@roger,
I don't know that book but I know that environmental legislation now being reviewed in Congress mentions "carbon credits" and says nothing about "methane credits". So that's the end of that.

This about sums it up...

Nobody Know Nothin’- Boutte, Sanchez, Lynn


And then one day they were fishing for some food
and up from the Gulf came a bubbling goo...

No, nobody know nothin’
No, nobody know nothin’
11 people dead and this is what they said
No, nobody know nothin’

No, nobody know nothin’
No, nobody know nothin’
When we asked BP, they all sang out in harmony
No, nobody know nothin’

No, nobody know nothin’
No, nobody know nothin’
When we asked Halliburton, they said one thing’s for certain
No, nobody know nothin’

No, nobody know nothin’
No, nobody know nothin’
When we asked Trans Ocean why, they just told another lie
No, nobody know nothin’

No, nobody know nothin’
No, nobody know nothin’
Did the government do their best, you better watch your back Key West
No, nobody know nothin’

No, nobody know nothin’
No, nobody know nothin’
For years we’ll play the dirge, for all the fisherman out of work
No, nobody know nothin’

@JPB,
The musicians are speaking out the only way they know how... through their music.

Sorry Ain't Enough No More

Via the Poison Control Center website, www.AAPCC.org :
As of 4:00 a.m. Tuesday, July 13, 2010, U.S. poison centers have taken the following number of calls regarding the Gulf Oil spill:

740 exposure calls (calls that involve someone being exposed to an oil-spill related toxin, be it oil, dispersant, food contamination or other associated toxin.)

Poison centers have taken exposure calls from the following states or countries: Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia.

Of those, Louisiana has received the most calls: 220, followed by Florida (193) Alabama (169), and Mississippi (89).

Most exposures so far have been via inhalation, though dermal exposure is also commonly reported. Most common symptoms reported have included: headaches, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, throat irritation, eye pain, coughing/choking and dizziness.

@Robert Gentel,
That is the oil spill in a nutshell but the problem is, it is more than just that. The oil spill is getting progressively worse each day and is causing health affects across the U.S.

A bit of a swift overview Ben but very interesting nevertheless.

@hawkeye10,
Sometimes they make a distinction between spamming posts and a link that happens to promote someone's own web site. In a borderline case, maybe seniority counts.

@electronicmail,
It's not a recent publication, but I highly recommend it. Barnes killed his future with one chapter that was little more than an explicit sex scene, but you could learn a lot about weather and climate.
