07 Dec 2005 Global Warming Briefs
More reports from the COP-11 global warming front.
From David Ridenour:
Peyton Knight and Ryan Balis attended a Sierra Club briefing that included comments from David Foster of the United Steelworkers of America making the outlandish claim that global warming is costing union jobs. Hurricane Katrina, Foster claimed, displaced workers in New Orleans and elsewhere.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, however, rejects the Katrina/global warming link.
From Peyton Knight:
It is absurdly cold here — our hotel is only about three or four blocks from the conference, yet if it were five or six blocks, I’m not sure we’d be alive right now (much to the elation of 99.9 percent of this conference).
