Part One

As your president I vow to fight global warming on Mars

Have we inhabited Mars yet? If so, can someone send up soon-to-be-presidential candidate Fred Thompson? Please.

As MediaMatters is reporting today, the Washington Post ran the following Thompson quote today:

It seems scientists have noticed recently that quite a few planets in our solar system seem to be heating up a bit, including Pluto. This has led some people, not necessarily scientists, to wonder if Mars and Jupiter, non signatories to the Kyoto Treaty, are actually inhabited by alien SUV-driving industrialists who run their air-conditioning at 60 degrees and refuse to recycle…”

The Big Thaw

Things that normally happen in geologic time are happening during the span of a human lifetime. It's like watching the Statue of Liberty melt.”

A must-read article in the upcoming National Geographic. 

Who's on Thin Ice Here?

What do you do if you are an oil-industry sweetheart of a 'news group' and you need to challenge climate science?

Be smug and use sarcasm of course. Newsbusters.org wrote a criticism within a criticism, taking to task the New York Times' 2 reviews of a new film on global warming's effects on polar bears, called 'Arctic Tale'.

Apparently 2 glowing reviews of the movie in less than a week was enough to get columnist Noel Sheppard at NewsBusters a little hot under the collar.
