quality alerts last summer. And one day with 28 tornadoes. We've been seeing record-setting temperatures. And a growing infiltration of pests, from purple loosestrife to the gypsy moth and coming soon the emerald ash borer. These phenomena have two things in common: One, they...

    US Newswire WASHINGTON, Aug. 12 Contrary to popular myth the Earth is not warming significantly, according to new research published last month in Geophysical Research Letters by scientists with the universities of Rochester and Virginia. The reports note two important findings that run counter to the view that human activity is causing catastrophic global warming. "It's been known for some time that satellites and surface thermometers give different temperature trends," said one of the reports' co-authors Prof. S. Fred Singer, president of the Science & Environmental Policy Project (SEPP). "We now have independent confirmation that the satellite results are correct...
