Global warming heats up in the Arctic

The U.S. Geological Survey estimates the Arctic holds some 25 per cent of the world’s undiscovered oil and gas, among other resources, and the melting of the Polar ice cap due to human-induced climate change is accelerating the stampede for riches. It's a catastrophic scenario for the Arctic ecosystem, for polar bears and other wildlife, and for Inuit populations whose ancient cultures depend on frozen waters.

IPCC Pulls Its Punches: Scientific American

After some debate, the scientists and diplomats of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued their long-anticipated summary report in February – leaving out a reference to an accelerated warming trend.

By excluding statements that provoked disagreement and adhering strictly to data published in peer-reviewed journals, the IPCC has generated a conservative document that may underestimate the changes that will result from a warming world, much as its 2001 report did.

Global warming a “weapon of mass destruction,” says British climatologist

Climate Change and Evangelism

A frightened - and frightening - rump of the evangelical community has launched an attack on the climate change consensus, suggesting that it is somehow inherently anti-human.

The first volley in the most recent attack came last Monday from the Rev. Jerry Falwell - the Moral Majority founder who has done so much to reintroduce religion into American politics. Falwell, who apparently has an inside track on the devil's thoughts and tactics, said that climate change was “Satan’s attempt to redirect the church’s primary focus” from evangelism to environmentalism.

An unpublished draft of the long-awaited second part of a United Nations report , obtained by SPIEGEL ONLINE, says global warming is happening faster than previously believed.

Unlikely coalition pushing Bush for federal cap on carbon emissions

Politicians, business leaders and economists have joined environmentalists in calling for new laws to restrict greenhouse gases. The US administration has thus far rejected these efforts, but momentum for change has been building since the February 2 release of a report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that called global warming “unequivocal” and said with 90 percent probability that human activities help cause it.
