Global Warming Continuing ... ?

Global warming continued through the winter of 2005, with the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reporting all states having at or above average temperatures from December 2004 through February 2005.

Meanwhile, the most recent scientific modeling studies conducted by the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado have reached the striking conclusion that, even if the world stopped burning fossil fuels tomorrow, the greenhouse gas emissions which have already accumulated in the atmosphere will cause global temperatures to climb for the next hundred years, and sea level to continue to rising even longer. The longer we delay in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, says the lead study author, "the worse things will get".

Alarm bells should be going off all over the U.S. - at the federal, state and local levels. Global warming has reached the crisis stage now as scientists the world over say we must reduce fossil fuel burning significantly, TODAY, or all succeeding generations will pay the price.

Studies Conclude Major and Urgent Actions Needed to Confront Global Warming

Even if the world stopped burning fossil fuels tomorrow, the emissions which have already accumulated in the atmosphere would cause global temperatures to climb for the next hundred years, and sea level to continue to rise for even longer. Such is the prognosis given the planet Earth by two global warming studies recently completed by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colorado.

Using the most sophisticated and newest computer models, two study teams both came to the conclusion: Earth is already committed to significant climate change, even if human activities responsible for greenhouse gas emissions ceased entirely. The longer it takes to reduce those emissions, "the worse it gets", said Gerald Meehl, one of the research study leaders.

The two reports confirm dire predictions made by earlier research. "It's additional evidence that those initial findings were sound and that we need to pay attention", said Vivien Gornitz, a sea level-rise expert at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York City.

Nepal Government Admits Supporting Vigilantes in Kapilbastu District

On February First of this year the King dissolved the parliament and took full control of the country, censoring the media and shutting down telephone and interne connections with the outside world. In this climae, numerous abuses of power and authority have been charged against the government, police, and Royal Nepalese Army or RNA. (This story first aired on WORT's "Third World View")

To Mark 2nd Anniversary of Iraq War, NPR Ignores Peace Movement in U.S.

The mainstream media's failure to report on anti-war dissent in this country contiued apace today. Yes, it's the second anniversary of our nation's imperialist attack on Iraq...and anti-war actions are happening around the country...but you wouldn't know it from listening to NPR. Here's a little note I sent to NPR's ombudsman to share my feelings about their "award-winning coverage." Perhaps you'd like to join me in expressing your outrage?:

This week's show is pumped-up-on-steroids funny! Mel & Mr. Pants chime in with words of wisdom from Antonin Scalia, warnings about road salt, giant squid, the sexual gyrations of Texas cheerleaders, and much much more.

Also - outrage over the war, an appeal to target military recruiters for protest, and Paul Wolfowitz to find out if he can kill more people as Deputy Defense Secretary or head of the World Bank. Remember to BYOTP!

U.S. Auto Industry Launches Deceptive Ad Campaign

The Auto Alliance, the lobbyist group representing most of the major U.S. automakers, has launched a deceptive new ad campaign which claims U.S. autos manufactured today are "virtually emission-free". But what the ad doesn't tell you is that the automobiles manufactured today still emit fine particulate matter which pass into delicate lung, artery and human heart tissue, which can result in injury, illness and even death.

The Auto Alliance also doesn't tell you that the heat-trapping carbon dioxide emissions emitted from their vehicles in the U.S. this year will total more than 1,300 million tons, which is more than most whole countries emit from all their sources combined.

Hello Minions! Its flu season on Mel and Floyd. The duo were in rare form this week with a super hilarious show. Mel & Mr. Pants take on the post office of the future, credit card debt, FCC censorship, spy suits, and a name-this-monkey contest. Also, Mel flops on a joke. Enjoy!

(Sorry for the late start! The audio file begins about 10 minutes late with Mel wrapping up some sort of a story with an, ahem, unusual punchline.)
