Schwarzenegger: take the politics out of global warming

In an exclusive interview to ABC News, Arnold Schwarzenegger discusses California's new carbon reduction bill that aims to curb emissions in that state by 25% over the next 15 years.

Schwarzenegger states:

I don't think one should look at green house gas emissions or global warming as a political issue. So if that policy is against the Bush administration, so be it.”

We couldn't have said it better ourselves!

Skico Joins Climate Change Case Against EPA

As reported here in the Aspen Times, “the Aspen Skiing Co. on Thursday joined a major U.S. Supreme Court case against the Environmental Protection Agency to recognize greenhouse gas emissions as pollutants.”

It's another reminder that a lot of corporate profits rest on climate stability. The naysayers keep prattling on about the cost of addressing global warming. And increasingly large corporate community is recognizing the high price of failing to do so.

Preston Manning Takes a Swipe at MP's Science Illiteracy

Preston ManningThis for Canadian political policy wonks:

In an opinion piece in yesterday's Globe and Mail, the conservative elder statesman Preston Manning took a not-very subtle shot at the degree to which new Members of Parliament in Canada are prepared for their duties.

Manning says:

“There are an increasing number of public issues - from climate change to the demands of the knowledge economy, from the biotech revolution to coping with AIDS and the H5N1 virus - the understanding and resolution of which require a comprehension of basic science and an ability to critically assess scientific opinion. 

In addition to formal training, these skills can be developed by visiting reputable science websites, reading science literature, attending science lectures for general audiences, cultivating scientific acquaintances, visiting science projects and laboratories, urging one’s party to develop in-depth policy positions with respect to science, technology and innovation, and participating in that development. The time to do all this is before, not after, seeking nomination for public office.”
