Greenhouse gas emissions rising
The UN has released new data showing an upward trend in emission of greenhouse gases, and called for urgent action from rich countries.

The data showed a 2.4% total increase in emissions across 41 industrialised countries between 2000 and 2004.

Britain, France and Germany were "relatively close" to achieving Kyoto Protocol targets, the UN said.

The US remained the world's biggest greenhouse gas polluter - its emissions increased 15.4% between 1990 and 2004.

Under the Kyoto Protocol, industrialised countries agreed in 1997 to cut emissions of the gases blamed for human-induced climate change to 5% below 1990 levels.

1. The cloud is back over Detroit
When I was a kid, we'd come to Detroit from Grand Rapids, and by about Novi, you could start smelling the pollution.

Between Governors Milliken (R) and Blanchard (D), lots of steps were taken, along with federal guidelines, and the smell went away gradually. The AET tests for our cars, which were kind of burdensome on many, were done away with early in Engler's term. Bush has relaxed a lot of pollution guidelines. The smell is back. I noticed it most after going to my sister's house in St. Joe or Grandpa's in Traverse City.

If you say "ManBearPig" enough times, that makes global warming not real.
