All the junk that's fit to debunk
Claims that man-made pollution is causing "unprecedented" global warming have been seriously undermined by new research which shows that the Earth was warmer during the Middle Ages.

Echo is a membership organization, consisting of individuals and organizations in America and 14 foreign countries. We believe the environment includes human beings who prosper or perish as the result of their stewardship of natural resources.

A new era of environmentalism is dawning. But change is not coming from the same old places. Proponents of this new brand of environmentalism share a deep respect for nature with others in the movement, but they are taking decidedly more pragmatic approaches to solving environmental problems. These new environmentalists celebrate successful efforts to clean up the environment and are optimistic about the creative ways in which people are working to protect natural resources, endangered species, and diverse ecosystems. At the same time, these new environmentalists acknowledge a host of problems associated with mainstream environmentalism today. What is this new environmentalism? And what distinguishes it from the old? aBetterEarth is a project designed to explore these questions and much, much more.
