      THE COST OF U.S. FOREST-BASED CARBON SEQUESTRATION: NEW REPORT
      ===============================================================

      " The Cost of Forest-Based Carbon Sequestration" investigates the
      potential for incorporating land-use changes into climate policy. The
      new Pew
      Center report looks at the true "opportunity costs" of using land for
      sequestration, in contrast with other productive uses. The report
      also examines
      the many factors that drive the economics of storing carbon in
      forests over long
      periods of time.

      makers.

      "Innovative Approaches to Climate Change: A State-Federal Workshop"
      included panel discussions and keynote presentations from top state

      ADDRESSING GLOBAL WARMING CLAIMS IN M. CRICHTON'S "STATE OF FEAR"
      ===============================================================

      Michael Crichton's latest novel, "State of Fear", contains a number
      of
      strawman arguments, misinterpretations of the scientific literature,
      and even a
      few misleading statements drawn from the so-called "skeptics". The
      Pew
      Center has compiled answers to key questions raised by M. Crichton in
      "State of Fear".
