World Bank group loans India $450 million for massive coal-power project

A press release says funding the huge Tata Power project will help to expand electricity use across five states in western and northern India. This is in keeping with the “higher energy use” sought under “the development goals of the Bank Group and our client countries.”

While the release did say the bank group will try “to balance these energy needs with concerns about climate change,” it also cautioned that “fossil fuels are likely to remain a key contributor to the world’s electricity needs.”

Uh-oh!

Global Warming Deniers Favorite "Sunspot" Theory Refuted... Again

If one were to reach into the grab bag of global warming deniers' favorite theories, one might pull out any number of speculation-laden papers and editorials regarding the supposed effect of solar activity on the Earth's climate.

For example, here's an excerpt from an October 2007 presentation given by a member of the Exxon-funded Heartland Institute:

Day 5: Back on the Rails

This is Day 5 in the series “In Search of Al Gore: A Climate Pilgrimage.”

1:00 p.m., EST: If you can read this, that's proof that VIA wireless works between Toronto and Montreal.

I am back on “track,” sitting in the first class VIA 1 car having just finished a lunch of hot snapper. It was, in fact, so good that it might inspire someone to complain about airline food (if airlines still served food).

Rush Limbaugh and Global Warming: the right wing radio attack on Al Gore

Anyone who's ever surfed the AM radio airwaves has doubtless stumbled upon Rush Limbaugh, who is arguably the most well-known right wing talk show host out there.

Over the years, he has been a convenient megaphone for the climate change denier crowd. He has interviewed them, reinforced their rhetoric, been suckered by fake research, and even given his own interpretation of the facts (polar bears stranded on ice floes are “just playing”).

Predictably, one of his latest targets has been Al Gore.

Obama eyes Gore for a major climate-change post

The Democratic presidential hopeful says he would offer the former vice-president and Nobel prize winner a cabinet-level or higher role in tackling global warming.

The remark was sure to heighten competition between Obama and rival Hillary Rodham Clinton, as Gore is a coveted endorsement as a leading voice for combating greenhouse emissions.

Gore kick starts sweeping program to slash U.S. carbon emissions

Al Gore has announced a multi-million dollar campaign urging the U.S. to slash greenhouse emissions. The effort by the Alliance for Climate Protection will combine advertising, online organizing and partnerships with grass-roots groups to educate the public about climate change and press politicians for solutions.

The movement crosses political boundaries, with several one-time opponents coming together in their bid to protect the planet from global warming.
