Letter: Denying climate change won’t make it go away 25.4.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Thank you, Kendra Houser, for your response to climate change denier Ronald Jones. I would respectfully offer this to Mr. Jones, and to all the other deniers, to seriously think about: It is a fact that 97 percent of expert climate scientists agree that climate change is indeed very real, and very likely caused by human behavior. That’s 97 out of 100 experts. Mr. Jones, if you went to see 100 cancer experts, and 97 of them told you that you do indeed have cancer, and that you require immediate s...

Editorial: Keystone XL’s continued delay is absurd 24.4.2014 Washington Post
IF FOOT-DRAGGING were a competitive sport, President Obama and his administration would be world champions for their performance in delaying the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline . Last Friday afternoon, the time when officials make announcements they hope no one will notice, the State Department declared that it is putting off a decision on Keystone XL indefinitely — or at least, it seems, well past November’s midterm elections . This time, the excuse is litigation in Nebraska over the proposed route, because that might lead to a change in the project that various federal agencies will want to consider. The State Department might even decide to substantially restart the environmental review process . This is yet another laughable reason to delay a project that the federal government has been scrutinizing for more than five years ...

Spotlight on Green News & Views: Bundy lied, Earth Day 2014, Nate Silver and climate change 24.4.2014 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
Many of the dozens of environmentally related posts that appear at Daily Kos each week don't attract the attention they deserve. So, in 2006, a new weekly feature was launched to highlight those diaries. Initially called Eco-Diary Rescue, the name was change to Green Diary Rescue after a couple of years. After nearly 17,000 green diaries had been rescued, the name was changed again to Spotlight on Green News & Views. The spotlight appears twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Inclusion of a diary in the Spotlight does not necessarily indicate my agreement with or endorsement of it. Breaking news on Bundy Ranch —by nachtwulf: "It seems that all of his claims are apparently lies. He claims that his family has been using the land since the 1870s, from which his erroneous claims derive. His family actually bought the ranch in 1948, provably, and didn't get cattle until the 1950s. And they bought the water rights to their own property but no grazing rights to the Federal land. Imagine that." "Working to ...

How to Use the Bible to Save the Planet 23.4.2014 Mother Jones
For a brief moment in Darren Aronofsky's hit religious epic film Noah, we see the great Flood from space. From that vantage point, it looks much like an atmospheric event of the sort that a NASA satellite might photograph, so we can all share it on Facebook. So what does biblical cataclysm look like from orbit? Beautifully, and yet terrifyingly, the entire Earth appears to be draped in a quilt of hurricanes, each cyclone nestled alongside the next. "There is a huge statement in the film, a strong message about the coming flood from global warming," Aronofsky told The New Yorker in an extensive profile . The film also contains a depiction of the Big Bang (something doubted by 51 percent of Americans , according to a recent survey), fins-to-limbs evolution , and the very clear implication that the biblical "days" of the creation were only metaphorical days, not literal, 24-hour ones.
