The Australian: Any Sacrifice Worth Sitting at the Big Table

In a fact-bashing roundup, one of Australia's biggest newspapers has embarrassed itself in delighted support of the Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate conference held there last week.

The Australian announced in this Editorial that climate change isn't proven; and that, if it is proven, it's too expensive to address by seeking an agreeable global mandate.

Gore warns about global warming

And to think: but for a little Florida vote-rigging and a strained U.S. Supreme Court Decision, this man might be midway through his second term as President of the United States.

The Anti-Kyoto Vision Statement

The Asia-Pacific Partnership for Clean Development and Climate, or, as one blogger put it, APP4CDC, has offered this noble-sounding, if impossibly long, vision statement. Note in the fifith and sixth paragraphs the goal to reduce “greenhouse gas intensities,” not gross output.

Did You Hear the One About the Funny Environmentalist?

We didn’t think so.

The Idea Grove has an interesting post on one recent example of industry making fun of environmental activism.

The Anti-Kyoto Partnership

Google Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate and you will find a host of stories lauding a new international group nominally dedicated to reducing climate change by developing new technology.

Great, you say.

But, if you read very far into the material, you will find an international industrial spin project - a blatant effort to distract the public from the Kyoto process and to justify huge increases in the production and consumption of fossil fuels, especially coal.

Worldometers - a Measure of Many Interesting Things

This is a wonderful site if only for its ability to make you really think about the pace of change on the earth. There is woefully little information about the origin of the statistics, but the mere willingness to try to track the number of births and deaths - as well as the production of food, garbage, carbon dioxide and, well, many more things, is courageous and worthy.
