That "environment" thing again.

What to make of statistics. Scientists claim that the earth got "darker" in the last half of the 20th century.

"Defying expectation and easy explanation, hundreds of instruments around the world recorded a drop in sunshine reaching the surface of Earth, as much as 10 percent from the late 1950's to the early 90's, or 2 percent to 3 percent a decade."

from [NYTimes].

And we've got another disaster movie coming, but this time it regards global warming [The Day After Tomorrow], and its inflaming people [NYTimes]. Apparently, [MoveOn] believes that the "right" doesn't want us to see this [movie].

What to make of all this?

on the whole environmental tip is this harper's article, graciously archived by findarticles.com. it is written by richard manning, author of the anti-agricultural tome against the grain: how agriculture has hijacked civilization.
