Canada's national pretender - the National Post - is at it again, dismissing any notion of climate change on the grounds that while the weather has been warmer than usual in Calgary, it was colder than ever in Warsaw.

Check this Fortune magazine story on the new survey by the Ceres investor coalition analyzing how 100 leading companies are addressing the growing financial risks and opportunities from climate change.

Wired has the first of three interviews with climate change authors, this one with Tim Flannery, director of the South Australian Museum and biologist at the University of Adelaide and author of The Weather Makers: How Man Is Changing the Climate and What It Means for Life on Earth (Grove Atlantic).
“When will we see a story about increasing levels of manmade greenhouse gases being a sign of progress? A story that points out that our use of affordable sources of energy continue to spur increases in global productivity, health, longevity, and quality of life in general? A story about the fact that the wealth that is generated by access to fossil fuels is just what will be required to develop and refine alternative energy technologies in the future?”
VERBIER, Switzerland (Reuters) - Global warming may be the last thing on the minds of extreme skiers speeding down the blustery cliff faces at Verbier-4 Vallees this winter.
But looking down from the chic Swiss ski resort's 10,800-foot peak, Eric Balet, whose company runs the ski lifts, says climate change has become a business concern.
Look here for an analysis of the Bush administration's deepening isolation on climate change - even the business community is taking another side.
