The front page of the May 2002 issue of Environment & Climate News responds to the biggest environmental controversies in the news: the collapse of the Larsen B ice shelf in the Antarctic Peninsula, which environmentalists claim is a sign of “global warming,” and a recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association alleging to show a more significant health effect of air pollution than previously thought.

Also in the May issue, Joseph Bast discusses why a proposed merger between EchoStar and DIRECTV is important to farmers and rural communities; Brian Bishop comments on Congress’s cop-out on CAFE; Howard Fienberg of TechCentral Station and the American Council on Science and Health expose anti-biotechnology protests based on junk science; James Taylor critiques the American Planning Association’s 1,450-page legislative guidebook promoting smart growth; and Randal O’Toole exposes government funding of smart-growth advocacy.
