So What's the "Smog"-o-sphere?

One of our readers just emailed asking who we would consider to be part of the “Smog”-o-sphere, the antithesis of the “DeSmog”-o-sphere.

Here's a few of the blog sites we keep our eye on:

Heritage Foundation Blog

CEI's Open Market Blog

Heartland Institute Blog

National Association of Manufacturer's Blog

NewsBusters

Amy Ridenour's National Policy Blog

Michelle Malkin's Blog

So there you go. The Smog-o-Sphere. Who did we miss?

Around the DeSmog-o-Sphere

Here's some great posts we've come across from our friends and fellow DeSmoggers (p.s. if you want to be added to our blogroll, drop me a line at: desmogblog[at]gmail.com):

At Ecotality Blog, Adam Seigel writes:

Amid the discussions of Global Warming today and in the years to come, vigilance to language, to framing, to nuance is and will remain an imperative as we seek a path forward to a sustainable and prosperous energy future (Energize America).

Pollution control doesn’t curb greenhouse-gas emissions, Utah task force says

The converters and filters used to combat air pollution from cars won’t help to reign in global warming because they do nothing to reduce fuel consumption. To cut the carbon emissions that drive climate change, people need to drive smaller cars.

Global warming puts nuclear power on the hot seat in climate-change struggle

As greenhouse-gas emissions continue to build in the atmosphere, nuclear power is emerging from the shadows in the struggle to curb climate change. More than a decade after a nuclear plant was completed in the U.S., the Bush administration now touts it as a possible solution and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change hasn’t ruled it out. And the U.S.’s leading nuclear research lab is working to render the controversial source a safe alternative to fossil fuels.

India leads world in climate-change concern, study finds

The surprise finding, announced by HSBC, the world’s fourth-largest corporation, showed India leading both the developed and developing worlds – far ahead of the UK, France, Germany and the US.

Heating up the Northeast

A new report released by 50 top university and government researchers including one of the leading authors of the IPCC's report on impact and mitigation of global warming, has warned that the Northeastern United States could face severe weather changes if initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions are not acted on.

Lengthy spells of over 100 degree heat, frequent and intense flooding, the disappearance of most ski resorts in the area as well as spruce and hemlock trees are some of the devastating effects that the forecasted temperature increase would produce.

Global-warming deniers shift gears in their distraction conspiracy

A column in a Seattle newspaper says growing consensus on human causes of climate change has forced deniers to switch tactics, abandoning shrill demands for scientific evidence – which is ample – for “drive-by shootings” such as exaggerated estimates of energy consumption in Al Gore’s house in Tennessee, or Prince Charles flying across the Atlantic to receive an environmental award.
