    Cap and Trade: Giving More Than 100 Percent

    Could Global Warming Models Be Wrong?

    Is it possible that we may know less about the climate and temperature change than previously thought? Maybe so, says a new study published online today in the journal Nature Geoscience. The report found that only about half of the warming that occurred during a natural climate change 55 million … More

    California’s Global Warming Policy is Not One to Follow

    The old adage, “As goes California, so goes the nation,” could foreshadow troubling years ahead when it comes to economic prosperity in the United States. And if the California Air Resources Board (CARB) moves forward with implementing costly regulations to reduce carbon dioxide and greenhouse gas emissions, it could serve … More

    Leaders of eight industrialized nations met last week in Italy to discuss a number of critical issues, including climate change, and in what British Prime Minister Gordon Brown called a “historic agreement,” the G8 agreed that “average global temperatures shouldn’t increase by more than 2 degrees Celsius[,] in a significant … More
