The March issue of Environment & Climate News offers evidence--from polar bear populations to surveys of economists to solar cycles--that climate alarmism is unfounded.

On page 1:

  • After pledging in 2001 that his city government would run on 20 percent renewable power by 2006, the end of the year showed Chicago Mayor Richard Daley could not fulfill that promise.
  • Since the 1970s, while much of the world was warming, polar bear numbers increased dramatically, from roughly 5,000 to 25,000 bears.
  • Farmers and cattlemen contend the Environmental Protection Agency's new particulate matter rule will impose unprecedented regulations on dust kicked up by agricultural practices.
  • Incoming Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland has sparked a potential constitutional showdown by vetoing a lead paint bill outgoing Gov. Bob Taft thought he had already approved.

Also in this issue: DDT, ozone standards, foreign air pollution, climate change, kudos for the father of the Green Revolution, alar, GM's new electric concept car, and more. Thomas Tanton reviews Lives per Gallon, by Terry Tamminen, finding it to be "a book written for conspiracy theorists and paranoid pessimists who look for confirmation of their worldview."
