The June 2007 issue of Environment & Climate News leads with a report on the U.S. Supreme Court's April 2 decision that the Environmental Protection Agency must either regulate carbon dioxide or give a reasonable explanation as to why it refuses to do so. Also on page 1:
- U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer, head of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, will push for a European Union-style national cap-and-trade system to force reductions in CO2 emissions.
- Bedbug infestations have nearly doubled nationwide since the year 2000, and a ban on DDT and other effective pesticides is to blame.
- According to recent studies, ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica are losing little if any ice mass, thus having very little impact on global sea level.
Also in this issue: climate change, Al Gore, censorship (and firing!) of scientists, renewable power, the Great Lakes water compact, Knut the polar bear cub, organic foods, and food irradiation. Heartland Science Director Jay Lehr reviews Courage for the Earth: Writers, Scientists and Activists Celebrate the Life and Writings of Rachel Carson, which he refers to as a "soupy goo of grandiosity that could boil the contents of any healthy stomach."
