When it comes to the sustainable management of the world’s golf courses, irrigation has always been a hot-potato issue. To help clarify the issues surrounding this controversy, researchers from the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in the Canary Islands recently published the results of a 25-year study that analyzed the way one of Spain’s oldest golf courses uses reclaimed water for irrigation.

Instead of being obsessed with trying to save the environment of the Gulf of Mexico, BP seems obsessed with trying to cover their rear ends and with limiting their legal liability. The truth is that instead of conducting an open, honest and transparent cleanup operation, BP has been intimidating reporters, lying to the public and abusing those who are trying to help. Not only that, but BP has now even gone so far as to hire professional mercenaries to protect their interests in the Gulf region. No wonder the American people are rapidly turning against BP.

Mowat also reported the Arctic pack ice was much less in that Viking discovery era than today. Continue reading Is The Theory Of Global Warming Actually True?
