"Given the damage that fossil fuels cause to the climate, human health, wildlife, forests, lakes, ocean fish, etc., you may think that we place a very high tax on fossil fuels, right? Umm, well, not exactly. On the contrary, our government, egged on by special interests, chooses to subsidize them, or, more accurately, they volunteer YOU to subsidize fossil fuels."
-James Hansen

    How do you do that? What an amazing job tracking all that down in a week!

    I hate to add to your load, but sometimes quality is more useful than quantity.

    It would be helpful if you would highlight a few (especially if one of mine were included :-) ); perhaps one per section?

    Hi Michael,

    Yes it is an amazing compilation, Harvey deserves great accolades for that.

    As for your suggestion it is a good one, I have been planning to start doing that Real Soon Now, ie have a GW news digest following each of these weekly posts. It is only fair, my part of it right now only takes about 10 minutes with emacs and a few keyboard macros to get it ready for blogger. I have no excuse for not taking alittle time to highlight a few bit and pieces (special treatment for your fine missives, of course! ;-)

    I am moving to science blogs soon, so that will be my cue to get busier.

    Here's some info about Starbucks support of an eco-film (Arctic Tale) while they continue to disregard the need to implement a corportae recycling program.

    Coby, I enjoy your site very much. Especially "How to Talk to a Skeptic". I'm impressed that you follow and post relevant news items on GW. However, I think what is greatly in need is new posts. Find something in the news and write about it. If a new study is published and the denialists distort it (when don't they?) write a refutation. Just an idea.

    Thanks, Anon, for the nice feedback. I am planning to be more active in the very near future.
