Global warming - convinced?
With the democrats taking power, there seems to be a lot of chatter on the topic of global warming. Today there's a Reuters article claiming that according to a congressional committee, U.S. scientists were pressured to tailor their writings on global warming to fit the Bush administration's skepticism, in some cases at the behest of a former oil-industry lobbyist. You can read that article here.
Some other interesting articles today on the web:
- California may ban conventional lightbulbs by 2012
- World scientists near consensus on global warming.
- Scientists preparing grim global warming report
There is also a really cool interactive feature over at the Chicago Tribune by Pulitzer Prize winner Paul Salopek, as he traces gasoline sold at a Chicago-area station all the way back to its origins. Check it out here.
