I had written a post a while back about why it makes sense to act on the environment now, even if we're not 100% sure how much impact mankind is having on it. Link to my prior post Now, there is a new book that has come out which looks at the changing environment from a business perspective. In his new book, "The Winds of Change" (Simon & Schuster), Eugene Linden talks about how the changes are real and how they could be drastic. He also criticizes the Bush administration. It's written about at this MSNBC article here...
I'm still PO'd, (but not surprised) by the report on "60 Minutes" which talks about how the annual environmental report was censored by the Bush administration so that we don't hear the things that they don't want us to hear, that global warming is accelerating. This is according to government scientist, James Hansen who is a leading researcher on global warming and co-author of the annual report.
