Warming-suit activists cite new study

Reuters: "A study of a 2003 heatwave in Europe may give Pacific islanders and environmentalists new ammunition for legal cases blaming the United States for global warming, advocates said on Thursday." The usual bigger-than-tobacco promises are made, and the usual activists quoted (from Greenpeace and the "Climate Justice Program which advises plaintiffs"). See Dec. 1, Sept. 4, Aug. 18, etc.
