New Scientist slams Canada's inaction

The December issue of New Scientist pulls no punches in its editorial titled: Canada faces the wrong way on climate change.

As usual it is a subcription-only article, but here's a snippet:

“If there is one nation that should be acutely aware of how damaging climate change could be it is Canada. Its northern wilderness has been romanticised in literature, has inspired great art, and remains a treasured element in the national character. Yet instead of leading the charge to halt global warming, the Canadian government led by Stephen Harper is retreating.”

OMG! Thanks for the Add!

We're a little embarrassed about it, but we've got ourselves a MySpace page. What can I tell you? All the kids are doing it. In the 21st century, one's value to the world is apparently judged by the number of MySpace 'friends' one has.

At the moment, we've got four.

But we just started the page. That's our excuse, and we're sticking to it. That said, if you're a MySpace user, please add us as your friend.

Forget the skeptics, the real global warming cheerleaders are horny seals

While most of nature shudders as the atmosphere warms, there's one species that is wildly enthusiastic.

NASA: 2006 continues heatwave records

The five warmest years on record in descending order are 2005, 1998, 2002, 2003 and 2006.
