AutoLobby World Cup: European Union vs. United States

It seems that auto industry greenwashing is not just a North American phenomenon.

Like most international sports, the Europeans seem to always be one step ahead. And when it comes to the sleazy sport of greenwashing and delay tactics, the European autolobby has been at it for a lot longer and has developed much more skill than their American counterparts.

Hurricanes on the Rise?

A new study published by Greg Holland of the National Center for Atmospheric Research and Peter Webster of Georgia Institute of Technology has found that the number of hurricanes in the past 100 years has doubled. Altered wind patterns and rising surface sea temperatures (SST's) caused by global warming are the culprits. The team studied hurricane frequency from 1900 to 2005 and found 3 distinct periods in which hurricane activity increased sharply and then stabilized.

Debate does exist however…

Adam Siegel on DailyKos has a well-written and sourced piece on the US climate change legislation currently under proposal on Capitol Hill.

To quote:

When it comes to 'Global Warming' legislation, who seriously believes that we will be able to drink at the trough multiple times. That if a GW titled piece of legislation is passed by Congress and signed by George the W, that it will be possible to invest the effort and convince 'moderates' to pass another Global Warming act just a few years later?”
