EARTH HAS BECOME BRIGHTER, BUT NO ONE IS SURE WHY

by Kenneth Chang
New York Times
May 6, 2005

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/05/06/science/06bright.html

Reversing a decades-long trend toward "global dimming," Earth's surface has become brighter since 1990, scientists are reporting today.

The brightening means that more sunlight - and thus more heat - is reaching the ground. That could partly explain the record-high global temperatures reported in the late 1990's, and it could accelerate the planet's warming trend.

"We see the dimming is no longer there," said Dr. Martin Wild, a climatologist at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich and the lead author of one of three papers analyzing sunlight that appear in today's issue of the journal Science. "If anything, there is a brightening."

Some scientists have reported that from 1960 to 1990, the amount of sunshine reaching the ground decreased at a rate of 2 percent to 3 percent per decade.

In some places, the brightening of the 1990's has more than offset the dimming, Dr. Wild said. In other places, like Hong Kong, which lost more than a third of its sunlight, the dimming has leveled off, but skies remain darker than in the past. In a few places, like India, the dimming trend continues, he said.

The new papers also call attention to a major gap in the understanding of climate. Scientists do not exactly know what caused the dimming and the brightening, or how they affect the rest of the climate system.

Earth reflects about 30 percent of the incoming sunlight back into space. Slight changes in the reflectivity, possibly caused by changes in cloud cover and air pollution, can have as much impact on the climate as heat-trapping greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide.

Some scientists say that the dimming and the brightening might explain why for many years temperatures on Earth lagged what was predicted by many climate models and then shot upward more recently.

"I think what could have happened is the dimming between the 60's and 80's counteracted the greenhouse effect," Dr. Wild said. "When the dimming faded, the effects of the greenhouse gases became more evident. There is no masking by the dimming anymore."

But Dr. Rachel T. Pinker, a professor of meteorology at the University of Maryland who led the team that wrote one of the other papers, said the picture might not be so simple. More sunlight should increase evaporation rates, leading to more clouds, and the additional cloud cover could then increase Earth's reflectivity, limiting the warming effect.

"I think that's a complex issue," Dr. Pinker said. "There are many feedbacks involved."

The findings of Dr. Wild and his colleagues are based on data through 2001 from a network of ground-based sensors that directly measure the sunlight hitting the ground. But the sensors are not evenly distributed, with the greatest number in Europe, few in Africa and South America, and none covering the 70 percent of Earth's surface that is water.

Dr. Pinker's team analyzed satellite data from 1983 to 2001 that covered the globe. Its findings about brightening, which basically agree with Dr. Wild's, rely on computer models to estimate how much sunlight reaches the surface.

Finally, a team led by Dr. Bruce A. Wielicki of NASA's Langley Research Center in Virginia reports that measurements from the agency's Aqua satellite show a slight decrease in the amount of light reflected off Earth since 2000, which corresponds to a brightening on the surface.

The NASA findings conflict with measurements, reported last year, suggesting that Earth had resumed dimming since 2000. Those measurements looked at the illumination of the dark side of the Moon by light reflected off Earth.

Dr. Philip R. Goode, a professor of physics at the New Jersey Institute of Technology who was one of the researchers behind last year's report, said it was not clear why the findings differed so markedly. "We've been working with them to understand the origins of the differences," Dr. Goode said of the Wielicki group.

Dr. Wielicki said his data supported a report last month by a team led by Dr. James E. Hansen of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York. In a paper published on Science's Web site, Dr. Hansen and his colleagues said much of the excess heat generated by global warming has been stored in the oceans. Even if no more greenhouse gases are added to the atmosphere, they said, Earth will continue to warm by 1 degree Fahrenheit over the coming decades, as the heat in the oceans is released into the air.

Dr. Wielicki said the amount of energy coming from the Sun matched the gain in heat in the oceans reported by Dr. Hansen. "It is consistent with the ocean heat storage that the oceanographers are seeing," Dr. Wielicki said, "and it is consistent with the climate models' predictions of what the heat storage should be."

Dr. Robert J. Charlson, a professor of atmospheric sciences at the University of Washington and an author of a commentary that accompanied the three papers, said, "This set of papers, taken together, calls attention for more emphasis on research in these topics."

But he added, "Unfortunately, impediments have come up." Four years' worth of data from the Earth Radiation Budget Satellite is unanalyzed, he said, because there is no money for scientists to work with it.

Another satellite, the Deep Space Climate Observatory, which was scheduled to be launched on a space shuttle, awaits in storage. Proposed budget cuts in earth science research at NASA could limit the analysis of data from other satellites, Dr. Charlson said.

Nebeneinkünfte: Campact-Aktion an den Ältestenrat zeigt Wirkung

Nachdem wochenlang in Sachen Nebeneinkünfte nichts mehr zu hören war, kam nach Beginn der Campact-Aktion wieder Bewegung in den politischen Prozess. Die Rechtsstellungskommission des Ältestenrates trat mehrmals zusammen und wird sich nach Campact-Informationen noch ein letztes Mal am 12. Mai mit dem Thema Nebeneinkünfte befassen. Danach soll der rot-grüne Vorschlag in den Bundestag eingebracht werden. Durch Ihren Druck wurde der Vorschlag verbessert: Er enthält nun eine weitere Einkommensstufe in Höhe von 1.000 €. Damit können Abgeordnete mit geringfügigen Einkommen von denen mit hohen Nebenverdiensten unterschieden werden.

