Citizens Back Climate Change Action, Despite Lobbying Surge 4.12.2009 Truthout.com

Washington - As both Washington and the international community come gradually closer to taking substantive action on climate change at a high-level conference in Copenhagen, a side effect of this progress has been a parallel increase in the intensity of campaigns opposing such action – which may be a factor in the slight dip in the U.S. public's concern about climate change.

The carbon-cutting crew's faulty logic | Tim Worstall 4.12.2009 The Guardian -- World Latest
If localism is a cure for climate change then the assumptions that the scientific consensus rests upon are wrong I've a small confession to make and where better to make it than here? I'm one of those classical liberal types with the libertarian mindset that sees the carbon-cutters as, in general, authoritarian, super-statist, quasi-socialist conspirators intent on bossing people around and interfering with their lives and liberties. Having confessed, I'm now going to prove that it's true, that it's not just my belief but a true reflection of the world. We're all entirely familiar with the usual puffery that infests the pages of every newspaper across the land. Everybody from Greenpeace to the Green party via Friends of the Earth, the Sustainable Development Commission, Plane Stupid, WWF and the tail-end of the whole alphabet soup tells us that the solution to climate change lies in localism. We shouldn't eat from outside our bio-region, economies should be regional or smaller, what trade ...

Family Planning for the Planet a.k.a. Population Control–Disingenuous Patriarchy That Does Not Empower Women 4.12.2009 Commondreams.org Views
by Lucinda Marshall
The U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA)’s recent report, “Climate Change Connections:  Gender and Population’s” linkage between access to family planning and reproductive healthcare and climate change has led to some troubling analysis regarding population control. According to the overview of the report, 

The world’s population is forecast to grow from today’s 6.7 billion to between 8.0 and 10.5 billion by 2050.

Hot Under the Collar at Cold Shoulder for Global Warming 4.12.2009 Commondreams.org Views
by Anne Johnstone

The Earth is flat. At least that used to be the universal view until about the fourth century BC. By medieval times, most Europeans accepted that it was spherical but old ideas die hard.

So it was that just 40 years ago members of the International Flat Earth Society dismissed the Apollo Moon landing as a hoax, staged by Hollywood and based on an Arthur C Clarke script.

Liberal Democrats Take Aim at Funding for War 4.12.2009 Common Dreams: Headlines
by Joe Garofoli
Liberal Democrats, led by heavy-hitting members of Congress from California, are taking on President Obama for the first time, aiming to block funding for his plans to send 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan.

At the same time, voters who supported Obama's candidacy last year are expressing their disappointment online and in street protests against his plan to increase American forces in the war-ravaged nation to nearly 100,000.

"This is not the hope you voted for," read a sign at an anti-war protest in San Francisco this week.

The science still points to Copenhagen | Robert Watson 4.12.2009 Guardian: Science
Yes, the UEA emails must be investigated, but the overwhelming scientific evidence makes a climate change deal vital It is about time that some sanity is brought to bear on the issue of the illegally hacked temperature data and emails from the University of East Anglia (UEA). There is no doubt that the language in the emails could suggest that the scientists may have inappropriately manipulated the data to support the theory of human-induced climate change and attempted to suppress other data that contradicts this theory, which is why I applaud UEA for rapidly establishing an independent review of the whole issue . But to suggest that this undermines the whole body of scientific evidence of human-induced climate change, and that any talk of carbon emissions cuts should be suspended, is simply untenable. The global temperature analysis is robust and the work of the UEA Climatic Research Unit, on the land component, is fully supported by two separate independent analyses in the US at Nasa and ...

Pantomime season comes early to Canada in climate debate with sceptics 4.12.2009 Guardian: Science
What would your debating strategy have been against Bjorn Lomborg? How could I have handled him better? I've just returned from Canada, where I've been involved in efforts to stop the government's disastrous campaign of sabotage against the Copenhagen climate talks . I don't know whether or not I've helped to make a difference – you never do – but I did manage to get the message into most of the major media , and my attacks on Canada's record have kicked off a lot of discussion. Sometimes it helps to have a foreigner criticising your national policy, as it shows that your government's actions haven't gone unnoticed overseas. I got involved in quite a few talks and debates while I was there, culminating in a showdown with Lord Nigel Lawson and Bjorn Lomborg. On my side was Elizabeth May, leader of the Canadian Green party. You can watch it on the Munk Debates site . The motion was that "Climate change is mankind's defining crisis, and demands a commensurate response." Broadly ...
