The December 2007 issue of Environment & Climate News covers a wide range of today's key environment issues. On page 1:

  • A British High Court ruled in October that former Vice President Al Gore's global warming film, An Inconvenient Truth, is too partisan, political, and riddled with errors to be shown in public schools without a disclaimer.
  • Environmental Defense has issued a study raising concerns about the effect increasing ethanol use will have on the nation's environment.
  • The number of days on which ozone levels in New England states exceeded federal standards continued a long-term decline this year.
  • Property rights supporters rallied in opposition to a proposed law that would increase federal government power over private lands.

Also in this issue: Antarctic sea ice, the fake consensus over global warming, energy legislation, nuclear power, electricity pricing in Illinois, ozone standards, hurricanes, geo-engineering to combat warming, pesticides, and solar power. Science Director Jay Lehr reviews It's Getting Better All the Time, published in 2001 by the Cato Institute, and The Truth about Organic Food by Alex Avery; Steven Milloy reviews two new children's books on global warming; and Research Director S.T. Karnick reviews the film Mine Your Own Business, now available on DVD.
