The Sun Sets (finally) on the Solar Radiation Myth

While the “cosmic ray” theory of climate change will probably still continue to be put forward by the persistent little army of global warming deniers, there's a new study to be published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society that appears to put the myth to rest once and for all.

Any global warming denier who continues to defend this myth is more than welcome to send their scientific findings to the Proceedings of the Royal Society or any other peer-reviewed scientific journal for review and possible publication.

Auto Alliance Painting Green Efficiency Numbers

Who killed the Hybrid Plug-in? A sequel

While big automakers, like Ford, Toyota and GM hang a “hybrid plug-in” carrot in front of our collective nose, they’re fighting tooth and nail in California, and elsewhere, against stricter greenhouse gas emission standards for new vehicles.
