The Anchorage Daily News has had several articles on the effects of global warming...some pretty emotional, like this one "Alaskans urge Congress to take action on global warming" and tells of the concerns of the eroding village of Shishmaref.
While it makes a good story, the plea that congress do something about it is like saying "make the sun cooler, please."

Is Environmentalism is the new socialist movement to control mankind? Interesting question. Also interesing that the first thing Mikael Gorbachov did when USSR dissolved -- was get into the green party. Guess he was just a closet environmentalist all those years as president of the most environmentally friendly nation on earth.
