INTERNATIONAL
WHALING COMMISSION MAKES LITTLE PROGRESS

SANTIAGO, Chile, July 1, 2008 (ENS) – The International
Whaling Commission wound up its annual meeting here Friday without
achieving new protections for whales or resolving the deep rifts that
divide the member governments into pro-whaling and pro-conservation
factions. The meeting centered on the future of the commission with only
brief clashes between the two factions, due to a strategy of avoiding
votes and attempting to reach consensus through discussion.

EXTREME
WEATHER EVENTS PREDICTED FOR WARMING NORTH AMERICA

WASHINGTON, DC, July 1, 2008 (ENS) – Atlanta
is thirsty, New York is sizzling, Des Moines is flooded – all these
situations have happened this year, and a new federal government report
predicts an increasing frequency of the same kinds of extremes across
North America as the planet warms. “This report addresses one of the most
frequently asked questions about global warming – what will happen to
weather and climate extremes?” said report co-chair Tom Karl, PhD, who
directs the National Climatic Data Center.
