Wildfires really are on the rise in West, Utah researchers say 18.4.2014 Salt Lake Tribune
Over the past three decades, wildfires in the western United States have been getting larger and more frequent, according to new research from the University of Utah. This trend, which U. geographers documented with satellite images, could reflect the increasing temperatures and drought severity associated with climate change, according to lead author Philip Dennison. Dennison’s team examined every fire of at least 1,000 acres from central Nebraska to the Cascades between 1984 and 2011, nearly ...

Hasselbeck Believes Climate Science Just A 'Product' That Is 'Sold' To Americans 18.4.2014 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
Fox News host Elisabeth Hasselbeck on Thursday morning declared that climate change was just another "product" being "sold" to the American people, which might explain why a recent study found that the network was wrong about the subject 72 percent of the time. In preparation for next week's annual Earth Day, Hasselbeck and the other hosts of Fox & Friends asked Fox Business personality John Stossel why he was promoting fossil fuels. "Because that's the only way that poor people -- and there are billions still in poverty -- can lift themselves out of poverty," Stossel explained. "The other stuff isn't good enough." "It's all symbolism without solution, right?" Hasselbeck opined. Stossel praised government for enacting regulations in the 1970s, and successfully cleaning up the air and the water. But he added that "they should have then said, stick a fork in it, it's done. Instead, always more. Give us more control." Co-host Steve Doocy asserted that one of the founders of Greenpeace thought that man made ...

Spotlight on Green News & Views: Keeping fossil fuel in the ground, this land is not your land 17.4.2014 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
Moorhen and babies . Many of the dozens of environmentally related posts that appear at Daily Kos each week don't attract the attention they deserve. So, more than seven years ago, a new 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. Now, after nearly 17,000 green diaries have been rescued, the name is changing again. From now on, because of the growing number of diaries being posted at the site, Spotlight on Green News & Views will appear twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays. As has all along been true, inclusion of a diary in the Spotlight does not necessarily indicate my agreement with or endorsement of it. Choose Wisely —by Michael Brune: "The Climate Action Plan that President Obama announced last year is full of good ideas, and his administration has already done more to address carbon pollution than any other has. New fuel-economy standards will double the efficiency of our cars and trucks. ...

U.S. sanctions on Russia over Ukraine would buy negotiating power 17.4.2014 Washington Post: Editorials
RUSSIA AND the United States have pursued dramatically different strategies on Ukraine in the 10 days preceding a diplomatic meeting Thursday in Geneva . While loudly denouncing what it has described as direct Russian intervention in eastern Ukraine and threatening tough sanctions , the Obama administration elected not to take any concrete action in the hope that the meeting, which also includes the foreign ministers of Ukraine and the European Union, will produce positive results. The administration also has refused Ukraine’s desperate requests for non-lethal aid for its military as it attempts to turn back the quasi-covert ...

A backup plan for climate change 16.4.2014 Washington Post: Editorials
OF ALL the reports that the U.N.-chartered Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has released over the last several months, this week’s might be the most distressing. The authoritative body of scientists, economists and other experts previously warned that the planet is warming, that humans are primarily responsible and that uncontrolled climate change would have a range of unwelcome effects . Those conclusions would not be too worrisome if the world were well on the way to heading off major problems. But the IPCC found the opposite ...