Innerhalb weniger Tage haben sich über 1.300 Menschen an der Campact-Aktion beteiligt. Spiegel-online, heise.de und taz berichteten:

The Dumbing Down Of The American Mind

by Doug Soderstrom
23 April, 2005
Countercurrents.org

There is a very dangerous phenomenon that seems to be occurring in the United States of America; something that I refer to as “the dumbing-down of the American mind,” a nearly willful tendency for Americans to forgo reality in favor of believing what they want to believe. But how could such a thing have occurred in such a proud nation, one that, according to George Bush, has become known as a bastion of freedom and democracy, a bright light for the whole world to see?

In my opinion, there are five factors that can explain such a phenomenon. [...] Read all about it at: http://www.countercurrents.org/us-soderstrom230405.htm or http://tinyurl.com/cua57

Hitting the Middle Class, Again

TODAY'S EDITORIALS
Published: May 3, 2005
The New York Times

As he moved into the home stretch of his 60-day Social Security road show last week, it became clear that President Bush had saved the worst for last.

Mr. Bush endorsed a proposal that would take a huge bite out of the Social Security retirement benefits for the middle class, claiming that would close some 70 percent of the system's financing gap. That figure is almost certainly overstated. Under the proposed reductions, young workers who now earn about $36,000 would face a 16 percent cut; those earning about $58,000 would face a cut of 25 percent, and those earning $90,000, 29 percent. People not yet in the work force would face even larger reductions. [..] Read the rest at:

Filibuster Frist

New Leaders Council

Have you heard what's happening at Princeton?

Students have initiated a protest against Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist's plan to end the filibuster and prevent Senate Democrats from stopping extremist judicial nominations. The "Filibuster Frist" protest, taking place in front of Princeton's Frist Campus Center (that's right - paid for by the Tennessee Senator's family) is still going strong after a full week. The mock filibuster has gained national attention and has put pressure on the Senate Republican Leader.

When Filibuster Frist began, students had no idea what kind of success they would have. They hoped to make some waves at Senator Frist’s alma mater; but it was clear after a couple days that this was going to have far-reaching ripple effects. Picking up momentum, students began congregating in droves to the filibuster, offering no shortage of help. Soon enough, local and state press had picked up on the story and calls of support were coming in from across the nation.

On Dec. 14, 2004, in the predawn hours, a large convoy of U.N. troops entered the Port-au-Prince slum of Cite Soleil. They began firing. Esterlin Marie Carmelle was in bed with her 2-year-old son, Herlens. Her husband got out of bed to get ready for work. The shooting intensified, and she remained in bed beside her child. According to a Harvard Law School report the following occurred:

"Ms. Carmelle recalled, she `felt something warm' on her arm and said to her husband, 'I feel like I got hit with a bullet.' She told us that she realized that 'it wasn't me who had been shot,' as her boy lay limp and lifeless beside her, his 'blood and brain matter were sliding down my arm.' Though Ms. Carmelle said that she then passed out, her husband told us that a stray bullet had entered their shack with such force that it had removed part of their child's head, leaving Herlens to die in his mother's arms.''

Now that it's clear that his controversial private-paid trips abroad will be put under a microscope in Congress, Tom DeLay is in serious danger of being declared in violation of House ethics rules, legal experts say.

Lawyers who specialize in ethics cases believe that the Republican House majority leader from Texas might be in technical breach of at least a few congressional regulations. According to published reports, a registered foreign agent paid for one of DeLay's overseas trips and a registered lobbyist used his credit card to pay for another foreign airfare -- actions the rules prohibit. DeLay may also have accepted gifts that exceeded congressional limits, taken an expense-paid trip overseas for longer than the rules allow and not disclosed all of the benefits he received.

The NYT hawks another war

05/05/05

Like almost every other mainstream U.S. media outlet, the New York Times has provided little coverage of Vanunu, so the American public has scant knowledge of his real-life experience with truth and consequences. Likewise, the Times has little to say about Washington's extreme hypocrisies while the newspaper and the government denounce certain other countries for their nuclear programs. But the New York Times has not skimped on coverage that adds to momentum for a military attack on Iran. And evidently the newspaper of record is just getting started...

Once more, we dip our ladle into the alphabet soup of character. Only this time the letter that keeps coming up is B for Bully. Ever since John Bolton was nominated to be US ambassador to the United Nations, he's been described as abrasive, brash, difficult. He's been called a 'serial abuser' of underlings and a 'quintessential kiss-up, kick-down sort of guy.' Questions about whether he has the T for Temperament to be our diplomat to the world body now have his nomination teetering. I got into this character cookbook business way back in the 1970s when there was a subversive little motto that said, 'The personal is political.' ... It suggested something about our political leaders. Character was a matter of private as well as public behavior. How our leaders behaved to their families, office staff, and underlings said something about who they were and how they would treat the rest of us...

Lessons we (should have) learned in Vietnam

This week marks the 30th anniversary of America's ignominious withdrawal from Vietnam in helicopters from the roof of the American Embassy in Saigon. The South Vietnamese capital, soon to be renamed Ho Chi Minh City, fell to Communist forces on April 30, 1975. President Ford proclaimed the end of the war on May 7. Not since the Civil War 100 years before had the country been so divided. What lessons have we learned, or should we have learned, from the Vietnam experience? * Be sure there is a solid, enduring national consensus about where the national interest lies. ... * Be sure it is the US national interest that drives involvement and not the national interest of another country. ... * Think the problem through: Are we going to stick with our original policy even though it turns out to be mistaken?"

It's premature to write an obituary, but there's no question that America's news media -- the newspapers, newsmagazines, and television networks that people once turned to for all their news -- are experiencing what psychologists might call a major life passage.
