Professor Robert Giegengack on Al Gore and An Inconvenient Truth:

The glossy production is replete with inaccuracies and misrepresentations, and appeals to public fear as shamelessly as any other political statement that hopes to unite the public behind a particular ideology … What he’s doing is no less than the scare tactics used by people like Karl Rove.

UPDATE. Jack Marx on planetary rescue globes.

UPDATE II. The hidden environmental menace of Valentine bouquets.

UPDATE III. The Toronto Sun’s Lorrie Goldstein unloads on the Kyoto accord.

UPDATE IV. The New York Times takes all the fun out of snowmaking:

As global warming continues to wreak havoc with the weather, snowmakers impose a nostalgic order — albeit one that does nothing to help the situation, since snowmaking runs on electricity (and water, of course, one and a half to six gallons a minute, depending on the size of the machine). Charles Santry, president of Snow Economics, said his Backyard Blizzard Sport machine, which has a 1.5 horsepower engine, can use up to 1,650 watts. A clothes dryer guzzles more power, but snowmaking is certainly not going to win any green awards.

Neither will producing the New York Times.
