The Under-Reported Effect of Climate Change on Syria's Civil War

The Under-Reported Effect of Climate Change on Syria's Civil War
Desperation after a five year drought in Syria had agriculturalists tapping wells with a demand far above mother nature's supply. The results? Crop failures reached 75 percent, an estimated 85 percent of live stock perished, a large number of farmers abandoned their farms in search of non-existent inner-city jobs...and one civil war that might just ignite global warfare.

Climate Change Deniers Shoot Blanks in Search of Silver Bullet

Climate Change Deniers Shoot Blanks in Search of Silver Bullet
The climate denier set was delighted a month or so ago when a report surfaced in The Economist about a study conducted by a team of Norwegians. They breathlessly declared that the article had concluded that global temperatures had remained flat for 15 years, proof positive of what they've just simply known all along — that global warming is phony. The article, of course, made no such claim.

Tobacco Apologist Steve Milloy's EPA Human Testing Scare Campaign

Oh, the irony. A guy who built his career -- and fortune -- by muddying the science on the health effects of smoking is now accusing the E.P.A. of harming lungs and causing heart problems.
Steve Milloy, the former Big Tobacco flack who now runs the trashy haven for climate denial JunkScience.com, is waging a veritable war on the E.P.A. for their research on the effects of smog (or soot, or fine particulates, or PM 2.5 if you want to get really technical) on the cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
