Gore's "Inconvenient Truth" wins documentary Oscar Mon Feb 26, 2007 9:17am ET http://today.reuters.com/news/ Al Gore's 'Inconvenient Truth'? -- $30,000 utility bill (2/27/07 - NASHVILLE, TN) - Armed with Gore's utility bills for the last two years, the Tennessee Center for Policy Research charged Monday that the gas and electric bills for the former vice president's 20-room home and pool house devoured nearly 221,000 kilowatt-hours in 2006, more than 20 times the national average of 10,656 kilowatt-hours. "If this were any other person with $30,000-a-year in utility bills, I wouldn't care," says the Center's 27- year-old president, Drew Johnson.

Special agents from the Interior Departments inspector general's office are questioning the two government scientists about the paper they wrote on drowned polar bears, suggesting mistakes were made in the math and as to how the bears actually died, and the department is eyeing another study currently underway on bear populations. The "stranded polar bear" photo continues to grab headlines, even after yet another thorough debunking. In what has become the furry, cuddly symbol of all that is wrong with the climate change debate, the now ubiquitous photo was splashed across news pages worldwide, with captions such as this from the Daily Mail (click for article and image): They cling precariously to the top of what is left of the ice floe, their fragile grip the perfect symbol of the tragedy of global warming. The student who took the photograph, however, gives a slightly different account: They were on the ice when we found them and on the ice when we left. They were healthy, fat and seemed comfortable on their iceberg . Amanda Byrd, an Australian graduate student at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF), says she took the picture around three years ago - in the summer. The photograph was not taken by environmentalists but as part of a field trip with the university.... View Full Document
