James Hansen tells it like it is; Climate Progress has a quote.
A Clean Air Group is suing Xcel over alleged pollution standards. Total estimated cost if guilty? $400 million. Even if Xcel is guilty, there’s no way they’ll end up paying that much money. A settlement is much likelier.
Climate Progress’ take on Bush’s ‘discussion’ of energy during the SOTU.
“The Earth’s climate is now clearly out of balance and is warming.” So says the American Geophysical Union. Any solution? “Mitigation strategies and adaptation responses will call for collaborations across science, technology, industry, and government.” Not going to happen with the Neandertals currently pulling the levers. 2009 and 2010 will be too late. Get ready for a vastly different planet.
