Good news from Britain's wind energy. It is set to exceed expectations with 50% more wind farms powering British homes and industry by 2010 than predicted four years ago, according to new figures published by the British Wind Energy Association (BWEA).
The European Parliament's Environment Committee has said that the EU must wean the transport sector off oil entirely within a generation.
I remember at the time of the Exxon Valdez spill that one of the Trustees of the Oil Spill Board said something like "Lawyers not yet born will work on this one".
The BP spill on the North Slope is still reverberating - here is a post to the "safepipelines" discussion group:
We are facing at least a metre rise in sea-level by the end of this century, scientists have warned. Half of the Greenland ice cap and vast areas of Antarctica are destined to melt if climate change continues unabated.
Today is the seventeen Anniversary of the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska, the worst spill in America's history. Over eleven million gallons poured into Prince William Sound polluting the pristine environment and devastating the local wildlife and with it the local salmon fishing industry.
The WSJ reports that ExxonMobil is the key funder of a front group called Public Interest Watch which has been pushing the IRS to audit Greenpeace.
We are used to Arnie's muscle winning the day in Hollywood block-busters, but now it seems that the California's Governor has won a different victory. He has managed to split the once united front of the oil companies on climate change.

A staggering three-quarters of the American population are "disgruntled" about weak leadership from President Bush on climate change, and argue that the government should be doing more to promote renewable energy.
