 Relativity passes latest test (October 2004) - News - PhysicsWeb
However, the Earth's gravity field is not uniform because of variations in the distribution of mass, and this lack of uniformity has a much bigger effect on the motion of the satellites than the Lense--Thirring effect.
Ciufolini and Pavlis say the total uncertainty in their measurements is plus or minus 10% if they allow for unknown sources of error, and they hope to improve on this accuracy with a new satellite called Weber-sat.

 Soaring global warming 'can't be ruled out' - earth - 26 January 2005 - New Scientist
The Earth may be much more sensitive to global warming than previously thought, according to the first results from a massive distributed-computing project.
The project tested thousands of climate models and found that some produced a world that warmed by a huge 11.5°C when atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations reached the levels expected to be seen later this century.
They start with a climate model that divides the Earth's surface into boxes hundreds of kilometres square and then change some of the 29 or so parameters that govern aspects of the atmosphere and weather.

At worst, the figures could be the first sign of the breakdown in the Earth's natural systems for absorbing the gas.
One of the predictions made by climate scientists in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is that as the Earth warms, the absorption of carbon dioxide by vegetation - known as "carbon sink" - is reduced.
Dr Keeling said since there was no sign of a dramatic increase in the amount of fossil fuels being burnt in 2002 and 2003, the rise "could be a weakening of the Earth's carbon sinks, associated with the world warming, as part of a climate change feedback mechanism.

 Unitarian Universalists for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
As a denomination we pride ourselves on being aware of the impacts we have on the earth and its inhabitants.
The researchers compared the global warming effect of five different diets, and found that a red meat-heavy diet and, surprisingly, a fish-heavy diet ranked as the most damaging, while a plant-based diet was the least.
While our Unitarian Universalist principles affirm the "inherent worth and dignity of every human being" and call us to seek "justice, equity and compassion in human relationships," we extend those principles to include other species who also possess an intrinsic value —whose well-being is vital to the whole—and whose rights should parallel our own.
