Senate Committee debates climate change action costs today

Its refreshing to see the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee moving on from a debate over whether global warming is a hoax, to one of what to do about ever-increasing US greenhouse gas emissions.

Today the hearing was on the subject of “Emerging Technologies and Practices for Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions.”

Oil Giant Is Playing a Shell Game -- U.K. Enviros

An environmental group said it would file complaints to three European advertising regulators about a Royal Dutch Shell advertisement that says the oil major uses waste CO2 to help grow flowers. Friends of the Earth Europe said Shell advertising that its refinery near Rotterdam pipes CO2 to nearby greenhouses is misleading because only a fraction of the CO2 emissions are used in this way.

Around the DeSmogosphere

Here's what other bloggers and DeSmog friends from our blogroll are talking about.

Adam Siegal @ Ecotality:

Wal-Mart announced today a huge solar system purchase, a “pilot project … toward its goal of being supplied by 100 percent renewable energy.” For many, Wal-Mart has been an odd poster child for Green business management…

Simon Donner @ Maribo:

In case you are still not convinced that the emissions intensity concept is a sham, take a look at this graph. In fact, don’t just look at it. E-mail a copy to the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper…

Beck's "Climate of Fear" crashes and burns

Is it scientifically valid to attribute one instance of total failure by the global warming denier campaign to an emerging long-term global trend of failures by the global warming denier campaign? 

Last week's Glenn Beck denier-a-minute special on climate change “alarmism” was a complete flop. The evening ratings are out and it shows Beck dead last in total viewers in the 7pm time slot. CNN can't be too happy, considering there was a considerable amount of hype-dollars invested in this attack on science.

I guess Tim Ball isn't the media darling the US think tank s have been making him out to be.
