As next month's United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen draws near, climate-change promoters are flooding the media with news of pending eco-catastrophe.
Scientists are shocked by a massive iceberg floating into waters near the Australian Island of Macquarie. New Zealand's Otago Daily Times reports that satellites have located the iceberg more than 12 miles north of Macquarie and headed toward currents that could draw it closer to New Zealand or out into the Pacific Ocean.

As debate heats up in the Senate over its new cap-and-trade bill, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is pre-empting legislators' efforts to shackle greenhouse gas (GHG) emitters with new rules of its own.

Documents obtained this week from the U.S. Treasury Department reveal the Obama administration's plans for a massive global-warming tax through "cap and trade" legislation that has already passed the House.
