The August 2005 issue of Environment & Climate News opens with news that leaders of the G8 industrialized nations moved closer to the U.S. position on global warming, giving a cold shoulder to the Kyoto Protocol and welcoming innovation and market forces instead.

Also on page 1: U.S. Senate passes an energy bill; U.S. Supreme Court expands local government's eminent domain power; and a U.S. Senate subcommittee criticizes Nature Conservancy practices that appear to violate its tax-exempt status.

The issue also addresses New Source Review, asbestos litigation reform in Florida, improving the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), climate change, state-level actions to curb eminent domain abuse, aquatic weeds, shale oil recovery, hydrogen fuel cell autos, the Endangered Species Act, and privately funded environmental seminars for judges. Heartland President Joseph L. Bast exposes the highly partisan nature of the National Commission on Energy Policy, and Science Director Jay Lehr reviews Skywatch West: The Complete Weather Guide, which Lehr calls "a book for the weather-child in all of us."
