  1. An interesting perspective on this conflict... > Barack Obama is Losing a Battle He Doesn't Know He's in
  2. Bad science usually makes good politics. But overall, I don't think climatology is bad science, per se, the problem is who makes use of its findings, and how.
  3. Welcome to the forum, Dirk
  4. Why bother responding to that? "Don't feed the trolls" is a good rule of thumb. The best way of dealing with such troll invasions as these is to ... > Simply ignore the attention wh0re
  5. A list compiling some of the last-minute amendments here ---> A List of Bush Midnight Regulations Against the Environment | Twilight Earth Another one ---> The Sietch Blog » Bush Trying To Gut Endangered Species Act On His Way Out On a more positive note ---> http://www.enviro-space.com/index.php?showtopic=889
  6. :) On a slightly more positive note than this earlier thread From: The Times of India - 26 November 2008 Drilling leases on and near the border of Utah's scenic national parks have been pulled from an auction block. The US Bureau of Land Management announced its decision late Tuesday after negotiations with National Park Service officials who objected to noise, lights and air pollution near Arches National Park, Dinosaur National Monument and Canyonlands National Park, all in Utah. Some of those parcels were within 1.3 miles (2.1kms) of Delicate Arch, a freestanding span of 33 feet (10
  7. Many aspects of the US presidential system seem to be relics from the 19th century. Many of those reflected the social hierarchical ideologies of that era, and while some have outlived their usefulness (or social acceptability), nobody has bothered to change / update them. A good example is the electoral college -- which allowed GW Bush to be declared as president on the basis of winning Florida by 500 votes even though he lost the overall election by 500,000 votes. It is possible that these powers of overruling the courts may very well be in a similar class. But the important point -- he
  8. As much as this is intended as a satire, it is (unfortunately) a pretty accurate reflection of historical approaches to the designation of wildlife reserves and other "protected" areas ...
  9. Seems to be about politics, economics and current events. But it is indeed difficult to follow some of the references. Appears to be using coded names for key figures, some of which are easy to figure out. Is it relevant to the "environment" or the general theme of this site -- no idea. Have you tried sending him a PM?
  10. No, I meant that because of its proximity to the Arctic, in the event of any major melting of the polar ice, the majority of non-mountainous areas of Europe would be submerged under water. What is now continuous part of the continent will be a series of islands. If we take the example of the Netherlands, it is already under water (i.e., lower than sea level, though obviously not submerged). That was the intended meaning of the "refugees from the EU" reference... Europe as we know it (continuous land mass or sub-continent) would no longer exist.
  11. How are they so sure that the effects of climate change will be sending "new refugees" to the EU? Considering the proximity of Europe to the Arctic, in the event of any acceleration of polar melting, wouldn't it seem more likely that climate change may create refugees from the EU?
  12. This is a rather interesting idea, but a very complex issue. In moving polar bears south, there would be issues raised on the impacts to the native biodiversity of Antarctica, since these Arctic polar bears would be exotic (non-native) species in the Southern Hemisphere. There was a time when (albeit less extreme) versions of these practices were the norm; however, based on impressions from positions that they usually take on these matters, it would seem that most modern day conservationists would be unable to support such a measure in principle. However, some researchers have recently
  13. Thanks for the welcome. The forum looks very interesting
