Honda hybrid a no-brainer


Check out Gizmodo's review of the Honda Civic Hybrid. This is a no-brainer new car purchase, at 50 mpg with 140 horsepower, coming in at around $22,000 US ($25,000 CAN). Not to mention the huge savings in gas and tax exemption programs. No wonder Toyota and Honda are doing so well, while the Detroit automakers are still flailing their arms over Hummers and F150's.

For those out there who think going green means going backwards, please tell me where the hair shirt (or in this case seat-covers) is in the Honda hybrid?

Bush Ignores Supreme Court, continues legacy of carbon denial and confusion

With Bush brushing off yesterday's landmark global warming decision by the Supreme Court we continue to recrod for posterity what will no doubt be a legacy of foot-dragging and global warming denial by the Bush administration.

We have seen reports of political interference in global warming science spanning most of Bush's tenure as president.

Bush to Supreme Court: "Thanks, but no thanks!"

A day after the Supreme Court ruled that the federal government had the authority to regulate heat-trapping gases, President Bush said he thought that the measures he had taken so far were sufficient. Mr. Bush made it clear in remarks on Tuesday that he thought his proposal to increase automobile fuel efficiency was sufficient for the moment; he gave no indication he would ask the Environmental Protection Agency to regulate emissions of heat-trapping gases.

Sign Says

As I was cruising through my neighbourhood today I came across a block with a sea of white signs proclaiming “Next Election I'm Voting for REAL Action on Climate Change - Please Reduce Emissions Now”.

Immediately, I knew I had to have one of those glorious signs so I went home and contacted organizer Kevin Washbrook. His group is called 'Voters Taking Action on Climate Change' (VTACC) and it's made up of a group of local neighbourhood residents who are concerned about global warming and are calling for political action on reducing emissions. Through the sign campaign they hope to encourage Vancouver residents to make climate change the deciding issue in the next election as well as reminding candidates that they are going to have to take global warming very seriously if they want to win.

EPA Decision Repudiates White House Position

A memo leaked exclusively to the DeSmogBlog demostrates how completely the U.S. Supreme Court decision forcing the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to regulate greenhouse gas emissions is a repudiation of the Bush administration's position.

The leaked memo is drafted by none other than former White House advisor and current ExxonMobil employee, Phil Cooney , and bears the title: “Whether API [American Petroleum Institute] shouldseek to coordinate a multi-industry, trade group response to petition for EPA rulemaking of four greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act.”
