On Clinton, Streisand and Murdoch: A Climate Change Alliance

It's probably impossible to say something positive about Bill Clinton without being accused of being partisan. After all, didn't he used to be a friend of Al Gore's?
But his global initiative is reaping real results and we think he deserves some recognition. As John Stewart suggests in the attached YouTube video, it's not just anybody who could get Barbra Streisand and Rupert Murdoch pulling in the same boat - and in the same direction.
(To our Republican readers; you probably want to bail out when they break for a commercial. It will spare you having to listen to Bill's pitch for Hillary's presidency.)

Hummer to have its day in court, California sues auto giants

California State Attorney Bill Lockyer filed a global warming suit today against  auto-giants Ford, GM and Toyota, claiming that green-house gas emissions have done significant damage to the Sunshine State's resources, infrastructure and environmental health.

AG Lockyer states: “Vehicle emissions are the single most rapidly growing source of the carbon emissions contributing to global warming, yet the federal government and the automakers have refused to act.”


Maybe Gov. Schwarzenegger will finally trade in that Hummer for a Tesla electric.

"Sanctimonious Propaganda:" An Australian Expert Explains

Gotta love this attack by Australian climate change denier Bob Carter on Al Gore and his movie, An Inconvenient Truth, which, by Carter's account, is the biggest thing in Australia since Lord of the Rings.

You get a sense of Carter's direction in this fabulously overweaning second paragraph:
The Australian media - with Four Corners, the Andrew Denton Show and Phillip Adams in the vanguard - have fallen compliantly into Mr Gore’s sticky fly-trap, producing breathless hagiographies of a man and film whose message is rooted in junk science.

Scientific American Slams the Wall Street Journal

Scientific American just published a somewhat scathing attack on the Wall Street Journal, accusing their editorial board of
hurling editorials of stunning misdirection at their readers, continuing their irresponsible drumbeat that global warming is junk science.

The DeSmogBlog would like to applaud them for their stern telling off of the paper. We couldn't have done it better ourselves:
The Wall Street Journal editorial page has for years railed against these scientific findings on climate change, even as the global consensus has reached nearly 100 percent of the scientific community.

Amen!
