It would destroy President Bush's legacy now to adopt Al Gore's global warming policies after pursuing much more effective policies for seven years. It is true that global warming alarmists are filing multiple lawsuits to use the Clean Air Act and the Endangered Species Act to cause a regulatory trainwreck…
The DC-based Competitive Enterprise Institute desperately wants to remain relevant in the global warming discussion, and has fallen back to some good old fashioned Gore-bashing to do so.
At a press conference yesterday, the CEI released a new ad campaign trying (again) to discredit action on global warming, by trying (again) to discredit the work of vice-president Al Gore.You can check out the CEI's ads here - you'll find they're nothing more than a rehash of information long since made irrelevant.
Below is a fundraising letter one of our loyal readers sent along, penned by Fred Smith, president of the Competitive Enterprise Institute.
It's quite the vitriolic and desperate pitch for money - something the CEI is no doubt in need of after their fall from grace with oil giant ExxonMobil. This vast government, media, science conspiracy theory stuck in Smith's head isn't going to save any shred of credibility he and his organization might have left.
And it won't endear him with media, who he describes in the letter as being “remarkably gullible.”
Here's new NASA satellite video showing the astounding loss of Arctic sea ice.
Here's a fairly new and very needed blog called the Hot House started up by Stuart Leavenworth at the Sacramento Bee.
Stuart will be covering the ins and outs of California's efforts to curb greenhouse gas emissions. I hope that Leavenworth will be keeping an especially close eye on the lawsuit by the auto industry against the state of California that has effectively delayed action on vehicle greenhouse gas emissions for the better part of 5 years now.
For those readers not familiar with the case. Here's a basic rundown.
The most outspoken climate-change denying U.S. think tank - recently cut off by favourite funder Exxon Mobil - has coincidentally seen the light on climate science and now acknowledges the obvious.
Check out this excellent overview, reported in The Australian, but written by The New Republic's Bradford Plumer.
According to the NRSP, Clark completed his graduate studies at the University of Waterloo and at the Université de Paris Sud (Orsay) in isotope hydrogeology and paleoclimatology. 
The Competitive Enterprise Institute, who not even the likes of ExxonMobil want to be associated with anymore, has issued a media advisory today offering up their in-house staff as global warming “experts” available for comment on the upcoming release by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
With the IPCC report coming from scientists, you would think the CEI would be offering up scientists as global warming “experts.
Here's some background information on each of their so-called “experts.”
