Excerpt from the Stern Report on "Global Warming"
"That's why I'm optimistic - having done this review - that we have the time
and knowledge to act. But only if we act internationally, strongly and
urgently." ......."We can't wait the five years it took to negotiate Kyoto - we
simply don't have the time.
We accept we have to go further (than Kyoto)." - Sir Nicholas Stern

The Denial Machine
Reporter: Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-
For years the global warming debate has swirled like
a firestorm. Science has been tossed about in a
tornado of spin from doomsayers and doubters, deep
green activists and fossil fuel lobbyists.
How did the future of the planet become such a
A few weeks ago the pre-eminent body of climate
scientists, the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on
Climate Change, reaffirmed that global warming is
real, happening now and very likely caused by human
Late last year a report to the British Government
likened the potential economic impact of global
warming to the two world wars and the Great
Yet some scientists insist that climate change, if
it’s happening at all, could be a good thing.
This report from the Canadian Broadcasting
Corporation investigates the campaign to deny the
science of global warming and slow international
action against it. It tracks the activities of a
small group of North American scientists, some of
whom previously worked for Big Tobacco and who are
now receiving donations from large oil and coal
interests. It also examines how key planks of the
fossil fuel industry’s case were adopted by
governments in the US and Canada…

Skin Deep is a personal care product safety guide with in-depth
information on 14,841 products - 1,052 brands of lotion, lip balm,
deodorant, sunscreen and other popular products - and the 7,093
ingredients that form them. With its core of 37 toxicity and regulatory
databases, Skin Deep provides safety ratings and brand-by-brand

(WASHINGTON) — Environmental Working Group (EWG) will unveil a vastly
expanded version of its interactive personal care product safety guide
for consumers, "Skin Deep," Monday, Oct. 17. The searchable database
features brand-by-brand safety rankings and in-depth information on over
14,000 shampoos, lotions, deodorants, sunscreens and other products from
almost 1,000 brands. In Skin Deep, consumers can create customized
product lists for their personalized safety needs — products free of
carcinogens and fragrance, for instance — while manufacturers can
construct one-of-a-kind safety assessments rating all their product
ingredients at once and aiding in reformulation plans. EWG designed this
service to fill safety gaps left by an industry that has publicly
assessed only 11 percent of the 10,500 ingredients the government has
documented in personal care products.
