The National Academy of Sciences, reaching that conclusion in a broad review of scientific work requested by Congress, reported today that the "recent warmth is unprecedented for at least the last 400 years and potentially the last several millennia." A panel of top climate scientists told lawmakers that the Earth is heating up and that "human activities are responsible for much of the recent warming." Their 155- psige report said average global surface temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere rose about 1 degree during the 20th century. This is shown in boreholes, re- treating glaciers and other evidence found in nature, said Gerald North, a geosciences professor at Texas A&M University who chaired the academy's panel. The report was requested in November by the chairman of the House Science Committee, Rep. Sherwood Boehlert, R-N.Y, to address naysayers who question whether global warming is a threat. Last year, when the House Energy and Commerce Committee chairman, Rep. Joe Barton, R- Texas, launched an investigation of three climate scientists, 1 %jj6pehl.ert said Barton should try to learn from scientists, not intimidate them. Boehlert said today the report shows the value of having scientists advise Congress. "There is nothing in this report that should raise any doubts about the broad scientific consensus on global climate change," he said. Other new research today showed that global warming produced about half of the extra hurricane-fueled warmth in the North Atlantic in 2005, and natural cycles were a minor factor, according to Kevin Trenberth and Dennis Shea of the Commerce Department's National Center for Atmospheric Research. Then- study is being published by the American Geophysical Union. The Bush administrati9n has x , maintained that the threat is not* severe enough to warranfcnew pollution controls that the White House says would have cost 5 million Americans their jobs. GOP-run Senate kills minimum wage raise WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican-controlled Senate smothered a proposed election- year increase in the minimum wage Wednesday, rejecting Democratic claims that it was past time to boost the $5.15 hourly pay floor that has been in effect for nearly a decade. The 52-46 vote was eight short of the 60 needed for approval under budget rules and came one day after House Republican leaders made clear they do not intend to allow a vote on the issue, fgarj-j ing it might pass. ! :«.",:} The Senate vote marked the ninth time since 1997 that Democrats there have proposed — and Republicans have blocked — a stand-alone increase in the minimum wage. The debate fell along predictable lines. "Americans believe that no one who works hard for a living should have to live in poverty. A job should lift you out of poverty, not keep you in it," said Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass. He said a worker paid $5.15 an hour would earn $10,700 a year, "almost $6,000 below the poverty line for a family of three." Kennedy also said lawmakers' annual pay has risen by roughly $30,000 since the last increase in the minimum wage. DemoSwantehange !5^%$^te in Iraq; GOP backs Bush WASHINGTON (AP) — Ahead of votes on U.S. troop presence in Iraq, Republicans argued today that the United States must stay put to help the fledgling Iraqi government while Democrats demanded the Bush administration make clear that American forces won't be in Iraq forever. "We must give them that support and not send a signal that we're going to pull possibly the rug out from under them," Sen. John Warner, R-Va., said. "It is tune to tell the Iraqis that we have done what we can do militarily," Sen. Russ Feingold, D-Wis., answered. The GOP-controUed Senate was Democra'i deploying_U.S. troops from Iraq this year, a week after both houses of Congress soundly rejected withdrawal timetables. Summer Sizzler...Hot Hot HOT!!!
