  1. NCAR Climate Risk Program Takes Hit, and NCAR Too

    The New York Times has reported the shut-down of the Center for Capacity Building, a small NCAR team that has been assessing potential impacts of climate change on poor countries, attracting wide global notice. The program, led by Michael Glantz, evidently was ended for budgetary reasons, as the National Center for Atmospheric Research has had to tighten its belt. NCAR, in Boulder, Colo., is one of the five or six leading climate modeling centers in the world. Over the last five years, a source told the Times, the center has lost 110 jobs.

But that is too facile. If nothing else, Heartlandâ''which describes itself as dedicated to â''promoting free-market solutions to social and economic problemsâ''â''mustered an impressive number of cosponsors: more than 50 organizations with a similar social philosophy, many of them in Europe.
