Global Warming News Round-Up

On the heels of yesterday's coal execs hearing Capitol Hill, there are many good round-ups of how it went. We'll of course toot our own horn and mention that Bruce Nilles' summary of it is currently at the top of Grist's front page. But if you want other takes on it, the Associated Press, NY Times, and Mother Jones also had write-ups.

It's important to note that as Michael Carey of the Ohio Coal Association kept saying during yesterday's hearing that the Climategate scandal proved that global warming isn't real, another report came out stating that Climategate proved nothing - it was a fake scandal. Read the Mother Jones article on it to learn more.

Moving on - are you sneezing a lot more this spring? Well guess what, global warming is messing with your allergies now. That's right, you're allergic to the planet getting any warmer. In this Time article, global warming is going to keep stuffing up your sinuses and making your eyes water:
The bad news is that in a warmer world, allergies are likely to get worse - and that's going to cost sufferers and the rest of us. A new report released on Wednesday by the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) found that global warming will likely increase pollen counts in the heavily populated eastern section of the country and that the effect of climate change could push the economic cost of allergies and asthma well above the current $32 billion price tag.
Finally - what are you doing for Earth Day? It's next Thursday, and President Obama released a video yesterday calling on Americans to make their lives more energy efficient. Watch:

Maybe you should make a pledge to do so using our Earth Day map? Yes, you should!
