But how does carbon dioxide affect tomatoes?

The icebergs are melting, Los Angeles and New York might as well just give up now, and SPF 45 ain’t gonna help you when the ozone layer disappears.

What could be worse? Poison ivy that packs a more potent punch. Save the planet, y’all!

    I’m doing my part, I’ve only had the car out of the garage once this week. This is all we need (the super poison ivy) just the word urushiol makes my skin crawl.

    The June 1 issue of the NY Times had an interesting article on the topic: “Studies Portray Tropical Arctic in Distant Past” by Andrew Revkin.

    opening graf:
    The first detailed analysis of an extraordinary climatic and biological record from the seabed near the North Pole shows that 55 million years ago the Arctic Ocean was much warmer than scientists imagined — a Floridian year-round average of 74 degrees.

    Login required for the link:

    It’s a study not on why the earth is warming, but on why it cooled down to its present state; i.e. that the Arctic used to be tropical—the reason ice sheets formed was a drop in CO2 (the opposite of what is thought to be happening).

    Fun term: “drop stone.”

    Also, if you go to globalwarming.org you’ll find a contrary view to the whole debate promoted by an obliquely named organization. It looks like the site first appeared in 2000, yet its parent organization (if that’s the right term) still doesn’t have its own site up (they call themselves Consumer Alert). You’d think that Dick Cheney would be a bit more thorough (oops…I’m getting conspiratorial).
