Global GHG Emissions help

A lot of readers have been asking us to help them find the latest on green-house gas emission totals per country. I came across some resources lately on the United Nations site that I thought I would share. I will permanently store them under the media resources section of DeSmog.

Academy Awards Oscar to 'An Inconvenient Truth'

Last night's Academy Awards weren't as boring as I thought they would be. Admittedly I usually skip them but I was holding out for the 'Best Documentary' category to see if Davis Guggenheim et al would get the recognition they so richly deserved.

And I was not disappointed. Neither, I suspect, were millions of other human beings who got their first dose of the dangers of global warming through watching this highly acclaimed documentary. It may just be a gold statue, but it certainly represents an encouraging turn in public understanding around climate change.

Science versus Fiction

Here's a classic example of the perversity that can arise out of “balanced” media coverage of climate change. This Detroit News story purports to give evenhanded coverage to a story about a science teacher who have the temerity to show An Inconvenient Truth in her classroom, only to endure criticism from people who dispute its underlying “philosophy.”
