DrumBeat: April 23, 2008 23.4.2008 The Oil Drum
LOS ANGELES -- Mexico's gasoline imports rose to 360,700 b/d in March, the highest level since November 2007. This coincided with a 7.8% decline in the country's oil production in this year's first quarter to 2.91 million b/d, largely due to declining output from traditional oil fields. State-owned Petroleos Mexicanos said March gasoline imports were up 6.5% compared with February, largely due to increasing numbers of cars in the country that consume some 41% of total supply. Gasoline imports are projected to increase by 58% to 489,000 b/d by 2015 unless new refining capacity comes online, according to a recent report by the energy ministry. It said Pemex has not built a refinery since 1979. [break] NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - President Felipe ...

Mr. Bush's Train Wreck 21.4.2008 Washington Post: Editorials
LAST WEEK, President Bush announced a climate change goal that is insufficiently ambitious, and he failed to endorse any mechanism to make even that goal come true. But he had a point when he warned against using laws, such as the Clean Air Act and the Endangered Species Act, to address global warming. Citing the 2007 Supreme Court ruling that the Environmental Protection Agency could regulate greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act, the president said, "This would automatically trigger regulation . . . all across our economy -- leading to what [House] Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman John Dingell [D-Mich.] . . . called 'a glorious mess.'

The Malthus Coincidence 20.4.2008 The Atlantic - Matthew Ygblesias
Paul Krugman : " for the whole of human history until his own time." Now here's my question -- is it a coincidence that Malthus' work appeared just at the time when his conclusions were, for the first time ever, no longer true? Or is the origin of Malthus' level of understanding of the economic system inextricably linked to the fact that the Malthusian era was ...

Better Than a Nuclear Blast 18.4.2008 The Atlantic - Matthew Ygblesias
Here's an interesting story about the at the Bikini Atoll nuclear test site. Back in 1954, an extremely powerful nuclear weapon was detonated there that "generated a wave of heat measuring 99,000ºF and spread mist-like radioactive fallout as far as Japan and Australia." Nevertheless, "much to the surprise of a team of research divers who explored the area, the mile-wide crater left by the detonation has made a remarkable recovery and is now home to a thriving underwater ecosystem." Naturally, like any sensible person, Cato's Indur Goklany reacted to this with a post about how : 99,000 degrees Fahrenheit! By comparison the upper-bound estimate for global warming is a puny global temperature increase of 11.5 degrees Fahrenheit (less in the ocean). ...

Bozell Column: Ben Stein Vs. Sputtering Atheists 18.4.2008 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
I confess that when the producers of Ben Stein’s new documentary "Expelled" called, offering me a private screening, I was less than excited. It is a reality of PC liberalism: There is only one credible side to an issue, and any dissent is not only rejected, it is scorned. Global warming. Gay "rights." Abortion "rights." On these and so many other issues there is enlightenment, and then there is the Idiotic Other Side. PC liberalism’s power centers are the news media, the entertainment industry and academia and all are in the clutches of an unmistakable hypocrisy: Theirs is an ideology that preaches the freedom of thought and expression at every opportunity, yet practices absolute intolerance toward dissension. Evolution is another one of those ...

Though there has been much reporting on the salmon crisis, like The Times' recent " U.S. halts commercial salmon season” and the New York Times' " The trouble with salmon,” no one has yet pointed out that the high numbers in 2002 were actually anomalous or that the increasing variability in salmon, bird and plankton populations all point to climate change as the main driving ...
