Earth Science: January 2008 Archives

2007 Was Tied as Earth's Second Warmest Year, NASA GISS

"As we predicted last year, 2007 was warmer than 2006, continuing the strong warming trend of the past 30 years that has been confidently attributed to the effect of increasing human-made greenhouse gases," said James Hansen, director of NASA GISS."

President George W. Bush today announced his intention to nominate four individuals to serve in his Administration, White House

"The President intends to nominate William J. Brennan of Maine, to be Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere. Dr. Brennan currently serves as Deputy Assistant Secretary of Commerce for International Affairs and Acting Director of the U.S. Climate Change Science Program."

Editor's note: "Censoring Science: Inside the Political Attack on Dr. James Hansen and the Truth of Global Warming" by Mark Bowen is out. Early reports (no I have not read it) suggest that the book does not shy away from name calling, whining, and finger pointing. Indeed, one NASA person is referred to as the "Anti-christ". Oh well. The author has written some really good books - so I am certain that the book is entertaining, if nothing else.
