Current Editorial
Elitist Leaders Out of Step with Scientific Reality: Ideology is subverting science in the international political quest to restructure the world to the liking of the enlightened favored few.

Current Book Review
Global Warming in a Politically Correct Climate: How Truth Became Controversial: This eye-opening description of the roles played by a host of institutions with vested interests in promoting scary scenarios of catastrophic - but unreal - environmental dangers is a must-read for everyone concerned about the future of human society and the world of nature.

Subject Index Summaries
Carbon Sequestration (General): A number of recent studies have revealed that the ongoing rise in the air's CO2 content should enable the biosphere to sequester ever-greater amounts of carbon, even in the face of possible global warming.

Coral Reefs - Responses to Temperature Stress: Corals possess the capacity to respond to the challenge of global warming via adaptive measures that enable them to accommodate rising water temperatures.

Current Journal Reviews
Rainfall Variability in West Africa: The Models Fail Again: A comparison of modeled versus observed precipitation data from West Africa highlights several model shortcomings that lead to inaccurate precipitation predictions.

Dimethyl Sulfide: It's Role in Stabilizing Earth's Climate: A review of the scientific literature confirms biologically-produced dimethyl sulfide to be a major player in a variety of important ocean-atmosphere processes that act to counter global warming.

The Abrupt End of the Little Ice Age in an Alpine Region of Central North America: A hundred and fifty years ago, a climatic event occurred that would have climate alarmists salivating uncontrollably were it to happen today.

Penguins and Climate Change: Some Like It (Relatively) Hot: Antarctic penguins must be booing the climate alarmists.

CO2-Enhanced Carbon Sequestration in the Soil of a Grassland Ecosystem: After five years of exposure to doubled atmospheric CO2 concentrations, a moderately-fertile grassland in central California appears to have sequestered more than the normal amount of carbon in its soils.
