Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Keep your chin up amigo and look for the good news!  All 10-12K NYC taxis must switch to hybrid vehicles by 2012. This should inspire other cities to follow along.  The price of gasoline may hit $4/gal this summer. At some point the US population has to become acquainted with the bad news - disappearing oil.  The US is considering banning incandescent light bulbs (along with other countries) in favor of more energy efficient ones.  New LED technology may be the energy winner.

Lets see, new wind farms in Calif, West Va, etc etc.

And, more tropical storms (this summer/fall) along with the Western droughts you mentioned  (not good things for the persons affected) but certainly warnings to those who resist the less obvious signs of GW.

Makes me feel a little better already.
