The February 2008 issue of Environment & Climate News notes how scientists skeptical of global warming alarmism are finding new outlets for their opinions. On page 1:

  • The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has denied California's attempt to impose automobile emissions standards, ruling a nationwide standard is more appropriate to the issue than a patchwork of state standards.
  • The massive energy bill signed by President George W. Bush on December 19 will have serious negative effects on the economy.
  • Computer models that form the basis for future global warming predictions have projected significantly more warming in recent years than has actually occurred.
  • The BP oil company's plans to expand its Whiting, Indiana refinery will not hurt Lake Michigan.

Also in this issue: bee colony collapse disorder, the Federal Clean Water Restoration Act, Oregon's coast coho salmon, coal-fired power in Kansas, malaria and other mosquito-borne disease, GM crops, a review of The Great Lakes Water Wars, and an interview with Kentucky state Rep. Jim Gooch.
