United States Climate Action Report

A story by Andrew C. Revkin "U.S. Predicting Steady Increase For Emissions: Report to U.N. Overdue -- Experts Critical," in The New York Times, March 3, 2007, anticipates the new United States Climate Action Report, as confirming a discouraging prospect to controlling greenhouse gasses with our current policies. The 2002 report (pdf) is here. (This browsed only in IE for me.) It mentions the "United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change." Another interesting document comes from Friends of the Earth, "Global Warming: How It Might Affect You", here.


There was a brief rally on the west side of the Capitol in Washington DC on March 20, for Climatecrisis (associated with Al Gore's film "An Inconvenient Truth") and for saving the arctic.
